Now that the Endgame is done and dusted, it will be incomplete if you have not watched any of these Top 5 Movies that pave the way for the epic finale. In other words, you risk not fully understanding how the climatic ending unfolds without watching (re-watching) 5 of these monumental Marvel Movies. Yours truly me have compiled the following list so that you get to witness how our Mightiest Heroes sacrificed everything in order to save our earth again and again.
Warning: Spoilers ahead but I am sure you are expecting them.
Top 5 Movies That You Should Watch (Again)
Before Watching Endgame (Again)
1. Iron Man (2008)
This is one of the must-watch as Iron Man is no doubt one the most important heroes from the beginning of everything until the epic finale. In other words, this first Iron Man movie laid the foundation for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Without Tony Stark, there is no Endgame to begin with. That is how important he is. Period.
2. Doctor Strange (2016)
Doctor Stephen Strange gained his superpower after the "unfortunate" car accident which ended his career as a neurosurgeon. Then again that ending signified a new beginning for him as he was then transformed into Sorcerer Supreme in his quest to heal his hands. This movie is crucial as it introduces Strange who wields the power of Time Stone (Eye of Agamotto) which Thanos needed to wipe out half of the world population.
3. Black Panther (2018)
T'Challa aka Black Panther plays a pivotal role in the whole Avengers franchise. This Oscar-nominated movie depicts warriors from Wakanda who stand up against Thanos and his minions to save earth in Infinity War. The war took place on Wakandan soil bordered by Vibranium which promises epic battles among the earth greatest heroes against the so-called inevitable.
4. Infinity War (2018)
This movie is the culmination of 10 years of Marvel movies. Thanos-the main antagonist in this movie is on his way to do the inevitable. One by one, the Infinity Stones are imbued into his gauntlet. The Avengers do everything in their might to try to defeat him. But in the end, it is not enough to stop him from snapping his fingers and poof~50% of the universe is gone. Good thing is Nick Fury is able to contact Captain Marvel before he disappears as well.
5. Captain Marvel (2019)
The introduction of Carol Danvers is crucial as she is one of the few superheroes who could go against Thanos toe-to-toe which means she is really powerful on her own. After responding to Nick Fury's page, she appears at Avengers headquarters to prepare for the forthcoming Endgame. Thanks to the Tesseract power that she has absorbed, Carol harnesses the power of the universe and can beat almost anything in her path. This is evident in the epic finale.
There you have it folks, these are the top 5 must-watch movies that you need to watch before you watch Endgame (again). These movies will let you understand the epic climatic ending of Endgame if you have not watch the movie. If you have watched Endgame without filling yourself with any of the aforementioned movies, then you are missing out a lot.
