I’d encourage you to speak to Lebnyx about taking over this thread then since he’s running this timeline. Or you could start your own. I keep my own personal one based on what is here. I have a couple things in different places, but it’s because it’s my own personal taste on things.
I mean, I have my own personal one that I've been building. I would never want to ask to take someone's hard work away from them, I was just putting in my two cents.

If helps a little, i thought that you could base yourself on the real life dates of Fury's Big Week to set What If...? 1x03:
Thursday April 14, 2011
Friday April 15, 2011
Friday May 13, 2011
Saturday May 14, 2011
Sunday May 15, 2011
Wednesday May 25, 2011
Thursday May 26, 2011
Friday May 27, 2011
Saturday May 28, 2011
Sunday May 29, 2011
Monday May 30, 2011
Tuesday May 31, 2011
Wednesday June 1, 2011
Thursday June 2, 2011
Friday June 3, 2011
Saturday June 4, 2011
Sunday June 5, 2011
(Investiganting this i realized that the best name would be Fury's Big Month)

I am aware that the dates of What If ...? don't square with the MCU's or the real ones, but it's all I can do besides watching a Fury's Big Week marathon (I won't do it for now, thanks)

So, the Nexus event of this past episode of What If? more than likely happened between 1996 and 2008.

I'm assuming that the Nexus event of this branch is Fury approaching Hope to join SHIELD. Which I'm also assuming happened somewhere between 1995 and 2008. But without knowing when Fury ACTUALLY became director or when he and Alexander Pierce met, it becomes a bit hard to narrow it down any more than that.

I see what you're saying, but with Loki and now What If? the whole premise of multiple timelines seems to rely on nexus events from the sacred timeline, if I'm wrong, cool, but I think creating a concept of "Well, different timelines can branch off of our timeline and be a new timeline, but also our timeline has multiple universes inside of it, so this person is from one of many universes within the sacred timeline, but this person is from a branch that separated from the sacred timeline because of a nexus event" will get incredibly confusing for a casual audience VERY fast. It seems they want to keep it accessible and that's the concept that What If? is trying to illustrate for us.
Sorry I have been away so not able to respond sooner.

I think my take on this is that the MCU had its sacred timeline and now the branches seen in What If?. The Maguire and Garfield Spider-Men are different universes, not tied in any way to that timeline, they have their own, same for Fox's X-Men and so on. It is only when multiverses collide that they then interact.

We'll definitely see how it plays out. I just can't imagine they would develop an entire show around explaining the multiverse only to disregard those rules, but we'll absolutely see how they decide to play it in December

If we find out then at all, it may take until Doctor Strange or Ant-Man if they really want to stretch it out!

Did you guys know that the "Official timeline" in the Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years book was removed?


I remember that article going around, and I believe it turned out Marvel actually meant this book;
The one mentioned in the Reddit post isn't officially by Marvel, but by Titan.

Does that book actually feature a timeline? I never trusted the first ten years one because like you said, it was by Titan

It releases in October. I've had it pre-ordered for 2 years now, since it's been delayed a couple times now. Any timeline notes that are in there, I'll share here once I receive it.
I'm about to preorder this myself. I had no idea haha.

So I actually just did a re-binge of Loki and for me personally I'm going have it be watched after WandaVision from now on. This Reddit Post visualized every spoken line in the opening of Episode 6 of Loki, and it included lines from all over the MCU, but also all over Earth history. And 'history' is the key to why I'm watching it after WV from now on. They add Vision's Perseverance line to that opening as well as 2 lines from Loki's own show, but there are no lines from FATWS or FFH in there, which if you consider the historical lines, means that FATWS and FFH haven't happened yet but WV has.

Just my opinion on the matter.

I mid-agree with you but that quote was not a flashback?

I had two versions of the timeline
Avengers: Endgame
Loki
What If...?
WandaVision


or

Avengers: Endgame
WandaVision
Loki
What If...?

What do you mean it wasn't a flashback? I prefer your second approach BTW.

Updated with What If...? 1x03. The dates don't match up with the timeline, so I might have to change the arrangement of the events of the movies in Fury's Big Week.

I get what your point is, but I think those lines were simply random, similar to The World Between Worlds in Star Wars: Rebels. It's just a timeless zone where everything exists at once.
