You've probably seen most of Marvel's films, but what about the TV shows?
If you're like me, ie a continuity junkie, timelines are very important to you – but timelines in the world of comics and movies can be more than a little confusing.
Editor's note, November 19, 2018: This week, Marvel has unveiled its own "official" timeline for MCU films. It's interesting, but mostly we believe it proves what we started almost 5 years ago. (Remember, we're also shown in the TV shows why ours is a beast.)
We've created a newsletter that contains everything related to Marvel, for which you can log in at can !
As we come closer to " Captain Marvel " and " Avengers 4 ", we will update the timeline again in 2019, so stay tuned. And if you want to stream some MCU movies, we can help . Do you think you have found a mistake? Let us know in the comments!
In addition, one should definitely note that "The Incredible Hulk" is still skippable ( we even looked at it again to confirm only ) and even William Hurt ( "Thunderbolt") Ross himself admitted it. Regarding IGN, Hurt said that "[Ross in ‘Civil War’] is different because it's a different style … And what they did is they took a character who was the Ross from the older movie and a new version This is a much newer Ross, a much different Ross. "Having seen both, we can confirm that this is indeed the case.
In addition, shorts and the Marvel One Shots are missing in the graphics. These are short videos that were originally created as stand-alone stories to provide background information on characters or things that can be seen in the movies. two of them later became full-fledged shows.
Title, Release Date
taking place …
The Consultant (Sept. 2011)
At the end of "Iron Man 2"
A funny thing happened on the way to Thor's Hammer (Oct. 2011)
Right 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" before "Agent Carter"
Everyone welcomes the King (Feb. 2014)
About two years after "Iron Man 3" before "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."
Continuity in the MCU
There is definitely some continuity when you have both movies and TV shows, and the items listed in the graphic are no exception.
Season 1 of " Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. " saw the release of two Marvel films and had to fight the involvement of these plots. 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 aired on the same weekend as the release of "Captain America: Winter Solider," and the events 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 treat it like that.) The * absolute * best way to see them would be but you have not seen anyone yet making this fan edit.)
Netflix "Daredevil" and " Jessica Jones " 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 show with Marvel 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 – that's because of the number of years that the movie has considered as having passed, that is, it's only a few months after the first movie.
Finally, many commentators believe that "Doctor Strange" should come before "Winter Soldier" and cite the scene with Jasper Sitwell on the roof calling Stephen Strange. But to be honest, this has a better explanation, because "the algorithm was right for Strange" and not "he was already a magician". In fact, an IGN editor has a pretty good breakdown of why this is exactly the case.
It could probably go both ways, but all signs indicate that "Strange" takes place afterwards. (But with time manipulation now, who really knows?)

A frequent timeline question is why "Captain America" comes first; In detail, the questions often revolve around how you do not know who Nick Fury is or what S.H.I.E.L.D. is, and that's just my opinion. 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 appear before "Incredible Hulk" because "The Consultant" is short. This short was released much later on the "Thor" DVD to easily complete the story. I'll say 100% that if anything moves, it's the time you're so careful, put Iron Man 2 on it instead and that will help. Yes, I will make that change the one shot list that should help.
You may find that I've moved up Ant-Man & the Wasp "" via "Infinity War," though neither has come out yet. That's just a trick that the trailers and teasers judge so far, but if it turns out this is not the case, I'll postpone it this summer.
And although it was reported that " Captain Marvel " will take place in the 1990s, I have not moved it – with the cast additions . I'll wait and see if it's really going to be a full-fledged flashback or if it's used the past like "Wonder Woman," which is a plotter to tell a story. I'll probably not evaluate this change until next year when the movie comes out (but who knows what the time will bring).

How did Black Panther get its accent?
Black Panther, Infinite Wars and Phase 4 Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige Told Me Diversity is very important to Marvel: "Look at one of our films and they were very different," he said , "We feel that we can only do justice to the books by fully depicting them."
After "Black Panther" all bets stand for the future of the MCU. His record-breaking record-breaking story broke all the rules of superhero history – here Marvel continues to hope
. Check out our CNET Magazine feature on Boseman this accent and the power that is Black Panther.
Prepare for "Tears with Avengers: Infinity War ". We're pretty sure * someone * is going to die, and while nobody is sure, the bets tend to be Iron Man or Captain America.
Directors Joe and Anthony Russo say there will be some unexpected characters in Infinity War, and basically it's a raiding movie starring Thanos.
With "Infinity War," Thanos is the film's biggest new element, and the fact that he enters the storytelling very boldly and heavily, so that he is almost one of the main characters. We've created an interesting narrative around him that, in a sense, relies heavily on a raiding film, following the infinitely large stones in a much bolder and more successful way than in the past. The entire movie has the energy that evil is one step ahead of the hero. We looked at many films that had this energy, [and] which gave inspiration.
For more information on Avengers 3 & 4 from the Directed Duo see Erin Carson's Interview with the Brothers.
"Ant-Man & the Wasp," starring Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lily, is scheduled for this July, making it the first film to give a woman the title statement. And let's not forget that Brie Larson will be playing "Captain Marvel" (2012) in 2019. But we still hope that we will see them in "Infinity War ".
Marvel at Netflix and Other TV Shows
Netflix's Marvel shows are still outside the cinemas. However, ABC tried to get back in the game with "Inhumans" in the fall, but poor ratings mean that a second season whisper no longer exists. The fifth season of "S.H.I.E.L.D." has (literally) brought our heroes into the future, but not yet a word about its renewal. However, the season finale will be titled "The End," which sounds even more threatening in the absence of Season 6 news.
New Marvel shows are now fairly consistent, but only a few are in the MCU canon. In June, "Cloak & Dagger" will be premiering on ABC's upcoming Adult Channel Freeform Premiere. " Marvel's New Warrior " was originally intended for the same network this year, but last November THR was known to have been sold to other networks. There is currently no broadcast date, so I removed it from the timeline.
Also launched " Marvel's Runaways " in Hulu. It focused on a group of teens who came together to defeat their evil parents enough to get a Season 2 extension.
As far as the Netflix Marvel features are concerned, these series were usually better than the ABC projects. Speaking to CNET Magazine, Mike Colter mentioned that the humanity of Luke Cage and The Defenders is a large part of what he believes is resonant with humans.
"Much of what distinguishes the Netflix style from Marvel Cinematic Universe is the ability to stay away from superheroes of" quote, unquote, "mysticism, and alien intrusion, so I feel like It has its own audience Our characters, you know, we are going through some of the same territories as humans [in real life] … We are doing something else – not better, but just different – you can have both. "
Here are these Netflix Landing Now Available:
"Jessica Jones": Renewed only for Season 3, every favorite whiskey drink will return … one day. (Interesting fact: It was the first Marvel Television estate to win an Emmy.) [Daredevil]: Season 3 was announced but no Airdate has yet been announced (but I would expect that it will drop this year). Well, that and a few cryptic tweets that make people believe filming had begun.
" Luke Cage ": Season 2 was announced, but it still is not likely to appear until after seasons 2 and 3 of "Jones" and "Daredevil" respectively. This means that we will see him alone at the earliest in the second half of the year 2018. But we've seen some new characters (villains, to be exact).
" Iron Fist ": Season 2 was announced, much to the chagrin of those who contended through season one (not me, if I'm honest), but it still is.
" The Punisher ": Season 1 is now on Netflix and the second season of has just been announced . Jon Bernthal plays along and comes to collect.
" The Defenders ": Season 1 was aired last summer. No second season has been announced.
The growth of the Marvel Universe is extraordinary (har-har), and as the cartoon giant introduces new fans to new characters (some people had no idea who was Doctor Strange a few years ago)) and partner of Cable TV and Netflix, to expand even further, saw some pretty epic pairings, teams and characters.
So be honest. Which characters would you like to see in Marvel's yet unannounced but certainly inevitable next stages on the big and small screen?
