The Entire MCU Timeline Explained

  • The massive scope of the MCU has allowed Marvel Studios to create a sprawling, interconnected universe built on a shared continuity, and much like the comics the movies are based on, that means things can get pretty complicated.

    The Marvel Cinematic Universe doesn't start with Tony Stark getting kidnapped in 2008, Carol Danvers being taken to Hala in the '90s, or even with Steve Rogers volunteering for the Super Soldier program in the '40s. Instead, like most universes, this one starts at the Big Bang.

    Going chronologically, the first event we see in the MCU is the creation of the Infinity Stones. As the Collector explains in Guardians of the Galaxy, they were formed from the "six singularities" that caused the universe to explode into existence, before being scattered across the universe.

    That, of course, was billions of years ago, but "millions of years" before we get to the present-day MCU, Ego the Living Planet comes into existence and starts seeding worlds with his essence in an attempt to create another Celestial being like himself.

    Some mistakes:
    -It was Justin Hammer and IVAN Vanko that teamed up to try and create another Iron Man suit, not Anton Vanko, who was Ivan’s dead father
    -They used the Mind Stone for Vision, not the Soul Stone
    -Scott Lang’s daughter is Cassie not Hope

    The story is so amazing to me although I’ve already watched all the movies at least three times, and it just still surprises me when this video introduces a new aspect of the MCU after talking about the last one because it gets more and more exciting. Like when they’re talking about the avengers and stuff and then bring in completely new characters with GOTG, then with ant man, then with doctor strange etc

    You forgot to mention the deal with Black Panthers brother help Klaw stealing the vibranium from Wakanda in 1990, then Ultron stole/bought the vibranium from him 2015.
    Plus the Hulk whereabouts on earth before leaving. He messed up New York and was on the run.
    What about the General Ross who's been in this, and becoming secretary of state.
    and the list goes on. lol
