5 Funny Marvel Cinematic Universe Movies To Watch

In these troubled times where we've been quarantined to our homes because of COVID-19, everybody could use a laugh. So, I thought I'd share 5 of the funny Marvel Cinematic Universe films. All except for Ant-Man and the Wasp are available on Disney+. It should be noted that Ant-Man and the Wasp is currently available on Netflix, so you can still stream it.

I absolutely love Ant-Man and it is one of my favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe. While Guardians of the Galaxy brought a more humorous tone to the universe, Ant-Man was really the first all out comedy. I defy you to not laugh listening to one of Luis's stories. They will have you in stitches.

Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy was the first Marvel film that really relied heavily on humor. While more of a space opera than all out comedy, there are many comedic scenes. Chris Pratt was perfect as a goofy yet confident Star Lord and leader of this motley crew. The movie also made a talking racoon and tree work to such a great degree that has made them household names. And, much of this is due to the humor built in.

Ant-Man and the Wasp

Billed as Marvel Studios's first romantic comedy, Ant-Man and the Wasp pays reverence to the screwball comedies of yore. To the mix of the romantic comedy, they add a It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World aspect in terms of the race to get the Pym laboratory building. The result is a hilariously mad-cap romp through the streets of San Francisco.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

By the time Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 rolled about, Marvel had become quite comfortable with being able to use humor to its advantage. And, so, the sequel, while still retaining that space opera feel, also brought in a lot of humor. The relationship between Drax and Mantis is probably the best example of this. Also, having Groot as a baby added to the comedy quite a bit.

Thor: Ragnarok

Thor always had an identity crisis not knowing the exact tone to take with the God of Thunder. But, with Thor: Ragnarok, they hit pay dirt by playing into the bravado of Thor. His relationship with Hulk brings in a great element of humor. Casting Jeff Goldblum as a goofy version of the Grandmaster was nothing short of brilliant as he brings a great deal of laughs to the film. Also, the recreation of the events of the end of Thor: The Dark World in play form is one of the most delightful things you see.
