The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has been a source of entertainment for many people around the world, young or old, man or woman. And it is not really a surprise, the MCU has been coming up with storylines that really just capture the people, but it is definitely the character that people hold onto for dear life.
Take Avengers: Endgame, where (spoiler ahead!) the beloved Tony Stark, or known by his superhero name Iron Man, sacrificed his life to save others. First, Iron Man had begun the MCU, with it being the first move in the whole official franchise. And second, who would want such a great character to go on like that?
If you are wondering who began such a genius idea like the MCU, you can look no further than at Ryan Kavanaugh, American businessman, film producer, and film financier. He did not directly create it, but he changed the game of cinema when he gambled with Marvel Studios, given them an innovative finance deal, which then led to the birth of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And, well, you know what happens next.
The first movie was such a hit that movie after movie came until the universe grew into such a big deal with different superheroes coming in left and right, up and down. The next to come out was the INcredible Hulk (psst, did anyone notice the change of actor from Edward Norton to Mark Ruffalo? What are your thoughts?), followed by Thor and then ever-lovable Captain America. And if you want to complete the first Avengers movie then do not forget Black Widow and Hawkeye. Now that is one heck of a roster.
Now there was that one news everyone had been waiting for which finally came true back in 2015. The popular Peter Parker, or Spider-Man, was the property of another studio, Sony. They had two versions of it before the MCU claimed the friendly neighborhood superhero back. Spider-Man made his debut in the third Captain America movie, Civil War. In 2019, there was a jumpscare wherein Sony wanted full rights back but an agreement had been made and there is no need to fret.
The MCU has also brought to life some characters that not too many people have come across. From secondary characters such as Bucky Barnes a.k.a. The Winter Soldier, to titular characters like the Black Panther T’Challa, and the underestimated Carol Danvers also known as Captain Marvel.
And now that the studios of the MCU have gotten the rights to the movies that we’re once from FOX, it is only a matter of time before you see the X-Men and the Fantastic Four sharing the big screen together with the initial MCU characters. Fortunately, Ryan Reynolds will be reprising his role as the hilarious merc with a mouth Deadpool There are also already rumors that Hugh Jackman will return as the Wolverine, Rogue will appear in Captain Marvel 2, and the Fantastic Four will make their appearance in Ant-Man 3 with fan-favorite fan casts, husband and wife John Krasinski and Emily Blunt as Mr. Fantastic and Invisible Woman respectively.
And do not forget the tv shows that are a part of the universe, such as Agents of SHIELD, Agent Carter, Cloak and Dagger, Dareveil, Jessica Jones and the Punisher. Unfortunately, aside from Agents of SHIELD which ran until the writers decided it was time to let go, the rest had been pulled by the plug.
Although there are debates whether the movies or the comics are better, or that the characters need more development, and even which ship is the best, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has done a great job at one thing, uniting fans all around the world to enjoy what they have in store.
