Marvel Will Release Official MCU Timeline To Solve Continuity Issues

Spider-Man: Homecoming has fans scratching their heads over a wrinkle in the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline, and studio president Kevin Feige said Marvel Studios plans to officially clarify it. In Marvel and Sony's first joint-venture bringing the third version of Spider-Man to the big screen, many wondered what potential problems could arise as two studios try to work together for the greater good of the character.

Captain Marvel will be added into the world of MCU by 2019. Feige admits that they were taken aback by the confusion and obsession over the timeline, so much so that they are planning on releasing an official timeline in the near future which will make things clear. But this wreaks havoc in the ages of the characters, especially Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland), who was 15 as of "Captain America: Civil War" which was released in 2016.

All of that debate has made us go, "Okay, at some point, I'm not sure exactly when, we're going to publish a timeline and see what it all is.' It wasn't meant to flummox anybody exactly, and I'm not sure I'd do it again the same way, but it does all connect to where we placed it". I don't know ... a part of an in-print that you can fold out and look at. "And I think there's a presumption, 'Well if the movie came out in November 2017, it must take place in November 2017" - which is not the case.

Marvel's Cinematic Universe has, by and large, been well known for its meticulous timeline.

One opening scene in Homecoming takes place immediately following the Battle of NY, the climactic ending of The Avengers.

The end of this year happens to see the release of Disney's highly anticipated Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie, so it seems a no-brainer that Disney and Marvel will be attaching The Avengers: Infinity War trailer to the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but it should be noted there is no confirmation that is happening as of yet. "Are they ever going to be able to resolve that?"
