It’s almost time. Time to do whatever it takes to avenge the fallen and stop Thanos – if that’s even possible. Avengers: Endgame comes out on Thursday, April 25th and the world is anxiously waiting to see what is packed into those 3 hours and 2 minutes (yes, it’s that long).
There’s lots of talk about re-watching and getting caught up on the past Marvel movies before the new movie comes out. Some are doing full re-watches of the entire timeline (myself included), and others are just going back through their favorites. Obviously watching all of the movies is a great idea any time, but time is running out at this point and you also may not want to invest in getting some you don’t already own.
So, if you want to watch the essential movies that will provide the most context and help you understand what is likely to happen in Endgame, I’ve got you covered. Of course this is all based on Infinity War and what is expected to happen/continue; Marvel could throw us off and change this up on us once the movie is out.
These 5 movies will help you understand the state of things currently in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, know the relationships that exist, and get to know key players in the movie.
