Open API: MCU Timeline is now available

The first documentation for the MCU Timeline API can be found at the link below. Currently the API is completely open and available for anyone that wants to check it out! There is currently no demo, since the project is entirely new. There are however a “snapshot” of the content that resides in the database that the API uses, which can be seen at https://snapshot.earth616.org/. The snapshot is just a part of the API, and by using the API there will be much more data to reach.

New updated timeline for the MCU

Yesterday, the work with database migration was completed for the old timeline located here. The work now starts with documenting the API that is ready to get requests. It also has to be published and not only be in a development state. There is however a snapshot open to view already, which has direct access to the database list (outside the API) – where we simply just list the MCU timeline as is. This timeline has also newer entries and information than the manually documented at the prior site.

May isn’t entirely free from Marvel content on DisneyPlus

It sometimes feels like Marvel and Disney chose to take a break in may 2021. There are no new material, you think? However, after a little bit of digging it seems like it’s not entirely empty even if there are nothing bigger that have been announced globally – even if Cruella may be counted as one of the bigger premieres i may.

According to WhatsOnDisneyPlus, at least for the US watchers there are still ongoing legacy releases. Amongst some, “X-Men: The Last Stand” shoud arrive May 14 (next week). One thing that is less publicly known of is the series “Fury Files”. Some sites reports that this series was first released 2017, but by digging a bit deeper it also seems that this eventually is an entirely new production.

We’ve also reported about the M.O.D.O.K. series, that has its premiere in two weeks (May 21), even if that premiere may be limited to Star in US/UK only. In very short words, may 2021 seems to be – mostly – the month of legacy releases. Like Disney and Marvel finally closes their legacy.

MCU Timeline Update: Several titles revealed with release dates

For just an hour ago, Marvel dropped a movie celebration! This video reveals both some release dates and some upcoming titles. They are listed below!

First out, is still Black Widow at July 9 2021, followed by Shang-Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings at September 3. Eternals goes at November 5, and for the first time we had some (very) quick images from the movie too. By the end of the year – December 17 comes Spider-Man: No Way Home followed quite short after into next year by Doctor Strange in The Multiverse of Madness at 25 March 2022.

Thor: Love and Thunder comes next year at May 6 followed by Black Panther: Wakanda Forever at July 8 – where we now also has got a title for Black Panther 2.

In our MCU Timeline, we had Captain Marvel 2 flagged at November 11 2022, which also means that we now have a title for the upcoming Captain Marvel-movie: The Marvels.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania premieres February 17 2023, the year after followed by Guardians of The Galaxy Vol 3 at May 5, 2023. They also glimpsed The Fantastic Four, but without any date revealed yet.

That said, we are aware that there are more upcoming titles underway, so this is probably just the beginning!

See you at the movies!

Black Widow timeline and F&WS removed plot update

During the today’s interesting watch of internet breakdowns which confirms Falcon and Winter Soldier removed plot, we’ve also found material to fill up our occurance list with. The first part is present around 3:40 in a Black Widow trailer breakdown by Emergency Awesome that keeps track of our prior updates of when the movie takes place. Below’s a short cut from this video, showing some details for the Black Widow occurance.

As we’ve mentioned before, at least through our timeline tracker, Black Widow takes placce (occurs) short after Captain America: Civil War, but before Avengers Infinity War. However, as Charlie Schneider mentions, in the above video, it also “sounds like some of the movie will take place in actual present day after Endgame“.

As you also can see, from a part of the Black Widow prelude, which always is comics based on the movies – there are scenes present shortly after Civil War. We just don’t have any official dates yet.

There has also been a rumour floating around that Robert Downey Jr is present in the movie, which feels logical since Iron Man did not die until after Endgame. However, we recommend you to not believe in everything you see on the internet, until stuff will be offcially confirmed. A Google screen dump is not an official confirmation whatsoever. As the events in Black Widow happens after Civial War, it won’t be suprising with either cameos or flackbacks from other events.

Falcon and Winter Soldier ended – What’s up next?

With breakdowns of the season finale from Emergency Awesome and New Rockstars theorizing what will come – such as Sharon Carter in Secret Invasion – we now ask ourselves what’s up next since there will be a small gap in the time schedule before Loki starts. But first, New Rockstars mentions in the last breakdown of episode 6 that Sharon Carter “governmental access” also could open up for Armor Wars, a thing that I suspect that not everyone have been thinking of this far. But imagine; with access to techology directly linked to the government is perfectly referring to when stuff gets in the wrong hands.

While we still build the API we expect that next week will not be entirely empty, even if we haven’t checked the internet flows for a while. For example, the way Disney+ presenting the MCU right now, there should be a new episode of “Marvel Studios: Assembled” next week going for The Making of Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

And since the final episode of Captain America and The Winter soldier, there’s also a announcement of Captain America 4 that we are pushing out, both in the API and the prior MCU Timeline. This also opens up for a new extra resource for the API for what’s coming up next in order (Example: https://tools.tornevall.com/api/mcu/coming). In short, you should always be able to see what’s coming next in the schedule. Which leads us to the next point: HULU – and maybe also Star.

If don’t only count the TV-shows and MCU Films, the next thing coming in date order is as you can see above the M.O.D.O.K. animated series that was announced in february. A new post arrived at Marvel HQ just a few days ago. Even if it is supposed to be a HULU-only release, I do hope that it will be shared with Star also so that all Marvel hungry fans can continue digest more content during this spring and summer.

Do you have ideas for the MCU API?

Yeah, we’ve just included a search function in the MCU API. Parts of the API, when communicating with it, will automatically fetch some basic info from IMDB what will make the API partially searchable with a “find”-request.

If you have further ideas of what to include in a generic API for the MCU, feel free to get in touch! You can do it via the contact page.

For example, if you want to fetch all MCU related movies where Chris Evans has been an actor you can simply run a request like this: /api/mcu/find/Evans.

The finder API will then look for the data in some of the selected columns that will be returned in the request like this (be aware that the URL in the screenshot is a development server and is not guaranteed to always work). The database is also currently incomplete as this is built on tests.

We’re rebuilding the MCU Timeline – Making it available as an open API

From time to time it’s quite interesting to follow the MCU Timeline Documentation as it is continuously updated with release dates and occurances. The site is growing or changing at least once per week with new data and information for Disney+ amongst others. And since it is growing, the old documentation getting bigger.

Besides, the platform from Atlassian, is deprecated and server licensing will be removed soon. So we’re building the next timeline page as an open API instead. The first draft can be seen below, and it is aimed to be open for anyone (without authentication that is) – and is actuallt working even if the database is only halfway done.

API endpoint will be documented here and requests can at this moment be made with postman or a simple web browser!

Timeline Update – When’s in the MCU

Our apologies. We’ve – again – been a bit idle, due to life driven events. However, we’re still following the timeline of Marvel’s MCU. This sunday, New Rockstars released a Falcon and Winter Soldier breakdown, containing timeline stuff that we’d like to update. The full breakdown video is located below. We also want to add that there are plans to move out the old MCU timeline site to something that is easier to maintain than the current.

So, how do the timeline currently look? Our last guess, compared our own data with New Rockstars and Charlie “Emergency Awesome” Schneider’s, was around march 2024. Many of the calculations are based on rough weeks and months, and New Rockstars landed in april 2024.

This short video also explains the theory (Here’s the full breakdown!).

The arm scene, can be found in “Infinity War” and occurs shortly before the battle.

Updates for the Falcon and the Winter Soldier timeline

According to a breakdown analysis from Emergency Awesome, Falcon and The Winter Soldier will take place a couple of months after Avengers Endgame. As Emergency Awesome and New Rockstars has independently still confirmed that WandaVision starts around three weeks after Avengers: Endgame and ends about a month after Endgame, we have now new “In MCU”-dates to put into our timeline.

According to New Rockstars we know that WandaVision takes place around October-November 2023. Emergency Awesome also adds that the events in that series takes place “over the course of a calendar week” and therefore the series also ends about a month after the Endgame events.

This said we will most likely expect that Falcon and The Winter soldier also occurs somewhere in 2024. Hear them out below.
