Marvel movies on Disney Plus


As Marvel is owned by Disney, you can watch most of the MCU movies whenever you like if you’re a subscriber to the studio’s very own streaming service: Disney Plus.

That said, there are a few movies missing from the platform at the time of writing, specifically The Incredible Hulk (as it is owned by Universal) and Tom Holland’s recent Spider-Man movies (as they were co-produced with Sony Pictures).

Cinematic releases Black Widow, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Eternals, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and Thor: Love and Thunder have all made their way to Disney Plus in recent months.

You also have a few more TV series coming to Disney Plus. You’ve probably already watched WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, the animated series What If…, Hawkeye, Moon Knight, Ms Marvel, She-Hulk: Attorney At Law, and Werewolf By Night.

As well as these series, we have coming up:

  • Secret Invasion (Spring 2023)
  • Loki season 2 (Summer 2023)
  • Echo (2023/2024)
  • Ironheart (2023/2024)
  • Agatha: Coven of Chaos (2023/2024)
  • Daredevil (2024)
  • Wonder Man (TBA)
  • Vision Quest (TBA)
  • Wakanda Series (TBA)

What’s the best way to watch the Marvel movies in order?

While the choice is yours entirely, we’d recommend just watching in plain ol’ release order – it’s the order in which the films were produced and so, ultimately, the order in which they are best viewed…. at least if you’re an MCU newbie, with post-credits scenes, Easter eggs and so on all making the most sense viewed in this order.

We would advise against using the chronological order if you’re a total newcomer to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While the method sounds appealing in theory, there are several reasons why it could actually hamper your overall experience of the MCU.

First off: you may struggle to remember the background of certain characters. Captain Marvel, for instance, will be introduced in the second film in the list, but won’t be mentioned again until more than 40 screen hours later.

Also, making Captain Marvel your second MCU movie means you miss out on the in-jokes and references established over 17 preceding entries.

However, there is something to be said for ardent Marvel fans revisiting the saga chronologically, as this will give more depth to the backstory of some key characters and brings a new understanding of the MCU timeline (e.g. many don’t realise that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 1 and 2 are set mere months apart).
