Marvel movies are released almost every year, but they are not necessarily released in chronological order. Watching the MCU movies in sequence would make the storyline so much more logical.
Comic book aficionados who have read the traditional comics already know the sequence, but the rest of the world relies on Marvel’s movies to understand what’s happening. Here’s how to watch the MCU movies in sequence so that the storyline makes more sense.
Captain America: The First Avenger
Of all MCU movies in sequence, Captain America: The First Avenger is technically the first movie fans to watch. It explains how Captain America, aka Steve Rogers, acquires his mighty powers.
