Thor: Ragnarok will be the 17th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After that many movies it’s understandable that the timeline of the franchise can get a little confusing.
In Spider-Man: Homecoming Peter tells the story of how he joined Team Iron Man during Captain America: Civil War, then he goes on to stop a plane from being hijacked on its way to the new Avengers headquarters. Basically everything is all backwards.
These issues caused fans to ask a lot of questions about the MCU timeline. Now, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has told ScreenRant that the studio will publish a full timeline someday.
“All of that debate has encouraged us. We are going to be publishing…I’m not sure when, or in what format, an official timeline. It’ll probably be a part of…an in print that you can fold out and look at,” he said. “But suffice to say, only in limited cases do we ever actually say what the actual years are because we never want to be tied down to a particular year and I think people assume that whenever the movie is released is when is when the movie is taking place, and that is not the case.”
Next up in the MCU is Thor: Ragnarok, which swings into theaters Nov. 3.
