Now that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has expanded onto television, the timeline is only set to become that little bit more crammed and a whole lot more convoluted, especially with the Season 1 finale of Loki officially ushering in the multiverse era, where anything and everything can happen literally anywhere across time and space.
As the home for the overwhelming majority of Marvel Studios content, Disney Plus has offered several different versions of the official MCU timeline for fans to dissect, even if it doesn’t boast the entire collection just yet until the Sony deal kicks in and Spider-Man duo Homecoming and No Way Home make their way over.
Some enterprising fans have even offered up a multitude of ways to binge the most commercially successful franchise in the history of cinema, but the Mouse House have added a couple of tweaks now that WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki and Black Widow have been released.
Obviously, Scarlett Johansson’s solo debut has pitched up in between Captain America: Civil War and Avengers: Infinity War, but Loki’s placement is a lot more interesting. While Tom Hiddleston’s series technically takes place between The Avengers and Thor: The Dark World given that it focuses on the 2012 variant who escaped in the aftermath of The Battle of New York, it’s been placed right after Avengers: Endgame and before WandaVision on the timeline.
That adds more weight to the theory that Loki‘s finale took place at exactly the same time Scarlet Witch heard her children crying out from the multiverse, as well as establishing that the TVA took the Asgardian trickster into custody in 2019, not the actual year in MCU chronology he’d initially escaped from.
