Captain America

The very first film on our list because it’s set in the time of World war 2 .

Captain Marvel

This gem hit theatres just before the Infinity war and startled everyone with its emerging superhero.Set in 1995, we see the Carol Danvers, played by Brie Larson, fall to Earth and begin a hunt for the shape-shifting Skrull aliens. There’s as much action here as there is nostalgia, especially if you’re a 90s kid, thanks to scenes with Blockbuster stores and even dial-up internet.

3)IRON MAN (2008)

Iron man

It’s all about a genius/inventor/philanthropist/playboy Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr. He is captured by a terrorist organization, the leader of which wants the latest weapons system designed by Stark.

7)THE AVENGERS (2012)

Avengers

AVENGERS! ASSEMBLE!The Avengers is the culmination of the so-called “Phase 1” of the MCU. With all the main heroes having been introduced, the real challenge was finding something daunting enough to force them to work together. The combined power of Loki, the Tesseract, and an alien horde invading New York City proved to be the match that made these superheroes become friends in life and on the frontline.
