New MCU chronology book corrects glaring error from ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’

Already after the premiere of “Spider-Man: Homecoming”, fans noticed what a big mistake the creators had made. At the beginning of the film, we use a board to inform you that 8 years have passed since the events of The Avengers and the Battle of New York, when in fact it was less than half a decade. The creators made it clear that they were aware of this error, but it has now been officially corrected in the new book The Marvel Cinematic Universe: An Official Timeline.

From the book we learn that the initial scenes of the film taking place right after the Battle of New York take place in the spring of 2012, while the actual action actually takes place in the fall of 2016. It seems that viewers must simply ignore the board shown in the film.

The book also verifies a line spoken by Adrian Toomes (Michael Keaton), who also mentions eight years.
