Which ones the best? There have been a lot of films since 2008. 16 in total so far. With Thor Ragnarok coming out tomorrow at the time of writing this. The question isn't to comic book fans more to film fans. Which one do you think stands out and why?
Here's my short top 5 list
- In at number 1 is Iron man, yup the first film in the universe. It started it all. With the action and comedy its really a great starting point for anyone that doesn't know anything about the Marvel world.
- Second will comes a surprise for most, Ant-man. A real surprise after all the director and writing change overs. The film is more of a comedy then serious action film which I like. Laughter is the key with me.
- Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 comes in third. I really really really didn't like Vol. 1, I don't know why but to me I thought it was boring and I didn't enjoy the characters. I wasn't going to give this one a viewing but I thought what the hell whats the worst that can happen. Well greatness happened. The story is deep the comedy is on point and the soundtrack is something you want in your music collection
- Spider-man Homecoming, finally a Spider-man film that can live up to the goods of Spiderman 2 by Sony. The thing is Sony own the rights so Marvel getting it back for a film or two is great. The film stands out from the other Spiderman films as they haven't done a origin and that works in the MCU. The story is fun, you get to learn more about him and how he's not like the other super heroes as he's just a kid.
- Iron man 3 carry's on from Avengers but brings out some great actors seeing as they've seen how well phase 1 had done they wanted to get involved. Ben Kingsley and Guy Pearce are brilliant as the bad guys. The story helps develop Iron man even more and it does it very well.
What I'd suggest if you've not seen them is start at the beginning, watch all 17 in order, so you understand the stories and don't go "who's that" "why's that guy green?" "Wait he's a god?" if you're not into comic books these films might change your mind
