WIth two different ABC series, four Netflix series, various short films, and 14 theatrical releases, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is expanding at an increasing rate.
This year alone will see two more Netflix series debut with Punisher and Defenders, another ABC series with Inhumans, possible pilots of Runaways and Cloak & Dagger, as well as Guardians of the Galaxy, Spider-Man, and Thor films, but let’s not count our chickens before they hatch—the MCU, as it is, is pretty daunting. And it would take you just under a week to watch everything.
One Reddit user compiled a thorough timeline consisting of every of media ever released in the MCU, including webseries like WHIH Newsfront and Agents of SHIELD’s Slingshot, which tallies up to 6 days, 15 hours, and 41 minutes of screen time.
That’s a whole lot of Marvel, so plan your pre-Guardians/Spider-Man/Thor marathons accordingly, and make sure you have a few sick days lined up at work.
While the films are substantial in their own rights, a lot of the runtime can be chalked up to the various TV properties. That includes four seasons of Agents of SHIELD, two of Agent Carter and Daredevil, as well as seasons of Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and now Iron Fist.
Marvel’s takeover will continue to expand with the five new series set to hit TVs over the coming year, not to mention all of the films that are scheduled for release.
All of these will be released by the time Avengers: Infinity War his theaters. If you’re planning to watch everything in anticipation of the film’s release, we just want to know WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU?
Just kidding. You do you, boo.
