Marvel Cinematic Universe Viewing Order [Timeline Order]


The thing about the Marvel viewing order is there's a couple ways to go about it.  There's Release Order, which is the way the story has/is being told.  There's the 'Suggested Viewing Order' on the Agents of Shield page, which is based a bit on the timeline by moving Captain America to the front of the line.  And then there's the Insane Timeline Viewing Order By Scene.

This is my attempt at a timeline order for Movies, TV Shows, Netflix Shows, One-shots, Webisodes and some Optional Retcon stuff based on things referenced in the movies or TV shows that aren't necessarily contradicted anywhere from what I can tell.  It's not an official part of the MCU, but with some wiggle room, anyone who just wants to make their own MCU a little bigger can include it.  Because Netflix releases their shows in bulk, I'm going the additional step to order them as well based on the weather in the scenes.  I will update periodically.

(1946) Agent Carter S1E1 - Now is Not the End

(1947) Agent Carter S2E3 - Better Angels
(1947) Agent Carter S2E4 - Smoke and Mirrors

(1947) Agent Carter S2E8 - The Edge of Mystery
(1947) Agent Carter S2E9 - A Little Song and Dance
(1947) Agent Carter S2E10 - Hollywood Ending

(1948) Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter
(The One-Shot came out and inspired the TV show, but at the end of it, Howard Stark calls to say Peggy will be joining him to create S.H.I.E.L.D.  They state that she has yet to be sent on a mission following the war.  The wiggle room for this seems like she has yet to be sent on a mission by Captain Flynn.  The captain in the TV show is Chief Dooley, who dies in Season 1.  Season 2 takes place in LA.  Presumably Peggy and Daniel move back to New York. Since the show was canceled before S.H.I.E.L.D. was created and the One-Shot results in it's creation, all things considered, it seems like the only place it could go.)

(Aug 1986) Howard the Duck - Strange? Yeah.  You can thank Guardians of the Galaxy for this one.  Initially, he was just a funny Easter Egg, but after making another appearance in the second movie, he's clearly part of the universe.  And while the movie is horrible, it's there.

(Aug 1998) Blade - This one has a little more substance.  Kevin Fiege and Wesley Snipes themselves have given round-a-bout head nods that this will be a thing; Fiege confirming they have plans for Blade and Snipes implying positive talks with Marvel about Blade 4.  

(Mar 2002) Blade II

(Dec 2004) Blade Trinity

(Mar 2006) Slither (James Gunn slid them into a tank in the Collector's collection.  I include it for now. If its true that Nathan Fillion will be Wonderman, then I'll pull it out. )

(Feb 2007) Ghost Rider - Questionable, but nothing in it directly contradicts the MCU.  In fact, with the current Ghost Rider from Agents of Shield, it implies that Johnny Blaze passed the Ghost Rider to Robbie Reyes.  So, while the movies are not the same caliber of the movies in the MCU, there's no continuity issues with the first one. The second has Idris Elba however, which creates a situation where he'd play two characters in a retconned MCU, so I don't include it.  Additionally, the deal with the devil plays out different for no clear reason.

(May 2008) Iron Man

(June 2008) The Incredible Hulk

(June 2008) Marvel One-Shot: The Consultant

(May 2010) Iron Man 2

(May 2010) Marvel One-Shot: Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor's Hammer

(May 2010) Thor
(While released in 2011, originally had a 2010 release and the events of 'Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor's Hammer' imply the events happened in closer time span than the movie release dates.)

(July 2012) The Avengers
(fun fact, Agent Carter's love interest in the TV show, Daniel Sousa, is the same actor (Enver Gjokaj) as one of the two cops Cap gives orders to at one point. Fan retcon to grandson of Agent Carter?)
