The Ultimate MCU Watch Order: Updated and Complete Marvel Cinematic Universe

A spoiler-free first watch? Clear distinction between the bare essentials and extra tangents? Not just another chronological or release order, but a rewatch crafted for a universe? If you want it, this list has it.

If you use the list, let me know how you liked it! Comments are open, so please offer any and all suggestions/feedback.

Some Crucial Disclaimers:

1. For a first-time watch, check the film notes (the orange button above) for a film before watching it for when to skip/watch certain credits scenes. These adjustments are essential for preventing severe spoilers. Pay special attention to Black Widow's notes. Greater detail offered below. (Unless otherwise directed, always stay for the credits!)
