Despite what some critics might say, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is not just a long string of epic fight scenes tied together by the loose threads of a plot - but that doesn’t mean the MCU is lacking epic fight scenes. Modern-day superhero flicks have a lot more depth and nuance than those of generations past, but the large-scale, superpowered fights remain a third act staple - and fans wouldn’t have it any other way.
While many of the most memorable brawls in MCU history take the form of ensemble encounters - like the airport throwdown or Endgame’s climactic clash - it has also had its fair share of notable one-on-one fights. Unlike the more sprawling scenes, where the focus is on spectacle, one-on-one superhero fights bring more personal drama and emotion to the table. Arguing about which superheroes would be able to beat up the others is a classic playground discussion, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe has managed to adapt the concept to the big screen time and time again.
