My mom is a big fan of Lost, and when I was 16 she had me watch it with her, since she had the full show on DVD, and I loved it too. I discovered a fanedit of Lost called Chronologically Lost, which puts the whole show into chronological order, and puts simultaneous scenes synchronously on screen at the same time.
Years later, watching Endgame in theaters, I was reminded of this, and thought I should make a fanedit like that. Marvel and Lost are very different stories, the timelines are handled very differently, and both stories’ approaches to time travel are on exact opposite extremes of the spectrum, and there aren’t as many cool simultaneous scenes that make Chronologically Lost so interesting, but it’s still a cool thing to check out.
I plan on putting the first 22 movies (Iron Man 1 through Endgame) in the fanedit, because they’re the “Infinity Saga”, however my girlfriend and my brother really want me to put Far From Home in the fanedit, saying it’s the real last movie in the Infinity Saga, not Endgame. I wouldn’t know, I haven’t seen Far From Home.
I’m putting the movies in as I rewatch them with my girlfriend, and my friend who’s helping with the fanedit. We want to rewatch them all partially to make sure I have the actual timelines of the movies down, but also partially just as an excuse to watch all the movies. Plus we’ve also put in Captain Marvel, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and Infinity War, since we’ve seen them recently enough that we remember them, at least much better than we remembered Iron Man 2, for example.
Endgame clips will be placed in the timeline normally, even in alternate universes. Simultaneous clips will be played simultaneously, clips that take place in the past just through time travel will be placed normally. Even like with the GotG1 opening and the Power Stone heist, where they clearly contradict each other.
I’m not sure if we’ll include the webisodes, Chronologically Lost did. We definitely will not be including the TV shows. The movies alone already have 47 hours and 48 minutes of runtime, we don’t need a TV show.
Here is the timeline so far. I’ll be updating this as we add movies.
This will probably come out shortly after Endgame is released on Blu Ray.
