Now, there's no getting away from the fact that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is awesome. Try as you might, it's pretty much impossible to not - on some level - find the action-packed adventures of Iron Man, Captain America and the Guardians of the Galaxy incredibly enjoyable. After all, they're pretty fundamentally fantastic.
Could they, though - along with the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole - actually be made even better?
Well, that's what one super-fan - Mike Furth, of The Comic Archive - seems to have set out to do.
Specifically, he's re-edited the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe into actual, factual chronological order - which means you can now, if so inclined, watch the entire Marvel movie universe in order, over a period of...well, a really long time.
The best part? Even though posting the re-edited scenes online would break all kinds of copyright laws, Furth has still managed to find a way for us all to be able to join in the fun, with a whole lot less painstaking labor than he had to go through - he's posted detailed instructions as to how to do it yourself.
What's more - the videos breaking down exactly what you need also helpfully show (in still form) exactly what order everything goes in, which means that even those of us who don't have every DVD to hand can still enjoy the fantastically geeky experience.
You can check them out below - including:
Including some really intriguing breakdowns of the underlying timeline behind the movies - and, notably, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, highlighting just how much it connects to Marvel's past.
There's also, though...
In which, again, some of the most interesting stuff comes from the reminder that Agents of S.H.I.E.LD. is really integrated into the Cinematic Universe's overall timeline. And that The Falcon is pretty ridiculously awesome.
The overall takeaway for me, though? The Marvel Cinematic Universe is insanely chronologically complicated - and that makes it even more awesome...
What do you guys reckon, though?
