A Dream Job at Marvel Studios You Never Knew You Wanted

It's not like they're recruiting, though.

What is your dream job? An astronaut, a doctor, a writer, an actor, or maybe a firefighter? We beg to differ. If you are a superhero fan, chances are your dream job is… an official MCU timeline keeper.

First of all, that does sound like a mysterious and otherworldly title, doesn't it? Secondly, it still exists in real life despite that. We're not joking – there is an actual job like that in Marvel Studios.

As learned by The Direct, Marvel has hired a specific person to keep track of the complicated MCU timeline, so that every new project adheres to the continuity and doesn't ruin things that are already canon while creating something new.

The fact that such jobs exists within Marvel was confirmed by head writer for 'She-Hulk', Jessica Gao.

"It's definitely after– post-Endgame. There actually is a Marvel person whose job it is to trace the timeline of everything. And we checked with him a lot about where the timing is. And so it's like… the show is a few years after Endgame," she told The Direct.

In fact, there is a large physical timeline at Marvel that covers pretty much everything at the beginning of time. One of the producers who worked for Jon Watts (the director of 'Spider-Man: Homecoming'), Eric Carroll, was the one who had the job previously.

In 2017, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige even promised that the official timeline will be made public at some point so that every timeline dispute can be resolved by addressing a canon document. However, five years later, such a timeline is still to be released.

If you are already eager to apply for the job, we will unfortunately have to disappoint you. It's unclear whether such a vacancy will be open, as it is unknown who has the position now and what exactly do they do in order to, you know, keep the timeline.

But now that the MCU is heading into the Multiverse Saga that envisages multiple universes and alternate timeline, this job is becoming even more important than ever, as it is getting increasingly more difficult to keep track of the course of events.
