When Marvel first pitched their idea for an Avengers movie franchise way back in 2008, they were met with much skepticism. Fortunately for them and for the fans, we now have thirteen fun films with plenty more on the way. Everything is connected, and that only makes the experience even better.
Starting with the "invincible" Iron Man himself, the critical success and performance of the movie fully facilitated more movies in the same universe to be made. But that's all one big history lesson, and you're not here for history.
We've got thirteen movies to sink our teeth into over the past eight years, and there's tons of debate over which of them reigns supreme. Is it that box office behemoth The Avengers? The quirky but lovable Guardians of the Galaxy? Well, a lot of that depends on what you define as a good film as well as what appeals to you the most.
For this list, I'm ranking movies based on critical acclaim, lasting impressions, and fan response, as well as a few of my own opinions as to what makes a movie good. This list is by no means a measure of fact. Seeing as a lot of these types of lists are subjective, you're welcome to agree or disagree. This is all just for good fun, after all. Now that we've got that out of the way, here are our rankings of the MCU films, ranked from worst to best.
13 Iron Man 2
12 The Incredible Hulk
10 Iron Man 3
9 Thor: The Dark World
8 Captain America: The First Avenger
7 Avengers: Age of Ultron
5 The Avengers
4 Iron Man
3 Captain America: Civil War
2 Guardians of the Galaxy
1 Captain America: Winter Soldier
Taking the top spot is Captain America: Winter Soldier. It excels in pretty much every aspect you can think of. It is excellently paced, well-acted, has amazing action... the list goes on and on. It was a vast improvement over the first Captain America, but still had plenty of ties to Cap's World War II adventures. The reveal that HYDRA had been infiltrating SHIELD all this time was shocking and amped up the tension to an eleven. We saw a different Captain America than what we saw in the Avengers. Then there's the introduction of Falcon and Winter Soldier, which set up for some truly inspiring action. It's no wonder that Marvel had the directors of this film produce Civil War. My hat goes off to you, Russo Brothers.
