I know there's a big poll of a bunch of Marvel and DC films, but I'm just interested in Marvel because, let's face it, DC sucks.  :P

Good point.

This will probably not reflect my ranking on the other poll perfectly, because, well, consistency is for squares and all that, but here it goes:

Avengers: Age of Ultron
Captain America: Civil War
The Avengers
Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Iron Man
Doctor Strange
Iron Man 3
Ant-Man

Thor
Iron Man 2
Guardians of the Galaxy
The Incredible Hulk
Captain America: The First Avenger
Thor: The Dark World


NB:
1) Is NB a thing for English speakers ?
2) Am I the only one annoyed by the fact that it is not called The Avengers: Age of Ultron ?
3) I just realized Guardians has a "u" but Galaxy does not.

I think so, but I took 4 years of Latin, so I may have no clue how other English speakers take it.

No you're not. I always typed it out as The Avengers: Age of Ultron, until recently.

In many countries, the first film is known as Avengers: Assemble.

Gives me comfort to see I'm not the only one who thinks the Iron Man series is one of Marvel's low points.

DH, Pretty remarkable recovery for Captain America considering what you thought of the first film.

Oh absolutely. That first one is shameful garbage that gave me trepidation at the idea of watching its sequel. Winter Soldier turned out to be the best surprise of that year.

It's not surprising though. Unlike the first two Iron Man movies, the writers or directors are not the same, so there should be no reason to expect a consistency in quality or type of story.

What, not The Avengers: Assemble ? That only makes me madder.

Surprised! Are you letting IM2 decrapitide overwhelm you? I said earlier Starks origin story is the only one that works. It's not only Shane Black's stardust making IM3 glitter; Sir Kingsley/Pearce/ Badge and the posh English sort are one of the few villain combos that really work. Dissed a Shane Black film dude! Shameful.  ;D

That whole villain switcheroo is incredibly convoluted and makes the terrorism arc pointless.

Is it a Shane Black film? The script is by Drew Pearce (MI5, which I also found overly formula) with Black doing re-writes. There's the occasional Black line, but he's mostly following the marching orders of the studio so he can go and make The Nice Guys. (THAT'S what a Shane Black film looks and sounds like.) Iron Man 3 is the waste of a good cast that Doctor Strange is not and that Iron Men finale needed a Director who could craft an action sequence.

I'm glad it's mostly getting Orange around here.
