Every MCU Film, Ranked From High Tier To Low Tier

I did say, once, that I would be doing a ranking of all the Marvel Cinematic Universe films and here it is! My official ranking of them all, is in tier listing, cause there are too many for a traditional ranking list. Disclaimer: This is MY LIST!!! Yours may be different, and that’s ok!

Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The movie that made casual fans respect Steve Rogers. The Russo Bros knocked it out of the park with this one. The best “spy” movie that come out that year.

Spider-Man: No Way Home. Well, the third time is the charm. Y’all know I don’t vibe with the first two Spidey films under the Mouse’s direction. But this one…this movie nails what it truly means to be Spider-Man.

Black Panther A stellar cast, an antagonist with credible beef, and a soundtrack that’s still fire, Black Panther is GOAT’ed.

Avengers: Infinity War. The movie that left millions of viewers stunned. Thanos won. How rare is it, when not only the heroes lose, but the villain can bask in his victory in the film?!

Guardians Of The Galaxy 1 & 2. While I didn’t know it at the time, the Guardians films incorporate what I wanted in these films; color that popped, a cool soundtrack, humor that didn’t suck, and a strong sense of family.


·

Iron Man 1 & 2. Both films blend practical effects with CGI and introduce new characters to the then-infant universe.

Thor. Yup. The first Thor movie made it this high, argue with the wall. Comedy is cool, but not at the expense of sacrificing character development. And that’s what brings Thor so high. An arrogant warrior turned hero.

Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings. With some of the best fight scenes in the MCU, Michelle Yeoh and Andy Lao bringing the heat, and Simu Liu throwing hands, Shang Chi is fire.

Avengers Endgame. A lot of fanservice

went to making this film. Most of it was great (Cap wielding Miljner against Thanos, all the heroes coming back in an epic battle. Peak Marvel, right here.

Captain America:Civil War. When sides are chosen, sparks fly. With the introduction of Black Panther and Spider-Man, Civil War still poses a good question; who was right, Cap or Iron Man?

The Incredible Hulk. Now hear me out, this Hulk movie is not only a love letter to the television show, with Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno, but it shows how much pressure Bruce Banner is in as he tries to contain the beast within. Plus, we got a Hulk that doesn’t look like Shrek, and that final fight was epic.

The Avengers. Not saying this movie was bad, or anything. But upon rewatching, it’s just…good. Like day-old pizza that still tastes good, but not as good as your first ate it.. The team coming together was classic.






·

Doctor Strange. While the visuals were trippy, it slowly became more of the same fanfare with Marvel.







·

Age of Ultron. Again, not terrible, but not great. We did see more teamwork, though. And while hints of future movies are nice, and the addition of Scarlet Witch was a great investment, Ultron’s age didn’t seem to last.

long. The What If cartoon show did him better justice.

Captain America: The First Avenger. While not as thrilling as the latter two, First Avenger does a good job at giving an origin story, while explaining why Steve was chosen. To be a good man, not a perfect soldier.

Iron Man 3. The trailers deceived us, with the “Mandarin” fake-out. RDJ carried this film with his comedic charm, but other than that, a skippable sequel.
