Marvel is coming on strong this year with the release of three superhero films. Captain Marvel, Avengers: Endgame and another Spider-man film will enter cinemas and will expand this universe to a whole new level.
To clarify, MCU has been through three phases since 2008, it began with the high-flying Iron Man and concluded in 2012 with Marvel’s The Avengers. The continuation into the second phase came in 2013 with Iron Man 3 and ended in 2015 with Ant-Man. Which brings us to the third phase of this superhero with the release of Captain America: Civil War.
Spider-man has had his homecoming to the Marvel Universe, but it is worth clarifying that the other Spiderman franchises, X-men, Wolverine, The Punisher, Deadpool and The Fantastic Four are not included in this universe because they were released by other studios. They may be included in the MCU in the future, but will not be included in this ranking.
With the release of Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War and Ant-man & The Wasp this past year, fans of the graphic novels and comic books have been asking the question:
