Shouldn't Loki technically come after Avengers, since that's where he jumped from?

Missing, Hulk and Spiderman (I know, they're non-Disney, but still MCU).

Its all dumb and not getting worked up over. For instance, the end of Ant and Wasp takes place after Inf War, but according to this list, eh. Its depends on what part of the movie youre talking about, and whether anyone should really care anyway. Which they shouldn't. It only matters to clickbait article writers.

Sure, but if anyone's going to bother following this viewing order as a first timer instead of just going by release date they're going to get spoiled on a bunch of Loki relevant information all the way up to the original's death. Even if that wasn't the case, it's probably 'better' to experience the original before watching his variant take a different path.

Yes. Should have at least been mentioned in TFA.

Is this really that surprising, though? It's interesting, but MCU content appearing out of chronological order is both not that unusual and in some cases inevitable.

Son, this is clickbait.

Apropos of almost nothing, YouTube has recently offered me some clips of Ang Lee's Hulk. I remember not liking the movie, though the attempt at picture-in-picture to mimic comics was solid. Seeing it now I'm struck by how Hulk always has "human" eyes. It's ridiculous. In the middle of a rage he's emoting like he might cry. I can forgive bad CGI, especially in older films. I can't forgive inept decisions like making the freaking Hulk sympathetic with dime store facial expressions.

The first scenes, sure. But the show is about time travel and operating outside the ordinary flow of time, so no.

The placement is pretty logical as that is where the events of the series will impact the broader timeline. The events of End Game caused Loki (so it is after that) and It makes sense that the defeat of the TVA happened before WandaVision so we have that.

OK, let me clear up this muddy window...

Iron Man 2, Incredible Hulk, and Thor (1) are all happening somewhat simultaneously. Partway through IM2, Coulson leaves to deal with Thor's arrival. The Hulk scene with Stark & Ross takes place after the end of IM2 when Tony's named the "Consultant" for the Avengers Initiative.

GOTG 1&2 are happening back-to-back in the same year (2014) as Winter Soldier on Earth (despite GOTG2 being out in 2017).

Doctor Strange (1) actually takes place over a long span from 2016 to 2017, so Civil War, Homecoming, Black Panther, and Thor: Ragnarok all happen while Doctor Strange's story is being told.

Black Panther takes place several weeks to several months after Civil War, not immediately after as most people seem to think. Yes, Wakanda had no official King for that time period.

Antman & The Wasp happens simultaneously with Avengers: Infinity War, with everyone being snapped/blipped at the end.

The after-credits scene from Captain Marvel featuring Captain Marvel showing up at the Avengers Compound asking "Where's Fury" takes place after Infinity War (obviously) and it's why she shows up at the beginning of Endgame to rescue Tony and Nebula. She went out looking for them after she showed up on Earth, responding to Fury's signal, and tracked the pager to the Avengers who briefed her on everything.

Loki takes place out of known time and space. That's why it's placed where it is. Yes, the events to him take place right after Avengers (1), but as it's all happening at the end of time in an intersection of the multiverse, the fallout from it is all over space and time. However, because the events of Loki are so dependent on information learned during the Infinity War, it's necessary to place the story after Endgame on the chronological timeline because, quite frankly, if you watch it without watching Infinity War and Endgame you won't know what the fark's going on. You need to know that Loki escaped, you need to know what the Infinity Stones are, you need to know about Thanos' attempt to use them, you need to know what the Infinity Gauntlet is, you need to know about Loki's ultimate demise at Thanos' hands, you need to know that Thanos failed.

Since you can't know any of those things until after Endgame, the only sensible place to put Loki's show is after Endgame.

WandaVision is a couple weeks after Endgame. Falcon & Winter Soldier is likely happening simultaneously.

Black Widow is actually not entirely after Civil War. It's after most of Civil War, but before the end scene where Cap breaks everyone out of the Raft prison.

Spider-Man Homecoming happens at the same time as parts of Doctor Strange, and probably around the same time as Black Panther.

Spider-Man Far From Home happens around the same time as WandaVision and Falcon & Winter Soldier.

Especially since Wanda becoming the Scarlet Witch May be a Nexus Event:

Correction. Ragnarok takes place shortly after Doctor Strange (1).

Chronological order is stupid...release order is how they were watched, and how they should be watched by anybody jumping in new.  Captain Marvel makes zero sense if you watch it after Captain America...things like this are just your standard clickbait by writers out of ideas.

Ant man and Wasp takes place concurrently with infinity war. Much like Black Panther, Black Widow and Homecoming all take place concurrently after Civil War.

As for Loki, it makes sense that it takes place after Endgame. The 2012 New York in Endgame chronologically years after the first avengers film. Remember, when you travel to the past, that past becomes your future and altering the future doesn't take place in the past.

So yeah, back to the future is a bunch of bullshiat.

And you'll spend a lot of time wondering why Fury never called her in. Especially in 2012.

He jumped from Endgame.  When they went back into the past, that past became their future.  Loki's escape from the now-present made him a variant relative to the Sacred Timeline.

Maybe he did, but the situation resolved itself before she got to Earth. Infinity War could have been the only time he didn't get a chance to text her back "FALSE ALARM, NM" because he went poof.

Yep, something I have been saying since IW came out.

The various events on Earth prior to IW lasted a few days. Captain Marvel took weeks, if not months, to arrive after Fury pages her in IW.

Plus, in 2012 he had every confidence that his Avengers team would be able to handle the situation, and he was right.

And that's the thing.  With the distance / delay in calling her in, she's not an instant response type backup.  If the Avengers had lost and the Chitari had dug in in New York and started conquering the rest of the planet, sure, he'd have called her in at that point.  But not before that point.

Re: Captain America and Captain Marvel at the beginning

This is the timeline, not the viewing order.
