So, over half term I'm organising an Avengers marathon instead of a birthday party and this has, of course, led to discussion about what order we should watch the films in. We'll be splitting over two days and trying to eat appropriate foods and drinks throughout. I thought it would be fun to do a poll, although in practice, we'll probably pick due to catering reasons :)

The options are...
1) The chronological cut (reviewed here). This is all the films intercut into roughly chronological order.
Pros: Actually in order. Hugely geeky. Reveals interesting connections between films
Cons: Destroys narrative consistency. Insane.

2) Release order (Iron Man, Hulk, Iron Man 2/Thor, Captain America, Avengers)
Pros: As this is the cinema intended order, probably most narratively consistent. V Stark heavy day 1.
Cons: V. Stark light day 2. Unimaginative.

3) Release order modified (Iron Man, Hulk, Thor/Iron Man 2, Captain America, Avengers)
Pros: Mostly narratively consistent. Spreads good movies out.
Cons: Slightly random.

4) Roughly in-universe chronological (Captain America, Iron Man 1, Iron Man 2/Hulk, Thor, Captain America)
Pros: Interesting to see how films lead into each other in this way? Stark heavy day 1.
Cons: Several movies heavily overlap so difficult to decide. Stark light day 2.

5) Alternative in-universe chronological (Captain America, Iron Man 1, Hulk/Iron Man 2, Thor, Avengers)
Pros: Spreads good movies out.
Cons: Slightly random.


I will be severely disappointed if (a) anything other than the chronological cut is chosen and (b) there is not live-blogging.
I have been boosting for the chronological cut, but I concede that it is insane and likely to confuse those who have never seen the films before, and since I haven't ever seen Norton-Hulk that includes me.

I favour a balancing of the Stark to spare my liver.
1) You know which order I favour.
2) Insane is not necessarily a bad thing when it comes to Avengers movies.
Chronological sounds crazy but entertaining and has my vote.
