Everyone is talking about Avengers: Endgame, (me included) and after seeing it twice I started to think “what’s the best movie in the MCU?” With that thought, you get the birth of my newest segment Ranked where I simply list out the best movies in the best franchises. It’s nothing groundbreaking, just another opinion piece that means absolutely nothing on the internet.
With that thought, yes, my list is the definite one.
First up on Ranked you get the Marvel Cinematic Universe listed in descending order. The way I went about doing this was starting with #1 and working my way up. Realistically, there isn’t a horrible movie in the MCU, it’s been a blessing to us all over the last eleven years… let’s just call it the ‘least-best’ movie.
Movies: 22 (#23 coming in July, this list will be updated)
After reading through a few other sources’ Top MCU Lists you can see what people attach themselves to character wise. While there will be some similarities in the Top 10, you will see the Iron Man, Thor & Captain America movies drastically change depending on the person — I believe that correlates with the character you identify with the most (or favorite character) — at least in my opinion that is. Does that work with you as well?
What’s the best movie out of the legendary 22-movie franchise? Find out below. Do you agree? Let me know in the comments. I guess we can say this list is subject to change, because we aren’t done with the MCU just yet.
22. The Incredible Hulk
Scientist Bruce Banner desperately seeks a cure for the gamma radiation that contaminated his cells and turned him into The Hulk. Cut off from his true love Betty Ross and forced to hide from his nemesis, Gen. Thunderbolt Ross, Banner soon comes face-to-face with a new threat: a supremely powerful enemy known as The Abomination.
21. Ant-Man & The Wasp
Scott Lang is grappling with the consequences of his choices as both a superhero and a father. Approached by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym, Lang must once again don the Ant-Man suit and fight alongside the Wasp. The urgent mission soon leads to secret revelations from the past as the dynamic duo finds itself in an epic battle against a powerful new enemy.
20. Iron Man 2
With the world now aware that he is Iron Man, billionaire inventor Tony Stark faces pressure from all sides to share his technology with the military. He is reluctant to divulge the secrets of his armored suit, fearing the information will fall into the wrong hands. With Pepper Potts and “Rhodey” Rhodes by his side, Tony must forge new alliances and confront a powerful new enemy.
19. Thor: The Dark World
In ancient times, the gods of Asgard fought and won a war against an evil race known as the Dark Elves. The survivors were neutralized, and their ultimate weapon — the Aether — was buried in a secret location. Hundreds of years later, Jane Foster finds the Aether and becomes its host, forcing Thor to bring her to Asgard before Dark Elf Malekith captures her and uses the weapon to destroy the Nine Realms — including Earth.
18. Iron Man 3
Plagued with worry and insomnia since saving New York from destruction, Tony Stark , now, is more dependent on the suits that give him his Iron Man persona — so much so that every aspect of his life is affected, including his relationship with Pepper. After a malevolent enemy known as the Mandarin reduces his personal world to rubble, Tony must rely solely on instinct and ingenuity to avenge his losses and protect the people he loves.
17. Captain Marvel
Captain Marvel is an extraterrestrial Kree warrior who finds herself caught in the middle of an intergalactic battle between her people and the Skrulls. Living on Earth in 1995, she keeps having recurring memories of another life as U.S. Air Force pilot Carol Danvers. With help from Nick Fury, Captain Marvel tries to uncover the secrets of her past while harnessing her special superpowers to end the war with the evil Skrulls.
Forced out of his own company by former protégé Darren Cross, Dr. Hank Pym recruits the talents of Scott Lang, a master thief just released from prison. Lang becomes Ant-Man, trained by Pym and armed with a suit that allows him to shrink in size, possess superhuman strength and control an army of ants. The miniature hero must use his new skills to prevent Cross, also known as Yellowjacket, from perfecting the same technology and using it as a weapon for evil.
