Joe Russo Confirms the 8-Year Time Jump in SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING was Wrong
I completely missed it, but there was a boo-boo made in Spider-Man: Homecoming. After Michael Keaton and his team are fired from cleaning up the Battle of New York from The Avengers, the film says there’s an 8-year jump in time. That sounds pretty reasonable to me, so I continued watching the film without a second thought. However, the MCU takes place in real-time, so it had really only been about 5 years. Oops!
This error was confirmed by Joe Russo in a recent interview. During the interview, he is asked about the time gap and responds, “Yes, it was a very incorrect eight years.” The interview is all done in good humor as Russo and executive producer Trinh Tran are asked random questions about the MCU including the Wi-Fi password in Doctor Strange. The interview ends with Russo joking that everyone dies in Avengers: Infinity War and that Avengers 4 has been canceled. Did you pick up that the time jump was incorrect?
