Marvel Cinematic Universe Ranking Phase II

Since the last time I did this list there have been more films set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe so I saw fit to update that list ahead of the imminent release of the long awaited Avengers: Infinity War. I’ve altered some of the text on the entries that belonged to the previous list where…
