A guide to Marvel on Netflix

Been tempted to watch the Marvel TV shows on Netflix but have no idea what the order of the shows is or what each show is about? Terrified about starting at the end and spoiling everything for yourself? Well, this week I’m here to quell your worries with a look at Marvel on Netflix through my comprehensive order to each show and a brief overview of each season!

Pre Watching

Before watching the Marvel Netflix mini-verse you should try to make sure you’re at least up to the end of Phase one of the Marvel films (Avengers Assemble) because all of these shows reference the Marvel films often enough that a base knowledge of the surrounding events of New York is important. But not so important that you need it so don’t worry if you haven’t. We’re all inclusive down here.
