Marvel Studios releases official timeline for the Marvel Cinematic Universe

We’re now ten years and twenty films into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and for the most part Marvel Studios has done an excellent job of keeping its interconnected universe free of the kind of continuity errors that has plagued 20th Century Fox’s X-Men franchise.

That being said, a few issues have popped up over the years, and in order to clear up any potential confusion, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige had promised last year that they would be publishing an official Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline, which has now been released via the Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years book [read our review here].

So, if you’re planning a marathon, chronological order rewatch of the McU, here’s the order to do so:

Stacey Abrams Urges Hollywood Not To Boycott Georgia: “We Will Fight – And We Will Win”

  • Deadline
After an uphill midterm election battle and a tight race that resulted in claims about voter suppression in Georgia, Democrat Stacey Abrams conceded to Republican Brian Kemp (who oversaw the election as Georgia’s secretary of state) in her efforts to become the first black female governor of the state. Despite not winning the post as governor amidst all the controversy, Abrams kept her head up and will continue her efforts to be the leader she is and was meant to be. More than that, she addressed Hollywood’s pushback against the state which has become an epicenter of production for the industry.

“I appreciate the calls to action, but I ask all of our entertainment industry friends to support #FairFightGA – but please do not #boycottgeorgia,” Abrams wrote on Twitter. “The hard-working Georgians who serve on crews & make a living here are not to blame. I promise: We will fight – and we will win.

Evangeline Lilly Was Glad That The Wasp Was Cut From Captain America: Civil War

Back in 2016, Captain America: Civil War was by far the most crowded entry in the McU to date, introducing new players like Spider-Man and Black Panther, while also assembling most of the franchise’s pre-established heroes for an all-star smackdown. In such a busy film, it’s probably for the best that Marvel Studios didn’t follow through on their plans to introduce Hope van Dyne’s Wasp persona, and apparently actress Evangeline Lilly feels much the same.

In the new book Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years, the Ant-Man and the Wasp star reflects on her run thus far in the McU, recalling how she was relieved to find out that her part had been cut from the Russo Brothers’ film.

“There was actually talk of me being in Captain America: Civil War, and I was a little bit worried about that because she would have been introduced in

Chris Evans Reveals What Appeals To Him The Most About Playing Captain America

Though Captain America has proven to be one of the most popular players in the McU, there was always the risk that viewers would fail to connect with such a principled do-gooder, especially back in the early 2010s when audiences were still yearning for dark and moody superheroes of the Christopher Nolan variety. Nonetheless, it seems that this righteous streak remains Steve Rogers’ most appealing quality to the man who’s been playing him for these last eight years.

In the new book Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years, actor Chris Evans is asked what interests him the most about playing Cap, prompting the star to reflect on the character’s early days in 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger.

“Steve Rogers is a man who wants very much to do good and serve his country in World War II,” Evans explains. “but he’s been rejected from the Army

More Evidence Points To November 28th Release For Avengers 4 Trailer

While there’s still some debate to be had over when that all-important first trailer for Avengers 4 is most likely to drop, the overwhelming majority of online speculators are zeroing in on these next couple of weeks as the most likely period, with YouTube channel Everything Always now offering their prediction of Wednesday, November 28th.

This isn’t the only source to suggest such a date in these last couple of days, with some fans predicting that the teaser’s release could coincide with a special Q&A screening of Avengers: Infinity War held on that same day. EA’s reason for this guess, however, has a lot to do with the fact that the first Infinity War trailer was also released on the final Wednesday of November, and given how well that footage did with its traffic figures, it’s easy to imagine Disney would want to replicate that 2017 success.

  • Deadline
Update, writethru: Warner BrosFantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald cast a $191M spell at the international box office this weekend for a global launch of $253M.

Thor: Ragnarok Director Taika Waititi Shares The Perfect Stan Lee Tribute

Over the past week, Marvel lovers of all kinds have been pouring their hearts onto social media following the death of Stan Lee, who passed away at the grand age of 95 on Monday. The comic book icon touched so many of us that millions are heartbroken at his loss. Just when we needed it, though, Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi has shared the perfect tribute to Lee that’s both poignant and also gives us a chuckle.

Waititi shared a behind the scenes snap of himself alongside Chris Hemsworth and Stan The Man on the set of Ragnarok. It was clearly taken during filming of Lee’s cameo in the Thor threequel, in which he turns up as a Sakaaran hairdresser who cuts off the God of Thunder’s luscious locks with his creepy bionic arm. At first, Thor’s horrified by his new do, but he seems to develop

New Avengers 4 Theory Explains How To Bring Back The Dead Without Time Travel

The McU is a delicately arranged franchise where each cinematic entry has a responsibility not to contradict or unintentionally affect the events of their fellow films. And after twenty-plus movies that more or less manage to keep in continuity, time travel could be a real bull in the china shop, what with all the messy complications this plot device is liable to bring.

So while there’s certainly some strong evidence to suggest that the upcoming Avengers 4 will be taking this route, you can see why fans might be searching for other means to resolve the cliffhanger left by Avengers: Infinity War. This new Reddit theory, for instance, suggests that instead of our heroes preventing Thanos’ genocidal snap by journeying into the past, it could be the Mad Titan himself who brings back his own victims using the Soul Stone.

10 McU Projects Confirmed For 2019 (And 10 Possibilities)

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is ever-expanding. It grows bigger and bigger with every release. The main McU films are already twenty movies deep, and there are also the television shows as well. This year has been massive for the McU. Not only did fans get to see the biggest superhero crossover ever in Avengers: Infinity War, but they also got to see new seasons of each of the four Defenders series in Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist, but there’s even more on the way for 2019.

Next year, of course, will play off the wrenching ending of Infinity War with the release of Avengers 4, which still does not have a title. Before that, though, fans will finally see Captain Marvel make it to the big screen, and after that, there will be the exciting new chapter for Marvel’s flagship hero in Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Marvel Fans Think Deadpool Should Take Over Stan Lee’s Cameos

The Stan Lee cameo has been a cherished tradition in Marvel Comics adaptations for many years now, and even in the wake of his passing, the writer still has at least a couple more scenes lined up in future McU installments. But once Lee makes his last onscreen appearance in the Marvel Studios franchise, some fans have suggested a new tradition to take its place – namely, give Deadpool the cameos.

In some ways, this idea makes a fair amount of sense, seeing how the meta-humored Wade Wilson is that rare Marvel hero who can often get away with defying the laws of continuity. What’s more, with the Disney/Fox deal on the horizon, this should soon be manageable from a legal perspective. On the other hand, many fans would no doubt reject the idea of anyone taking Lee’s place, especially a character that he himself didn’t create,

The First Avengers 4 Trailer Could Be Here On November 28th

In an online Q&A held earlier this month, Avengers 4 co-director Joe Russo teased that we “may or may not” be seeing the much anticipated first trailer before the year’s out, but even despite this, the general consensus still seems to be that the teaser will be dropping before the end of this month.

And now, we have even more evidence to believe that’ll be the case. Adding onto everything we’ve already heard, Collider is reporting that Joe and Anthony Russo will be holding a special Q&A screening of Avengers: Infinity War on November 28th. Given that it seems pretty odd to be putting on such an event so long after the film first hit theaters, speculation has kicked into overdrive that there must be an ulterior motive here.

Of course, all signs point to the Avengers 4 trailer being debuted on this day, or the next.

Full Lineup Of Characters For The Eternals Movie Revealed

With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 currently on hold, The Eternals is shaping up to be a key part of our journey further into the cosmic side of the McU. And though few official details on the upcoming fantasy flick have been revealed, a recent report from That Hashtag Show offers much to get excited about.

As you surely know by now, writers Matthew and Ryan Firpo are taking more inspiration from Jack Kirby’s 1976 work on the series than Neil Gaiman’s version, and while the film will dive deep into a very under-explored segment of the McU timeline, there are still going to be some connections made with several pre-established characters.

But what about the new faces we’ll be meeting? Well, we’re glad you asked, as That Hashtag Show’s report outlines the various folks we’ll be getting to know. According to the outlet,

Chris Pratt in Early Talks to Star in ‘The Saint’ Movie Reboot

  • Variety
Paramount Pictures is in early negotiations with Chris Pratt to star in a movie reboot of “The Saint,” two decades after Val Kilmer’s thriller and 50 years after Roger Moore’s TV series.

Pratt’s deal is not closed. He became a worldwide star after headlining Disney-Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” movies and “Avengers: Infinity War” (2018) and its upcoming sequel (2019). He also starred in “Passengers” with Jennifer Lawrence, and long-running NBC sitcom “Parks and Recreation.”

The studio secured a deal for book series rights in 2016 and set up a producing deal with Lorenzo di Bonaventura with the goal of starting an action franchise.

The Saint” is based on Leslie Charteris’ book series, which follow the debonair Simon Templar character first introduced in the 1928 novel “Meet the Tiger,” followed by “Enter the Saint” in 1930. Templar stole from corrupt politicians and warmongers, leaving a calling card of a stick figure with a halo.

Thor Almost Got To Wear His Ultimates Outfit In Avengers: Infinity War

Every new McU movie is an opportunity to give some old heroes a new style, and so this piece of Avengers: Infinity War concept art suggests a dark and dazzling look for Chris Hemsworth’s character that takes inspiration from Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch’s The Ultimates comic series.

The image comes courtesy of Marvel Studios’ Head of Visual Development Ryan Meinerding, who also provided a little context to his Instagram upload:

“Ultimate Thor! This was an early design pitch I proposed before we knew Thor’s hair would be short at the beginning of Infinity War. It’s always a blast to translate something as directly as possible from the comics! The awesome comic design is by the insanely talented Bryan Hitch.”
