How to watch Marvel movies in chronological order

How to Watch Marvel Movies in Order

During the last few days, I have seen approximately 432,422 blog posts outlining what new movies and shows to stream while we are all responsibly social distancing.

However, if we are being honest here – I am just not a huge fan of jumping into every “binge-worthy” show that takes social media by storm. Why? 9/10 times they stress me out. So – when thinking about how I wanted to distract myself from the craziness that is going on in today’s world, it was a clear answer – let’s turn to the superheroes, obviously.


Many of us have likely seen most of, if not all of the movies that have trickled out of Marvel Studios throughout the years. BUT – how many of us have committed 50 hours to rewatch these iconic films in the order they happen within the Marvel Universe?

Tyler and I have been watching these movies in order over the past few days and I wholeheartedly recommend it. By watching each movie as they happen within the overall Marvel storyline, you notice so many nuances and comments made by characters that make so much more sense when watching them in this order.

So go ahead, pop the popcorn, open up Disney Plus and let’s let the superheroes show us how it’s really done.
