    Probably all the time from now on. Not every movie can be titled "Avengers", even if they are a ensemble movie. So pretty much all the sequels, and even some of the origin movies, will have appearances by other characters. Some more and some less significant than others.

    I personally dont mind it. I like that Ragnarok is basically MCU Episode XVII instead of Thor 3.

    I have to admit that despite the large cast, I never felt that Cilvil War was an Avengers movie. It still focused on Steve, his supporting cast and the dangling threads from his movies.

    Probably for awhile.

    Marvel couldn't just make solo and origin movies all the time.Their universe is growing.

    Just like the comics we'll get team up movies.

    -Thor with dr strange and hulk

    -Spider-Man and iron man

    -Captain America civil war

    They couldn't possibly stay by themselves for too long.

    It's probably part of the phase 3 plans.

    I wonder who the guardians will team up with

    I feel like it manages to be both at the same time.

    I personally do mind it. I don't want to give up money to watch a Captain America movie and find myself watching an Avengers film in which Tony Stark is the co-lead. Nor do I want to give up money to see a Thor movie and find myself watching a semi-Avengers film in which the Hulk is also a co-lead.

    Save these films for one with an Avengers title or give Mark Ruffalo his solo Hulk film and RDJ his fourth Iron Man flick. But of course, Marvel won't. Unfortunately.


    I disagree. Completely.

    Steve's personal arc - whether it to do with Bucky, Sam, Sharon or HYDRA - were given rush jobs in compare to Tony's manpain over Sokovia and the whole Avengers assemble schtick.

    One would assume you're not in a very large group wanting such a thing.

    Expected to be what? Your whole hatred of cross pollination of characters in the Marvel films seems very irrational.

    It's not unprecedented. As I mentioned the comics do this sort of thing all the time.

    The Marvel Universe is growing. Movie characters will run into movie characters. TV characters meet other show's character (The Defenders)

    You can't expect characters to not meet up now.


    For example. Banner as Stark's soundboard/Therapist was sort of funny in Iron Man 3. That's something you'd see in the comics.

    Given that this was a huge part of the idea of the movies in the first place, and we're past the midway point of the overall arc, it's only going to be more common to see this level of cross-over.

    Or would everyone prefer they just slammed them together only in Infinity War Part 1 without having established more of a connection between them as a group before that?

    Exactly. What do some people think the lead up to the first "Avenger's" movie was?

    Random people getting together? No. Everyone had ties to the tessarect in someway

    -Stark's new arc reactor particle was built from research from the tessarect

    -Hydra used the tessarect. Captain America got involved

    I think it will be broken by Doctor Strange unless you're counting post-credit scenes that are scenes from other movies.
