22 films that we love 3000!

11 years ago there was an idea, an idea to create a shared universe of remarkable movies based on comic books that would change everything in pop-culture and cinema as we know it. Like it or not, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is not only the largest franchise in movie history but also has redefined genres, reinvigorated comics, and inspired people all over the world. With Avengers: Endgame, we have finally seen the “Infinity Saga” come to and end, and while there are more comic book movies that will surely come out, we have truly reached an end of an era. This week join Tuong La and the Assembled Avengers Matt Barrow, Stenley Philippe, and Stephen Peeling as they celebrate the last 11 years of MCU movies and use the Infinity Gauntlet to snap together a Top 5 list of the best moments!
