Order of Marvel Movies

The easiest way to watch Marvel movies in order today is Disney Plus, which has most movies being streamed in 4K. It will also be the home of the Black Widow on July 9, when it is released simultaneously on the streaming platform - for an additional fee, via Premier Access - along with a theatrical release. Finally, after waiting more than a year, we will add Natasha Romanoff's solo film to our range of Marvel films.

Furthermore, this is a busy year for Marvel in relation to its sitcoms. WandaVision was just Marvel's first canonical series on the streaming service. The Hawk and the Winter Soldier started on March 19, 2021, Loki will start in June 2021, and Ms. Marvel and Gavião Arqueiro will not be released until the end of 2021 as well. Other new Marvel originals include Moon Knight, She-Hulk, Armor Wars, Iron Heart and Secret Invasion. You will find them all listed further down in this guide.

In addition to the Black Widow, more new Marvel films will be released in 2021 - Shang-Chi and The Eternals are scheduled for the end of the year. This means that this list of Marvel films in order will soon grow considerably.

You have two main ways to watch the order of Marvel films: the chronological order, starting with Captain America: The First Avenger in World War 2, or the launch order, which starts with Iron Man 2008 and the introduction Robert Downey Jr as Tony Stark. Both have their advantages, in fact - it depends mainly on the type of fan you are and what is most important to you.

With Phase 4 in progress, starting with WandaVision, we still have several years of great new superhero stories ahead of us. Think of the MCU as a big and extremely expensive TV show - where story arcs and character moments can take years to be worthwhile, but it tastes wonderful when they do.

Ready to know the order of Marvel movies? So, let's start your marathon!

Order of Marvel Movies: Chronological

A timeline of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is probably what you're looking for. See the order of the films The Marvel movies in chronological order, starting with Steve Rogers' origins in World War II with Captain America: The First Avenger, and ending with Peter's school trip in Spider-Man: Far From Home.

-- Advertising --

The incentive to watch Marvel movies in this order is straightforward: you'll see events unfold as they happened, from the Tesseract's search for Red Skull to the death of Thanos. If you're curious to know when WandaVision happens, it comes after Ultimatum, but before Far From Home – you'll also find it below.

This is, chronologically, the order of Marvel movies you should watch:

  • Captain America: The First Avenger (occurs during World War II)
  • Captain Marvel (occurs in 1995)
  • Iron Man (occurs in 2010)
  • Iron Man 2 (occurs after Iron Man)
  • The Incredible Hulk (unspecified time, pre-Avengers)
  • Thor (occurs six months before the Avengers)
  • The Avengers (occurs in 2012)
  • Iron Man 3 (happens six months after The Avengers)
  • Thor: The 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 the Guardians)
  • The Avengers: Age of Ultron (occurs in 2015)
  • Ant-Man (occurs in 2015)
  • Captain America: Civil War (post-Ultron, pre-Infinite War)
  • Black Widow (post-Civil War)
  • Spider-Man: Away from Home (post-Civil War, pre-Infinite War)
  • Doctor Strange (occurs in 2016)
  • Black Panther (occurs in 2017)
  • Thor: Ragnarok (post-Ultron, pre-Infinite War)
  • The Avengers: Infinity War (occurs in 2017)
  • Ant-Man and Wasp (ambiguous, but fits perfectly between Infinity War and Ultimatum)
  • The Avengers: Endgame (starts in 2017, ends in 2022)
  • Spider-Man: Away from Home (eight months after the Ultimatum)
  • Loki (occurred after the events of Ultimatum)
  • WandaVision (occurred after the events of Ultimatum)
  • Falcon and the Winter Soldier (occurred after the events of Ultimatum)

WandaVision, however, takes place a few weeks after the Ultimatum. Hawk and the Winter Soldier, which has just been released, is confirmed to be set six months after the Ultimatum - so the two series take place before Spider-Man: Away from Home, if you include them in your marathon. Here they are:

  • WandaVision (three weeks after the Ultimatum)
  • Hawk and the Winter Soldier (about six months after the Ultimatum)
  • Black Widow arrives in July 2021, and it has already been confirmed that the film is set after Captain America: Civil War.

Order of Marvel films: release date

Want to watch the MCU's movies in order of release? You'll need this list, which starts with Iron Man in 2008 and ends in 2019 with The Avengers: Ultimatum and Spider-Man: Far From Home. Watching Marvel movies in order of release is a better option if you want an incredible nostalgic trip, and you'll see how neat the MCU films are after the Disney acquisition, with bigger and better budgets.

Where can I see everything?

After reading all about the order of Marvel movies, you sure were excited to marathon every movie and series in this amazing universe. Know that you can find everything (or almost everything) in one place.

Disney + is launched on November 12, 2020, and in Brazil it was only available on November 17, 2020 and signing it was a great deal. The new streaming service is filled with Disney exclusive content, and its price is R$27,90 in the monthly subscription option and R$279,90 in the annual plan, which corresponds to R$23,32 per month, the makes an attractive alternative to Netflix and other streming services.

Of course, there is more to it than just that. Disney+ is coming at a time when there didn't seem to be enough room for another streaming service. So how does this go about innovating? What kind of original content can we expect to see on Disney+, and is there anything unpleasant about the service that we haven't heard of yet?

Disney logo +

Disney+'s library is filled with somewhere between 600-700 movies and around 7.000 episodes of series. Compared to Netflix's library of over 1.500 series and over 4.000 movies, that's not much. But Disney+ makes up for its small library by offering a ton of exclusive content.

You can expect most of this content to come from Disney's previous catalog (and from the catalog of its other properties, such as Pixar, FX, Marvel and Lucasfilms). With Disney +, you'll have access to all Disney animation classics (even if they're very old ones that remind you of your childhood), all Pixar movies, all Star Wars movies, most Marvel movies, The Simpsons and various other shows.

But there will also be a handful of series and movies made for Disney+. Get ready for a reboot of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, two live-action Star Wars series, and some Marvel series (Hawk and Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki, Hawkeye, and more to come). You can see the full list of Disney+ originals on Wikipedia and the Marvel movie order list we've put up above.

The MCU doesn't live only on successes

Although these films are not part of the fantastic shared universe that Marvel has been building over the last few years, they still feature some Marvel characters and deserve to be remembered for their bizarre and ham acting (or not so big) stars.

Let's not talk about more recent films like the infamous Fantastic Four adaptation attempts or classics like the Hulk series starring Lou Ferrigno and Bill Bixby. Let's try to go a little deeper into this mess created by Casa das Ideias and bring some more interesting things.

-- Advertising --

Howard the Super Hero (1986)

Remember that that happened occasionally in the afternoon session and there was even a scene with a paw with its breasts out? As if all the madness of the film was not enough, the protagonist was also voiced by Nelson Machado, the eternal voice of Quico in the series Chaves. So you have a dwarf dressed as a duck with Quico's voice and you don't think it's absurd?

The Punisher (1989)

Dolph Lundgren (the eternal Ivan Drago from Rocky IV) and Louis Gossett Jr (the alien from the movie “Enemy Mine”). they star in a low-cost '80s grunge C-level classic adapting the story of Frank Castle, the ex-special forces agent who hunts down bad guys after justice fails to convict the murderers of his wife and children. The Punisher suffered some bad adaptations like this one and the one from 2004 (but was well characterized in 2008 with “The Punisher: In War Zone”) until it reached the Netflix screens.

Captain America (1979)

-- Advertising --

Another one that was very bitter until we got to “The First Avenger”. Before that gem we saw at the 1990's Afternoon Session, in which Captain America had (for some reason) rubber ears, the bandero hero had two TV movies. Captain America, in 1979, and Captain America II: Dead Too Soon, also from 79. For some reason this Captain, in addition to his shield, had a motorcycle as a great combat companion to a terrorist known only as… Miguel. Threatening, isn't it?

Dr. Strange (1978)

This TV movie was made as a pilot for a series that would be broadcast on CBS, but was rated "boring and dragging" by most viewers. Here, Stephen Strange is a psychologist who must become the Supreme Mage to protect his beautiful assistant from the possession made by Morgana Le Fey, who tries to gain the supreme mage powers of the… Elder? Old woman? Not! Lindmer! With a pilot like this it's clear that the series didn't go forward.

Fantastic Four (1994)

This is one that is so bad that it hasn't even been released until today, but we can say that, because of him, we don't have a good Quartet movie to date (the time of this post. If you're reading this after 2023 – perhaps – the situation has already changed). It was made on a low budget to keep the characters' copyrights at Constantin Films and was never officially released, although after a few years it fell on the net thanks to pirated copies circulating around. If you thought the 2005 Thing was a rubber doll, then this one will give you nightmares.

-- Advertising --

Supaidãman (1978)

This one is already famous on the internet, but let's mention it. Through an agreement between Marvel and Toei, the Japanese Spider-Man series aired in 78 and had 41 episodes and one movie. Unlike the radioactive spider that bites student Peter Parker, we have biker Takuya Yamashiro who receives the bracelet with the DNA of the people of Spider Planet to defend Earth from the Iron Cross Army. And for that, he has the help of a spaceship called Marveler that turns into the giant robot Leopardon (not even to be Aranhon or Spideron or something that resembles a spider). But his catchphrase “Emissary from Hell, Spiderman” was pretty cool.

Spider-Man (1977)

Not only did Spider-Man live out of giant robots in the 70s, but he also had a series of just 13 episodes on CBS, which also played other famous series like Bill Bixby's Hulk, Wonder Woman with Linda Carter, and got the attempt of a series of Dr. Strange. But this one had some production problems and suffered from being too slow and not having the participation of any of the villains from the comics. During one season, they put mirror lenses in the actor's mask and he couldn't see anything, so they replaced it with a leaky “net” that fell on his face, giving him a bizarre appearance!

And the Avengers of the 70s?

-- Advertising --

Sorry to inform you, but this is not Avengers of the 70s! The trailer was made with a compilation of bits and pieces from other films that have and are unrelated to Marvel. For example, excerpts from the Captain America movies mentioned above were used, as well as from the movie “Return of the Incredible Hulk” in which we are introduced to the version of Thor played by Eric Krammer.

Of the “non-Marvel” the most famous is the hero Exo-Man, who was named in the trailer with Iron Man. Although it is not, the film presents a very similar plot, of a scientist who is paralyzed after an attack and builds himself an iron suit and fights crime. Exo-Man was never officially released and was made famous by this trailer.

Loki, from the trailer, is played by Paul Linde, with footage taken from 1976's The Paul Lynde Halloween Special, which featured Band members Kiss, who appear in the trailer as "Destroyer." Scenes from the movie “Kiss against the Park Ghost” are also used. The Black Widow in this trailer is actress Tanya Roberts, from a scene taken from the “The Panthers” series. So, in the end, I'm sorry, but it's all a great montage. There was never a movie of them in the 70s.
