Marvel Movies are kind of like a timeline.
Believe us when we say that you should watch every Marvel film in chronological sequence before seeing the newest instalment, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, in a theatre. It will only become more difficult to keep track of everything when the MCU grows to incorporate the multiverse, so you'll need a thorough refresher.
Each fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe must watch the films in order. Let's be honest, it just feels strange if you start with the third movie about a superhero who can communicate with ants and visits a minuscule realm beneath ours. In contrast, if you start with Iron Man and progress through The Avengers and beyond before watching Quantumania... It's still quite strange, but at least you know how you got there.
Seeing the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), which currently consists of 31 movies, in order is difficult, which is why we've put together this simple summary. Start your MCU marathon right away if you have a few free hours—or, let's be honest, a long weekend.
You can watch the majority of the movies on Disney+, but you'll have to look elsewhere for The Incredible Hulk and the Spider-Man movies. Continue reading to learn the precise chronological order you should watch the movies. Morbius and Venom are not included in this breakdown because we are just discussing the MCU.

After the events of Avengers: Endgame, Ant-Man is looking forward to some downtime, but his grown-up daughter Cassie has other plans, and the three of them unintentionally enter the Quantum Realm along with Hope and her parents.
It turns out that Janet Van Dyne has been lying about an entire society in the Quantum Realm that is headed by the strong ruler Kang the Conqueror, whom she unintentionally installed in that position prior to leaving for home.
Kang is willing to use threats against Cassie to persuade Ant-Man to assist him to escape the Quantum Realm so he may take over and ruin even more realities. Imagine the entire family getting in gear to overthrow him and save the day. Despite the strange interactions with time and quantum hijinks, this one fits into the timeline with ease.
