The Marvel films in order

Paul Rudd is perfect casting as Scott Lang / Ant-Man, as is Michael Douglas who chews up the scenery in every shot he is in. The miniature effects are superb and no other MCU movie can boast having a Thomas The Tank Engine cameo. Its sequel was a bit of a dud but we’d happily watch this one again and again.

Simu Liu is one of the most exciting additions to the MCU in recent years, but if we’re honest, the show was stolen by Tony Leung as the true leader of the Ten Rings organisation. Shang-Chi’s greatest weakness is just how well-choreographed its practical fight scenes are, which make the CGI heavy ending a bit of a disappointment. Well, sorry, dear reader, but it takes more than a bit of nostalgia to impress us. He’s powerful, pompous, and a bit of a prick, but beneath his little magician’s goatee, he’s got a heart of gold.

Appearing onstage with his fellow cast members, Rudd said his character was very pleased with himself for previously saving the world. A trailer for the film showed Scott Lang, played by Paul Rudd, doing a book reading of his book, Look out for the Little Guy. “I’m unbelievably excited, three years ago we were here and it’s been a hell of a long time since then,” Feige said. The Watermelon Sugar performer will be hitting the big screen in not one but five Marvel Universe movies, according to insiders. The former One Direction singer teased Marvel fans at the end of The Eternals movie last year, popping up in the end credits as Eros. There’s a full-fat version, which includes the accompanying TV shows.

The Sorceror Supreme returns in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Doctor Strange 2 is to be lauded for bringing the pulpiness of its comic book source material to the big screen. But while this makes for some pretty impressive visuals, as a cohesive whole, the film falls short of the mark. If there’s a perfect MCU movie, it has to be Avengers Assemble.

  • Marvel has been reluctant to put an exact date on it, but we surmise this happens around the same time as Multiverse of Madness.
  • Directed by Shane Black, there’s barely any Iron Man in it.
  • Here, then, is a definitive list of the best Marvel movies, the movies to catch up on if you haven’t yet ventured into the MCU.
  • It’s easy to forget just what a huge gamble the original Iron Man movie was.
  • The move follows the cancellation of Daredevil by Netflix, when the streaming service relinquished the rights to the character to Disney.
  • We will never not be watching a Marvel film, perhaps for the rest of recorded history.

The Marvel film, directed by Jon Favreau, that started it all still holds up. What more can be said about Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark, and the eccentric world his fortune bankrolled? Even now, when Nick Fury pops up in that post-credits scene, it’s spine-tingling stuff. Its most impressive feat is that despite its ensemble cast, none of the characters feel like they’re fighting for screentime.

Still the cast do a good job with Elizabeth Olsen being the standout. While most probably remember the final battle on the train set, there’s more fun to be had with the incredible shrinking man. I’ve always been fond of Scott’s battle against Falcon, where he manages to make the Avenger look a fool or Hank escaping from his lab with a tank he shrank and smuggled in. It also gave us Luis, and that’s got to be worth something.

Marvel movies in order: Full list reveals how to watch MCU chronologically

Peter Parker is still in school, giving Far From Home a nice teen energy that makes the talky scenes far more fun than most of the action. Thor’s first film is the one where you can see Marvel working out the formula in real-time. “Harry has the midas touch and will be a huge deal bringing in different demographics and showing older comic book fans his talent. He has also has revealed that plans are already in place for two new phases of franchises and spin offs of the comic book world. We will never not be watching a Marvel film, perhaps for the rest of recorded history. After the Black Panther sequel, we’re into Phase Five, and Fantastic Four marks the start of Phase Six.

This is the second Marvel character from a Disney+ show to have to star in a spinoff after Echo from Hawkeye. Jac Schaeffer is on board the series as writer/exec producer. Not much has been revealed about the upcoming animated television series, X-Men ’97 but the show is a continuation of the beloved 1992 X-Men animated show with Beau DeMayo writing and producing the show. “I couldn’t be more honored to join the MCU,” she told Comic Con. “I feel like I’m doing something meaningful and hopeful and I hope you love Cosmo because she’s gonna bring lots of laughs and love and a bit of strength.” James Gunn returns to direct the third movie in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, which recently wrapped production.

Marvel and One Direction fans went wild when they finally saw the scene, anticipating his return in future MCU movies. Set in 2016, directly between the end of Civil War’s airport fight and the final scene of the film. The film starts with Natasha Romanoff on factory-publishing the run and in hiding after betraying Tony Stark and helping Steve Rogers and Bucky escape. The events of Black Widow appear to take place over three weeks. The film also introduces Yelena Belova and the dives into the origins of the Black Widow programme.

With a pretty clunky story that introduced way too many new characters in one go, apparently. With every new film, there are plenty of Easter eggs and callbacks for viewers to unearth, with the series getting more interlinked as it progresses. While many have probably watched back all the MCU projects numerous times in release order, doing so in chronological order seems to be a feat only the most dedicated Marvel fan has achieved. Probably the only Marvel superhero who could lead a franchise without even putting on a super suit, Spider-Man is the heart of the MCU. Hemsworth’s love for his own hammer is hilarious, Batman brings grit, and one scene in particular leaves everyone wrecked. The MCU leaves its American/Eastern European backlots to blow up the prettiest bits of Venice instead.
