Marvel timeline. (Very helpful, kind of bonkers)

Posted May 9 into Movies by John Birmingham

The Washington Post has a great 'condensed' time line of all the key events leading up to Avengers: Endgame. If you've lost track or missed a few episodes this will save you dozens of hours of catch up viewing. Fair warning, it might also cause you to question why you spent so much of your life invested in this crazy shit.

Grab it here.

I when do you think Marvel Studios realised what a franchise monster they had created, do you think it was when they said, sure make a goofy Guardians of the Galaxy movie we can take the loss and it was a mega hit? Also I really like the observation that Guardians of the Galaxy is the Australian series Farscape Marvelised. Not as amusing as the theory Guardians of the Galaxy is just the Avengers playing a RPG.

This extended timeline has Hudson Hongo over at IO9 musing on their mortality.
"I’ll be honest, events like the 2008 financial crisis have conditioned me not to plan too far ahead. At my most optimistic, I’ll entertain two- or three-year goals. But there’s something disturbingly concrete about a date like “December 2027.” It’s a date that will certainly come to pass, whether we’re all here to see it or not.

What will life be like 2027? Will there still be bees? Coral reefs? Discrete meteorological seasons the average person would recognise as “summer” and “winter”? Hard to say, but Disney is pretty sure there will be five Avatar movies.

And more importantly, what will my life be like in eight years? "

Five Avatar movies? We're doomed.

the kids watched the first one yesterday. It's okay, but it does have that white man saves indigenous people vibe to it that Dances with wolves had. I also tremble at the thought of four more avatar movies to come. Because of MCU everyone is going to try and milk us all for extended story line not very good movies. I sat back and counted how much we spent on those marvel movies. Spoiler: it was a lot.
