Now that Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is wrapping up this summer with Ant-Man, we thought it would be a good time to go back and revisit the entire first wave of Marvel’s superhero films, starting with Iron Man all the way through to The Avengers. It was only seven years ago that Marvel decided to step out on their own and completely change the blockbuster landscape, although there were definitely some growing pains along the way. We attempt to go through the series with a fine-tooth comb, examining such hard-hitting topics as casting and costume design, Intellicrops and integers, penile implants and post-credit scenes. So is the concept of a connected universe a boon or a burden? Is The Avengers still one of the best comic book movies ever made? Do the plots of these movies even make any sense?
