If you have watched the first two Avengers movies and then tried watching the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series, you may be wondering why there are some parts in certain episodes having references to the Avengers. Well that is because both Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and the Avengers shared the same timeline in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, yep for the newcomers, both the Marvel movies and TV series share the same world, with some exceptions from the X-Men and Fantastic Four movies as well as the previous Spider-Man films, since these movies were handled by different groups with the approval from Marvel.
Now that you finally know that the recent Marvel films and series all connected with each other, it?s time to watch every single of them in the correct order if you want to go hardcore or just wanting to fully understand the buildup of the entire universe and how each characters interact with the events happened in other films.
