X-Men was one of the first Marvel movies to come out that fans absolutely loved. In this world, the mutants, or evolved superhumans, are often discriminated against but when war looms, the world might change for this band of misfits.

Black Panther had so many fans flocking to their local movie theaters time and time again. The movie had a great release timing and fans saw power and community within the film. Many fans credit the release during Black History Month as one of the reasons this film was so powerful.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is one example of a sequel being better than the original. The movie picks up with Steve Rodgers as he's learning to deal with the modern world, looking for help by teaming up with Black Widow. But when the Winter Solider comes onto the scene, Steve finds himself with a new enemy that looks too familiar.

7 – Captain America: Civil War (2016)

Captain America: Civil War feels more like a full Avengers movie rather than just a Captain America movie, which is probably why so many fans love it. It follows the entire group as they make decisions about the fate of the group and the world, but when the group differs in opinions, they break off and end up fighting themselves.

8 – Avengers: Endgame (2019)

So many fans left the theaters with tears in their eyes, and it was very worth it for all of them.

9 – The Avengers (2012)
