Fan Creates MCU Timeline & Google Maps Location Lists
Put this one under very cool things people who have insane amounts of time on their hands do. It appears that Marvel's sprawling Cinematic Universe was in need of a few resources to keep the events manageable. At least Reddit user MrRLopez seems to think so. Lopez has painstakingly created an interactive timeline and world map for the entire MCU. The timeline begins with the foundation of the Arena club in 1906 as per the events of Agent Carter and goes right up to the Stark Expo in October 2018, referenced in promotional material for Spider-Man: Homecoming. The list covers just about every event from both the films and television series.
If that weren't enough, MrRLopez has also created a Google Maps based world map to go along with the timeline which houses every location mentioned in the films and television series. Click each location to see a brief description of any event that transpired at that particular spot. Of course, locations outside the boundary of our atmosphere are left out of the listing, but that's to be expected.
Thankfully, he's open to corrections or additions and this passion project will be ongoing, for at least as long as the MCU continues to give us locations and events to remember. It's getting kind of crazy isn't it? Checking out those links kinds of puts things into perspective. My own thoughts on the future of the MCU not withstanding, there's plenty of universe building left to do if Marvel and Disney's Box Office credentials are to be trusted.
We need our black leading men and women to shine and if their movies don’t make money, they don’t get roles in the future, so take this L. Yea, I know. Still though.
In the case of Deadpool 2, the raunchy jokes, physical humor, movie references and Reynolds’ charm were all on display, but it still felt a little like someone else following a paraphrased recipe, hoping to capture the magic of the original chef and dish.
Get Out's Jordan Peele and Jason Blum are Lee's partners on the film, so look out for something interesting.
Her pioneering work as a woman in show business and her place in superhero fandom will live on. She will be missed.
On every level, this movie satisfies. Top notch action sequences, levity and emotional heft can all be found here. After Killmonger, and now with Thanos, it may be safe to say that Marvel's figured out its villain problem.
A movie that almost requires repeat viewing, Black Panther lives up to the hype in so many ways. Not the most action packed Marvel movie you'll ever see but still so full of excellence and power. A masterwork by director Ryan Coogler, Captain America: Winter Soldier may finally have been unseated as Marvel's best work.
One of the key things that make Black Panther so different from the vast majority of heroes in the pantheon, and especially in the MCU, is the fact that he is also ruler of a nation.
If you're older than 35 and are an avid Star Wars fan, this movie may unsettle you, or even upset you. It is very different. The themes of hope, light, darkness and the struggle between them are there and very present but many things, such as humor, diversity, and even style are different.
Every news outlet and their mother have been reporting that Disney is set to close a deal to buy Fox's film and television divisions for upwards of $60 billion and that sale will be final within days. Now, lots of people are talking about the hardcore negatives of monopolies and business-controlled markets, and that's all well and good, but you're here to read about Deadpool and the X-Men, among others, joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Just who is the character? Who the hell is Thanos? Let's talk about a little backstory for the character in the comic books. Thanos is an Eternal. Eternals are basically very powerful immortals with a huge and convoluted back story. Even amongst the Eternals, Thanos was considered a "mutant" because of the Deviant Syndrome.
