Spider-Man: Homecoming's time jump was "incorrect", says Infinity War director Joe Russo

Joe Russo has said the Spider-Man: Homecoming time jump was “incorrect”.

The director, who will helm the forthcoming Avengers: Infinity War alongside his brother Anthony, has said the “eight years later” time jump in the first Sony/Marvel outing is just plain wrong.

In layman’s terms, Spider-Man: Homecoming was set in 2017, and supposedly picked up after the events of Captain America: Civil War.

Nonetheless, title-cards and dialogue in the movie also confirm it is set a full eight years after the original Avengers film, which totally contradicts itself, right?

It’s thought by many fans that this time jump is a clear break in the Marvel timeline, although this has previously been denied by Marvel boss Kevin Feige.

And in a recent interview, Russo has confirmed his belief that this is simply a blunder.

“It was eight years, I believe,” Russo told Ashish Chanchlani. “It was a very incorrect eight years.”

Avengers: Infinity War will be released later this week in the UK and next week in the US.

The film will be the third of four instalments focused around the current iteration of Marvel’s Avengers, with the MCU in store for a huge reset following the release of the final Avengers movie in 2019.

Avengers: Infinity War is release on April 27 in the UK and May 4 in the US. Book tickets now.
