I am forced to watch these Marvel Movies in the following order (I have seen every other movie already, only those remain):

  1. Captain Marvel
  2. Avengers: Infinity War
  3. Ant-Man & the Wasp
  4. Avengers: Endgame

Reasons are limited remaining airing time of Captain Marvel at my local theatre and difficulties with overlapping freetime of the people I would like to watch these films together with.

So my question is: Can I safely watch Captain Marvel without it spoiling Infinity War for me? (Answers please without spoilers!)

I know Captain Marvel came out after Infinity War, but that it plays some time in the past. But I am afraid of timeskips and other bare spoilery things with regards to Infinity War.

You can watch the movie safely, but I suggest you go to the bathroom and/or take a snack when it comes to the credits, which, without going into details, spoil a major (but known) event of Infinity War, and a lesser known (but more of a spoiler) event.

Hover at your own risk; the thing is that Infinity War...

served to tease the appearance of Captain Marvel into the MCU, in its post-credits scene. Thus, the scene consists of her being called by someone about to die.

And Captain Marvel's mid-credits scene...

has her arriving on Earth, asking what happened to the character who called her.

That's the mid-credits scene, however; the post-credits scene of Captain Marvel is a funny one which doesn't spoil anything. Actually, it even answers a question you might ask yourself during the movie, if you've seen the first Avengers movie.

  • Or just leave the theater when the credits start to roll. The post-credits scene is not really worth waiting for.

  • @Moyli to each their own, but personally I enjoy staying comfortably in the theater seat, listening to the ending credits music, still being in the movie's ambiance, before I go back to the real world ;) (plus, hey, I paid for the ticket, better make the most out of it :P )

The bulk of the movie does not contain any spoilers for Infinity War that I can think of. However, the during-credits stinger scene does. The post-credits scene does not.


You should be all set.

Captain Marvel, set in the 1990s does not intersect with Infinity War, set in 2018, or Ant-Man and the Wasp, also set in 2018. However, because you are watching this one out of order, stop at the start of the credits, because they contain stingers that won't make sense.

After Ant-Man and the Wasp and Infinity War,

  • you can watch the stingers for Captain Marvel.
  • you can watch the trailers for Endgame (and also the HISHE Endgame trailer parody; link is referential- don't watch it now.)

Your sequence will actually help you better understand a stinger in Infinity War.

The important thing is that you see all of them before Endgame, which you are.
