The Films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Ranked, 2016 Catch Up Edition

We’re continuing to shake off the dust around here at Awesome Friday HQ, and one easy way to do that is to update the Marvel Fanboy Marvel Cinematic Universe Rankings. Last year there were two additions to the canon of films, Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange. Each were good, but where do they fit? Let’s take a look.

Last time I did this I grouped the films into three categories, this time I’m doing a straight up ranking. Feel free to agree or disagree with me. In fact, I encourage it.

Now let’s get to it.

Marvel Announced Ant-Man Sequel, ‘Ant-Man and The Wasp’, for 2018 + 3 New Movies for 2020

Paul Rudd + Evangeline Lily

Holy crap, Marvel has updated their film schedule again with a sequel to Ant-Man titled Ant-Man and The Wasp. This will be the second film with a heroine’s name in the title (Captain Marvel has been rescheduled, more on that in a moment) which is a good thing. This also makes 2017, 18, 19, and 20 all 3 Marvel movie years, which is nuts.

The Films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Ranked, Ant-Man Edition

Editorial / Comments Off on The Films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Ranked, Ant-Man Edition

Marvel

It’s been a while since I made one of these lists! There have been two new Marvel films since last time so it’s time to see where they fit into the mix. I rewatched all the Marvel films in the lead up to Avengers: Age of Ultron so the films are still pretty fresh in the mind.

While the movies here are ranked from worst to best, I’m also grouping them into three categories: The ok ones, the good ones, and the great ones. If you’re wondering why there’s no “bad” category it’s both because I still enjoy the “ok” ones and because I can still appreciate the bad ones for the development of characters, story, and themes that run through the entire MCU (even if they’re pretty thin at times). Also also, it’s an exercise in being less negative.

Anyway, let’s get on with this.

Hooray! Ant-Man Trailer Looks Legitimately Good!

Trailers / Comments Off on Hooray! Ant-Man Trailer Looks Legitimately Good!

Ant-Man / Paul Rudd

There’s a shiny new full trailer for Ant-Man and it looks really good!

Fair warning, this trailer feels like it gives away from plot details. That being said so do most Marvel trailers and they’ve basically all been pretty misleading about what the real story is. You call. Don’t say I never warned you.

The State of the Universe: The Current State of, and Speculation on What’s To Come In, The Marvel Cinematic Universe **Updated**

Posted by Matthew on April 05, 2014

Marvel

I’ve been thinking a lot about the Marvel Cinematic Universe lately. There has been nine feature films to date as well as five short films and sixteen episodes (out of twenty-two) of the television series Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. That’s a lot of storytelling right there so as much for my own benefit as for yours I’m going to run down the current state of the universe as it stands right now, immediately post Captain America: The Winter Soldier and after episode 16 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., as I see it and offer some speculation as to where things are going.

This is obviously going to contain spoilers for, well, everything in the MCU so far so my recommendation is to get caught up before you read this. Either that or no complaining. I’m also making predictions about what I think is going to happen moving forward so if I’m right, and I all but know that I am about one thing in particular, then consider this your spoiler warning.

Also go get yourself a cup of coffee or something because this is going to take a while.

Ok? Ok. Let’s do this.
