When Phase 2 comes around in the Marvel CInematic universe, the beginning of Agents of S.H.I.E.LD. starts giving a real timeline, and order of events, with their crossovers both after Thor 2’s release, and after Cap 2. I will use the release order as a reference, and split it in chapters, with Marvel One Shots placed at a good spot, with indications beforehand of the stories continued in that chapter.
Welcome to How to Watch This Show, and we are going to start with not quite a tv show, but a multimedia franchise : the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
it started as a few movie franchises crossing over through cameos, and ended up as a giant, multi franchise connective tissue, in theaters, on tv, and soon, on Netflix.
It is also a lot of interconnecting franchises, with story points and characters crossing over from one to the other, which can make following it difficult, especially if you don’t wish to watch it as a whole. This is why I have divided it in small chapters, with content of only one franchise in each of them, and will give you, before the description of each chapter, the previous plot threads that will be continued on in said chapter, so you can decide whether or not you are invested enough in the story lines to watch it.
So let’s get started !
