this is quite interesting! while i enjoy the captain america movies quite a bit, i think the first iron man is still the best the MCU has to offer. it's 100% a character movie, and has the best acting out of all the movies. the ending was pretty lame, but that goes for 99% of superhero flicks, MCU included.

and i do enjoy the first Cap a lot! it was much higher in my list until yesterday i think, and i'm starting to think i prefer it over winter soldier. i had only watched winter soldier once, and i held it in a very high regard, but rewatching it showed me the movie isn't as great, even if still pretty awesome. CAPTAIN marvel and the first Avengers are just movies i enjoy too much. if it wasn't for that, the captain america movies would be 2-4, alongside the first and third Iron Man.

Marvel Marathon Update: I showed my little cousing Guardians of the Galaxy. She loved it, though she got bored in the Knowhere scenes. Nevertheless, it's high up on her list.

Even though Carol Danvers is her favorite MCU superhero right now, as a movie she's thinking less and less of Captain Marvel. It just dropped under the first Captain America, despite her first thoughts being that it was better that Captain America.

Her current list:

  1. Captain America: The Winter Soldier
  2. Thor
  3. Guardians of the Galaxy
  4. The Avengers
  5. Iron Man
  6. Captain America: The First Avenger
  7. Captain Marvel
  8. Iron Man 3
  9. Thor: The Dark World
  10. Iron Man 2
Next up is either Guardians 2 or Age of Ultron. When would you guys suggest showing Guardians 2 to her? Immediately after Guardians 1? Before Infinity War? Somewhere else? Below is the order we're going with, minus Guardians 2.

Avengers: Age of Ultron
Ant-Man
Civil War
Black Panther
Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man
Doctor Strange
Ant-Man & The Wasp (except post-credits scene)
Thor: Ragnarok
Avengers: Infinity War
Avengers: Endgame

i'd suggest going release order tbh. that's how we all experienced it, and honestly if you're watching the films back to back it all makes sense. why did you opt for your order?

I made it according to the times they take place.

Black Panther - one week after Civil War
Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man - Two months after Civil War
Doctor Strange - Starts at Late 2016
Ant-Man & The Wasp - Right before or at the Same time as Infinity War, but very disconnected with it
Thor: Ragnarok - Right before Infinity War, two years after Age of Ultron
Infinity War - Right after Ragnarok
Endgame - Right after Infinity War

Feels like it flows better... Though I might put Ant-Man & The Wasp after Infinity War for the quantum stuff I suppose.

oh! makes sense. that's a nice idea, though i still prefer watching release order for pretty much anything. 

and regarding the time the films take place, i thought spider-man took place 8 years after the first avengers? but civil war was 8 years after the first iron man. i thought there were at least a few years in between the first iron man and the first avengers. hmm

edit: just checked my copy of homecoming, and it does say 2 months after civil war, but at the beginning it says 8 years after the first avengers. i'll have to check civil war later to see if it really says it's 8 years after Iron Man (which would make sense considering that the movies sort of kind of take place in the year they're released, right?)

I suggest you don't worry about the timeline because it is beyond repair at the moment. All we can do is cut the most offensive inconsistencies like Bobson Dugnutt did in his Spider-Man edit.

Best just to come up with some head-canon that works for you and stick with it, every official and unofficial MCU timeline has contradicted something from one of the films. I firmly believe the Spider-Man "8 years" thing is the biggest issue in that regard, and I just assume it's blatantly wrong or rounding up/down.

Oh yeah, it's best to just ignore the "8 years" bit in Homecoming. It's the only thing that *really* screws with the timeline (though placing Phase 1 movies in the right year is a matter of debate as well).

yeah, i guess Homecoming is the one that screwed up the most. regarding phase 1: Iron Man 2 is 6 months after Iron Man, and happens roughly at the same time as The Incredible Hulk. the Earth segment in Thor happens immediately after Iron Man 2. the 'present day' bits of The First Avenger are when? 2011 i think? which means:
  • Iron Man: 2008
  • Iron Man 2: six months after that (2009ish?)
  • The Incredible Hulk: ''
  • Thor: immediately afer the previous 2 movies (so still 2009ish)
  • Captain America: 2011?
  • The Avengers: 2012
that's sort of what i'm working with right now.

correction: i think Captain America is just a few weeks (at most) before Avengers. hm
