When Does Spider-Man: Homecoming Take Place?
When does Spider-Man: Homecoming take place? We already know that the film is eight years after the events of Captain America: Civil War, but what about the time after Halloween? Or even after the movie Moon Knight? That’s the question everyone has been asking. The good news is that we now have a bit of information about this important movie. Here’s how to date this film. But first, here are a few things you should know about this film’s setting.
Spider-Man: Homecoming takes place eight years after Captain America: Civil War
When does Spider-Man: Homecoming take a year after the last MCU movie? That’s the question that many fans of the superhero are asking themselves, especially since the original Avengers film was set eight years before the first Spider-Man movie. But, that timeline is inaccurate! According to Marvel Studios, the movie takes place four years after Avengers: Infinity War, which was released eight years before Homecoming.
When does Spider-Man: Homecoming take a year after The Avengers: Infinity War? It can’t take place eight years after Civil War. That would be a bad move, but directors have already admitted that 8 years after Infinity War was a mistake. So, if the new movie takes place eight years after The Avengers: Infinity War, it will take place in August 2020, or two and a half years after Homecoming.
After the events of Avengers: Infinity War, the heroes must try to mend their rift with Thanos, and now have five years to undo the damage. Meanwhile, Wanda Maximoff must try to make peace with Tony Stark, after her family was destroyed in a bombing, and was left for days with her brother. The story follows their efforts to reunite their families, but they can’t do it alone.
It is set in 2020
After a brief prologue in 2012’s The Avengers, Spider-Man: Homecoming opens with the character Adrian Toomes. Toomes, who was indirectly driven out of business by Tony Stark, decides to set up his own criminal underworld. The film then jumps ahead eight years and takes place in 2020. So, the movie is set a few years later than The Avengers, which is a bit of a stretch.
The time jump between the previous films, The Avengers and Spider-Man: Homecoming, suggests that they take place eight years after the battle in New York. While Civil War takes place a couple of months later, Homecoming is set in 2020. The eight year time gap means that Spider-Man: Homecoming takes place in 2020, while The Avengers took place in 2012. The timelines aren’t exact, but they are close enough. The director of the film, Joe Russo, apologized for the “8 years later” title card.
After the events of CIVIL WAR, the next Marvel film follows. This one takes place two months after that movie, and Peter Parker has a rebirth and a renewed sense of purpose. It’s a coda to the last storytelling phase of the MCU, and a foreshadowing of where the MCU is likely to go next. So, which of the two Spider-Man movies do you want to see?
It is set after Halloween in 2024
Spider man homecoming takes place four years after the events of Captain America: Civil War. Although the first Avengers film took place four years ago, it is impossible to tell if this movie will happen sooner. The film takes place in the year 2024, four years after Captain America: Civil War. However, the sequel may take place sooner. The movie is set four years after the first Avengers film, so there’s a possibility that Ant-Man and the Wasp will be left out.
The movie has already spoiled a major reveal from the last Spider-Man movie. The final reveal will be a big surprise for fans of the Marvel comic series, with the aunt May discovering that her nephew is Spider-Man. After that movie ended, Kevin Feige promised to make it bigger than ever on the big screen. This scene also has fans wondering when we’ll see Venom’s big reveal on the big screen.
The second Marvel movie to take place after No Way Home and after Captain America: Civil War is titled Hawkeye. Both films are set a year after the events of Avengers: Endgame. While these two projects aren’t directly connected, the timeframe is quite similar. This film is based on the same world as the second Marvel movie, so both projects are set after Halloween. If these movies do indeed take place at the same time, they should be set a year apart.
It is set after Moon Knight in 2025
If you’re wondering if Spider man homecoming will be set after the events of the movie Moon Knight, then you’re in for a treat. The movie is set in 2025 and features the resurrected Moon Knight. In the comic books, Moon Knight is a benevolent god who rules over time and is worshipped as a healer and compassionate protector. The Moon Knight can communicate with different aspects of himself, like Marc does with Steven. The similarities between the two heroes are quite apparent.
In the comics, Layla Abdallah El-Faouly has left Egypt ten years before. Her father died in mysterious circumstances a decade earlier, so she’s been searching for him ever since. This clue hints that the movie is set ten years after Moon Knight, which would make Spider-Man homecoming set after Moon Knight in 2025. But the comics reveal that the story isn’t as simple as that. While the storyline may be based on an origin story, it’s still possible that this movie could be a spin-off of the character.
Though not exactly clear when the movie takes place, it is safe to assume that the events of Moon Knight are five years after Avengers: Infinity War. The movie stars Marc Spector and Steven Grant at age 37, but there’s no information on the exact year of filming. Although the movie is set in the future, most of the major events will take place in 2025. Infinity War is also part of Marvel’s Phase Four, which began with WandaVision. Other Marvel characters introduced during the movie include WandaVision, Shang-Chi, and the Eternals.
It is set after Hawkeye in 2024
A new Marvel Comics series will take place after the end of the Avengers franchise. The series, Hawkeye, is set two years after Avengers: Endgame. In this universe, the final battle takes place in the year 2023. However, the upcoming Hawkeye TV series will take place in 2024 and the show is likely to take place during Christmas time. While the series will not specifically reference Spider-Man, there will likely be a lot of Avengers callbacks, including the Tower of the Avengers. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, New York City is used to getting back to normal after disasters, and this series is no different.
While the timeline is somewhat vague, there are plenty of details. The title card for the film suggests Michael Keaton as The Vulture. The film will be set in 2024, four years after the events of Captain America: Civil War. Since both films were released in 2012, the timeline for Spider-Man: Homecoming could be a bit off. The film will be set a couple of years after the events of the first Avengers movie, putting it four years after the events in The Avengers: Civil War. The Avengers: Endgame will also be set in the same time period as the new Spider-Man movie.
It is set after Far From Home in 2025
The sequel to Spider-Man: Far From Home is set five years after the events of the first film. The characters have dispersed across the world and galaxies, leaving the surviving Avengers to cope with their situation. Captain Marvel has a new hairstyle, Captain America is running group therapy in New York, and Black Widow is eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. As the plot progresses, the remaining Avengers must travel through space and time to collect the Infinity Stones, which will snap everyone back into existence.
No Way Home’s first scene begins in the mid-credits scene, and features J. Jonah Jameson, the man who was once swayed by Mysterio to believe that Spider-Man is a villain. This scene occurs one week after Peter’s final battle with Mysterio in London. The rest of the first act focuses on the fallout from this revelation, with Peter facing a legal trial.
The film’s setting and timeframe are intriguing. The sequel could set 2025 as the year of the Avengers’ clash in the movie. It also shows Peter dealing with problems that he faces while trying to balance his newfound superpowers and his high school life. Similarly, the movie will also see Peter face off against the villain Vulture, a black market weapons dealer who has scavenged technology from the Avengers’ war.
It is set after Toomes’ fight with the Vulture
After Toomes’ fight with the Vulture in the last movie, we learn that the Vulture is the villain of Spider man homecoming. As you might guess from the name, the Vulture is a super villain with a deep comic book feud with Spider-Man. In this new film, he will take on Spider-Man once again in order to reclaim the title of the Marvel Universe’s most powerful hero.
After the fight with Toomes, we learn that Toomes had become a superhuman and had an exo-suit. He wore it to try and knock Spider-Man off the plane. In a scene that features Spider-Man and the Vulture, Toomes wore the exo-suit and used his claws to try to knock the Vulture out of the plane. The two of them nearly fell into the engine of the plane.
While Toomes had previously worked for the Avengers, Toomes also worked for a salvage company. After the Battle of New York, this company is taken over by the Department of Damage Control, a joint venture between Tony Stark and the U.S. government. Toomes convinces his employees to keep the Chitauri technology, and uses it to develop advanced weapons. The Vulture is a recognizable face from the 1990s cartoon, so the film is set after Toomes’ fight with the Vulture.
When Does Spider-Man: Homecoming Take Place?
You see, Spider-Man Homecoming takes place eight years after The Avengers, and it also takes place two months after Civil War (and, according to a line by Vision, Civil War takes place eight years after Tony Stark revealed himself as Iron Man). To top it all off, Spider-Man is supposed to be 15 in Spider-Man Homecoming. Do the math and, according to the current understanding of the MCU timeline (Iron Man and “Fury’s Big Week” is supposed to take place in 2010), none of it lines up.
It seems that Feige has adjusted some of the years these movies take place behind the scenes to allow Peter Parker three years in high school. So, what’s the new timeline that the MCU is working off of now? Well, until Feige makes an official statement, nobody knows for sure. But, after hours of scratching my head and crunching numbers, here’s my altered MCU timeline to try and figure it out. Be warned: it’s a long read.
- Iron Man begins in early-to-mid 2009 and ends nine months later in early 2010.
- Iron Man 2 begins six months later, in mid-2010, during “Fury’s Big Week.”
- Thor takes place in mid-2010, during “Fury’s Big Week.”
- The Incredible Hulk begins in late 2009 to early 2010 and ends in mid-2010, during “Fury’s Big Week.”
- Captain America, the First Avenger, ends around late 2010 or early 2011.
- The Avengers takes place in early 2011 (a year after Fury’s Big Week, as stated in the movie).
- Iron Man 3 takes place in December 2012 (13 years after 1999).
- Thor 2 takes place in late 2013 when the reemergence of the Aether wakes Marvel’s cosmic universe back up.
- Guardians of the Galaxy takes place in early-to-mid 2014.
- Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 takes place in late 2014.
- Captain America: The Winter Soldier takes place in mid-to-late 2014.
After the SHIELD fallout, and the completion of the Avengers tower (as briefly shown in Winter Soldier), the Avengers reunite to become an official force in late 2014
*Note: Since Civil War takes place in mid-2018 in my new timeline, the Avengers officially uniting in 2014 fits with General Ross’s Civil War line that the Avengers have been “operating for four years.”
- Avengers: Age of Ultron takes place in early 2015.
In 2016, the Avengers officially started a two-year search for Bucky Barnes and the remaining rogue Hydra agents.
- Doctor Strange ends at some point in 2016.
- Ant-Man takes place in late 2017.
- Captain America: Civil War takes place in mid-2018 (eight years after Iron Man and four years after the Avengers became an official entity).
- Spider-Man Homecoming occurs two months later, in late 2018 (roughly eight years after the Avengers).
- Thor: Ragnarok takes place between mid-2017 and early 2019.
- Black Panther takes place between mid-2018 and early 2019.
- Avengers Infinity War 1 & 2 will take place in mid-2019.
- Spider-Man sequels will presumably take place between 2019 and 2021—2021, the year Peter graduates.
Did you get all of that? Good, because I’m not finished with you yet.
In making this timeline, I’ve stretched some of the years the movies were initially said to take place by Marvel Studios representatives while simultaneously trying to account for all the concrete years that the films themselves have given us. As far as I’m aware, there are no inconsistencies in how I’ve plotted things out— but it’s still not quite the same timeline that we used to have, and there could be some things that I’m missing.
For now, I feel safe saying that Spider-Man Homecoming took place in 2018. Hopefully, Feige will give us an official explanation soon.
Worst case scenario? Doctor Strange screwed up the timeline while fighting Dormammu.
