Captain America 2

I kind of want to see Captain America 2, now that I've seen the first one.

But in order to understand that movie, I need to see The Avengers, first.

Which means I have to watch the Hulk, Iron Man and Thor movies, first, because I know nothing about those characters.

...This is part of the reason why I don't watch superhero movies often. There are too many pre-requisites.

It's a really good movie, I've seen it in theaters. I can say that it was WAYYY much better than the first one, and that's the only spoiler I'll give.

Michael, I feel your pain; super hero movies are overwhelming. :p

Hey Michael! As a huge fan of comic book movies, you can trust me when I say you don't HAVE to see The Avengers in order to understand what's going on in the new one.

I find it annoying that Captain America, my second favorite superhero's movies are always more of a set up for the Avengers than it's own thing. I personally think his movies were better than the Avengers movie. I honestly don't really love any of the others except maybe Thor.

I haven't seen any of these movies, and this is one of the reasons!

Yes, I agree with John Rizzi, I had only watched the Iron Man movies and one Thor movie when I watched The Avengers.

You probably need to watch Avengers before you watch Captain America 2, but you can certainly watch Avengers without having seen any of the super hero movies that came before. Iron Man is pretty stand-alone. Thor gives you A BIT of background. The Hulk movies have nothing to do with the current run. Avengers is all sorts of fun. You should go for it.

The avengers is a super awesome movie,and that was the first super hero movie I watched . I don't think you need to watch other movies before it but definitely watch it if you are going to watch the avengers 2,age of ultron
