Method: GET

Aliases: /api/mcu/timeline

Primary endpoint for the MCU timeline. Sending requests to this endpoint will generate a full list of what's registered in the API. The response you'll get here is a huge json object with each category respectively.

The columns displayed in each category section is much, with a few exceptions, all stored data. This could change over time, but currently, we present data for each category as:

Column nameColumn TypeDescription
mcuidintInternal ID.
cidintCategory ID.
sortorderint

Our internal sort order, mostly used for things in the database that has exact same dates listed or where movie titles may have higher priority than the MCU timeline status.

When it comes to "mcu time", some events in mcu occurance order could also be inaccurate, take place the same year, etc, that forces the sort order to have higher sorting priority.

titlestringMovie or tv series title.
keywordsstringKeywords that usually is searchable.
premieredatetimeRegistered premiere date, like the cinematic release. When dates are unknown or unsure, they will look like 0000-00-00 or 2021-00-00, depending on statistics and information this far.
mcutimestringWhen this title takes place in mcu time count. Not a datetime column as movies may be run over several years and in the same time crosses by other movies.
tvint/booleanIf title belongs to a tv series.
animatedint/booleanIf title is a tv-series and animated.
seasonintSeason number. Titles are also usually marked itself as S0XE0Y so this column could be considered optional.
episodeintEpisode in season. Titles are also usually marked itself as S0XE0Y so this column could be considered optional.
imdbstring

Link to the movie at imdb.com - if this the title is a movie, it points to the movie itself. If the title is a tv-series, this url points to the primary season url.

IMDB data will only be snatched when there is no prior data, so if updates has been made at imdb after the first snatch that data won't be updated.

imdbepisodestringLink to each episode in each season.
distributionstringCompany that produced or distributed the title.
labeltypestringDesign data. Planned.
linksstringIf there are urls of interest, they are probably put here. It is not yet decided if they will be published as json or a comma separated string.
contentinformationlongtext

If not empty, this is a json-string. Compared with the prior mcu-documentation, this is the part where extra information goes.

For example extended information about the title - or which post credit scenes we expect to find. Example from a search for Captain America:

"contentinformation": {
    "Post": [
        "Wanda and Pietro - The Twins - are introduced.",
        "Hydra now has the scepter, a scene that will follow up in Age of Ultron.",
        "Post credits ends with Bucky watching Captain America."
    ],
    "Notes": [
        "On your left.",
        "Alternative Title: 'The Return of The First Avenger."
    ]
},

Post credit scenes are always marked as "Post", and extra notes are separated in "Notes".

imdbcachelongtextA huge block of json data fetched from imdb, with extended information about the title. For the moment, no tv series episodes are included here.
