2. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D departed from the MCU timeline in the middle of Season 5. The writers were unaware of the plot details of the upcoming Avengers films (Infinity War and Endgame), so they weren’t able to entirely keep the timeline intact. However, many speculate that since Season 5 includes time travel (spoiler alert), the remainder of the series occurs in a parallel timeline.

3. Black Widow is a Marvel Phase Four film, but its setting is said to be placed in the timeline between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War. Details beyond this are unknown, so it is believed to fall on the timeline before Thor: Ragnarok, which is a direct prequel to Avengers: Infinity War. The release date for this film is May 7, 2021.

4. Thor: Ragnarok, is listed in numerous sources as being before Ant Man and Wasp in the MCU timeline. The primary reason for this is post-credit scene when Scott Lang is sent into the Quantum Realm and the three Pyms vanish into ash. However, the end of Thor: Ragnarok leads directly to the beginning of Avengers: Infinity War, making it the more logical choice to precede it. The scene with the Pyms vanishing serves as more of a teaser scene or preview for Avengers: Endgame rather than determining the film’s placement in the MCU timeline. Placing Thor: Ragnarok directly prior to Avengers: Infinity War provides a much smoother transition when viewing the films back-to-back.

5. Loki, the upcoming miniseries on Disney+ occurs on an alternate timeline, but it is one of the timelines from Avengers: Endgame. During Endgame, while Tony Stark and Scott Lang are trying to get the Tesseract from 2012, it falls to the floor and Loki picks it up and teleports to somewhere unknown (since the Tesseract held the Space Stone). The upcoming Loki series follows that Loki, not the one who died at the beginning of Avengers: Infinity War. Its debut date is scheduled for June 11, 2021.

6. Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness hasĀ a direct tie-in to WandaVision; Wanda’s newly-discovered revelation about herself and her powers is supposed to play a significant part in the plot of the newest Dr. Strange movie, set for release on March 25, 2022.

7. Spider-Man: No Way Home is rumored to pick up where Spider-Man: Far From Home left off; at the end of the film, a video is leaked to the media by Quentin Beck (Mysterio) revealing Spider-Man’s true identity, Peter Parker. Its release date is set for December 17, 2021.

8. Morbius is rumored to take place after Spider-Man: Far From Home, based on a preview image which has the word “MURDERER” spray-painted over a picture of Spider-Man. It will also feature the return of Michael Keaton’s “Vulture,” last seen in Spider-Man: Homecoming. The Morbius release date is currently scheduled for January 21, 2022.

9. Eternals is slated for release on November 5, 2021, but very little is known about the plot. The information that is available indicates its setting in a post-Endgame world and will feature all-new characters to the MCU.
