There have been more than 20+ films that are magically relatable and now some of the characters are even getting their own shows on Disney+.

But what if we rank them as per their importance to the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
With that being said, these Disney+ shows are ranked as per their importance to the MCU –
Theoretically, it doesn’t look like a series like What If…? could matter at all. Well, it was the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s very first animated series that highlighted some alternate versions of the Marvel characters. However, the events of Phase 4 are what made the series relevant in regards to the concept of the multiverse. While the MCU fans might not see characters like Party Thor in the real cinema, characters like an Evil Doctor Strange have been already teased in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
The Falcon And The Winter Soldier
The entire motto of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was to establish and set up a new Captain America for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was Sam Wilson who successfully completed the show after officially taking over the Captain America horizon on screen. Moreover, the show remains relevant to the MCU because it brought and introduced some of the potential characters to the audience – for example; Isaiah Bradley and John Walker.
Hawkeye is already receiving some heart whelming reviews from the critics and the audience. While the story might not have a bigger impact or relation with the primary Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline, the plot will somehow change the perception of the audience regarding street-level crime while moving forward. After all, Hawkeye has done some really huge things. In the end, it also included characters like Yelena Belova from Black Widow and Kingpin from Daredevil.
While Wanda Maximoff wasn’t really a good start in the MCU films, WandaVision helped fix the character significantly. With that being said, it was Elizabeth Olsen who did a spectacular job while playing Wanda on-screen and depicting the grief she possess after losing her brother and Vision. Moreover, establishing this character like Scarlet Witch was a massive point because that is how it’s going to sound relevant when she’ll appear in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
When the superheroes started messing with the sacred timeline in Avengers: Endgame, everything changed. The viewers saw Loki escaping with the Tesseract and breaching the timeline. This scene continues in Marvel’s Loki. When Loki breaches the timeline, he gets arrested by the Time Variance Authority. In some way or the other, Loki managed to introduce the concept of Multiverses significantly. Moreover, the season finale brought Kang the Conqueror on screen. Last but not least, when Sylvie killed He Who Remains, the event helped open the doors for things such as Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Spider-Man: No Way Home.
