What’s on the Men in Black Timeline?
The Men in Black timeline does not have a single dominant chronology outside of the 3 films. It is therefore difficult to develop a chronological list. The comics, though important, only ran for a brief time and the films are more widely known. However, given the popularity of the franchise, it’s likely that we could see the film universe develop into something more substantial.
For now, the three films are the only pieces of media that remain consistent with each other on this timeline, however the comics and the animated series are included anyway, in the best chronological locations, despite being their own chronology.
