PLEASE - NO SPOILERS!

I have been watching Agents of Shield faithfully. I've enjoyed it from the start and enjoyed it more and more as the series went on. I am sure I'm one of the very few people out there who is watching the show and has not seen any of the Marvel films! (Truly - not one.)

I know there is a tie-in between the movie and TV show and I will see the movie. Does anyone know just how lost I'll be without seeing the other films? (If I had time and money I try to have movie marathon and get caught up within the next few days, but that ain't happening.)

Which films do you think I must catch first before seeing Winter Soldier?

Thanks!

Really, to be ready before watching "The Winter Soldier", I should think "Captain America" and "The Avengers" (in that order). It'll be enough to get you caught up on the plot and references.

But in connection with what will probably be happening soon on "Agents of SHIELD", just watching TWS should be enough to connect the plotline for you.

Agreed. I was originally going to say you'd be fine with just Captain America, but Avengers will get you more familiar with most of the main SHIELD characters in TWS.

Bare minimum...

Captain America
Avengers
SHIELD 1.01 - 1.16
Winter Soldier
SHIELD 1.17 - 1.22



While I kind of gave up on SHIELD (I'll get back to it later when I can marathon it), I've been doing my best to keep up with how it ties into and relates to the Marvel films. Doing my best not to spoil too much...

Thinking it over, I decided to spoiler tag this anyway. It should not include anything that the TV series hasn't already introduced you to, but this way if you get mad it's your own fault ;)


Iron Man 1 - Introduces Tony Stark/Iron Man, Stark Industries, Agent Coulson & SHIELD
The Incredible Hulk - Introduces Bruce Banner/Hulk, teases Captain America
Iron Man 2 - Teases Captain America
Thor - Introduces Thor and the Asgardians
Captain America - Introduces Cap and Hydra
The Avengers - Culmination of "Phase One"
Iron Man 3 - Introduces extremis
Agents of SHIELD 1.01 - Ties into The Avengers via Coulson, IM3 via extremis
Agents of SHIELD 1.06 - Very very loosely ties into The Avengers
Thor: The Dark World - Mostly stands alone, but introduces Infinity Gems
Agents of SHIELD 1.08 - Ties into Thor TDW (kinda loosely)
Agents of SHIELD 1.10-11 - Ties into The Avengers
Agents of SHIELD 1.14-15 - Loosely ties into Thor 1 & 2
Agents of SHIELD 1.16 - Leads into The Winter Soldier
The Winter Soldier - BIG BIG STUFF happens!
Agents of SHIELD 1.17-22 - Will be directly affected by the events of The Winter Soldier

Thanks for all the replies folks! I decided that I *had* to see Winter Soldier before catching ep 1x17, so after talking with a few people (none of whom watch Agents of SHIELD), I figured the first Captain America movie and Avengers should be enough backstory for me...and it was just perfect. Within 48 hours I watched Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers, Captain America: Winter Soldier, and then Marvel's Agents of SHIELD ep 1x17 "Turn, Turn, Turn". It's been quite a marathon and I've loved it!

Now I'm on a bit of a Marvel Cinematic Universe kick and plan to watch the other films....except maybe The Hulk. (Sorry - Edward Norton as Bruce Banner just doesn't grab me. I did enjoy Mark Ruffalo though.) I borrowed Iron Man from my local library and I have Iron Man 2 and 3 on hold for me. Woohoo!

(Sorry - Edward Norton as Bruce Banner just doesn't grab me. I did enjoy Mark Ruffalo though.)

See I was the other way around. I thought Ed Norton did a great job as Banner, and was MAD when they said they weren't having him back for The Avengers -- especially given that I generally really don't care for Mark Ruffalo. How pleasant a surprise it was for me when it turned out that Ruffalo did a wonderful job with the role in The Avengers. :)

Enjoy the Iron Man flicks! The second movie kinda sucks, but RDJ's portrayal of Tony Stark is spot-on in all three films, and a joy to watch. 1 is excellent, 2 is meh, and 3 comes back to being pretty darn good.

Turn Turn Turn is definitely better watching it after you have seen Cap 2, i watched Cap 2 today and as soon as i got home i watched Turn Turn Turn, it was awesome

felt i should spoiler this

I was gonna hold of to see Cap 2 on DVD but then i thought i'd have to wait to see more AOS (which is one of the few shows i'm caught up with) so i held off of watching Turn Turn Turn for a couple of days until i saw Cap 2, and when i got home i watched Turn Turn Turn Straight away :D was fun but i confused a few scenes from Cap 2 to Turn Turn Turn lol like i thought the Douchebag senator from Iron Man 2 was arrested in AOS
