Okay, the moment has arrived for me to share my top 5 favorite scenes in the MCU. So, with no further delay, here they are.
5. The Peter Tingle
Every superhero has their moment. You know. That moment when they realize their full potential as a hero and become greater than they already were. In the last bout against Mysterio and his killer drones Spider-Man finally fits the missing link to his abilities; his Spidey-sense or as they call it in these films, the Peter Tingle.
It’s a scene crafted from epic proportions as Spider-Man, with his eyes closed, takes down Mysterio’s drones in a musicless rampage of awesomeness that puts goosebumps on my goosebumps every time. I love this scene!
4. Captain Marvel’s Power
Captain Marvel isn’t one of the better MCU movies but it has some of my favorite scenes in the entire franchise, this being one of them. Carol Danvers struggles with her identity and control over her power throughout the film but when she breaks free of the Krees’ control and becomes who she is meant to be, against the backdrop of ridiculously epic music, I am wowed every time.
3. Captain Marvel Saves Earth
Speaking of awesome, have you ever seen a movie scene that is so great it nearly brings you to tears? Yeah, that’s this scene for me. For years, I’ve watched Superman fly through the sky, kick butt, and save Lois Lane from ultimate peril. Never have we been able to see a woman of the same strength and caliber fly through the sky and kick butt on the big screen quite like this.
The music makes my heart soar with joy, the visuals of this scene draws me in, and by the sequence’s conclusion, I am transformed into a bonafide Captain Marvel fan. These two scenes alone are why I absolutely love this character and can’t wait for a sequel.
2. Thanos Arrives on Earth
Infinity War is an epic movie through and through with jaw-dropping moments left and right but this moment here is when the film takes a fantastic turn. Thanos slowly but efficiently collects all of the Infinity Stones through the movie’s entirety and by the time he arrives on Earth it’s very clear, he’s all business. All that stands in his way between the ultimate realization of his goal are several Avengers and that doesn’t mean much to him with him wielding five! Infinity Stones. I love this part.
1. Avengers Assemble
Hands down, my favorite scene in the MCU is this one right here. The tears, the unspeakable joy, this scene has invoked feelings in me that I have never experienced with any other movie…ever! This will go down as one of the greatest moments in cinema history and I stand by that declaration proudly.
So, there are my top 20 favorite scenes in the MCU. I had so much fun sharing this list with you and I thank you for reading. Have a beautiful day.
