For those people out there who want to be surprised and see iron man’s story unfold gradually over time without having any spoilers given away – this post will be your guide on what order you should watch all of these iron man movies in to create an epic journey through time.
Since Iron Man was released in 2008, Marvel has been on a roll.

With that said, if you’re looking to watch all of these movies but don’t know where to start, this article will guide you through the journey!
Iron Man (2008)
Iconic billionaire playboy philanthropist, genius inventor, and weapons contractor Howard Stark’s son, Tony Stark. When Lt. Col. James Rhodes, the leader of an Iraqi army unit, is given a weapons presentation by Tony Stark, he takes him to his enemy’s territory in Iraq. Tony is attacked by the terrorist group known as A.I.M., which results in what he thought was his death. After rebuilding himself, better than ever with iron-plated armor and an iron heart, Tony takes on a new identity to fight against evil forces who would want to hurt him or see the world destroyed through its misuse of weapons. In Iraq, he uses a rudimentary device to flee from the cave. He resumes working on perfecting the Iron Man suit once he’s back in America. However, a man named Justin Hammer has some evil plans for using Stark Industries’ technology for other purposes.
The first Iron Man movie is the best place to start your journey. It introduces us to iron man and his origins over time. The second Iron Man movie picks up where Iron Man left off, but there are a few times when you might see some spoilers for this one if you watch it right after the first Iron Man movie.

The Incredible Hulk (2008)
Scientist Bruce Banner journeys the world after surviving a deadly gamma radiation accident in order to find a cure for his inner rage, which transforms him into the Hulk. Despite the fact that he is nearby, Banners must be careful since General Ross and his troops are looking for him and he wants to use his condition to get power. Banner approaches Betty Ross, his former lover, for help; he is running out of time and options. Meanwhile, a new hazard emerges when a power-crazed soldier transforms himself into the Abomination, a terrifying being who looks much like Banner.
Tony makes a brief appearance in the film’s closing minutes, but he has a bigger presence in the post-credits sequence, where he chats with General Thaddeus Ross (William Hurt) and sows more seeds for the future Avengers installments.
Edward Norton, Liv Tyler, Tim Roth, William Hurt are among the cast members.
Iron Man 2 (2010)
Now that Tony Stark has revealed himself to the world as Iron Man, the entire globe is begging for his cutting-edge technology – whether it’s from the US government, weapons manufacturers, or others. In addition to that, a new threat arises from an old friend named Ivan Vanko who has come back to exact revenge on the Stark family. Tony Stark’s life is spiraling out of control as he now struggles with his own personal demons and flirts dangerously close with the idea of being Iron Man – which leads him into confrontation against iron man.
Following a catastrophe that destroys the whole world, rival weapons manufacturer Justin Hammer believes Ivan is the key to surpassing Stark Enterprises after an assault on the Monaco 500. But before government authorities arrive and deprive him of his finest clothes, Tony must figure out how to save himself, reclaim Vanko, and capture Hammer. Can he do it?

The Avengers (2012)
The super-soldier Captain America and the enigmatic Tesseract device have both been recovered by S.H.I.E.L.D. The Tesseract is a doorway to an unknown world known as Asgard, which has recently been discovered by the United States of America’s scientific agency S.H.I.E.L.D. Loki, a strange being from another world, arrives on Earth and thinks he can rule the world. However, S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury takes issue with this attitude. The Tesseract has been taken away by the Asgardian, and Loki’s capture is seen as an act of war against Earth. A desperate Loki uses the Tesseract to open a wormhole above New York City, opening up an army of Chitauri warriors who descend upon the unsuspecting people on Earth’s surface in order to destroy and dominate them.
The only way to stop this is to put together an actual superhero team. Dr. Bruce Banner, who transforms into the Hulk, a huge green monster. Tony Stark with his legendary Iron Man suit. Captain America, the military leader created by Stark Industries. Thor, the god of thunder, the protector of Earth, and Asgard’s king brother Loki. Hawkeye, a master archer, and marksman. Black Widow, the Russian spy with no allegiances to anyone but herself. And lastly, Nick Fury is responsible for assembling this team of misfits together in order to save humanity from Loki and his army of aliens.
The cast includes Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, and others.
