With Guardians of the Galaxy breaking box office numbers as I type this and The Avengers: Age of Ultron set to dominate next summer, Marvel has decided to take a moment to breathe, step back, and have a good look at how they got to a film about a machine-gunnin’ raccoon. Posted to their official YouTube page, this recap covers the major events of Phase One and Phase Two (so far) and it cuts together so well.
Marvel made history by creating so many intricate connections between their diverse array of films as that’s pointed out here. The video covers everything from Iron Man to Guardians of the Galaxy (and even includes footage from Iron Man 2 and The Incredible Hulk because we can’t ignore that those happened) ending on a shot of formerly-teased villain Thanos resting upon his floating throne of rock. Excelsior!
