This list depicts the exact order in which the Marvel universe events took place, whereas fans who followed the films as they released were waiting on future films to “fill in the gaps.”
Since not all Marvel films feature exact dates, the list remains relative based on the cinematic storyline and timeframe.
Most Marvel films are available for online or physical rent, but movie theater chain AMC is making headlines.
It announced it will be hosting a 59-hour Marvel marathon for fans to prove their allegiance to the franchise beginning April 23 in select AMC theaters.
