We love Marvel movies! In terms of current overproduction, there is no way to get fat. However, it is always good to increase our “cinematic vocabulary”, expanding our minds beyond just one genre, enriching us even more as human beings. Perhaps there is no better genre for such an endeavor than theater, where the generally human issues that we may encounter in our daily lives are debated.
Thinking about it, we decided to combine the useful with the enjoyable and indicate the productions with the stars that you and we love so much belonging to the so-called Marvel Cinematic Universe.
