From the Battle of New York (in the conclusion of the first “Avengers”) to the final confrontation against Thanos in “Endgame”, return on the 5 most epic fights of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In 26 feature films and 5 series (so far), the Marvel Cinematic Universe has given us countless epic moments and heroic battles. However, some clashes – which usually bring together an exceptional number of characters – are even more impressive than others. From Civil War to Endgame, take a look back at 5 particularly breathtaking battles in the MCU.
The Battle of New York
In 2012, the Avengers reunite for the very first time at the call of Nick Fury, to fight against the dreaded Loki and his hordes of Chitauri warriors. This epic clash takes place in the heart of Manhattan, the first real climax of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, awaited by fans for many years.
The opportunity for Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Black Widow, and Hawkeye to draw the sword (the bow or the shield) together, and to learn to overcome their internal quarrels to save the world as a team.
It’s the war! But this time it’s internal. After battling side by side on numerous occasions, the Avengers find themselves here divided into two distinct camps. That of Tony Stark, who advocates security at all costs, even if it means accepting that the actions of his team are curbed by the nations of the world. And that of Captain America, defender of freedom against all odds, who wants to maintain his independence. Beyond these vast debates, the many suspicions around Bucky Barnes finish igniting the powders.
The result: one airfield, two teams, and no limit. On the one hand, Iron Man, Black Widow, Vision, Black Panther, Spider-Man, and War Machine. On the other, Captain America, the Falcon, Wanda Maximoff, Ant-Man, the Winter Soldier, and Hawkeye.
All against Thanos
Anything goes to stop Thanos and stop his plan! As the Mad Titan threatens to wipe out half of the universe’s inhabitants after securing the 6 Infinity Stones, the Avengers travel through space and recruit new members to save the world once again.
In an attempt to wrest Thanos his precious Infinity Gauntlet, the combined talents of Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, Star-Lord, Drax, and Mantis will not be too much. Visually dazzling, extremely effective, the sequence has everything to delight Marvel fans.
The Battle of Wakanda
While part of the Avengers tries to stop Thanos on Titan, the others are already ready to welcome him to Earth according to Wakanda customs. That is to say with formidable warriors armed to the teeth, a battle cry to make any enemy tremble, and some significant assets.
Arrived as scouts on the planet, the hordes of Thanos immediately find someone to talk to against Black Panther, Captain America, Wanda, Bucky Barnes, Bruce Banner, and all the Wakandan forces united. It must be said that the stakes are high since it is quite simply a question of preventing the annihilation of half the universe.
The final battle
Everyone on deck for the ultimate showdown against Thanos! While we believed they definitely went up in smoke at the end of Infinity War, the Avengers who had been pulverized by the “snap” of the Mad Titan are back alongside their allies of yesteryear to solve the problem once and for. all.
During this sequence (which we can undoubtedly consider the most spectacular in the history of the MCU), we can thus see fighting together, and in bulk: Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, Thor, Hulk, Hawkeye, Ant-Man, the Wasp, War Machine, Nebula, Rocket Racoon, Captain Marvel, Okoye, Pepper Stark aka “Rescue”, Gamora, Star-Lord, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, Black Panther, Wanda Maximoff, the Falcon, Bucky Barnes, Valkyrie, Groot, Mantis, Drax, Wong, M’Baku, Korg, Miek, Shuri and Howard the Duck.
Are we forgetting someone?
