What order should the X-Men franchise (including Deadpool 1 & 2, Logan and the Wolverine) be watched in? Different sites give me different answers (due to the time travel in Days of Future Past).
The chronological order goes like this:
- X-Men: First Class [established by Days of Future Past to be a prequel to the original timeline]
- X-Men Origins: Wolverine [explains how Wolverine got into the situation he's in in X-Men]
- X2: X-Men United
- X-Men: The Last Stand
- The Wolverine
- X-Men: Days of Future Past [here, the timeline is reset]
- X-Men: Apocalypse
- Dark Phoenix
- Deadpool 2 [be aware that some of the marketing spoils the ending of Logan]
Note that some of the films (particularly X-Men Origins and The Wolverine) feature flashbacks to events that happened prior to the events of First Class, while others directly contradict one another.
