21. Ant-Man

Before Ant-Man hit theaters, the character was very much considered the outcast of the MCU. Now, obviously a lot of people didn’t feel this way but, it’s hard to deny that in a world full of super soldiers, iron men and skilled assassins, the concept of an ant-man sounds a little, well, redundant. Well, if you were one of those people that felt that way, then you were wrong.

With a family-centric story and a goofy premise, Ant-Man is an example of the MCU’s light-heartedness at its finest. It’s fully aware of the fact that nobody is going to take it seriously and, as a result, it doesn’t take anything seriously.

It’s incredibly funny, a little baffling and completely enjoyable – and the eclectic mix of characters really make it something special.

That said, the villain, Darren Cross, is without a doubt one of the most bland and one-dimensional villains to ever rear his head in a superhero movie. But as dull villains were, at one point, a recurring theme for the MCU, we’ll not single out Ant-Man for it – especially when Cross doesn’t feature too much. That said, the film is at its most enjoyable whenever he’s not on-screen.
