Parting Shot: The Official Cinematic Avengers Timeline
The Avengers movie is an unqualified hit, with over a billion dollars in worldwide box office (and $50 million for Robert Downey Jr. alone). The culmination of years of inter-related Marvel superhero blockbusters, The Avengers melded the heroes and stories of Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Captain America and Thor into both a superteam and a supermovie. Now, Marvel has released an official timeline detailing the events of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, from its book Avengers: The Art of Marvel's The Avengers, which is worth a look for any comics (or comics movie) fan. The full image is pretty big, so click through after the jump to see the whole thing in its scrolling glory.
