You've probably seen mostmovies, but what about the TV shows? can be more than confusing. And now, as we approach the culmination of more than a decade of movies and Phase 3 of the newly named Infinity Saga, things may become even more confusing.
After more than a decade of movies, TV shows, short films and trailer scenes, there is a lot to do in the MCU. Editor's note, 2019: We are now in. Review sister site GameSpot's and more, and scroll down to learn more about the status of the MCU. So far, March 2019: Finally the time has come, we have redesigned the entire timeline. * Please continue to listen in the comments on how awesome or awesome it is! And if you want to stream some MCU movies . Do you think you have found a mistake? Let us know in the comments.
To help you fill in the gaps before endgame, just watch all the shows for fun or even just try to impress your friends, we've created a timeline that Marvel President Kevin Feige now calls The Infinity Saga in the perfect display order. Or maybe it just interests you wherefits in (hint: it's not where you think!).
The Marvel Cinematic Universe as the entire franchise is also called sometimes includes associated features such as movie comics or short films. For the graphics, we've skipped smaller features and stuck to the big two of movies and shows, but there are more goodies down below.
It is amazing to think that these films should be seen or experienced in one way or another. I think that's the best way to see the franchise, yes. Will I one day introduce friends and family with this CNET method? NA SAFE. That does not mean that it is right for you.
My colleague Sean Keane has ranked all MCU postcredit scenesfor you (but if it helps, we may also develop a timeline of them to see and when). I can not say enough for first time viewers: ignore all postcredit scenes (just look at the funny ones your friends tell you). Especially when watching in this order, do not pay attention to the since they are otherwise very confused.
And as for your next big question …
Captain Marvel does not belong in chronological order
No, listen to me!
Captain Marvel is the first true genesis (as in, she was not seen in any Marvel movie before) sincebut the film also gives fans a fresh look at agent Nick Fury and Phil Coulson and the Tesseract. If you follow a chronological order for your first rendition of these MCU films, you will have so many questions right after Captain America's first appearance.
In the film, verse takes years to discover her true identity And by waiting to see her story with the context and nuance of 18 previous films, you're giving yourself a treat. It is more fun to bask in the fun of many in-jokes: "A-ha!" Moments and Fury backstory you probably did not care about 17 movies ago.
In this order, Captain Marvel is the treat you get before the Infinity War Prequel, which is. 19659008] Despite the order in which you watch these films, you should save yourself a few hours and definitely still note that The Incredible Hulk is in fact still skippable and even William Hurt ("). Thunderbolt," admitted Ross himself. In 2015, Hurt told IGN: "[Ross in Civil War] is different because it's a different style … And what they've done is that they've taken a character who was the Ross from the older movie and a new one This is a lot of new Ross, a much different Ross. "After looking at each other, we can confirm that this is indeed the case.
You'll also find shorts and the Marvel One shots missing in the graph. These short videos were originally created as standalone stories to provide background stories for characters or things seen in the movies. Two of them later became full-fledged shows.
|Title, Release Date||Takes place …|
|The Advisor (Sept. 2011)||At the end of Iron Man 2|
|A funny event on the way to Thor's Hammer (October 2011)||Directly in front of Thor|
|no. 47 (September 2012)||Immediately after the Battle of New York in Avengers|
|Agent Carter (August 2013)||One year after Captain America: The First Avenger; in front of Agent Carter|
|All congratulate the King (Feb. 2014)||About two years after Iron Man 3; before representatives of S.H.I.E.L.D.|
More continuity in the MCU
There is definitely some continuity if you have both movie and TV show features, and those listed in the chart are no exception.
Season 1 ofsaw the release of two Marvel films and had to fight with the inclusion of these acts. Broadcast after the release of Thor: The Dark World, episode 8 of S.H.I.E.L.D. definitely takes place right after these events.
Later this season, episode 16 aired on the same weekend as the release of Captain America: Winter Soldier and, in a neat piece of continuity, the events that appear on S.H.I.E.L.D. take place almost at the same time as the movie. (Some people say Episode 16 comes before Winter Soldier, and you can certainly treat it as such. The * absolutely * best way to see them at the same time would be but I have not seen anyone else edited this fan.)
and also have wobbly timelines. At the beginning of the series, the Battle of New York is referred to as The Incident, and it is said that it took place about two years earlier. However, due to the lack of interaction of the series with Marvel characters on large screens, it could take place almost anywhere on the timeline between Thor: A Dark World and Avengers: Age of Ultron. In our timeline we have it at the same time as the second season of S.H.I.E.L.D. to stay closer to the time when it was actually published.
is higher than you might have expected – that's because of the number of years that the movie has been called passed, which means it's only months after the first one Movie takes place.
Some say that Doctor Strange should come before Winter Soldier because of a particular roofing scene. A rabbit hole an IGN editor has already been finished and unmasked. So it remains strange where it is. (But with time manipulation, who knows?)
A common timeline question is why Captain America: TFA comes first. This is all just my opinion, but I think seeing Steve Rogers grow up first, followed by Agent Carter's story, is a great way to start an MCU raid. It is arguable that he is the most important avenger, and whether you agree with it or not, it's worth talking to first.
As for the second most common question: No, Iron Man 2 should not come before Incredible Hulk because of the short, The Consultant. This short film was released much later on the Thor DVD to simply replenish the storyline. I'll say 100 percent that if something moves, it's the time you look so short – maybe put it in Iron Man 2 instead, and that will help. Yes, I will make that change in the one-shot list that should help.
Beyond the Infinity saga
Years agoVariety is very big important to Marvel: "They watch one of our movies and they were very different" , he said. "We feel we are living up to the books by fully representing them."
After the appearances of Black Panther andat the box office, all bets on the future of the MCU are lifted. Their origin stories have broken all the rules of superhero history – and we hope Marvel will continue to do so.
If we look at Endgame, the only movie that we know he is sure to come this summer is. However, we have a whole series of according to Deadline, THR and more. Production and rumored upcoming movies for the next phase / saga of the MCU include:
Marvel on Netflix and the Disney Plus Future
Netflix & Marvel shows are still out there. ABC tried to get back in the game with Inhumans, but bad reviews mean that, fortunately, a second season's whisper does not exist. SIGN. After Endgame, there is a new season ahead of the premiere, but there is no clue as to how it deals with … many deaths (spoilers).
New Marvel shows appear quite consistently, but only a few within the MCU canon. The second season of Cloak and Dagger begins on Freeform in May, whiletheoretically still fly around somewhere? In November 2017, THR revealed that the program was sent to networks, but not yet a word about where it will end up (perhaps ?).
We have recentlyon Hulu will return for a third season, but the same is not true for the Marvel-Netflix properties. Despite critical recognition of some shows, all Netflix originals .
Will they ever return? Never say never, but the chances seem small. Instead, hope for a new reincarnation of the characters in the upcoming.
The growth of the Marvel Universe is extraordinary (har-har) and the comic giant is making new fans with new characters (some people had no idea who Doctor Strange was a few years ago) and partners with cable television and Netflix To expand even further, we've seen some pretty epic pairings, teams and signs coming out of the woodwork.
What characters would you like to see in Marvel's yet unannounced but surely inevitable next stages on both the small and the big screen? Let us know in the comments.
