The Marvel Cinematic Universe is getting extremely complex at this point with new movies and tv series popping up all over the place, so even the biggest Marvel fans would be forgiven for having gaps in their knowledge. Fortunately, there's a book on the way that will help you make sense of it all. Marvel Studios The Marvel Cinematic Universe An Official Timeline from authors Anthony Breznican, Amy Ratcliffe, and Rebecca Theodore-Vachon, was created in collaboration with Marvel Studios. MCU boss Kevin Feige even signed off on the project by writing the foreword. 

The book is touted as a complete guide to the MCU that answers questions like "what happened, when, where, and why":

"Follow the entire story of the MCU from before the Big Bang to the Blip and beyond. Along the way, learn more about the evolution of the Iron Man armors, the hunt for the Infinity Stones, and the formation of the Multiverse. Want to know how many times aliens have invaded Earth, or the complete history of Cap's shield? Look no further!"


Interestingly, they were able to cram all of this knowledge into 320 pages while also supplying visual elements like infographics, timelines, and movie stills. So, it might be too pretty to tuck away on your shelf. Instead, you can make room for it on your coffee table before it arrives on September 5th.
