Movie marathon

Only true Marvel fans can handle the ultimate MCU chronological viewing order

“Avengers, assemble!”

1. Thor: The Dark World (Start – 3:45)

It all starts with Thor: The Dark Worlds Lord of the Rings-style prologue, which depicts a battle thousands of years before the movie proper begins.

2. Thor: Ragnarok (1:19:13 – 1:19:54)

The timeline continues with a brief scene from a somewhat less ancient battle also in Thor’s realm between the Valkyries and Hela.

3. Thor (3:20–7:34)

The dive into Thor’s past continues with a trip to both Earth and Asgard.

4. Black Panther (Start–1:43)

Next up, the intro to Black Panther shows the origin of Wakanda and the first person to wear the Black Panther mantle.

5. Captain America: The Winter Soldier (1:32:28–1:33:17)

From here on, the time jumps get much less dramatic, beginning with a flashback to pre-Super-Soldier Steve Rogers.

6. Captain America: The First Avenger (3:38–1:50:30)

Now, you can take a break from switching movies for a while and watch most of Captain America: The First Avenger, which takes place during World War II.

7. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (Start–2:47)

Next, a short, jaunty road trip breaks up the war and drama in a flashback to 1980 with Kurt Russell as Ego.

8. Ant-Man and the Wasp (Start–2:40)

The next flashback is a mix of action and heartbreak, with the final adventure of the original Ant-Man and Wasp.

9. Guardians of the Galaxy (Start–3:40)

Another rough childhood scene follows, with a young Peter Quill saying goodbye to his mother, shortly before being abducted by a mysterious spaceship.

10. Avengers: Infinity War (42:20–44:23)

A flashback to Thanos taking Gamora with him before slaughtering the rest of her people rounds out three tragic backstories in a row.
