I don’t know how I’m supposed to pick just 5 MCU moments. I mean, we’re talking 10 years worth of films here. Almost every movie has it’s own “moment.” Some do stand out more than others though. Here are the five that I picked.
1. “Avengers. Assemble.” (Avengers: Endgame)
I still get goosebumps (and a few tears) when thinking about this. Finally, after years of waiting to hear those words, it happened. And it happened in the most epic way possible. I still can’t believe we managed to see all those heroes in one movie, in one place coming together to save the world, and the universe. It’s such a special moment and probably something we won’t see again anytime soon.
2. “I Am Iron Man.” (Iron Man)
This line takes on a different feeling now after “Avengers: Endgame” but without “Iron Man” there’s no MCU. There aren’t any top moments or memories. This one line just perfectly sums up Tony Stark. He’s going to do things his way no matter what he’s told.
3. Black Panther In Civil War (Captain America: Civil War)
What an amazing intro for a new character! Plus it changed the way the MCU introduced heroes. It helped move them away from the typical introduction style movie. We easily learn what Black Panther is all about in just this scene, and movie. By the end T’Challa shows why he should be King of Wakanda. He shows empathy and understanding. But we see he’s an amazing warrior as well and just a hint about the technological advances we’ll see down the road.
4. Thor Goes Full Thor (Thor: Ragnarok)
Look, in all the MCU I don’t think there’s a more beautiful scene then this. It’s just perfect. The music, the style, the look. The fact we finally got to see Thor go full God of Thunder. It’s perfection.
5. Steve vs. Bucky (Captain America: Winter Soldier)
Having to see two childhood friends fight it out is heartbreaking, but who are we kidding? It’s hot too. This is probably my favorite MCU movie and watching these two highly skilled characters battle on a crashing helicarrier is just one reason why. To find out your friend is actually alive, and being used a weapon against the world? Just hit me with a truck while you’re at it.
This was a hard list to come up with. I could easily list five more. I mean, we have Spider-Man entering the MCU. Then there’s Carol Danvers realizing her full potential. Steve jumping on a grenade, showing what kind of person he is. Tony finding out who actually killed his parents. Black Widow and her hallway fight scene from “Iron Man 2.” Then you have a movie like “Guardians of the Galaxy” that finally takes the MCU to space and really introduces Thanos.
