In honor of Avengers: Age of Ultron (full review coming soon), I thought I would take this time to rank the previous films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The following are only the ones a part of the MCU, so no X-Men or previous Spider-Men.
-The best of the series. A magical and amazing superhero epic.
2. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
-I was shocked at how good this movie was. Blew me out of the water.
3. Iron Man
-This set the tone for all of the others and re-introduced us to the awesomeness of RDJ
4. Guardians of the Galaxy
-So surprised how much I liked this. Some of the most fun I've had in the theater in years.
5. Avengers: Age of Ultron
-A worthy successor to the best of the movies.
6. The Incredible Hulk
-An overlooked, exciting film
7. Iron Man 3
-What it lacked in awesome villainy, it made up for in coolness
8. Captain America: The First Avenger
-A bit hokey but a fun throwback
-A big, bold spectacle.
10. Thor: The Dark World
-Not as good as the first, but some great Loki scenes.
11. Iron Man 2
-It had its moments, but it did not live up to its potential.
