In "Avengers: Infinity War," characters aren’t introduced; they just show up, and their behavior is entirely defined by the template set for them in other movies.After much thought I realized his gripes are true, but invalid. In fact, making this complaint about this movie could not be less appropriate. Why is this a dumb complaint?
There are 19 Marvel movies, aka the "Marvel Cinematic Universe" (MCU):
- Over the course of a decade, the MCU introduced most of the characters featured in Avengers Infinity War. Many characters appeared over and over again. I consider Captain America: Civil War to be a de facto third "Avengers" movie, as it features all of the Avengers, minus Thor and Hulk, plus Black Panther, Spider-Man, and Ant Man.
- At least five of these 19 movies are pure "origin stories".
- These 19 movies have been wildly popular: all but one of the MCU feature films were in the Top 15 Domestic Box Office the year they came out (thanks Box Office Mojo)
