The 29th of April brings us 'Captain America: Civil War' and with that is the introduction of phase 3 for juggernauts Marvel. The film is my most anticipated for the whole of 2016 and I couldn't be more excited! The studio have already powered out 12 films in the first two phases that have reached critical fame and have been a huge success at the box office. There is a huge demand for the superhero genre and due to this, a schedule with 11 films set to come out by 2019. I feel that this is a good time to have a look back at the current films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and see just how good they were. So here's my list ranking the films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe from best to worst!
|The films excluding the TV show 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D' in the MCU|
8. Iron Man 3A slightly better addition to the Iron Man trilogy which needed picking up after the second addition. There are some great action scenes in this film and we see Stark really struggling to cope with anxiety as he becomes much more humane in this film. However there are some let downs, none bigger than the introduction of the famous Iron Man villain 'The Mandarin' which was a terrible decision to make. Iron Man 3 if done right could have been great but it really doesn't deliver to what many people expected. Still more than entertaining enough for casual viewing and worth watching if you're a fan of Downey Jr's performance as Iron Man.
Final Verdict = C+
6. Avengers: Age of Ultron
5. Ant Man
Final Verdict = B+
4. Iron Man
Final Verdict = A+
So there you have it! That concludes my list for the Marvel Cinematic Universe
in preparation for 'Captain America: Civil War' which I am so excited for! If you disagree with my list, feel free to let me know how you would rank the films in your opinion. Also where do you think 'Civil War' will fit in? Once again thank you reading, it is much appreciated!
