Top 5 Marvel movies ranked from worst to best

Conventional critical wisdom holds that the floor and ceiling of the 14-year-strong Marvel Cinematic Universe aren’t that far off — that in devising a recipe for success, the company has managed to avoid any outright disasters, even Same as the principle of quality.

Even riskiness more or less negates the possibility of a true pop masterpiece of the genre. Still, as anyone who has sat through both the boring Iron Man or Thor sequels and the Oscar-winning zeitgeist phenomenon Black Panther can certainly attest, a range of quality remains within this franchise of franchises. That is to say, while every MCU movie has been a hit, they are not all created equal.

1. Elektra 

Electra was as good as one could expect from a spin-off of the Ben Affleck-starring Daredevil film. In the years since Electra’s release, Jennifer Garner has stated that she didn’t want to make the film at all and only agreed to do it out of a contractual obligation.

and producer Avi Arad admitted that Marvel didn’t want to release it. Haste for Along with Halle Berry’s Catwoman film, Electra is credited with delaying the success of female-oriented superhero films by more than a decade.

It would be awesome to see another Elektra movie starring Elodie Yung’s badass avatar of the character from Netflix’s Daredevil series.

2. Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel came to the MCU at an inappropriate time. Between Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, this ’90s tale takes a trip to Marvel’s past to introduce an important character and establish some space lore.

While the film, directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, is a little everywhere (seriously: it’s hard to miss many plot details without Wikipedia help),

it’s hard to argue that the MCU isn’t a better place with Carol Danvers in it. . Captain Marvel powered by the Tesseract is truly a force to be reckoned with.

3. The Amazing Spider-Man

Ten years after the premiere of Sam Raimi’s ‘Spider-Man’, Andrew Garfield returned to the screen to revive the franchise after the critical failure of Raimi’s ‘Spider-Man 3’.

The film sparked a heated debate among fans as to whether Garfield’s portrayal of a wall-crawler from NYC overtook Tobey Maguire’s turn in Raimi’s series of films.

The fight only got further complicated when Tom Holland entered the mix in 2016’s “Captain America: Civil War,” giving fans plenty to keep their Spidey-senses tingling.

4. Captain America: The First Avenger

Learn how Captain America (Chris Evans) got his shield! Steve Rogers is injected with the Super-Soldier Serum, becomes extremely muscular, and fights a Nazi offshoot organization called H.Y.D.R.A.

It was an early MCU film, and the franchise had yet to figure out how to introduce some of its older characters (in this case, literally: 95% of the film is set during World War II).

The end result is a bit clunky—and not quite—the CGI made for a shaky-looking “Skinny Steve.” On the bright side, this is one of the few MCU movies to feature a semi-decent romance.

5. The Incredible Hulk

We now know Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner/Hulk, but the second MCU film had Edward Norton in the role. Of all the MCU movies, “The Incredible Hulk” feels the least connected to the universe.

Liv Tyler’s Betty Ross, Banner’s love interest, never appeared again, and neither did Tim Blake Nelson, who was teased as the Hulk’s staunch leader. But even with all that tease, a sequel never happened.

and the only character other than the Hulk to have any meaningful connection to the MCU is General “Thunderbolt” Ross, played by William Hurt, who popped up again in 2016’s “Captain America: Civil.” Up happened. war.”
