7 Great Marvel Movies to Add to Your List ...

Marvel movies have become super popular in the past few years. They feature some of our favorite superheroes and have introduced their own “Marvel Universe,” where all of their movies share characters and intertwined plots. If you are not familiar with the incredible Marvel movies out there, I will highly recommend you add these great superhero movies to your “to-watch” list.

1 Iron Man

On iTunes at: itunes.apple.com

Iron Man tops the list of great Marvel movies to add to your list because it introduced us to the wonderful Tony Stark. Of all of the Marvel heroes, Stark is one of the most loved and hated (at the same time). He is sassy and rude, and we love him for it. Iron Man was one of the first movies that took place in the “Marvel Universe” and led to more and more movies that featured the Avengers

2 Thor

On iTunes at: itunes.apple.com

It might just be because I am obsessed with Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman, but Thor is definitely one of my favorite Marvel movies. It adds in the perfect amount of humor when Thor has no idea what things on Earth are. The fact that it introduced me to Tom Hiddleston is just icing on the cake.

3 Captain America

On iTunes at: itunes.apple.com

I am a fan of any movie that features Chris Evans. But even more than that, I love a movie that shows that inner strength and morals are way more important than physical strength. I also love this movie because, unlike most superhero movies that take place in the present or future, this takes place during WWII.

4 X-Men

On iTunes at: itunes.apple.com

I never knew X-Men was a Marvel movie when I was younger, but I still loved it. It not only had a great cast, a great story, and great characters, but it also showed me that being different isn’t that bad. I loved how it shows the struggles not only between mutants and humans, but also between mutants themselves. The themes of morality and humanity that are depicted in X-Men are still relevant today.

5 X-Men: First Class

On iTunes at: itunes.apple.com

After you fall in love with the X-Men series, go back and watch X-Men: Fist Class. It is a prequel that tells you the back-story of all of your favorite characters. It shows how Professor X and Magneto went from friends to enemies and showed how the mutant struggles have been going on since the Cold War. Not to mention it has Jennifer Lawrence in a pre-Hunger Games role.

6 Thor: the Dark World

On iTunes at: itunes.apple.com

After I watched Thor, I just wished there was a sequel that focused more on Loki. Marvel clearly listened to my wishes and came up with Thor: The Dark World. It features more of the relationship between Loki and Thor and shows just how strong their brotherly bond can be. It also takes place in a post-Avengers time, where everyone knows that aliens exist, which gives them more room to play around with the characters on Earth.

7 The Avengers

On iTunes at: itunes.apple.com

How can I create a list of the best Marvel movies and not finish it off with The Avengers? It combines all of our favorite Marvel superheroes in the “Marvel Universe” for one epic battle to save the Earth. It has Captain America’s obliviousness, Tony Stark’s sass, and a love interest we all want between Hawkeye and Black Widow. This was easily one of my favorite movies, and I am super excited for them to release The Avengers 2 in May 2015.

If you love action and adventures, these Marvel movies will quickly become some of your favorites. They are fast-paced, packed with action, and feature some of the most lovable characters out there. What did you think of these must see Marvel movies? Do you have any other favorite Marvel movies? Are you a fan of Marvel movies or do you prefer another type of superhero movie?
