The time has come, over the past 23 weeks I have re-watched the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe from the very beginning in 2008 with the one that kicked it off: Iron-Man to the epilogue of phase three that is Spider-Man: Far from Home. Keep in mind this is completely and utterly subjective – you will most likely have a vastly different opinion than me and that is what makes the film community incredibly fun and engaging. I was lucky enough to be with the Marvel Cinematic Universe since its inception and watch it blossom before my very eyes; although I haven’t seen every single film in theaters (mostly just phase 1).
What Marvel Studios has done is special, there is no denying what an accomplishment this has turned out to be – it’s an unprecedented cinematic experience that no one can duplicate although many have tried. Everyone who made these films possible are first and foremost fans of these characters because otherwise the carefully crafted universe we have today wouldn’t exist. Actually, this all wouldn’t exist without the late Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko and countless others and we possibly cannot thank them enough for their imaginations and visions that brought these beautifully complex characters to life. So, without further ado, here is my ranking of the Marvel Cinematic Universe starting from the bottom:
23) Thor: The Dark World (2013)
22) Iron-Man 2 (2010)
21) The Incredible Hulk (2008)
20) Iron-Man 3 (2013)
19) Captain Marvel (2019)
18) Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
17) Thor (2011)
16) Ant-Man & the Wasp (2018)
15) Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 (2017)
14) Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)
13) Doctor Strange (2016)
12) Ant-Man (2015)
11) Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)
10) Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)
9) Black Panther (2018)
8) Avengers (2012)
7) Iron-Man (2008)
6) Captain America: Civil War (2016)
5) Thor: Ragnarok (2017)
4) Avengers: Endgame (2019)
3) Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
2) Avenger: Infinity War (2018)
1) Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
So much has been said about this saga already by me, I’m not sure what else there is to say. It’s been a big part of the film industry whether you’re a fan or not and has amassed billions of dollars in revenue and even an academy award nomination of Best Picture for Black Panther. It wasn’t easy ranking these films in this order and a lot of changes were made and films swapped so many spots. But this is it, my final, subjective ranking of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Who knows as I watch more, my opinion can change. All I know is, i’m excited to see the next 5-10 years now that all the Fox properties are owned by Disney. All films can be streamed on Disney Plus minus the 2 Spider-Man films.
So, tell me guys, have you seen The Infinity Saga in its entirety and if so, what do you think about it? Do you agree with my final ranking or disagree with me? What does your rank look like? Comment below or send me an email and let me know what you think.
