Top 5 Must See Epic Fight Scenes In The Marvel Cinematic Universe
Through 11 years, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has amassed quite a collection of epic moments. Starting with Tony Stark first donning the Iron Man suit and fighting his way out of a cave, the fight scenes have only grown bigger and showcased versatile moves and situations that range up to a fight for the universe. As the stories progress, the stakes only continue to rise, leading to grandiose showdowns with armies, or even in some cases. one-on-one fights. The following are the most epic fight scenes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe from the original Iron Man movie through Avengers: Endgame.
#5 – Avengers – Battle Of New York
The first team-up movie was also the most epic of the phase one MCU movies. The battle of New York saw a beaten down Avengers team reassemble and take on Loki leading the Chitauri. This fight gave us our first camera spin around the team and was the first time we saw them working together in a meaningful way. Cap and Thor showed how their abilities work together, and Hawkeye and Black Widow showed how they did belong in the fight, although they had no superpowers of their own.
#4 – Avengers: Infinity War – Battle of Wakanda
The battle of Wakanda revolved around protecting Shuri so she could extract the Mind stone from Vision so Scarlet Witch could safely destroy it before Thanos got a hold of it. Of course, things do not go to plan, and the Wakandan army lead by Black Panther along with Cap, Bucky, Falcon, War Machine, Black Widow, and Bruce Banner donning the Hulkbuster must take on the Chitauri and the children of Thanos. During this fight, Thor appears with Rocket, and Groot, wielding Stormbreaker as he singlehandedly takes out tons of Thanos’ army.
#3 – Thor: Ragnarok – Final Fight
Where the fight with Hulk saw a glimpse of Thor’s powers, this scene truly allows him to unleash his full potential. After unlocking his lightning powers and blasting Hela away, like the Wakanda battle, he singlehandedly takes out tons of her undead army. In this fight, Hulk punches a giant wolf off a waterfall into space, Valkyrie shows her sword skills, Loki uses his helmet as a weapon, and Heimdall and Korg get in on the action as well. All of this happening with the Immigration Song playing in the background makes it one of the most epic fights in all the MCU.
#2 – Avengers: Endgame – Cap Lifts Mjolnir
Captain America lifting Mjolnir was one of the moments every Marvel fan hoped we would see at some point. In Avengers: Age of Ultron, Steve got Mjolnir to budge a little when everyone was trying to lift it. Here, we see him pick up the mighty hammer, and with the powers of Thor now channeling through him, he saves Thor and puts up more of a fight against Thanos than he did in Infinity War. However, even with this, he is not a match for Thanos, and that leads us too…
#1 – Avengers: Endgame – Avengers Assemble
The final fight against Thanos was the ultimate battle that the MCU has been building up to for the last 11 years. Every single hero that has appeared in a Marvel movie in the past makes an appearance here to take on Thanos. The opening of this battle lasts so long alone just introducing everyone coming back for the final fight. For the first, and last time, we finally hear Captain America call out the iconic “Avengers assemble!” Simply put, too much happens in the fight to list here, and it is undoubtedly the most epic fight in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, let alone one of the most epic moments in any movie ever.
