In the past ten years Marvel Studios has presented seventeen! movies, all with their own style, own stories, and there have been countless incredible scenes between them all. Today I’m going to share with you my ten favorite scenes that have come from the movies that have spanned nearly half my lifetime. Enjoy!
10. Vision Comes To Life (Avengers: Age of Ultron)
Avengers: Age of Ultron wasn’t one of the best Marvel movies but it had one of the greatest surprises for me; Vision. One of my favorite things in a movie is a surprise you don’t see coming and I definitely didn’t see this coming. I remember watching the movie and as Thor electrified the case holding Ultron’s experiment robot with lightning he was residing in I was waiting to see what would happen. When Vision popped out of that container not as a villain but rather as an ally I was shocked.
And then…he grabbed Thor’s hammer and handed it to him! Mind blown! I was utterly stunned. Who was this remarkably powerful superhero that I had no idea about? And he had Jarvis’s voice! It was profoundly one of the greatest surprises I have ever seen in a movie and it’s why this is one of my favorite scenes.
9. The Chase Scene (Captain America: Civil War)
One of the reasons why this is my favorite scene is because it’s the first time we get to see Black Panther in action. I mean the scene was already enjoyable because it was a car chase (I love car chase scenes) but add the element of Black Panther and it really becomes special.
8. Thor Fights the Fire Monster and his Minions (Thor: Ragnarok)
Thor: Ragnarok started with a bang by having one of the coolest and funniest scenes I’ve seen in Marvel so far. It was immediately revealed that this wasn’t going to be your typical epic Thor movie as Thor cracked jokes as he spun around and around in his hanging, chained position. And then, after freeing himself, watching Thor fight with his awesome hammer against the backdrop of Led Zeppelin singing was pretty off the chain. It was the perfect way to start the movie and it’s one of the reasons this film has become one of my favorite Marvel films so far.
7. The ‘Doctor Strange’ Ending
Doctor Strange was filled with mind bending visuals, hilarious moments, and great action scenes but my favorite part of the movie is literally the quietest moment of the film. Doctor Strange has helped save the world, he hasn’t officially taken the role of the Ancient One but he now stands guard over the New York Sanctum, and it’s just a really silent moment as he realizes the responsibility he now has. The cinematography is beautiful, the music is special, and as the camera zooms out and you see the Sanctum against the backdrop of New York I always get chills. It’s also a fascinating scene because I know the next time I’ll see him, besides the little brief cameo in Thor: Ragnarok, he’ll be helping the Avengers in the fight against Thanos. Awesome!
6. Saving the S.H.I.E.L.D Agents (Captain America: The Winter Soldier)
I didn’t like Captain America very much several years ago. I had only seen him in The Avengers and I felt that he was just kind of…boring. And his suit was terrible. When I went to see Captain America: The Winter Soldier I wasn’t overly excited about the movie. I was just going to go see a Marvel film. I was instantly hooked however after this first action scene featuring Captain America. It was like he was a whole other person.
His suit, a dark blue, was sleek and made him look like a superhero ninja. His fighting skills were much, much better, and I was utterly fascinated as he cleared the entire deck of the ship by himself. It was amazing. I knew, at that moment, the movie was going to become one of my favorites.
5. Captain America Turns Rogue (Captain America: The Winter Soldier)
This scene isn’t very important, I mean it’s when Captain America goes rogue after Secretary Pierce got his Hydra minions to try to kill him, but the main reason why I love this scene is simply because of the music. It gives the scene such a heroic feeling and seeing Captain America take down that Hydra plane by himself is awesome! This scene just makes me really, really happy.
4. A Shocking Truth (Captain America: Civil War)
Captain America: Civil War is one of the best told stories in Marvel so far. The story line kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the entire film and this scene was the bombshell of the movie. To find out Bucky was the person who murdered Tony’s parents was utterly shocking and it really put the movie into a darkness rarely seen in Marvel’s films. It deeply fractured Captain America and Iron Man’s friendship and I don’t think they’ll ever be good friends again. We’ll see what happens, however, in Avengers: Infinity War.
3. The Winter Soldier Attacks (Captain America: The Winter Soldier)
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is my favorite Marvel film because there are so many incredible action scenes in this movie and this is one of them. The Winter Soldier was actually a villain worth getting a little afraid of and he gave Captain America and Black Widow a run for their money. It was one of the few times that you actually saw them having trouble against a foe because the Winter Soldier’s skill set was as exceptional as theirs. It made this scene that much more enjoyable. And watching Steve Roger fight Bucky in a tense, ugly duel was the highlight of the scene.
2. The Avengers Assemble (The Avengers)
While The Avengers seems super old and lame compared to the Marvel movies now this scene is still very special to me because it’s the first time these heroes came together in a single shot and its super epic. This movie really changed my view of these superhero films and because of how monumental this film was it’s the reason why The Avengers is the fifth highest grossing film of all time.
This scene still has a special place in my heart and it probably always will.
1. Spider-Man Gets Inducted into The Avengers (Spider-Man: Homecoming)
Spider-Man: Homecoming was a very, very enjoyable film and this scene is the icing on the cake. Watching Peter Parker become an Avenger is such a special moment that it makes me feel just as happy as him. And it’s the first time you get to see his Iron-Spider suit, which is AWESOME by the way.
I love this new Spider-Man so much and seeing him officially become an Avenger is really fantastic. I can’t wait to see him in action in Avengers: Infinity War. It’s going to be so much fun seeing him standing alongside all of those incredible superheroes.
Well, these are the ten scenes out of many that I have found to enjoy the most from Marvel’s seventeen films. I’m sure after Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War this list will definitely have to be updated.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
