An Epic Marvel Rewatch with the Collectress

As a graduate student in the ABD phase (‘all but dissertation’), I spend much of my day at home, perched in front of my laptop, trying to outline a novel. (Breaking news: writer’s block sucks). A few weeks ago, procrastination struck, and I wondered how long it would take to watch all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

The answer: 68.26 hours, or, 2.84 days.

Next, I wondered what the exact chronological viewing order would be of the MCU. I pulled up Marvel’s website, started looking at the timelines, and, well, below is a chart. If I watch approximately three hours of the MCU per day, I will finish with season 2 of Agents of SHIELD in approximately 24 days, which will give me just enough time to pack my suitcases and head to California for SDCC.

Now I wonder if my viewing experience of the MCU will change when I watch in chronological order, and I intend to live tweet my watching using the hashtag #EpicMarvelRewatch. The chart that follows is the chronological order, grouped together with how I intend to view the episodes. If you dare to follow along, come tweet with me, and we’ll have a grand time.
