X-MEN Timeline Explained! Dark Phoenix Update! (2000 - 2019 Full Chronology)

  • Published on Jun 12, 2019
  • Dark Phoenix concludes this version of the X-Men film series, but how does it bring the X-Men timeline full circle with X-Men (2000), X-Men First Class (2011), X-Men Days of Future Past (2014), Logan (2017), and Deadpool (2016)? Where does Dark Phoenix fit in the X-Men chronology along with X-Men Apocalypse (2016) and X-Men The Last Stand (2006)? Erik Voss breaks down the full X-Men timeline, for the movies released 2000 - 2019, set from years spanning from 1845 through 2029. Which X-Men movies were "erased" from the timeline with Days of Future Past, and how does Deadpool, Legion (FX), and New Mutants fit in the timeline? Why was Dark Phoenix delayed so many times, reshot, and dumped by the studio? Where are all the plot holes and continuity errors in the X-Men chronology? What X-Men film should have ended the Fox Marvel series?

    Ok.. I was little confused before i watched this.. The way I see it is everything from x-men first class is a reboot so obviously it's going to negate the 1.2 and last stand..also i got the correct timeline out of it after a little digging..if we don't think of first class as a reboot..

  • Alexander Ace Estillore

    Yeah hey? Done watching dark phoenix. Didn't you notice that jean grey is alive in xmen days of the future past by the time logan woke up in the future. This really gives me nuts. They killed jean in the past and alive in the future? I get it why they killed jean grey cause of the sacrifice between the dark phoenix which is also a story line in the comics. By why does jean grey alive inthe future and killed in the past 🤦‍♂️

    X1 and X2 gave that chill high school vibe... and I wasn't even in high school at the time. Nostalgic scenes.

    Yes, timelines has been a true mess in this franchise. Difficult as a fan/moviegoer to attach to any of the characters. The MCU is how you do it!

    All of this is the result of Endgame. Not to mention, Endgame has potentionally sent the MCU on the same path as the X franchise with all of its plotholes.

      With great powers comes great responsibility Even with the time travel? Cap going back; Thanos not existing in one timeline; absence of stones, but an universe that still exists; Tony's death which could have been prevented with the time stone as Thanos did it with Vision or better go back in time and bring another Tony back to the present timeline. It's all a mess if you think about it.

  • Michael Randol
    Michael Randol 16 days ago

    It didn’t change all the origin movie but enough lol but chronologically the x3 movie and dark Phoenix took place in a separate universe so I don’t know why it matters that it was 8 years from that point.

  • Tyler McGee

    Days of future past erased X-men 1-3. So the aging from dark Phoenix to X-men 2000 doesn’t happen because the original trilogy “never happen”. The big problem is how they stay the same age from first class

  • irsyad harfiansyah
    irsyad harfiansyah 17 days ago

    I believe MCU will start including xmen bit by bit on 2021, and a movie on phase 5, in 2023. A story about how humans dont like mutant.
    DoFP also takes place in 2023, so that makes sense.

    5:35 he says Rogue while showing a picture of Jean Grey

  • BFG Skittles
    BFG Skittles 17 days ago

    If the events of the last stand got erased in DOFP, wouldn't that mean everything before it going back to 1973 would be erased too?
    It would make sense because that would leave the only non-erased film to be first class?
    So you really have two timelines...
    Timeline 1: First Class > (DOFP timeline 1 (Trask killed)) > Origins > X1 > X2 > X3 > Wolverine > DOFP
    Timeline 2: First class > (DOFP timeline 2 (Trask not killed)) > Apocalypse > Dark Phoenix > Logan

    So basically there is two timelines,
    First class, Origins, X men, X2, last stand, Wolverine, and part of future past
    First class, future past, parts of origins, apocalypse, dark Phoenix, Wolverine, Deadpool’s, and Logan
