How to Watch every Marvel Cinematic Universe movie in the right order before Avenger's Endgame


The Endgame is near.


So this is it. The End Game will wrap up the first 12 years of Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Wacky Duo and the case of MCU

If you planning to watch it from the beginning. Here is a Handy List of how you should watch the shows. Instead, of going through the show base on the release dates, this is the right way to watch the MCU movies in chronological order.
There are a total of 21 movies, so buckle up and get started if you want to watch all of it before the Endgame premieres on 24 Apr 2019

Phase 1 : Avengers Initiative 
1 Captain America : The First Avenger (2011)


It's not the first but the fifth movie in MC. However since the story started with Captain America as a first Avenger decades before the rest of the Avenger's appearance, it should be first on the list.  You even get to see Tony's Dad in this show. The Tesseract aka Space Stone was introduced here.

2 Captain Marvel (2019)



It may be just released but it was base on the 90s before the emergence of Iron Man. The film also showed how Avenger's Initiative started.

3 Iron Man (2008)



The film that started the whole MCU revival on the big screen. This is the movie that introduce Iron Man and defines what Marvel would be like on the big screen.

4 The Incredible Hulk (2008)


You probably would be surprise at this on the list. But with Tony Stark appearing in the precredits as a cameo, it very much brand this as a MCU film even though Hulk is played by another actor.

5 Iron Man 2 (2010)


This show includes footage from The incredible Hulk and postcredits scene of Thor's hammer. So it fits in the timeline between Hulk and Thor.

6 Thor (2011)



The last major character to be introduced in the core team of Avengers. The dashing God of Thunder.

7 Avengers Assemble (2012)


This is the first show where all the Marvel Superheros come together to form the Avengers.

Phase 2 : Avengers Fallout
8 Iron Man 3 (2013)


Set 6 months after the Avengers. This is one of the darker MCU film where Ironman deals with PTSD

9 Thor the Dark World (2013)


One year onwards . The Aether aka Reality Stone is introduced here

10 Captain America : The Winter Soldier (2014)


Takes place 2 years after Avengers. Winter Soldier is introduced.

11 Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)


The Marvel movie that does not look like a Marvel movie. The story may begin in 1988 but the bulk of the story takes place 26 years later. GOTG also introduced the Power Stone.

12 Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 (2017)


Set just 3 months after GOTG, Vol 2 continued the light hearted humour that was well loved by fans.

13 Avengers : Age of Ultron (2014)


The heros are back together again to defeat a common enemy. The Mind Stone was introduced

14 Ant Man (2015)


Months after the Age of Ultron, the world's smallest hero was introduced.

Phase 3 : Avengers Battle
15 Captain America : Civil War (2016)


One year after the Age of Ultron, the heroes choose side against one another.

16 Black Panther (2018)


The pace picked up immediately after Civil War with the origins on The Black Panther

17 Spider-Man Homecoming (2017)


Set a few months after Civil War,  your neighborhood friendly Superhero has his own tale to tell.

18 Doctor Strange (2016)


With much of the show setting in 2016 and postcredits leading up to Thor : Ragnarok, it feels right to put  this here.

19  Ant Man and the Wasp (2018)


The show takes place after Civil War . It is probably in the same timeline as Black Panther / Spiderman

20 Thor : Ragnarok (2017)


The show ended right before Avenger's Infinity War started. As such is is best to watch it before Infinity War

21 Avengers : Infinity War (2019)


Watch half of the Avengers turned to dust in this epic movie.

There you have it. The whole MCU movies in chronological order.
Pop in the popcorn and enjoy the ride!
