With Avengers: Endgame nearing, here are my favorites Marvel movies so far.
I have to admit I haven’t seen ALL Marvel movies, like Ant-Man, Logan, or Captain Marvel, but this still turned out to be harder than I expected.
And these are my personal favorites.
1.) The Captain American Trilogy
Rather than taking up three different spots on the list, I decided to round them up, and take number one. The First Avenger was the first movie I watched in this new era of Marvel movies, but I’d put Winter Soldier as my favorite out of the three. It has two of my favorite couples, Steve and Peggy and Steve and Bucky, and I like watching Cap’s character grow.
And my crush on Chris Evans has nothing to do with this…
2.) The Avengers
I remember seeing this in theaters with my friends and loving every minute of it. Although I grew up watching X-Men and Spiderman, I wasn’t into superhero movies that much. This was the movie that changed it for me. It’s one of those I’ve seen a hundred times (I’m not exaggerating) and still enjoy it.
3.) Guardians of the Galaxy
My sister and I saw this in theaters and aftward I asked if she liked it and when she said, “It was okay,” I was shocked because I loved it. I love that it took place in a different galaxy with different races and they weren’t “typical heroes” but stole and killed to get where they are and in the end came together to save everyone.
4.) Thor: Ragnarok
I didn’t see this until AFTER Infinity War and I can’t believe it took me that long. I think it’s because I saw Thor: The Dark World in theaters and didn’t like most of it, so I decided to wait. I love the change in Thor’s character. It wasn’t much, I think he always had a humorous side but it wasn’t brought out enough.
Also, I don’t know how many times I would get frustrated with Thor’s powers. I always expected him to be more powerful and to see them come out in full force made me so happy.
5.) X-Men & X2
X-Men was my first introduction into the superhero world. I remember wanting to be a mutant so bad (I still do.) I even enjoy the second one. Sure, they have their moments whether it’s the CGI, stupid lines, or the characters come off too whiney (looking at you Cyclops) but that doesn’t matter in this post. Despite those moments, I still like (MOST OF) the characters. Even in The Last Stand, there were moments that were pretty good (not enough to make it on the list but still.)
6.) Black Panther
I love how different Black Panther is to other Marvel movies. I like the backstory of Wakanda and the characters, but what put it up there is the villain. I like that you understand his motives, even though extreme, he changed T’Challa’s mind in the end.
