So, where does WandaVision fit in the Marvel timeline? We now have not only a general answer, but a far more specific one, too, thanks to the fourth episode’s dive into MCU present-day shenanigans. Still, it’s a fair question to ask. Given the events of Avengers: Endgame and Avengers: Infinity War combined with time skips and a decade-shifting premise in Wanda’s world of Westview, it can be hard to pinpoint when WandaVision takes place in the MCU. Now, we have an answer. You ready?

When does WandaVision take place in the Marvel timeline?

WandaVision officially takes place in the weeks after Avengers: Endgame. As revealed in the fourth episode, Monica Rambeau was "undusted" after The Blip, and went to work for her agency, SWORD, three weeks after returning. In the interim, her mother (Maria Rambeau, who appeared in Captain Marvel) died in around 2020. That can be quite a lot to keep track of, but it's important to know exactly what happened and when in the increasingly complicated world of the MCU.

For now, let’s keep things simple for the Disney Plus series. TL;DR? WandaVision is one of the ‘latest’ MCU adventures on the timeline, in circa 2023. It’s after Infinity War and after Endgame for sure – though we’ll have to see how the rest of the series and Marvel Phase 4 pans out before we can confidently zero in on its place in terms of chronological order.
