Fans' official MCU timeline is an ever-changing and ever-evolving process, especially as more new characters are added to the franchise's growth almost by the week these days. However, there are still a few exceptions from that nailed-down timeline, including 2008's The Incredible Hulk.
The Incredible Hulk is often overlooked in the franchise's vast history as the only Hulk solo film since its debut in June 2008, becoming the first film to truly expand the MCU's horizons when Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark/Iron Man appeared in the film's final scenes.
Fans have a fairly definitive sense of where The Incredible Hulk falls amongst its MCU peers chronologically, thanks to a recent Disney+ listing. That placement has apparently been confirmed for the angry green Avenger's only solo appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
When Does The Incredible Hulk Set On the MCU Timeline?
The Disney+ service in both Spain and Japan has confirmed where 2008's The Incredible Hulk resides in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The Incredible Hulk is the fifth MCU film to be released in theaters after Iron Man, following both of the 2008 and 2010 Iron Man movies, and it is just ahead of Thor's 2011 film.
The full MCU timeline with all 34 projects to date is below, with the exception ofSpider-Man: No Way Home and Thor: Love and Thunder, both of which are still in theaters:
The following graph summarizes all 34 live-action projectsm along with Phase 1'sMarvel One-Shots:
Fury's Big Week on Timeline Completes Hulk
The footage matches fairly well with the sequence of events in this listing when you examine the movie's place in the MCU timeline.
Fans can see video footage from Culver University's penultimate interview on the Hulk's struggle against General Ross and the United States Army in Iron Man 2. That would mean that Iron Man 2 would complete its own story before The Incredible Hulk's is almost finished.
Fans are also familiar with The Incredible Hulk's participation in "Fury's Big Week," which includes the plots of Iron Man 2 and Thor all within the same week in Phase 1.
The Incredible Hulk's new destination is one of the easiest to follow due to it being so explicitly included in the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase 1.
The Incredible Hulk is now available as a domestic release, and it is available for streaming on Disney+ in a few countries.
