Spider-Man: Far From Home Ruins the MCU Timeline Once More

When Spider-Man: Homecoming premiered in theatres, it presented a significant continuity error. It has driven obsessive followers insane. They attempted to piece together the timelines of the events of Marvel’s The Avengers, Captain America: Civil War, and the Spidey flick. So the launch of Spider-Man: Far From Home wouldn’t coincide if it did not do something comparable.


Timeline Continuity Trouble In Far From Home

Spider-Man: Far From Home develops yet one more continuity trouble. It was an attempt to fix the timeline after Avengers: Endgame. It’s not as glaring as the “Eight Years Later” time dive from the first film.

When the audience meets Peter Parker in the Civil War, he explains that he is 15 years old. Spider-Man: Homecoming occurs a year later on. He was a Freshman in secondary school at the time of his introduction. However, he has since started his Sophomore year in his first solo film.

Currently, the events of Avengers: Infinity War as well as Avengers: Endgame tossed some major wrinkles below. It’s not clear when specifically Infinity War occurs. It’s affordable to presume that a great amount of time has passed. Mainly it’s revealed that Peter Parker has taken his midterms (which is primarily mentioned in Spider-Man: Far From Home).

Many secondary schools have different schedules for their courses. Some trainees participate in one collection of courses for half the academic year after that alter for the 2nd fifty per cent. Others do year-round classes, indicating those mid-terms would take place in December or January. This isn’t essential details, but vital to aiding recognise how much time has passed in the MCU when these films take place.

Thanos’ snap occurs sometime in 2018, after Peter’s homecoming dance (usually in September or October) as well as after his mid-terms. He after that goes away, together with half of the populace, before going back to Earth in 2023.

Then, Spider-Man: Far From Home describes that Peter and also his schoolmates currently took their mid-terms. They had to start the school year over despite their progress before the snap, which indicates the film needs to take place in 2024.

All of this is great till Mysterio tries to supply Peter Parker a beer, and also the young hero transforms him down because he’s only 16. However, he was 15 throughout the events of Captain America: Civil War. So, also after the return from “the Blip,” this is still as well short of an amount of time contrasted to the occasions illustrated on display.

These flicks are more regarding informing cohesive stories as opposed to making sure everything lines up on the schedule. This is likewise the sort of question that if asked, Kevin Feige would roll his eyes instead of an effort to discuss exactly how it makes sense in the MCU.

Still, it’s amusing that a Spider-Man film is once more the most significant perpetrator is making a mistake about the timeline.
