With Black Panther shattering box office predictions and amassing an impressive collection of positive reviews (currently a 97% on Rotten Tomatoes!), we started to wonder which Marvel movie is the most popular among fans. Marvel films have a long history stretching back to 1944 when Marvel, then called Timely Comics, released Captain America, the first live-action Marvel movie. However, it wasn’t until late 80s and early 90s that Marvel began making films about their characters again. By the early-to-mid 2000s, the superhero craze was in full swing and Marvel movies were being churned out from multiple studios each year including Sony (Spider-Man), Fox (X-Men), Columbia (Ghost Rider), and more. While these film franchises were already enormously successful, Marvel had even bigger plans that would change the genre forever.
In 2005, Marvel devised a master plan to create a brand new shared universe; a film series which would be created by Marvel itself rather than by outside studios. Perhaps the most ambitious aspect of the project was that each film within the new universe would be a continuation of the same overarching story. This was the birth of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Whether you’re a fan of the MCU with films like Iron Man (2008) and The Avengers (2012) or a fan of Marvel movies made by other studios such as Spider-Man (2002) and Logan (2017) it’s time to decide, once and for all, which Marvel movie is the best?
