Marvel Cinematic Universe Ranked

It’s become a tradition at this point: whenever a new entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is released, everyone ranks the movies. And now that everyone on the /Film staff has had a chance to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and spend a few days digesting it, it’s time to completely refresh our list.

We invited the site’s core staff as well as our various contributors to rank all 15 movies in the MCU, with each movie earning points based on its placement in each list. This resulted in a ranked list that reflects the site as a whole rather than the opinion of Just One Person. So here it is: the world’s most accurate ranking of Marvel Studios’ output.

Stan Lee

Greetings, true believers. There’s yet another Marvel Cinematic Universe film tearing up the box office – Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. As with all MCU films, there’s world-building, in-jokes, action, adventure, and of course, the prerequisite Stan Lee cameo. For more than 40 years now, Lee has been the most recognizable public face for Marvel properties, even the ones he had nothing directly to do with. Much like the Marvel post-credit sequence, a cameo from Lee is expected from fans; fans who will inevitably lean over to their theater mates and loudly whisper, “That’s Stan Lee!” when the moment arises. 

Because I’m committed to doing world-changing, issue-driven film writing, I’ve decided to rank every single Stan Lee cameo to date from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. For the sake of brevity I’ll only be dealing with the MCU films, and not the wealth of other Marvel-related films and TV projects, all of which Lee appears in one form or another. Excelsior!

guardians of the galaxy vol. 2 concept art

A few weeks ago, I sat down with Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige at the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 press junket, and we discussed a variety of things. We talked about how the Marvel tradition of post-credits scenes started, and how they are developed before, during and sometimes after filming. I also asked him about the lesson he learned working on You’ve Got Mail so many years ago (seriously!) and why he chose Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck to direct Captain Marvel. I also try to make some sense of the current chronology of the current Marvel films. All this and more below!

Avengers Infinity War Set Photo - Thanos

Earlier today, we reported how the full title of Avengers 4 is being kept under guard because it would spoil aspects of Avengers: Infinity War. Now, thanks to some loose lips during the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 press tour, that title may have just been revealed and it’s going to raise the eyebrow of many comic book fans…while meaning pretty much nothing to most civilians.

Update from editor Peter Sciretta: Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has debunked the title rumor, hit the jumo to find out what he said.

guardians in infinity war

One of my biggest fears about Avengers: Infinity War is that the film might be too big for its own good. With so many moving parts in Marvel Studios’ biggest movie yet, there’s a real danger of many of the characters we love getting lost in the shuffle and ending up without much to do.

But when I spoke with actor Chris Pratt yesterday during the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 junket in West Hollywood, I asked him about Infinity War and his comments about the Guardians’ involvement assuaged some of my fears.

Chris Evans leaving Marvel

After the fourth Avengers film, Chris Evans‘ contract with Marvel is done. Whether it’ll be the last we see of the actor as Captain America, we’ll have to wait and see. Over a year ago, when asked about starring in more movie Marvel films, Evans said, “If Marvel wants me they got me,” but it’s worth noting Marvel President Kevin Feige has teased these upcoming Avengers films as a new beginning of sorts.

While promoting his new film, Marc Webb’s Gifted, Evans talked about having to one day say goodbye to playing Steve Rogers. Below, check out his most recent comments on walking away at some point.
