How to watch the Marvel Cinematic Universe in chronological order

Seen the MCU in full but wondering how to watch it so that the timeline is chronological rather than theatrical release? We have you covered.

If like us, you’ve been looking forward to every Friday so that you can watch the latest episode of WandaVision, the gaps in between can seem rather empty. We’ve been filling those gaps with a rewatch of the entire MCU. Something we did in time for Avengers Endgame but we’ve never seen it in chronological order. Until now.

Below is possibly the best way to enjoy the Marvel Cinematic Universe as each movie flows nicely onto the next. Some of the post credit scenes are a bit out of sync this way but as serious movie lovers, we’re sure that won’t be an issue for you.

We haven’t included the Netflix shows, Agents of SHIELD, Agent Carter or any of the other TV shows that aren’t officially part of the MCU. Besides, even with lockdown still in place, who has that much time on their hands?
