Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 1 (2014)
Week 10 – October 30, 2017
Guardians of the Galaxy was the first Marvel movie I saw but I didn’t realize it at the time. A bit of a confession: I didn’t come to Marvel movies because of the comics, I came to them because of the link to Disney.

WEEK 2 – September 5, 2017
Iron Man (2008)
Can any movie go wrong when it starts with a blaring AC/DC song? I think not. This is the first real movie in the Avengers series and introduces us to the larger than life character of Tony Stark/Iron Man. After being held hostage, billionaire engineer Stark creates a technologically advanced suit of armor to escape his captors and fight against the evils of the world.
Are you ready?!?! I am so excited to get the show on the road with our Marvel Movie Marathon. We are going to start our cinematic journey with Captain America: The First Avenger. I know. I know. It seems weird to put Captain America’s first movie first on our viewing list since it is really the fourth movie in the modern day Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, this movie is almost entirely a flashback to World War II where we find out how Steve Rogers actually became Captain America.
