Marvel’s Black Panther is a cultural phenomenon, a historic box office success that’s brought in rave reviews and sparked conversation all over social media and traditional media alike. There are no signs of the excitement abating, either, as the conversation about the film has evolved from discussions about the importance of representation into something grander: a rather groundbreaking celebration of black culture.

Below is the synopsis of "Infinity War," per Rotten Tomatoes

An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios' "Avengers: Infinity War" brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. The Avengers and their Super Hero allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.

"Infinity War" holds a strong 83 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The blockbuster grossed over $2 billion worldwide at the box office, holding the title of the top grossing movie of 2018 so far. The film hit moviegoers right in the feels, and both critics and MCU fans alike called a worthy epic. The Atlantic's Christopher Orr wrote:

Never has the "Marvel Cinematic Universe" seemed like more of a universe, in ways both good and bad. Infinity War-the title is almost too apt-is far from a perfect movie, but it is probably close to the best movie it could have been.
