This Is The Correct Order To Watch Every MCU Movie To Understand Everything Before Endgame
It was in 2008 that the first ‘Iron Man’ movie released and now in 2019 we finally get the conclusion with ‘Avengers: Endgame’. But this is not the conclusion for the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we still have ‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’, coming out in July 2019. That movie will conclude the Avengers Infinity Saga.
In these 11 years the studio has released 22 movies, including Endgame so, in what order should you watch it? Obviously, in the order of release? No, we have made the correct order to watch so that you are able to understand everything exactly how it should be.
The first Marvel movie of 2019 saw the origins of one of the Avengers’ strongest members, Carol Danvers or Captain Marvel. The story shows us how a young Nick Fury started S.H.I.E.L.D and learned about special people with powers. Although this is the latest movie in the Marvel line up you need to watch this first to understand how S.H.I.E.L.D was built.
2Captain America: The First Avenger
Captain America is the heart of the Avengers along with being its leader. He is also one of the oldest Avengers apart from Thor. This is his origin story where we see Cap before he was injected with the super serum and the kind of person he was. The story also shows us how Tony’s father, Howard Stark gave Cap his shield and how he went under the ice.
This is the movie that started the Marvel Cinematic Universe and is still considered to be a masterpiece as far as comic books-to-movie adaptations are concerned. This movie tells the back story of Tony Stark and how he created his arc reactor and how he got the idea of creating his first Iron Man suit.
4The Incredible Hulk
This movie may not be canon for the rest of the MCU as Mark Ruffalo was cast to replace Edward Norton in ‘The Avengers’ but this movie still has importance in the MCU. The movie was a reboot after the critically panned 2003 ‘Hulk’ movie that starred Edward Norton as Bruce Banner. The movie came out after Iron Man and in the end credits scene, we saw him talking to Ross about the Avengers Initiative. Ross was later seen in more MCU movies.
5Iron Man 2
The sequel to ‘Iron Man’ saw Tony trying to find another source of power for his arc reactor as the palladium he was using till then was slowly poisoning him. His nemesis for the movie was Ivan Vanco who creates his own suit and calls himself Whiplash. This is also where we first see the War machine armor. The movie teases Thor’s arrival in the MCU.
