Loki appears to have occurred outside of the timeline itself since we see the inner workings of the Tva replacing it at the end of the watch list, mostly because the show is about the whole MCU Timeline. Whether it’s Loki dealing with events from every stage of the MCU, such as his defeat in New York, his mother’s death, and his own death at Thanos’ hands.
And so, this is the full list of Marvel movies placed in the correct chronological order for those who are looking to binge-watch all the Marvel movies in one run… or two. Hopefully, this list will help you watch your favorite movies without wasting your time researching the events of MCU.
