The Entire MCU Timeline Explained

  • Published on Jun 8, 2019
  • 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.
    Watch the video to see the entire MCU timeline explained!

    You know whats weird? Odin lost one of his eye during the final battle of the Frost Giant war but on Thor Ragnarok when Hela took out Thor's Eye she said "ugh now you remind me of dad" I mean what? Odin vanished Hela long before the war, well of course Hela did saw the Ceiling with Odin with an eye patch but after she destroys it it shows Hela with mjonir and Odin with an eye patch.
