Marvel Releases THE AVENGERS Movie Timeline

     May 17, 2012

On the seventh day, Joss Whedon created The Avengers.  Marvel has released a new infographic movie timeline that highlights specific super-heroic instances in time and places them in the context of The Avengers and the individual movies that built up to it.  While The Avengers franchise no doubt revolves around Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, the new infographic has made him into a pseudo-Christ figure by demarcating the timeline with BIM (“Before Iron Man”) and AIM (“After Iron Man”).  While it’s true that Iron Man had more movies than the rest of The Avengers (excluding 2003’s Hulk, which the timeline wisely forgets), I’d much rather see the scenes relative to one Special Agent Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) or even the beloved Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg).  Hit the jump to check it out.

The reportedly “Official Marvel Timeline” might have been featured in a new book released by Marvel titled, “Avengers: The Art of Marvel’s THE AVENGERS,” which you can find at Amazon.  Here’s the book’s synopsis followed by the timeline:

Marvel Studios takes readers behind the scenes of one of the most eagerly anticipated films of all time in THE ART OF THE AVENGERS. This keepsake volume is an experiential journey through the entire film from beginning to end – featuring stunning concept art; full-color photographs from the set, as well as the finished film; excerpts from the script; and exclusive interviews with the cast and crew, including writer/director Joss Whedon, producer Kevin Feige and, of course, the Avengers themselves. From costume and production design to visual effects and creature creation, THE ART OF THE AVENGERS is a lavish showcase of all the artistry and creativity that brings the Marvel Cinematic Universe to life onscreen. Avengers Assemble!
