The Unofficial MCU Timeline, Part 18 – BLACK PANTHER

We’ve got another easy one this week. When Black Panther came out just over a year ago, it created huge waves throughout the genre of superhero movies and the broader pop culture. If the Academy Award for Best Picture was awarded simply in terms of cultural legacy, Black Panther unquestionably deserved the trophy that Green Book regrettably took … Continue reading The Unofficial MCU Timeline, Part 18 – BLACK PANTHER

The Unofficial MCU Timeline, Part 16 – SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING

This is it. Spider-Man: Homecoming. The movie that supposedly broke the timeline of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The movie whose depiction of events has been famously called “incorrect” by some of Marvel’s most prominent filmmakers. The movie that – in a roundabout way – inspired me to do this whole dumb series in the first place. … Continue reading The Unofficial MCU Timeline, Part 16 – SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING

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 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
