A “Brief” Recap of the MCU Timeline (Part Seven – Phase 5 Vol. 1 – World’s Collide)

In Part 1Part 2Part 3, and Part 4 of my (overly ambitious) chronological MCU Timeline Breakdown, we covered the Infinity Saga (“Captain America: The First Avenger” to “Avengers: Endgame”), then in Part 5 and Part 6 we covered ‘Phase Four’ (with the start of the Multiverse Saga), and now we’re delving into the first half of Phase Five

Note: the schedule has been shifted around a bit…

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania (2023)

“Quantumania” continues the story of Scott Lang and his family, last seen in “Ant-Man and the Wasp” and “Avengers: Endgame”. Scott, Hope, and their daughter Cassie all get sucked into the Quantum Realm, along with Hank and Janet – where they face off against the time travelling despot trapped there, Kang the Conqueror! (see: Loki – Season 1) While this wasn’t the best MCU movie to date, it did have some cool / funny moments.

Guardians of the Galaxy – Vol 3 (2023)

In ‘Volume 3‘, James Gunn gives us a heartfelt send off for the Guardians of the Galaxy with one of the most epic adventures in the MCU so far! (Picks up after the events of “Avengers: Endgame”, “Thor: Love and Thunder”, and “The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special”)

Secret Invasion (2023)

Follows Nick Fury as he tries to stop a conspiracy by a rogue faction of Skrulls hiding on Earth. While it has its moments, this one is considered by many to be the low point of the MCU’s Disney Plus series…

The Marvels (2023)

Following the events of “Ms. Marvel” – Captain Marvel, Kamala Khan, and Monica Rambeau (aka Photon – last seen in “WandaVision”) find themselves connected by some strange power, and must team up to stop Kree Supremor Dar-Benn! If nothing else, this one’s a fun popcorn movie with some great characters.

What If…? (Season 2)

The random multiverse shenanigans continue with: a Film Noir style story following Nebula as a Nova Corps detective, an 80’s version of the Avengers, What if Hela got ahold of the Ten Rings?, Marvel 1602, a Happy Hogan Christmas Special, the return of Evil Doctor Strange, and the continuing adventures of Captain Carter!

Loki (Season 2)

Loki – Season 2 gives us one of the most hard-hitting endings to what is easily the best Disney Plus series in the MCU! (Seriously go watch it.)

Deadpool & Wolverine! (2024)

Coming soon to the MCU… ‘Nuff said. (For more on the X-Men movies, click here true believer!)

Next Time – Part Eight (Phase 5 Vol 2): Captain America: Brave New World, Agatha All Along, Daredevil: Born Again, Iron Heart, and The Thunderbolts!
