When is Hawkeye on the Marvel Timeline? As it turns out, it’s easy enough to pin down when Clint Barton’s first solo adventure falls into the Marvel chronology, especially compared to the multi-faceted adventures of Loki or What If…?
Thanks to the series’ “Christmas Theme” and a special quote from director Rhys Thomas, we can reduce Hawkeye’s time period to practically weeks. We explain everything here, and you don’t have to worry—the following is completely spoiler-free.
When is Hawkeye on the Marvel Timeline?
It’s hard to remember that Hawkeye is set on Christmas with all the festive decorations and crap about the season, but what holiday period are we talking about here?
“We are two years after the events of Endgame,” Thomas, who shares directing duties with Burt & Bertie, told GamesRadar+.
Avengers: Endgame spans from 2018 to 2023, so theoretically a two-year jump should take us to 2025 – except it’s more likely Hawkeye is set on the holidays of 2024, given that no other MCU project’ Not after 24. Distant. That means we’re just two years away from Endgame.
The first episode starts a few days before Christmas, so it’s clear that Hawkeye is set in the final week of 2024. This puts it in the same year as Spider-Man: Far From Home and the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home. , To put Hawkeye in perspective more tightly, here’s a chronological order of recent Marvel releases:
- Avengers: Endgame (2018-2023)
- WandaVision (2023)
- Loki (as in 2023, as in 2012)
- Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2023)
- The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (2023/2024)
- Eternal (2023/2024)
- Spider-Man: Far From Home (2024)
- Spider-Man: No Way Home (2024)
- Hawkeye (2024)
Depending on where Hawkeye ends, we could finally get to the MCU by 2025 — but that remains to be seen once all six episodes of Disney Plus hit.
Next on Marvel’s release slate is No Way Home, which hits US theaters on December 17th, and in UK cinemas a little earlier this December 15th.
