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.

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.

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.

According to the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH), Instagram is the most harmful social media for psychological health. Every day, we are disappointed when we start comparing our lives to the photos online without even thinking about how these perfect pictures were created. Fortunately, there are users who are ready to reveal what their lives look like without photoshop and filters.
Bright Side is happy to show the photos that will not only give you confidence, but will also improve your mood.

10 Powerful Sculptures That Tell a Story Better Than Any Novel Could
We often take sculptures that surround us for granted, thinking that their only message is the one in plain sight. But it turns out that many of them have a deeper meaning like an angel that is made of weapons given up by those who never want to commit crimes again or a group of ginormous figures that tell us how a new life is born. Sculptures have a whole lot of good stories to share if you’re willing to listen.
Come with Bright Side on a little journey around the globe to see 10 eloquent monuments and sculptures and learn the stories behind them.
1. Knife Angel by Alfie Bradley has persuaded hundreds of people to give up violence.
Alfie Bradley created this breathtaking 27-foot-high angel made of more than 100,000 knives. These weapons were surrendered to knife bins around the UK and were collected by the UK police, knife crime charities, action groups and other people who were affected by knife crimes in one way or another. The Knife Angel travels around the UK to educate people on how important the problem of knife crime is and how dangerous these weapons are. You can learn more about The Knife Angel, the process of its creation, and its current locations here.
2. The Passer-Through-Walls by Jean Marais illustrates the final scene from a famous French novel.
Le Passe-Muraille is a French novel by Marcel Aymé that tells the story of a modest office worker who one day discovers that he has a superpower — he can walk through walls! The hero uses his gift to the fullest to solve problems and becomes a burglar, gets into prison, and escapes until one day he loses his power right on his way through a wall and gets stuck in it. This monument is also quite interactive — the man’s hands are polished by thousands of people who try to help him get out of the wall.
3. Building Bridges by Lorenzo Quinn shares a recipe for a better world.
How do we make our world a better place to live in? Friendship, wisdom, help, faith, hope, and love — these are the ingredients to a better world and happier people according to Lorenzo Quinn, a famous Italian artist. These 6 virtues are embodied in the 6 pairs of hands that build a bridge together. This is one of the latest works by Quinn that was built for 2019’s Venice Art Biennale.
4. Corporate Head by Terry Allen tells us about the danger of being focused on profit at all costs.
The impressive life-sized bronze sculpture of a man who has buried his head in the building resides in Los Angeles, California in the US. The sculpture embodies a businessman who has devoted all his life to gaining profit for himself and the company he works for. He is separated from the office building only from his neck down, which means his thoughts have been completely absorbed by the establishment he works for.
The sculpture illustrates the modern pace of life where people have to carry an economic burden and spend their whole lives working in businesses, often missing out on things that are way more important than material wealth.
5. Sphere Within a Sphere by Arnaldo Pomodoro reminds us of how fragile our planet is.
This wonderful statue mesmerizes viewers with a complex structure of fractured spheres — the outer one and the inner one — and numerous intricate gears inside. The artist, Arnaldo Pomodoro, liked to study simple geometrical forms in his work and managed to hide deep meaning behind those simple forms. The Sphere Within a Sphere once again reminds us how everything in the universe is interconnected, how fragile our world is, and how easily it can be broken into pieces.
6. The Man Who Measures the Clouds by Jan Fabre speaks about the struggles of measuring the immeasurable.
This unique artwork with the gold leaf finishing touch is part of 2019’s Venice Art Biennale and it shows viewers a man rising to a height of 29.5 feet (9 meters) and trying to measure the clouds with a ruler. This sculpture can be interpreted as a person’s desperate attempt to make the impossible possible, as our never-ending striving to surpass ourselves as mankind, or as a nod to ancient philosophy that thought that human beings were the measure of all things.
7. Inertia and The Bankers by Jason Decaires Taylor tackle social issues and call for our responsibility.
The Bankers, Inertia and other marvelous underwater sculptures by Jason Decaires Taylor reveal the most acute problems of modern society, like being obsessed with material wealth and being exposed to mass media’s influence. But apart from that, these unbelievable works serve as homes for coral that are on the verge of extinction in many regions of our planet. By placing his masterpieces underwater in Mexico, the Bahamas, and other places, the artist tries to attract more attention to global climate changes and the things we can do to protect the earth.
8. Absorbed by Light by Gali Lucas and Karoline Hinz honestly tell us how obsessed we’ve become with gadgets and technology.
3 people sitting on a bench, absorbed by their smartphones so much so that they don’t even notice each other. What could illustrate our era better? The installation that was part of the Amsterdam Light Festival symbolizes how modern technology connects and disconnects us at the same time. When you walk at night next time, look around and you’ll see the same picture — dozens of people all around with their faces lit up by their mobile phones. We actually are absorbed by these lights, aren’t we?
9. Trains to Life — Trains to Death by Frank Meisler commemorates children whose lives were saved and taken during the Holocaust.
The impressive work by Frank Meisler is located in Berlin, Germany, and it has 2 parts — 5 figures of boys and girls in dark bronze on one side, and a boy and a girl made of light bronze on the other side. The kids in these 2 parts of the monument gaze into different directions and symbolize 2 different outcomes that awaited children during the Holocaust. The group of 5 figures commemorates the 1.6 million Jewish kids that were sent to concentration camps and were killed, while 2 other kids pay tribute to those 10,000 children that were saved and transported to England.
10. The Miraculous Journey by Damien Hirst shows the stages of a baby’s growth in the womb.
This amazing monument located outside the Sidra Medical and Research Centre in Doha, Qatar, consists of 14 large-scale bronze sculptures, each of them showing a stage of an embryo’s growth in the womb from conception to birth. Being extremely explicit and bold, The Miraculous Journey evoked controversial feelings in the eastern audience and was even covered from public view for some time.
Here’s what Damien Hirst, the creator of the monument said about the ideas he addressed in his work: “Ultimately, the journey a baby goes through before birth is bigger than anything it will experience in its human life. I hope the sculpture will instill in the viewer a sense of awe and wonder at this extraordinary human process, which will soon be occurring in the Sidra Medical Center, as well as every second all across the globe.”
