List Rules Marvel movies produced by Disney - not those by Fox, Sony, or others. Disney Marvel movies only.

Not all Marvel movies are Disney Marvel movies, as both Fox and Sony have played a large role in getting Marvel heroes onto the movie screen. But when it comes to Marvel films, Disney has truly perfected the formula. Which Disney Marvel movies really stand out and which ones were duds at the box office?

Below are all the released Marvel movies made by Disney since the original Iron Man, ranked by quality. Is the one you like not high on the list or do you see one ranked too high up? Feel free to voice your opinion and vote away! Maybe you think The Incredible Hulk is a better Disney Marvel movie than Guardians of the Galaxy.

Established with the first Iron Man movie, Disney produces Marvel movies under the Marvel Studios production company banner. The ranking for which movies are the best Marvel Studios productions is sure to change as more are released over the coming years.
