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.

    This didn’t mentioned the begging of the inhumans and the real beginning of hydra as mentioned in agents of shield season 3. Can’t say it’s the whole MCU timeline if that wasn’t mentioned

    Here's the thing: Falcon is the best choice as the new Cap because his viewpoint is the same, Except that he never drank the super koolaid. He won't get super strength and speed and shield throwing skills from a suit.
