I was thinking about putting text cards detailing which universe Endgame stuff takes place in. This is especially to help contradictory scenes that might be running close in time. Simultaneous contradictory scenes would be pretty easy to digest (such as the opening of GotG1 with the Morag scene from Endgame), but something like Loki escaping in Endgame will be just two scenes before he’s shown captured and sent to Asgard (from Avengers 1). What do you guys think? Also, how should the six different timelines be named, since I can’t seem to find any official names?

Perhaps we can exchange notes?

PM me if you’re interested, but it also sounds like our fanedits are pretty different.

You could name each timeline after the movie events that Endgame revisted.
I.e.
2012 - Loki timeline
2013 - Asgard timeline
2014 - Guardians timeline
and so forth.

Not a bad idea

Update time! The move has gone well, the new floor is not yet installed but most other things are unpacked including my workstation. So I’m back at it, still trying to nail down this ending sequence right now:

Zoo wee mama that’s pretty sexy. I like the concept, but also I just wanna say how much I love some of the details, too, like there being no iris before the credits, we just pan to the starfield.

I’ve actually been looking for something like that, because I’m not a Marvel expert. Thanks!

I do plan on showing the dates. My friend actually told me about Fury’s Big Week, although he wasn’t super specific (sorry if you’re reading this) and so I opted to put it in the order it’s in. There’s some other statement by the people who worked on the MCU I read back in 2015 or something that unless otherwise noted, the movies take place the year they come out. Obviously you can’t take that too seriously, Iron Man 2 and Thor are supposed to take place close together in time, they both came out in 2010 and 2011, yet Iron Man 2 takes place 6 months after 2008’s Iron Man 1. However, I tried following that rule where it made sense.

Me and my friends actually skipped Incredible Hulk while rewatching it, so I haven’t put it in yet.

doesn’t necessarily have any confirmed time placement

Yeah, I agree, and originally I put it in 2008, but again my friend convinced me. I’ll look at the video you recommended to see what they have to say.

Marvel Studios has put out these very short news videos on YouTube called “WHIH Newsfront” … Would you consider putting these in your chronological edit as a sort of buffer between the movies?

The one-shots, webisodes, and WHIH Newsfront are more likely to go in than the shows, but I’m not sure either way which I’ll decide. I’m thinking I might put them in, though, since they’re not that long and they spice it up.

“Gift” in German means “poison”.

“Mist” in German means “Manure”, which is why when a perfume company (whose name I forget) tried selling their new “Mist” perfume it didn’t sell so well in Germany.

SethBling technically has a tied world-record speedrun of Dragster. He played it on an Atari 2600 Emulator he made in minecraft, but that’s technically legal.

I’m starting to work on ANH edit. New title: “The son of Skywalker”. Other suggestions? I don’t really like “A new hope”.
Here’s a short clip, anyway. Of course it’s made frame by frame.

I’ve used the title “The Saga Begins”, but it doesn’t work so well if you put a lot of importance on the prequels.

Some 50s Sci-Fi movie inspired titles: “The Planet Destroyer”, “The Thousand World Empire”

The problem I think is that “Star Wars” is the perfect title for this movie.

If you want the chronology to be as accurate as possible, I suggest that you take a look at this detailed timeline that dozens of people have put together:

https://www.thecomicboard.com/threads/marvel-cinematic-universe-timeline-continued.14631/

All of the canonical tv shows are also in place on this timeline that you’ll have to ignore (unless you want a 500+ hour fan edit) since you’re just focusing on the movies.

I’ve actually been looking for something like that, because I’m not a Marvel expert. Thanks!

I noticed you put Iron Man in 2010 and separated Iron Man 2, Thor, and The Incredible Hulk, whereas those three movies are usually put in the same week titled “Fury’s Big Week” according to other material. … The specifics porbably won’t matter to this fan edit unless you wanted to display the year on screen upon changing.

I do plan on showing the dates. My friend actually told me about Fury’s Big Week, although he wasn’t super specific (sorry if you’re reading this) and so I opted to put it in the order it’s in.

However, I tried following that rule where it made sense.

Obviously though if people are coming into the thread and pointing it out, Iron Man 2 and Thor taking place in the same week is probably pretty commonly accepted. I’ll fix that.

Me and my friends actually skipped Incredible Hulk while rewatching it, so I haven’t put it in yet.

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.

I tried to edit the OT into a 3 in 1 movie, I consider it a failure.

For one, 3 in 1 prequel edits work because the prequels have a ton of filler, and the OT doesn’t really. There is a ton of stuff you could cut (the point of my 3 in 1 edit was to have one single Death Star, so obviously the Death Star attack in ANH could go), but not nearly as much. I couldn’t really get it shorter than 3h55, and I cheated by speeding it up from 23.976 FPS to 25 FPS.

Secondly, I felt like having the Jabba’s Palace sequence in the same movie as Han getting frozen in carbonite was… bad? It felt like backtracking, although I could also see it being like a chance to see more of the universe? In a meta way?

I don’t know. Don’t let this discourage you, rocknroll41’s idea especially seems promising. I’m just warning you it’ll definitely be hard to get to work.

I think the best way to handle Han being frozen in carbonite is to cut this subplot.

Yet I am unsure on how to do so. The best way I see is to adjust the scene of Lando visiting Han, Leia, Chewie and 3PO in their cell, so it is hinted that he may help them and then dubb the dialogue of an imperial officer telling Vader that the prisoners escaped.
On bord of the falcon Han would rest, still suffering, because he was tortured by the Empire (use the scene of him laying down on the plank bed in the cell).

The most difficult challenge would be to add Han to the escape from Cloud City sequence.
Even though he would be unable to fight, because of the torture he experienced a few minutes ago.

I also have a slight feeling a very skilled editor could change the ending to RotJ to have Han be killed in the freezing process. This is probably easier, though.
