This lists every existing Marvel film and series up until modern dates. If you’re planning to watch every Marvel movie, this guide is one way you can do it. This list compiles each movie in timeline order, therefore hopefully making it easier to follow along with the story and keep track of the plot throughout the entire cinematic universe. 

While the excitement and anticipation only increases with each Marvel movie you watch, it does require lots of time and dedication to watch every existing Marvel film. If you would rather enjoy branches of the story rather than the big-picture, feel free to watch any of the movies as standalones. Some suggestions of the best movies to watch solo (that can be thoroughly enjoyed without any prior knowledge) include Spider-Man: Far From Home, Black Panther, and Guardians of the Galaxy. 

Almost the entirety of the Marvel franchise can be streamed for free with a subscription to Disney Plus. This is also where new Marvel series’ like WandaVision and Hawkeye were released and now streaming. The Marvel Universe is an extensively detailed franchise that has held popularity for years, and continues to thrive in the cinematic industry.
