There are a total of 26 marvel movies, watching them is a huge task if you don’t know the correct order.

There are two orders in which you can watch all the Marvel movies, the first one is in release order and the second in chronological order. 

The best way to watch is the chronological order because it will keep the story inflow from start to end.

MCU consists of phases in which they release their movies, phase 4 is currently going on and we will talk about all three phases and their movies.
