The Top 10 Moments From The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Thor Ragnarok is less than a month away! How exciting! I’m going to be looking at the top 10 MCU moments ever to hit the big screen…and by the way, no post-credit scenes will be included!
10. “The Hand” – Thor the Dark World
This scene was a true shocker and left us with our mouths wide open. It also showed the true brilliance of the character we all love to hate, Loki. After agreeing to work with Thor to face Malekith “The Accursed”, he supposedly betrays Thor by slicing his hand off. We are all screaming the word “typical” to Thor’s face and calling him gullible for trusting Loki the god of mischief, however what was to come was truly shocking. Loki reveals Thor’s hand was just hidden by his trickery and Thor summons Mjolnir just like that.
9. “Dormammu, I’ve come to bargain!” – Doctor Strange
The scene we all remember from Benedict Cumberbatch’s brilliant performance as Doctor Strange. When Strange’s greatest foe makes a fantastic appearance, Stephen uses the powers of the time stone to basically annoy the hell out of Dormammu causing him to spare Earth in order to escape the eternal time loop. Memorable and hilarious.
8.”Is that the best you can do?” – Avengers Age of Ultron
A triumphant scene for the MCU, showcasing all the Avengers new and old destroying and dismantling Ultron bots around the Vibranium. It showed the true strength and teamwork of the Avengers ending with a typical statement by Thor…”Is that the best you can do”. Ultron responds with hundreds, if not thousands more Ultron bots.
7.”The Rainbow bridge” – Thor
Mixed feelings present for this moment occurring in one of the best MCU movies ever. Many things happen when Thor clashes with his mischievous brother Loki, and is forced to protect Earth by destroying the Bifrost. This causes Odin to wake from his sleep and attempt to save what’s rest of Loki. A sad ending with falling into the abyss…but that wasn’t the last we saw of him!
6.”We’re the Guardians of the Galaxy” – Guardians of The Galaxy
Guardians of the Galaxy was an unexpected blockbuster. Who would have thought that an 80’s space themed comedic action film would have been so charming? A central theme running through the MCU is the fate of the Infiniti Stones. Starlord and the Guardians risk it all by absorbing the Power Stone and destroy Ronan the accuser saving Xandar from destruction.
5.”Bucky?” – Captain America The Winter Soldier
In my opinion without doubt the greatest action film ever to be made. The second installment of Captain America was titled “The Winter Soldier” which sparked confusion within movie fans but pure excitement for comic book fans. A mysterious assassin to appears to have murdered Director of Shield Nick Fury. His mask is removed on the awesome battle of the highway and is revealed to be Cap’s best friend from his WWII days…Bucky! Steve Rodgers is shocked and caught off guard leading to his arrest at the hands of Brock Rumlow AKA Crossbones.
4.”I am Iron Man” – Iron Man
The movie that launched the MCU. The origin story of how Tony Stark became Iron Man. This one scene describes billionaire Stark perfectly. Where most superheroes battle to keep their identity a secret, Stark’s (in)famous ego means that at a packed press conference he at first denies any involvement with Iron Man, but then stuns the world by declaring straight faced…”I am Iron Man”. And thus was born the MCU.
3.”I will bathe the star ways with your blood” – Guardians of the Galaxy
The first appearance in an actual movie for the big baddie of the NCU, Thanos!. He shows his true power by frightening the hell out of the feared Ronan. Thanos’ look is perfect and is plucked straight from the comic books. After dealing with Ronan like a naughty child, he leaves us with his signature bad boy grin!
2.”Avengers Assemble!” – The Avengers
Captain America, Black Widow and Hawkeye arrive by jet. Thor arrives with his magical hammer Mjolnir. The Hulk leaps his way to action. Finally, Iron man joins the team to face the Chitauri and the Levaiathons. The perfect scene for the Avengers to Aseemble!
1.”Underoos” – Captain America Civil War
One of my favourite MCU scenes! So much happens! Heroes go toe to toe in mortal battle. Marvel’s most iconic character makes his first ever appearance in the MCU…and it doesn’t disappoint! Spidey on Team Iron-Man against Cap’s Team…iconic!
