  1.  Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever falls just short of the top spot. It’s always hard for a sequel to live up to the original film, but Wakanda Forever didn’t fall short of that task at all. As an in-depth, impactful, and exhilarating film, this is by far one of the most popular recent Marvel movies. What can I say, Wakanda Forever!
