With Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 on its way some of you may have been thinking about having a proper movie Marvel Movie Marathon. However, did you know there is an actual order/timeline to these films? Although they may have been released out of order there is an actual method to watching the films and I am here to tell you the order they fall in.

Captain America: The First Avenger

Although it was the last to be released before the first Avengers, the place it holds in the timeline is in the films title itself.

Steve Rogers, a rejected military soldier transforms into Captain America after taking a dose of a "Super-Soldier serum". But being Captain America comes at a price as he attempts to take down a war monger and a terrorist organization.

Iron Man

After being held captive in an Afghan cave, billionaire engineer Tony Stark creates a unique weaponized suit of armor to fight evil.

Iron Man 2

With the world now aware of his identity as Iron Man, Tony Stark must contend with both his declining health and a vengeful mad man with ties to his father's legacy.

The Incredible Hulk

Thor

The Avengers

Earth's mightiest heroes must come together and learn to fight as a team if they are to stop the mischievous Loki and his alien army from enslaving humanity.

Guardians of the Galaxy

This one doesn't really have a specific time on where it takes place in the MCU but if you want a break from The Avengers this should definitely be your next watch in your marathon.

A group of intergalactic criminals are forced to work together to stop a fanatical warrior from taking control of the universe.

Thor: The Dark World

When Dr. Jane Foster gets cursed with a powerful entity known as the Aether, Thor is heralded of the cosmic event known as the Convergence and the genocidal Dark Elves.

When Tony Stark and Bruce Banner try to jump-start a dormant peacekeeping program called Ultron, things go horribly wrong and it's up to Earth's Mightiest Heroes to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plans.

Ant-Man

6 Songs To Add To Your Car Playlists

Warning: these songs may set your stereo on fire.

11
views

There are certain songs that fill your speakers and force you to nod your head. And while we're in the summer and looking to get out of the house more, it might just be in your best interest to look for more of those certain songs to spice up your drives. Fear not, because I got six tracks that you're gonna want to peep as soon as possible. Safe driving.

Kid Again by Max Wonders

In this softspoken nostalgia trip, Max Wonders manages to conjure up that feeling of uncertainty as one grows into shoes that may be overwhelming. It's a nice, poignant track about the worries of leaving childhood behind, and it's a fantastically mixed bassy bop in the process. The raw emotion pairs surprisingly well with the deep end, creating a whole that's emotion-inducing and motion-inducing all the same

JSTCUM by RNDYSVGE and Olukara

RNDYSVGE blends delicate vocals with one of the nastiest, ungodliest, funkiest basslines ever, creating a confusing whirlwind of wonky grooves and unbelievable soul, which induces nothing less than the stankest of stankfaces. When Olukara comes in, it's the smooooooooooothest cherry on top. The overall product is a bombastic, calm, lively, and smooth self-contradiction that's hard not to snap along to.

Only Human by Innanet James

I'm a huge fan of Innanet James for his ability to make the most danceable music while infusing it with his own sardonic brand of political/social commentary. In this track, he plays verbal hopscotch over a beautiful chord progression and a brilliantly unfolding instrumental, all while touching on Islamophobia, his proud racial identity, Donald Trump, before coming to the conclusion that we're all ultimately human and should love each other regardless of differences. It sounds like a trite lyrical structure, but the execution is immaculate.

All This Money by Injury Reserve

OH OH OH OH OH OH OH MY GOD. Ritchie With a T's shouty delivery might be off-putting to some, but the rest of the track's composition makes it pretty easy to get onboard. With a Lil' Jon style hook and effervescent attitude, this track makes it clear that the Arizona group Injury Reserve has energy enough for at least seven other rap groups. Side note: this is a fantastic workout song.

Bubblin' by Anderson .Paak

.Paak is probably more known for his soulful R&B jams, but this track really works as a change of pace for him. Built around a moody orchestral sample, this track is bouncy in the best way. It flows uniformly while also creating a self-referential bubbly energy, which makes it easily one of the most fun songs of 2018 so far.

No Data by Daye Jack

The intro track to his underrated 2017 album of the same name, "No Data" is a poppy, shimmering showstopper that lyrically introduces a concept that Daye tackles throughout the project. Otherwise, it's a marvelous blend of genres, including but not limited to rap, 80s pop, and (somehow) new jack swing. It's a great, enjoyable number that sets the tone for a great album. Moreover, it's a song that simultaneously lives in the moment and relishes in the details. It's intricate while also effortlessly moving from second to second in breathless fashion. Definitely worth checking out.
