Marvel's Kevin Feige on That Spider-Man: Homecoming/Avengers Timeline Issue

Marvel's Kevin Feige on That Spider-Man: Homecoming/Avengers Timeline Issue

Remember when Spider-Man: Homecoming came out this summer and a few people (Polygon included) pointed out that the film broke the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) timeline? However, he did admit that the release date and format in which the timeline will launch is unclear-similar to the phrasing he used about not knowing where or when a possible Marvel Con would take place. How is this all working out timeline wise? Just before The Avengers was released in 2012, Marvel issued a photo correcting a popular thought thread that suggested Iron Man, Captain America: The First Avenger, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2 and The Avengers all took place in the same year.

Kevin Feige: All of that debate has encouraged us.

This isn't the first time that Marvel is going to release an official timeline, either. It'll probably be apart of ah, I don't know, apart of an in print that you can fold out and look at.

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Marvel's Avengers: Infinity War - the next Avengers film - stars Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland and Anthony Mackie. But the notion we are sitting here talking and we have, what, six films yet to be released?

Avengers: Infinity War premieres May 4, 2018, while Avengers 4 hits cinemas the year after on May 3, 2019.

It is, in any case, the goal clearly admitted d'Avengers: Infinity War and its sequel, for now without title official, as to collect all this lovely world in a big adventure to reset the counters to zero. "And we are focusing on bringing, by that point, an unprecedented, 22-movie, continuous shared fictional narrative to a conclusion in a satisfying way". The less connected they are to each other, the more wiggle room the movies have for creative freedom and to stand alone however, but since the MCU has thrived (in part) due to that continuity, it can't go back on it now.
