The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Marvel 2016 Opening logoMarvel branched themselves into the movie industry. From 2000 to 2008, the studio independently created films based off memorable characters, with the help of outside film studios, from the comic book universe, like the X-Man (20th Century Fox), Spider-Man (Sony-Columbia), and Blade Trinity series (New Line), each series earing their fair share of praises and critics. After the success of 2008s Iron Man, Disney bought Marvel which help paved the road to one of the greatest franchise that has come to exist, all starting with one simple line during the post credit scene in the first Iron Man, “I'm here to talk to you about The Avenger Initiative”.

At the beginning, there was a major risk starting the Avengers Initiative, most of the character within the group were not as popular as Spider-Man or the X-Men in the late 2000s. Even with the lead actor (Robert Downey Jr playing Tony Stark) known for not having the best reputation and a cast that was not well known in the movie industry, Iron Man was well received in the box office and was the corner stone for remaining movies in Phase 1 of the saga. Avengers Cast

Following Iron Man, The Hulk, Thor, and Captain America each gained their solo movie appearance which lead to 2012s Avengers Assemble, having the team consist of Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and The Hulk (Mark Ruffalo). Now this version of the Avengers has been noted to be very different from the ones of the comics, one of the reasons being that Captain America is not an original founding member of the group, but this was not too harshly judge by most member of the community due to the multiverse theory. With the completion of Avengers and a post credit scene of what the future holds for the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, the phase one of Marvel Cinematic Universe or MCU was completed and gearing up to move on to phase two.
