The Marvel Cinematic Universe is one of the most elaborate movie universes. Marvel has completed its 10 years. With each movie releasing, the MCU is getting more and more interrelated and weaved in. Thus, extreme care is taken to avoid any errors in the timeline. The biggest continuity error the MCU has suffered so far is with Spiderman: Homecoming. It is the movie it is established that the events of the movie take place 8 years after The Avengers.
After this, Kevin Feige assured the fans that they will come up with an official timeline of the whole if the MCU. In Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years, this official timeline has been released. Explicitly explained is the start of the universe itself and leading up to Thanos’ Snappening in Infinity War. Although Marvel did not include the timeline of Antman and The Wasp in this, it doesn’t take a genius to understand that it takes just some time before Infinity War. The MCU timeline is as follows –
Captain America: The First Avenger – 1943 to 1945
Ironman – 2010
Ironman 2 and The Incredible Hulk and Thor – 2011
The Avengers and Ironman 3 – 2012
Thor: The Dark World – 2013
Captain America: The Winter Soldier, GOTG, GOTG Vol. 2 – 2014
Avengers: Age of Ultron and Antman – 2015
Captain America: Civil War and Spiderman: Homecoming – 2016
Doctor Strange – 2016 to 2017
Black Panther, Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Infinity War – 2017
This timeline seems pretty good. But there are still some problems. Infinity War is supposed to happen two years after Civil War, yet according to this timeline, there’s only a one year gap. Another one is that Black Panther takes place one week after Civil War, yet here you can see a gap of one year. Maybe Marvel will come out to explains how they derived this takes and acknowledge the problems that arise after this. Avengers 4 has been confirmed by some reliable sources to be taking place 5 years after Infinity War.
