Marvel Cinematic Universe Timeline


TIMELINE OF EVENTS

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is one of the biggest and most expansive universes ever created for the big screen. With over 25 films and multiple series, at times it can be difficult to remember what order all of these chronologically occur. Thankfully we’ve collated all of this, along with our own reviews on these films and shows, into one single, handy timeline.

Feel free to click on the logos or text underneath to bring up our review. We’ll be sure to update this page frequently as more shows and films are announced, as well as the backlog for films and shows are watched.

It’s also worth noting too that the dark grey background denotes the big-event films and series – the ones that bring all of characters together for a climactic fight.
