Here’s the Marvel movie order list you didn’t know you needed
A Marvel cinematic universe fan made a list of the correct order to watch the long catalog of superhero movies — along with some brutally honest commentary.
It has gone viral, for all the right reasons—mostly because it’s so accurate.
It began when Victoria Aveyard, the New York Times-bestselling author of the book Red Queen, was asked by her roommate to create a checklist of the perfect order in which to watch the films.
From that request, this beauty was born.

The advice is brutally upfront, and gives potential viewers a sense of the films before they even get started.
She calls Iron Man, “the granddaddy of them all,” while Iron Man 2 is “trash.”
And for Thor, well she advises to just ignore Natalie Portman, who played Thor’s love interest Jane Foster in the first Thor movie. She appeared later in Thor 2: The Dark World, which Aveyard calls “silly.”
She goes on to call the Guardians of the Galaxy “fun,” and describes Doctor Strange as “if House was a Wizard.”
Oh, and if you’re thinking of watching Incredible Hulk at all…just don’t.
Aveyard wrote that her comments were intended to guide her roommate, who doesn’t like war.
But other Marvel fans stand behind her list.
This is outstanding.

No, seriously. I'm a solid Iron Man fan and I can say that IM2 was a filler and IM3 could've been better. https://t.co/2zrpKVhXjD

Others offered up their own tips and tricks to navigate the franchise.
Careful not to watch the post-credit scene on Ant Man and the Wasp. Spoils Infinity War.

If you’re going to watch it as a series, go in storyline chronological order. Not on ratings or popularity.

The latest film in the Marvel cinematic universe, Avengers: Endgame, recently drummed up some attention—and not in a good way. Fans couldn’t see actress Danai Gurira’s name on the original movie poster although her character, Okoye, was clearly visible.
Fans called out Marvel for using a Black woman’s image but not crediting her as highly as other characters. Marvel has since updated the movie poster.
