While Daredevil is no longer the canon of MCU, his story took place within the film’s timeline. But at what point?
The Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline has been integrated now more than ever. After the events of Avengers: Endgame, the audience must now fill in the gaps between the five years after Thanos’ Snap to the months following his defeat. With new projects coming out in cinemas and at Disney +, it’s even more important and more challenging to find out where each story lies in the grand plan. But timeline navigation has always been an issue, even when shows like vovehals was in MCU. But even with the series apparently no longer canon, where does it land then in the timeline from when it was considered?
While Daredevil is a fan-favorite character and a show, the events of the series never leave a major impact on MCU. Because it is more of a series at street level, the events surrounding it are far more independent. That said, the events that take place outside of the bubble in Hell’s Kitchen play a role vovehals and even influence the narrative in significant ways. These events also help place where the show takes place on the MCU timeline.
The most obvious example that helps place season 1 of vovehals is the Battle of New York. The events of the first Avengers film helped kickstart many other events at MCU, and vovehals is no exception. The event is chronicled in a newspaper article by author Ben Urich, who also wrote about the Battle of Harlem from The amazing Hulk. However, the destruction from Chitauri also affects the motivation of vovehals‘s main antagonist, Wilson Fisk. When many were displaced after the events of Avengers, building owners wanted to take the opportunity to expand and change, and often get their tenants to move out. Even Fisk tries to do this by force to get more property for his own plans. This helps to place vovehals‘s happenings somewhere after the events of Avengers and near the end of season 1 of Agents from SHIELD.
This is further proven in vovehals Season 2, Episode 5, “Kinbaku”, where another article appears in the background titled “Cybertek Settles.” IN Agents from SHIELD, Cybertek is the company that creates Dethlok and is defeated at the end of the series’ first season. That means SHIELD has already dropped in season 2 of vovehals, and also that the season is also after Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
By vovehals‘s third season, which was released in 2018, the timeline is getting more confused. At this point, Marvel Television began to differentiate itself from the larger MCU, and its shows felt the effects of inhabiting their own narrative rather than mentioning external events.
That said, there are still ways to track its location on the timeline. Before Blip, the Marvel shows and movies that came out were mostly in similar timelines and suited in real time to its release. 2018, however, featured several prequels like Black Panther, which was set in 2016, and Ant-Man and the Wasp, which was set before Avengers: Infinity War. While Daredevil’s last season came out first in October, it was probably set before Infinity War‘s spring release and even before Ant man. Since season 3 of vovehals is set in a cooler climate, it may take place more in the winter of 2018 or the end of 2017, just before the Battle of Wakanda.
With rumors about it vovehals could return, it makes speculation that his Netflix series could be canon more plausible. But without any solid confirmation, fans are wondering what will become of the Man without fear. Nevertheless, it is clear that vovehals has a place in the timeline, though it does take some time to figure out exactly where it fits.
