It’s Day 2 of my Ranking the Marvel Trailers from Worst to Best series and I’m so excited to share with you the top ten trailers. Enjoy!
(If you missed it the first part to this series is linked here.)
10. Iron Man 2
Whoa, this is a good trailer. It shows plenty of exciting money shots without giving the viewer any idea of what the movie is about. It’s kind of amazing. And Whiplash actually presents a legitimate threat in this trailer. I like it.
9. Captain America: Civil War
I remember seeing this trailer and being a tad bit horrified. Seeing these heroes that had grown to be friends fighting each other is kind of mortifying. I’m glad the movie ended up being even better than this trailer because that shows how good it is.
8. Thor: Ragnarok
This trailer is awesome. It’s funny, the music is spot on, and the different tone revived the Thor franchise in a stunning way. Taika Waititi was the perfect person to direct this movie and it’s honestly one of Marvel’s best gambles.
7. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 was a somewhat disappointing sequel but this trailer is great. It’s hilarious, it makes you super excited to see the Guardians again, and who doesn’t love the vibrant colors? It’s magnificent.
This trailer is a complete misdirection from the actual tone of the film. It actually gives a vague idea of what the Ant-Man series would look like if they were serious movies. I happen to like the comedic tone a lot more but I have to say, this is a great trailer.
5. Black Panther
I still remember the first time I saw this trailer. It made me SOOOO excited. Now that I look at it I know how much of the story it was leaving out. That’s the genius of this teaser. It gave us a lot of tantalizing money shots without conveying the plot and that’s what is most important. I love this trailer.
4. Doctor Strange
Doctor Strange is a GREAT movie and this trailer reminds me why. I love how it doesn’t show practically anything about the movie and yet gives us one tiny glimpse of him in the iconic Doctor Strange outfit at the very end of the trailer. Gosh, I’m getting chills just thinking about it. I love Doctor Strange!!!
3. Avengers: Age of Ultron
Oh my goodness, if the movie had ended up like this trailer it would’ve undoubtedly been one of the best Marvel movies ever made. This trailer is so ridiculously good I’m kind of shocked and it’s reminding me why I was so excited to see this film in the first place. While the movie ended up not being that spectacular this trailer is simply off the chain!
2. Guardians of the Galaxy
This is seriously taking me down memory lane. I remember watching this movie trailer in the movies in IMAX and (I’m covered in goosebumps just thinking about it) and being absolutely wowed by what I was seeing. At the time I had no idea about these characters and so it was super strange to see these alien superheroes. I didn’t know what the movie was going to be about but I knew I wanted to see it. Still to this day this is one of the best Marvel films ever created and this trailer proves that.
1. Avengers: Infinity War
Have you ever seen a trailer that gets better with every viewing? Well, that’s how I feel about Infinity War‘s trailer. This trailer was downright incredible when it first came out but now after seeing the actual movie it’s even more impactful because I know the movie is actually as good as the trailer. The dire tone is legit, Thanos is legit, the end-of-the-world stakes are SUPER legit, and the awesomeness is legit. This trailer is so good it nearly brings me to tears when I watch it because I still can’t believe this film is this good. If Avengers 4 has a trailer better than this I don’t know what I’m going to do.
The next Marvel movie to get excited for is Captain Marvel which is going to come out in next March and I am beyond excited to see its teaser. Trailers tell you everything about how good a movie is going to be and I’m hoping it’s going to be AMAZING!
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day.
