The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is one of the very few long-term attempts to successfully create a continuity between multiple movies, shows and genres under a single franchise. While the “experiment” has got audiences deeply invested in the ongoing storyline, it can be difficult to keep track of all those connections, especially since many films and shows feature flashbacks and references outside of the linear narrative. Plus, there are also a few story inconsistences here and there.
With the abundance of Marvel films released lately and planned for the next few years, the MCU is only getting bigger and much more confusing for those who aren’t die-hard fans. To help viewers who wish to dive into the Marvel world, let’s take a brief look at the MCU chronology.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe Timeline illustrates connected MCU movies and series displayed in the recommended viewing order, so as to make the most sense of the intertwined narratives and the overall storyline. For better clarity and simplicity, the graphic does not include short films or other granular Marvel properties, keeping mostly to major releases, including movies that will premiere in the next couple of years. Since the franchise has plenty other films and series planned, it is likely that the timeline will change in the future.
The Marvel chronology was created with the help of Office Timeline, an add-in for PowerPoint that allows users to quickly build timelines and Gantt charts for business or academic communications. The tool is available in two versions, Free and Plus. While the free edition is fully functional and great for creating and editing simple visuals fast, the paid version comes with powerful extra features, such as the ability to import data from Excel, update it instantly, and customize graphics down to the smallest detail.
