Shang-Chi came out in 2021 and it landed in the top five best MCU movies receiving a 91% of Rotten Tomatoes. This movie deserved to be in the top 5 of best MCU films. It’s unique. I love the mix of Asian culture, family, and martial arts. It’s separate from the rest of MCU minus a couple of minor references so it feels like its own.

4. Thor: Ragnarok

This movie is amazing and is one of my favorite MCU movies. In this movie, there are moments to celebrate, cherish and love together as fans. There were so many ways this fight could fail and yet it never did, giving the audience wonderful, emotionally charged action and an epic feel that made the film one of the best superhero movies of all time.

1. Black Panther

With a 96% score, Black Panther received accolades for its talent, storyline, costumes, and music. This film shows how good storytelling could make the audience fall in love with the characters.
