My Marvel Cinematic Universe progress

The helpful folks at CNET have come up with a complete guide to Marvel's cinematic universe (which should help Jay Bauman out a ton).

The reason, of course, is that Captain America: Civil War is coming out "soon" -- May 6, 2016 to be precise, which isn't really remotely soon unless you're a computer animator stuck trying to actually make the movie (which wrapped up filming on August 22nd).

The insane gap between the film's photography and release date is probably worthy of a mini-rant. CGI of course is a big part of the problem. Major motion pictures can have lengthy post-production times (Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves wrapped up principal photography on December 22, 1990, almost six months before its June 14, 1991 release date) regardless of modern technology, but Civil War is going to take 258 days between photography and release (versus 174 for Prince of Thieves or 166 for The Matrix)! 258 days of post-production is a little ridiculous.

Anyways, back to the Spotter's Guide to the Marvel Film Universe, I'm a little behind. I've got no interest in watching Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. either, but here's how I rank in the CNET "how far into the Marvel Film Universe are you?" quiz.
