In the ever-growing MCU franchise, there have been 14 directors of its feature films to date. They will soon be joined by the directing duo of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, who are directing Captain Marvel together, but how do the other directors to date stack up?
They are a highly interesting and varied bunch, with TV-show creators, famous screenwriters, indie filmmakers and even a horror maestro in there, making this maybe the most diverse franchise director line-ups of them all. The MCU films have been criticized for their 'flat' visuals and their director is praised less than other elements, but is this criticism deserved? Not at all.
The criticisms of the MCU's direction aren't actually particularly fair, since most of these directors have done a fine job at bringing these adventures to life. There are a few notable exceptions, but for the most part the MCU has proven to be very well-directed and in recent times, with more and more interesting choices being brought on-board, the directing line-up is only getting better and better.
But who are the MCU directors to beat? It's time to find out...
