Well in X1 Charles says it's been 15 years since Logan lost his memory and in X2 Stryker said "how long has it been 15 years?"

Logan lost his memories in 1979 so 5 years from 1979 is 1994.

This timeline makes no sense.

There's no way in hell that the mid-90s constitutes "the not-too-distant future".

Not only that, everything we currently know about DoFP points to its events taking place in 1973, 2013, and 2023, which really doesn't match up with this timeline.

It was 'not too distant future' from the previous scene... 'Poland 1944'

It may not be the 90s, thats just going by dialogue and Origins date of Logan losing his memory.

The original trilogy has no official date

You don't release a film in 2000, have 'the not too distant future' on the screen and intend said scene to take place in 1994. It doesn't even make the slightest bit of sense in terms of narrative.

If they meant 'the not too distant future from 1944' and intend it to take place in 1994, they'd say 1994.

I'll remove the 1994 then. Guess we won't know the official dates of the OT until after DOFP

Right now, it doesn't, but if the present of DoFP is set in 2013, TLS will be retroactively confirmed to be set in 2003, which is a year that can be expanded to include X1 and X2 as well since there really doesn't seem to have been a significant amount of time passing between the three films.

The Wolverine should be around 2011 then since the mid-credits scene is two years before het meets Magneto & Xavier again.

Default Re: X-MEN Movie-Verse Timeline

The Wolverine takes place AT LEAST 1-3 years after The Last Stand. If TLS takes place in 2003, that gives us a period of at least 2004-2006 for The Wolverine (including the mid-credits scene), and there's nothing to suggest that there's not some passage of time between that scene and the present of DoFP. In fact, things we know suggest that there IS a significant passage of time between that scene and the present of DoFP.

Also, Stryker is going to be a 27-year-old in DoFP, so it is looking like XMO is being wiped from continuity.

^ Not sure where you got the character's age from or what led you to the conclusion that his age wipes Origins: Wolverine from continuity.

Going by the actors age, but okay he may not necessarily have to play his age, he can be in his early 30s. But even then he's still going to be younger than Danny Huston, and most likely actually have a southern accent.

^ The age of an actor means diddly sqatt. Unless it's been specifically said that Stryker's only 27 in this movie, there are zero legit conclusions that can be drawn from Helman's casting insofar as continuity and the timeline are concerned.

I know, that's why I said in my post "he may not necessarily have to play his age, he can be in his early 30s."

I figured I'd share the two timeline breakdowns I've worked out based on what we've been shown in X1, X2, TLS, FC, and TW, the two possible year settings for O:W, and what we currently know about DoFP:
Possible Timeline #1
1845, c. 1860s, 1917, 1973 - Prologue of O:W
1944 - Prologues of X1 and FC
1945 - Prologue of TW
1962 - FC
1973 - 'Past' portions of DoFP
1979 - O:W
1983, 1993 - Prologue of TLS
2003 - X1, X2, and TLS
c. 2004 - TW
c. 2006 - Epilogue of TW
2013 - 'Present' portions of DoFP
2023 - 'Future' portions of DoFP

Possible Timeline #2
1845, c. 1860s, 1917, 1975 - Prologue of O:W
1944 - Prologues of X1 and FC
1945 - Prologue of TW
1962 - FC
1973 - 'Past' portions of DoFP
1981 - O:W
1983, 1993 - Prologue of TLS
2003 - X1, X2, and TLS
c. 2004 - TW
c. 2006 - Epilogue of TW
2013 - 'Present' portions of DoFP
2023 - 'Future' portions of DoFP

^ What makes you say Origins takes place in either 1979 or 1981? The Three Mile Island accident? In that case, what makes you say 1981? In X1, Xavier said that it had been nearly 15 years since Logan had lost his memory, and in X2 this point was reiterated by Stryker when he said he hadn't seen Logan in 15 years.

So, wouldn't it make more sense to assume that Origins took place in 1988?

^ I honestly view those bits of dialogue as having been retconned by subsequent films.

The Three Mile Island accident did inform the 1979 date for O:W, but the 1981 date is informed by/drawn from the Wikipedia article on the film, which gives a date for the Vietnam War portion of the film as 1975 and states that the bulk of the film's remaining events take place 6 years later, giving us a date of 1981.

Was it the incident though? Stryker could have set up shop there after the incident, knowing one is going to be snooping around there. Plus you know, the Three Mile Island incident didn't involve a cooler tower collapse.

Would Stryker be able to set up a mutant prison and experimentation lab alongside an operational nuclear power station? I doubt it. Seems more likely he set up there after the Three Mile Island incident made the island a no-go area. If so, that makes the end of Origins some years after 1979.

Agreed. Also, doesn't Gambit make a comment about it being easy to set up shop on Three Mile Island because of the fear of radiation exposure?

Making Stryker a Mutant would be great. He openly hates Mutants and tries to supress them. It'd be a metaphor for hating a part of himself. Like a self hating Jew

Plus his son is a mutant and the X-Gene is hereditery right?
