19 Times MCU Proved How Good Humor Is Important For A Great Superhero Movie

Comic book based films have been around for many decades now, and while traditionally they used to be relegated to a niche category, they became mainstream in the last ten odd years. The biggest force which not only made the comic book films popular all over the world but, also compelled other major studios to follow the trend, is Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Ten years ago, Marvel Cinematic Universe or MCU as it is popularly known, was launched with the Iron-Man movie. The film featured Robert Downey Jr. in the titular role and unleashed a winning streak of films that has continued unabated for  20 films over the period of one decade. Other studios like the Warner Bros. owned DC Films started making films based on the famous DC Comics, and there have been films from Fox and Sony as well, but, none really achieved the kind of success that the MCU did. Recently, Avengers: Infinity War released in theatres and shattered all box office records of its genre by earning over $2 billion world-wide. The reason why these films are so awesome is that despite the complex characters and serious/grim evil vs. good plots, Marvel has laced its films with enough humor to keep the audience giggling without going overboard and turning the films into comedies.

The colourful, bright film making of Marvel Studios has been more successful courtesy of the proportion of wit and humor that these films display.

Great MCU films are renowned for giving us edge of the seat adventures, but, at the same time, they also make us laugh. Here we have created a compilation of 19 instances where Marvel Cinematic Universe proved that great humor is essential to making a great superhero film. Take a look!
