This coming Tuesday at 8 PM EDT, ABC will be airing ASSEMBLING A UNIVERSE, a television special that will document the story and fame behind the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Instead of airing the (drastically better) Agents of SHIELD show, they’ll be giving us Marvel’s first special on tv. They also will have new scenes from Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, and one of the very first looks at Avengers 2: Age of Ultron!
I think this special is important for those who have not had a chance to really learn about how Marvel crafted their intertwining movies and series, ultimately leading to the third largest film of all time. It wasn’t easy, it wasn’t safe, but they completed it successfully. Each year adds more and more to the plate, while also balancing the existing films, often using them as a jumping point for more movies. We recommend this for any fan of the Marvel movies, even if you’re not their biggest fan.
We have the first preview of the show and can’t wait to give you our reactions next week after it airs.
