It is an exciting time to be a Marvel fan. First, there’s the upcoming release of the next Marvel Movie “Captain Marvel” on 08 March, 2019, and then the release of a new video game “Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order” on the Nintendo Switch platform, also during 2019.
The latest addition to the Marvel catalogue lets fans see Brie Larson starring in her first Captain Marvel movie, and that’s sure to open the door to some brand-new storylines and characters for the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase Four series.
All of Stan Lee’s superheroes, including the likes of Spiderman, the X-Men, the Avengers and Black Panther, are so popular that many comic books, toys, movies and even online casino games reflect the powerful influence of these characters.
So, just to whet everyone’s appetite, here’s a quick summary of the Top Ten best Marvel movies of all time:
1. Marvel’s ‘The Avengers’ (2012)
Featuring the debut appearance of a quintessential superhero team, this crossover movie still seems to have everything. Of course, the Avengers don’t get along with each other at first – which gives us some witty episodes – but when the Earth is threatened with invasion, they’re united and ready to do battle for New York. A classic superhero story and an action finale you won’t want to miss.

2. Black Panther (2018)
T’Challa (Black Panther) is due to inherit the crown of Wakanda, but his brother Erik Killmonger has other ideas. The story follows the struggle between them, which includes the threat of a global war. At first it looks like Killmonger will get his way, but T’Challa rallies his people and a battle ensues... A strong cast brings this gripping plot to life, and the movie is worth watching for its Afrofuturist set design alone.
3. Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
A tale of spies, evil intrigue and subversive Hydra infiltration, this tense storyline leaves Captain America and Black Widow feeling hunted, and features a frozen assassin used as a cryogenic weapon. There are some thrilling fight scenes involving highways, elevators and a some deadly Hydra Helicarriers to deal with just for good measure. This tale is complex and messy rather than black and white, so there’s plenty to keep you guessing.
4. Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
The story concerns a would-be petty theft which turns into a struggle to secure what is actually one of six ultra-powerful Infinity Stones. What’s unusual for this style of blockbuster is that the central characters include a talking raccoon and an animated tree, as well as the light-fingered thief. It’s certainly comic and witty, but when heavyweight villains like Drax, Ronan and Gamora become involved, there’s also evil and treachery to threaten the world.
5. Iron Man (2008)
Tony Stark’s transformation from a profiteering playboy weapons manufacturer to a clever and resourceful superhero is of course central to this Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. Captured by terrorists after his technology and weapons expertise, Stark uses his ingenuity to turn the tables, but now has a very different perspective on the world of weaponry. Once his metamorphosis is complete, we get to learn that he’s Iron Man – and nothing will ever be the same.
6. X2: X-Men United (2003)
A great comic-story adaptation full of non-stop action and charismatic performances, this tale kicks off with an attempted presidential assassination, and soon reveals the evil Stryker poses a serious threat to Wolverine and the rest of the X-Men. While their arch-enemy Magneto escapes from prison, the complex plot takes us to the stage where only an alliance between the X-Men and Magneto, their sworn enemy, will really be enough to combat Stryker’s villainy.
7. Thor: Ragnarok (2017)
Stranded and imprisoned with his brother Loki, the mighty Thor finds himself up against the Hulk, his fellow Avenger and former ally, in a deadly gladiatorial contest. The brothers finally escape and become embroiled in a frantic quest for survival to prevent their evil sister, the all-powerful Hela, destroying their home and the entire Asgardian civilization.
8. Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)
Fresh from his superhero role with the Avengers, the young Peter Parker returns to small town life with his Aunt May. With Tony Stark as his new mentor, Parker begins to develop his Spider-Man persona, but must also commit to his humdrum normal life. But life gets hectic again when Peter is faced with the threat of the evil Vulture. Along the way, the film also takes a light look at Peter’s high school social life.
9. Doctor Strange (2016)
In this fantasy movie with great visuals and a strong cast, famous brain surgeon Stephen Strange suffers a life-changing car accident which damages his hands. Searching for a cure for his condition, he encounters a mysterious Nepalese enclave where he is taught mystic arts. Soon, Dr. Strange has a choice to make: Does he return to his former life? Or does he stay to protect the world using his newly acquired magical forces?
10. Ant-Man (2015)
In this funny, understated story Scott Lang is an imprisoned master thief who eventually earns redemption as he becomes Ant Man. Working for Dr. Pym, Lang is shrunk to insect size, communicates with ants, and must battle against Yellowjacket (a rogue scientist) who wants to use the shrinking technology for evil purposes. Scott eventually succeeds and re-starts his life as a superhero. Peyton Reed's “Ant-Man” has been acclaimed for its humour, strong cast and CGI sequences.
