Avengers: Infinity War Review – 10 Years In The Making, Worth Every Penny

By Mike Reyes

This is the bat crack that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been building up to since The Avengers first teased Thanos back in 2012, with Avengers: Infinity War sends the ball sailing out of the park and into the record books. 

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has grown into not only the gold standard for superhero movies, but also the wet dream for any studio looking to make long term investments with recursively incredible yields. It wasn’t overnight though, as ten years and 18 films helped shape that model that the world and fate of Marvel Studios’ current fortunes would depend on. So the fact that Avengers: Infinity War serves as a fantastical payoff to that stretch of road isn’t a surprise. Rather, the shock comes from how in a world of would-be cinematic franchises being killed almost as quickly as they’re created, the original player in the game can still make us all believe.
