UPDATED: Marvel Cinematic Universe Watch Order | ComicUI’s Countdown to Infinity War

by Christopher DillardDecember 8, 2017

UPDATED: Avengers: Infinity War has moved to April 27 ruining our calendar! Thankfully, since Black Panther will still be in theaters, we’ll be unable to get a home release of the movie and will be leaving it off our Watch List for this year. While we LOVED Black Panther, this circumstance has made us leave it off the list for now.

Marvel’s culmination on their first 3 phases of cinematic mastery is coming to it’s final steps in the coming years. Kicking off with Avengers: Infinity War in May 2018 and ending with Avengers 4 (untitled) in May 2019. Here at ComicUI, we see a lot of videos and posts telling you how and when to watch all of the Marvel Studios films to be ready for Infinity War and we know that the majority of them are wrong.

Why are they wrong you ask? A lot haven’t counted the weeks properly, suggesting you start in January and watch one a week. This leaves you with one week to watch two films, and who has THAT time? Another suggests you start with Captain America: The First Avenger, and while that may be chronologically correct for the majority of the film, you have to learn about the Stark family in Iron Man and Iron Man 2 first.

To combat this, here at ComicUI we’re giving you the watch order of every Marvel Cinematic Universe film and simplify it by suggesting you watch it by release date. There will be 18 of them by the time Infinity War hits, do you have what it takes to watch one a week with us??

The ComicUI MCU Calendar will start the weekend of December 29 and continue every weekend until May 4. Here’s our order!
