The Black Order in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Revealed at D-23

Avengers: Infinity War debuted a teaser trailer earlier today at D-23 but not only that, we now have Thanos’ henchmen. The group was referred to as Thanos’ children, but in the comics they are known as the Black Order. From left to right we have Corvus Glaive, Proxima Midnight, Thanos himself, Ebony Maw and Black Dwarf.

Avengers: Infinity War and its sequel are being directed by Joe and Anthony Russo with a script from Captain America: Winter Soldier and Civil War writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Timeline Explained

Hey guys Rex Overdrive here and since watching Spider-Man: Homecoming my brain has been trying to grasp the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline with some new things that Homecoming threw into the mix. This will also contain some minor spoilers to Homecoming so keep that in mind if you haven’t seen the movie.

Alright, so the beginning of Homecoming opens up with a flashback scene of Adrian Toomes aka The Vulture and his crew, cleaning up the mess from the battle of New York from the first Avengers movie. The film then flashes a title card stating 8 years later. Now for me this is the main thing that made my head pretty much explode, and I tend to be big on continuity so I had to try and get a better grasp on this, and where Homecoming stands timeline wise with the rest of the other films in the MCU.

This kind of gets complicated but here’s what I got. The first Avengers film seems to be set in 2012 which is the year it was released, which would place homecoming in the year 2020. Also, Iron Man 3 takes place roughly 6 months after The Avengers placing it around christmas of that year which makes The Avengers taking place May or June 2012.

In a scene during Captain America: Civil War it’s implied that the year is 2016 and 2 months later, we now reach the events of Spider-Man: Homecoming. However, if we look at a scene with The Vision during Civil War, he states that it’s been 8 years since Tony Stark announced himself as Iron Man. Referring to the first Iron Man movie which came out in 2008 and Civil War in 2016. During the scene in which General Ross presents the “Sekovia Accords”, he states that The Avengers have been operating for 4 years (2012-2016).


This 8 year time skip from the first Avengers movie means one or two things. Spider-Man: Homecoming actually takes place in 2020 or, Marvel are changing the timeline so that the first Avengers film is not set in 2012. This all kind of sums up that The Avengers takes place in 2008 the same year as the first Iron Man.

We can also refer to the comic “Fury’s Big Week” which shows that Iron Man 2, Thor and The Incredible Hulk all take place during the same week and that The Avengers would be sometime later that year. Having never read this comic, this all just seems a little too close together and a bit too convientant.

If you look at all this, Homecoming clearly takes place 2 months after Civil War setting it in 2016 and placing the first Avengers film sometime in 2008. Continuity can be pretty muddy if certain things aren’t laid out clearly, and even causing continuity errors, but I want to know what you guys think of this? Were you left scratching your head after Spider-Man: Homecoming or does continuity not really bother you?
