Marvel Cinematic Universe Movies Ranked
Inspired by @TMcCona. This is honestly one of the hardest things I've ever done...
- •Captain America: Civil WarThe reason it's number 1 could be because it's new and the novelty hasn't worn off yet, but I think it's deeper than that, it explores the inner emotions of each character so much more and I love that Bucky has a more dominant role.
- •Captain America: The First AvengerHe's the first avenger and I love him. I love this movie because it's technically period, and Cap's old fashioned sentiments are what make him so special. I never get sick of his story.
- •Iron ManRobert Downey Jr. is the perfect Tony Stark and I fall in love with his smart arse nature over and over again. I love the survival story and it was the first Marvel movie I saw. (Not including all the Spider-Man's)
- •The AvengersI just watched this again tonight! So good having all the Heroes together for the one film. The exchanges between Cap and Tony are particularly funny, but Loki's stand out performance as the hopeless villain (I mean seriously, he's terrible, you'd think he'd learn) really gets me. Tony's description of him being a diva is perfect.
- •Captain America: The Winter SoldierAgain, I love it when Cap is the protagonist. Amazing that Natasha has a more prominent role in this, she's such a kickass character. Having Bucky back as The Winter Soldier was a real highlight also. Learning that Hydra had infiltrated SHEILD from basically the moment it was formed was such an exciting story line. It just makes me wish I'd kept up with Agents of SHEILD.
- •Avengers: Age of UltronWhat I loved about Age of Ultron was the fact that there were hardly any arguments between the Avengers, (considering how many there were in The Avengers and Civil War), the characters were a lot more supportive of one another and it was great to see them working together despite Ultron being Tony's creation. I love the scene when they're all having a go at picking up Thor's hammer and Cap moves it slightly, great moment 👌🏼
- •Iron Man 3I LOVED Iron Man 3. (Is anyone else wondering why there weren't any sub-titles for the Iron Man films? They're just 1, 2 and 3...) The story was great, seeing Tony deal with PTSD was intense but the comic relief of "Trevor" was a good balance!
- •Iron Man 2Natasha Romanoff's introduction would place this higher on my list, but I just didn't find the story as gripping as the others. Rhodey isn't my favourite character either and he has quite a large part in this film.
- •Ant-ManOh my gosh. Totally different to the other Marvel films so far but boy did I cry from laughter! I wasn't sure how I would like Ant-Man but it was brilliant! Paul Rudd does an excellent job and Michael Peña and that stupid smile of his 😂 I couldn't get enough. Yellowjacket was actually pretty scary, I wouldn't want to come across him.
- •ThorI do love the Thor films but I struggle to class them in with the other Avenger films. Because he is not of this world and the other characters have such real qualities about them I find Thor a little hard to swallow as part of the Avengers crew. However, that being said, looking at Thor from a separate point of view it is such a wonderfully shot film, Kenneth Branagh did an amazing job and the story is excellent.
- •Thor: The Dark WorldThe same goes for Thor's sequel. Good storylines, interesting with the portals but they just don't seem to fit with the other Marvel films. The one other thing that places Thor and Thor: The Dark World lower is Natalie Portman's casting, she feels out of place, I don't know why, it's just a vibe haha 💁🏽
- •The HulkI enjoyed The Hulk, but it does seem separate to the other Marvel films. I much prefer Mark Ruffalo's "adult man" Hulk to Edward Norton's seemingly "teenage" Hulk.
- •Guardians of the GalaxyThe only reason this is so low is because I've only seen it the one time and it was New Years Eve night with my best friend and I don't think there was a whole lot of concentrating going on! I'll have to watch it again.
- •Yeah, that was traumatic.
