Marvel to release MCU timeline after Spider-Man: Homecoming confusionBy Robin-Leigh Chetty 13 October 2017 | Categories: News
Spider-Man: Homecoming was well received following its release earlier this year. It wasn't short of criticism, however, with several people pointing out some inconsistencies in terms of the timeline laid out in the film.
With the webslinger now a significant part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) moving forward, a bit more clarity is needed on when and how exactly Homecoming fits into things.
This has prompted Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige to dispel any confusion about the current MCU timeline, confirming to Cinemablend that an official timeline will be revealed by the company. In his chat with Cinemablend, Feige pointed out that release dates for movies, with the exception of Guardians of the Galaxy, do not always correlate with when they take place in the MCU.
While Feige did not detail the dates for all films, he did state that Captain America: The first Avenger (the modern day portions) is meant to take place in 2011 MCU time. Thor: Ragnarok, Marvel's next big film, is set two years after the events of Age of Ultron, but whether it takes place in 2017, remains to be seen.
That said, it will certainly not affect whether we watch it though.
