This is when Avengers: Infinity War is set in the MCU timeline
Thanks to the relation between the Guardians of the Galaxy movies and a huge error in Spider-Man: Homecoming, Marvel’s timeline has gone from seemingly straightforward to decidedly confusing in recent years.
Thus, the question of where Avengers: Infinity War fits in Marvel’s chronology wasn’t necessarily going to be as simple as we once might have expected.
Well, Joe and Anthony Russo’s epic is finally here, and it reveals the movie’s relation to the rest of the MCU.
(Warning: Contains minor spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War.)
Speaking to Steve Rogers’s rogue Avengers, War Machine (Don Cheadle) reveals that they have been on the run for two years.
That makes it two years since Captain America: Civil War, which was released two years ago. See – this timeline stuff doesn’t have to be so complicated, Marvel.
In that time, we know that Cap, Black Widow and Falcon have been on the run, fighting crime from the shadows. Black Panther has presumably been offering them some aid, while his sister Shuri worked on removing The Winter Soldier’s mental programming.
As for the Guardians of the Galaxy, their second movie – which was released in 2017 – was actually set only a little while after the first film, which came out in 2014. So when they arrive in Infinity War it’s been some years since we last saw them battling Ego and the Sovereign.
And Thor: Ragnarok‘s mid-credits scene leads directly into the opening of Infinity War.
Bish bash bosh. Bob’s your uncle.
Avengers: Infinity War is out now in the UK and will be released on April 27 in the US. Book tickets now.
