Greetings all! My name is Inviso, and today I'll be your host for the latest in #GauntletCrew entertainment and rankings. Over the past however many years, the Gauntlet crew has ranked every Disney movie, every Pixar movie, every Ghibli movie. We've ranked Sports movies, we've ranked Sci-Fi movies, we've ranked RomComs. We've ranked films from all over the world (albeit mostly the West), and on the heels of our completely LGBTQ+ movie list, it's time for our latest project.

Partially due to COVID providing a perfect cut-off point for the time being, and partially because we've felt that some of our rankings have been a bit too broad and might have frightened away new users who wished to participate, we're going with a new ranking this time that I hope can bring interest in from around the board, and not just from within our little Gauntlet Crew family. Without further ado, I am here to announce that this time around, we will be ranking the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The List:

Iron Man (2008)
The Incredible Hulk (2008)
Iron Man 2 (2010)
Thor (2011)
Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)
Marvel's The Avengers (2012)
-----
Iron Man 3 (2013)
Thor: The Dark World (2013)
Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
Ant-Man (2015)
-----
Captain America: Civil War (2016)
Doctor Strange (2016)
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017)
Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)
Thor: Ragnarok (2017)
Black Panther (2018)
Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018)
Captain Marvel (2019)
Avengers: Endgame (2019)
Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)

That's only 23 movies to watch and rank if you're interested, and we'd really like to get a bunch of new participants beyond our closeknit Gauntlet family. If you want to participate, send your ranking to [email protected]

For the ranking itself, please just provide a list of the movies ranked from 1 to 23, with 1 being your favorite, and 23 being your least favorite. Additionally, please include write-ups for each movie. They don't have to be super in-depth, but we like reading what other people think, and it helps to explain why one person might rank a film at 1, while another ranks it at 23.

The deadline for submissions is set at 1/31/21 for the moment. If you need an extension on getting your ranking in before that time, we'll see what we can do. Also, if you're interested in participating, please leave a comment in this topic, just so I know who to expect, and who to keep an eye out for as the deadline approaches.

Hopefully this can be a big, successful project, and I look forward to hearing from many of you soon.

Are write-ups for these generally about a paragraph or any specific length?

Whatever you want. Some of us are verbose, some of us aren't.

I think XIII has done this before too, like a year-ish ago? I think it was a bit after Endgame came out, I could be wrong.

Not that it hurts to do it again

I'll participate, and likely be made fun of for my taste and opinions.

Also, if anyone wants a nifty little tool to help with the ranking process, I found this thing.

Captain Marvel rented and watched! Thor free on demand and rewatched! Thor: The Dark World free and rewatching!

The biggest thing will be doing write-ups, XD

Of course the only one I haven't seen isn't on Disney+ (Incredible Hulk). Looks like that one and both Spider-Mans are the only ones absent.

Universal still partially has the rights to Hulk distribution so it's not surprising that it was omitted

I wonder if She-Hulk counts as a Hulk movie and if Universal is gonna get dibs on the Blu-Ray and Streaming rights?

Would it be OK if I joined please? I actually did something like this myself years ago, where I watched each film and wrote reviews for each one. That only went up to Guardians of the Galaxy because that was the newest film at the time, though I did go back later to add the next few up to Civil War. I would be interested in seeing if my order has changed by now, as well as adding the newer films.

As a non-American, I just want to make sure that I'm reading the closing date correctly, and that it's January 31st?

It technically was strictly current gauntlet members at that time, but then membership started dwindling and we wanted to open it up to more members and would accept anyone, but we didn't have as much advertisement. Stuck it mostly in our corner of the Discord and in our topic rankings.

Is it safe to include spoilers in the write-ups, or should we be avoiding those? With some of these movies, Im finding it difficult to discuss them without some spoilers.
