In celebration of Captain America: Civil War, I thought it'd be a great time to celebrate Marvel's funniest characters throughout the years. Almost everyone will find certain things funnier than others and that certainly rings true for Marvel's MCU.

Some people will like Tony Stark more than Scott Lang and vice versa. There are no wrong answers when someone asks you 'Who do you think is the funniest person in Civil War?' I hope you enjoy the list and so, here we go:


He just made his debut and thankfully; it was something memorable. I thought he was perfectly cast and absolutely hilarious! When he jumped on Falcon and acted like he was going to arrest him -- had me roaring with laughter! Also, when Bucky threw a sign at him and he threw back a witty retort along with the sign (priceless).

Spidey's home and I think we're all grateful! I'm sure I'm not the only one super-excited for his upcoming solo movie! Lastly, he'd be higher on this list with a little more screen time (I'm not complaining).


What a pleasant surprise Guardians of the Galaxy turned out to be! Drax was easily one of the highlights, well, they all were amazing in Gunn's first outing in the Marvel Universe. I can't pick my favorite line in the movie, but his entrance comes close when he was talking about a finger to the throat.


He's Marvel's best villain and also, one of their most interesting characters. The-would-be-king of Asgard had made us laugh on numerous occassions. My favorite moment has to be from Thor: The Dark World. I loved when he was changing from character-to-character and became Captain America. He does have a point about how tight of an outfit Cap's suit from The Avengers was!


Sam Wilson is one of Cap's best friends in Marvel's MCU. In Civil War, he and Bucky are outright hilarious in a couple of different moments. The car scene is perfectly timed, but my favorite is when Spider-Man webbed them to the floor. Sam finally got Redwing involved and Bucky made a snarky comment, with Sam following it with 'I hate you'. I'm not sure why I found it so funny, but I did!


Do I really need to explain this one? When Rocket was introduced in GotG, he made a comment about how it's embarrassing that a toddler need help walking (something like that). I was sold that moment and there were many more to follow. I'm glad he called Drax, bat-s*it crazy during their drunk scene and made fun of The Collector's mannerisms. I just found him to be completely awesome!


Tony Stark has made so many dick jokes in the prestigious Marvel's MCU that I lost count. RDJ gives powerhouse-after-powerhouse performances as Iron Man. I might not always agree with outlook, but that doesn't stop me from laughing at almost everything he says. Even though in Civil War, he's a great deal more serious than in previous outings -- he still manages to make us laugh throughout the movie. My favorite joke had to be when he's talking about a certain zucchini in Avengers: Age of Ultron.


Paul Rudd is the most like-able person in Hollywood and that definitely carried over into the MCU. We've all seen his solo movie, but he shines in Captain America. His and Stark's interaction when he was fun-size was easily one of the funniest moments in the movie. I loved after he got done doing what he did and he asked for some orange slices as well. I'm not sure why I thought this was so funny, but once again, I did!


My apologies, if you didn't find your funniest character on this list. Comedy is subjective and this is an opinion piece, but I honestly would love to hear the person you think is the most hilarious in the comments section. Civil War is a grand movie and it has everything that we love about a Marvel movie in it as well! I hope you enjoy this list and have a great time seeing Captain America: Civil War.
