marvel cinematic universe timeline banner

What started with a small, ambitious, B-character film in 2008’s Iron Man, has expanded to something so much larger and epic than anyone could have every imagined. This is the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline.

What’s in the Marvel Cinematic Universe Timeline?


This is our Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline. It takes all of the media in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and places it in chronological order. The default timeline lists each work in chronological order. An item is placed based on where most of it takes place. We don’t break up stories so that portions of a film take place elsewhere. This list includes media from the following elements of the MCU:

  • The MCU Films: These make up the backbone of the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline. The films started with Iron Man in 2008. However, the first chronological film is Captain America: The First Avenger. Marvel Studios has since continued to release these films at an alarming rate.
  • MCU Television: This timeline includes the shows from ABC that are part of the MCU. These include Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (AOS), Agent Carter, Inhumans and others.
  • MCU Netflix Television: Though they may seem like a completely different universe, the Marvel Netflix shows are also part of the MCU. However, they take place in isolation compared to the rest of the Marvel Universe. These shows include Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, The Defenders, and The Punisher.
  • MCU Tie-in Comics: This timeline includes the tie-in comics that are canonical in the MCU timeline. Usually, these are short preludes to the main films.
  • One-shots: Marvel has produced a few one-shot short films for the MCU. We include these as well.

Where to start watching the MCU films?

The core of the MCU will always be the films. Therefore, television shows like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. come second. Iron Man was the first film released in the MCU, but Captain America: The First Avenger takes place first chronologically. It’s actually okay to watch either first. Additionally, if you want something different than the films, we recommend watching the Netflix series, starting with Daredevil. They have little to do with the films, though they do technically take place in the same universe.

11 thoughts on “Marvel Cinematic Universe Timeline

    1. Well because I’m not sure where else it should go. I’m betting on Avengers 4 “resetting” the universe, so a lot of these shows could take place after with little or no mention of the events of Infinity War. I could be wrong though, and I’ll make that call when Avengers 4 comes out.

  1. Could you please put AOS season 5 and Cloak and Dagger above Infinity War for now. Because I want to do a chronological watching of the MCU and that would screw it up.

    1. I’m not 100% sure that they take place before Infinity War. Parts of AOS season 5 definitely don’t. I have a hunch that Avengers 4 will reset the timeline, which would explain why no one in AOS is freaking out because they’re not turning to dust.

  2. MAoS doesn’t restart until summer of 2019, so that Avengers4 will be completed and they can continue the plot without spoiling anything. It’s very possible — even likely — that Infinity War takes place during the events of season 5, and we haven’t yet seen the consequences of the snap in AoS because it hasn’t yet happened.
