Avengers: Endgame arrives in theaters on Friday, April 26, just over a week away. For those who want to catch up on the 21 films that came before it, but don't want to have to shell out hundreds of dollars for the Phase I and Phase II boxsets, streaming is always an option. But where? Here's how to stream Avengers: Infinity War, plus all the other Marvel Cinematic Universe films ahead of the final movie in Phase III.
Endgame's arrival will mark the end of Phase III, but it also comes at a really awkward time for parent company Disney. As you may have heard, the company has announced Disney+, it's own streaming service, which will debut on Nov. 12. In preparation for launch, the company has been pulling their movies off of competing services left and right, to have them ready to go on its own platform when the time comes. This means, right now, the majority of MCU films aren't on streaming services. Out of 21 films, only five are on Netflix, only one is on Hulu, and one is streaming via cable channel Starz.
For everything else, it's streaming rental for $2.99. Let's run down the options.
'The Incredible Hulk'
'Captain America: The First Avenger'
'Marvel's The Avengers'
'Iron Man 3'
'Thor: The Dark World'
'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'
'Guardians of the Galaxy'
'Avengers: Age of Ultron'
'Captain America: Civil War'
'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2'
Spider-Man: Homecoming was a Sony film which makes it entirely different. It's only streaming on Starz.
'Avengers: Infinity War'
'Ant-Man & The Wasp'
Still in theaters only, sorry.
