Marvel movies streaming guide: Where to watch every movie online

The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) — also known as the biggest movie franchise in history — is the perfect way to satisfy your superhero thirst. Bringing together some of the world’s most-loved heroes, from Iron Man and Thor to Spider-Man and Captain America, Marvel has released more than 20 movies in just a decade. Now entering its fourth phase, the MCU continues to fuse tradition with modernity, combining comic book faves with new additions like Black Panther

With some of the biggest acting names on its roster, this franchise is well worth your time from beginning to end. Thanks to numerous streaming services, you can hit play whenever and wherever you’d like. To do so, you don’t even have to pay for cable.

So whether you want to dig into the entire catalog or experience your favorite character’s ups and downs all over again, here’s how to watch every Marvel movie online.

Your guide on where to stream Marvel movies

Disney+ is the streaming service where you’ll find the majority of MCU movies. Currently, the platform, which costs $6.99/mo. or $69.99/yr. and has 18 of the 23 titles. And two more will appear in the coming months — Avengers: Infinity War is scheduled to hit Disney+ in June 2020 and Ant-Man and the Wasp will air in July 2020.

But don’t expect to find the two Spider-Man movies or The Incredible Hulk on Disney+, due to rights issues. In fact, you won’t find The Incredible Hulk on any subscription streaming service right now; it’s only available to buy or rent. Spider-Man: Homecoming can, however, be viewed via FX, while Spider-Man: Far From Home is available via Starz.

It’s likely most Marvel movies will soon become Disney+ exclusives. But, before that happens, you can catch Avengers: Infinity War and Ant-Man and the Wasp on Netflix. Certain titles from the Captain America, Iron Man and Thor sagas can also be viewed via Amazon Prime, while Ant-Man and Black Panther form part of fuboTV’s on-demand library. 

A number of networks also deliver access to Marvel features. If your TV provider includes Epix, FX, Starz, TBS or TNT, all you have to do is log in to watch the likes of Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

A couple of network channels with Marvel content can be accessed via Prime Video. You can watch Epix for $5.99/mo. with an Amazon Prime subscription ($12.99/mo. or $119/yr.) and Starz content for $8.99/mo. on top of the usual Prime fees. Starz — which currently has access to Spider-Man: Far From Home also has a standalone streaming app that can be downloaded via the App Store, Google Play or Roku.

Here’s a rundown of how much the various streaming services cost:

Current Streaming ProvidersPrice
Amazon Prime Video$12.99/mo.
Disney+$6.99/mo.
Epix$5.99/mo.
fuboTV$54.99/mo.
Netflix Basic$8.99/mo.
Netflix Standard$12.99/mo.
Netflix Premium$15.99/mo.
Starz$8.99/mo.

Renting vs. buying Marvel movies

If you’d rather temporarily or permanently own the entire MCU, you can. There are plenty of places to rent or buy movies from the superhero franchise online, including Google Play, iTunes, Microsoft, Prime Video, Vudu and YouTube. 

Standard-definition (SD) rentals typically cost $2.99 per movie, and high-definition (HD) options $3.99. Buying titles, of course, comes with a higher price tag. SD purchases for a single film tend to range from $9.99 to $14.99, while HD versions can cost up to $19.99. Some sites, such as Microsoft, also offer individual Marvel movies in ultra high definition (UHD) for around $24.99 each.

Although a bundle of every single MCU film doesn’t exist, you can buy all four Avengers movies in one go. Microsoft sells a SD collection for $49.99 while iTunes has a HD version for $59.99.

How to stream Marvel movies in order

Watching the Marvel movies in order of release date isn’t necessarily the best way to enjoy the MCU realm. Instead, watch them in chronological order to understand the true power of Thanos and the Tesseract and the personal journeys of your beloved heroes.

Now known as Captain America, he must balance battles against Nazi organization, Hydra, with a blossoming relationship.

The takeaway

Once you’ve invested in a subscription, Disney+ is the place to watch Marvel movies for free. While most Marvel titles look set to remain on the platform for the foreseeable future, MCU fans would do well to try out the service by signing up for a seven-day free trial.

If you’d like to try an alternative service that houses Marvel features, you can also take advantage of week-long free trials from the likes of fuboTV and Starz. Just remember: some titles may not stick around for long.
