Finally, an official timeline for the Marvel Cinematic Universe is here

Learn about the new book that’s putting the Marvel timeline on paper, allowing fans to explore the stories in chronological order.

If you’ve ever watched a Marvel movie, you might have noticed Easter eggs or characters from different films making unexpected cameos.

From Ant-Man to Thor, there is a huge range of Marvel movies, and with over thirty films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), it’s easy to see how the timeline can get murky for viewers. Even the biggest fans struggle to list the Marvel movies in order, thanks to overlapping timelines and characters.

Thankfully, the days of guessing are over – an official MCU timeline is here! Marvel Studios The Marvel Cinematic Universe An Official Timeline takes every movie, every show, every reference and officially lays them out in full order for the first time.

This book will tell you everything you need to know about the complex and interconnected MCU – from how different storylines overlap to how your favourite characters’ lives intersect, and all the multiversal madness in between!

For casual fans and die-hard devotees alike, this is the definitive, filmmaker-endorsed guide to the lore, timelines, and characters of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Learn more about the book in this trailer featuring Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, Brad Winderbaum, production and development executive and authors Anthony Breznican and Rebecca Theodore-Vachon.
