With a blockbuster coming out this summer, Marvel is finally coming down to earth.
But in the case of the first Captain America movie, there’s no sign of a happy ending.
The final Captain America film has already become one of the most divisive movies of the decade.
It’s been a rollercoaster ride for the superhero franchise, with critics, audiences and even some of the biggest names in film history criticizing its lack of originality and overreliance on the usual cast of familiar faces.
In honor of the final movie, IGN has compiled our favorite, most memorable and most polarizing moments from the MCU so far.
Check out the full list of our favorite MCU movies below, and be sure to head over to IGN.com/film to read our reviews of all the new films.
The End is Nigh: This is a movie that will forever change the way we think about how films should be made.
It was directed by Tim Burton, and features a lot of recognizable characters, from Iron Man to the Falcon.
In the wake of the death of one of those iconic characters, Chris Evans is forced to make a tough decision.
As he watches Captain America and Falcon, Evans struggles to balance being a hero, protecting those who can’t protect themselves, and trying to get to the bottom of the Falcon’s crimes.
Chris Evans will never be the same.
Black Panther: While Chris Evans does a fantastic job of making the film, the cast is incredibly limited, as is the scope of the story.
While there are some interesting moments in the film — like when we see a young Black Panther get into a car with a cop, and later, when the Falcon steals a plane — it really feels like they’re not fully exploring the world of Wakanda in this film.
Avengers: Age of Ultron: The Avengers may have finally gotten a big break, but they still haven’t done much with their core group.
While their movies tend to feature a ton of team work, the Avengers are often just as much a side character in their own movies as the heroes on the team.
This is the first movie to take place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so they’ll get a little more attention.
Captain America: Steve Rogers is back.
Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is an ex-superhero, a soldier and a former spy.
After being shot by the Mandarin (played by Joe Manganiello), Steve’s life is turned upside down, and he finds himself forced to fight alongside his former teammates, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), in an attempt to stop the Black Panther.
Iron Man 3: While Iron Man 3 is a fairly standard superhero movie, its lack thereof is what really makes it stand out.
While the world is looking for a savior, Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is determined to turn his back on his son.
When Tony Stark’s company is attacked by Ultron, Tony and his new friend, Iron Man (Robert Redford), are forced to put aside their differences and work together to save the world.
The Avengers: Age Of Ultron: With the help of Captain America (Chris Hemsworth), Hawkeye, Thor (Chris Banner), The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Black Widow and other heroes, the heroes and villains of the Marvel Universe band together in a bid to stop a catastrophic event that could destroy the entire planet.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.
2: With Captain America returning, this is the last big Marvel movie before the Avengers team up with the Guardians of the Solar System.
While Thor and The Hulk are joined by the rest of the team, their quest takes a dark turn when the Guardians begin to plot their revenge on their old enemy.
Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them: This movie is a bit of a mess.
It starts off strong with a bang, and ends with the movie going off the rails.
However, the end is bittersweet.
The movie’s biggest character, Newt Scamander (Gaten Matarazzo), is a character we know and love.
He and his family are brought to Earth to help rebuild a civilization that’s been destroyed by the villainous Quicksilver (Aaron Taylor-Johnson).
The film’s tone shifts between a more action-packed first act and an even more emotional second.
Men in Black 3: After the death in a plane crash of his best friend, Steve Rogers, Steve’s former best friend and now best friend’s husband, the only way to deal with the loss is to make his death permanent.
However he finds out he’s not the only one affected by the accident.
After discovering that a new group of superheroes, led by the Black Lantern (David Ayer), is on the hunt for him, Steve and the team must travel through time and space to save themselves from an impending threat.
Ant-Man: This isn’t the best movie ever made, but Ant-
