Top Ten Marvel Superhero Movies

The ten greatest superhero films based of of characters from the Marvel Universe.

The Top Ten

1 The Avengers The Avengers Product Image

Awesome to see all the marvel heroes come together in this awesome film. The characters are all very human, and have excellent development. They didn't need to worry about giving each character a backstory and persona because they already did that in their respected films. Also, the movie is serious while also being superhero-y, something many films couldn't pull off. Overall, the best marvel film, and my favorite superhero movie.

As some just said hands down, hand down! This Is an awesome movie that I would watch over and over again about 17 times. Iron mans awesome, Hawkeye is incredibly skilful, this is number 1 and it deserves to stay here.

Hands down one of my favourite movies ever. So much action and having all the avengers together is just perfect, along with having one of the greatest movie villains ever

Easily the best. Great to see how the characters come together

2 Iron Man Iron Man Product Image

The Avengers was a rather mediocre film from a cinematic aspect. Bland plot, little to no character development, weak dialogue. It missed most elements that really define a movie as great, and is considered as such simply due to the unification of the Marvel heroes, and he CGI.

Iron Man however, has a lot more to offer. The plot isn't one dimensional. It's a rather interesting story that follows not just the beginning, but also the evolution of Tony Stark. It has witty diolague, and spot on delivery as expected from RDJ. The film has a great balance between action and story, as well as great pacing throughout the entire film, which are two things The Avengers simply did not have.

All that easily makes Iron Man the best Marvel movie, only rivaled by the excellence that is Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Both bring all the elements to not only make a great comic book movie, but also a great cinematic piece.

RDJ IS Tony Stark, and I love the fact the film is both gritty and flashy- and with a supporting cast including Gwyneth Paltrow, Jeff Bridges and Terrence Howard- what's not to love?

It started the whole marvel movie franchise era, and it still is the best one.

This was amazing. Tony Stark showed us that this was a start to a new Marvel Phase. Marvel Movie Rate: 9.59

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

This movie brought a lot of combat, definitely more so than any other Marvel film. It was not the kind of action with random magical beams shooting everywhere, fighting monsters, or robots. They were well trained soldiers in firefights or hand to hand. It's proven that people enjoy that kind of action more. The choreography was excellent. This film also brought a highly engaging plot that this cinematic universe had never seen before: SHIELD is no longer an ally but the enemy. Captain America faced a political and technological threat as well as a formidable assassin who was a former friend. Million of lives were on the line in a scenario which is not so far fetched, which helped the viewers care about the threat. Strong performances by Nick Fury, Black Widow, and Falcon added more awesomeness. Best film that I have ever seen by Marvel, and way better than the first movie. It's in the conversion with the Christian Bale Batman series for my favorite superhero movies ever!

I love this movie. It's my favorite movie period. Civil War is a very close second but I had to choose this one. It has so much to it. First it has the hottest guy ever Captain America. Second it has other great heroes like Black Widow and Nick Fury. It even introduces a new hero Falcon. Third it has so much action in it more than most Marvel movies. Fourth it brings back Bucky Captain Americas old friend but as a villain. It was so surprising and unexpected till the very end. I would never thought of Bucky saving Captain America at the end. I thought CA was going to die and I started crying in the theaters! Its just so amazing and I love it. It's the first Marvel Movie I'll show my kids but they'll probably have to see the First Avenger first to understand. On your left!

Somewhat gritty, completely believable hand-to-hand fight choreography, solid and graceful character arcs, awesome characters (Falcon anybody? ), and smooth dialogue all make this the best Marvel movie to date, forever silencing those who say that Captain America "isn't cool." Plus, the heroes didn't change characters completely between movies. I could go on, but that would make this an essay.

While I love my Guardians, this movie was cinema gold to me. Evans pulled off Cap better then what he did in the first movie, and Falcon and the Winter Soldier were portrayed exceptionally. Although I already knew who the Winter Soldier was, for anyone who didn't, it would have made an excellent surprise. Best movie Marvel has made yet.

4 Guardians of the Galaxy Guardians of the Galaxy Product Image

I'll be honest, I wasn't too sure about this movie judging by the trailers (which weren't that great) but Guardians of the Galaxy delivered in all the right places. Perfect blend of action, effects, and plenty of humor to make it entertaining from start to finish.

Kay Honey, please explain why this isn't number 1, I mean, glad it's in the top 5's but deserves higher. All of the others movies above it r really good, but don't pull in nearly halve of the humor (and great music ) as the Guardians. Not only do they have humor, their action scenes are truely amazing. Those two when they mash together made this a Marvel movie worth it

Maybe not the best actual film, but certainly the most entertaining. It's a roller coaster from start to finish and defiantly the funniest marvel movie. I'm sure as more people manage to watch it, it will climb up this list, I can't believe films such as iron man 3 and the amazing spider man are above this. but I suppose its just because more people have seen them

I just saw this movie and I must say I was very happy with it. It had a nice balance of humor and action that could make anyone like it. Easily number one or two of the best marvel movies

5 Spider-Man 2 Spider-Man 2 Product Image

Spider Man 2 is the best of all the Spider Man movies its such a well done movie the plot revolves around Peter Parker struggling with the pros and cons of super hero life and then without warning he starts to lose his powers which couldn't happen at a worst time with villain Doc Oc wrecking having on the city and trying to rebuild his failed creation and making matters worst the love of his life Mary Jane is getting married with another guy and his best friend Harry Osbourne obsessed with killing Spiderman who he blames for the death of his father.

Set the standard for superhero movies to come. One of the greatest films ever made. 2nd best superhero movie is Daredevil Director's Cut.

I just recently re-watched the entire Spider-Man movie series (including the 2 reboot movies) and after some thought I came to re-realize that 'Spider-Man 2' is still my all-time favourite superhero movie. As far as the flashy, colourful, comic-style superhero movie goes you can't really top this.

Great villain, great story. Nice set up for Harry in Spider-Man 3, which still disappointed though. And also, one of the greatest, if not the greatest scene of all superhero films (train fight / train stop scene).

6 Captain America: Civil War Captain America: Civil War Product Image

This movie was excellent. If you guys haven't seen it you should. Go to the theater or if you can't wait till it comes out on DVD and make sure you put it on hold at the library early. I waited since January to see it. It's my second favorite movie of all time. Winter Soldier is my favorite bit this is a really really close second. It's so epic and amazing. I won't tell you any spoiler alerts but I'll tell you this. It's so much better than I expected and I expected it to be awesome. After the theater when I saw it I was dancing and was so happy. It made me that happy. I've been smiling so much this week thanks to Captain America. He rules and Iron Man is trash. Oh by the way there are 2 end credit scenes. One at the first mini credits and one at the very end of the real actual credits in case you missed them or is going to see it. It's so amazing I would recommend it to your friends or family.

This definitely deserved to be added. And I am very happy to see that it's in the top ten. What a fantastic pleasure it was watching this movie.

Best Marvel Movie to date! No errors to explain this movie. I hope it gets higher in the list

Brilliant emotional intensity at the end. The consequences perhaps should have been higher following the airport fight but overall a really entertaining flick that left phase 3 blown wide open. I'm not sure if it's the best in the MCU, however it's up there with Iron Man, Winter Soldier and the first Guardians. As the only one of those outside the top 5, it gets my vote.

7 X2: X-Men United X2: X-Men United Product Image

It's still the best X-Men movie (in my opinion) and was (for nine years afterwards) the biggest-scale superhero team-up movie ever made. Too bad its terrific set-up for a sequel went nowhere with the next film.

Really intense, Wolverine is great in this one. Funny when he is scared of the cat. Epic when he uses his claw to start car. He's is truly the mix of intense, epic, and funny.

Nice and nice and nice the real nice, one of the evergreen movies of hugh jackman

X2 is a brilliant superhero movie, one that I think stretches what the genre can be in the best way.

8 Avengers: Infinity War

Actually it is the best MCU movie. It should be higher than Avengers 1. Also Thanos rocks!

Phenomenal movie. Ending was sad, but perfect set up for Endgame.

Should have been number 5, this movie is really REALLY good! I love this movie!

Should be a LOT higher. It was funny, the ending was extremely sad, and each character had a good amount of time on-screen. It basically put every superhero movie from previous years together to set up Endgame.

9 X-Men: Days of Future Past X-Men: Days of Future Past Product Image

This was sort of a sequel to both X-men:First Class and X-men 3. It was by far the greatest X-men movie and most likely the best Marvel movie, so I'm not sure why it's not on here yet.

I really liked it. It was a continuation of both The Last Stand and First Class, but still kept it homely with Wolverine and a few familiar faces. I loved how they showed each character's side, so you wouldn't hate any of them.

This movie was super great because it really built up suspense, especially when you saw the futuristic parts it was so scary because I really didn't know if Wolverine would succeed or not and that is the mark of a good plot, whether movie of book

This should be #2 on your list! Best X-men Movie Ever

10 Spider-Man Spider-Man Product Image

Best 2002 Film Of all Of
Action and Superhero Genre To First Star Our

This film is so awesome! Way better than the not so amazing spiderman reboot garbage.

Why this is better than the amazing series, he learns a lesson about responsibility and not killing, the death scene was actually sad, showed the struggle in his life, has better movie tie in games, better more epic intro music, and more I can name.

It is much better than other spiderman movies where there is a lot of talking but Spider-Man is packed full of action.I also love green goblin as the villain.

The Contenders

11 Deadpool Deadpool Product Image

My mom said I can't watch it because it's rated R but Deadpool is still awesome.

I love that a movie that hasn't even been made is higher than actual movies. I love you, internet.

THIS should be in the number one spot even though it's an antihero film, but it's a great time, it's true to the character, the source material, the zany nature, and it's got nonstop action, tons of blood n gore, and ridiculous humor, it's marvel's version of crank basically, and it even pokes fun at all the other marvel movies and gives them the middle finger too lol

SO GOOD! Deadpool' like a comedy GOD! When I saw this I was like! This is like what good! As he would say! So damn violent! Which makes it good! I really like the part at the end! WACK WACK SPLAT!

12 Logan Logan Product Image

Faboulas action,great acting and it's not just a superhero movie.It's an example of neo-western genre.

Top five Comic Book movies of all time. Best x-men movie. The redeemer of the terrible wolverine trilogy. The precursor to in-depth characters, dark, rated r, super hero movies...

Great movie, with great story, great ending and Hugh´s perfomance.

One of the only movies to ever make me cry. This film tells a story no other Marvel movie would dare to tell. Not just a perfect superhero movie, but a perfect movie in general. Do yourselves a favour and watch this if you haven't. And if you already have, watch it again. It's that damn good.

13 X-Men: First Class X-Men: First Class Product Image

Believe it or not, I used to more or less dislike this film (gasp). I think I used to resent it for throwing the franchises' continuity out of whack. Now, 7 years later, the franchise has totally stopped caring about maintaining a believable timeline (We're supposed to not notice that 'First Class' and 'Apocalypse' take place 30 years apart while NOBODY has aged more than a couple of years? ) so now I don't care anymore either. Consider me a fan.

This is, without a doubt, my favorite X-Men movie. For one, the characters are absolutely 3-dimensional & fun to watch, showing even little-known mutants that deserved a spotlight. Second, the fights & special effects were purely awesome. Not to mention, it proved they could have a good X-Men film without piggybacking on Wolverine by only giving him a small cameo halfway through. My one complaint is that they killed off one of my favorite recruits after 10 minutes of screen-time. Otherwise, it's practically perfect. Well done, Sony. Now if only the Fantastic Four movies were this good...

Great movie, Best X-Men movie I've seen, the only one I haven't seen is X-Men Days of Future Past, and that looks even better.

I love this movie, so much! It has an awesome all star cast! James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, and Kevin Bacon!

14 The Amazing Spider-Man The Amazing Spider-Man Product Image

This Movie does not deserve to be in the top 15! This should be in the 50-100 spots.

Ugh don't get me started with this movie. It's so awful! It has probably the worst villian I have EVER seen along with a subpar plot and many things that just don't make sense (LOOKING AT YOU PETER WHEN YOU DATED GWEN STACY EVEN THOUGH HER DAD TOLD YOU NOT TO). Oh and don't get me started with his suit.

Wasn't expecting much, but instantly became my favourite Marvel movie when it finished. Such a great film with great new actors, villain and a more engaging story with a more accurate-to-the-comics Spiderman. Not just a great reboot, but a great movie altogether

I am Spider-Man in every comment I wrote this I have xbox 360 amazing Spider-Man 1 and 2 but there is no black suit classic I can't find it I am using my moms phone but I am there son I like Spider-Man so much I want to him

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

Good Cap movie. Chris Evans does a great job as Steve Rogers, in fact the whole cast was phenomenal. I also liked that the movie was based in WWII. I thought Marvel might just skip by that part in history and jump to present times.

Honestly, I loved every part of this movie. The plot was well-constructed, the action was well-executed and the actors were phenomenal. A must watch! Oh, and P.S; staging the film during WWII was a fantastic blast from the past! This is one of my favourite movies!

Why do so many people say that The Winter Soldier is better, this is the movie it's the perfect combination of an action, war, and superhero movie, and The Winter Soldier has too much talking, but This movie is packed with action!

First marvel movie I ever watched. I loved learning about his origin story this should be higher come on!

16 Iron Man 3 Iron Man 3 Product Image

This movie was good in almost all aspects. Good plot, pretty solid cast, good action. So what was wrong? The Mandarin twist. For someone who loves the Mandarin character this was a massive disappointment. Not to mention they had been building him up as a bad ass all movie, and you yearned to finally see him, and that's what we get? Sorry Marvel, you took all the wind out of that movie, with that move.


1. Iron Man 3watched it today and IT hAS ACTION, LOVE, and basically everything, I RECOMEND THIS TO U,
2. Thor the dark world Perfect movie, I watched in the theaters, chris hemsworth and tom hiddleston DID AN AMAZING JOB, aka if you didn't know, chris is thor, tom is loki, loki is so funny in the movie
3Avengers awesome movie, I watched it like five times, IT HAS BASICALLY THE BEST SUPERHEROES, Iron Man, Thor,
Hulk, Captain America, the others are eh, but my brother LOVES HAWKEEY, he is cool though, but is not a superhero, black widow is ok, but samuel jackson did great acting as nick fury
4Thor is an amazing movie because even though thor is selfish in the beginning and stupid, HE IS AMAZING IN THE END, really good, I like loki better in thor the dark world though... that is my opinion, but natalie portman did a good job
5 Iron Man 2- I watched this three years ago so, I remember it was really good, but forget all of it ...more

An underrated film, in all honesty. There's a great story here and the twists in the story should have been applauded when, instead, they were condemned. Why? Because "tons" of fans wanted the real Mandarin. If I recall, barely anyone (outside of comic readers - who are few in number compared to the mass media audience) knew who Iron Man even was before the first movie in 2008. It's not like how 'Spider-Man 3' ruined Venom. Seriously, people. Appreciate the movie for what it tried to be; original.

This movie had some very good scenes. This movie had Tony Stark facing the Mandarin. Marvel Movie Rate: 8.9

17 Avengers: Age of Ultron Avengers: Age of Ultron Product Image

I really hate scarlet witch she is a total butthole. Quicksilver was just as horrilble until he saved hawkeye

This was better than the first Avengers movie. It was better written and had characters that you could relate to. The emotions were more conflicted and better explained, and that definitely helped. However, one thing missed: This was an opportunity to have a villain maybe too big and too bad, but in the end, it was just like the newest Fantastic Four movie: too easy.

I really like Scarlet Witch, Quicksilver, and Vision. Like,REALLY LIKE

Even though Ultron was not as good as Loki, (just by a little ) This movie (saw today) made me say, this is probably the best movie I have ever saw. Marvel Movie Rate: 9.78

18 Avengers: Endgame

how is this below The Amazing Spider-Man, Iron Man 3, and Avengers Age Of Ultron?

HOW THE HECK IS THIS NOT NUMBER ONE! It is not only my favorite marvel movie but my favorite movie this movie is just so legendary

I have never cried in any Marvel movies. This is truly the saddest movie of the entire franchise.

how the hell is endgame not #1?There is seriously something wrong with you guys.

19 The Incredible Hulk The Incredible Hulk Product Image

I love this movie way more better than the first. A lot more action, destruction, and actually has an enemy the Hulk faced off. The first movie was just awful and all the Hulk does is destroy buildings. Get this to at least #10 please.

Hulks always been my favorite marvel hero and Edward Norton did a great Bruce Banner... So ill go for this one.

This movie was intense and the soundtrack was also amazing. The first marvel movie I ever watched. I can watch this movie over and over.

This movie hit all the right notes. A great backstory for Banner, an awesome plot, and great casting. Especially Edward Norton as Banner/Hulk. I still think he is better then Ruffalo in all aspects.

20 Ant-Man Ant-Man Product Image

While I feel like Avengers 2 was the best film, I am a bit biased towards it, because Ultron is my favorite comic villain. I just saw Ant-Man last weekend and it was amazing. The plot developed at a steady pace (which I feel is one thing 'Ultron' lacked, since they had to cut, like, an hour off) and the humor was wicked awesome. I love Luis' inserts. So far, my favorite movies are Avengers 2, Ant-Man, Avengers, and Captain America 2. I'm looking forward to Black Panther (he's my favorite comic character) and Captain America 3.

It looks like if it is going to be a great film I am looking forward to it

The newest addition to the MCU is certainly one of the best movies of all time with Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas giving outstanding performances

A charming performance by Paul Rudd as Scott Lang backed up by Michael Douglas as Hank Pym. This movie is responsible for elevating Ant Man from being the Aquaman of Marvel to being a fantastic character in his own right.

21 Thor Thor Product Image

The reason this movie doesn't get the love it deserves is because it wasn't hyped up. Nobody really gave any care about Thor. However, the acting is amazing, the fighting is decent, the romance... subpar, but the visuals are STUNNING. It is actually DIZZYING how well it was made... and, like I mentioned, the acting was touching and relatable.

The Thor series probably has the best casting out there. Idris Elba knocks it out of the park as Heimdall, the Warriors three are portrayed great, and Portman plays her part well. Even Kat Dennings was tolerable in the first installment.

It's the best bit not so much loved. Why? Well, it wasn't promoted like others and also, people do not know how important and might Thor really is Marvel Universe. If they knew, it's not be a surprise if Thor was on No. 1!

This is my favorite movie. It has a PERFECT cast and storyline. The characters are likeable, and Chris nailed Thor's character. Tom Hiddleston did an amazing job too. Perfect, just perfect

22 Black Panther Black Panther Product Image

I've never been a fan of marvel. But this film force me to be a marvel fan, love this movie, love this character. It should be the best marvel superhero of all time. Now America's White people will give respect to the BLACKs a little bit more. The film could change the future of black film directors. It is sure that the film is like wonder woman of 2018. Wonder woman credit- highest grossing movie by a female director, Black panther credit- highest grossing movie by a black director. I hope, it pass 4 billions.

Have they placed black panther 20! What, iron man 3 is higher than this! What, I mean seriously come on this movie is way better than avengers 1 black panther got 92% on rotten tomatoes! All I'm gonna say is that it's a disgrace that black panther is not in the top ten.

I love this movie but I think some people are acting like there were no black marvel characters before this or something (Nick Fury was white in the comics). And there are tons of great black film directors. Look at M. Night Shamalayan! There was no racial problem within Marvel before this, people are just looking for something to complain about. Just like it would be weird to make Miles Morales white, it would be weird to make a white comic character black, but they made a good choice and cast Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, who is one of the most die hard characters in the MCU.

There is something different about this movie compared to other marvel movies. Actually so many things are different making it new and different for the marvel fans than your standard action movie with a lot of jokes. This movie was great!

23 Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Product Image

A majority of people who saw this said that it is the BEST Spider-Man film, so please people, put some respect on this incredible film and get it higher on this list.

This is the most unique Marvel movie because it is animated and there is multiverses and actually meet together

How is this so LOW! Best Spider-Man movie.

Best Marvel Movie.

24 Thor: Ragnarok Thor: Ragnarok Product Image

My favourite Marvel movie because it's so funny! It's not extremely serious like the other movies, the jokes are so great and Banner and Thor are great together! Definitely my favourite Marvel movie.

Awesome super india loves thor

This is the best superhero movie ever...

Definitely in the top five

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

I consider this film to be a slight step beneath the first film, only because it fails to add anything to the first film's formula. It's more of the same, and that makes it good, not great.

This is by far one of the best Marvel movies I've ever seen. It was emotional and had a decent plot. SPOILER, it was pretty heart wrenching when Yandu died. That scene hit me hard. And let me just say, that's one of the best things to have in a movie.

If there's any movie that's amazing it's this it's one the greatest films of all time it deserves to be on this list and we will always remember youdu

Such a good movie
