Marvel is going to be putting out the official Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline – with a slight catch. The official MCU timeline is not being detailed on the screen but rather in a new book, entitled, The Marvel Cinematic Universe An Official Timeline, which is being released by Penguin Random House books, and authors Anthony Breznican, Amy Ratcliffe and Rebecca Theodore-Vachon. The book will serve as “the definitive, filmmaker-endorsed guide” to the MCU timeline, with tantalizing new details for fans to discover.
Questions about how the MCU timeline works are only getting more important as the franchise marches on. The end of the Infinity Saga broke open the door on (a complicated version of) time travel; meanwhile, the next volume of the franchise, “The Multiverse Saga”, is trying to tell a story that extends across alternate timelines with their own histories, plus a larger history of the entire Marvel multiverse, which we already know will be crucial to the culminating events of Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars.
That’s all to say: the authors of The Marvel Cinematic Universe An Official Timeline are getting this book out just in the nick of time, before this whole situation gets a lot more complicated.
