Ranking and Analyzing the Marvel Cinematic Universe (as of June 2016)

Around this time last year, this blog experienced more traffic in one weekend than it did for the entirety of 2015.  I could take personal affront at that, but I won’t.  Obviously, you liked what you saw.

With that in mind, here is my updated countdown of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  Several new chapters have been added since last year’s countdown, and my opinions have, slightly, changed as to how I want to rank these chapters.  I hope that you enjoy what you read.

(If you read this special last year, feel free to skip to the bottom of this page to begin the countdown.  That’s because I’m just going to recycle the same article from last year.)

Of course, this is the Film Sage, not Cinema Blend or ScreenCrush.  Which means that we first have to address some observations and analyses that I have made of this popular genre.  Then, I’ll try to rank the Marvel Cinematic Universe (or, MCU) for your reading pleasure.
