After taking some time off during the pandemic, Marvel Studios is churning out the content once again.

As soon as 2021 started, the studio got right to it.

Just a few months into the year, the studio has released two very good TV shows on Disney+, with more movies and shows on the way.

As someone who had only seen two of the 23 Marvel films, my interest was piqued when Disney+ put out “WandaVision” earlier this year. I was aware that it starred Elizabeth Olsen, who plays a superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but other than that, I knew nothing.

After I saw the hype each week when a new episode came out, I decided to dive in head first. Was I confused at first? Very. Did I end up learning of some spoilers? Most definitely. But man, was I intrigued.

My usual consumption of TV is “Real Housewives” with a side of a quirky comedy, so I was shocked that I was enjoying a TV show with superheroes, and every week, I kept coming back to see what was going to happen.

Once “WandaVision” ended, I knew that I had to watch the rest of the Marvel movies. If you’ve seen even just a few of the films, you know that there are lots. You also probably know there are different ways you can watch them.

You can watch the Marvel films in the order they were released in theaters, or you can watch them in timeline order, meaning when the movies take place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
