Avengers Movies Ranked!

Avengers Movies Ranked!

Most kids of our generation were exposed to the superhero world, good and bad. With that, we have most definitely heard of Marvel. Characters that we have learned to enjoy and love include Iron Man, Spider-Man, Thor, and the Hulk. Heroes like these eventually became a group called the Avengers, some of the mightiest heroes. Currently, there are four Avengers movies: “The Avengers,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Avengers: Infinity War,” and “Avengers: Endgame.” Now, critically speaking, how do these rank against one another?

Students and Staff Avengers Rankings

I have ranked each movie with the following criteria:

  • How did these impact the theaters?
  • How did each impact the storyline of the MCU?
  • How much enjoyment does each film give me?
  • How does the movie feel and look? (Special effects, acting, sets, etc.)

Spoiler warning: If you haven’t watched these great movies, watch out, I will include spoilers. Also, watch them; they’re so good.

4. Avengers: Age Of Ultron

Ranking last is “Age Of Ultron.” So, this does not mean I don’t think this movie is good. I do enjoy it a lot, and it introduces some fun and interesting things. We get very good introductions to characters like Wanda Maximoff and Vision. Unfortunately, there was nothing in this movie that made theaters go crazy, besides the introduction of Ultron, the villain of the movie. Ultron was built to help the Avengers, but instead, he killed JARVIS and rebelled against the Avengers. This movie did, however, lead to some very big events in the Marvel universe. The creation of Vision introduces the Time Stone which will become very important in “Infinity War.” We also see the buildup for “Infinity War” when Thor was hallucinating and saw visions of the stones and gauntlet. We also got Wanda joining the Avengers, later getting her own show, “Wanda Vision.” This movie really does make me happy and lets me enjoy myself, but compared to the others, it comes nowhere close to them, but this movie does have good action, which I feel Marvel achieves. The other aspects of the movie are pretty good though, Ultron looks very good since most of the robots in the movie are made using special effects. All of the actors are very good, and I feel all scenes flow with their acting. With a whopping 459 million dollar gain at the box office, it was definitely a huge success, being Marvel’s 5th most successful film.

3. The Avengers

Next, the original “Avengers” was a fantastic film. We get a very good look into Thor and who he is as a character as well as some awesome fights between the Chitauri and the Avengers. We get to see some of the fan-favorite characters all come together: Thor, Iron Man, Black Widow, Captain America, Hulk, and Hawkeye, who also just got a new Disney+ show. This show very much impacted our theaters, bringing our biggest heroes to the big screen together, shaping the Avengers as we know them, and making 623.4 million dollars at the box office. This shaped the future of the MCU, giving us the buildup to the plots of all the future movies, besides the prequels. I absolutely love this movie, so that gives the buildup to the next two, but the characters are fun, interesting, and it’s such a fun story. It’s a nice movie to get started with the Avengers and the start of our characters and their missions, which doesn’t always mean bad by any means! Though the movie may be old, the CGI and acting are still very good. At moments, the CGI is a little rough. The action is amazing though! The battle of New York is a huge battle that you cannot forget and has great scenes with Loki.

Now, the big titles: “Infinity War” vs. “Endgame,” which is worthy of number one?

2. Avengers: Endgame

Listen, this was tough, but I prefer “Infinity War.” “Endgame” though is full of amazing content and great stories. Although, time travel isn’t my thing exactly. I love this movie, but it seems to drag on. There’s no doubt that this movie impacted theaters. It was one of the highest-grossing movies of all time, making 858.4 million dollars in the box office, becoming the second highest grossing movie. Also, let’s talk about that ending, the biggest battle ever in cinematic history. Everyone is back and everyone is fighting, even Howard The Duck. Cap is worthy of Mjolnir. This definitely impacted the future of the MCU; By the end, we lose Iron Man, Cap travels back to be with Peggy, Hulk is now mixed with Banner, Black Widow is dead, and Thor is with the Guardians of the Galaxy. It’s the end of an era. A culmination of all our heroes together from the past 10 years The storyline is so good and intriguing for a great finale. My issue is time (ironic for a movie about time). With a runtime of three hours and two minutes, at times it does feel like it goes on for a while. The CGI, acting, and sets are all top tier. Beautiful scenery, and in most scenes, you can believe what you’re seeing could be real. Their tones and looks are all stunning.

1. Avengers: Infinity War

Oh, what to say about this movie? I have so much love for this movie. Such a perfect movie in so many aspects. A good movie at its finest. Now, although “Endgame” had a huge impact on theaters, the snap was huge. That moment impacted the MCU world. We see so many of our beloved characters killed with no happy ending. Tom Holland’s Spider-Man’s death broke me, as well as others. It’s tragic, to say the least, seeing our heroes die. The impact it had on the MCU was huge as well. Thanos won, and he killed 50% of the population at random, including our heroes. The movie itself is just so good: lovely characters, amazing story, and a great new villain. The events in the movie are just so big and astronomical. It can’t be beaten and has very good comedy as well at times. My favorite movie of all time. Can we mention how good the CGI is? The only time I see it being slightly bad is when Thanos turns some of the Guardians into strange shapes. The acting was amazing from everyone, with great delivery from great characters. It’s the third highest-grossing Marvel movie, making 678.8 million dollars at the box office.
