“Captain America: Civil War” might very well be Texas’ favorite movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, according to the analysts at cable. tv.

o the We found your state’s favorite Marvel movie by running every movie title from the Marvel Cinematic Universe through Google Trends to identify which were the most searched in the US over the past five years. The results were not what we expected!

Utahns Are Completely Obsessed with Marvel Movies

Five states had two movies tie for first place:

Illinoisans are fans of The Incredible Hulk and Captain America: Civil War.

Bay Staters go full Tony Stark with Iron Man 2 and Iron Man 3.

Michiganders like Iron Man 2 and The Incredible Hulk.

Oregonians prefer Iron Man 2 and Thor: The Dark World.

Pennsylvanians love big-cast movies The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron.

But when it comes to having a divided heart, Utah can’t be beat. This is way more than a tie we’re talking about here—Utah had a fourteen-way tie among the eighteen movies.

Which ones didn’t meet Utah’s “high” standards? Those would be The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 3, Thor: Ragnarok, and Black Panther. But we’re betting if we give Utah a few more months to comb Google for new Marvel content, Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther will be just as big in the Beehive State as practically every other Marvel movie is.

Vermont and Nevada Want Some Super-Soldier Serum

Vermont’s top search was Captain America: The First Avenger, which makes sense because the Green Mountain State is about as scrawny as pre-serum Steve Rogers. Did you know Vermont’s tallest building is eleven stories tall? That’s the shortest tallest building in the US.

And with Nevada favoring Captain America: The Winter Soldier, we can only assume they’re wishing the fallout from the 928 nuclear tests at the Nevada Test Site could work like Vita-Rays. That way they could turn into super soldiers instead of, you know, getting radiation poisoning and cancer.

Montana Dreams of Fighting Frost Giants

Remember how Thor was all about the war between the Asgardians and the Frost Giants? No? Well, Montana does! It searched most for Thor, reflecting its own need to get rid of some big cold. In addition to having one of the worst winters in the country this year, Montana holds the record for the lowest temperature in the contiguous United States: -70 degrees Fahrenheit.

Alaska Wishes It Were a Little Smaller

Despite what Texas would like you to believe, it’s not the largest state—that honor goes to Alaska. But Alaska’s favorite MCU movie was Ant-Man, with a main character who can shrink to a subatomic size. Guess it’s not easy being twice as big as the Lone Star State. Dream little, Alaska.

So which MCU movie is searched for the most?

The first six movies of the MCU, called Phase One—Avengers Assembled, collectively beat out the other two phases by a landslide. We bet you can’t guess the top two movies.

Hey, Joe! 

Who else is excited for the release of Avengers: Infinity War tomorrow?

The analysts at CableTV.com sure are — and recently wrapped up a national report revealing each state's most searched-for Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movie. According to the data, Texas keeps it all-American with the state's top choice being Captain America (we're not surprised). Perhaps it's because the Lone Star State easily identifies with the living, breathing symbol of freedom and liberty.

Check out the full report here: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.cabletv.com_blog_favorite-2Dmarvel-2Dmovies-2Dby-2Dstate_&d=DwMFaQ&c=QvQrCjPtO9cKGOfGYlNgXQ&r=NOEwwB_RR4ko4NJa6bPgrJ-lQd5QtgBvNK9d_xHB6H8&m=BAxVX6Y7oe1bwE-euI_zfwEBO5pYRVjBA5BGt7r-mfs&s=DmIVow5zERykccNP9Wj5He4svC6axI35wBiCpC4LqBE&e=
