Kevin Feige says there’s an official MCU Timeline being worked on to pull the universe together

October 12th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Sooooo… remember the whole ‘eight years later’ thing at the start of Spider-man: Homecoming that confused a lot of fans because there wasn’t an eight year gap between it and Avengers: Age of Ultron?

Welllllll… it seems that Marvel are aware of the fans’ confusion and are working on a way to fix it.

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has promised that they are working on a Marvel Timeline to go with the movies.

How long have the Avengers been together? How long between Winter Soldier and Civil War? How long has Hulk/Banner been gone before appearing in Thor: Ragnarok? Well all these thing swill be answered.

They just aren’t sure how.

“All of that debate has encouraged us,” says Feige about the fans’ debating exactly when things are taking place in the MCU, “We are going to be publishing an official, and I’m not sure when, or in what format, an official timeline. It’ll probably be apart of ah, I don’t know, apart of an in print that you can fold out and look at.

“But suffice to say, only in limited cases do we ever actually say what the actual years are because we never want to be tied down to a particular year and I think people assume that whenever the movie is released is when is when the movie is taking place, and that is not the case.”

Fact of the matter is that many people don’t worry too much about when things happen but rather just watch each instalment as a standalone event without worrying too much about when, where and how it ties into what went before and what lies ahead… but, let’s be honest, if you’re on this site then chances are, like us, this stuff DOES matter to you, so this would be a welcome addition to any MCU collection.

What say you all? Let us know…

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
