After the conclusion of the grand and unprecedented event that was the Infinity Saga, with ‘Avengers: Endgame‘ and ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home‘, the fans of Marvel they have already checked out all the productions of the so-called Phase 4 of Casa das Ideias and many people wonder if the studio managed to maintain the level of the films from the previous phases.
Then closed with ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever After‘, the intention of Phase 4 in the infamous MCU was not forwarding the stories to ‘kang dynasty‘ and ‘secret wars‘, like the first films of the Marvel did with ‘Avengers‘, who thinks that is wrong.
The real intention of Kevin Feige, CEO of Marvel, was to make movies that could solve themselves, and add a thing or two to be used up front. That’s why we didn’t have so many interconnected things, which ended up making fans calm down a little bit about it.
Which is good on the one hand and bad on the other, as many of these new projects weren’t very popular, with people saying that the Marvel he had lost his hand for delivering very simple films that basically bet on raw entertainment, but without exciting as in the past.
Thus, we list here the films of the Phase 4, from the worst to the best of this selection – we left out the series. We talk about which were the weakest titles and which ones pleased the public in general. Also mention which ones are your favorites. Let’s go!
7 – eternal (2021)
🇧🇷eternal‘ is your typical love it or hate it movie. Marvel’s most daring and ambitious project, at an aesthetic and narrative level, since it is a strange being among so many other similar productions. the filmmaker Chloe Zhao adapted in a very particular way the original work of Jack Kirbypopularized by Neil Gaiman🇧🇷 He made a serious film, betting on elemental forces, diversity and concepts even similar to those approached by DC. However, the feature ended up being rejected by Marvel fans, who labeled the feature as boring and too long.
6 – Black Widow (2021)
The exact opposite of ‘eternal🇧🇷Black Widow‘ is what you can call more of the same, the typical Marvel Universe movie that really looked like it was made for TV – in this case, released directly to Disney +, due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh they are very well, thank you, however, the plot more of the same that explored a spy story and theories of the communist regime did not excite, and the film ended up being forgotten shortly afterwards. Relegated to the category of productions released directly for streaming.
5 – Thor: Love and Thunder (2022)
🇧🇷Thor: Ragnarok‘, which was led by Taika Waititi, ended up completely changing the tone that was being built by the franchise, and pleasing a lot for the total narrative insanity and the director’s infamous jokes. However, for many,Thor: Love and Thunder‘ passed the point, at the level of any feature script spun being hindered by the amount of dull jokes. Even the long-awaited villain of Christian Bale ended up being relegated to the background, to the detriment of creating more escapists and moments that promised to excite, but never do.
4 – Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022)
After the world went crazy with the third Spider-Man movie, everyone was dying to see what it would be like ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness‘, the first Marvel film directed by Sam Raimi, the iconic director behind the original Spider-Man trilogy. However, even working with the concept of the multiverse and traveling through several worlds, the second Doctor Strange film did not seem to have a solid story, being filled with (good) scenes without much purpose and having a long and bloated duration, without as much need or Weight. It’s fun and has good ideas, but it fell short in many ways.
3 – Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021)
The first act ofShang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings‘ is without a doubt one of the best things ever made by Marvel, with an engaging origin story, well structured, fun and filled with well thought out scenes and perfectly choreographed fights. However, already in the second act, the feature falls a little and only at the end of the third that it returns to bring more interesting situations. Despite this, the film is quite satisfactory, Simu Liu and Awkwafina kick ass and director Destin Cretton excelled to the point of winning the role of helming the next ‘Avengers🇧🇷
two – Black Panther: Wakanda Forever After (2022)
🇧🇷Black Panther: Wakanda Forever‘ turned out to be a nice addition to the MCU, especially after recent films that are doubtful to say the least. Even though it doesn’t have the same weight as its predecessor, the film involves us in celebrating the nostalgic power of memory and the ones that are gone, reminding us that, even if we fall, we manage to get up stronger and ready to return to the field of war. It has a very positive balance in general and stands out as one of the best moments of the famous Phase 4.
1 – Spider-Man: Never Go Home (2021)
🇧🇷Spider-Man: Never Go Home‘ is the closest we had to the great catharsis provided by the best films of marvel studios🇧🇷 With a simple script, but fulfilling a true dream, by bringing all three Cabeça de Teia to a single film, the feature grossed billions and made many people get emotional in the movie theaters. What should be the farewell of Tom Holland of the Masked Arachnid, was the highlight of Phase 4, and was also responsible for bringing the general public to theaters after the pandemic. And also the most interesting compared to the others mentioned.
