Top Ten Marvel Cinematic Universe Movies

The Top Ten
1 The Avengers The Avengers Product Image

Honestly. All the movies in the MCU are good. Dark world, hulk, and iron man 2 were just average like the worst of the MCU movies are average. I don't think there's a bad Marvel movie.

This film changed movie history as we know it, it proved that a cinematic universe can be made and can be successful. This is THE best M.C.U. movie.

Nope. all that happened was the ship being destroyed for over an hour, then fighting for the last 20 minutes. I walked out of the theater halfway through because nothing was happening

This is what inspired the cinematic universe craze. It destroyed at the box office and has changed the landscape of movies forever.

2 Avengers: Infinity War Avengers: Infinity War Product Image

Alright, I think that this should easily be number one by a considerable amount but I might as well put down my personal top ten with my personal ratings while I'm at it:

1. Avengers: Infinity War (9.5/10, it was an exceptional and amazing cinematic experience that was so satisfying and mind blowing at the same time)

2. Thor: Ragnarok (9.5/10, also an incredible and amazing movie that was so enjoyable and so well done)

3. Avengers: Endgame (9/10, a great conclusion to the first saga of marvel and an amazing movie experience)

4. The Avengers (8.5/10, a classic and rewatchable movie)

5. Black Panther (8.5/10, incredible movie)

6. Spider Man: Far From Home (8.5/10, I personally just loved everything about this movie)

7. Captain America: Civil War (8.5/10, such a good movie in absolutely every way)

8. Captain America: Winter Soldier (8.5/10, much like Civil War it was a great action movie and great movie in general)

9. Doctor ...more

I was getting kinda tired of superhero movies by now, but Infinity War was like one final hurrah and it ruled! Thanos is easily the best MCU villain of them all!

Definitely the best movie. I often end up having to choose between this and endgame, but the scale of infinity war is just impossible to beat.

This is the peak of the MCU. Thanos is a villain that you can actually feel for. *SPOILERS AHEAD* He has to kill his daughter to accomplish his goal, and when he does, despite the cliffhanger, you feel like it's a proper ending. He sits and watches the wakandan sunset, and that paired with the 'thanos will return' at the end of the credits, tells you that, despite the fact thanos is the 'bad guy', he's the main character. Its HIS story. I can't wait for endgame to come out this week, I'm sure it will be as good as this film.

3 Guardians of the Galaxy Guardians of the Galaxy Product Image

This is the underdog: the film about characters no one had even heard of, that saved the MCU. Despite its age, the music, emotion, and humor make it one of the best.

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

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.

4 Captain America: Civil War Captain America: Civil War Product Image

This movie is the best MCU movie, marvel movie, and superhero movie in my opinion. Its strong dramatic elements with some comedy spriknled in just right, mixing dozens of heroes while adding some new ones, without it up- is talent. Also not having a typical villain but rather having the heroes fractured and split from within is a new look at the genre which adds more emotion and raises the stakes for story telling.

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.

It's the most mature and thought provoking movie of MCU.
Every thing in it made sense and the reason for the clash was also well defined and understandable. Towards the end, the darker tone of the movie (and Tony's emotions) really appeals the the viewers. It's simply the best or at least at par with avengers if not better.

I felt like this is short, because of cool action scene's, because Batman v Superman was 2hrs-38mins but it was boring. I felt it was too long I wanted to go out of the cinema and just wait of the action, anyway that's just near the end, or sleep. Civil War, I watched it in Imax it was 2hrs-40mins, and it's so cool, non-stop action (But Force Awakens had more), punching fighting was the best, best Marvel Cinematic Universe movie ever.

If Watchmojo puts Civil War #1, he/she should say "It hasn't even gone half way through 2016, and it was hailed the years best, and the best Marvel Cinematic Universe movie" followed Rogue One as #2, but I don't know anymore movies to be #3. LOL - Superawesome person

5 Captain America: The Winter Soldier Captain America: The Winter Soldier Product Image

Still my second favorite MCU movie to date. It's a blast from start to finish and was the first of the fantastic movies made by the brilliant Russo bros.

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.

6 Iron Man Iron Man Product Image

Winter soldier:too many dialogues
Infinity War:bad ending
Guardians of the galaxy:humorous, but 18+ for Star Lord
Civil War:iron man should have won the final fight
Avengers 1:what is good? Except of fresh stuff? Even age of Ultron is better.

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.

7 Avengers: Endgame Avengers: Endgame Product Image

There is only one sentence I can think of to get out mah feelings of this here film: A flawed, but satisfying conclusion. I have not watced any new MCU stuff since this movie came out, nor to I intend to.

Endgame is in my opinion the best and the biggest movie in the MCU. The reason is that it shows victory at a price which is pretty rare in the superhero universe. It marks the end of a saga consisting of 20+ movies and it has exceeded expectations. All of the characters arcs are done beautifully and each character is given a satisfying end/part. I agree that it needs all the previous movies to see that it's a masterpiece, still a great movie. I think The MCU just peaked with Avengers: Endgame and rightfully so.

Love Marvel!

1. Avengers Endgame

Endgame is my favorite MCU movie and the my favorite movie of all time. Just so well made.

What made Endgame stick out for me is the time heist, the death of some well known heroes, (not going to name any), entire final battle, iron man's funeral, I love you 3000, and the avengers assemble scene. Every part of Endgame would either be funny, depressing, or just gets you pumped up. Every part of the movie was good in a way. By the way, Avengers: Endgame made about $2.8 billion dollars in theaters, and passed Avatar!

8 Thor: Ragnarok Thor: Ragnarok Product Image

I have a list full of hot takes. However, the fact that Thor: Ragnarok is my favorite MCU Movie is no hot take. Before I discuss it here is my list. My FREAKY opinion, if you will.

22) Iron Man 2

02) Spider-Man: Far From Home
01) Thor: Ragnarok

Super hillarious and colourful. The Thor movie I had been waiting for! I got NO faith in Taika for Love and Thunder, but he nailed Ragnarok!

The funniest movie EVER! this film delivered on pretty much everything: character development, plot, dialog... the one downside was the lack of emotional value, but you can forget that. You'll be laughing to hard at "Get help".

The best movie ever! Thor is the mighty God of thunder and is the most powerful avenger right now. This movie was amazing. Better than iron man. Deserves no1. Hela is the most powerful solo film villain. It is the best movie ever

9 Spider-Man: Homecoming Spider-Man: Homecoming Product Image

I am honestly not a fan of Spider Man, but this was a really good movie. I was not happy to have him in the MCU, but I take that back, he was a fantastic addition.

I am probably biased because I've seen this film 8 too many times, but I LOVE it! The humor and characters never cease to amaze me.

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.

Tom holland is the worst actor to play spider man. I mean, he does his own stunts, but that part where he was crying in the parking lot like a 2-year-old was just too much for me. I switched off the T.V. and went to read.

10 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Product Image

Yondu's death was so sad! and the fact that Peter had to carry his father's dead body until he was picked up is so gruesome and horrifying.

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

It was between this one and the first GOTG. I went with this one because I just felt the plot and villain were better.

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

The Contenders
11 Black Panther Black Panther Product Image

I see a lot of people saying they did or didn't like it in the comments. Come on, guys.. people have different opinions. I personally really liked it because I thought it was a really unique and different than most things I've seen, but I still respect the people who didn't like it. I'd personally want to hear your opinions on WHY you think it is good or bad. That gives people things to think about!

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!

An overrated film with a TERRIBLE joke thrown into it. It's still decent though, but this isn't top 10.

Okay but let's be honest here.. the plot, theme, and graphics together were AMAZING and played out perfectly

12 Ant-Man Ant-Man Product Image

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!

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

An underrated movie

13 Doctor Strange Doctor Strange Product Image

The MCU's first glimpse into the realm of magic is still strong today, with amazing characters and a great plot, plus those little funny moments that we love about these movies.

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

This is one of my favourites, Doctor Strange is the strongest superhero and the effects were lit!

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

14 Captain America: The First Avenger Captain America: The First Avenger Product Image

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.

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.

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.

Pretty good movie, but the sequels were way better.

15 The Avengers: Age of Ultron The Avengers: Age of Ultron Product Image

This is the best in the 'avengers', but ultron looks like terminator for some reason.

It's so underrated

My number 1 ever

I liked it a bit.

16 Spider-Man: Far from Home Spider-Man: Far from Home Product Image

Nope nope nope. It is nowhere as good as homecoming and I was very close to sleeping in the cinema.

The spider sense drone thing was awesome!

How is this below The First Avenger?

Deserves top 15

17 Thor Thor Product Image

I really hate how Thor treated Loki in this movie. he brushed him off and cut him off and dismissed everything he said.

This is one of the most underrated movies in history.

This should go at like 7!

Thor is really funny

18 Iron Man 3 Iron Man 3 Product Image

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

I'm sorry to people that love this movie, but I hate it.

Bad movie but better than Age Of Ultron!

It's better than 1

19 Ant-Man and the Wasp Ant-Man and the Wasp Product Image

This movie is underrated. I really like how the movie itself was the perfect lighthearted romp we needed after infinity war, but also got creepy with Ghost. And the final twist with the snap was just plain awesome.

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

It is very boring.

20 Iron Man 2 Iron Man 2 Product Image

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

They do not suck

21 The Incredible Hulk The Incredible Hulk Product Image

I'll admit that this film hasn't aged well since Edward Norton didn't reprise his role in future MCU films, but this film is actually good and gets too much hate.

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

I love the incredible hulk. Most childhood classics are beauty and the beast or sleeping beauty. This is mine! Bump it up pleeeaaasssee

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

22 Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings
23 Black Widow Black Widow Product Image

Have'nt seen it, but it was far too late. I've loved Nat for a long time (for character and looks), but this movie seems like just a generic MCU movie and not the spy thriller I was hoping for.

Not even out yet, but I know this will be awesome because Nat finally gets her own movie!

24 Thor: The Dark World Thor: The Dark World Product Image

Honestly, why does everyone hate this film so much. Sure, Malekith was bad, but other than that is was actually pretty good. It set up GOTG with its cosmic approach, and also wrapped up some loose ends from the avengers.

Although it ain't Ragnarok, I wouldn't call it a bad movie. I actually THORoughly enjoyed Thor: the Dark World.

Literally I'm not joking we re watched this and I don't remember any of it weeks later...

25 Captain Marvel Captain Marvel Product Image Carol Susan Jane Danvers, or Captain Marvel, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. She is portrayed by Brie Larson in the movies Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame. Created by writer Roy Thomas and artist Gene Colan, Danvers first appeared as an officer ...read more.

I liked the movie, but I don't like Carol Danvers. She's just too OP and everything is too easy for her. And Brie Larson wasn't that good.

Twas 6/10 some bad acting and bad storytelling but otherwise enjoyable. I don't hate it because bry larson is a feminist or anything.

The movie itself was alright but what made it really good was Brie Larson. She's kinda hot to be honest

It wasn't as bad as people have been saying, not the best, but still in the top 15... Black Panther sucks too
