Marvel Cinematic Universe Movies Ranked
Here's our ranking of the MCU movies!
This is probably the most fun you'll have at a Marvel movie. It balances heart and humor very well and introduces characters you care about. However, there's still a lame villain and some of the supporting cast can be overused at times leaving you wanting more. The action sequences use his shrinking abilities very creatively and the visual effects are a big part of that. It's certainly funny, but the comedy can be overdone at times. This is still a good movie, though.
12. Captain America: The First Avenger
A throwback to classic WWII adventure movies, Joe Johnston delivers a knock-out of a movie here in one of the best origin stories so far. Chris Evans nails the role of Captain America bringing boyish innocence and charm to the role along with a real fighting spirit. The supporting cast is good here too even if they can be a bit underused, and the villain is one of the more memorable and terrifying. However, this is a bit of missed opportunity to say more about war and the effect it has on people. Regardless, this one stands apart from the MCU, in not only its setting, but also in it's morally upright lead character.
Kenneth Branagh's take on Shakespearean superhero Thor is a wonderful introduction to the god of thunder. Bringing audiences a character they can root for, Chris Hemsworth gives the titular hero an amazing arc. The action scenes and visual effects only help tell this story. Tom Hiddlston, of course, also introduces us to the villain Loki here who is still one of the most compelling characters in the entire MCU. While the supporting cast sometimes leaves a bit to be desired, there's still plenty of fun mixed in with the drama to satisfy all moviegoers.
10. Avengers: Age of Ultron
The sequel to the mega-hit The Avengers is a bit of a mess. However, the good far outweighs the bad . James Spader is outstanding in the role of Ultron who's the best and most complex villain we've had since Loki. Hawkeye's storyline is the reason to watch though, giving us more insight on the most underused and overlooked Avenger. Never has action been more compelling or effects looked better in the MCU movies and it all helps tell the story. These characters are developed further and their relationships progress in surprising ways.
