MCU Review


Michael Shaver, Opinion Writer

If you have a free weekend what do you usually do? Watch the game or spend time with the family? Well for me I spent the entire weekend watching the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was fun but the migraine was not. This is how we are going to do this. I will go down the list recapping and rating each one. 


Captain America: The First Avenger (takes place during WWII){8/10} Captain America gets his powers and we see the Tesseract for the first time.


Captain Marvel (takes place in 1995){7/10} Captain Marvel gets her powers and we see the tesseract again.


Iron Man (takes place in 2010){9/10} Iron Man becomes Iron Man.


Iron Man 2 (takes place after Iron Man){6/10} Iron Man is still Iron Man.


The Incredible Hulk (time unspecified, pre-Avengers){NOT FOUND} Couldn’t find it anywhere that I couldn’t rent it for so I ended up not seeing it.


Thor (time unspecified, pre-Avengers){7/10} Thor comes to earth and learns humility. 


The Avengers (takes place in 2012){8/10} The team comes together for the first time.


Iron Man 3 (takes place six months after The Avengers){7/10} Iron Man has a midlife crisis.


Thor: Dark World (post-Avengers, pre-Ultron){4/10} Thor has a midlife crisis.


Captain America: Winter Soldier (post-Avengers, pre-Ultron){7/10} Captain America stops Hydra from committing genocide.


Guardians of the Galaxy (sometime in 2014){8/10} Space boy gets a magic rock.


Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (after Guardians){7/10} Space boy learns he’s a god.


Avengers: Age of Ultron (takes place in 2015){7/10} The Avengers fix a problem they made.


Ant-Man (takes place in 2015){7/10} Family man learns that size does matter.


Captain America: Civil War (post-Ultron, pre-Infinity War){8/10} Infighting over a really bad disguise.


Spider-Man: Homecoming (post-Civil War, pre-Infinity War){9/10} Spider boy saves the day.


Doctor Strange (takes place in 2016){8/10} Doctor Strange learns how to use magic.


Black Panther (takes place in 2017){8/10} Black Panther proves he is right for the throne.


Thor: Ragnarok (post-Ultron, pre-Infinity War){9/10} Family Drama and Asgard is destroyed.


Avengers: Infinity War (takes place in 2017){8/10} Half the universe turns to sawdust. 


Ant-Man and The Wasp (ambiguous, but fits nicely between IW and Endgame){8/10} Family man gets big in the streets of San Francisco. 


Avengers: Endgame (starts in 2017, finishes in 2022){9/10} AVENGERS, ASSEMBLE!


Spider-Man: Far From Home (post-Endgame){8/10} Spider Man is known around the world.


So over all the MCU gets a 7.26/10 or a 167/230. I would definitely recommend you watch all of these, maybe just not all at once.
