Top 10 Worst Marvel Cinematic Universe Films

The Top Ten Worst Marvel Cinematic Universe Films

1 Thor: The Dark World

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

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

What even happened in this movie?

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

stupid - sonictiger

This movie is so goood

it suck

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

Honestly my main problem with this film is Tony because until the end, Tony is treating the iron man suit like a toy.

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

WHAt! This was great! - Gangem

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 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.

You can argue that the actress has good intentions. But even so, she has proven to be serially rude off screen. She also has a bit of an arrogant streak. This all makes Larson a pretty unlikable addition to the MCU cast. But, even putting all of that aside going into the Captain Marvel movie, she gives an extremely flat performance in the film. You can kind of see that arrogant streak coming through in the delivery of certain lines, and a lot of the time she seems concerned with how "cool" her character looks. She goes for this very stoic bearing, even during a lot of moments of humor. She sort of cracks smirks, and makes clever quips with a very sarcastic tone of voice. Not very entertaining stuff, and actually a bit hard to watch at times. There were moments in the 2nd act when I thought the movie may save itself. But then the 3rd act shatters all of that with some very cringe inducing scenes. The movie goes full Mary Sue with this character, and it's very anticlimactic ...more

Actress ruined the film. A lot of what's included is what writers give advice to stray away from, such as things as: anti-climatic endings, characters with no weaknesses, main characters we don't have any care for throughout the entire film becausethey were hardly if not at all developed, and forcing a message down people's throats like a second bible (over feminism). It's really just bad modern feminist propaganda. CGI and music wasn't even that good, let alone the fight scenes. Every character aside from her had more interesting moments, with even less focus, that's what's so sad. Unless she's removed from the cast all together, I will not even consider glancing at the trailer let alone the movie, for the other 2 ahead for her.

Awful acting, story, and script. Such a shame

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

7 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

8 Ant-Man and the Wasp

Terrible. - B1ueNew

9 Captain America: The First Avenger

Worst film ever - wriddhak


10 Ant-Man

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

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

The Contenders

11 Avengers: Infinity War

What DINOLOVER that is why it was amazing! it had the nuts to have a big plot twist. - TheGrayDude55

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

12 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.

This film is too overrated.

Even Fortnite, Endgame and Batman Vs Superman Was 147 Billion Times Better than that Crap. Because They Rooted Spider-Man And it Makes No Sense When I First Heard they Put Spider-Man In the Movie I said Andrew Garfield is Going to be in this Film I am Thrilled But No it’s Tom Holland and He can’t Kill a villain unless he has a Person to help him out. Andrew Garfield Would Been in this Movie That Ripped off Batman Vs Superman by the way. I like Captain America as a Character and Marvel but This Movie Sucked.
Captain America Civil War < Fortnite
Batman Vs Superman > Captain America Civil War - Gtastic05

13 Spider-Man: Homecoming

I love this movie - sonictiger

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

14 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

15 Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

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

Not an Mcu film - Gangem

16 Black Panther

Worst CGI of any MCU film, constantly using vibranium to solve every problem (deus ex machina) and the villain is a caricature. Worst humour of the MCU without a doubt too. Lame!

Easily the worst.Bad cgi - BlackBoyBird

17 Iron Man
18 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
19 X-Men: The Last Stand

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

20 Punisher (2004)

Not MCU movie - CannabisCat420

Not a MCU flick

21 The Lord of the Rings (1978)

This list is ruined - PumpkinKing109

22 Marvel's The Avengers

I almost died when I heard their stupid argument.Loki sucked at being a villain,we almost saw Banner's dick,and everything looked extremely fake.I give this no stars at all! - bendyfazjazz234

23 Guardians of the Galaxy

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

24 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

25 The Wolverine

This movie isn't in the MCU?

26 The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Has too many deaths that could of easily been avoided

Again not in the Marvel cinematic universe - Gangem

27 Captain America: The Winter Soldier
28 X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Bad, but in the X Men films - Gangem

29 X-Men: Apocalypse
30 Fantastic Four

Not a MCU movie but still atrocious - BlazingParasol

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

Terrible but this isn't part of the MCU.

35 Elektra
36 Daredevil


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.

39 Avengers: Endgame
