Captain Marvel TESSERACT Explained! New Marvel Timeline Breakdown!

  • Published on Mar 18, 2019
  • Captain Marvel's changes to the MCU Timeline Explained! How did the Tesseract / Space Stone appear in Captain Marvel, and what does that tell us about the unique way the film fits into the broader Avengers narrative? Erik Voss breaks down the history of the Tesseract, who had it when, and what Nick Fury did with it (and Goose) leading up to Avengers (2012). What was the relationship between Howard Stark and Mar-Vell, and how could the Skrull have been involved? Does Captain Marvel possess the powers of the Space Stone? Does Thanos know Captain Marvel?

    When I first saw this film, I legit thought marvel fucked up on the continuity of where the tessaract was.

    How did the Tesseract end up in Mar-Vell’s ship in space? Last time, Howard Stark found it in the ocean after Red Skull’s defeat on Earth? I’m a little lost.

    Horribly done. If you place the actual year the movies you featured took place instead of the year it was released if would’ve been easier to follow. I had to ignore those in order just follow through the year I could remember they were in

    So it’s Loki’s fault thanos succeeded , he should have just left the tesseract on Asgard when it got destroyed

    What I still don't get is why did the tesseract go through the plane in The First Avenger but didn't go through the lunchbag, nor Fury's desk in Captain Marvel...

    I wanna know why Dr. Strange didn’t use the time stone against Thanos in Infinity War?
    He had plenty of opportunity to utilize it but doesn’t.

    • MAX7hd
      MAX7hd 4 months ago

      In infinity war, Dr. strange uses the time stone to unveil the millions of possible outcomes the war has to offer. Only one had the avengers winning. Therefore, we can only assume that out of the 14 million futures, the result of giving up the time stone was the one he saw successful

    Y'all every woner how all six stones were housed in something, I'm not a comic fan but is there a story to each stone cause they were housed in some kind of way like the mind stone (scepter), soul stone (soul dimension/world), space stone (tesseract cube), power stone (small sphere), reality stone (aether) and time stone (eye of agomotto/necklace)
