Will you include the Once Apon A Deadpool fred savage scenes? The movie is technically an in-universe retelling of deadpool 2, edited to be pg 13.
I don't know. Those seem to exist for meta reasons and most likely aren't intended to be canon.

Also, I still have to update so much for The Gifted in the timeline, but it's been a massive, dull drag for me personally...

I agree on that. Legion is so much better than the gifted.

One neat thing: Dark Phoenix has an event in Red Hook. Legion mentions something happing in Red Hook. I'd imagine it's a coincidence as in Legion mutants aren't well known but in Dark Phoenix, the X-Men are a well known team. So... unless Xavier wipes the worlds memory... they stay seperate.

Still, I'd view all of these in the order of:
X-Men: First Class - The High Hand
X-Men: First Class
X-Men Origins: Wolverine
X-Men

X-Men 2: Wolverine
X-Men 2: Nightcrawler
X2: X-Men United

X-Men: The Last Stand
The Wolverine: Unleashed Extended Edition
The Gifted
1x01: eXposed
The Gifted 1x02: rX
The Gifted 1x03: eXodus
The Gifted 1x04: eXit strategy
The Gifted 1x05: boXed in
The Gifted 1x06: got your siX
The Gifted 1x07: eXtreme measures
The Gifted 1x08: threat of eXtinction
The Gifted 1x09: outfoX
The Gifted 1x10: eXploited
The Gifted 1x11: 3 X 1
The Gifted 1x12: eXtraction
The Gifted 1x13: X-roads

Trask Industries: Your Future
The Bent Bullet: JFK and the Mutant Conspiracy
25 Moments in the Struggle between X-Men and Humans

The Gifted 2x01: eMergence
The Gifted 2x02: unMoored
The Gifted 2x03: coMplications
The Gifted 2x04: outMatched

The Gifted 2x10: eneMy of My eneMy

The Gifted 2x12: hoMe
The Gifted 2x13: teMpted

Logan

I get it. 40 year old Ryan Reynolds playing 70 year old Wade Wilson but... 40 year old James McAvoy playing 60 year old Professor X. Sure, Colossus looks bigger than he does, even in 2023 (revised timeline) and has a Russian voice but I assume he just chooses to be in his metal form. Since Colossus was born after 1973 (1986), his voice could be a slight alteration in his DNA. Obviously this is grasping at straws but, hey! It has to be 2014-2016 and 2018 because of Firefists age.

On the topic of tv, i doubt The Gifted is considered canon. The idea that it branched out from Days of Future Past makes me think the flashbacks before 1973 are canon but the main portion of the series is unfortunately non-canon and happens in the same universe up until wolverine travels to the past. He probably did something else during X-Men: Days of Future Past that drastically changed from the revised timeline, Earth-TRN414 (temporary number).

Legion is a complicated issue as well, but the assurance its in the X-Men Universe was either a marketing ploy or just partially true. People state that something is apart of the marvel universe even if it doesn't take place in Earth-616. That being said, i have no idea if it took place in the X-Men Movie Universe at some point then diverged. It's fine where it is in my opinion.

I've changed my mind on the gifted, since it clearly belongs to a timeline "similar" to the original/revised. I'm still trying to find out which is more likely. I'm thinking a timeline closer to the original as you've done or a third timeline thats the revised timeline without any of the events of Logan and 2023 in it. My guess is they don't want to step on anyone's shoes so they make it so they aren't aligned with any timeline completely and have flexibility. I mean, the fact they say Deadpool is canon but the gifted isn't (sort of) annoys me a little.

On reddit someone pointed out a reference to a robot disaster that makes it easier to sympathise with mutants. That would be a reference to Days of Future Past's... past right? I can't confirm it but I'll probably re-watch the gifted again in a couple months.

The problem with that is that the X-Men left then came back between 2017-2023 then died in 2028. That's possible, sure but the fact that mutants are still being born put that at jeopardy.

It works well in the original timeline with the X-men going into hiding since they know what's up. Nothing really to add other than maybe Blink looking different, but... people age.

Legion is getting Pro. X in season 3. It's not an actor from the movies but it is what it is.

According to the Director of X-Men: Apocalypse, X-Men: Days of Future Past - The Rogue Cut is non-canon unfortunately.

Can't help with the timeline, but thanks for the additional material for my own Viewing Order.

Edit: Trask Industries is in 2017 based on X-Men Movies: Wiki's timeline for when Task Industries came to be.

Edit: The Bent Bullet is at least 2013 based on the half a century comment.

Edit: 25 Moments ends in 2001 so that's where I put it.

Edit: I don't count Deleted Scenes.

Edit: I don't think X-Men Apocalypse's promotional material is canon.

My viewing order perspective:

Can anyone explain to me placement reasoning for Origins? I swear I saw other timelines that stated Logan left his team in 1979 and then the film jumps 6 years to 1985.

Unless we see or hear about William Stryker in Dark Phoenix, I feel like including that deleted scene from Apocalypse where he's convicted of his crimes by Moria and arrested. Since this universe is ending, Stryker is the only loose thread in the "Revised" timeline and the deleted scene gives proper closure.

We'll see though. The trailer for Dark Phoenix that was just released in the past couple hours showed mutant containment soldiers on train, so perhaps Stryker may be involved somehow?

The original timeline has bigger month sizes than the revised.
1986 has two ???? months right next to each other, instead of a single ????.
You have missed a ???? for the month in 2006.

You have blank space
July 15

????

2014
????

2015

The Wolverine: Unleashed Extended Edition Chapter 36 (2:09:17 - 2:11:19)

2016

The Gifted is unfinished but I don't blame you there.

When you can, I'd like to see reasoning for Origins placement. Everywhere else I have seen has it ending in the mid to late 80s.

Just going by, looking at the gifted and BAM https://www.digitalspy.com/tv/ustv/a26345296/the-gifted-x-men-spin-off-update/
While there's been no confirmation on The Gifted's future either way, Nix is still thinking ahead to its potential third season, confirming that he's "developing stuff" at the moment and adding that the series "would be informed by the ideas in Days of Future Past".

Ok. I don't really ca- wait, Days of Future Past? Well how about that? They gonna go dystopian!?

So is https://xmenmovies.fandom.com/wiki/Blink the same as https://thegifted.fandom.com/wiki/Blink?

I would add the DoFP promos in 2017, because in Trask Industries: Your Future, it's their 50 year anniversary.
