Top 5 Marvel Films

Marvel are a series of extremely popular comics and in recent years they have been made into films. Most of the Marvel films are interlinked with each other in some way, and they have the common fact that Stan Lee (writer of the comics and former president and chairman of Marvel comics) appears in every film for a very short amount of time. The tradition started in 1989 when he had a cameo in one of the original TV Hulk spin-off movies.

The films are all based on Marvel comics and are part of a shared universe which means the plots from all the different films cross over.

Top 5 Marvel films

We have picked our top 5 marvel films, if you have some time on your hands why not work your way through our list and have a marvel movie marathon, as far as we are concerned that is definitely a good way to make the most out of your free time.

1. Iron Man

Iron Man was the first film in the Marvel cinematic Universe in 2008. It is the ultimate geeky fantasy involving an ordinary man creating his own superpowers of sorts. Robert Downey Jr.'s sarcastic wit really adds to the film. There is a hint of romance with his assistant Gwenth Paltrow, action packed scenes, fast cars, gadgets galore and a bit of mystery. It really could appeal to all sorts of audiences as there is something for everyone.

2. Thor 

Starring Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and Tom Hiddleston the Thor films are all based on Norse mythology with a modern twist. It is a tale of love, war and betrayal. Although these films are very romance based they are also largely about the betrayal of Loki, Thor's brother. 

3. Guardians of the Galaxy

This is a very off the wall Marvel film, quite different to all of the others, it is set mainly in space and revolves around the infamous Star-Lord. Peter Quill (aka Star-Lord) is kidnapped as a child and raised by space pirates. Decades later he steals a valuable orb. The orb is much sought after by many people including Yondu one of the pirates, who places bounty on Peter so he can have the orb for himself.  Peter tries to sell the orb and ends up in prison where he forms a team to help him break out of, collect money from the orb and kill Ronan the person trying to destroy the planet Xandar. There is more to the orb than they know.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2 is out on 28th April 2017
