Marvel films have always got us excited. Right from the first Iron Man film, there haven’t been any marvel films that failed to steam us up. However, after the Endgame, we miss our favorite superheroes, but Marvel won’t let the craze go down.
Since the Avengers: Endgame, MCU has produced some anticipating films on new superheroes and the ones from the Avengers. The fans enormously loved some while some couldn’t meet great heights. But for a marvel fan, every film is special and nostalgic. So here’s a list of the new Marvel films ranked in accordance with their IMDb ratings.
7 New Marvel Films Ranked As Per
Eternals IMDb Rating: 6.3
Released in 2021, Eternals initially did well at the box office as a post-pandemic film. But soon, the reviews began to sink. Eternals is based on a clan of 10 immortal people with superhuman powers with secret identities, and they reunite again when the villain, Deviants, returns.
The fans did not well accept the film for its diversification and new style of narration. Director Chloe Zhao’s uniquity focussing on the inner battles of the characters instead of external battles was something that couldn’t fascinate marvel fans. Moreover, MCU’s attempt to redefine the idea of a hero by portraying Phastos as homosexual was not well accepted.
Black Widow IMDb Rating: 6.7
Her sacrifice at Vormir saddened all the MCU fans; thus, the makers gifted us the film as a dedication to Black widow. Released in 2021, the film summed up Black Widow’s missions after the Civil War. As she fights against the evil Dreykov, Black Widow reunites with her parents and younger sister.
Despite dwelling on the complex past of Black Widow, the narrative felt relatable, owning to the bond between the sisters. While Natasha Romanoff was commendable with the action & chase sequences, Yelena Belova made the film playful with her witty punches. Though the special effects could have been better in some instances, Black Widow is surely a treat for all MCU enthusiasts.
Thor: Love and Thunder IMDb Rating: 6.8
Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love & Thunder has been an intriguing watch. Showcasing the satirical and humorous side of the Asgardian Avenger, the film had a different narrative than other MCU films. Revolving around Thor as he fights against the God butcher, Gorr, this film has been more of a romcom.
Fans’ anticipation of the film being more action-filled and bombastic was certainly switched to acute humor and a generic romcom. Though Christian Bale as Gorr excited the fans, the narrative needed more build-up for his role. However, if you want a quick laugh, you will surely love this MCU romcom.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness IMDb Rating: 7
The sequel to the 2016 Doctor Strange film was released in 2022 with a lot of grandeur. Directed by Sam Raimi, this film revolves around Dr. Strange protecting a teen girl who can travel multiple universes against evils.
The MCU film showcases some amazing visual effects, enhancing the narrative and making it fascinating for the viewers. As Dr. Strange faces new challenges, Sam’s tight screenplay and amazing special effects have vibrantly rendered the elements of fantasy and horror. Though some scenes from the bombastic sequel felt inept, fans really enjoyed the surprising cameos and a new Master of the Mystic Arts.
Shang-Chi and the Legends of the Ten Rings IMDb Rating: 7.4
This is one of the most fantastic and popular new-age MCU films. Directed by Destin Cretton, Shang-Chi is Marvel’s first Asian superhero. The plot encapsulates a frivolous man, Sean’s disclosure of his past and identity as a true warrior.
The film has been charismatic with its action sequels and the perfect background score, making us sit at the edge of our seats. Cretton has flawlessly balanced the portrayal of MCU elements and the Asian cultures. This father-son tale from MCU is a treat to the eyes.
Spider-Man: Far from Home IMDb Rating: 7.4
Portraying a life after the Endgame was quite difficult for the filmmakers. But the way it showcased Peter’s struggle dealing with Tony Stark’s demise and his identity made it an apt sequel for MCU’s Endgame.
Released in 2019, the film is based on Peter’s battle against Mysterio and past events. The film also offers a romantic angle between Peter and MJ(Zendaya) which makes this film a perfect blend of romance and Marvel’s actions. Though, in some instances, humor seemed forced, the intriguing chemistry between Mysterio and Spider-Man made this film a fascinating and satiating sequel to the Endgame.
Spider-Man: No way Home IMDb Rating: 8.3
After it was revealed that Peter Parker was Spider-man, life became different for Peter and his loved ones. So to restore the secret, Peter seeks Dr. Strange’s help and unfolds a lot more in the process. Revolving around Peter and his secret, the third Spider-man film hit the big screen in 2021.
Spider-man: No way home has been one of the best MCU films having a perfect balance of all the Marvel elements.
