Yesterday I shared the first five scenes in my top 20 favorite-scenes-in-the-MCU countdown. Now, it’s time for the next five. Let the countdown commence.
15. Captain America’s Startling Reawakening
Steve Rogers a.k.a Captain America was thought to be dead but instead, he was frozen in time and thawed out in the 21st century. Say what you will about Captain America: The First Avenger. This is one of my favorite movie endings for a superhero movie ever. It’s such a fun way to introduce Captain America to our futuristic world and, for a bonus, it features Nick Fury too. Love it!
14. “What the f–?!”
Speaking about superhero movie endings, this is also one of my favorite. Part of Spider-Man’s story and the daily challenge is to keep his aunt, friends, and the world from knowing who he, Peter Parker, really is. Marvel Studios has thrown that scenario out of the window and it’s fitting, considering that Tony Stark broke that secret-hero narrative in Iron Man. This is a world where the heroes are known and that makes Spider-Man’s story a little more complex than before.
13. Who Can Lift Mjolnir?
From the first time I watched this scene to the last time I watched this scene, it has always managed to make me laugh.
12. Gamora’s Death
There isn’t much tragedy in the MCU. Avengers: Infinity War is full of it. This scene has always been haunting and even though Gamora was essentially revived in Endgame, it still hurts.
11. “And I am Iron Man.”
Avengers: Endgame isn’t the best superhero movie that I’ve ever seen but it has moments that are downright unforgettable, this being one of them. I knew Iron Man was going to die but at least his death arrived via the most epic sacrifice ever conceived in a superhero film. I love this scene and yeah, I cry like a baby every time too.
Oh, snap, tomorrow arrives the next five scenes for this countdown.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a beautiful day.
