Hey, Moviepilot, Kaleb here again. So after ranking all 20 DC movies, I've decided to show equality and rank all 38 Marvel movies (as of writing this). You're probably thinking that I have way too much time on my hands. But, rest assured, I do have a life outside of Moviepilot as well. Thanks for the concern. As always, this is an opinion article. If you disagree, that's fine & if you agree, good. Let's try and keep the comments clean, ok? Now let's do this!
38. Iron Man 3 (2013)
Okay, right now a lot of you are raging and about to click away. It's no secret that I hated Iron Man 3. The reason was the plot was so bad. Iron Man 3 basically tried to rip off the basic plot of The Incredibles. The Mandarin twist was the really huge reason as to why this movie was big let down. The post-credit scene was also very disappointing.
37. X-Men: The Last Stand (2006)
The plot is cluttered. The directing is poor. The film introduces too many new characters. The film kills off major characters that serve no purpose to the story except to show the Jean is psychotic.
36. Elektra (2005)
This film should've been much better, but the action, acting & even plot just fall apart. There were no references to its "predecessor" Daredevil. There was so much wrong with this film that I could go one for just about forever. Moving on...
35. Fantastic Four (2005)
2005 was a very bad year for Marvel fans. While Fantastic Four wasn't the worst movie ever, it's very slow pacing and cheesiness just ruined this film for me. The casting was spot on, but The Thing's costume was all wonky. The sequel was better.
34. Blade: Trinity (2004)
I didn't like this film, because of the pacing. Ryan Reynolds did an ok job in the film. By this time, really, I was just sick of Blade. Blade II was good, but Trinity just failed to deliver.
33. Howard The Duck (1986)
I'm writing this film off on the fact that it NEVER should have been MADE. The duck looks so weird and the plot just kinda sucks. Sorry to all the Howard The Duck fans.
32. Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2011)
Both Ghost Riders suck, but this film especially. We didn't need nor want a sequel. The plot is bad and the acting just sucks. The directors were bad, but it's more a script error.
31. Man-Thing (2005)
The picture speaks for itself. The plot is bad. The characters are terrible. The acting is god-awful. I refuse to acknowledge its existence further.
30. Ghost Rider (2007)
Like the sequel, the original is just a tick better. The director is semi-decent, the error is found in acting this time round, however. The plot isn't the best either.
29. Spider-Man 3 (2007)
Alright, so maybe the years 2005-2007 were VERY bad for Marvel fans. Spider-Man 3 is a huge disappointment coming off of Spider-Man 2. With a very cluttered story, too many villains, and odd plot changes, the film is very bad.
28. Punisher: War Zone (2008)
I didn't like War Zone's story as much as The Punisher (2004). The acting was decent, but I personally just didn't like this movie.
27. Hulk (2003)
This film suffered from bad SFX and bad acting. The plot line is rough at best, and the direction is just off. Bad film.
26. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)
This made the exact same mistakes as Spider-Man 3. The only saving grace is the chemistry between Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone. They are an adorable couple.
25. Blade (1998)
This film isn't necessarily bad, it's just not the best. I attribute it to the stinky direction but Blade isn't the worst Marvel has to offer.
24. Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007)
Now this film was much better than the original. However, they screwed Galactus up very badly. I liked this film, but the story is a little cluttered.
23. Blade II (2002)
This is the best of the Blade films because of the director and writers were on the same page, through and through and the villains were spot-on for a cinematic Blade.
22. Daredevil (2003)
Believe it or not, I'm in the vast minority who actually enjoyed Daredevil. Ben Affleck wasn't very good in this film, but it's more so the writing than his acting.
21. Thor: The Dark World (2013)
The only issue I have this film is pretty big issue. The villain is just so bad. He is very forgettable. In fact, I can't remember if Malekith died or not. I'm in the minority who remember his name. Without a strong villain, the movie falls apart.
20. Spider-Man (2002)
Tobey Maguire isn't a convincing high school Peter Parker. The Green Goblin costumes sucks. Otherwise, the film is pretty good. I enjoyed Spider-Man.
19. X2: X-Men United (2003)
I didn't care for this movie, but it's not the worst. I liked Nightcrawler. The plot was slow moving at times. The action is good.
18. Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)
I really liked this film, but there were better choices that I liked more than this, which is why this is very low on the all Marvel rankings. It's a very good film.
17. The Punisher (2004)
This is a good film. It's got a very smart story and excuses it very well. The acting is lacking, but I actually enjoyed The Punisher as it's a good action flick.
16. The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)
I personally felt that this was a much better representation of Spider-Man's origins. Andrew Garfield is a much better Spider-Man than Tobey Maguire. He really is good at the high school Parker. His chemistry with Emma Stone is undeniably perfect. I really liked TASM.
15. The Wolverine (2013)
I really liked The Wolverine. It's a very good solo outing for Hugh Jackman's Logan. The story is good and the action is fantastic.
14. Ant-Man (2015)
Ant-Man is straight-up fun for everyone. It's funny and has fantastic action. The acting is good. Michael Pena steals the show. It does something the MCU hasn't done since Iron Man, it makes the universe feel small and personal and like Phase 1 again. It's a breath of fresh air and I enjoyed it.
13. Iron Man 2 (2010)
Granted it feels boring at parts, I really enjoyed Iron Man 2. The action scenes are good and the story is good.
12. Thor (2011)
I really liked the story and message behind Thor. The plot was good, while the action wasn't all there. I enjoyed what action was shown.
11. Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
This film has great action and performances from everyone. It does a great job of changing the game for the MCU. It's a very smart film that I enjoyed greatly.
10. X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)
I found X-Men Origins to be a great thrill ride with a good story and great action. The only thing wrong with the film is how bad they screwed over Deadpool. Otherwise, a great film.
9. The Incredible Hulk (2008)
The only thing I didn't like with this film was Edward Norton. Otherwise, the action and story were great. That Tony Stark cameo was fantastic universe building.
8. The Avengers (2012)
I love The Avengers, however I like the rest of the films on my list more. I can't say anything bad about The Avengers.
7. Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
The action was fantastic and the story was good. Ultron is the most menacing, yet funny, villain Marvel has ever had. Ultron is my favorite MCU villain yet.
6. X-Men (2000)
There would be no Avengers or MCU without the success of X-Men. It's a great ensemble piece and is a great place to start in the new X-Universe.
5. Spider-Man 2 (2004)
I love this film because college Peter Parker is good for Tobey Maguire. The villains great, the action is great, and the story is brilliant.
4. X-Men: First Class (2011)
I love First Class. The story is excellent and the action is spectacular. Very good film.
3. Iron Man (2008)
This films fantastic action, story, especially acting! It's the beginning of the MCU and it's brilliant.
2. X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)
The film unites the two casts together and creates the X-Universe. Quicksilver steals the show and the story is brilliant. The direction is perfect and the casting is great. DoFP is brilliant.
1. Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
Chris Pratt and company present the best Marvel movie I've ever seen. The story is great, the action is beautiful, the comedy is tongue-in-cheek, & it features the best soundtrack ever found in a Marvel movie. This film is a classic and it's rightfully earned that honor.
