Marvel Cinematic Universe Retrospective

This is the sane person's version of a Marvel Cinematic Universe marathon. The goal is to re-watch each of the MCU films by the end of the year so that I'll still be within the 10th anniversary calendar year (ie. 2018). Not because I like torturing myself, but for the purposes of being complete, I'll also be re-watching The Incredible Hulk. Wish me luck.
