Ranking the Marvel movies


With the recent release of Ant-Man and the Wasp, Marvel Studios has now made 20 movies in their extended film universe. It took me a while to see both Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War but I’m finally caught up with the previous 19 movies (though I have no idea when I’ll get to see Ant-Man and the Wasp… kids ruin everything).

So, of course I thought I’d rank them. This is basically an off-the-cuff ranking, without any supporting comments, and if you ask me to rank them again tomorrow, I’d probably come up with a completely different order. But here it is all the same.

And this might be recency bias but it seems to me that the movies are getting better over time. I think all (well, maybe most) of them are good and basically any of them from the original Thor upwards, I’d be happy to watch again.

  1. Thor: Ragnarok
  2. Guardians of the Galaxy
  3. Ant-Man
  4. Avengers: Infinity War
  5. Captain America: Civil War
  6. Black Panther
  7. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
  8. The Avengers
  9. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
  10. Captain America: The First Avenger
  11. Spider-Man: Homecoming
  12. Doctor Strange
  13. Avengers: Age of Ultron
  14. Iron Man
  15. Thor
  16. Iron Man 2
  17. Thor: The Dark World
  18. Iron Man 3
  19. The Incredible Hulk
