5 Reasons Why You Need To Watch “Avengers: Infinity War” Even if You’re Not A Marvel Fan

Are you just a fair-weather fanboy of the Marvel films or someone who (gasp!) has never even bothered to watch any of them? Then read on, because you have to avoid FOMO and watch Infinity War ASAP.

ICYMI, Avengers: Infinity War blasted in Philippine cinemas last week! The latest film from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) follows the Avengers as they unite to stop Thanos from collecting all the infinity stones for a gauntlet that will make him stronger and will allow him to bend reality to his will. 

With 10 years worth of MCU movies leading to Infinity War, every fan will surely be gripping the edges of their seats as soon as the Marvel logo flashes on the screen. But if you're one of the few who managed to be uninfected by the MCU fever, a fair-weather fanboy of the Marvel film or someone who (gasp!) has never even bothered to watch any of them, here are reasons why you need to drop everything you're doing now and catch Avengers: Infinity War in cinemas ASAP!

1. Catch all your favorite stars in one film

Avengers: Infinity War is the film which the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has been building towards to since they released Iron Man in 2008 and a huge part of its success is the many characters introduced to us over the years. From Robert Downey Jr. and Mark Ruffalo to Chris Hemsworth and Scarlett Johansson, it is the biggest star-studded cast joined together in one blockbuster film. If anything, Infinity War brings together a lot of heroes who have never shared the same screen together; so that's another exciting thing to watch out for!

2. The battle scenes will blow your mind

After a 10-year-plot, all the character development and a total of 18 movies, Avengers: Infinity War unite 22 of the superheroes fighting on the same side against one villain, Thanos. With all these heroes gathered for the greatest war in the entire universe, you can only imagine even more epic battle scenes! Ready to see Tony Stark and Thor fight side by side with the Guardians of the Galaxy?

Other than the fight scenes, other things you should look forward to are the suit and weapon upgrades the Avengers have – Iron Man and Hulk's armor, Captain America's shield, Thor's Stormbreaker and Spider Man's suit.

3. It's surprisingly funny, too!

Who knew an action-packed film could make you chuckle a bit? Just like Thor: Ragnarok and Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Infinity War brought us a few laughs here and there in the middle of all the fights brought by the surprising pairings we could have ever only dreamt of! The banter between the Guardians of the Galaxy and the rest of The Avengers will surely make you laugh in your seat.

4. TBH, you don't really need to see all films before this

Trying to catch up on all the MCU films before watching Infinity War? You actually don't need a major recap or spend too much time backtracking all the Marvel films to understand Avengers: Infinity War's plot. With a running time of 2 hours and 38 minutes, you'll be able to follow the storyline with its smooth transition from one character to another. It allowed the heroes meet and interact with each other without messing up the plot! 

5. It's getting amazing reviews and feedback from all over

Just a day after its release and it's already getting great reviews from critics and from those who have seen it already. Here are a few of our favorites:
