The Avengers (2012)

The Avengers is the movie that started it all. It brought together Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and the Hulk for the first time and introduced us to the villainous Loki. The events of this movie set up some of the conflicts that we’ll see in Infinity War.

Age of Ultron sees our heroes face off against an AI gone rogue and sets up some important plot threads for future movies. It also introduces new characters like Vision and Scarlet Witch who will play a role in Infinity War.

Captain America: Civil War (2016)

Civil War pits our heroes against each other as they debate whether or not they should be held accountable for their actions. This movie sets up some major conflicts that carry over into other films, including Infinity War.

Doctor Strange (2016)

While Doctor Strange may not seem like an essential film to watch before seeing Infinity War, it introduces us to an important character in the MCU. Doctor Strange will play a role in the film and his inclusion adds an extra layer of depth to the universe.

Thor: Ragnarok (2017)

Ragnarok is a must-watch before Infinity War. It sets up some major plot points that carry over into the film and introduces us to new characters like Valkyrie and Korg. Plus, it’s just a really fun movie.

Black Panther (2018)

While Black Panther may not be necessary to understand Infinity War, it’s still worth watching. The film introduces us to Wakanda and its people, which will play a role in the events of Infinity War.
