Start MCU correctly in chronological order
The launch of Disney + gives you the opportunity to watch many movies from the Marvel Cinematic Universe at the same time. But Disney doesn't list movies in chronological order, so we've summarized the correct order for Marvel movies for you.
With the Marvel Cinematic Universe [MCU], the comics world has leapt to the big screen. Marvel's film industry now includes 23 movies, many of which are superhero blockbusters that can now be easily played on Disney +. However, newcomers to the MCU should be vigilant: you can't just start with every Marvel movie. At first glance, the order of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is not obvious, but it is worth experiencing the stories that creators expect.
Since Disney + only lists Marvel titles, we've summarized the correct chronological order for you on this page. However, Disney + does not yet [yet] own the rights to all MCU movies, so we will also tell you the rights to buy or play movies elsewhere. If you don't want to spend that much time, we will tell you on the next page if you can skip some Marvel movies without knowing a lot of situations, and the necessity of Marvel series movies. Last but not least, we explain why movies like "Spider-Man: A New Universe" don't belong to the MCU.

Marvel order for release year
All movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe are particularly easy to catch up if you follow the release order produced by Marvel. After all, these stories are told in the order they were first published. In the further development of MCU, more and more storylines span several movies, so it is difficult for novices. Here you can find official orders for all movies in the first three stages of the MCU!
The first stage
This table shows you the corresponding availability of streams from German streaming providers. For this, we checked Disney +, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Sky, iTunes, and Co.
¹Although Hulk has been an important part of Marvel's film industry from the beginning, so far, the way the characters are handled has been somewhat different. Because although all other Avengers have received several single films since the first hour, the Hulk has only appeared in movies of other heroes since The Incredible Hulk. This is because the character Hulk belongs to Marvel, so it may appear in "Avengers" or "Thor" movies, which is the copyright of all "Hulk" personal films of Universal Pictures. As a result, the important Hulk story in the comic "Planet Hulk" was simply dealt with in Thor: Final Battle.
²Although movies about Captain America are named after him around the world, Germany has taken a different approach. There is concern that the term "American" will repel German audiences because it implies American patriotism. In fact, the first Captain America movie, which was subsequently released under the name "Captain America: The First Avengers," earned far less than "Thunder" a few months ago. In the two subsequent works, Captain America was titled "The First Avengers", so that the Avengers fans who are vital to the United States have the opportunity to get this movie. Of course, in the movie itself, he is also known as Captain America in Germany, and everything else will become a voiceover nightmare!
The third stage³
³ Marvel Cinematic universe's films are divided into stages. These can be understood as a series of seasons, and finally, the most important moments are always waiting for you. The first phase includes an introduction to the Avengers and the first adventure together. Phase 2 introduces new heroes to Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man, but other aspects mainly include a sequel to the old hero and another Avengers event. The third stage was particularly extensive, focusing mainly on the battle with Thanos.
Phase 4: Continue
The fourth phase of the MCU will be significantly shorter than the expansion phase 3. Also, things are easier, so you shouldn't expect an epic battle in the order of "endgame" in the near future. The film "Black Widow" begins a new phase, with Scarlett Johansson returning to the role of Russian agent Natascha Romanoff. However, before the world has recovered from the corona virus, the company's founding date has been postponed indefinitely.

Marvel One-Shots: optional extension
At the beginning of the Marvel Cinematic World, Blu-ray buyers were often shown very special add-ons. The so-called "Marvel One-Shots" are short films that play or continue to play during MCU movie events. Most of these scenes are humorous and have no significance to the Marvel universe, but we still have to mention them.

Initially, it was planned to make smaller characters in the Marvel comics world appear in a single shot, and then, if the response was good, you could make your own movie. However, the idea was quickly abandoned, and the production of single shots soon ended.
It takes a lot of effort to tell a short but compelling story without encountering too high a cost. However, the project has not been suspended, so in theory, one shot can be resumed at any time. To a certain extent, they even did this with the Taik Waititi, the imitator of director Ty: Decision Day, explaining Thor and Hulk in "The First Avengers: Civil War" What you did in the incident. experienced.
There were two subsequent sequels, Team of Thor: Part 2 and Team of Darryl. These sequels were also published online, and Team of Darryl was released after Thor: Final Battle. You can watch all three movies at once on YouTube.
