Marvel movie order

Marvel chronological order

The Marvel Universe is growing by leaps and bounds, and the number of films increases every year in an incredible way. The problem is knowing what order we should follow to be able to enjoy the entire saga without missing a single detail and see it in a logical temporal way.

If you are thinking of holding a marathon of superhero movies and series, count on the fact that we already have more than twenty movies and a dozen series (and counting) dthe Marvel Universe (MCU). That is why we are going to help you by leaving a logical order for correct viewing.

It is true that to see them in the best possible way we will have to see films from previous years previously. That is, in order to have a more reasonable succession of events and understand the plot it is better to watch a 2017 movie first and leave the 2010 movie for later, for example.

It should be mentioned that thanks to the different streaming platforms we also have a catalog of Superheroes and villains series, which must be added to our list to watch, such as «Scarlet Witch and Vision», 'Falcon, the recent Ms. Marvel. And don't forget that Chloé Zhao's 'Eternals' has arrived, which opens up more options in this Marvel universe, without forgetting series like Loki, with Tom Hiddleston, Hawkeye with Jeremy Renner and Ms. Marvel directly related to Captain Marvel 2.

Captain America: The First Avenger (Joe Johnston, 2011)

the first avenger

This is not the first movie produced by Marvel, in fact it is from 2011, but is the movie we should see first to be able to understand the history of our favorite heroes. Our protagonist emerges in the midst of World War II, and many of the plots that we will see later begin here.

The synopsis of this title (without making unnecessary spoilers) begins with the dedicated soldier Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) who volunteers to be part of an experimental program, which will make him become a super soldier, in the great Captain America. Soldier Steve teams up with Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) and Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) to fight and take down the evil organization HYDRA, commanded by the villainous Red Skull (or Red Skull) played by Hugo Weaving.

Captain Marvel (Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, 2019)

Second in the Marvel order

thanks to this movie We are going to know the origin and history of Captain Marvel. This title is already set in the 90s, and we will see how the foundations are laid for what will happen in the famous Phase 4. It is necessary that you see this movie in second position so as not to miss anything.

Let's summarize this title briefly, personally it is a very good movie, set in the 90's, and chronicles the wanderings and adventures of Carol Danvers, played by Brie Larson, and is one of the most powerful heroines in the universe. She intervenes when Earth is engaged in a galactic war between two alien races. This powerful warrior must mediate in this conflict that may end up ravaging the Earth.

Iron Man (Jon Favreau, 2008)

marvel saga

With this film we can say that the Marvel film universe began and the superhero cinema resurfaced and villains on the big screen and in Hollywood. Here the cheeky Tony Stark bursts in, a central and very important character, around whom he is going to revolve the entire saga and the franchise until "Avengers: Endgame".

Surely you have already seen it, but in this title we meet engineer Tony Stark played by Robert Downey Jr. which is dedicated to the invention, manufacture and sale of weapons of superior technology, to the US Government. He is a wealthy businessman who must build armor in order to live with the shrapnel that has lodged near his heart. That's where the story of Iron Man begins.

Iron Man 2 (Jon Favreau, 2010)

The Marvel movies

On this occasion, Tony Stark is under great pressure from the US to share his technology with the army, something he is not willing to do, since there is information that should never fall into the hands of villains. Enter Pepper Potts played by Gwyneth Paltrow and James "Rhodey" Rhodes. We will see the creation of new alliances and fearsome confrontations.

The Incredible Hulk (Louis Leterrier, 2008)

Hulk

Now we must return to a 2008 film, but this new version leaves behind the failure of the previous version directed by Ang Lee. this time the scientist Bruce Banner, played by Edward Norton is in Brazil, seeking a cure for his overexposure to gamma rays causing him to undergo transformations into the Hulk.

Our beloved Banner flees from the army, led by General Ross (William Hurt), and from the military Emil Blonsky (Tim Roth), dominated by his own rage, he decides to return to civilization unable to forget Betty Ross (Liv Tyler).

Thor (Kenneth Branagh, 2011)

thor god of thunder

On this occasion dwe discover the son of Odin, Thor is the God of Thunder and his brother Loki, one of the villains that I like the most, and who has his own series on the Disney + platform. We also see Hawkeye although his intervention is minor.

The summary of this installment is that Thor (Chris Hemsworth), a powerful and vain warrior, acts recklessly and haughtily, causing a war. And his father Odin punishes him by banishing him to Earth, there will live among mortals and know the true meaning of life. When Asgard's most dangerous villain unleashes a fearsome army on Earth, Thor must spring into action and become the hero he was meant to be.

To make matters worse, The Avengers are not going through their best moment, the American government has left experimentation behind, but that does not prevent the Mandarin, played by Ben Kingsley continue financing of some experiments whose end is not as expected, and all thanks to Iron Man.

Thor: The Dark World (Alan Taylor, 2013)

We are facing a title that you can see at almost any time, it does not have much to do with the saga, except for one reason. And it is in this movie where we will see for the first time one of the famous Gems of Infinity.

Captain America: Civil War (Joe and Anthony Russo, 2016)

Marvel and the viewing order

This is one of the most important in the saga, to understand the entire plot as well as being one of the titles in which we will see a multitude of characters from our beloved group.

The reunion of the Avengers, except Hulk and Thor, an epic fight between Captain America and Iron-Man because of Machiavellian organizations and plans with differences of opinion between the two... In short, a cluster of situations that has caused the confrontation between the heroes themselves, and the Government that has decided to supervise the super. Something that will divide the Avengers in the middle of a fight to save the world again.

Black Widow (Cate Shortland, 2020)

Black Widow

One of the worst movies in the Marvel universe, in my humble opinion… In short, Natasha Romanoff, the Black Widow, has to face her past, and face a dangerous conspiracy related to it. We will be able to see how the Black Widow was forged, a dangerous spy with a lot to tell.

The past of this Avenger is not idyllic or simple.

Black Panther (Ryan Coogler, 2018)

marvel order

Let's go now with the Black Panther movie, here we get to know more deeply T'Challa, leader of the kingdom of Wakanda. Hero who already appears in the title of Captain America: Civil War, and we can also see it independently, without a certain order, but in this place we can understand the history of Vibranium.

Ant-Man and the Wasp (Peyton Reed, 2018)

The best order to watch the Marvel saga

The second installment of Ant-Man includes the presence of a super heroine such as the Wasp. It is another film that does not follow the story in the Marvel saga, but here we will learn more about the Quantum Kingdom and do not forget to watch the credits, since later you will know something fundamental in the plot.

Events have been precipitated, and after what happened in Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang will have to be a hero and a father, all while facing Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym with a mission that needs them. Our protagonist will re-enter the Ant-man suit to fight alongside The Wasp, and discover things from his past.

The end of Marvel is coming

The end of Marvel's last Phase is drawing near, And now we are going to know why Thanos wants the Infinity Stones… The best thing about this film is that we will see endless heroes in action, something that does not leave fans of the saga unmoved.

The culmination of a saga resolved in an unpredictable way.

The Marvel universe is inexhaustible, I will leave you the series that you must see after the last title indicated. It is now that we must see the Loki series, and then the Vision and Scarlet Witch series, clarify several issues for us, even if they are titles of independent series.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (Destin Cretton, 2021)

Shang Chi

This is the next movie we should see after the two series mentioned.

It developed after the last battle against Thanos, since it refers to it. From here, we will see how they develop more new stories around them. This time we will see how the martial arts master Shang-Chi faces his past, something very recurrent in Marvel... The past and its confrontation, although now our character will discover the mysterious organization of the Ten Rings.

Next you must see the series Falcon and the Winter Soldier, in which we can see how a few months after Avengers: Endgame, Falcon and Bucky Barnes, become the protagonists who will test their abilities and the complicity between both characters, who will have to collaborate with each other.

Spider-man: Far From Home (Jon Watts, 2019)

Spiderman

This time, the story introduces us to a group of immortal heroes, who will have to come to light to fight against humanity's oldest enemy, The Deviants.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (Sam Raimi 2022)

multiverse of madness

If the multiverses were already warning in the titles of 'Loki' and 'Spider-Man: No Way Home' in this Dr. Strange movie they come true. We will no longer know what is real and what is fiction or parallel reality.
