Right, now that we have been given the tenth Marvel film (from the Cinematic Universe, forget about Spiderman and X-Men) it’s time to rank them.
10. Thor: The Dark World (2013)
Now, I wasn’t a massive fan of either of the Thor films. I mean they are good films, but compared to the rest of the Marvel films, they are just very lacking with regards to story and drama. And the romance between Thor and Jane is really forced, worse so in this one. Plus Malekith is really boring enemy. However Loki is fun as always.
9. Iron Man 2 (2010)
I love Iron Man. I love the Iron Man films. But this is the weakest. Again, with a boring enemy, not a brilliant story and Stark at his least likeable.
8. Thor (2011)
Not really surprised. Just didn’t enjoy it as much as the rest. The story of this film just felt like it was made to support the Avengers. It didn’t really stand on it’s own two feet. However it had a fantastic opening scene on Asgard, that I loved.
7. The Incredible Hulk (2008)
Am really sad to put this one here but the remaining films are all amazing in their own respects and this doesn’t exceed them. This does surpass the previous Hulk film and Edward Norton was a brilliant Bruce Banner, but again, just a not very interesting villain.
6. Iron Man 3 (2013)
Right now on to the big stuff. Brilliant film with a touching “tortured hero” story but come on! That ending. Really? You would not destroy all of your suits man.
5. Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)
Finally, a decent Captain America film. With the Red Skull as well! Completely nerded out with this film. Loved the setting, loved the story, and the best portrayal of the Cap we have seen.
4. Iron Man (2008)
This set the benchmark and what a high benchmark. It captured the character perfectly in a modern day setting. Loved it!
3. Avengers (2012)
Biggest nerd moment in cinema. No more needs to be said, just not as good as…
2. Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
Want a superhero themed espionage film, well here it is. Extremely compelling and very clever.
1. Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
You must’ve seen this coming. I love space operas and this does not disappoint. Get film with a kick ass soundtrack. More to follow in my review.
