The Ark-La-Tex’s Favorite Marvel Movies From the MCU: Ranks 11-7
Avengers fever is spreading like crazy. We're just a couple weeks away from Avengers: Endgame hitting theaters, and destroying every box office record that exists. The advanced ticket sales have already set a ton of records, and took down a few sites and apps along the way.
So a couple weeks ago, we asked what our area's favorite Marvel movies from the MCU were. Now the votes are counted, and we're ready to reveal the results...
This list is big, so we're going to break it up into multiple posts. We will link them altogether though, so you can see the entire list. We're going to start now with movies #11-#7:
11. Doctor Strange (2016)
One of the better MCU origin stories, Doctor Strange was a little different than a lot of the MCU films, but in a good way. The way the film has fit into the movies that came after it, might have given it a little more of a positive response in hindsight.
10. Thor (2011)
If you got back and watch this, without thinking about what you know now, this was amazing. This was our first look at the MCU off Earth, and at this point, we started to get the idea of what The Avengers would be like, and remember who incredible that idea was when it first hit. So good.
9. Iron Man (2008)
The one that started it all. The original MCU film set the tone for the next decade of Marvel movies. Robert Downey, Jr was the perfect Tony Stark, the cave-build of Iron Man was such a great nod to the original comics, and Jeff Bridges.
8. Captain America: Civil War (2016)
Now we're getting into the meat of the MCU. The strength of the MCU movies really comes through when the characters start intertwining. When we finally get to not only see the teams form, then we get to see them fight...the airport fight scene is one of the absolute high points of the whole MCU.
7. Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
Cap is maybe the strongest thread across the MCU...a lot of people will argue it's Tony Stark. But let's be real, at the end of Cap's first movie, when he delivers the "...I had a date" line, that was game changing. Then Cap kept growing as a character, and this movie might have had the most growth for him across the whole MCU.
