The 10 best Marvel movies on Disney+

1. Iron Man


Year: 2008

Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Terrence Howard

Rotten Tomatoes score: 94% Fresh

IMDb score: 7.9

The first movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is not only entertaining on its own, it's also a must-see for those new to the franchise. Mostly because it introduces one of the most important characters in the MCU with flair and gives us a sense of the grand spectacle to come.

The story revolves around billionaire engineer Tony Stark, who creates a weaponised suit of armour to fight evil after being held captive in an Afghan cave.

Robert Downey Jr. is sensational in the lead role, playing Stark with a dazzling combo of humour, arrogance and charm – something he went on to do for more than a decade. We wouldn't have a Marvel Cinematic Universe without Iron Man. It's accessible and it perfectly stands the test of time. In other words, it's still the perfect title to help you kick off your Marvel marathon.

2. The Avengers


Year: 2012

Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth

Rotten Tomatoes score: 92% Fresh

IMDb score: 8.0

The first Avengers movie aged particularly well, probably because seeing these superheroes bicker and fight alongside each other for the first time will never get old.

When an unexpected enemy emerges, Nick Fury, director of the international agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., needs help to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. As a result, he puts together a super-powered team that includes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. Together, they have to defend the planet from a foreign invasion of massive proportions.

Fast-paced and brilliantly written, The Avengers remains one of the best comic book movies ever made. It gives every character a chance to shine while also highlighting their strength as a team and leaving the audience desperate for more. And the big, final battle? It's the stuff of dreams.

3. Guardians of the Galaxy


Year: 2014

Cast: Chris Pratt, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana

Rotten Tomatoes score: 91% Fresh

IMDb score: 8.0

To call Marvel's first real foray into space a success would be an understatement. From its hilarious opening sequence that sees Chris Pratt's character Star-Lord dance through an abandoned alien vault you can tell that the movie is something special.

An epic space adventure, Guardians of the Galaxy follows a team of misfits forced into an uneasy truce when they realise they have to stop a fanatical warrior with plans to purge the universe.

With a glorious soundtrack, an endless supply of jokes and plenty of heart, Guardians of the Galaxy quickly established itself as a quintessential Marvel movie, expanding the universe and giving viewers a new team of oddballs to root for. Not to mention the fact that it's beautiful to look at.

4. Captain America: Civil War


Year: 2016

Cast: Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan

Rotten Tomatoes score: 91% Fresh

IMDb score: 7.8

The Avengers usually fight evil together, but what happens when they end up fighting among themselves? That's the premise behind Civil War, a movie that isn't afraid to explore thought-provoking themes while also pulling off exciting action set pieces.

After an incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability to keep the heroes in check. While one group from inside the Avengers supports the government's decision to implement a law to control their powers, another opposes the idea. Mayhem ensues.

Captain America: Civil War deftly balances ethical dilemmas with character studies and great action. The end result? An emotional rollercoaster of a movie that holds nothing back and changes the Avengers' dynamics for the long run.

Year: 2016

Rotten Tomatoes score: 89% Fresh

A Marvel film with mesmerising visuals, Doctor Strange will end up playing an important role in the story as a whole, so you'll want to pay attention.

We follow Stephen Strange, a famous neurosurgeon who loses the ability to use his hands following a car accident. Desperately looking for a cure, he goes to visit the mysterious Ancient One and ends up learning how to become a great sorcerer under her tutelage.

Benedict Cumberbatch is perfectly cast in the lead role, deftly balancing subtle comedy with the more emotional moments his character has to go through. This is a superhero origin story that stands out from the crowd thanks to its gorgeous special effects. You'll be glued to the screen the whole time.

6. Thor: Ragnarok


Year: 2017

Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Mark Ruffalo

Rotten Tomatoes score: 93% Fresh

IMDb score: 7.9

Directed by Taika Waititi, Thor: Ragnarok is arguably the funniest movie in the MCU. Yet, it still manages to move the action forward in elegant fashion and show us a new side of a hero we already love.

Deprived of his mighty hammer Mjolnir, Thor finds himself stranded on the planet Sakaar, where he meets a familiar face from his past. The god of thunder must race back to Asgard to prevent Ragnarok – the destruction of his world at the hands of the powerful and ruthless villain Hela, goddess of death.

Visually stunning, well-acted and impeccably scripted, Thor: Ragnarok is like a fun acid trip you don't want to end. Populated with colourful characters and boasting some intriguing mythology, the movie is a very good time.

7. Black Panther


Year: 2018

Cast: Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira

Rotten Tomatoes score: 96% Fresh

IMDb score: 7.3

Black Panther is a triumph for Marvel. It's a movie that perfectly combines important themes with sharply choreographed action and moments of delicious comedy. It was nominated for Best Picture at the 91st Academy Awards. More importantly, its cultural significance is undeniable, as it tackles issues affecting modern-day Black life.

In Black Panther, we follow T'Challa, who heads back to the isolated but technologically advanced country of Wakanda following his father's death. But when an old enemy reappears on the radar, T'Challa is caught in a conflict that puts the entire world at risk.

Fast-paced and offering a fresh spin on the superhero genre, Black Panther may have been long overdue, but it lives up to the hype. Buckle up for gorgeous cinematography, gripping fight scenes and one hell of a villain.

An ambitious entry in the MCU, Avengers: Infinity War was 10 years in the making and manages to seamlessly bring together almost every Marvel superhero into a single film of epic proportions.

9. Captain Marvel


Year: 2019

As the first MCU movie to revolve around a female superhero, Captain Marvel had plenty of expectations to live up to. Thankfully, Brie Larson's excellent performance was worth the wait.

Larson plays Vers, a Kree warrior who gets separated from her team and is stranded on Earth back in the 90s. Things take an unexpected turn when she pairs up with S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Nick Fury and embarks on a journey of self-discovery.

A well-crafted origin story, Captain Marvel boasts an empowering message and introduces a powerful new character in the franchise. The movie also benefits from the witty banter between Vers and Fury, who have amazing chemistry.

Avengers: Endgame picks up where Infinity Wars left off and follows our heroes as they work to restore some sort of balance into the universe. It marks the end of an era for the MCU, wrapping up the storylines of some of the franchise's most beloved characters and taking the audience on an unpredictable and exhilarating ride.
