  • The book does not cover the MCU TV shows made by Marvel Television nor the MCU Red Stamped comics released by Marvel Comics.
    • In his foreword, Kevin Feige mentioned that, at the time, the book just covered what Marvel Studios considered as a part of their Sacred Timeline. Ahead of the release of Echo, Brad Winderbaum stated that Marvel Studios had been "a little bit cagey" about what was part of their Sacred Timeline adding that as time had passed and Marvel Studios had begun to see how "well integrated the [Marvel Television] stories are" he felt confident in saying the events of The Defenders Saga were part of their Sacred Timeline.[2] Subsequently, all of the Netflix series were added to the MCU Disney+ Timeline.
  • On page 119, the top-right blurb mistakenly labels Wanda Maximoff as Natasha Romanoff.
  • On page 285, the top-left blurb mistakenly labels Maximoff’s children as “Bobby and Billy” when their names are canonically “Tommy and Billy”.
