Hi everyone, welcome back to my blog! We’re currently at the start of phase four of the MCU and the movies are starting to be released in cinemas again which is so exciting! So, I thought, since my Riordan-Verse Reading Order post was so popular, I’d make a watching order post for the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), this will also include the tv shows and at the end I run through the non-MCU tv shows too (ABC, Netflix).
I go through the publication order (phases), chronological order, individual series and tv shows all in this post. Let me know if I’ve forgotten anything!
I will also update this regularly as more content comes out!

I’ve seen all the Marvel movies – I’m still a little behind on the Disney+ seris – but I’d love to find time to do a rewatch in chronological order.
Loved this so much! I definitely prefer watching them in chronological order because at this point everything gets too confusing otherwise
This must have been so much work to prepare, but you really did an amazing job in showing the different ways one can watch. It’s so cool!
I HAVE BEEN WATCHING THESE OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS! I’m really freaking excited because I’m onto Spider-Man Far From Home which means I am very very close to WandaVision and Loki.
