MCU burnout

Written on May 11, 2022

This past weekend, I watched Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

I enjoyed it a lot.

It was visually stunning, had interesting plot twists and saw some really cool character developments.

I’d say, compared to all the movies that’s come out since phase four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) began, it’s number two on the list.

With the list currently being:

  1. Spider-Man: No Way Home
  2. Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
  3. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings
  4. Black Widow
  5. Eternals

While I’ve been pretty good about keeping up with all of Marvel’s phase four releases. I have to admit, after leaving the theater from watching, Dr. Strange, I felt a sort of fatigue.

I find the MCU movies to be quite entertaining. But with so many lined up and so many being released in quick succession, I’m burnt out by them.

As entertaining as the whole series is. I think I’ll take a little break.

I think it was phase two, where I kind of didn’t care to watch all the movies that were released right away.

Then phase three came out and I went back and watched the origin stories of some of the characters in the cross-over movies but in more casual fashion — like while washing dishes.

I think for a little while I’ll do that with phase four.

Instead of trying to keep up with the newest movie, I’ll just chill and come back to it when I have the appetite for it.
