Which earth is Marvel Cinematic Universe belongs too? I remember in Thor: The Dark World it was referred to as 616 by Erik Selvig:

But I remember lots of sources claiming it to be Earth-199999, even few stating it to be official, even lots of fandoms still call it that. But again in Mysterio called it 616 who is not really a reliable narrator.

So who is right? Which earth is the Marvel Cinematic Universe?


Earth-616 is the main Marvel comics universe (Earth Prime).

Earth-199999 is the Marvel cinematic universe (MCU).

    @AnkitSharma Maybe in universe they call it 616, but in other universes it’s 199999? – DonielF Dec 22 '19 at 4:21
  • @DonielF that make it more weird if true – Ankit Sharma Dec 22 '19 at 7:58
