Far from it

Avengers: Infinity War - Thanos Marvel Studios/Disney

Marvel’s Infinity War brings together the heroes of just about every movie the company has released to date, which is why it’s being billed as “the most ambitious crossover event in history.”

Twitter is not putting up with that obvious marketing fluff and is responding by pointing out even better crossovers from pop culture history, and it is glorious.

I mean.

Who can quibble.

With these counter-arguments?

The world is filled with bigger crossovers.

And cinematic universes often collide.

Mighty heroes often come together to save the world. This is nothing new.

This is only scratching the service of people are creating on Twitter, but I think the point has been made. Marvel is suffering from a bad case of marketing hyperbole, and has already been surpassed in its goal. Social media has spoken.
