Disney Plus didn't list the Marvel movies in order — so we will

Disney Plus (Disney+) has the greatest collection of Marvel movies and shows ever available for legal streaming. Unless you've been buying up every Marvel Cinematic Universe movie over the past decade, this is likely the first time you've had a chance to have a proper marathon of Marvel's Infinity Saga, which has served as the canonical MCU up to this point. From the original Iron Man to the conclusive "I am … Iron Man" in Avengers: Endgame you can relive most of the story so far.

Disney hasn't made a proper MCU playlist in the Disney+ app — a major oversight in this humble hero-lover's opinion — but it's OK! We've put the movies in order in a handy list that will let you watch the story of the Infinity Stones according to the in-universe chronological order:

  1. Captain America: The First Avenger (opens in new tab)
  2. Captain Marvel (opens in new tab)
  3. Iron Man (opens in new tab)
  4. Iron Man 2 (opens in new tab)
  5. The Incredible Hulk — Not on Disney+ because it's a Universal film, but can be bought on Movies Anywhere
  6. Thor (opens in new tab)
  7. Avengers (opens in new tab)
  8. Iron Man 3 (opens in new tab)
  9. Thor: The Dark World (opens in new tab)
  10. Captain America: The Winter Soldier (opens in new tab)
  11. Guardians of the Galaxy (opens in new tab)
  12. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (opens in new tab)
  13. Avengers: Age of Ultron (opens in new tab)
  14. Ant-Man (opens in new tab)
  15. Captain America: Civil War (opens in new tab)
  16. Spider-Man: Homecoming — Not on Disney+ because it's a Sony film, but can be bought on Movies Anywhere
  17. Doctor Strange (opens in new tab)
  18. Black Panther (opens in new tab) — Will be added to Disney+ on March 4, 2020, but can be bought on Movies Anywhere
  19. Thor: Ragnarok (opens in new tab) — Will be added to Disney+ on December 5, 2019, but can be bought on Movies Anywhere
  20. Avengers: Infinity War (opens in new tab) — Will be added to Disney+ on June 25, 2020, but can be bought on Movies Anywhere
  21. Ant-Man and the Wasp (opens in new tab) — Will be added to Disney+ on July 29, 2020, but can be bought on Movies Anywhere
  22. Avengers: Endgame (opens in new tab)
  23. Spider-Man: Far From Home — Not on Disney+ because it's a Sony film, but can be bought on Movies Anywhere

Technically, Ant-Man and the Wasp takes place before and during Infinity War But because the post-credits scene is "The Snap," I'm putting it after Infinity War. Not that it really matters since Ant-Man and the Wasp is one of the few MCU films that isn't on Disney+ at launch because of pre-existing content agreements that Disney simply has to wait out at this point.

As a small reminder, watching all of these movies would take more than 40 hours, so you're either going to want to add these movies to your Disney+ watchlist in order, or you're going to want to bookmark this article so you can come back throughout your multi-day Marvel movie marathon.

And of course, once you're done, I recommend:

  • Infinity War isn't on there.
  • Yeah, sorry about that! It's been fixed with a link to Movies Anywhere.
  • Your wrong about most of the ones saying they're not on there. All you have to do is type it into the search. The only ones your right about is hulk and spiderman. So it sounds like your just trying to get people to buy from movies anywhere.
  • Thanks for the list. Saved to my favorites
