After COVID-19 stole all of 2020 from fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, 2021 saw arguably the biggest year yet for the MCU.
When the COVID-19 pandemic struck the world in full force in 2020, much of the movie universe grinded to a halt. The Marvel Cinematic Universe was one of many entertainment juggernauts that had to postpone releases due to theaters being closed, or production on projects having to be halted due to COVID-19 guidelines.
Before the pandemic hit, the last Marvel Cinematic project we received was in July of 2019 with Spider-Man: Far From Home. The next film in the franchise, Black Widow, was supposed to release the following May, but was ultimately pushed all the way back to July of 2021.
So when the first Marvel Cinematic Universe project released in January of this year with WandaVision, fans were elated. It was the beginning of an absolutely humongous year for the MCU in which nine different projects were released.
2021 brought us the launch of phase four for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Adding to the films fans were accustomed to receiving every year, there was a new wrinkle with the MCU. For the first time, the MCU headed to the small screen with five different television shows debuting on Disney Plus.
As it is with all things, some of the things we received from the Marvel Cinematic Universe were better than others. And this post will rank what I think the best entry of the nine was all the way down to what I thought the worst of the nine was. Due to Venom: Let There Be Carnage not being tied into the MCU until the end credits scene, it is not being included in this post.
