Everything You Learn Rewatching Every MCU Movie (So Far)
Now that Kevin Feige's baby has evolved into a mildly terrifying 18-limbed behemoth with a mind of its own and the creative will to be whatever the hell it wants to be, rewatching every MCU movie in a short period of time is a fairly daunting task.

For Infinity War - a story ten years in the making - that has been particularly important, as almost every single release of the past decade have in some way led to it. That might not be specifically in terms of appearances by Infinity Stones, of course, because this film is as much about characters as it is about magical space artifacts and each character has a defined arc over the course of their film appearances that will come into play in the big show.
