11 years! That’s how long the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been around. Since the first appearance of Iron Man on the big screen in 2008, we as audiences have been absolutely blown away by the innovation and imagination created by the visionaries over at Marvel. From Asgard to Midgard, and Hala to Knowhere, these films have taken fans to countless iconic locales and storylines from their favorite Marvel comic series.

Over 20 films. That makes for quite the rewatch headed into the conclusion of the Infinity Saga. It also makes for quite the retrospective on character growth, story telling, and making movie that look and feel like comic books. Join us as we recount the growth and development not only of our favorite characters, but of the Marvel Cinematic Universe itself- from production to distribution to record-breaking blockbusters.

Will our favorites survive Avengers: Endgame? Will the snap be undone? Most importantly, what will come of the MCU in the years to come? We’re in the endgame now, and we can’t wait to see what’s about to happen.


If you are interested in following the Marvel Cinematic Universe, just pick up your favorite Marvel Studios film- Phases 1, 2, and 3 complete the “Infinity Saga,” and you can find these films on DVD, Blu-ray, Netflix, and more.  Plus, Marvel’s library will be available for streaming when the Disney+ platform is launched later this year.
