Last year, much to the dismay of comic book movie fans, Marvel Studios decided not to attend San Diego Comic-Con. Instead, Marvel chose to show off what they had coming soon at Disney’s D23 Expo. Thankfully, this year it appears Marvel Studios won’t be sitting out the hype machine that is the biggest pop culture convention in the world.
Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson appears to be hinting that Marvel Studios is bringing a tease of this fall’s release of Doctor Strange to Comic-Con. In addition, a quick little exchange with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn seems to indicate that the cosmic Marvel sequel will also have a presence in San Diego.

I think we all like reading and watching interviews with legendary filmmakers discussing how they brought some of the most iconic movies to the big screen.

Last year, /Film ranked the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so that means we’re allowed to wait a few more years before we’re due for a full and proper refreshment. But with Captain America: Civil War currently in theaters, we decided we had to rank something. This is the internet and this what you do on the internet.
So we put our heads together and cast top secret votes to determine the greatest superheroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After winnowing down the list or eligible characters to thirty names (anti-heroes, power-less sidekicks, and villains were ineligible, as was the cast of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. since almost no one on the crew watches it), we each ranked the heroes in order of preference. Those ranked higher were given a certain number of points. Those ranked lower received fewer points. Any ties were decided by a second round of voting.
And this is what we got. Feel free to express your polite disagreements and passionate opinions in the comments below.
