The Peanut Gallery's MCU Film Rankings

4 Phases. 15 years. 30 movies. Here's how I rank every MCU film so far.

Back in 2008, it was hard to picture 30 films over 15 years that were connected in this universe created by Marvel. Through ups and downs, the good, the great, and the bad, Kevin Feige and Marvel had a vision that has entertained and captivated millions worldwide. The MCU has become a staple of American cinema, and with Phase 5 about to kick off with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, I thought it would be a good time to look back at the first four phases of films to give you my ranking of the 30 films released so far. There have been some excellent Disney+ shows to be released over the last few years, but to keep it simple, this article will only be focusing on films.
