We are so close to the final MCU film of the year; Spider-Man: No Way Home! Marvel has been doing its best to keep a tight lid on what fans will see come December, but even the mighty MCU might be no match for the power of unfed twitter users!
New spoiler images have leaked and though I won’t show them here or mention what they reveal I WILL say that I am officially very much looking forward to the third installment in this Spidey franchise.
For now, I wanted to break down all the MCU films and how they fall from best to worst. Will this new Spidey film break the top ten? If these images are any indication then it’s safe to say there is a safe bet.
- Avengers: Endgame– I am curious as to how this movie will age over time. For right now, there is no doubt this is the greatest achievement of the MCU thus far. Will they ever be able to top it? The end of the current saga will just have to decide for us when the time comes.
2. Avengers: Infinity War- Part I of a nerd masterpiece. Excellent film with high stakes and a ton of fun.
3. Captain America: Civil War- I’m sensing an ensemble trend here… Though this is a Cap film I personally register it as an Avengers movie. The cast is huge and finds time to give everyone their moment while managing to bring it back to Steve Rogers and his mission to save Bucky. It was the first film in the MCU that proved you could have a crowded movie and still work because of the broader investment made throughout the connected universe. Brilliant.
4:Eternals– Put your guns down angry MCU fans! I’m sorry, art is subjective, and this is my favorite MCU property to date. I loved the cast, their performances, their powers, their costumes, and absolutely loved the broader conversation presented in the film. I WANT more Eternals in the future and hoping Feige doesn’t get scared off by the critic score.
5. Captain America: Winter Soldier- The most street level film of the MCU. Out of all the movies it is the one that feels the least like an MCU movie. It’s action packed, the tension is real, and everyone just knocks it out of the park.
6. Avengers:Age of Ultron- The Black Widow content did NOT age well from this movie. Yikes. That being said this movie gave me the Maximoff twins, the return the team that started it all, and was just an overall fun time at the movies.
7. Captain Marvel: I really just love the character. I love her powerset and I love how Brie Larson brings her to life. Yes, she’s cocky but why wouldn’t she be? She’s a powerhouse and she knows it! Not all female heroes have to rest their energy in passive embrace and love. Kick ass Captain Marvel!
8. Black Widow: This film found its way into the top ten for me mainly because of Florence Pugh’s performance. I just loved every second of her on screen. I know she’s here to stay and I’m ready for more.
9. Guardians of the Galaxy: I will never get over how an iconic soundtrack made an unknown comic property with a raccoon and a tree work. I just won’t. This was one of the most unique stories for the MCU and one of the first cosmic stories at that.
10. Shang Chi: Action scenes, check. great leads, check. Asian mythology, check. MCU mistake retcons, check. This movie was visually stunning and gave us a tip of the hat to some Dragonball Z style action. What’s not to love?

14. Spiderman Homecoming

16. Spiderman Far From Home
18. Doctor Strange
