11 years have passed and an era has just ended for the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the release of Avengers: Endgame this April. This is the final chapter of the heroes we looked forward to seeing on the screen each season. It’s no news to the fans of this universe, that all films are interconnected and have a chronological order that doesn’t match their release dates. From the birth of Captain America to the shocking defeat against Thanos, it only takes a quick look at the comics to see it. In the new production, the quest will be to face the terrible titan and seek to reverse the damage done by the Infinity Gauntlet.
Bright Side was filled with nostalgia to see the end of this era, so we’ll share with you the list of the movies organized in the correct order of the story. This way you can see them before the last premiere.
1. Captain Marvel (2019)
The Starforce captures Carol Danvers and takes her to the Supreme Intelligence. In the movie, we discover how Fury lost his left eye. We also get a look at who’s monitoring the pager that Danvers gave him in case he needed it.
A scene between the credits shows how Steve Rogers, Natasha Romanoff, and the rest of the group monitor the pager activated by Fury before it disintegrates. It also shows how Danvers appears years later looking for him.
2. Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)
Captain America is the oldest of all the superheroes. The story begins during World War II, where Steve Rogers meets Tony Stark’s father. Here we find out that Stark gave him his nearly indestructible shield.
The key scenes, however, are shown after the credits. Captain America wakes up 60 years later and meets Nick Fury to found the league of The Avengers. It’s also seen how Red Skull discovers the Tesseract, which he would use to boost his technology.
3. Iron Man (2008)
Iron Man was the first movie of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to be released. The film portrays the story of Tony Stark. He is kidnapped by terrorists and attempts to develop a suit that will help him escape. He later destroys the armored suit in the desert and starts secretly building an improved version of it. This is how he becomes Iron Man.
The film also shows Nick Fury inviting Tony Stark to join The Avengers in a scene after the credits.
4. The Incredible Hulk (2008)
The movie recounts the story of Bruce Banner in the comics that Marvel titled: Fury’s Big Week. Banner is a scientist who wants to make humans immune to gamma radiation by recreating the World War II Super Soldier Program.
In the last scene, Tony Stark argues with Ross about the Harlem incident while at a local bar, reminding him that the program has been suspended and offering him a chance to form a team.
5. Iron Man 2 (2010)
After Tony Stark’s identity is revealed, Ivan Vanco creates a mini arc reactor similar to the one Stark has. The reactor becomes a success for its peaceful intentions, but Tony Stark gets accused by the government of being in possession of specialized weapons.
As with many Marvel movies, the key feature is in the scenes after the credits. Phil Coulson, a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, arrives in New Mexico where authorities appear to have found a crater. He contacts Fury to inform him about his new finding: Thor’s hammer.
6. Thor (2011)
Frost Giants burst into Thor’s coronation to recover the Casket but are stopped by Odin. After a failed attempt to try to solve the problem, Thor sparks an intense battle for which his father divests him of his powers, the throne, and sends him to Earth, where he loses his hammer.
After the credits, we see Erik Selving working beside Nick Fury. He asks Erik to analyze the Tesseract because of its incalculable potential power. However, it’s only after Thor’s brother, Loki, intervenes that Erik agrees.
7. The Avengers (2012)
It’s the first movie that portrays the Avengers together for the first time on screen. This time Loki meets the Chitauri’s leader, the Other. They agree to recover the Tesseract by working together in exchange for an army to dominate the Earth.
Scenes in the credits show the Chitauri’s leader complaining to his master about the mistake of believing humans were weak and explaining that attacking them would be flirting with death. It’s the first time in the Marvel saga in which Thanos is revealed as the master. Finally, we get to see the whole team eating together in silence at a restaurant.
8. Iron Man 3 (2013)
Tony Stark gives a conference about integrated circuits at a New Year’s Eve party. After his unfortunate performance, Stark meets Aldrich Kilian who offers him a place in his A.I.M. project, Advanced Idea Mechanics.
When the credits are finished, we see Tony Stark narrating his experience to Bruce Banner. He had fallen asleep and had to explain to Stark that he wasn’t that kind of doctor. We can also see the phrase Tony Stark will be back.
9. Thor: The Dark World (2013)
In this Thor sequel, the Dark Elves, guided by Malekith, attempt to conquer entire realms using the power of the Aether, the Reality Stone. They seek to restore the energy state in which the Dark Elves prosper.
Post-credit scenes show the Reality Stone in the hands of the Collector. The final scene portrays Jane and Thor kissing passionately while a Frost giant from Jotunheim is accidentally transported to Earth.
10. Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014)
Following a conspiracy inside S.H.I.E.L.D., Captain America doesn’t know who to trust, until he discovers Hydra has been constantly interfering in the organization. This is how the movie prepares fans for Avengers: Age of Ultron.
Key scenes are revealed after the credits. In one of these, Von Strucker proclaims at a Hydra laboratory that “the age of miracles” has begun. Finally, let’s not forget the final part in which Barnes visits his own memorial and the Smithsonian Institute.
11. Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)
The Reality Stone is protected in the interior of the Orb, which will kill whoever holds it, except the most powerful. This is how the true nature of Peter Quill is revealed and he and his team join the Nova Corps to confront the Dark Aster at Xandar. Star-Lord and his followers get to put the purple gem in Nova Prime’s power.
12. Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015)
Ultron is born after the Mind Gem is snatched away from Baron Strucker, thanks to the Avengers. The stone finally appears in front of the artificial intelligence that was created by Tony Stark and the Vision, an android robot that emerged from the J.A.R.V.I.S. evolution.
After the credits, we see Thanos putting on the Infinity Gauntlet and disappointed by his pawns’ actions, he swears to retrieve the Infinity Stones himself.
13. Ant-Man (2015)
Hank Pym quits S.H.I.E.L.D. after discovering their attempt to replicate Ant-Man’s shrinking technology. He found it extremely dangerous and swears to keep it hidden while he’s still alive. Later on, he hires Scott Lang to steal the suit as part of a test.
In the last scenes, Hank shows a new Wasp suit and offers it to Hope. We also get to see that Sam Wilson and Steve Rogers have Bucky Barnes in their custody. They are unable to contact Tony Stark, but Wilson suggests that he knows someone who can help.
14. Capitan America: Civil War (2016)
This movie takes place after the Ultron Era and the destruction of Sokovia. Politicians demand that the Avengers work under the authorities supervision. This inevitably divides the Avengers into 2 sides: One led by Tony Stark and the other one by Steve Rogers.
We also see Spider-Man come into play and watch Black Panther’s appearance suggested after the credits in a shot that portrays Bucky taking refuge in Wakanda and choosing to go back to cryogenic sleep.
15. Dr. Strange (2016)
Set in New York, Stephen Strange looks for a cure for his hand wounds to be able to continue his profession as a neurosurgeon. He does this with the help of Christine Palmer, but their search is unsuccessful. When he’s about to go bankrupt, he finds out about Jonathan Pangborn, a paraplegic who mysteriously recovered the use of his legs.
At the end of the film, Strange decides to help Thor, who has brought his brother along with him to look for Odin, their father. In a post-credit scene, Mordo confronts Pangborn and steals all the mystic energy arguing that there are “too many sorcerers” already.
16. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017)
The Guardians protect valuable batteries from an inter-dimensional monster in exchange for Gamora’s distanced sister. Upon finding Nebula they decide to form an uncommon alliance, but later on, she chooses to leave and continue the search to eliminate Thanos on her own.
At the end of the movie credits, Kraglin takes possession of the telekinetic arrow and Ravager leader, Stakar Ogord, rejoins with his team. We also see Groot as an adolescent and watch Ayesha create a new being to destroy all the Guardians.
17. Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)
This story begins a few days following the Civil War. Peter Parker has a fight against the Vulture and his band of criminals, the distributors of Chitauri technology guns. The movie shows how Tony Stark becomes Spider-Man’s mentor and gifts him with a new suit.
In the scenes after the credits, Gargan hears that Toomes knows Spider-Man’s real identity but when confronted, he denies it all.
18. Thor: Ragnarok (2017)
2 years after the battle of Sokovia, Surtur kidnaps Thor. He tells him that his father is no longer on Asgard and assures him that the realm would soon be destroyed by Ragnarok. Thor tries to convince Hulk and 142 to help him save Asgard, but none of them accept at the beginning. We also see Hulk transform into Bruce Banner for the first time since Sokovia.
Thor decides to take his people to Earth on board the Grandmaster’s ships, but is intercepted by a spaceship. The last scene depicts the Grandmaster confronting his former subjects.
19. Black Panther (2018)
In Wakanda, T’Challa is pronounced king after his father’s death and undertakes the Black Panther’s strength. Erik Killmonger threatens to usurp the throne and defeats T’Challa after a mission in which the king finds Klaue and some stolen vibranium.
20. Avengers: Infinity War (2018)
Thanos, a merciless intergalactic titan, looks for the Infinity Stones which hold unimaginable power to force his will onto reality. Thor tries to kill him but Thanos manages to use the Infinity Gauntlet’s power to teleport to an unknown location.
In the streets of New York, we see Fury and Maria Hill, after the credits, trying to find Tony Stark who has been out of sight for a long time. In the meantime, alien sightings are reported in Wakanda. Many incidents invade the city which are Thanos’ doings, and which prevent Fury from sending an emergency signal from a pager marked with Captain Marvel’s badge.
21. Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018)
Scott Lang tries to live a normal life while living under house arrest when he’s called to join a mission. He’s asked to discover information about Pym’s past and for this quest, and is counting on help from Van Dyne.
The connection with the next Marvel Studios production is in the scene where we see Scott arrive at an empty house and spot a big ant touching his drums. At the end of the film, the screen reads Ant-Man and the Wasp will return, making room for the new Avengers: End Game.

Lil Nas X and Wrangler’s “Old Town Road” clothing line inspires country music fan backlash
“Old Town Road” star Lil Nas X’s latest move is into fashion, courtesy of a collaboration with Wrangler, the legacy denim and apparel brand that’s become a signature element of the Western aesthetic.
The chart-topping rapper has partnered with the company to launch a capsule clothing collection inspired by his hit song and featuring graphic T-shirts, jeans, and other denim apparel. The collaboration is essentially an extension of one of the most memorable lyrics in “Old Town Road,” which shouts out Wrangler by name: “Cowboy hat from Gucci / Wrangler on my booty.”
Wrangler describes the capsule collection, which launched May 20, as “fresh remixes of classic Wrangler styles for the kind of modern cowboy that can’t be put in a box.”
That’s a cheeky reference to “Old Town Road” itself, which sparked an intense debate over whether the song counts as country music when it debuted on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart in March, and was subsequently removed. Despite its references to established Western themes and imagery — the song’s lyrics revolve around a lone cowboy riding his horse into the sunset, after all — Billboard said the song “does not embrace enough elements of today’s country music to chart in its current version.”
Some country music fans and industry observers agreed, arguing that “Old Town Road” qualifies more as hip-hop than country. Others criticized Billboard for feeding rigid ideas about who or what qualifies as country enough, and suggested that Lil Nas X’s race played a part in the song’s reclassification; the fact that Lil Nas X is a black teenager from Atlanta and country is a predominantly white genre did not go unnoticed.
The song quickly became the catalyst for an industry-wide discussion about the definition of country music and racially tinged gatekeeping within the genre. It also became the top song in the country, and has now been No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for six weeks straight.
Just like the song itself riled some country music fans amid an outpouring of support for Lil Nas X from his own expansive fanbase, the rapper’s collaboration with Wrangler has met with a polarized response.
The Lil Nas X capsule collection is clearly intended to celebrate and capitalize on the success of “Old Town Road.” Although many Lil Nas X fans have expressed interest in buying the collection, Wrangler is also facing criticism from some consumers, many of whom are threatening to boycott.
Much of the backlash is playing out on social media, where Wrangler has received thousands of comments from customers expressing anger and “disappointment.” (It is unclear if customers have also been contacting the company via other, less public methods; Vox has reached out to Wrangler for comment.) And much of the current conversation revolves around how Wrangler seems to be promoting inclusivity by branching out from its reputation as a brand worn by cowboys and farmers.
Two recent Instagram posts from Wrangler showcasing items from its Lil Nas X collection have received more than 1,000 comments each. While plenty of people have commented on how awesome it looks or asking questions about where to buy, several have declared that the “Old Town Road” items are “ruining the cowboy name that y’all have.”
“Wranglers are to be worn by cowboys and farmers not rappers this is very disappointing,” reads one representative Instagram comment.
Some commenters have more explicitly mentioned race — or called out others’ racism.
“This is the dumbest thing i have seen all day,” one user wrote. “Wtf @wrangler? Why is it about diversity and equality ? There jeans. Quit playin politics.”

Lil Nas X, for his part, seemed mildly surprised by the response.
i mean honestly white people act like they are the only ones who are cowboys. come to my town in louisiana, we pull up to mcdonalds on horses and have rodeos every weekend.
— Blair Waldorf (@teonnyspears) May 21, 2019
These comments are in the same vein as those used by some country music fans to describe “Old Town Road” when the song made its chart debut, arguing that rappers have no place in the genre (often while neglecting to acknowledge modern country’s own hip-hop influences). Lingering over this debate is race, which many Instagram users have called out in the comments on Wrangler’s posts. Country music is perceived as an insular, predominantly white genre, while Lil Nas X is a black rapper who draws influences from black artists and musical styles.
But Wrangler’s continued support of Lil Nas X is clear; the brand has been actively responding to its detractors on social media, simply repeating on that is devoted to creating high-quality products for all of its customers.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the drama over the Lil Nas X collection has only served to draw more attention to it. Some pieces have already sold out, like a pair of shorts that say “Wrangler” on the booty, in keeping with the lyrics of “Old Town Road.” Considering that items in the collection cost between $39 for a graphic T-shirt and $129 for a pair of jeans, the outcry, at least from Wrangler’s perspective, seems to have paid off.
