Top 10 Worst Marvel Cinematic Universe Films


The Top Ten

1 Thor: The Dark World

I liked this one for the 20 minutes of Loki making jokes that we got

What even happened in this movie?

This is the only MCU movie that I think is bad.

What I never understood was what is so wrong with this Film. I mean it’s defin not one of my favorites but I don’t hate it either. In fact, the Incredible Hulk ranks my list of the worst marvel movie yet

2 The Incredible Hulk

This movie was so damn boring

I love his movie shame on you

This should be number 1 - shiftaltkey

This movie will not hinder your MCU knowledge if you don't watch it, because it was made just to introduce Bruce Banner and that's all.

3 Iron Man 2

WHAt! This was great! - Gangem

According to collider iron man 2 is in bottom at list, sadly terrance howard left, even oring bad contents - toshdeluxe

As much as I love MCU, this is the worst. - asantalo

4 Iron Man 3

This is Director/Writer Shane Black at his worst. Using His Usual cliche Action Picture writing For this 3rd installment. For Action/Sci fi fans the best movie of the MCU.
For Hardcore Comic Book fans,Iron man Fans and Mandarin fans, Pass this one immediately

5 Thor

I actually thought this one was ok when I first saw it. 3/5-Not Bad. - shiftaltkey

Terrible - Gangem

6 Avengers: Age of Ultron

The villain was better than most MCU films, but his motivations still didn't make sense at all. Could've done way better with this film. - shiftaltkey

It would've been waaay better without that stupid Hulk/Black Widow romance - PineconeFace


7 Ant-Man and the Wasp

Terrible. - B1ueNew

8 Captain America: The First Avenger

Worst film ever - wriddhak


9 Ant-Man

This movie was awesome, so why is ant man on this list!?!?!

This movie should be number 2 or 3 for worst MCU film. - shiftaltkey

10 Avengers: Infinity War

Worst because almost all heroes die and the evil Thanos won, just like any bad/alternate endings of many movies. - DinoLover4242

The Contenders

11 Doctor Strange

How? This film was great and had plenty of quips, humour, action, and trippy weird stuff to go along with it. This should be lower than first avenger. 4/5-Good movie. - shiftaltkey

12 Spider-Man: Homecoming

They got nothing right about Spider-Man: he didn't have spider senses, he only fought crime because he wanted to be an Avenger... because screw Uncle ben. The ruined MJ and The Shocker. And this Spider-Man has NO consequences (he ditched detention, he ditched the science team, he blew up a sandwich shop... and everything just happened to be fine). This movie got NOTHING right

13 Captain America: Civil War

Avengers Civil War would have been great, but instead you have Iron Man and Captain America standing up for what those characters would never think is right. Just because of a tiny argument these people are using lethal weapons against each other. Really poor story 5/10. (And yes I love marvel so much that 5/10 is the worst) - CannabisCat420

Civil sucked. The worst movie of marvel. Bad plot, low pacing, underdeveloped characters and boring. Captain America is the worst hero ever and Iron Man sucked. The worst was Spideyboy. He is so annoying. I bet Homecoming will suck big time. Blank Panther was only the best part of movie.

14 Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

This isn't an MCU film... - shiftaltkey

Not an Mcu film - Gangem

15 Captain Marvel Captain Marvel Carol Susan Jane Danvers, or Captain Marvel, is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by writer Roy Thomas and artist Gene Colan, Danvers first appeared as an officer in the United States Air Force and a colleague of the Kree superhero Mar-Vell in more.

From the amount of hate I'm hearing about this movie it should be in the top 10.

This movie is boring - Dvafan2

16 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
17 Punisher (2004)

Not a MCU flick

Not MCU movie - CannabisCat420

18 Iron Man
19 Marvel's The Avengers
20 Guardians of the Galaxy

All the other MCU movies were amazing. This one is just kinda mediocre - Shake_n_Bake13

21 Spider-Man 3

Howard the Duck may be the worst objectively, but this one just grated on my nerves more.
Bottom 5:
5-Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
4-X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)
3-Fantastic Four (2015)
2-Howard the Duck (1986)
1-Spider-Man 3 (2007)

"cinematic universe"

Not MCU - Gangem

22 The Wolverine

This movie isn't in the MCU?

23 The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Has too many deaths that could of easily been avoided

Again not in the Marvel cinematic universe - Gangem

24 Captain America: The Winter Soldier
25 X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Bad, but in the X Men films - Gangem

26 X-Men: The Last Stand

Pretty much every film after this aren't MCU fims - Gangem

27 X-Men: Apocalypse
28 Fantastic Four

Not a MCU movie but still atrocious - BlazingParasol

29 Ghost Rider
30 Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer
31 Fantastic Four (2005)
32 Howard the Duck
33 Elektra
34 Daredevil


35 The Lord of the Rings (1978)

This list is ruined - PumpkinKing109

36 Black Panther

Easily the worst.Bad cgi - BlackBoyBird

37 3 Dev Adam
38 Fantastic Four (1994)

I'm guessing this wasn't in the top ten because no one knows what it is. Go read I-Mockery's review of it. If that doesn't persuade you that this is the worst by FAR, I will eat a shoe.

Easily one of the worst.
