The Unofficial MCU Timeline, Part 14 – DOCTOR STRANGE

Last week’s entry saw the biggest disruption in the timeline to date, so it’s nice to ease back into things with one that’s pretty straight forward. The timeline of Doctor Strange is pretty straight forward, but it’s also unusual in its own unique way. It’s not immediately obvious, but the story of this film spans a … Continue reading The Unofficial MCU Timeline, Part 14 – DOCTOR STRANGE

The Unofficial MCU Timeline, Part 13 – CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

The Avengers is the lynchpin movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s weird, messed up timeline. depending on which detail from which movie you want to prioritize at any given moment, the film can take place in either 2009 or 2012. But it’s not just that one movie that shifts back and forth through time. By … Continue reading The Unofficial MCU Timeline, Part 13 – CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR

THE CLONE WARS Season One and the End of the Expanded Universe

Because I’m viewing the series in chronological order, for the purposes of this article, Season One is defined as the episodes on this list beginning with “Cat and Mouse” and ending with “Liberty on Ryloth.” Before I began this series in earnest, I wrote a handful of articles on the no-longer-canon Star Wars television productions … Continue reading THE CLONE WARS Season One and the End of the Expanded Universe

The Unofficial MCU Timeline, Part 11 – AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

The original Avengers was the flashpoint for all of the timeline woes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe up until this point – releasing in 2012 and potentially taking place in either 2009 or 2012 depending on which way you’re counting. By comparison, the rest of Phase Two has been pretty easy. No real conflicting timelines in any … Continue reading The Unofficial MCU Timeline, Part 11 – AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON

The Unofficial MCU Timeline, Part 10 – GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

We’re halfway there. Well, sort of. We’re halfway through the Marvel movies that have thus far been released, but there’s also Captain Marvel and, of course, Avengers: Endgame on the horizon. I’m still not quite sure how I’m going to handle those since I won’t be able to use screenshots the way I have up until now, … Continue reading The Unofficial MCU Timeline, Part 10 – GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY

The Unofficial MCU Timeline, Part 9 – CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER

Back in 2014, I got to attend a Q&A at USC with Joe and Anthony Russo, directors of the then-newly released Captain America: The Winter Soldier. During the Q&A, a question came up about the lack of a visible date on Nick Fury’s head stone at the end of the film (believe it or not, I … Continue reading The Unofficial MCU Timeline, Part 9 – CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER

The Unofficial MCU Timeline, Part 8 – THOR: THE DARK WORLD

We’re beginning to establish a pattern here. After one movie completely derails the timeline we’ve established, we get a nice, easy Thor movie with almost no concrete references to dates. These first two Thor movies are definite low points in terms of quality, but in this one, specific, dumb category, they are a delight. This one’s gonna … Continue reading The Unofficial MCU Timeline, Part 8 – THOR: THE DARK WORLD
