Disney Marvel Cinematic Universe

I didn't think this quite fit under the Avengers thread, and with a bunch of non-Avengers Disney Marvel films upcoming, I figured I'd start a dedicated thread.

Dr. Strange reviews are coming in, and they are typically Marvel spectacular...

I went to an IMAX 3D 15-minute preview a few weeks back, and the jaw-dropping nature of the visuals simply can't be described in words.  It's like Inception on amphetamine.  It's like the flight sequence at the end of 2001 x 10,000.  I was absolutely engrossed.  And that was in small snippets.

Just got back from a Disney vacation this week.  They were also showing an extended cut of the movie as an attraction (probably the same/similar) and I was also very impressed.  I've never cared much about Dr. Strange, but the comparison to Inception visuals on steroids is very apt.  Per the Marvel norm, they also have some great comic relief bits to break up the action.  I'm way more excited to see this now.
Climbed a mountain & never came back. I will not quit & I always fight back 
From this moment for all my life. What could I say? Was born to be this way. And what could I say?  Just livin' for today

Will I enjoy it?

I'm not much of a comic book guy. I've seen almost none of the Marvel movies. I did however highly enjoy GotG and liked Thanos.

Still gathering my thoughts. It was almost exactly what I expected so I have a weird feeling of wow they did that and ok so no surprise there. Loved it, though. Need to see it again.

Fantastic. I haven't heard a theater so silent at the end of a movie since Batman vs Superman... but this was a GOOD silence. It was an intense movie.

Last remark deleted. No spoliers please.

Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

I would like to kindly ask that No Spoilers be posted. A lot of people like to stay spoiler free as it really does ruin an awesome movie. Thank you.
