We won’t break down every movie discussed by the fans — it’s a Reddit rabbit hole, after all. However, there are several other contenders for “most likely to skip” that are worth mentioning.
“Iron Man 2” and “Ant-Man and the Wasp” both made the list. These are low-hanging fruit too. After all, they’re the second installment in solo franchises with little to no universe-level stakes throughout. On top of that, Stark’s second film is very early in the franchise, and Scott Lang’s (Paul Rudd) solo sequel comes between “Infinity War” and “Endgame” — read: It’s Snap filler.
Other dark horse candidates that snuck in and out of the conversation included “Captain Marvel,” “Doctor Strange,” “Thor,” and “Black Panther.” An interesting connection there? They’re all origin stories. Apparently, when binging the MCU, most fans want to stick to the larger storylines with a multitude of characters.
While every fan clearly has their own personal lists, there is a certain level of disloyalty that comes with skipping any of these movies. After all, for most Marvelites, even the least of the MCU films is much easier to sit through than an infinite number of others. It’s a sentiment that was also reflected by fans — so much so, in fact, that the second-highest up-voted comment on the Reddit thread in question simply read, “I can’t skip one single movie. It would feel like a betrayal.” ‘Nuff said.
