A “Brief” Recap of the MCU Timeline (Part One)

Reblogged from ProbablyWork.com

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is only 13 years old and it’s already the biggest, most-expansive franchise in movie history! Starting in 2008 with “Iron Man”, the series is still going strong in 2021 with the recent releases of “Wandavision”, “Falcon and the Winter Soldier”, “Black Widow”, and of course the mind-bending season finale of “Loki” (now streaming on Disney+), not to mention a couple more titles hitting theaters this year (“Eternals”, “Spider-man: No Way Home”, etc)!

Together, the two Lokis eventually found themselves in a realm at the end of time known as the Void, where all manner of Lokis have been discarded amongst the remnants of countless erased timelines, including Kid Loki, President Loki, and Gator Loki. With the valiant sacrifice of an older Loki, Sylvie and Loki are able to combine their powers and enchant the hangry cloud monster known as Alioth, revealing a portal to… somewhere?
