I'd go with Star Wars. I enjoy the Avengers movies, but Star Wars is a part of me.

Star Wars was a part of me until the prequels ripped that part back out of me and stomped it on the ground. Don't get me wrong, I really like and have enjoyed the last two Star Wars movies (and Rogue One and even Solo), but I already know the fate of most of the characters that I really love - Han, Luke, and Vader - and while I'm curious to see what happens with Leia, Chewie, Rey, Finn, Poe, and some others, I'm not nearly as invested in most of them as I am with the characters in the Marvel movies.

I cannot wait for Avengers: End Game.

Since I haven't seen Avengers 2 or Infinity Wars, Star Wars 9 is an easy choice.

I think the Avengers movies would be better but like you, Star Wars was part of my childhood so have to root for it.

I'll take Star Wars. I don't think anything will come close to capturing the feeling of seeing a Star Wars film in theaters for me.

I just got around to watching Infinity War last month and although it was really good I still prefer other movies in the MCU to the Avengers. I enjoyed Homecoming, Ragnarok, and GotG more than I've enjoyed the Avengers movies.

SW, easily.

The only superhero movie(s) I've bothered to watch were the Iron Man ones (and hell, I may be one behind? on even those).

SW8 is why I guessed that Avengers would "win" the poll. Avengers is hitting on all cylinders at the box office, while Star Wars has run into some adversity (SW8, Solo).

If a character in Avengers dies, it doesn't really bother me, except maybe for Ironman. Luke dying in Episode 8 still doesn't sit right with me over a year later.

i was "meh" on SW8, but at least I saw it. I've only seen a few of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. I've been waiting until I'm in the mood to binge on all of them in order.

I'm kinda sick of both of them to be honest. I'll probably watch both when they are released outside of their theater runs though, but I'm not overly enthusiastic about either.

I got the Avengers: Infinity War on blu ray at a Black Friday sale and I still haven't watched even that.

So Star Wars unless Disney becomes even greater douches.

If I had to choose to miss one, I think I'd rather watch SW9 than Endgame, purely because I've got a reasonable idea of how Endgame shakes out, but SW9, I think, has much more potential to surprise me.

SW8 was terrific and only made me more excited for SW9.

SW9, but I'm not excited about either. I'll go see that in the theatre with low expectations: Avengers movies recently I don't even see in the theatre, I couldn't even make it through the last one as a Netflix watch. The first one was great, but they are a bad parody of themselves at this point. Both franchises, but I have a nostalgic connection from my youth to SW that will get me to watch that just to see what they do with it.

SW all day. I do not enjoy superhero movies. Never have. Don’t get the hype for them. Except guardians of the galaxy. Those are awesome.

I was surprised how much I liked Infinity War when I finally got to see it, but, I'm not invested in that world like I am Star Wars. And I've loved all the Disney Star Wars movies, so, Episode 9 will is my most anticipated movie since Episode 8. I'll take Friday morning off work and see it in the first Friday morning showing, which has become my Star Wars tradition. A new Star Wars movie on the big screen one of the only things in entertainment I'll take in almost as soon as I possibly can.

It wasn't critically panned, though it was a financial disaster for Disney, who has now has completely stalled the future Star Wars movie release production schedule aside from Episode 9.

Yep. For reference, it got 70% from Rotten Tomatoes, which, while isn't the upper echelons, is decent. However...

I do think that people just got Star Wars fatigue far quicker than Disney thought they would. Probably should have held off on the separate films until after the sequel trilogy.

From my own experience. I saw Rogue One in the theater, along with Episode 7 and Episode 8. I did not see Solo in the theater. I don't know how much that was because I wasn't all that interested in a Solo backstory film and how much of it was because I really thought Episode 8 was meh (and Solo came very soon afterwards).

Solo was only 4 months or so after Last Jedi. If they'd held it until December, it probably would have done better.

Firing the directors and re-shooting most of the movie must have killed the budget too. (Or, hiring the wrong directors in the first place, if you look at it that way instead).

Rogue One had a $200 million production budget, I'm guessing a good chunk of that $75 million more for Solo was a result of fucking up the director situation.

Rogue One also made $1 billion+ worldwide. So $75mil more for new directors, etc. probably wouldn't have mattered in the slightest if it could have done even close to what Rogue One was able to do.

Solo didn't do well because Last Jedi was a steaming pile of shit. No one has faith that Disney can do Star Wars well. I finally saw Solo on Netflix and it is a million times better than Last Jedi.

Ya, Solo we're just talking it would have gotten closer to breaking even and not been QUITE the disaster it was.

Although I will probably enjoy Endgame more, if I have to choose only one it would be Star Wars 9, just because IT'S THE LAST ONE.

I thought the Enfyss Nest stuff in Solo was kinda dumb. Like it loses nothing if it's not in there and you just replace them with generic imperials. Really pissed we won't get a sequel but whatevs

If this had been asked 3 or 4 years ago, Iíd say Avengers. Now, I would say neither. I am suffering from super hero overload. Also, I loved Star Wars growing up, but as I got older, I started realizing how thin the movies were with regard to plot, dialogue, and acting. Even the story itself is simply the basic hero myth set in space, i.e. boy leaves home because of x tragedy, boy finds sword, boy becomes a man and defeats evil. That isnít a bad thing, but it most certainly isnít The Oddesy or something. Iíve heard that the books that are now canon are much more rich and complex, so someday I might try those.
