What exactly is Marvel? To keep it short, Marvel is the media empire that includes television shows and movies. We think you’ll find this Disney, Marvel can be a great distraction from work. Listed below are all the marvel shows, songs, actors and all the other fun things about the Marvel Universe.
1: Iron Man (2008)
Iron Man (2008) is a great film to see when you want to watch something that is action-packed. I like Iron Man (2008) because it has smart humor, and it’s based off of a comic that most people are familiar with. The one thing I don’t like about the movie is the development of the female characters. For example, Pepper Pots, Tony Stark’s personal assistant, keeps getting kidnapped by the villain Obadiah Stane. This happens every time there is an important plot point in the story. In my opinion, Pepper Pots is not a very interesting character. Her character does not add anything to the plot and could be written out of the movie and it would have been just as good. I also believe that she was made female and put into this role to appeal to a female audience. What I mean by this is that she usually wears tight clothing while being kidnapped. If Pepper Pots did not have any role in Iron Man (2008), then there would be less females in it.[[Category:Comics]]
2: The Incredible Hulk (2008)
The Incredible Hulk is a 2008 superhero film based on the popular Marvel Comics character. The movie stars Edward Norton as Bruce Banner, who has the ability to transform into a giant green monster under stressful situations. His attempts to cure himself of this aspect of his personality lead him to work with Samuel Sterns (Tim Blake Nelson), a biochemist who possesses similar traits. This partnership accidentally creates a new creature that threatens the world.

It features supporting performances from Liv Tyler and Tim Roth, as well as William Hurt reprising his role from the previous film. The film was released on June 13, 2008 in the United States and earned $258 million worldwide over its theatrical run.
The Incredible Hulk was met with mixed reviews; critics praised Norton’s performance but found the storyline less compelling than its predecessor. Some fans were also disappointed that Edward Norton did not appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), although he later explained that he had not been asked to do so by Marvel Studios.
3: Iron Man 2 (2010)
Iron Man 2 is a 2010 American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character Iron Man, produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Paramount Pictures.

Following the successful release of Iron Man in May 2008, Marvel Studios announced and immediately set to work on producing a sequel. In July of that same year Theroux was hired to write the script, and Favreau was signed to return and direct. Downey, Paltrow and Jackson
4: Thor (2011)
With the recent release of Thor (2011), audiences are being introduced to a new, more modern world of Asgard. Odin, now ruling with his beautiful queen, Frigga, has done away with the warlike ways of his youth to instead become a wise and benevolent king. Thor, for his part, has ditched his comic book costume for a suit of shining chain mail. Gone is the giant winged helmet, replaced by a simple leather band across his forehead. The great palace of Asgard has been redone as well; no longer a looming fortress at the edge of the universe, it is now a castle nestled among a forest of slender birch trees and feathery ferns. Yet what lies beyond the castle walls? In order to answer this question, we must first take note of one important detail: there are no visible roads in or out of the kingdom.
5: Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)
The film received positive reviews from critics, who praised its direction, screenplay, acting, musical score, visual effects and action sequences. Some critics found its concept outlandish and noted its plot relied heavily on suspension of disbelief; nevertheless, the film was a box office success.
With a worldwide gross of over $370 million, it was the seventh-highest-grossing film of 2011 and had became the 18th-highest-grossing film of all time at the time of release. It was nominated for two Academy Awards for Best Visual Effects and Best Makeup, and won a BAFTA Award for Best Special Visual Effects.
Captain America: The First Avenger was released on DVD and Blu-ray on October 25, 2011. A sequel titled Captain America: The Winter Soldier was released on April 4, 2014.
6: The Avengers (2012)
The Avengers (2012) was a spectacular movie. It was action packed, funny, and I loved the new characters that were introduced. I went with some friends to see it at our local theater, and after we all saw it, we couldn’t stop talking about everything that happened. We were also impressed by how well the director brought all of our favorite characters together into one movie. We’re not complaining about how long it took to make this blockbuster happen considering how great it turned out to be!
7: Iron Man 3 (2013)
Iron Man 3 is a 2013 superhero film based on the comic book character Iron Man, produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures.

It’s the seventh installment of Marvel Studios’ “Avengers” series, including Thor (2011), The Avengers (2012), and Iron Man 3 (2013). The plot is about Captain America being attacked on his way to an important mission, and uncovering a conspiracy that threatens the world.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action throughout, some disturbing images, and language. Parents should consider the content carefully before taking younger children with them to see it.
This movie will be a good fit for any fans of action movies or superhero movies, although it does contain grisly scenes. I would recommend this film for ages 13 and up, for anyone who enjoys action movies and superheroes, as well as anyone who has seen the other Marvel movies. If you’re looking for a fast-paced thriller full of suspense, this is also an appropriate movie choice.
10: Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

Jackson. In Avengers: Age of Ultron the Avengers fight Ultron who is trying to destroy the world with robots.
12: Ant-Man (2015)
Ant-Man is a fantastical movie about a man who has the ability to shrink himself in size and control an army of ants.
Ant-Man is a great introduction to the Marvel Universe for those less familiar with it. It ties into other issues without overwhelming or alienating anyone who doesn’t follow the comics closely. Even if you don’t know who Ant-Man is, you’ll still find yourself laughing at his antics throughout the film.
Ant-Man has some great special effects and CGI that make the fight scenes spectacular.
Ant-Man’s action sequences are thrilling even though it’s not quite as fast-paced as other Marvel movies. Definitely watch this on the biggest TV possible!
13: Captain America: Civil War (2016)
Captain America: Civil War (2016)Captain America: Civil War, the third installment in the Captain America franchise and the 13th film in Marvel’s cinematic universe, was a love letter to the previous installments in its series as well as to other superhero movies. With this seemingly endless supply of source material, Civil War had an interesting task of choosing what to pull from and how to best represent these ideas on screen. In this movie, the stakes are high—there are real consequences for our main characters if they choose one side over another. This makes all of their actions have real weight with respect to the plot and emotional weight with respect to the audience. The plot itself is a pretty standard superhero story—a group of friends has a falling out over ideological differences and must work together towards a common goal—but it’s told with such flair that it feels new and exciting.
The action scenes were well planned out, realistic, and exciting but not overly long or drawn out. The fight scenes were intense but not gory, so even my mom could watch without cringing or covering her eyes. There were also some unexpected twists and turns that kept me guessing until the end of each fight scene as well as throughout the movie as a whole. My only complaint is that there were
14: Doctor Strange (2016)
Doctor Strange (2016) is a movie that combines the superhero genre with Eastern mysticism and has a strong, compelling story. It stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange, an arrogant neurosurgeon who loses the use of his hands in a car accident and travels to Nepal in search of a cure. He finds Kamar-Taj, where he meets The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) who teaches him about magic and alternate realities. He trains under The Ancient One and Karl Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and begins to learn magic. However, he soon learns that there are many other forces at play in the world of magic: Kaecilius (Mads Mikkelsen), a former student of The Ancient One who wants to use mystical energy for evil, and Dormammu, an interdimensional entity who threatens Earth’s existence.
As well as having a great story, the film is visually stunning. It uses complex computer-generated imagery to create mind-bending scenes that make you wonder what you are seeing. For example, there is one scene when Strange enters an alternate dimension and looks down at his reflection in the mirror: it appears to be broken into hundreds of different pieces which slowly move into different shapes as he moves around
15: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017)
After the first giant-sized hit of Guardians of the Galaxy, it was clear that the studio wanted to capitalize on the blockbuster success by making a sequel. Marvel Studios is looking for a franchise, and their formula is working for them. Audiences just want more. They want to know what happens after all that crazy plot twist with Peter Quill’s (Star-Lord) father. They want to see how the team reacts to Rocket being a member now that he’s not an outlaw killing machine anymore.

16: Spider-Man Homecoming(2017)
This is the first Spider-Man movie that Marvel Studios is making. Instead of a whole franchise of movies, they are starting again with this one Spider-Man Homecoming(2017) movie and seeing how it goes. They may do more if they want to. The actor playing Spider-Man is Tom Holland and he is 20 years old. Robert Downey Jr. plays Tony Stark again in this movie too. He will help Spider-Man along in his adventures.
Spider-Man Homecoming(2017) will show you the beginning of Spider-Man’s story as he grows up and finds out about his powers for the first time. It will also show you about the Avengers Tower and what’s inside it that makes it special. There are many new characters such as Michael Keaton who plays Vulture and Donald Glover who plays Aaron Davis aka Prowler. There are also many old characters from previous films like Peter Parker’s high school friend Ned Leeds played by Jacob Batalon or his love interest Liz Allen played by Laura Harrier. You can see all these characters when the movie comes out on July 7th!
