In the increasingly crowded field of services streaming, Disney + has quickly established itself as an important competitor, with over 600 new and classic movies and series available on the platform since November 12. All those Disney + content includes a good dose of Pixar films and programs and Star wars, plus selections from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Disney has pointed out that the amount of Marvel movies in Disney Plus is modest at first but that it will gradually grow to cover the entire UCM; this, including several original series that you can only find on Disney +.
If you are a fan of Marvel movies and are looking to satisfy your craving for superheroes in Disney Plus, this is where you should start.
Hombre de Hierro
Sometimes, it is best to start at the beginning. Hombre de Hierro, the story of a brilliant vividor businessman who creates high-tech armor to fight villains, turned Robert Downey Jr. into the face of UCM and proved that even a less famous superhero is able to become a world cone with the right people behind and in front of the camera. This film not only marked the beginning of one of the most successful franchises in the history of Hollywood, but also made Marvel movies the new benchmark for superhero movies. And if this were not enough to be one of the most important Marvel movies in the franchise, it also paved the way for the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe with a short post-credit scene where a little thing known as the Avengers Initiative is presented .
Guardians of the Galaxy
Few films tested Marvel's ability to turn unknown characters into box office champions like Guardians of the Galaxy (2014). The film, which tells the story of a group of reluctant heroes who have to save the universe from a conquering villain together, used an unknown group of characters without many connections to the established UCM. Against all odds, this film directed by the then independent filmmaker James Gunn was a tremendous success and turned a talking raccoon that does not release weapons and a tree that walks in two of Hollywood's most popular heroes (he also converted the comic Chris Pratt , from Parks and Recreation, in a whole action hero).
Paul Rudd's debut as the Marvel superhero that changes its size had a complicated path to the screen the most problematic development of any modern UCM movie, in fact but the end result was bigger than his box office performance (somewhat disappointing , to be a Marvel movie). Rudd plays Scott Lang, a thief with a heart of gold that is recruited by the scientist Hank Pym (the original Ant-Man) to prevent his technology to alter measures from falling into the wrong hands. Despite his wild premise, Ant-man He became one of the most focused, fun and genuinely human films of the UCM to date, with a cast headed by Rudd, Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lilly. I saw her for the superhero adventure, but to love her for the memorable scenes with the occurrences of actor Michael Pea.
Marvel's first feature film headed by a single woman, Captain Marvel shut the mouth of the skeptics (and the trolls Internet) by becoming the first superhero movie about a woman to raise more than $ 1 billion ($ 1 billion) worldwide. Actress Brie Larson, with the starring role, quickly established herself as one of the most powerful heroes in the entire UCM. However, here the really impressive thing is that he did it with a surprisingly human story about a soldier of strong character who is recruited to fight in an interstellar war, which finds his identity, and his inner strength, after crashing on Earth. Captain Marvel It represents one of the strongest arguments so far about that, speaking of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the future certainly has a woman's face.
Avengers: Endgame, the last episode of the huge Marvel Infinity Saga that began with Hombre de Hierro, puts an end to a story that took 23 films to be told, facing almost all the heroes (and some villains) of the UCM against the cosmic conqueror Thanos. It became the highest-income film worldwide to date and ended the adventures of many of the most iconic characters in the franchise. Although UCM is a universe that moves on, Endgame It is one of the most important benchmarks in history that Marvel is narrating through its productions.
