Here is my ranking of Marvel films that have been released over the last 15 years. Remember this is just my personal opinion. I’m curious to see how others would rank these films. I didn’t include anything from Fox or Sony. Bravo Disney for acquiring the rights to the X-Men and I guess The Fantastic Four.
20. Hulk, 2003: I don’t know if this can count? I only saw it on cable, once, and I don’t think this is considered a part of the MCU, whereas Edward Norton’s version is.
19. Captain America: The First Avenger, 2011: This was a snooze fest. I’ve watched it only twice, the first time, not really watching but more along the lines of napping. We did not see this in theaters, it was a rental at home.
18. The Incredible Hulk, 2008: Better than the 2003 version, but I get annoyed at reboots. I can remember when and where I saw this film. My husband and I had just gotten married. We waited until the 4th of July holiday to watch it.
17. Thor: The Dark World, 2013: This was bad, definitely worse than the original. It felt very rushed.
16. Iron Man 3, 2013: I wish Iron Man’s final solo outing could have been better.
15. Thor, 2011: Thor’s first outing was really bad, sorry Kenneth Branagh, nice try though. There were some funny parts to it, but I just didn’t care for the character, The God of Thunder with long hair and a hammer. He was nice to look at though.
14. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, 2017: I thought it was ok, not a favorite, but not bad enough to be at the bottom. Mantis was a great addition. The scenes with Drax and Mantis are the best.
13. Iron Man 2, 2010: Just ok.
12. Avengers: Age of Ultron, 2015: I felt it was just another rushed film and I was a little lost. Those damn infinity stones!!
11. Captain America: The Winter Soldier, 2014: This was a much better movie!
10. Spider-Man: Homecoming, 2017: I hope Marvel gets to keep the rights for this film. Sony did a horrible job with the reboot and should have left the films alone. He should be called Spider-Boy, not Spider-Man.
9. Guardians of the Galaxy, 2014: Chris Pratt and Dave Bautista are really funny, the end.
8. Iron Man, 2008: The movie that started it all.
7. The Avengers, 2012: I really enjoyed this movie, but there are so many more that I love. It was a fun.
6. Ant-Man, 2015: I love Paul Rudd. I really thought the movie was going to be stupid, but I was wrong. It was good.
5. The Avengers: Infinity War, 2018: I can’t wait to see how this ends and bravo for bringing Nick Fury back! P.S. I saw him at LAX on my way to Chicago. I forbade my husband from yelling something out to him. We had to keep our cool.
4. Doctor Strange, 2016: Come on guys, I’m waiting patiently for a sequel. I LOVED the special effects!!
3. Black Panther, 2018: I think the hype ruined it for me. Sorry, as much as I LOVE Chadwick Boseman, and I think Black Panther is awesome, I didn’t love the movie.
2. Captain America: Civil War, 2016: I loved this movie!! It was like The Avengers: Infinity War Jr. This was the best of the three and one of my favorite Marvel films! Captain America Civil War
1. Thor: Ragnarok, 2017: This is still my favorite Marvel movie!! I wrote a review a few months back, so I won’t say anything more here. Thor Ragnarok
So here is my ranking of the MCU. I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us next!
