I'm just going to put it out there... I am scared to see The Avengers: Infinity War, Part 1. There. I said it.
The reason is pretty simple. I much prefer the standalone Marvel Cinematic Universe movies.
I love the Iron-Man movies. I worship the Captain America films (although that third one may as well be an Avengers film, and I tend to think of it that way). Ant-Man was great. Spider-Man: Homecoming was a lot of fun. The first Thor was good, never saw the second, and loved Ragnarok. Black Panther was magnificent.
The first Avengers film? Good. I enjoyed it a lot the first time I saw it. But, to be honest, I haven't enjoyed it as much in subsequent viewings. Age of Ultron, though? I fell asleep during it and still haven’t finished it.
There’s just too much going on when there are so many “main” characters in one story. Based on what I heard, there are 64 Marvel Comics characters in Infinity War.

How can you keep up and still give enough screen time to each to make it worthwhile?
I don’t see how you can.
But I’m sure I’ll see it eventually. Maybe on home video. Library rental or whatnot.
In the meantime, here are a few movies I really want to see! When they come out.
Oh I’m dying for these.
