A Marvel Movie Marathon by Shoshana P.
Updated: May 22
We’ve been in quarantine for a while, and it’s becoming a struggle to find something the whole family can watch. So if you’re like my family and just haven’t had the chance to keep up with the franchise, this is your opportunity to watch all 23 Marvel movies in the Infinity Saga.
Why watch Marvel?
With different ages and interests to accommodate, it’s hard enough to find a single movie everyone wants to watch, let alone enough for weeks of movie nights. But the Marvel movies hit that sweet spot: appropriate for younger siblings, tolerable for parents, and entertaining all around!
Navigating this many movies can seem a daunting challenge. While some people argue in favor of watching them in order of the time they’re set, the simplest and most logical order is in order of release date. You can google a list of the films in order of release date and work your way through Phase One, Phase Two, and Phase Three, which make up what is known as the Infinity Saga. If you don’t get every little detail, don’t worry. The plots can become a bit convoluted at points, but you’re still watching them in the right order.
Doesn’t it get boring?
You may be assuming that with 23 movies about superheroes, the plots get a bit repetitive. And while many of them follow a typical superhero movie script, the overarching plot throughout the saga keeps it from being boring. Also, each movie brings in at least a couple new characters, some funny exchanges for comic relief, and different fantasy elements.
How long does it take?
Watching a movie a night, taking a couple breaks, and spreading some of the longer movies over two nights, it should take about a month to watch all 23 movies.
So grab some popcorn, battle over your favorite spot on the couch, and enjoy!
