Marvel Cinematic Universe Chronological Order - How To Watch it All Unfold

At this point I probably don't have to tell you what a big fan I am of the Marvel movies. I've seen every one of them on opening weekend since the first "Iron Man" came out in 2008. Now here we are 11 years later and we're most likely going to have to say goodbye to a few of our favorites from this group in "Avengers: End Game." I am not sure I am prepared for that moment just yet.

I have had a handful of people who may have missed a movie or two ask me which order they should watch this incredible cinematic universe in, and I think I have a pretty solid list to help everyone out.

  1. Captain America: The First Avenger
  2. Captain Marvel
  3. Iron Man
  4. Iron Man 2
  5. The Incredible Hulk (Ed Norton)
  6. Thor
  7. The Avengers
  8. Iron Man 3
  9. Thor the Dark World
  10. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
  11. Guardians of the Galaxy
  12. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
  13. Avengers: Age of Ultron
  14. Ant-Man
  15. Captain America: Civil War
  16. Doctor Strange
  17. Black Panther
  18. Spider-Man: Home Coming
  19. Thor: Ragnarok
  20. Ant-Man and the Wasp
  21. Avengers: Infinity War

Ok I know that is a lot. 21 movies is no small thing, but I think you can do it. Even you wanted to dive even deeper you could even watch the first two seasons of Marvel's Agent Carter (I suggest doing this after Captain America: The First Avenger), and then dive into Marvel's Agents of SHIELD. That show is totally underrated and will defend it forever.

If 21 movies is a little daunting I have a cheat sheet for you that should get you up to speed:

  1. Captain America: The First Avenger
  2. Captain Marvel
  3. Iron Man
  4. Iron Man 2
  5. The Incredible Hulk (Ed Norton)
  6. Thor
  7. The Avengers
  8. Iron Man 3
  9. Thor the Dark World
  10. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
  11. Guardians of the Galaxy
  12. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
  13. Avengers: Age of Ultron
  14. Ant-Man
  15. Captain America: Civil War
  16. Doctor Strange
  17. Black Panther
  18. Spider-Man: Home Coming
  19. Thor: Ragnarok
  20. Ant-Man and the Wasp
  21. Avengers: Infinity War

So that narrows it down to about 15 movies where each of the characters you'll see is at least introduced. Hopefully that makes things a bit more manageable. I don't want to tell anyone to skip Black Panther or Spider-Man, but I'm not sure you need to watch those in order to enjoy the rest. Same goes with the Ed Norton Hulk, and Guardians 2.

After you do all of this get your butt to the theater on April 26th for "Avengers: End Game."
