Now, one fan has set forth, figuring out when each one of those movies took place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And in their own words, “This took me much longer then I thought it would..” Due to the searching and cross-checking with the official – and yet lacking – information, Marvel gives out, it seems to be a much harder job to map out a timeline of the Marvel movies than you think.
It all started in 2008 when Rober Downey Jr. donned version 1 of the Ironman suit in a film that made around $318.4 million in the United States. Fast forward to last year when the final film in the Infinity Saga premiered, Avengers: Endgame, making Disney over $853 million in profit. Overall Disney has made $22 billion over the 12 years it has been pushing out these behemoths of the movie industry and has made a special place in every fan’s heart.
In the past, Marvel has come out with their own MCU timeline, but it’s barebones at best. Only going from Captain America: The First Avenger with Chris Evans, to the Infinity Wars movies.
Reddit user Donvito00 laid out every movie up to now in this handy dandy timeline, so if you ever have a disagreement with a friend about when Black Panther took place, you can bust out your pretty accurate timeline and fell all the better for it.
The highly popular superhero franchise has finished it’s phase 3 coming to a close on the Infinity Saga and will soon begin phase 4, starting with Black Widow. The long-overdue origin story of super-spy Black Widow, highlighting her past and training. Set to release in May 2020, this is one movie that fans have been waiting to see for a while. Black Widow has always been an elusive character in the MCU, and one that the writers haven’t discussed until now.
The MCU isn’t slowing down anytime soon, and this timeline will be made even more complicated with the addition of small-screen projects from Disney+. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is set to release at some point in 2020 and will bring the high production to everyone’s living room. It also has WandaVision that follows an earlier storyline of Wanda Maximoff and Vision. The Synopsis for that film says, “While living their ideal suburban life, Wanda Maximoff and Vision begin to suspect things are not as they seem.”
And finally is Loki. No trailer has been released for this series, but it follows Loki, brother of Thor. “After the events of Avengers: Endgame (2019), Loki uses the Tesseract to travel through time and alter human history.”
