By release date or in-universe chronology?

Worthless without a supercut of the Snyder/Butthole cut of all MCU movies.

It seems to be missing some of the time travel stuff from Endgame. Like Cap and Tony going back and meeting Tony's dad.

That's explained in the thread. Since they said they weren't changing the past but creating a new timeline, he felt that justification to consider those in "the present" since they weren't part of the original timeline. Sort of like Twin Pines Mall vs. Lone Pine Mall.

It does have a problem in that at least one scene in Dr. Strange has to be watched in non-linear time, while another has to be watched simultaneously forward and backward.

Different timeline!
 
2020-05-28 4:55:56 AM  
Technically speaking, you can't properly sequence anything that happens away from Earth, especially with various forms of FTL travel in the MCU (the Bifrost bridge, the wormhole in Avengers, the jump portals introduced in GOTG). Relativity tells us that different observers will order some spatially-separated events differently. "Meanwhile, on the other side of the quadrant" really becomes meaningless in the conventional sense we are used to on Earth.

It might be more consistent to try to construct a "time tree" rather than a timeline: basically, build a trunk from the individual timeline of one character - Captain America would be a good choice. Then, whenever Cap interacts with a character with a significantly different relativistic spacetime path, you can say that they are in the same time and place at that instant - for example, when Thor meets Cap - and you then reconstruct that character's time line as a "backwards branch" from the intersection point. The events on the two branches cannot be absolutely ordered relative to each other. And if a character travels in a way that is relativistically significant in between meetings with Cap, their timeline will "weave" in and out of his, crossing at each meeting.

/You're welcome.

I may have, at one point, graphed the network of the entire MCU as an excuse to learn graph databases.

As someone who lives in OC, the Disney "castmembers" are more incestuous (in the small town /HS /freshman dorm sense obv) than a ship full of Mormons stranded on Pitcairn.

Yeah. Came for a lin< redacted >.

I mean, that would be Wrong. No one would put together a BluRay-quality set of stitched together clips. Just wrong.  And they certainly wouldn't make sure it could be found by some ham-fisted googling or notice an EIP.

Which technically means the MCU ends in the third act of Endgame. For the core timeline the snap is never undone. The Avengers couldn't win so they made an alternate timeline in which they did.

/in 'serious' movies I only like time travel to be used as a threat or challenge
//using time travel to create a winning scenario only works in comedies (Bill & Ted) otherwise it is middle-school story writing

Already exists.

Well, not based off this list, but a MCU Chronological cut has been around for a while.

Not sure if I'm allowed to post a link though.

Agreed that chronological order ≠ best storytelling order. Remember this travesty?

I remember distinctly when I found out that there were more books than just The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. I was always disappointed when I was a young kid when I finished a book that I loved and there weren't any sequels because I wanted to continue reading about the world. After I think my second read-through of the book I was just randomly looking at all of the non-novel pages and stumbled on the page that all reprints have mentioning to try the rest of the books in the series. I freaked out and showed my mom (who I am sure knew there were more) and she bought me the full collection soon after.

I only read two more of them before giving up, they just didn't seem to have the magic of that first book for me. After that I became hesitant about sequels.

Yeah, the first book in an SF or fantasy series, the one that introduces the world, is often the most fun, and it's a mark of a great writer indeed who can maintain that level of enjoyability throughout the series. Even many we consider true greats like C.S. Lewis, Frank L. Baum, etc. stumbled a bit on this point. The Wizard of Oz is the classic story for a reason. None of the sequels hold up (at least the ones I read ― I gave up on them after awhile).

My point about The Chronicles of Narnia, though, was that the current publishers, in an attempt to make them more "accessible" to new or younger readers and as an insult to young readers in thinking that they can't handle non-linear storytelling, renumbered the books. They're supposed to be read in the order that they were written and published, not the chronological order of events in the books. There are things that are revealed in a specific order.

The proper order (and the order that, thank goodness, the modern movies were following) is:
1. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (↓ to 2.)
2. Prince Caspian (↓↓ to 4.)
3. The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (↓↓ to 5.)
4. The Silver Chair (↓↓ to 6.)
5. The Horse and His Boy (↑↑ to 3.)
6. The Magician's Nephew (↑↑↑↑↑ to 1.)
7. The Last Battle (the only one in the right place)
In particular, The Magician's Nephew in particular is chock full of major spoilers that utterly ruin the charm of the earlier books (especially The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe) if read before then. Yes, it takes place well before TLtW&tW, but it needs to be the second-to-last book read. The Horse and His Boy takes place during the Golden Age reign of the Two Kings and Two Queens (the four Pevensie children, having grown up in Narnia) and before their return home through the Wardrobe and back to child/teenhood when they followed the White Stag.
