The Top Ten Post-Credit Scenes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

I haven’t done of these ranking posts in a while but after watching Ant-Man the other day and seeing the film’s second post-credits scene (which is the scene from Civil War when Falcon mentions recruiting Ant-Man) I got serious chills and a yearning to write this post. So, here we are, trying to rank ten out of many awesome post-credit scenes. Here we go.

10. Is Steve Rogers Still Alive?-What If…?

I may be in the minority here when I say that What If…? is one of the best entries in the entire MCU but I, personally, loved every second of it. The animation was gorgeous, perfectly illustrating the characters to make them feel almost lifelike, most of the actual actors were able to voice their characters which, of course, added extra depth to the story, and each week’s episode surprised me more than the last.

For this to be Marvel Studios’ first venture into animation they did a remarkable job.

And to end off the season we got another wonderful tease, that being Steve Rogers’ potential survival into next season. Will he be evil like Bucky or will the story take a different turn? Whatever the case, I’m excited to see what happens next for Captain Carter’s story.

9. Thanos’ Debut-The Avengers

Nine years ago a movie came out called The Avengers. It was an unprecedented achievement as it brought together six of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and shattered the box-office with its engaging story and iconic moments. The experiment that was the Marvel Cinematic Universe had paid off and from there it’s been quite the ride ever since.

But Kevin Feige had something greater in mind. An endgame that would lead to the highest-grossing film of all time thanks to a certain purple villain whose name would end up sending chills down the spine of any avid MCU fan; Thanos.

His first appearance in the MCU is small as he performs an out-of-character evil grin and simply side-eyes the camera with foreboding music playing in the background but for loyal comic book fans, they understood exactly what was coming. I, however, did not but after watching Infinity War I understood what the hype was about.

I’m Doing Another Marvel Marathon

Well, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is going to be in theaters a little less than two weeks from now and that means it’s time to do another Marvel marathon. That means I’ve got to get through twenty four movies in that time. It’s a bit daunting (especially that I’ve seen some of the Marvel films recently) but this is a personal task that’s always fun to perform before a new Marvel movie.

After starting the marathon on Wednesday I’ve just gotten through the franchise’s first phase and it was quite an interesting journey.

Iron Man

I don’t watch the first Iron Man film often so watching this movie was kind of fantastic. Yes, Terence Howard is still a terrible War Machine but that’s really the only con of the movie. The film is a perfect origin story for the character, the relationship between Tony and Pepper is super cute, and the nods to his journey’s end in Endgame definitely made me a bit wistful.

It was even exciting to see how much the Ten Rings organization factored into the film, especially before Shang-Chi.

All in all, I rekindled my appreciation for this film and I will definitely be raising it in my next Marvel movie ranking.

My Ten Favorite Loki Moments

Loki is honestly one of the greatest Marvel characters ever brought to the big screen, even when he was a sneaky villain who constantly did infuriating things he was so likable. After recently watching a Youtube video ranking Loki’s best moments I decided I might as well make my own list. So here it is. My ten favorite Loki moments.

10. “Get help.”

Thor: Ragnarok's "get help" scene was thought up by star Chris Hemsworth

While the movies established Loki and Thor as brothers they were portrayed as feuding brothers for most of their time together in the MCU but Thor: Ragnarok did give us a glimpse into their lives as children. The “Get help” is not only funny but so cute. I wish we could’ve had more time with them doing brotherly things but maybe we still can.

A ‘Loki’ Test

One thing I’ve always found so fascinating about Marvel Studios is their continuity skills. If you look at the sequel trilogy, the characters in The Force Awakens act completely differently in The Last Jedi (Hux and Poe being the prime examples for this fact.) And yet massive ensemble films like Infinity War manage to take every hero from their respective franchises and perfectly incorporate them, unique personalities and all, into the movie.

As I’ve watched Loki for the past three weeks I have thoroughly enjoyed the film but one thing I kept wondering to myself, did the show actually treat Loki like his 2012 self? And I have come to the conclusion that no, they didn’t. And that’s actually a good thing.

The Top Ten Most Memorable Moments in the MCU

Why is the MCU so beloved? Because we have been given 23 movies and two amazing series over thirteen years…and the ride isn’t ending anytime soon. I’ve been enthralled in this world since I was eleven-years-old, gazing wide-eyed at the screen as my parents would show me some scenes from Iron Man. At the time, he was my favorite superhero.

Now, all these years later, Doctor Strange is my favorite Marvel superhero and the MCU pretty much dominates my every day.

This franchise is wonderful for so many reasons but it also has some of the most memorable moments in recent blockbuster history. So today, I wanted to share what I think are the top ten most memorable moments in the MCU (and this includes even the Disney+ series.) Enjoy!

10. Wanda’s Iconic Credits Roll

WandaVision: Who is Pulling the Strings in Westview Aside from Wanda?

WandaVision was filled with a bunch of interesting and memorable moments but the moment that stuck out to me in the entire series was when Wanda, during a tense moment with her husband Vision, began to roll the credits of her show on him as if to say goodnight.

It is so diva and I have loved it ever since I first saw it.
