Top 10 best Darkest Movies in the MCU, Ranked

Spider-Man: Homecoming 

Spider-Man isn't the superhero most deeply associated with, especially since the first dedicated Spider-Man film in the MCU chooses not to use Uncle Ben's death as the inciting moment.

Iron Man 3

As Eldritch Killian was, unfortunately, the weakest villain in the Iron Man movies, Iron Man 3 instead focused on the darkness of its protagonist.

Black Panther

Black Panther is a tense and unpredictable film, but what makes it one of the darkest movies in the MCU is that the film's low point is one of the most brutal in cinema.

Avengers: Age Of Ultron 

Avengers: Age of Ultron's plot of an all-powerful AI determined to wipe out humanity to save Earth is already dark in its implications, but the film is also littered with ominous moments.

Spider-Man: No Way Home

For fans who thought that Tom Holland's Peter Parker managed to escape the agony of losing a loved one due to Uncle Ben's curiously absent-mindedness.

Captain America: Civil War

If the first Avengers movie was an optimistic display of what heroes can do when united against a common enemy.

Avengers: Endgame

Any film that begins after a tragedy on an unprecedented scale is likely to be darker and Avengers: Endgame doesn't surprise in that area.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier 

Unlike Nayak, who epitomizes bravery and patriotism and even takes time to record PSA for school children.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2

The Guardians of the Galaxy movies have a reputation for glee in the MCU, so it's odd that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 also happens to be one of the darkest.

Avengers: Infinity War

When it comes to haunting moments, Avengers: Infinity War still ranks above all other MCU movies.
