MCU Chronological Order

Here's a list of every Marvel Cinematic Universe property in the order they take place (not the order they were released, see my release date list for that). Some movies contain conflicting info on when they were set, so this is just a best guess for those.
  1. Captain America: The First Avenger (movie)
  2. Agent Carter season 1 (TV show)
  3. Agent Carter season 2 (TV show)
  4. Agent Carter (one-shot)
  5. Iron Man (movie)
  6. The Incredible Hulk (movie)
  7. Iron Man 2 (movie)*
  8. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor's Hammer (one-shot)*
  9. Thor (movie)*
  10. The Consultant (one-shot)
  11. The Avengers (movie)
  12. Item 47 (one-shot)
  13. Iron Man 3 (movie)

  30. Luke Cage season 1 (Netflix show)**
  31. Agents of SHIELD 3x01-3x19 (TV show)
  32. Captain America: Civil War (movie)
  33. Agents of SHIELD 3x20-4x06 (TV show)
  34. Doctor Strange (movie)
  35. Spider-Man: Homecoming (movie)
  36. Agents of SHIELD 4x07-4x08 (TV show)
  37. Slingshot (web series) 
  38. Agents of SHIELD 4x09-4x22 (TV show)
  39. Inhumans 1x01-1x08 (TV show)
My recommended viewing order is slightly different. I would watch the movies and Agents of SHIELD in the order listed here first. Then watch Agent Carter. After that, watch the Netflix series in the order they aired. This is because Agent Carter makes more sense after watching AoS seasons 1-3 and the Netflix shows are a largely separate story.

*These three items take place roughly simultaneously and are listed in the order they begin. A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor's Hammer takes place during Iron Man 2 as does at least the beginning of Thor.

**These two also overlap


  1. Does agent carter one shot come before or after agent carter

    1. It happens after the TV series (despite being released before it)

    2. This comment has been removed by the author.

    3. If by crosses you mean this thing †, then those denote footnotes

  2. So I presume the other one shot follow after like the way it listed
