Marvel movies have always been incredible, with remarkable action sequences, great cameos and unexpected puns. Well, I’m counting down the best scenes in each Marvel movie. These are not fully fledged fights or chases, but include that one three to seven second moment in each movie where the audience went “Whoa!”

First up...

Iron Man

This shot from Iron Man is no doubt the best moment in the movie. It shows the confident nature of Tony as he calmly demonstrates his powerful weaponry by blowing a tank into bits.

The Incredible Hulk

This scene from The Incredible Hulk is when Major Emil Blonsky receives a big kick from the mighty beast. Emil gets too close to Hulk against orders and then pays the mistake. This scene was unexpected and fun to watch.

Iron Man 2

Iron Man 2 didn’t present anything too special if we exclude the long fights. So I guess the best instant in the movie was when he puts on his portable suit – Mark V.


The parts of Thor movies we all like are the ones where Thor smashes something with his hammer. Especially when it's a giant frost monster whose mouth has been ruptured.

Captain America: The First Avenger

The death of Bucky was totally unexpected and awe-inspiring to watch.

The Avengers

The Hulk face to face against a Chitauri monster is probably the best shot in the whole MCU. From his transformation, to the epic punch, this scene was a masterwork.

Iron Man 3

I don’t recall any short unexpected scene in Iron Man 3, however the part where Tony rescues the passengers was breathtaking.

Thor: The Dark World

Yup, definitely the smashing shots.

Captain America: Winter Soldier

Captain America: Winter Soldier was a great movie to watch and had plenty of cool fights in it. Perhaps the best fight was the one on the highway. And from the fight, the dagger combat is the best moment in my view.

Guardians of the Galaxy

Groot in action was startling in this shot. This scene managed to show Groot’s immense strength and at the same time, his humorous personality. The smile in the end nailed it.

Avengers: Age of Ultron

The best scene from Age of Ultron was when Vision hands Thor his hammer. No one expected such a twist and was absolutely astonishing.


The approaching Thomas the Tank Engine got me really inquisitive about what would happen next. This scene was amusing to watch in the most recently released MCU movie.
