Disney+ Corrects Its MCU Black Widow/Black Panther Timeline Error
Disney+ fixes a mistake in the chronological sequencing of the MCU films on its streaming service - and viewers have noticed.
Disney+ has just made a change to the Marvel Cinematic Universe's timeline on its streaming service.
Previously, the service's "Marvel Cinematic Universe in Timeline Order" option chronologically placed 2018's Black Panther prior to 2021's Black Widow. However, Disney+ has recently reversed the sequence of the two films and now placed Black Widow first.
Both movies take place in the aftermath of 2016's Captain America: Civil War, which saw the alliance of the MCU heroes fractured as its members found themselves on opposing sides of the Sokovia Accords, intended to regulate the activities of superpowered individuals. Both Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow and T'Challa/Black Panther allied themselves with Tony Stark/Iron Man, in support of the accords. Natasha, however, later switched sides in the film, subsequently finding herself on the run after the accords have become law
While both stem from Civil War, the stories of Black Panther and Black Widow are largely independent of one another, and arguably could even take place concurrently. However, the juxtaposition of the two films in the MCU timeline by Disney+ implies an intended chronological order -- one that had apparently been shown incorrectly on the streaming service until recently.
The timeline sequence as currently seen on the streaming service begins with 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger -- taking place starting in 1941 -- and ends with the recent Hawkeye streaming series -- taking place five years after The Blip, in 2024. The MCU timeline is comprised of 27 films and five Disney+ original streaming shows.
The chronological sequencing isn't exact, however, as not all the movies are fully contained within the time frame they're placed in. The epilogue to The First Avenger, for instance, features Steve Rogers/Captain America waking up in present day after decades in suspended animation. And the recent Eternals, while mostly taking place in the present, opens in 5000 BC.
Prior to Civil War, and with the exception of The First Avenger, the MCU timeline essentially paralleled the films' real-time release schedule. However, 2019's Captain Marvel took place in 1995, the events of the subsequent Avengers: Endgame jumped ahead five years, and the expansion of the MCU with the Disney+ streaming series have all made tracking what takes place when more of a challenge. The chronological ordering of the various entries on Disney+ can be interpreted as the definitive sequencing of the dozens of stories making up the continuity of the MCU.

Disney+'s MCU Hub Adds Every Marvel One-Shot
Every Marvel One-Shot is now available on Disney+ after several shorts were added to the streaming service, including Agent Carter and The Consultant.
Every Marvel One-Shot is now available on Disney+.
After several of the shorts were added to the Marvel hub on Disney+, the streaming service now has every Marvel One-Shot available to view. Originally released as DVD extras, primarily during Phase One of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the one-shots include Agent Carter (2013), Team Thor Parts 1 and 2 (2017), Team Darryl (2018), Item 47 (2012), The Consultant (2011) and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Thor's Hammer (2011).
Both the Item 47 and Agent Carter one-shots ultimately led to the creation of both Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter, starring Hayley Atwell, as Marvel Television series. The Consultant stars Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) and serves as an explainer for a continuity error that occurred in 2008's The Incredible Hulk, where Robert Downy Jr.'s Tony Stark is shown as the one who first presented the idea of the Avengers. Gregg also stars in A Funny Thing... where he is shown foiling a gas station robbery while driving to New Mexico to locate Mjolnir.
The Team Thor shorts appeared as extras on the Doctor Strange Blu-ray, which depicted what Chris Hemsworth's God of Thunder was doing in his absence during Captain America: Civil War. The follow-up, Team Darryl, appeared on the Blu-ray for Thor: Ragnorok and featured Jeff Goldblum.
Among the one-shots is All Hail the King, written and directed by Iron Man 3 (2013) co-writer Drew Pearce, which was added early last year as essential viewing ahead of the release of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. The short sees Trevor Slattery (Sir Ben Kingsley) in prison following the events of the third Iron Man film, but is then taken captive by the Ten Rings organization for impersonating their leader, later revealed to be Wenwu (Tony Leung) in Shang-Chi.
While All Hail the King is not a new addition, Agent Carter returns after being removed from Disney+ entirely in September 2021. The short was also included as an extra for Iron Man 3, and would lead to a series of the same name starring Atwell's Peggy Carter. At the time, a reason for its removal from the streaming service was not provided.
Marvel Studios hasn't produced a Marvel One-Shot since Team Darryl, though co-president Louis D'Esposito said in 2018 that Disney wants more one-shots from Marvel, but timing is a major issue. "We're just so busy," he said at the time. "Disney wants us to do it, we want to do it, and I keep telling them, 'I'll do it on the next film,' but I keep breaking my promise."
For now, all seven Marvel One-Shots are available on Disney+.

Marvel's Secret Invasion Is Reportedly Almost Finished Filming
Production continues to progress on Marvel's Secret Invasion, as the upcoming miniseries is nearly finished filming, according to one report.
The Secret Invasion is coming, as production on Marvel's upcoming Secret Invasion miniseries continues to move forward, with one report claiming filming on the show is close to finished.
Although Marvel Studios has yet to confirm exactly how far along filming on Secret Invasion currently is, one industry insider believes that stage of the show's production is almost ready to wrap. "Secret Invasion is almost done filming," insider Charles Murphy tweeted. Though Murphy didn't provide any further details, if his report is accurate, it would appear likely that Secret Invasion will be able to meet its targeted premiere on a yet-to-be-announced date later this year.
Secret Invasion is currently filming in Halifax, England under the working title, "Jambalaya," with Marvel Studios securing access to the town's Piece Hall between Jan. 24 and 31. While the working title is intended to be secretive, fans were able to glean some details about the show when behind-the-scenes images and clips of the production made their way online. The glimpse indicated at least one scene will take place in Russia, as signs for the real-life holiday "National Unity Day" written in Russian were spotted on set.
Staying true to its namesake, not many details are currently known about Secret Invasion, yet fans were able to speculate about the appearance of a certain alien race when the series' revealed its official logo late last year. Though Marvel already confirmed the series will follow the invasion of Earth by the shape-shifting Skrulls, the inclusion of a green and purple color scheme has some fans speculating if the colors on the logo could also suggest an appearance by the Phalanx, a largely unknown villain from the X-Men comics.
The six-episode Secret Invasion miniseries currently lacks a release date, though it is scheduled to premiere on Disney+ sometime later this year.

Marvel Removes 2 Upcoming MCU Shows From 2022 Release Slate

Report: ‘Secret Invasion’ and ‘What If…?’ S2 Included in a Marvel site’s 2022 Release Order
From thecosmiccircus: Update 1/21/22: That Japanese branch of Marvel website has updated their page and they have removed Secret Invasion and What if…? season 2 from the 2022 slate we had first reported to you about in this article. This doesn’t necessarily mean the shows will not drop in 2022, but more likely that they aren’t set in stone for 2022. Either way, we will keep an eye on the situation and report if there are further developments.
From The Marvel Cinematic Universe is in the age of transformation as it welcomes new heroes and villains into the fold. While Phase 4 has already shifted its release dates several times due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many would agree that the anticipation for these projects is still high, especially after the impressive run of Disney+ shows like WandaVision, Loki, and Hawkeye. 
As the MCU welcomes a new calendar year, this development also means that fresh projects are on the horizon for fans to watch.
Phase 4 has changed significantly ever since its original announcement during San Diego Comic-Con 2019. Despite a quiet 2020, Marvel Studios still managed to deliver a new wave of content in 2021, such as its big-screen offerings like Black Widow and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
Given the ever-changing situation of the current health crisis, it remains to be seen if the MCU's 2022 lineup will be altered once again. Now, a new update has emerged that could give fans a clearer picture of what to expect.

No Secret Invasion & What If Season 2 in 2022?

Marvel Japan updated Marvel Studios' 2022 slate on its official website by removing Secret Invasion and What If...? Season 2 from the list. 

As first reported by The Cosmic Circus, the original lineup included the two aforementioned projects alongside a plethora of movies and TV shows. 

Marvel Studios' updated lineup for 2022 can be seen below: 

Moon Knight (March 30, 2022)
Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness (May 6, 2022) 
Thor: Love and Thunder (July 8, 2022) 
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (November 11, 2022)
She-Hulk (TBD)
Marvel (TBD)
I Am Groot (TBD)

Marvel's Still Impressive 2022 Slate 
This latest update from Marvel Japan should serve as a guide for fans who are religiously following the MCU's Phase 4 slate. It remains to be seen if these changes will stick, but many would agree that seeing Secret Invasion and What If...? Season 2 in 2023 could be the best route to go.
It's worth noting that this isn't the first time that an international Marvel branch openly revealed the franchise's ever-changing lineup. In October 2021, Marvel India's official Twitter account accidentally showcased Blade's original release date as October 7, 2022. 
Finding the right balance among many projects is vital, especially since Marvel Studios has an already-stacked slate. Keeping shows like Secret Invasion and What If...? off from its 2022 lineup could strike the right balance among the projects, thus placing the focus on new MCU leads, namely Moon Knight, She-Hulk, and Ms. Marvel.
At this stage, it's reasonable to assume that Secret Invasion and What If...? Season 2 could be slated for the first half of 2023. 
Given that Secret Invasion was rumored to be closely tied to The Marvels, it's possible that the Nick Fury-led show would premiere around January 2023 to boost anticipation for the Captain Marvel sequel's February 2023 release. As for What If...? Season 2, the animated series could be slated after The Marvels, potentially between April-June 2023. 
Whatever the case, many would agree that the MCU still has an impressive slate of projects in 2022 despite the absence of Secret Invasion and What If...?.
