Spiderman Homecoming is a very lighthearted teenage comedy movie which has one of the best villains on Marvel in the Vulture. Jon Watts had a great challenge of getting a young actor to play Spiderman/ Peter Parker and make him look like the best version of the superhero. Also, he does a great job of storytelling in the MCU set up.

Doctor Strange is one of the more amusing outings from the recent past in the MCU. Scott Derrickson deserves some credit for getting the science part right in the movie. The presence of Bennedict Cumberbatch takes the film as a worthy Doctor Strange.

Louis Letterier falls on the number 11 list for the best entertainers in the MCU. The loss done by the film was later compensated by Mark Ruffalo playing the Hulk in the Avengers and also in the upcoming Thor Ragnarok movie. There will be no solo hulk movie in the MCU as rights of the character belong to Universal.

# 12 Alan Taylor: Thor The Dark World

Thor The Dark World was a noteworthy project but did not do the wonders that Alan Taylor would have imagined it to. The movie still contained a reality Stone so the aether will feature in the future Avengers Infinity Wars movies. Alan Taylor falls last in the best directors list in the MCU.
