Over the years, Marvel Comics have churned out some of the greatest characters ever to grace the pages of graphic novels. Many of them have gone on to become household names and popular with both kids and adults alike, transcending the pages of the comics they originated from. They’ve also spawned countless movies as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, many of which have been instant action blockbusters. In celebration of this awesome franchise, we’re looking at 5 of the greatest Marvel movies ever to have been made.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
After the success of the first installment of the new Captain America movies it was inevitable that he’d return again. This time we see him teaming up with fellow Avengers, Black Widow and The Falcon, to fight off the evil assassin. This film took over $700 million at the box office and got excellent reviews all round from both critics and fans.

Robert Downey Jr’s casting as Tony Stark, AKA Iron Man, was a stroke of genius. His witty and stylish interpretation of the character has made it a firm favourite and seen him reprise the role on multiple occasions now. But in our opinion, the original is still the best, as we see the billionaire build his iconic suit for the first time and turn into the Iron Man we all know and love.

The Incredible Hulk
One of the first movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, The Incredible Hulk saw Edward Norton take the role of The Hulk and Bruce Banner, helped by an all star cast which included Liv Tyler, Tim Roth, and William Hurt among others. It tells the story of how he got tracked down to a remote location in Brazil by the U.S. Army who want to use his powers to create an infallible army.

X-Men: The Last Stand
The Last Stand is the third of the X-Men movies in the current set of installments and probably the most spectacular. The special effects are out of this world, testament to the fact that at the time of making it was the most expensive film in history. It sees the X-Men battling with the decision of whether to relinquish their powers or not, and sets up an immense battle between the two sides.

Wolverine: X-Men Origins
It was only a matter of time before the brooding Wolverine got his own spin off series and this is the first installment of the trilogy. Though some people argue that the following two movies were better, this explained much of Wolverine’s backstory and introduced us to his character as a standalone hero.
If you think that Wolverine is the coolest character in the Marvel stable then show your love for him off with this brilliant piece of canvas art.
