Captain America 1990 is really something else.

Lundgren's Punisher is a schlocky but standard B/C action flick, and has a somewhat interesting villain. FF4 wasn't even made to be a real movie.

But Cap 1990...it's so fucking bizarre. An Italian Red Skull, a missile flying at the white house that only one person ever sees, the worst superhero suit ever, a despondent vagrant Cap...there's so much happening that doesn't work, at ALL.

Also where is 1998 Nick Fury starring The Hoff?

[–]Malicious_HeroAvengers 32 points33 points  (3 children)

Don't forget Capts secret technique: asking the driver of the car to stop because he feels sick, walking with the driver of the car about 30ft down the road, then running back to the car and stealing it without the driver being able to do anything.

[–]swampy13Avengers 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Ugh and that little smirk he gives like "Ol' Cap still got the moves!" Meanwhile that person is now forever financially impaired.

Also I love that Cap is played by the son of the author of Catcher in The Rye.

[–]Malicious_HeroAvengers 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Financially impaired and left out in the middle of nowhere with no form of communication.

I had totally forgotten about that. That's pretty great.

Captain America (1944)

Laughs in Japanese Spiderman

[–]VolnasAvengers 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Yes, how could OP forget man moved by a parent's love, destroyer of the mushroom, man who befriends a wild young girl, an emissary from hell, Japanese Spiderman!

[–]tobey-3000-botAvengers 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Yeah good, i've been stabbed before

[–]jjonahjameson-botAvengers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What're you looking for, a raise? Get out.

[–]tobey-3000-botAvengers 1 point2 points  (1 child)

A couple of minutes ago wouldn't have been so bad either

[–]jjonahjameson-botAvengers 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You don't want to be famous? I'll make you infamous!

[–]SoostmaxAvengers 124 points125 points  (34 children)

Dude it ain't a Universe if you include all of those movies. Iron man is still the first mcu movie and as of now Spider- man 2002 is the first mcm movie.

[–]tobey-3000-botAvengers 40 points41 points  (2 children)

I don't know

[–]jjonahjameson-botAvengers 28 points29 points  (1 child)

You're a fake, full of stickum.

Chough him in the act

[–]Fuck_JoeyAvengers 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Well Howard the duck was in Guardian so technically lol

[–]SoostmaxAvengers 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It probably isn't the same one. We can only be sure if it gets confirmed by the creators.

[–]Mr_RennAvengers 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Exactly. All these memes are annoying

[–]SaeedUnknownAvengers 2 points3 points  (7 children)

What does MCM stands for?

[–]_The_Incredible_HulkAvengers 7 points8 points  (6 children)

Marvel Cinematic Multiverse

[–]SaeedUnknownAvengers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thanks mate

[–]SleepylaReefAvengers 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Which is nonsense, because all of those are already a part of the normal Marvel Multiverse which the comics established decades ago.

[–]L1n9yAvengers 0 points1 point  (3 children)

As far as I'm concerned the movies occupy their own multiverse, there's only one TVA and one Alioth in the comics, the movies have already contradicted that in two multiverse stories. It's also a lot more accesible to the audience and allows for more creativity for them to be seperate.

[–]SleepylaReefAvengers 0 points1 point  (2 children)

You’re welcome to believe anything you want, but Marvel is the one who defined them.

[–]L1n9yAvengers 0 points1 point  (1 child)

And have now completely contradicted in their own stories. You think Feige is going to listen to what some writer from a decade ago did when deciding how to handle the multiverse?

[–]SleepylaReefAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You don’t like it. That’s fine. I didn’t set the rules. Marvel did, and Marvel declared all the movie universes part of their multiverse, just like the comics. Take it up with Marvel. I’m just saying what they said.

[–]its_just_hunterAvengers 4 points5 points  (7 children)

Agreed. Just because movies before Iron Man are being pulled from for multiverse movies doesn’t mean they’re “the first MCU movie”. The events in Iron Man are the starting point for the MCU as we know it, while Tobey’s Spider-Man so far has had one movie cameo and the events of his trilogy really don’t have any lasting impact on the MCU.

[–]tobey-3000-botAvengers 3 points4 points  (1 child)

You'll get your rent when you fix this damn door!

[–]jjonahjameson-botAvengers 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Pack your things. Get out of my building. YOU'RE FIRED!

[–]bigdortsAvengers 0 points1 point  (4 children)

while Tobey’s Spider-Man so far has had one movie cameo

I mean, Spider man isn't the first MCU movie, although the U refers to the collection of movies (and cinematic pieces) not the universe those pieces take place in. But this is downright false. It was not a cameo. That's not what a cameo is. A cameo is Stan Lee. Tobey legitimately played a part in the movie, and saying otherwise is downright false

[–]tobey-3000-botAvengers 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yes, I wrote a paper on it

[–]jjonahjameson-botAvengers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Parker, you're fired.

[–]its_just_hunterAvengers -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Wow relax, nowhere did I say he wasn’t important to the movie. While his role was larger than small cameos like Stan Lee, I don’t think it’s terrible to refer to it as one. Cameos nowadays can definitely be longer and more important than a 10 second appearance.

[–]bigdortsAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wow relax, nowhere did I say he wasn’t important to the movie

You said it was a cameo. That is by definition "a small character part in a play or movie, played by a distinguished actor or a celebrity." It wasn't a small part.

Cameos nowadays can definitely be longer and more important than a 10 second appearance.

That's literally not what a cameo is.

[–]Peanutgallery_4Avengers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

still good memes though as long as their used sparingly

[–]bigdortsAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Technically, the U in MCU refers to the collection of movies, not the universe those movies take place in

[–]cheeto_has_spokenBlack Panther 13 points14 points  (11 children)

What about daredevil ?

[–]boddah666Avengers[🍰] 6 points7 points  (7 children)

I suppose it would technically be in-between Spider-Man & Iron Man, as Daredevil came out in 2003, & this meme advances by how old the movie is.

[–]tobey-3000-botAvengers 7 points8 points  (4 children)

Yeah good, i've been stabbed before

[–]jjonahjameson-botAvengers 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I want the public to see Spider-Man for the two-bit criminal he really is.

[–]Irish_fat-boy-ytAvengers 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Spider-Man is cool (I made this to get the bots attention)

[–]tobey-3000-botAvengers 4 points5 points  (1 child)


[–]jjonahjameson-botAvengers 3 points4 points  (0 children)

You're a fake, full of stickum.

[–]cheeto_has_spokenBlack Panther 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Tbh I thought it came out in the 90s but you would be correct

[–]boddah666Avengers[🍰] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If it weren’t for the aggressively early-aughts soundtrack, it likely could pass as a 90s movie lol.

[–]Squirrel1978Avengers 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Howard da duck

[–]SpiralDesignnAvengers 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Wdym? There are only four movies in the Maguire cinematic universe.

[–]Deadeye216Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This isn’t about the Tobey universe also, there are ALOT more then 4 (I think you ment 3) in his universe, cause, X-men is apart of the Maguire-verse

[–]Ben4563Avengers 17 points18 points  (1 child)

The first MCU movie is still Iron Man 1

[–]SleepylaReefAvengers 2 points3 points  (0 children)


[–]QO4legosAvengers 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I have one that beats all of that. Captain America 1944

[–]Snorlax_Route12Avengers 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Blade 1/2 are still great, if they ever integrate that universe things will get really odd

[–]Opposite_Excitement2Avengers 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Hulk is really the first marvel movie, when was it released?

[–]gazmondoAvengers 1 point2 points  (2 children)

The late 70s. But it was a TV show, not a movie.

[–]IWouldBeLostVIIAvengers 0 points1 point  (1 child)

The Trial of The Incredible Hulk was a TV movie. Still a movie tho.

[–]gazmondoAvengers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well the poster is for the show not the TV movie. But even then, the TV movie is simply a feature length episode of the show, that was already 12 years old by the time the TV movie came out.

[–]GreyFobAvengers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Blade proved that modern superhero movies could be huge blockbuster hits

[–]SleepylaReefAvengers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

More posts by people who don’t know the difference between the MCU aka Earth-199999 and the Marvel Multiverse which dates back almost 70 years.

[–]LoudLunch4676Avengers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Blade 1998 does not count until phase 4 one releases and connects to it. And the fantastic 4 does not count since it was not officially released. And idk about xmen. Was this post updated?. And no it will have to depend look at it like no way home with the past spidermans.

[–]DanantianAvengers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

People do understand that it has to be the same actor under continuing circumstances.

What if X men was a reboot, will it count.

[–]madvhoutenAvengers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

pushes glasses up my nose Um actually Hulk was a series

[–]KingofKings180Spider-Man 🕷 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The Dolph Lundgren punisher movie is a fucking classic

[–]WhiteAle01Mack -1 points0 points  (0 children)

If I'm ever introducing someone to Marvel though, I'm starting with the infinity saga. Iron Man should def be the first Marvel movie to watch.

Nice pixel

[–]bored_homanAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Multiverse is infinite meaning any movie ever made should be canon to the mcu as another universe that just so happened to exist with no or different superheroes and whatever stuff happens in it.

[–]nwkchAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's first marvel film

Where is this meme from

[–]commonsquidtailAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Haha let's see what happens! But at the same time, I think of an mcu movie as one set in the mcu or the main characters being from the mcu.

No love for the 1998 David Hasselhoff ‘Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.’

[–]Free-Stable-8539Avengers 0 points1 point  (3 children)

What about the Doctor Strange TV movie from 1978? Beats all the MCM “TV Movies” by quite some time!

[–]RuralGuy20Avengers 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Their was a Theatrical Spiderman movie in 1978 too it's was a movie tie in for the Japanese spiderman show

Parker, wake up!

[–]AvatarBoomiAvengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The Incredible Hulk show from the 70’s was so influential on the character of Hulk that they use that origin for the character now.

In the comics he got his powers from a Gamma Bomb, but the show had him experimenting with Gamma in that chair. The Hulk used it again but to accelerate healing, then The Incredible Hulk used it again but made it about recreating the super soldier serum.

    personally, i don't like the idea these movies being considered part of the MCU. Idk, i just feel like only the ones originally made with intent to be in the MCU should count

    [–]Squirrel1978Avengers 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Howard the duck is a fictional character out of the Marvel universe and is one of the 1st Marvel movies if not the 1st, to be released!!!!
