19 MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE MOVIES RANKED FROM WORST TO BEST

Since I’m a huge Marvel fan, I always get asked what my favorite superheroes movies is, and which ones are the classics to watch. I thought doing post rating all of them would be a perfect way to show to best of the best even to non-Marvel fans. Not going to lie, it was harsh rating all of them as they’re all so unique and different! But after rewatching a few of them recently, here’s are all the Marvel movies rated from best to worst. If you aren’t a huge fan or would like to get to know the franchise a bit better, I would recommend at least watching the first five-ten ones!

19.The Incredible Hulk (2008)

We are going from worst to best, so we have to start somewhere. “The Incredible Hulk” lacked humor, it also fails to make a relationship between Bruce Banner (Edward Norton) and Betty Ross (Liv Tyler) worth caring about. It may not be the best movie in the MCU, but it sure does capture the spirit of its giant green protagonist.

18.Thor: The Dark World (2013)

First, “Thor: The Dark World” continued a romance that no one believes in. It’s too superheroy and is my least favorite Thor movies by far. There are a few good, inventive action scenes in “The Dark World” but Thor’s character gets lost along the way. In this one, Thor is the least interesting character. Loki (played by Tom Hiddleston) is easily the most amusing character and is a screen-stealer.

17.Iron Man 2 (2010)

We still get a charismatic and interesting Tony Stark (played by Robert Downey Jr), but sadly it’s my least favorite Iron Man. This movie is good, but the villains aren’t as good as in the other ones, they fail to give us a real high-stakes threat. I’m glad Marvel learned from their mistakes and kept getting better after that.

16.Doctor Strange (2016)

The visuals in this movie were on point, and every scene pretty much takes your breath away. This movie is about a surgeon (Dr. Steven Strange) who gets into a car crash that robs the use of his hands. As traditional medicine fails to heal him, he goes on a quest that brings him to Kamar-Taj in Nepal. Where he studies with the Ancient One, who teaches him the ways of magic and alternative realities. But something was missing for me. Don’t get me wrong, Doctor Strange was a good movie, but nothing compared to the other of the MCU.

15.Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)

It kind of breaks my heart to have this one so far down the list… I loved this movie. You get the origin story of Steve Rogers for the first hour of the film which I liked. The production design was also great, and they made everything look like the 1940’s!

14.Thor (2011)

Hemsworth and Hiddleston make the perfect on-screen brothers in the first movie of the franchise. My favorite scene is (*spoiler alert* if you haven’t seen it), Thor smashes the Bifröst to bits to save a planet full of frost giants. He’s doing a very noble thing, but he’s also destroying the only way for him to return to the love of his life. The love story with Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) and some of the sitcom-like humor (which doesn’t hold up well after repeat viewings) and it keeps it from being truly great.

13.Ant-Man (2015)

It’s a very refreshing movie with a different pace and for once is not about saving the world. The cast is solid, and I really like Paul Rudd as Ant-Man. All the effects are also incredible, from the shrinking effects to all the scenes where here’s small. This one is a must-watch.

12.Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)

“Avengers: Age of Ultron” asks some interesting questions of its heroes. Why are they doing this? And for how long can they continue doing this? We also go deeper into each character. “Age of Ultron” is nothing like “The Avengers” and it isn’t trying to be. Most Avenger is confronted with absorbing character challenges, that was all very well handled.

11.Iron Man 3 (2013)

I hate putting this in 11th on the list… Iron Man 3 is sharp, has a funny script and strong character work. We get to see a lot more of Tony Stark without the suit, and we get to know him a lot more. Packed with fantastic action scenes, this one is a must-watch.

10.Captain America: Winter Soldier (2014)

This movie is a must-watch even if you don’t usually like Captain America movies (before “Civil War”, of course). One of my favorite moments in this movie was by far the highway fight scene! A fight between Steve and the Winter Soldier, one of the best action scenes in any movie ever.

9.Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (2017)

Although I like this second movie, I have to put it under the first, original one. The soundtrack keeps being amazing and we get a ton of adorable and angry scenes with baby Groot! The humor felt more forced than the first movie, but it’s still an emotional rollercoaster and is fun to watch.

8.The Avengers (2012)

Marvel had already turned comics characters into a successful movie franchise. Each actor indeed brought their character to life. Director Joss Whedon successfully assembled heroes and villains in this 140-minute iconic movie. Everyone had been waiting for this first all-hero extravaganza, and we weren’t disappointed!

7.Captain America: Civil War (2016)

There were no huge monsters or aliens of any kind for the heroes to battle against, but instead, we got a conflict between two superheroes who are very angry with each other. On top of that, we got to see all the Avengers take sides and have a big fight scene in an airport! We also got to meet the new Spider-Man (played by the incredible Tom Holland) and Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) for the first time.

6.Guardians of the Galaxy  (2014)

My favorite guardians of the galaxy! Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot! I fell in love, with these characters from the moment I saw this movie. This blockbuster is a breath of fresh air for the MCU.

5.Thor: Ragnarok (2017)

On to my favorite Thor movie! Taika Waititi thoroughly directed this masterpiece. It was perfectly executed and with a lot more humor than the previous ones!  As usual, the cast is great, and Cate Blanchett was perfectly casted as Hela. We get to see Thor and Loki’s relationships more than ever.

4.Spider-Man Homecoming (2017)

What is there not to love about your friendly neighborhood Spider-man?! Out of the other spider-man movies (that I will not include in this list), this one is BY FAR my favorite. This movie is funny, full of action and awkward high school scenes. Tom Holland brings back the original Spider-Man that we saw in comic books. Michael Keaton is perfect as the Vulture, and the fact that Iron Man is so present in the movie makes the experience even more enjoyable!

3. Iron Man (2008)

Iron Man. The Godfather of Marvel. I had to include it in my top 3. This movie is the reason I became a fan of Marvel! I fell in love with the MCU from the moment the film started. If you haven’t seen it yet, please do yourself a favor!

2. Black Panther (2018)

I was one of the last person to go watch this blockbuster! I only saw it a few weeks ago and oh my… I was NOT disappointed! From the incredible soundtrack to action scenes correctly prosecuted, Black Panther is by far one of the best ones out there. I wouldn’t change a single person from the cast, they all fit their character perfectly. The Black Panther costumes are absolutely incredible and all very colorful, you honestly see all the work and research that has been done around it. I also loved seeing all the technology and futuristic things in this movie! I also enjoyed seeing the brother-sister bond that we don’t usually see in the MCU. As soon as I saw it, I knew it would become one of my favorite movies Marvel movies! Truly a classic. Wakanda Forever!

1. Avengers: Infinity War (2018)

I had to put Avengers: Infinity War in the first place because if there was an apocalypse and I could only save one Marvel movie, it would be this one! It includes most characters of the MCU, and the storyline is just fantastic! The film raised the stakes of the MCU in ways none of the other films have. Not only is it the longest Marvel movie so far, it’s also the biggest superhero movie of all time. It delivers on a 10-year promise of being the biggest superhero movie of all time. Go watch it if you haven’t already. Seriously.

And there you have my ranking of the entire MCU. As I said it wasn’t easy ranking all of them, I love Ant-Man, and it breaks my heart to have it so low on the list, but these movies are all so exceptional and unique in their own way. Marvel has done an incredible at doing something that was never really done before. I hope you guys enjoyed this post, let me know down in the comments what’s your favorite movie from the list and if you agree with me.

Love- as always,
