Ranking The Hollywood Reporter's Ranking of Every Marvel Comics Movie

Spider-Man 3 sucks

“Oh no! Even though THR forgot how bad I was, EL is darkening my bad name again!”

The Hollywood Reporter put together a ranking of every Marvel movie ever made. I mean ever. Roger Corman is included. So is “Man-Thing,” a 2005 film I didn't even know existed

All in all, it's not a bad list. It was put together by John DeFore, Leslie Felperin, and Jordan Mintzer, and my main beefs, off the top of my head, would be:

  • “Guardians of the Galaxy” should be higher
  • “Spider-Man 3” should be much, much lower 

Aw, fuck it. Here's their ranking, and mine, sorted by the difference between us. (I've eliminated the seven or so Marvel movies I haven't seen: the “Blade” movies and the like.) Links go to my reviews.

The movies at the top are the ones THR ranked higher; at the bottom, the ones I ranked higher. Your results will vary. 

THR MOVIE ME DIFF
24 Spider-Man 3 35 11
9 Avengers: Age of Ultron 18 9
20 Hulk (2003)  29 9
26 X-Men: The Last Stand 34 8
13 The Amazing Spider-Man 20 7
12 Deadpool 17 5
8 Ant-Man 12 4
5 Spider-Man 8 3
27 Daredevil  30 3
30 Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vegeance 33 3
29 Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer 31 2
1 The Avengers 2 1
3 Iron Man 4 1
4 Captain America: The Winter Soldier 5 1
10 Captain America: The First Avenger 11 1
14 X-Men: Days of Future Past 15 1
21 Iron Man 3 22 1
22 The Amazing Spider-Man 2 23 1
7 X-Men 7 0
16 The Wolverine (2013) 16 0
2 Spider-Man 2 1 -1
15 Iron Man 2 14 -1
25 X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009) 24 -1
33 Elektra 32 -1
6 X-Men 2 3 -3
28 Ghost Rider 25 -3
31 Fantastic Four (2005) 28 -3
17 Thor 13 -4
23 Thor: The Dark World  19 -4
11 Guardians of the Galaxy 6 -5
32 Fantastic Four (1994) 26 -6
35 Captain America (1990) 27 -8
18 The Incredible Hulk 9 -9
19 X-Men: First Class 10 -9
34 Fantastic Four (2015) 21 -13

Yeah, that's right. I'll go out on a limb that FF2015 wasn't great but it's not nearly as bad as everyone's making it out to be. I think it's the best of the FFs. Low bar, I know. 

Mostly, though, I agree with THR.
