You've probably seen most of Marvel's films, but what about the TV shows?can be more than a bit confusing. And now, as we approach the culmination of more than a decade of movies and Phase 3 of the newly-announced Infinity Saga, things may become even more confusing.
After more than a decade of movies, TV shows, short films, and post-credits, there's a lot to do at the MCU.
Editor's note, March 28, 2019: It's finally happening, we've redesigned the entire timeline. Please finish in the comments on how tall or terrible she is! And if you want to stream. Do you think you have found a mistake? Let us know in the comments!
To help you fill in the gaps before Endgame, just to watch the shows or just to impress your friends, we have created a schedule for Marvel President Kevin Feige has now created The Infinity Saga in the perfect Ordered order. Or maybe you just care about wherefits (Note: It's not the place you think!)
The Marvel Cinematic Universe like the whole Franchise is also called Includes related features like movie comics or shorts. For the graphics we have omitted smaller features and have kept to the two major films and shows, but below are even more goodies to see.
OK, now, before you start raving about some of the more similar, recent films, keep in mind two big, big things:
MCU Postcredit Scenes Do not Matter
Seriously, The Mid and Postcredits scenes are nothing more than funny inserts or an in-Canon nod for avid fans. Even Marvel himself has literally rewritten older scenes with new films. Suppose figs and other heads of Marvel Studios have been thinking about the next 10, 20 or even 30 years of MCU movies is a bit presumptuous from the beginning and ignoring the fun of some directors have said they had with these scenes.
It is good to believe that these films should only be seen or experienced in one way. I think that this is the best way to see the franchise, yes. Can I someday introduce friends and family with this CNET method? NA SAFE. But that does not mean that it is right for you.
My colleague Sean Keane has graciouslyfor you (but if that would help, maybe we could also develop a timeline.) Of which to see and when). I can not say enough to first time visitors: ignore all postcredit scenes (just look at the funny scenes your friends tell you). If you watch in this order, do not look at the scenes of otherwise you will be very confused.
And as for your next big question …
Captain Marvel is not in chronological order.
No, listen to me!
Captain Marvel is the first true lineage history (like in, she was not seen before in a Marvel movie) since the Doctor of 2016 Strange, but the film also gives the fans a new look at agents Nick Fury and Phil Coulson and the Tesseract. If you were to follow a chronological order for your MCU movies for the first time, you would see so many questions right after Captain America's first concert visit.
In the film, verse takes years to discover her true identity, and by waiting to see her story in the context and nuance of 18 earlier films, you're giving yourself something good. It's more fun to indulge in the fun of the numerous jokes "A-ha!" To sunbathe. Moments and Fury backstory that you probably would not have cared about 17 movies ago.
In this order, Captain Marvel is the treat you received before the Infinity War Prequel. Regardless of the order in which you experience these films, you should save yourself a few hours and definitely yet note that The Incredible Hulk actually still and even William Hurt ("Thunderbolt" Ross himself admitted "Hurt said in 2015 to IGN that" [Ross in Civil War] is different because it's a different style … And what they did is they have a character taken the Ross from the older movie and made a new version, this is a much newer Ross, a very different Ross. "Having seen both, we can confirm that this is indeed the case.
You'll also find that shorts and the Marvel One shots are missing from the graphics, these short videos were originally created as stand-alone stories to provide background information on characters or items featured in the films, two of which became later to v worthy shows.
|Title, Release Date||Taking place …|
|The Consultant (Sept. 2011)||At the end of Iron Man 2|
|On the way to Thor's Hammer, a funny thing happened (Oct. 2011)||Directly in front of Thor|
|Item 47 (Sept. 2012)||Immediately after the Battle of New York in Avengers|
|Agent Carter (Aug. 2013)||One year after Captain America: The First Avenger; in front of Agent Carter|
|All greet the King (Feb. 2014)||About two years after Iron Man 3; before agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.|
More continuity in the MCU
If you have both movies and TV shows, there is definitely something strange about continuity.
Season 1 ofsaw the release of two Marvel films and had to fight with the involvement 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 that same season, episode 16 was aired on the same weekend as the release of Captain America: Winter Solider, and the events appearing on S.H.I.E.L.D. take place almost simultaneously with the movie. (Some people say Episode 16 comes before Winter Soldier, and you can certainly treat it as such. The * absolute * best way to see them would be but I have not seen anyone else do this Fan edited.)
and also have wibbly 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 big screens, this could happen 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.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is higher than you might have expected; This is due to the number of years that the film says is over, ie it takes place only a few months after the first film.
Some say that Doctor Strange should come before Winter Soldier because of a badger scene. A rabbit hole an IGN editor has already been completed and unmasked. It remains as strange as it is. (But with time manipulation now, who really 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 the story of Agent Carter, is a great way to start as an MCU raid. There is the case that he is the most important avenger, and whether you agree with it or not, it's worth jumping first with him.
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 version was released much later on the Thor DVD to simply complete the story. I'll say 100% that if something moves, it's the time you'll be paying close attention – maybe Iron Man 2, and that will help. Yes, I will make that change on the one-shot list, that should help.
Beyond the Infinity Saga
Years ago,Variety is very important to Marvel: "Look at each of our films and they were very different," he said. "We feel that we can only do justice to the books by fully presenting them."
Following the appearances of Black Panther andat the box office, all bets are set on the future of the MCU. Their broke all the rules of superhero history – and here we hope Marvel will continue to do so.
Forward-looking after Endgame, the only film that we know he will be sure of is thethis summer. However, we have quite a mess of according to Deadline, THR and more. In-production and alleged upcoming films for MCU's next phase / saga include:
Marvel on Netflix and
. Netflix Marvel still shows outside the theater. ABC tried to get back in the game with Inhumans, but bad reviews mean that the second season's whisper is missing. SIGN. After Endgame has a new season on premiere, but still no teaser or word about how she will handle it … many deaths (spoilers).
New Marvel shows have now appeared quite consistently, but only a few are within the MCU canon. The second season of Cloak & Dagger starts on Freeform in May.theoretically still hovering around somewhere? In November 2017, THR found that it had been sold to networks, but it is not yet known where it will end (maybe Disney +?).
Recently we learned that Marvel's Runaways will return to Hulu for a third season, but that does not apply to the Marvel-Netflix properties. Despite the critical recognition of some shows, all Netflix originals were canceled.
Will they ever return? Never say never, but the chances seem to be low. Instead, hope for a new reincarnation of the characters at the upcoming Disney + Streaming Service.
The growth of the Marvel Universe is extraordinary (har-har) and the comic giant is launching new fans with new characters (some people had no idea who Doctor Strange was a few years ago) and partners in cable TV and Netflix To expand even further, we saw some pretty epic pairings, teams and characters coming out of the woodwork.
What characters would you like to see in Marvel's yet unannounced but certainly inevitable next stages on the big screen? Let us know in the comments.
