Marvel Studios planning an official timeline to the MCU

Marvel fans were left scratching their heads this summer when Spider-Man Homecoming revealed itself to be taking place eight years after the Battle of NY. "We do want the focus to be on Infinity War for now". But the timeline is nowhere close to being put on the right path, and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige still doesn't have a clear answer of how to fix it.

It wasn't meant to flummox anybody exactly, and I'm not sure I'd do it again the same way, but it does all connect to where we placed it.

I think some of that has been blown out of proportion.


This seems to contradict the already stark number of contradictions in Marvel's timeline. Easily one of the most anticipated films of 2018, the ensemble tentpole will serve as Marvel Studios' 10-year anniversary offering for all their fans who have relentlessly followed their film-by-film narrative arc. This is the time period when Homecoming takes place, but it doesn't square with the presumption that Avengers took place in the year of its release, 2012.

Given the scope of the film, everyone is obviously very hyped-up for the trailer, especially for those who can not wait to see their favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe characters all meet-up together.

"I've loved timelines, I love the Star Wars timeline, with the Battle of Yavin, everything is either 'After the Battle of Yavin, ' [or] 'Before the Battle of Yavin.' We're doing that, and the origin point for us is Tony saying, 'I am Iron Man.'"So everything will be years after that, years before that-to the Big Bang, which is where it starts". In a few words, not very well. Is title still spoiler-ish?


Avengers 4 is the latest Marvel film to go into production, but the title remains under wraps, leading to speculation regarding whether it may be a spoiler for Avengers: Infinity War.

This is a major teaser coming from the head of Marvel indicating that the superheroine was out there in space during the time that Avengers were being formed on Earth and even before Iron Man came into existence.
