Marvel timeline: The MCU movies and TV shows in chronological order

Sacred Timeline

The Marvel timeline is a complicated beast, made even more confusing by multiversal goings on and the fact that MCU projects don’t release in chronological order (and are packed with crossovers). Then there’s just how many movies and TV shows there are – keeping track of everything is enough to make your head spin, and that’s without considering whether something is canon or not. 

But that’s where we come in. We’ve sorted the entire MCU into one ultimate timeline, with every single Marvel film or TV show in chronological order. We kick things off way back in the 1930s, and go all the way up to 2025, where you’ll find Moon Knight and Doctor Strange 2. We’ve even factored in Agents of SHIELD, What If…?, the Defenders Saga, and the non-MCU Spider-Man movies, too. So, scroll on to get up to speed with the entire Marvel timeline.

Note: A * means multiverse or timeline shenanigans, which might not be part of the main timeline.

Marvel Timeline

Loki, meanwhile, takes place outside of our conception of time. The primary Loki Variant of the show is technically snatched from 2012. But theorists hold that Kang the Conqueror witnesses the timeline being broken – therefore unleashing the multiverse – just as Wanda looks into the Darkhold during the WandaVision finale. Loki really is a confusing one – but if you’re tackling the MCU, this is probably the place it makes sense to watch, otherwise you’ll be waiting years for more multiverse shenanigans.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings likely takes place in 2023. It definitely comes after Avengers: Endgame, and Bruce Banner’s cameo shows that he hasn’t recovered from his universe-fixing snap just yet, plus everyone’s still talking about The Blip. That places the movie at a few weeks or months out from Endgame, but with no fixed date.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier takes place six months after Endgame, which, depending on which month the events Endgame happens in, means the Captain America spinoff is set sometime in late 2023 or early 2024. Meanwhile, Spider-Man: Far From Home is set eight months after Endgame with Peter Parker mourning the loss of Tony Stark. That places it at just around the 2024 summer holidays, hence the European vacation.

Eternals takes place after Avengers: Endgame, and most likely just after Spider-Man: Far From Home. With the movie seeing a giant Celestial pop out of the ocean, it would be hard for that not to have an effect on the MCU going forward.

Hawkeye, we were told by the series’ director, takes place two years after Endgame. With its Christmas setting, however, that places the series just under the two year mark – at Christmas 2024. 

Spider-Man: No Way Home picks up directly after Far From Home, which means the action takes place in 2024. The film leads us up to Christmas of that year, so the same time as Hawkeye. Moon Knight then takes place after Hawkeye, presumably in 2025. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness follows No Way Home, which finishes in Christmas 2024, so we can assume that takes place in 2025 as well. 

As for Agents of Shield, which is maddeningly obtuse in its divergence of the Marvel timeline, they pretty much gave up on any semblance of being in the same universe as the MCU movies. Season 7 goes on a mad trip through time, heading back into the 40s, 50s, and 60s. The team then pop back into 2018, and it appears the finale ends in 2019, one year after the events of the sixth season (a time they’re eventually able to return to). This all happens, seemingly, on a different timeline, one where Thanos never fully invaded Earth. Some fans have reasoned that this could mean the non-Disney Plus TV shows happen on a completely different Marvel timeline to the movies – which is probably the easiest way of looking at it.

What about the Spider-Man movies?

Thanks to Spider-Man: No Way Home, the Spider-Man universe of movies are connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s films do not, however, take place on the same Marvel timeline as the main MCU. They are stories told across the multiverse, and therefore do not fit into the core MCU timeline. If you do want a working order to watch those films, then check out our guide to how to watch the Spider-Man movies in order.

What about What If…?

What If...?

What If…? is difficult to pin down, mainly because, like the non-Tom Holland Spider-Man movies, it’s set in the multiverse, and each episode takes a different Marvel movie as its jumping-off point. It gets its own section of the timeline for that reason, and the first season has ranged from an alternate version of Captain America: The First Avenger up to the Avengers: Infinity War era.
