Introduction

The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is an American media franchise and shared universe that is centered on a series of superhero films, independently produced by Marvel Studios and based on characters that appear in publications by Marvel Comics. The franchise has expanded to include comic books, short films, television series, and digital series. The shared universe, much like the original Marvel Universe in comic books, was established by crossing over common plot elements, settings, cast, and characters. Phil Coulson, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., appears in each entry of the MCU.

The first film in the MCU was Iron Man (2008), which was distributed by Paramount Pictures. Paramount also distributed Iron Man 2 (2010), Thor (2011), Captain America: The First Avenger (2011), and The Avengers (2012). Disney’s Marvel Studios took over production for Iron Man 3 (2013), Thor: The Dark World (2013), Captain America: The Winter Soldier (2014), Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015), Ant-Man (2015), Captain America: Civil War (2016), Doctor Strange (2016), Spider-Man: Homecoming(2017), Thor: Ragnarok(2017), Black Panther(2018), Avengers: Infinity War(2018) ,Captain Marvel(2019)and Spider-Man: Far From Home(2019).

The films are written and directed by a variety of individuals and feature large, often ensemble casts. Many of the actors signed contracts to star in multiple films as their character as part of an interlocking movie universe; this allows different storylines from different filmmakers to come together into one shared universe without loosing viewership from any single Stand alone film . As of July 2019, 10 Phase One films have been released, while Phase Two consists of eight films; a ninth film from Phase Two will conclude it . The first two phases have grossed over $10 billion worldwide; three more phases are planned to complete the Infinity Saga .
