Phase Three

Here are the top marvel movies in order which are released in phase three.

1. Captain America: Civil War

Another Critic Favourite in the form of a Captain America Movie is the Civil War. This movie is what it is for so many reasons. The complexity of emotions and the drift between the Avengers based on their differences on the New accord for superheroes and a Personal vendetta that crosses paths against a friendship.

Phase Four

Here are the top marvel movies in order which are released in phase four.

1. Black Widow

Natasha Romanoff, after an emotional sacrifice in avengers, we are only left with her memories. One of the most powerful female characters ever made, Black Widow got lucky enough to get a movie for herself. The character buildup and the haunting past, which were able to get a hint of in other Avengers movies, make seven more ready to glimpse the truth following her like a nightmare.

Everything she left behind after becoming a ruthless killer came back to her, as they never left, her family with a similarly wounded past and a bigger threat that no one of us expected to encounter.

Directed By:- Cate Shortland

IMDb rating:- 6.7/10

2. Shang-Chi And The Legend  of Ten Rings

It is a kind of superhero movie set in the background of well-known Asian culture and the legend of the Ten Rings. It is quite rare to see any Asian mythical story portrayed with great attention to detail. In the present day, Shang Chi is leading an everyday life with his best friend Katy, following a routine of valet service and the “nighttime party time” mantra of life. All this seems to end when soldiers of the Ten Rings group start to attack him for a specific purpose. Along with his best friend and sister, Shang Chi jumps right in the middle of an adventurous ride to get back to the path he truly is destined for.

Directed By:-  Destin Daniel Cretton

IMDb rating:- 7.4/10

3. Eternals

Eternals, the ancient extra celestial creatures wandering the earth for quite a while now, decide to take the front lead when there seems to be an unimaginable historical dark figure going to make its appearance named Deviants. The story is a follow back after Avengers Endgame, which is quite predictable from the opening monologues present in the trailers. Each of them with different special powers has hidden among the normal human crowd, either through becoming a Bollywood hero or getting married and settling down.

Directed By:- Destin Daniel Cretton

IMDb rating:- 7.4/10

4. Spider-Man: No Way Home

Spiderman: No way Home is the third franchise of the Spiderman Marvel universe. We were left with the anxiety of the last movie’s cliffhanger. The spider man’s reality was fully-fledged and exposed on every channel possible due to a curveball hit by Mysterio. Taking a breath of sigh is also not in Peter’s favor as it will also be taken as an offense by half of the crowd, although some understanding part of the population has got his back all the while.

While facing the consequences of the wish he made to Doctor Strange, Peter has a bit more than he can chew. While the whole world is cracking under the new threats from different timelines, there seems to be unexpected help on its way for Peter too.

Directed By:- Jon Watts
