An Unconventional Ranking Of The MCU Movies

11. Iron Man (2008)

The daddy of the MCU is often put right at the top of MCU rankings. For me, it’s a very entertaining origins story, and gave us the gift of Downey’s Tony Stark, but, again, it lacks that extra special something that characterized many future installments of the franchise.


10. Thor: Ragnarok (2017)

Thor: Ragnarok managed to be a marked improvement on its predecessors by turning the franchise into a broad cosmic comedy – sure, Guardians of the Galaxy did that first but it’s still a humongous amount of fun with a brilliant cast of characters.


9. Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)

As a diehard Spider-Man fan, I don’t know how I feel about certain storytelling choices in Homecoming (no mention of Uncle Ben? Really?), but the film itself is such a blast of a coming-of-age superhero movie that any criticisms fly out your head while watching.


8. Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)

The Russos made their MCU debut with this one and found success with their winning character-driven, more realistic approach to the Marvel universe from the off. The Winter Soldier is a taught 70s-style thriller that reinvents Captain America in a fascinating way.
