Well, how often do you get the opportunity of directing a comic book movie? There aren’t many films made about it. And not every franchise is released on the big screen so we would say that quite a few. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has already won accolades for the most entertaining and successful box office productions. So here we will have a look at the best directors in the MCU so far
#1 Anthony And Joe Russo: Captain America Civil War And Avengers Infinity Wars
The Russo brothers are the names behind some great recent movies like Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Civil War and even the most awaited Avengers Infinity War installments. The Russo brothers rank top on the best directors list in the MCU.
#2 Joss Whedon The Avengers And Avengers: Age Of Ultron
Joss Whedon can be credited for pretty much starting all the non-solo hits in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He is the one for helming The Avengers and Avengers Age Of Ultron. Joss Whedon can be credited to get the storming box office success for multi-starer comic book films.
# 3 Joe Johnston Captain America: The First Avenger
Joe Johnston is the best directors for comic book movies as far as launching solo comic book hero movies. Joe can also be credited for casting Chris Evans and the movie also had an impressive villain in the Red Skull.
# 4 Shane Black Iron Man 3
The 3rd part of the worthy Iron Man series was directed by Shane Black. Black deserves all the accolades for taking up a big project like Iron Man 3 after the aftermath success of the Avengers and turning into a stylised Marvel outing featuring technology and Robert Downey Jr. he is one of the best directors just for director Downey Jr alone!
# 5 Jon Favreau – Iron Man and Iron Man 2
Jon Favreau deserves a lot of credit for getting us Robert Downey Jr plays the most iconic and well known cinematic character in Tony Stark aka Iron man. he also plays the role of Happy Hogan in various Marvel crossovers and Iron Man films so he is still in the MCU.
# 6 Jon Watts Spiderman Homecoming
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.
# 7 James Gunn Guardians Of Galaxy Vol 2 and Guardians Of Galaxy
Guardians Of Galaxy movies are known to be the rock concert time stylised musical comedy which has made its own safe place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The credits for direction here goes to James Gunn, he also deserves to be on the list, although he does not rank as high as the other big directors.
# 8 Peyton Reed Ant Man
The Ant-Man is a pretty underrated movie, but due credit to Peyton Reed for such an entertaining movie based well on science fiction as the other films in the MCU. Also kudos to the film maker for casting Paul Rudd as Ant Man.
# 9 Scott Derrickson: Doctor Strange
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.
# 10 Kenneth Branagh Thor
The Thor solo film outing was not as big as a hit as Iron man series. The movie has been directed by Kenneth Branagh and for that the film maker falls in the botton list of the best directors in the MCU.
# 11 Louis Leterrier The Incredible Hulk
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.
