Top 10 is back again to bring you reading pleasure once again. What we do is come up with a topic, come up with our own lists, and combine them to make a consensus Top 10. This week with Captain Marvel heading to theaters, we decided to countdown the Top 10 MCU Moments. Now, what is a moment? It can be an event, a scene, a joke, a death, or many other things. There is plenty to choose from with 20 movies worth and counting so this was very difficult. Let’s get started.
10. Prison Breakout Scene –Guardians of the Galaxy
We begin with one of the best scenes from the first Guardians in the prison breakout scene. This where we get to see the team together as a unit all working together and it’s glorious. Rocket needs a
9. T’Challa vs Killmonger waterfall battle –Black Panther
Now we have a more serious moment coming from Best Picture nominee Black Panther. Killmonger returns to Wakanda to the surprise of everyone and challenges T’Challa to the throne. Watching T’Challa slowly begin to be defeated after giving Killmonger chances to yield is tough to watch. Zuri getting killed as a sacrifice also hits home. It all ends with T’Challa being thrown off the waterfall in front of his people. This is the moment in the film that made everyone realize how real Killmonger is.
8. Reveal of Vulture’s Identity –Spider-Man: Homecoming
This is one of the MCU’s most clever moments. Peter Parker finally gets the courage to ask his crush to the dance and he
7. Iron Man’s First Suit Run –Iron Man
We take it back to the very first MCU film with this one in Iron Man’s first combat run with his suit. This was my favorite moment for a long time. Tony has the suit ready to go and sees the same terrorists who captured him torturing others with his own weapons. He flies out there in the suit and does some incredible things. The best moment has to be when the tank shoots him out of the sky and he fires a missile back while walking away in slow motion with the explosion in the background. It’s a moment I stop and watch whenever the film is on no matter what.
6. Elevator Fight –Captain America: The Winter Soldier
To another fight
5. We Are Groot – Guardians of the Galaxy
This moment should be number one, I don’t know what some people are thinking. The best moment from Guardians of the Galaxy is the moment the ship is going down on
4. Spider-Man’s Death –Avengers: Infinity War
3. Avengers Assemble Shot –Avengers
Now we have the moment that became of staple of cinema forever that comes from the original Avengers. The moment is when Banner says “I’m always angry” becomes the Hulk, punches that alien thing, and our Avengers circle up. That shot is so amazing as the camera goes 360 degrees with them all facing out. It is the moment they really come together as a team. In addition, we have that legendary score by Alan Silvestri in the background. You’re humming it now
2. The Snap – Avengers: Infinity Warmarvel
Here is the moment that ties into number four, and that is the snap from Avengers: Infinity War. Thanos looks as if he has been defeated and just when you think it’s over he says, “You should’ve gone for the head” and snaps is fingers, wiping out half the universe. Many moments people listed came from this one where we see deaths of Bucky, Groot, Scarlett Witch, Falcon, Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Mantis, Groot, Drax, Star Lord, and Spider-Man. It is a gut punch people were not ready for and it changed what franchises could do forever.
1.Airport Fight –Captain American: Civil War
In what might seem like a big upset, our number one moment in MCU history in the airport fight scene in Captain America: Civil War. The film had been building to this moment all along and we get to see the two teams go at it. Matchups we never thought we would see that happen include Spider-Man vs Captain America or Hawkeye vs Black Widow. The best moment we all know is Ant-Man becoming Giant-Man. It was so cool to see this giant just wreck shop. Everything that happens here is awesome and worthy of a top moment.
Well there you have it. The Top 10 MCU Moments. There were plenty to choose from and some great moments were left off. No Korg or Yondu? Come on, now. Where was The Immigrant Song? What are we missing? What does your list look like? Let us know and we will see you next time with another Top 10.
