#8 Thor: Ragnarok (2017)

Main Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Tessa Thompson, Cate Blanchett, Idris Elba and Jeff Goldblum.

Marvel decided to go in a completely different direction than its previous Thor films with Thor: Ragnarok, allowing director Taika Waitititi to take over and recreate Thor as a comedic character who instead of being too dumb to realize how out of touch he is, accepts his place in the world and relies on his skills to navigate it instead of expecting it to conform to his own desires. The film is decidedly more comedic than any previous Marvel film and it revels in its comedy, giving Thor ample opportunity to grow and change in his new role.

Thor: Ragnarok is one of the more uneven Marvel films, one that makes clear that even the best and most eclectic director is only able to make so many changes to one of these epic characters. But its highs and lows far outstrip its predecessors and the film added a new opportunity to the Marvel Cinematic Universe by including such a unique interpretation of its characters. Pushing outside the standard boundaries of what constitutes a hero and a Marvel film allows the series to branch out and appeal to a wider variety of fans. While the changes to its established status quo were not welcomed by everyone, Thor: Ragnarok is one of the most interesting films that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has to offer with its weird comedy, complex story, and unique sense of self that proceeded to echo through the rest of the films. – Katie Schaefer
