Where to Watch Every Marvel Movie in the Cinematic Universe — And Spider-Man Movies, Too

Should you watch 'Iron Man 3' before 'Thor: The Dark World'? And where are all of these things streaming?

Marvel

After the conclusion of WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and Loki on the way, you may be ready to rewatch a bunch of entries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But where are they all streaming? The short easy answer is “Disney+” and that’s mostly true. But what about those pesky Spider-Man movies?

Including the old Spider-Man movies, where can you watch all the Marvel movies online right now? Right now, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is making it easier and easier to catch all the adventures of Iron Man, Thor, and the rest of the Avengers in one place. In fact, eventually, all the Marvel Cinematic Universe (with the possible exception of Spider-Man?) will end up on Disney+.

To help you navigate all of this, we’ve assembled a complete guide to where the Marvel Cinematic Universe stands in the streaming wars. From Iron Man to Endgame, to Black Widow,  it’s all here.

Old school Spider-Man movies, streaming 

For now, because Spidey is still on loan to Marvel/Disney from Sony, the vast majority of Spidey movies are kind of hard to stream. In 2022, Spidey movies might start popping up on Netflix, and eventually, Disney+. But for now, here’s your guide.

Spider-Man (2002)

This modern classic isn’t easy to watch for free online. You’ll either have to rent it on YouTube or subscribe to Starz. If you do subscribe to Starz, you can watch this “for free” with Hulu or Amazon Prime.

Spider-Man 2 (2004)

This excellent sequel, co-written by Michael Chabon featured Albert Molina as Doc Ock. Looks like Doc Ock will return to the MCU very soon! But, again if you don’t have Starz, you’ll have to rent it on Amazon Prime. You can also rent it on iTunes.

Spider-Man 3 (2007)

Remember when Bryce Dallas Howard had to die her hair blond to become Gwen Stacy? Yeah, if that’s the weirdest thing about this movie, then you clearly forgot about Peter Parker’s emo-Spider-Man dance. Like the other two Spideys in this sequence, you’ll need to rent this one on Amazon Prime. 

The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014)

Yep, just like all the Tobey movies, the Andrew Garfield Spider-Man films are also pretty much only available for rent. You can watch both of these on Amazon Prime, iTunes, or YouTube.  (Though again, with Amazon, you might need a Starz subscription.)

THE NEXT BIG MARVEL MOVIE STREAMING: Black Widow

You may have heard that Black Widow — a movie about Black Widow that happens before the events of Infinity War — is skipping theaters and going straight to Disney+. This is true. On July 9, Black Widow will hit theaters but will also be on Disney+ for $29.99 as part of their “premium access.” 

Okay, so what about the rest of “regular” MCU movies? Here’s how you can stream all of the Marvel Studios movies that are online right now.

Thor: The Dark World

This extremely unpopular sequel (and arguably the low point in the entire MCU) can be rented ($2.99 or $3.99 for HD version) or purchased ($12.99 or $16.99 for HD version) on Amazon or YouTube. Thor: The Dark World is also on Disney+, and really, only cool now that there’s a flashback to it in Endgame.

Watch it here on Disney+.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Widely considered one of the best superhero movies ever made, you can watch The Winter Soldier by renting ($2.99 or $3.99 for HD version) or purchasing ($12.99 or $16.99 for HD version) it on Amazon or YouTube. You can also watch it on TNT with a cable subscription.  Captain America: The Winter Soldier is also on Disney+.

Avengers: Age of Ultron

If you’re eager to rewatch James Spader voice a malevolent, self-aware artificial intelligence program come to life, you can always try renting ($2.99 or $3.99 for HD version) or purchasing ($12.99 or $16.99 for HD version) Age of Ultron on Amazon or YouTube. Ultron also has no strings and is totally on Disney+.

Watch it here on Disney+.

The original Ant-Man can be rented ($2.99 or $3.99 for HD version) or purchased ($12.99 or $16.99 for HD version) on Amazon or YouTube. Ant-Man (which is maybe a prequel to Honey, I Shrunk the Kids) is also on Disney+.

Watch it here on Disney+.

Captain America: Civil War

The Iron Man vs. Cap showdown sadly just left Netflix but it can still be rented ($2.99 or $3.99 for HD version) or purchased ($12.99 or $16.99 for HD version) on YouTube or Amazon.

The second tale of Peter Quill and his merry group of space scoundrels is available on Netflix, along with being available to rent and purchase on Amazon or YouTube. It’s also on Disney+.

Watch it here on Disney+.

Spider-Man: Homecoming

The precursor to the new Spidey film is arguably this one!  It’s Tom Holland’s first standalone movie as Spider-Man after he first popped-up in Civil War. It’s available to stream on Starz app if it’s available via your cable provider. This also means you could watch it on Hulu if you have Starz. Otherwise, it can be rented Amazon or YouTube. 

To be clear, Spidey might never show up on Disney+. In theory, he’s on loan from Sony, which means he isn’t really someone Disney can grab. But, there are a bunch of Spider-Man cartoons on Disney+!

Thor: Ragnarok

The funniest movie in the MCU canon is totally on Disney+. It’s got all your friends from work in it.

Watch it here on Disney+.

Black Panther

If you’re looking to head back to Wakanda, you can rewatch Black Panther by streaming it for free on Netflix! (It’s also for rent on Amazon.)

Right now Black Panther is not on Disney+. It will be in March of 2020.

Avengers: Infinity War

The most essential movie to rewatch before Endgame is obviously its first chapter, Infinity War. Luckily the snappy epic (see what we did there?) is streaming for free on Netflix. It’s not on Disney+ yet, but it will be on in June of 2020.

Ant-Man and the Wasp

The comedic follow-up to Infinity War will oddly be essential to understanding why Ant-Man is in Endgame at all. Luckily, this one is also on Netflix.  

It’s not on Disney+ yet but will be in July 2020.

Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel is the newest MCU movie that you can stream! It’s available to rent on Amazon Prime for $4.99 and YouTube for the same price.  It’s also on Disney+!

Watch it on Disney+ here.

Avengers: Endgame

Right now, you have to rent Avengers: Endgame on Amazon for $5.99. But it’s also on Disney+, loving you 3000.

Watch it on Disney+ here.

Spider-Man: Far From Home

After a huge legal battle that almost kicked Spidey out of the MCU forever, the web crawler is still part of the Avengers. For now. Right now, you have to rent Spider-Man: Far From Home on Amazon for $5.99. And, because of the legal trouble between Sony and Disney, don’t expect this one on Disney+ any time soon.
