A Marvel fan is always crazy about MCU characters and MCU movies. The journey started with the release of Ironman in 2008 and since then we have seen so many amazing movies that brought our favorite comic characters and superheroes to life. All these years, through those awesome movies we have experienced plenty of heart pounding moments.
In this post we will be listing down our picks of best moments in MCU movies.
10 – The Appearance of Nick Fury, Iron Man (2008)
If you are a fan of the MCU movies, you are aware that you cannot leave the theatre before the credits begin rolling since doing so would cause you to miss the all-important post-credit sequence. Over the years, there have been lots of stingers that have caused people to scream, one example being the post credit scene of Iron Man 2 when agent Coulson see Thor’s hammer.
But Nick Fury’s cameo in the very first Iron Man movie is our absolute favorite, and it’s also one of the most significant ones. Fury is the link that connects all of the Avengers, and this sequence gave fans a glimpse of what was to come in the next instalments. Because of this moment, we were able to determine that this would not be a standalone superhero film. We were in for something bigger, and it turned out to be far more than we expected.
9 – Wakanda Forever, Avengers Infinity War (2018)
Fans were beyond excited when Black Panther was finally shown to them in the MCU movies. However, there was no way that any of us could have been ready for the tremendous thrill that came with Wakanda charging into combat against Thanos. Fans went completely crazy just because this particular moment is absolutely beautiful in every way, including the music, King T’Challa’s leadership, and the powerful war cry.
It is now bittersweet to see Chadwick Boseman in any of these MCU movies, but this scene manages to make us cry more than any of the others. This is such a powerful moment for T’Challa as well as for the whole nation of Wakanda. Wakanda forever!
8 – Cap Holds the Helicopter, Captain America : Civil War (2016)
Sometimes, a nice pair of biceps is all it takes to make fans go wild, and Captain America surely has them. A full-scale fight breaks out as Bucky Barnes, also known as The Winter Soldier, attempts to flee after being put into his brain-washed condition by a trigger.
There is a lot to be excited about in this encounter, but the moment that deserves to be called “the ultimate pause moment” is when Captain America uses his raw power alone to prevent Bucky’s chopper from escaping. It is an amazing display of strength, and the fact that he is looking terrific while he is doing it is a bonus.
7 – Thor Vs Hulk, Thor Ragnarok (2017)
We have arrived to one of the most joyful and wonderful scenes in the all of the MCU movies. Thor Ragnarök is easily one of the series’ funniest instalments. The events of Thor: Ragnarök signify the point in the story at which the character of Thor reaches his full potential. And the franchise finally began to capitalize on Chris Hemsworth’s comedy talents to their full potential.
However, at this scene, the movie also introduced us to the humorous potential that seem to be possible when they quipped Thor and Hulk together. This scene, which has the now-iconic line “We know each other, he is a friend from work!” is the ideal introduction to the wonderful dynamic that develops between Thor and the Hulk during the course of the film.
6 – Peter Parker’s Introduction, Captain America: Civil War (2016)
Speaking of Spider-Man, what do you think of Peter Parker’s debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Fans were unsure whether or not this particular event would take place. Sony was the owner of the cinematic rights to Spider-Man, and for a considerable amount of time, it looked like Marvel and Sony had come to an impasse in their negotiations.
Fortunately for fans, everything came together in February 2015, and we were able to see Spider-Man for the very first time in an MCU film. The decision to put Tom Holland in the role of Peter Parker was an excellent one. The wonderful mentor connection that will develop between Peter and Tony is established in the first scene. In addition, it was a lot of fun to see Peter Parker as a teenager react to being in the same place as actual superheroes during the fight at the airport.
5 – Hulk Smashes Loki, The Avengers (2015)
Mark Ruffalo made his Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) debut as the Hulk in the first Avengers movie, which was released in 2015, and he was an excellent choice for the role. The mild manner in which Ruffalo plays Dr. Bruce Banner only serves to make Banner’s transformation into an infuriated Hulk more compelling and tragic. However, this particular scene is nothing but awesome and funny.
When the Avengers are working to defeat Loki in the battle of New York, things come to a halt when Loki tries to speak down to the Hulk. Bad move Loki!
In the middle of his sentence, Hulk grabs the “puny god” and starts to smash him all over the place. Fans from all around the world broke out laughing, and it became one of those scenes that was replayed the most.
4 – I Am Iron Man, Iron Man (2008)
We almost ended up choosing Tony Stark’s extremely brave snap moment from Avengers: Endgame for this spot, but we had to choose the other extreme of this snap moment in order to highlight what makes it so fascinating in the first place. Tony Stark is, in so many respects, is the heart of the MCU movies.
At the conclusion of the first Iron Man film, Tony Stark is forced to decide whether he should conceal his identity or accept it. Naturally, he goes with the second option and reveals the truth in the most Tony Stark manner imaginable, just as the credits are about to begin rolling. One of the most genuinely unforgettable moments of MCU movies that also happens to be one of our favorites. Watch it on youtube.

3 – Super Team-up: 3 Spider-Mans, Spider Man: No Way Home (2021)
Ned’s effort to retrieve Tom Holland’s Peter Parker results in the accidental appearance of Andrew Garfield’s Spidey. This moment was so spectacular that it drove fans insane. The scenario reaches a new level of intensity, though, as Toby Maguire’s Spider-Man enters through the portal. Once the two Spider-Men share a room, we see how similar Peter Parkers of different verses may be. In addition, there is a short but fantastic web duel worth rewinding. After months of speculation and rumors that these two would appear in the MCU movies, their first meeting didn’t disappoint.
Later in the film the exchange that takes between the three Spider-Mans before the final battle, they take some time to learn more about each other and ask the questions we always wanted to. Not only are the lines very well-written, but each Spider-Man character is given the opportunity to shine.
2 – On Your Left: The Final Battle, Avengers Endgame (2019)
Endgame is filled with several heart-pounding scenes. But there is no better choice for this entry than the last fight. Particularly when Sam’s voice sputters into Captain America’s ears as he says “on your left”.
It is a fantastic call back to Sam and Captain’s initial encounter in The Winter Soldier, but it is much more than that. Witnessing the return of all the Avengers that Thanos had snapped away generated some of the greatest audience responses in cinema halls all over the world. The relief on Captain America’s face is apparent, and we feel it too.
1 – The Avengers Assemble For the First Time, The Avengers (2012)
The first Avengers film was a tremendous stride forward for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the main characters spent the most of the film at conflict. It takes a lot to get them together, but the waiting is well worth it when they finally do.
The shot is absolutely iconic. The music, the 360º swing, there is something striking about watching our superheroes united. We like seeing the Avengers together for whatever reason. Whether for a party in Tony’s tower or Shawarma after the battle. However, the first Avengers assemble moment still makes our hearts thump after all these years.
We hope you agree with our picks of best moments in MCU movies. If you think we missed something or a particular moment should on the Top 10 list, please share it in the comments.
