(series review) [STREAMING] - Marvel Studios: Legends - "Zemo"

These short reels are 6-7 minutes of excellent footage and storytelling.

Please note: this review may have mild spoilers as this docuseries acts as a "catch-up", reminder and/or telling of a characters' inception in the Marvel Cinematic Universe up until now in phase 4 collated in 6-7 minutes.

In case you haven't seen a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie before, any or a couple, this is 7 glorious minutes cleverly cut from multiple films that act as a highlight reel of a character's journey or backstory through the MCU into Phase 4.  Extremely important if you want to learn about a character before heading into DisneyPlus's The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, starring The Falcon and The Winter Soldier with supporting cast.

Helmut Zemo was a family man who lived in and was the colonel of an elite Sokovian Commando Unit in Sokovia.  When Ultron tried to take over the world, The Avengers along with their two new twin recruits Wanda Maximoff and Pietro Maximoff, fought Ultron and his Ultron Bots and the Avengers "Successfully" destroy the floating city of Sokovia before an Extinction Level Event is carried out.  However, upon destroying the city, Zemo's family died as a result of collateral damage and Zemo seeks to put an end to all heroes.  Zemo enacts a plan of obtaining The Winter Soldier to cause an international incident that would pit The Avengers against each other causing a Civil War, but when the dust settles, The Black Panther finds Zemo who makes an attempt to end his own life.  Zemo is placed into solitary confinement. 

These 7 minutes are a collection of clips, but if you were to get the backstory so far surrounding this character and all the events that lead up to The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, you must watch Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America: Civil War.

This is an excellent recap for both fans and newbies alike.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier picks up after these events.
