With the rescheduling of Marvel Studios’ Black Window from November 8, 2020 to May 7, 2021 (thanks, COVID-19…), I’m embarking on a new movie watching project to ease the disappointment. I’m watching all 23 films of the “Marvel Cinematic Universe” (MCU) starting this weekend.
To mix it up, I’m going to watch the films in story chronological order rather than by release date, which really should be fun.
Here’s the watch order (with the year of original release in parenthesis):
- Captain America : The First Avenger (2011)
- Captain Marvel (2019)
- Iron Man (2008)
- The Incredible Hulk (2008)
- Iron Man 2 (2010)
- Thor (2011)
- Marvel’s The Avengers (2012)
- Iron Man 3 (2013)
- Thor: The Dark World (2013)
- Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
- Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
- Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017)
- Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
- Ant-Man (2015)
- Captain America: Civil War (2016)
- Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)
- Black Panther (2018)
- Doctor Strange (2016)
- Thor: Ragnarok (2017)
- Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018)
- Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
- Avengers: Endgame (2019)
- Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)
The goal is to watch one of these films a week. I’ll update the blog periodically, but will be tracking most of the action on the Movies Past and Present Instagram feed (@moviespap). Please follow or watch along if you’re into this sort of thing!
Speaking of Marvel Studios, I love this Avengers poster art by Matt Ferguson (@mattfergusonartist on Instagram).
