Only one I can think of is The Incredible Hulk. Possibly Ant-Man in a few years.

None really. There are the ones I never liked(The Incredible Hulk and Iron Man 2) and the ones I have always liked. I don't think my opinion has gone down for any of them. Infact for most it just goes up.

The very first MCU film Iron Man (2008), I guess?

The daily technology used in Iron Man (2008) as I remembered, easily determines how old it is.

Most of them.

No memorable villains.

No memorable soundtrack.

Almost no memorable epic set pieces. The only ones that I liked were a few scenes from Iron Man 1, Winter Soldier, partially Avengers and GotG. That's 4 of 17 movies that I watched.

Thor and Ant Man were the worst. Thor 1 and 2 don't even matter since the 3rd became a parody comedy movie.

I liked Norton's Hulk more. He has more character presence than Ruffalo. He can probably match RDJ or Evans.

If you're talking about CGI then it's actually the Captain American the First Avenger. Some of that green screen in the montage is really, really, offputting.

If you're talking about story and characters then that's a more subjective answer. For me, it's:

Darcy in Thor 1 and 2 (a character I want to scrub from the timeline)
Stane's end in Iron Man 1 when he could easily have becoming a continuing nemesis for Tony
Practically everything Pepper related in how she speaks to Tony in Iron Man 2 and 3 (rewatch those films and you'll see she absolutely zero respect for him as a person)
Odin in Thor 2. One-eye didn't learn a thing from the first film and caused most of the problems once the Aether showed up again.

Probably Incredible Hulk and Thor. Everything else is pretty good, even today. Darcy ruined the first Thor, and the fact that Norton was dropped kind of ruins the Incredible Hulk for me now.

I honestly can't think of any. I suppose the CGI in the first couple is a tiny bit outdated but not VERY noticeably so.

@heroup2112: Same. I mean Iron Man was released a decade ago and that film looks fine I think. I know VFX tech has improved over the ten years the MCU started, but it’s not so much that these films look outdated to me.

I'm doubtlessly in the minority here, but I actually preferred the design of 2008's The Incredible Hulk over the post-Avengers one. On that note, none of them have particularly aged "badly" imo. TFA have a few glaring issues, but I think that might more be attributed to its style

Most of them? I mean, that happens when you regurgitate the same formula again and again.

I rewatched Iron Man recently, and because of that I couldn't enjoy it as much as I did once.

I don’t think outdated is the best word to describe what has happened and will happen to some of the MCU films. IMO it’s not that they become “outdated”, but that they become forgettable. Movies like Thor, Thor: The Dark World, Iron Man 2 and Iron Man 3 easily become forgotten in the huge MCU. It’s not that they’re particularly outdated but that after so many other movies they become lost in the mix.

The one that has aged the worst is clearly Cap TFA it's almost laughable at some parts and I'm not just talking about the CGI.

Thor 1 and TFA fall apart now. For me they did before too but people liked them...

Iron Man 1 is still solid.

We’ll need to wait longer to see. A lot of them from phase 1 look old though tbh. But the others are fine.

The Incredible Hulk for sure. It has a lengthy list of plot threads that never got resolved and characters who've been abandoned. On top of that, it's the only MCU movie I'd describe as a true failure. In every other MCU movie, I can at least see some redeeming value, I see none in The Incredible Hulk.

@modernww2fare: The final battle in New York. Scenes like this:

Loading Video...

It's not horrible, but it just is nowhere as good as we thought back in 2012.

The Incredible Hulk mainly due to Samuel Stern's character going nowhere (That Gamma entering his brain, but he never materializes anywhere else), Betsy Ross being useless, and the CGI looking like terrible PS2 Cut scenes. It doesn't help that the transition from Norton to Ruffalo was jarring at first, and Norton was clearly phoning his performance in due to lack of satisfaction with the script. There are moments where Hulk and Blonsky's CGI look blotchy and imperfect, and the fight scenes seem really small scale in comparison to latter Hulk scenes.

Yeah... Avengers & Thor are the worst victims of aging so far.

Besides ones that weren't good to begin with? Incredible Hulk, though to be fair, I'm sure it was assumed there would be a sequel at some point

None of them so far. Well, maybe Hulk just cause it doesn't flow as well with the rest of the MCU.

I kindof suspect the Guardians movies wont age that well though, just cause a lot of the humor in both of them are very pop-culture related.

I think Avengers has aged the worst, so much of that was the novelty of it.
