Iron Man 3 was my favorite Iron Man movie throughout the whole Avengers timeline. In this movie we see Tony Stark instead of Iron Man. After the first Avengers movie when Captain America said, “without that suit who are you” this movie came out with Tony Stark losing everything. I liked this movie because it showed that Tony Stark did not need a suit to save the world but he needed his brain. The main villain in this movie is the Mandurian who destroys every suit Tony Stark owned.
Iron Man, one of the first Marvel Avengers movies, is an amazing, funny, truth-telling movie where Tony Stark, Iron Man, is kidnapped and is injured. He escapes by building a suit and then learns a semi-valuable lesson from his experience. Throughout the movie Tony Stark learns new things and improves himself. My favorite part about this movie is his suit. His suit was not made out of iron but yet he is Iron Man. I recommend this movie to many people who love watching superheroes fail while trying to fly.
I would recommend Captain Marvel for people who like Marvel movies where a superhero struggles to find himself/herself. In Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers was struggling with her ability to hold her powers in. Over time, throughout the movie, she learned to control her power and met Nick Fury, who became her friend, on Earth.
Ant-Man was marvelous. It has action, comedy, soul-searching, and adorable features. From many comics Hank Pym is Ant-Man but in this new Marvel Movie Scott Lang has been chosen by Hank to be Ant-Man. At the beginning of the movie Scott Lang came out of prison for a 5-year sentence for cat burgling. He steals the Ant-Man suit because he wanted money to see his daughter again. This movie is funny and has amazing battle scenes with Yellow-Jacket, the villain.
Captain America the Winter Soldier is an amazing movie to watch if you loved the first movie. It displays a new life where Steve Rogers works for Shield and learns that Hydra has been hiding under their noses inside Shield for years. Captain America teams up with Black Widow and the presumed to be dead Nick Fury to stop the Winter Soldier and to take down Hydra. I loved watching this movie because it was different from the first one.
