19. The Marvels

The Marvels may have been marketed as a fun adventure in the MCU but it was more important than it appeared. Among the reasons for that is that it was the first MCU project to significantly feature characters who originated in the Disney Plus shows in leading roles. The merger worked very well, as WandaVision‘s Teyonah Parris and Ms. Marvel‘s Iman Vellani joined Brie Larson in the long-awaited Captain Marvel sequel.

The titular trio of heroes teamed up to take on the vengeful Dar-Benn, who was destroying the resources of the people Carol Danvers loved. While the villain herself left a bit to be desired, we’ll give her credit for bringing Carol, Kamala Khan, and Monica Rambeau together because they make one hell of a trio.

The Marvels is just 100 minutes of pure unadulterated fun. It doesn’t take itself too seriously and is there simply to entertain – something that it accomplishes from start through finish. With the MCU venturing into an era of more serious and convoluted stories, we needed this one to remind us just how fun superhero movies can be. Honestly, this is the most Marvel that Marvel has felt in some time. And I love this movie so much for that!
