With Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe now concluded following the recent release of Ant-Man, audiences can now look forward to the epic-looking Phase 3.
Both Phase 1 and 2 have incorporated six films each, but the third phase of the franchise will have a whopping ten offerings for us all to enjoy.
Everyone has their opinions about the best films so far – generally, the likes of Iron Man 2, Thor: The Dark World and The Incredible Hulk are thought of as the worst movies in the franchise, while the likes of Iron Man, The Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Soldier are considered to be among the best.
But what about the decuplet of upcoming movies? In this article, we're going to take a look at Phase 3 of the MCU and predict how good its movies will be by ranking them from what we believe will be worst to best, starting with the worst.
The Untitled Spider-Man Film
Marvel Studios have got comic movie movies down to a T now – heck, anyone who can make successful live adaptations of Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy deserves a medal – so we really don't think any of Phase 3's movies will be bad, it's just a case of picking which one will be the least good.
Sadly, that accolade falls to Spider-Man.
Billy Elliot the Musical star Tom Holland has been cast in the titular role in the as-yet-untitled 2017 reboot – though he will appear first in Captain America: Civil War – and it will probably underwhelm a few people. The youngster is very talented, but Spider-Man has been done to death (five movies in total since 2002) and it's getting a little boring.
Either Marvel Studios will skip the origin of the character and it will feel rushed, or they'll do the origin again and it will be boring.
Regardless, the likelihood is that it will be the least well-received movie in the third phase of the MCU.
