Here's a rundown of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) in chronological order.

How to watch Marvel movies in the correct order


The first thing you'll need to remember if you're planning a Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) marathon in 2021 is how to stream the Marvel movies in sequence. This page will show you how to watch Marvel movies in both chronological and release order, as well as how to use the MCU timeline. We'll also go into how MCU TV shows like WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier fit into the film's continuity.

If you're looking for a way to watch the Marvel movies in sequence, consider Disney Plus, which offers 4K streaming for the majority of the films. On July 9, it will also be the home of Black Widow, which will be available on the streaming service – for a fee, through Premier Access – alongside a theatrical release. It'll be the first new Marvel film in nearly two years, and it'll finally give Natasha Romanoff her due. We're looking forward to including the film in our Marvel movie marathon.

You've already heard that Marvel's television slate for 2021 is jam-packed. WandaVision was just the first canonical Marvel TV show to air on Disney Plus; The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is about to end, Loki will premiere in June 2021, and Ms. Marvel and Hawkeye will follow in late 2021. Moon Knight, She-Hulk, Armor Wars, Ironheart, and Secret Invasion are among the forthcoming Marvel originals. You'll find a rundown of them all farther down this tab.

Aside from Black Widow, more Marvel films are expected to hit theaters in 2021, including Shang-Chi and Marvel's Eternals, as well as the third Tom Holland Spider-Man film. As a result, this list of Marvel movies in chronological order will rapidly grow.

There are two options to watch the Marvel movies in order: chronologically, which begins with Captain America: The First Avenger in World War II, or chronologically, which begins with 2008's Iron Man and Robert Downey Jr.'s first appearance as Tony Stark. The release order is one of our favorites, so it's purely a matter of taste.

WandaVision kicked off Phase 4 of the MCU earlier this year, and there are already plenty more years of awesome new superhero movies and TV shows to come. Anything on this website is just the beginning of a giant movie empire that, like Marvel's comics, is sure to last decades.

Now is the start of the Marvel movie marathon...

The Marvel movies can be watched in chronological order

You're currently asking for a Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) timeline. Here's how to watch all of the Marvel movies in sequence, starting with Steve Rogers' WWII origins in Captain America: The First Avenger and concluding with Peter's high school adventure in Spider-Man: Far From There. If you want to see the MCU incidents unfold in chronological order, see them in this order. If you're wondering about the timelines for WandaVision and The Falcon and Winter Soldier, they're set after Endgame but before Far From Anywhere, and you can find them all below.

The Marvel movies are shown in the following order:

  • Captain America: The First Avenger (takes place during WWII)
  • Captain Marvel (takes place in 1995)
  • Iron Man (takes place in 2010)
  • Iron Man 2 (takes place after Iron Man)
  • The Incredible Hulk (time unspecified, pre-Avengers)
  • Thor (takes place six months before Avengers)
  • The Avengers (takes place in 2012)
  • Iron Man 3 (takes place six months after The Avengers)
  • Thor: Dark World (post-Avengers, pre-Ultron)
  • Captain America: Winter Soldier (post-Avengers, pre-Ultron)
  • Guardians of the Galaxy (sometime in 2014)
  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (after Guardians)
  • Avengers: Age of Ultron (takes place in 2015)
  • Ant-Man (takes place in 2015)
  • Captain America: Civil War (post-Ultron, pre-Infinity War)
  • Spider-Man: Homecoming (post-Civil War, pre-Infinity War)
  • Doctor Strange (takes place in 2016)
  • Black Panther (takes place in 2017)
  • Thor: Ragnarok (post-Ultron, pre-Infinity War)
  • Avengers: Infinity War (takes place in 2017)
  • Ant-Man and The Wasp (ambiguous, but fits nicely between IW and Endgame)
  • Avengers: Endgame (starts in 2017, finishes in 2022)
  • Spider-Man: Far From Home (eight months post-Endgame)

WandaVision, on the other hand, takes place just a few weeks after Endgame. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, which is now in theaters, is confirmed to take place six months after Endgame, which means both series can be shown before Spider-Man: Far From Home if you're doing a marathon. They are as follows:

  • WandaVision (three weeks after Endgame)
  • The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (around six months after Endgame)

We'll update this list until Black Widow is released in July 2021 – it's already been reported that the film takes place after Captain America: Civil War, so we won't include that until you've had a chance to see it.

The following is a list of Marvel movies in order of release date

Do you want to watch the MCU movies in order of release? This list, which starts with Iron Man in 2008 and ends with Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home in 2019, is important. If you want a fun nostalgic drive, seeing the Marvel movies in order is a better choice, and you'll see how the MCU films became supercharged since the Disney acquisition with bigger and better budgets.

Marvel's well films

Which Marvel films are the best? We all have a view (for us, Civil War, Infinity War, and The Avengers are the winners), but we've let the people have their say by grading the Marvel films based on IMDb user ratings. Some things are correct (Thor: The Dark World and The Incredible Hulk are clearly below-average), while others are completely incorrect (Ant-Man and the Wasp were certainly worse than Captain America: The First Avenger?). Surprisingly, the best MCU film so far is a tie between the last two Avengers films, Endgame and Infinity War.

How do I get Marvel movies to download?

How to watch Marvel movies in the correct order
Click the download symbol on the right, here.



You will store offline versions of Marvel movies using the Disney Plus app on your mobile computer if you wish to download them (smartphone or tablet). However, you won't be able to watch any videos through your desktop browser.
You'll need ample storage space, but all you have to do is look for the download symbol on any Disney Plus title:
If your phone doesn't have an external microSD card port, the content you download would be stored in the main memory. Both Apple iPhone smartphones, iPad laptops, and a few other handsets are included (like the Google Pixel 3a).
Depending on the consistency of the download, a one-hour download can require up to 400MB of storage: High quality is six times higher than standard quality, while the medium is half as good as high quality (which is the norm in the Disney Plus app).
If you're willing to purchase the movies as well, such as via Amazon Prime, you'll be able to stream Marvel films locally as well.
