Top Ten Marvel Cinematic Universe Movies

The Top Ten

1 The Avengers

A juggernaut of a movie! Non-stop entertainment. - BKAllmighty

This is the one that brought everything together. The personalities clash, and ground breaks like it never has in a film before.

I just love how they all clash because their just heroes without the Avengers and having them all meet up together it's fun

Amazing movie but not as good as Civil War for me - SimeOh

2 Captain America: Civil War Captain America: Civil War

This is the movie that decided it for me. The Captain America trilogy is the best superhero trilogy ever. And yes, I think it's better than the Dark Knight trilogy. Shoot me.

It's like, the Captain America movies just keep getting better! The First Avenger was great. Winter Soldier was awesome. And Civil War is really really awesome! My new favorite Marvel movie.

In my opinion this is the one marvel movie franchise that has gotten better with each film. Iron Man 2 wasn't as good as the first one, the Hulk never went anywhere, and with the Thor and Avengers movies, it's kinda based on your opinion. But with this franchise, I'm gonna give the first one 4 stars, the winter soldier 5 stars, and Civil War... 6 STARS.

This should be number 1 - SimeOh

3 Guardians of the Galaxy

Brilliant movie lacked a good plot or villain (cough ronan cough) but altogether a great movie with a great script and cast, hope the second one is a good as the first one. to james gunn I say: Great work keep it up!

This is the best because it's the most funny and entertaining, it might not have a great story like The Winter Soldier or a huge scope like The Avengers, but it's still my favorite.

This is the best mcu movie in my opinion. I think it has everything you want in a marvel movie.
My FREAKY opinion:
20) Thor
19) the incredible Hulk
18) Iron Man 2
17) Thor:the dark world
16) Guardians of the Galaxy vol.2
15) Ant-Man and the Wasp
14) Captain America:the first Avenger
13) Avengers:Age of Ultron
12) Spider-Man:homecoming
11) Iron Man
10) Captain America:the winter soldier
09) Black Panther
08) Ant-Man
07) The Avengers
06)Captain America:Civil War
05) Thor Rangnarok
04) Doctor Strange
03) Iron Man 3
02) Avengers:Infinity War
01) Guardians of the Galaxy

This is the best MCU movie in my opinion. It should be number 1 - codgtamk34

4 Captain America: The Winter Soldier

How anyone could rank Captain America Civil War over The Winter Soldier is a mystery to me. I do love the team aspect of Civil War and the movie does have some awesome scenes and is very entertaining but the more you watch it, the more you notice the many flaws. It doesn't even get close to the perfection that the Russos delivered with The Winter Soldier. This movie gave us some of the best action scenes ever with an amazing cast and a story that keeps you on the edge of your seat all the entire time. The best of it all? It gets even better the more often you watch it. It's the best paced movie out of the MCU and the scenes bleed into each other amazingly well. Nothing feels rushed or dragging here. The fight choreography is simply gorgeous from Cap sending some guys flying or throwing knives at their hands to Black Widow saving Steve and Sam from being shot in the car and generally being awesome to Sam and his beautiful flight maneuvers to Winter Soldier suddenly showing up in front ...more

This movie did more then Avengers ever did. It worked as a great spy thriller flick, had a fantastic tie into the first film, made the winter soldier a threatening and intimidating villain ( best one sense loki ), and use great character development, action, twists, and even camoes to it's advantage.

I am sick and tired of Avengers being called the best, when it is clearly not. It had a weak story, Loki's plan was confusing, and it felt like we learned nothing about these characters! Captain America The Winter Soldier on the other hand, is an almost flawless movie with great effects, awesome action, and memorable characters. Are there a few nitpicks, SURE, but they're nitpicks are the rest is great. AVENGERS CAN SUUCCK IIIT!

Hard choice between this and Infinity War, but still, this one has such an interesting spy-action-thriller vibe that introduces new, great characters. There’s also the soundtrack and that Arnim Zola scene.

5 Iron Man

Come on! This is a classic! Only something groundbreaking could top this, and The Avengers broke a lot of ground, so Iron man definitely deserves the No. 2 spot.

A classic. The one that started the whole idea of a shared cinematic universe. Totally deserves the respect it gets. Robert Downey Jr. absolutely nails it as the arrogant, yet caring, Tony Stark.

My favorite because it's the highest scoring (ex: rotten tomatoes: 93% ) critical wise and it's the film quite possibly responsible for the Avengers.

Actually, the rating on Rotten Tomatoes is now 95% which makes it the highest rated superhero movie ever, even more than The Dark Knight, and it beats Avengers as well - Leoda1234

This was the first marvel movie I ever watched. my parents were out on a date or something & I was watching this w my little brother. I was 6 @ the time. this is a 12/13+ movie? - SuperMiloX

6 Avengers: Infinity War

I'm shocked that this isn't higher on the list. This was a PERFECT culmination of 10 whole years and was, undoubtedly, a masterpiece. Josh Brolin did a REMARKABLE job as Thanos in Guardians of the Galaxy and I'm glad we got to learn more about him in this movie. I loved the interaction between the characters and the actors' chemistry with each other, especially those who hadn't met beforehand! - epicdave01

Thanos is such an amazing villain because he's just so hard to hate! Amazing background story for motivation, and him having to kill Gamora was one of the saddest things in Marvel! Except for the fact that Hawkeye wasn't with the team, every Avengers was portrayed well and given good development. Wanda having to kill Vision was also a remarkable scene to watch. This whole movie was exactly what I was hoping for. Strong storyline, good characters, and sad as hell!

It was my favourite marvel film ever, we finally know where the soul stone was all this time and and Thanos gets all the infinity stones power, space, reality, soul, time and mind and he wins

This movie is amazing! Good 10 year devolopment

7 Spider-Man: Homecoming Spider-Man: Homecoming

While this movie is not, in any way, better than Spider-Man 2, it is definitely one of my favorites and comes pretty close to Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2. I was THRILLED to see that we would finally see Spider-Man interact with the Avengers and after watching Civil War, I couldn't wait to see more of Tom Holland's Peter Parker! Homecoming is definitely a great Spider-Man movie that any Spider-Man fan will enjoy, especially those who are fans of the comics more than the movies. - epicdave01

This movie was amazing. Great storyline and we didn't have to see Uncle Ben dying and another origin story. We got an actual high school Spider-Man movie.

Soundtrack was top notch and so was the score, the movie was so relatable that it just made you wanna go out and get bitten by a radioactive spider on purpose. - Tristan1975R5

A nice and proper way to introduce Spider-Man into the MCU - codgtamk34

8 Thor: Ragnarok Thor: Ragnarok

Best Thor movie out of all of them for me Thank you Marvel!

Very funny and bad ass at some parts. Well directed and acted too!

One of the best marvel movie, should definite one of the top 10

The only good Thor in my opinion - codgtamk34

9 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Hilarious, brilliantly written, good story and villain. Made me cry too and laugh so hard my sides hurt.

Not as good as the original but still very entertaining, I love how developed Nebula is as well - darthvadern

I can't say more than what has been said. It's amazing.

Honestly I liked it but I would put it in the bottom half of my list - SimeOh

10 Ant-Man

The movie that taught us never to underestimate any small superhero again, and made us want to buy some Ant-Man comic books. Entertaining and funny, "Ant-Man" had brought the superhero to my heart, making it one of my favorites.

I didn't think that Ant-Man would get a movie (certainly not before Spider Man) but he's awesome! - DCfnaf

I'm not really interested in the marvel films but this movie was a great stand alone movie and I absolutely loved it

It was way better than Age of Ultron simply because it had better humour, a villian whose plan actually made some sense and actually being exciting - darthvadern

The Newcomers

? The Godfather, Part II

Probably the best MCU film ever made.
Al Pacino >>> Tony Stark.

How could anyone make the mistake of saying this is MCU? - SimeOh

? Logan

Should be in top 5

Not in the MCU but still good - codgtamk34

The Contenders

11 Black Panther

My boys, this movie rocked the theatres in 2018. This superhero is so boss too. Why does everyone hate the WHAT ARE THOSE, part of the movie. This movie is one of marvel's greatest movies, and it deserves top 3!

Great movie. It was pretty emotional and delightful. - HoldenFanatic

Not top 3 but the 10th best one - wriddhak

Everyone loved it and I don't like it - SimeOh

12 Doctor Strange

The amount of times I watched this is unhealthy. I'm watching this right now! - TheFourthWorld

It's actually a Law of Attraction movie! Plus, Rachel McAdams is a babe. - KnightofLight

How can you possibly rank this when it's even out until fall?

The only tolerable Marvel movie. - winterbreeze

13 The Avengers: Age of Ultron

It's so underrated

My number 1 ever

They nerfed Widow in this one, but what they did with a Scarlet Witch was phenomenal, and Wanda is now my favorite character in the MCU - PineconeFace

This movie introduced Scarlet Witch, aka my favorite female superhero in the MCU - codgtamk34

14 Captain America: The First Avenger

This is probably Marvel's most underrated movie. I'd probably put this at 5 or 6, personally. I mean, it's so much better than the unbelievably forgettable Iron Man 2.

This is a really fun movie. Although not perfect, it's a film that anyone can just sit down and watch without having to google the previous 12 movies to decipher who all of the characters actually are and have a good time.

They learned a lesson with this: don't challenge a bigger movie. They may have performed well in the us but they sure disappointed in other countries.

Forgettable but a decent movie overall - darthvadern

15 Iron Man 3

Why so much hate of this movie I agree that some scene or story doesn't make sense but why deserve that much bad - Thirdwind

You cannot put this bad movie over Ultron and Ant Man. - DCfnaf

Ant-man and ultron are so much better - Triceratops

It's better than 1 - SuperMiloX

16 Thor

This movie is quite underrated, sure it's not as good as Ragnarok and it has big flaws like it taking too much place on Midgard but it's miles better than Thor: The Dark World which was just confusing at best - darthvadern

Thor is really funny

Love. This. Movie. It belongs higher. - Michaela4444

I love this - SuperMiloX

17 Ant-Man and the Wasp

This movie is awesome! It's better than the original in my opinion. This is one of my most favorite Marvel movies! - TheFourthWorld

Its funny people hate this movie when I and others consider it better than the original - codgtamk34

It is very boring. - BlackBlaster

18 The Incredible Hulk

This movie is just so underrated, I consider it to be better than almost all of the movies on the list, the only movies better in my opinion are probably Infinity War and Doctor Strange (and maybe Ant-Man), the brazilian setting was lit and it was so exciting - darthvadern

This film is criminally underrated. It deserves way more praise than it gets.

Seeing as 3 of these movies don't exist, I'm guessing this should be at least no. 7 and because this movie is awesome, IT SHOULD BE NUMBER 1!

push it up

19 Iron Man 2

Why is this and its sequel on here? They both suck! - Michaela4444

They do not suck

Great movie

20 Avengers: Endgame

I just realized they kinda used the style how they show their characters in suicide squad. But even though the movie hasn't came out yet, I bet the guardians and the avengers are going to be AWESOME!

We should probably wait till it comes out on May 3, 2019, then we can put it on here after that if we liked it. - HoldenFanatic

Too early to be on the list - hugh201

Its going to be the best movie! cheyeaaa!? #@%*

21 Avengers: Infinity War - Part 2

It's got a different name now (thank goodness)

This isn't out yet. It releases in 2019 - Username123

22 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

not out - SuperMiloX

This again. Like I said for Avengers 4, can’t we just wait till the movie actually comes out (which this’ll be in 2020), then you can add it here after that if you liked it. - HoldenFanatic

23 Spider-Man: Far from Home Spider-Man: Far from Home

This one looks like it will be awesomne - darthvadern

This is not even in theaters :facepalm:

not out - SuperMiloX

24 Captain Marvel


yes. ;3

not out - SuperMiloX

25 Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Definitely should be higher.


26 X-Men: Days of Future Past

I swear I submitted this already. Anyway, the X-Men movies are by far better filmmaking than the Avengers movies. X-Men only had Origins: Wolverine when it came to mediocre movies, whereas Avengers shot itself in the face with the disastrous Infinity War, after a mediocre film in Age of Ultron. At this rate, the fourth Avengers film may kill Marvel's reputation entirely.

27 Thor: The Dark World

Nah, this one's just so bad and forgettable - darthvadern

The fact that this ranks lower than films that haven't come out yet or aren't even part of the MCU is pretty funny

28 Forrest Gump

Not marvel, but Tom Hanks
