With the arrival of Avengers: Age of Ultron this week, we are officially 11 movies deep in the wildly ambitious and massively popular Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not including TV shows like Daredevil, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Agent Carter, that’s approximately 23 hours of superhero content, or 1,384 minutes to be exact. When you have that much content and so many recurring characters, patterns start to emerge. You begin to see the habits and tropes that define any franchise played out on an unprecedented scale. It encourages some genuine nerdery. Just how many times does Captain America throw his shield? How many times does Thor boast? How many alcoholic beverages does Tony Stark consume?

By the time you read this, I will be on my way to “The Ultimate Marvel Marathon.” It’s 11 films back to back to back; all the official entries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, from 2008’s Iron Man to this week’s Avengers: Age of Ultron. By the time the final credits roll, I will have sat through — and hopefully written about — approximately 27 hours of superhero movies.

Without a great adversary, what good is a superhero? Without someone to punch in the face, Batman would just be some rich schmuck driving around in a weird-looking tank. Without someone on the receiving end of his shield, Captain America would just hang out at the V.F.W. all day. So let’s celebrate the villains. Let’s bring on the bad guys and give them their moment in the sun. With Avengers: Age of Ultron introducing another memorable baddie in the form of James Spader’s titular metallic menace, let’s take some time to run down the 10 greatest superhero movie villains of all time.

Every movie set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe contains at least a couple Easter eggs (along with a cameo from famous Marvel writer Stan Lee). They’re there — if you know where to look and what to look for (it helps to have spent a lifetime reading comic books and books about comic books and watching television shows based on comic books and you get the idea). For those of you still acclimating yourself to the magical world of Marvel — and for those Marvel zombies who just want to make sure they caught everything — we’ve compiled this extensive gallery of the best and geekiest Marvel Easter eggs so far.

Every good superhero has to upgrade his costume from time to time. Superman lost his underwear for Man of Steel. Batman got nipples for Batman & Robin. It’s just part of the superhero job. But Iron Man may be taking his job to extremes. In just five onscreen appearances — Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Avengers, Iron Man 3 and the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron — Tony Stark has created an astounding 45 armors. We’re here to take a look back at all 45 of them (plus the odd War Machine or Iron Patriot).

We know that Tony Stark's Iron Man suit is powerful—when fully charged, it can lift over 100 tons—but, we probably didn't realize just how heavy it is. The original suit in the first ‘Iron Man’ movie weighed over 90 lbs. That's big, hot costume to have to act in all day. And, to think, it was almost not even Robert Downey, Jr. underneath all that armor. Find out which other actors made the cut, and a lot more, in the latest invincible installment of You Think You Know Movies!

Part of the fun of watching a Marvel movie is looking out for all those Easter eggs strewn throughout, and you can be sure 'Guardians of the Galaxy' has a handful, as well. But in case you missed any of them, from the first 'Iron Man' movie all the way up to 'Thor: The Dark World,' MTV compiled a handy video running down all of them, explaining their significance.

With the release of ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier,’ we now have our ninth film of the Marvel Studios continuity since the first ‘Iron Man’ debuted in 2008. It’s a weird thing, these movies have happened so relatively fast, re-watching them now, it’s hard not to have that, Oh, that’s right, Jeff Bridges was actually in ‘Iron Man’ moment. The Marvel movies come so quickly, it almost feels like an analogy to the current state of hyper-accelerated culture itself.
Anyway, here’s a ranking of all of the one-movie-only peripheral Marvel characters played by known actors that we haven’t quite forgotten, but at least deserve to be remembered as part of an Internet list. (Marvel One-Shot short films do not count.)
