Yes. In the second-to-last episode of Breaking Bad, Saul stated: "From here on out, I'm Mr. Low Profile -- just another douchebag with a job and three pairs of Dockers. If I'm lucky, a month from now, best-case scenario, I'm managing a Cinnabon in Omaha." The first scene in Better Call Saul is that prediction come true.

At most, Doctor Strange is set over a period of 3 and a half years. Between out-of-universe information and in-universe references, we can safely assume that between the start of the movie and the first end credits scene, no more than 3 and a half years have elapsed. The first thing we need to do is ignore a reference to an experimental armour that we hear ...

Simply put, the story of Fast and Furious is not in the order that the movies are released. A bit of this post is a little speculative since one of the movies is in pre-production, but the cast has already been confirmed. Obviously there are some spoilers below tying it all together. The first movie - The Fast and The Furious (2001), ends with Brian O'...

Firstly, the post-credits scene from X-Men 3 hints at his survival. If for any reason you can't view the video, this is what happens (from the wiki): After the credits there is a scene at the hospital, where the comatose man from the video that Xavier showed his students is lying in a hospital bed. Dr. Moira MacTaggart enters the room to see the ...

There are subtle clues inside the films to establish their individual timeframes, but no concrete evidence that they are connected in any way beyond the actor Clint Eastwood, and any connecting mannerisms he places in the character. Sergio Leone himself said that it was merely a packaging ploy by the American distribution company to link the films. The best ...

UPDATED: Based on recent interviews with Kevin Feige (president of Marvel Studios) and Joe Russo (one of the Infinity Wars directors), it seems safe to assume that the 8 year date was incorrect.

There are no exact dates given for many of these, but there are "good" estimates as to how many years are between works. Wookieepedia has a complete canon history, but this also includes comic and book events as well. There are 10 years between The Phantom Menace & Attack of the Clones. There are 3 years between Attack of the Clones & Revenge of the ...

As Wikipedia says - Prometheus was originally intended as a direct prequel to the 1979 science fiction horror film Alien, set approximately 30 years before the events depicted in the film. While the finished film explored a more stand-alone mythology based upon the race of giant beings discovered by the crew of the Nostromo in Alien, it is, as ...

This might have been taken from the books without the explanation from the books included in the movie. In the books, Orodruin/Mount Doom is spewing out ash and smoke as Sauron starts the War of the Ring, since he commands the fires of the mountain. The smoke forms a canopy that extends outwards from Mordor and blocks out the sun from the lands around it. ...

If I understand your question(s) correctly, Vincent Vega, played by John Travolta, is probably the closest character to tying all of the events and characters together as most of the events involve him. If you were to take all of the events and re-arrange them so that they were in chronological order then it would be as follows... Vincent and Jules drive ...

As you already know that the Chronology of Fast & Furious franchise is different from the release order but the reason for it is more complex than the chronology. Tokyo Drift has nothing to do with the first two films. Diesel was hoping to make more films in the Riddick franchise of sci-fi action pictures. To do that, though, he needed to get the rights ...

At the end of Fast 6 they show the same clip from Han dieing in Tokyo Drift, but you see Jason Statham get out of the car that hit Han's. So seven will take place with Dom going to Tokyo (assuming) since he shows up in the end of Tokyo drift

Pulling from the The Comic Board Forum (and from IM3), we know that: December 31, 1999, Tony Stark learns about Extremis from Maya Hansen.

Except for maybe Guardians of the Galaxy, which stands alone from most of the movies, Captain America: The First Avenger which time skips at the end and the Defenders Netflix series which tend to be very separate from the cinematic features, the movies are very very event specific. It is best to view them in release order. There is little if any jumping ...

If you watch the movie The Wolverine until the end then you can see that Wolverine meets Prof. Xavier and Magneto at the airport and they ask to regroup.
