I am done with the MCU

After a long time, a movie post.
I won’t say I was a big MCU fan, ever. I did follow the movies in the Infinity Saga as they were entertaining. Wholesome superhero movies. 1-2 movies a year; I could easily handle that. I do remember waiting (not too excitedly) for Endgame, which I went to see with my nephew. Epic battle, many people die but the good guys win.

I wish Disney had left the MCU at that. But no, like a true corporate giant, they wanted to milk the MCU for whatever it was worth. And in the process, they ruined it.

They began Phase 4 with renewed energy. Movies, TV shows what not! I tried my best to keep up, I did.

My Effort

Even though I found WandaVision average, I finished all the episodes. I needed to keep in sync with the story, I said to myself or I will lose the plot.
Shang-Chi was below average but I still saw it.
The Falcon and the Winter soldier was below average. I could only watch a few episodes.
Eternals was so shit, I didn’t watch it altogether.
Spider-man No Way Home was good, but I felt the movie relied too much on the re-appearance of the older spideys to carry the movie.
Loki was average.
Multiverse of madness was a super bore. I couldn’t stand the Scarlett Witch.
Hawkeye was average.
Love and Thunder was surprisingly bad, especially coming from Taika Waititi.

But my MCU journey ended with Ms Marvel. I started watching it thinking there’s finally a superhero from the Indian sub-continent but it was such a drag, I gave up on the entire MCU after a few episodes.

Frankly speaking, Disney is putting out too much content and most of it is not up to the mark. If one watches only a few select movies, they will lose the plot quickly because important events happen in the TV shows, too.

Eventually, I realised I don’t have the willpower or the time to follow the MCU anymore and have given up on it. I may not even watch the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

Life is too short to consume average content.
