The countdown to Avengers: Infinity War is beginning. The highly anticipated film will, at the very least, bring an event 18 films in the making. That doesn’t include the 8 TV shows set in the MCU, either. Because of this, YouTubers New Rockstars decided to put together a compilation of all the events leading up to the film. It’s a great refresher or super informative for those wanting a recap of what’s happened so far.

It started in the ancient times when Malekith, the villain of Thor: The Dark World, was trying to rise. From there we get glimpses at some events that happened in television shows in the 20s and 30s. This stands to be some of the more informative bits as I’ve not watched many of the shows. Bits of Daredevil is the the 90s, with Luke Cage gaining his powers in 2013. But the entire video is in chronological order so it makes it easier to remember the events that were happening at the same time. Like Captain America: Civil War was happening the same month that Steven Strange was in his accident.

One thing to note is that Black Panther is not included in this list. And it’s probably because we don’t know what other events the film will showcase outside what happens in their 2018 adventure. And I definitely think we’ll see past events, given that we need to see Erik Killmonger’s banishment. In addition, Runaways are also not included on this list though they are part of the MCU. I digress. Frankly, it’s a really useful video well researched and saves me some time so I don’t have to watch all the movies and TV series.

Check it out below and let us know what you think. How much more excited are you for the all encompassing team up? Be sure to come back to Geek Girl Authority for more Marvel fun. Avengers: Infinity War comes to theaters May 4th, 2018 and Black Panther will be in theaters February 16th, 2018.
