superhero movies They have not passed their best stage in 2023. But once we get past ‘The Marvels’ (which didn’t turn out as bad as we expected) and ‘Ant-Man 3: Quantumania’ (which we didn’t think was as bad either), things can only get better. In 2024, without going any further, we will have the returns of Daredevil and Deadpool, and there is even an alternative to Kang the Conqueror after the arrest of Jonathan Majors (and it is even Spanish, since we are talking about Javier Bardem as Galactus). That’s why fans of the genre should think about the future with hope.
Because it is true that Marvel has not started on the right foot the Multiverse Saga, but there are still more than enough reasons on the horizon to trust. And since we know that more than one of you will want to catch up and review all the tapes from the Stan Lee factory before those reasons come flooding in, we are going to help you with it. It is a titanic task (they are more than 30 movies and more than 15 series), but in this article you will find the Marvel Cinematic Universe (UCM) summarized and ordered according to the chronological order of the story and according to the release date of each tape. We have even added the notes of each film on Rotten Tomatoes. Prepare the popcorn, grab the blanket and… everyone on the couch!
