There is something about a movie trilogy that just feels right. A movie and a sequel are nice, and a rare quartet of films is cool, but there is just something clean about a trilogy that separates itself from the rest of the pack.
You have The Lord of the Rings, a trilogy of Star Wars trilogies, Sam Rami’s Spider-Man, Christopher Nolan’s Batman, and many more. Now, we are 32 movies into Marvel’s Cinematic Universe and there are five trilogies that span all the way from the original Iron Man in 2008 to the most recent MCU release, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
I chose not to include the Thor and the Avengers movies on this list because both titles have four installments, but it is safe to say that this list would look very different if I had. Anyway, here are the five MCU trilogies ranked from worst to best.
