Captain America is one of the most iconic characters in the MCU, and his standalone movies are incredible. Take a look at how we rank the three entries.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has grown exponentially since first launching with Iron Man back in 2008, and though so much has changed since Robert Downey Jr. first put on his iconic suit, the original movies in Phase One will forever have a special place in our hearts.
In the first phase, we also got the first installments of the Thor, Hulk, and Captain America movies, as well as the very first Avengers film. If Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is still your favorite Avenger to this day, chances are you’ve seen all three of the Captain America movies multiple times.
The Captain America movie series kicked off in 2011 with Captain America: The First Avenger, which was followed up by its sequels, Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014) and Captain America: Civil War (2016). Evans has been applauded for his performance, which brings honor, humor, and all-around greatness to the superhero.
In the MCU, Captain America quickly captured the hearts of viewers upon his introduction with his unwavering sense of justice and selflessness. The character is a symbol of hope and perseverance, and he inspires people all around the world to stand up for what’s right. What sets him apart from other superheroes in the MCU and beyond is his morals. He’s willing to do whatever it takes to protect the innocent and fight against evil, even if it means sacrificing his own life. He’s a true hero in every sense of the word.
In addition to his heroism, Captain America has also played a significant role in the Avengers team. He’s a natural leader for the other members of the team. Each Avenger brings something special and different to the group, and Steve Rogers’ strengths are very apparent in each movie he’s appeared in.
