How to see the Marvel films in sequential order – release order
Best for: People who have never seen a Marvel film.
Here’s how to watch the Marvel movies in chronological sequence to start. We should point out that Marvel movies are divided into Phases, with the end of a Phase often signifying the end of a story arc. Thus, the introduction of fresh, significant characters occurs at the start of a Phase. Phases 1 through 4 are shown below in release order. Yes, that includes The Winter Soldier/Loki/Moon Knight, WandaVision/Falcon, and Falcon. The Disney Plus programmes are just as significant to the overall narrative even though they are not films.

Due to Marvel’s plans for Phase 5 and beyond, we also know a fair amount about what will happen in the future. Deadpool 3 is the only title on the current list that isn’t specifically associated with a Phase, but we feel confident pairing it with Blade for the time being because Fantastic Four will launch Marvel’s Phase 6.
In the meantime, Phase 4 is now complete. Phase 5 begins in February 2023 with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
