When Marvel released Iron Man in 2008, few people would have guessed the Marvel Cinematic Universe would expand the way it has. Over 10 years later, the MCU has definitely cemented its place in pop culture thanks to billion-dollar blockbuster hits like Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War, as well as a roster teeming with incredible characters. Although it might be hard to believe it's been a full decade since the MCU began, the best part is that the movies just keep getting better and better.
So far, Marvel has almost 20 movies in its arsenal, which makes keeping track of the chronological order in which the events of each movie occur a little bit difficult. It might seem like a lot at first, but the satisfaction of actually watching them in order is oh so sweet (if you have, oh, I don't know, a trillion hours on your hands) and will give you a fuller picture of the MCU. In anticipation of upcoming movies like Ant-Man and the Wasp and Captain Marvel, we went ahead and put them in order, just in case you need some clarification. You might want to bookmark this!
