The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) films are a series of American superhero films produced by Marvel Studios based on characters that appear in publications by Marvel Comics. The MCU is the shared universe in which all of the films are set. The films have been in production since 2007, and in that time Marvel Studios has produced and released 23 films, with at least eight more in various stages of development. It is the highest-grossing film franchise of all time, having grossed over $22.5 billion at the global box office. This includes Avengers: Endgame, which is the highest-grossing film of all time.

Kevin Feige has produced every film in the series, alongside Avi Arad for the first two releases, Gale Anne Hurd for The Incredible Hulk, Amy Pascal for the Spider-Man films, and Stephen Broussard for Ant-Man and the Wasp. The films are written and directed by a variety of individuals and feature large, often ensemble, casts. Many of the actors, including Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, and Jeremy Renner signed contracts to star in numerous films.

Marvel Studios releases its films in groups called "Phases".[1][2] Their first film is Iron Man (2008), which was distributed by Paramount Pictures. Paramount also distributed Iron Man 2 (2010), Thor (2011) and Captain America: The First Avenger (2011), while Universal Pictures distributed The Incredible Hulk (2008).

Captain America: Civil War (2016) is the first film of Phase Three, and is followed by Doctor Strange (2016), Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017), Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017), Thor: Ragnarok (2017), Black Panther (2018), Avengers: Infinity War (2018), Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018), Captain Marvel (2019), Avengers: Endgame (2019), and Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019).[2] The first three phases are collectively known as "The Infinity Saga". The Spider-Man films are owned, financed, and distributed by Sony Pictures.

Phase Four will include Black Widow (2020), The Eternals (2020), Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021), Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2021), and Thor: Love and Thunder (2021).

Iron Man (2008)

Avi Arad, who helped secure early financing,[21] produced Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk.

Billionaire industrialist Tony Stark builds himself a suit of armor after he is taken captive by a terrorist organization. Free from his captors, he decides to upgrade and don his armor in order to hunt down weapons that were sold under the table.[22]

In April 2006, Marvel hired Jon Favreau to direct Iron Man,[10] with the writing teams of Art Marcum and Matt Holloway and Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby writing competing scripts.[10][23] Favreau consolidated both into one script, which was then polished by John August.[11]Robert Downey, Jr. was cast in the title role in September 2006, after growing out a goatee and working out to convince the filmmakers he was right for the part.[24]Principal photography began on March 12, 2007,[25] with the first few weeks spent on Stark's captivity in Afghanistan,[26] which was filmed in Inyo County, California.[27] Production also occurred on the former Hughes Company soundstages in Playa Vista, Los Angeles, California,[28] with additional filming at Edwards Air Force Base[29] and Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada.[30]Iron Man premiered at the Greater Union theater in George Street, Sydney, on April 14, 2008,[31] and was released internationally on April 30, and in the United States on May 2.[32][33]

The film ends with a post-credits scene featuring Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, who approaches Stark regarding the "Avenger Initiative". Favreau said that he included the scene as "a little tip of the hat for the fans...a way to sort of tee up The Avengers." Jackson was only on set for a day, with a skeleton crew to avoid the news of his cameo leaking.[34]Captain America's shield is also visible in the background of a scene; it was added by an ILM artist as a joke, and Favreau decided to leave it in the film.[35]

The Incredible Hulk (2008)

After being exposed to gamma radiation that causes him to transform into the monstrous Hulk, scientist Bruce Banner goes on the run and isolates himself from his love, Betty Ross. Hunted by the military, Banner seeks to cure himself and prevent his condition from being weaponized.[36]

In January 2006,[37] Marvel reclaimed the film rights for the Hulk character from Universal Pictures after Universal failed to meet a deadline to develop a sequel to director Ang Lee's 2003 film Hulk.[38] Universal retained distribution rights for future Hulk films.[38] Instead of moving forward with a sequel, Marvel hired Louis Leterrier to direct The Incredible Hulk, a reboot.[12] Leterrier initially turned down the job out of respect for Lee, but later reconsidered and signed on.[12] The script was written by Zak Penn, who drafted a treatment for the 2003 film.[39] In April 2006, Edward Norton entered negotiations to portray Bruce Banner and rewrite Penn's script,[40] although Penn received sole credit for the screenplay.[13] Production began on July 9, 2007 and filming primarily took place in Toronto,[41] with additional filming in New York City and Rio de Janeiro.[42] The film premiered at the Gibson Amphitheatre on June 8, 2008, and was released on June 13.[43][44]

The film takes place simultaneously with the events of Iron Man 2 and Thor,[45] the former of which is set six months after the events of Iron Man.[46] Downey briefly reprised his role from Iron Man as Tony Stark in a cameo appearance at the end of the film. Downey said that the filmmakers "were just cross-pollinating our superheroes. It happens to be a scene where I basically approach [actor William Hurt's character General Ross], and we may be considering going into some sort of limited partnership together. The great thing is he--and I don't want to give too much away--but he's in disrepair at the time I find him. It was really fun seeing him play this really powerful character who's half in the bag."[47] In addition, Captain America is briefly seen frozen in ice in an alternate opening of the film, included in the DVD release.[48]

Iron Man 2 (2010)

Jon Favreau, the director of Iron Man and Iron Man 2, helped establish the shared universe concept with his inclusion of Samuel L. Jackson in a post-credits scene of the first film.

After Tony Stark reveals himself to be Iron Man, the U.S. government demands he hand over his technology. Meanwhile, a rival industrialist and a Russian scientist conspire to use his own technology against him.[49]

Immediately following the successful release of Iron Man in May 2008, Marvel Studios announced it was developing a sequel, Iron Man 2.[50] Favreau returned as director[14] and Justin Theroux was hired to write the screenplay, which would be based on an original story by Favreau and Downey.[15] In October 2008, Downey signed a new four-picture deal, that retroactively included the first film, to reprise his role and Don Cheadle was hired to replace Terrence Howard as James Rhodes.[51][52] Jackson signed on to reprise his role as Nick Fury from the Iron Man post-credits sequence in up to nine films,[53] and Scarlett Johansson was cast as the Black Widow, as part of a multi-film commitment.[54] Principal photography began April 6, 2009,[55] at the Pasadena Masonic Temple in Pasadena, California.[56] The majority of filming took place at Raleigh Studios in Manhattan Beach, California.[57] Other locations included Edwards Air Force Base,[58]Monaco,[59] and the Sepulveda Dam.[57]Iron Man 2 premiered at the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles, California on April 26, 2010,[60] and was released internationally between April 28 and May 7 before releasing in the United States on May 7.[61]

The film is set six months after the events of Iron Man,[46] and takes place simultaneously with the events of The Incredible Hulk and Thor.[45] The filmmakers continued to refer to other Marvel films by again including Captain America's shield. Favreau explained, "We introduced Captain America's shield briefly in one shot in the last film. So now it really was in his room, so we had to figure out how to deal with the reality that the shield was in his workshop."[35] A scene toward the end of Iron Man 2 in a S.H.I.E.L.D. safe house contains several Easter eggs, ranging from footage from The Incredible Hulk displayed on a monitor to pointers on a map indicating several locales related to other Marvel films, including one pointing toward a region of Africa in reference to the Black Panther.[62] A young Peter Parker appears as the child wearing an Iron Man mask whom Stark saves from a drone; the appearance was confirmed in June 2017 by Spider-Man actor Tom Holland, Kevin Feige and Spider-Man: Homecoming director Jon Watts.[63][64] The film's post-credits scene shows the discovery of Thor's hammer in a crater.[65]

Thor (2011)

Thor, crown prince of Asgard, is banished to Earth and stripped of his powers after he reignites a dormant war. As his brother, Loki, plots to take the throne for himself, Thor must prove himself worthy and reclaim his hammer Mjölnir.[66]

Mark Protosevich was hired to develop a script for Thor in April 2006, after the rights were acquired from Sony Pictures.[10] In August 2007 Marvel hired Matthew Vaughn to direct the film,[67] however he exited the project in May 2008.[68] In September 2008, Kenneth Branagh entered into negotiations to replace Vaughn.[16] In May 2009, Chris Hemsworth was in negotiations to portray the titular character,[69] and Tom Hiddleston was set to play his brother, Loki.[70] Both actors were contracted to star in several films.[71] Marvel hired the writing team of Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stentz to write a new script for the film, which was then rewritten by Don Payne.[17] Production began on January 11, 2010 in Los Angeles, California,[72] before moving to Galisteo, New Mexico in March.[73]Thor had its world premiere on April 17, 2011 at the Event Cinemas theater in George Street, Sydney[74] and a U.S. premiere on May 2 at the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles, California.[75] The film was released internationally from April 21 to 30, and on May 6 in the United States.[76]

The film takes place simultaneously with the events of The Incredible Hulk and Iron Man 2,[45] the latter of which is set six months after the events of Iron Man.[46]Clark Gregg, who appeared in Iron Man and Iron Man 2 as S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Phil Coulson, reprised the role in Thor. About his role in Thor he stated, "Agent Coulson was one of the guys who wasn't really in the comic books, and he [had] a very kind of small role in Iron Man. And I was just very lucky that they chose to expand that character and [chose] to put him more into the universe of it."[77] After signing on to appear as Clint Barton / Hawkeye in The Avengers, Jeremy Renner made a cameo appearance as the character during a scene in Thor.[78] Branagh said that they "were always going to have a guy in a basket above the action where Thor breaks in the S.H.I.E.L.D. camp", and that he was thrilled when the producers told him they wanted to use Renner's Hawkeye for that role.[79] The film ends with a post-credits scene featuring Loki, watching as Erik Selvig and Nick Fury discuss the Tesseract.[80] The scene was directed by Joss Whedon, who directed The Avengers.[81]Stellan Skarsgård, who plays Selvig, said the scene was not included when he first read the screenplay for Thor, and that he was sent pages for the scene after agreeing to appear in The Avengers.[82]

Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)

In 1942, Steve Rogers is deemed physically unfit to enlist in the U.S. Army and fight the German Reich in World War II. Recruited for a secret military operation, he is physically transformed into a super-soldier dubbed Captain America and must battle the Red Skull, head of a Nazi science division known as Hydra.[83]

In April 2006, Marvel hired David Self to write the script for a Captain America film.[10]Joe Johnston signed on to direct in November 2008,[18] and Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely were hired to rewrite the script.[19] In March 2010, Chris Evans was cast as Captain America and Hugo Weaving was cast as the Red Skull.[84] Production began on June 28, 2010 in the United Kingdom,[85] with locations in London,[86]Caerwent,[87]Manchester and Liverpool.[88] The film premiered on July 19, 2011, at the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles, California,[89] and was released in the United States on July 22, and in international markets starting July 27.[90]

The Tesseract from the Thor post-credits scene appears as a MacGuffin in Captain America: The First Avenger.[91] In the film, Dominic Cooper portrays a young Howard Stark, the father of Tony Stark,[92] who hosts an early version of the Stark Expo, the fair Tony hosts in Iron Man 2.[93] The final scene of the film includes a brief appearance by Jackson's Nick Fury followed by a teaser trailer for Marvel's The Avengers after the credits.[94]

Marvel's The Avengers (2012)

Nick Fury, the director of S.H.I.E.L.D., gathers the superheroes Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, the Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye to fight Thor's brother Loki, who plots to subjugate the Earth.[95]

Zak Penn, who wrote The Incredible Hulk, was hired to write a script for The Avengers in June 2007.[96] In April 2010, Joss Whedon closed a deal to direct the film, and to rework Penn's script.[20] Marvel announced that Edward Norton would not be reprising the role of Bruce Banner / Hulk,[97] and in July 2010, Mark Ruffalo was cast in his place.[98] Downey, Evans, Hemsworth, Johansson, Renner, Hiddleston and Jackson reprised their respective roles from previous films.[99] Principal photography began in April 2011 in Albuquerque, New Mexico,[95] before moving to Cleveland, Ohio in August,[100] and New York City in September.[101] The premiere was held on April 11, 2012 at the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles, California,[102] and the film was released in the United States on May 4.[103]

Gwyneth Paltrow, who portrayed Pepper Potts in Iron Man and Iron Man 2, was included in the film at Downey's insistence. Prior to this, Whedon had not intended the film to include supporting characters from the heroes' individual films, commenting, "You need to separate the characters from their support systems in order to create the isolation you need for a team."[104] The supervillain Thanos appears in a mid-credits scene, portrayed by Damion Poitier.[105]

The film is set in December 2013,[128][129] after the events of The Avengers.[130] In the film Tony Stark experiences PTSD-like symptoms following the Battle of New York in The Avengers. Black explained, "that's an anxiety response to feeling inferior to The Avengers, but also to being humbled by sights he cannot possibly begin to understand or reconcile with the realities he's used to... There's a line in the movie about 'ever since that big guy with the hammer fell out of the sky, the rules have changed'. That's what we're dealing with here."[131] Bruce Banner appears in a post-credits scene, with Ruffalo reprising the role. About the scene, Ruffalo said "They were about to wrap the movie and I saw Robert [Downey, Jr.] at the Academy Awards... and he said, 'What do you think about coming and doing a day?' I said, 'Are you kidding me? Bang, let's do it!' We sort of spitballed that scene, then I came in and we shot for a couple of hours and laughed."[132]

Hiddleston said, "I did an impression of Loki in the Captain America costume, and then they showed Chris [Evans] my performance on tape. It's him doing an impression of me doing an impression of him. And it's brilliant."[143]James Gunn, the director of Guardians of the Galaxy, directed the mid-credits scene that featured the Collector, played by Benicio del Toro. Asked about shooting the scene, Gunn said, "I got the script that morning, and I did it in two hours at the end of a day of second unit shooting [for Guardians of the Galaxy]."[144]

About their appearances Gunn said, "There's a lot of stuff in the Collector's Museum. And for me, it was mostly just really fun. As a Marvel fan, giving the actual fans something that they can freeze frame on their Blu-Ray at home and just kind of pick out everything that's in there. So there are, I mean, seriously all those boxes have something interesting in them, so it's pretty fun."[171] Ronan's race, the Kree, were first introduced in the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode "T.A.H.I.T.I.".[172][173]

The film rights reverted to Marvel in May 2013.[433] Development on the project began as early as May 2013, with a working-script for the film.[356] By July 2015, Wesley Snipes stated that he had discussed the possibility of reprising his role, with Marvel Studios.[434] In October 2016, star of the Underworld film series Kate Beckinsale, stated that a Blade team-up movie had been discussed, but was declined because Marvel Studios had plans to implement the character into the MCU.[435] Later that same month, Kevin Feige corroborated this story, explaining that the studio had declined because they did not want to work with another studio on the character and decided to keep the film rights with Marvel Studios. In the same interview, Feige confirmed plans to bring the character into the MCU, acknowledging that the studio had considered Netflix and ABC Studios television series, though there were no immediate plans with the character.[436] In June 2017, Feige reiterated Marvel Studios' plans to integrate the character into the film franchise, stating that the Blade film series produced by Warner Bros. Pictures had an impact on him during his early days of working at Marvel; noting that the financially successful movies confirmed to him that various lesser known comic book characters could have successful feature films, regardless of an established fan-base. He likened the experience and the insight to the success of Guardians of the Galaxy. After calling the titular hero a "legacy character", he acknowledged once more that there will be movement on the character within the MCU at some point.[437] In August 2018, Snipes revealed that discussions regarding the character had taken place at Marvel Studios for two years at that point, stating that there are two projects in development for the character though they would not be announced nor move forward until Marvel gave them the green-light. Though the actor expressed interest in reprising the role, Ali was ultimately cast in the MCU reboot.[438]

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

In April 2016, Kevin Feige stated that "Guardians 3 is [one film that's] up there" being considered for release beyond 2019.[439] In March 2017, Gunn stated that a third Guardians film would happen "for sure",[440] and the following month confirmed he would return to write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.[441] However, in July 2018, Disney and Marvel severed ties with Gunn following the resurfacing of controversial tweets from 2008 and 2009 making light of topics such as rape and pedophilia.[442][443] Marvel planned to continue to use Gunn's script for the film.[444] Production was put on hold in August 2018,[445] ahead of the planned start of filming in January or February 2019.[446][445] In March 2019, Disney and Marvel reversed course and reinstated Gunn as the director of the film. Filming will begin in 2020 once he has completed his work for the DC Extended Universe film The Suicide Squad.[447][407] Feige confirmed that the film is in development at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con.[429]

Untitled Captain Marvel sequel

In February 2019, Brie Larson expressed interest for including the character Kamala Khan / Ms. Marvel in a sequel to Captain Marvel;[448] while Feige previously said he had plans to introduce Khan to the MCU following the release of Captain Marvel.[449] The following month, Feige said he had "pretty amazing" ideas for a Captain Marvel sequel.[450] Feige added that a sequel could explore the time gap between the end of the first film and Danvers' next appearance in Avengers: Endgame.[451]Lashana Lynch expressed interest in reprising her role as Maria Rambeau in such a sequel.[452] Feige confirmed the film is in development at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con.[429]

Untitled Fantastic Four film

At the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con, Feige announced that the Fantastic Four will join the MCU, in an upcoming film centered around the team.[429] Feige told Variety that the film will "[bring] Marvel's first family up to the sort of platform and level they deserve", after the critical and commercial failure of 20th Century Fox's previous film adaptation.[453]

Untitled mutant-centered film

During Marvel Studios' panel at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con, where the plans for Phase Four were discussed, Feige confirmed that the studio is developing movies about mutants (which include X-Men).[429] Asked by IGN whether the mutants film would not be X-Men-titled, Feige acknowledged that the terms "X-Men" and "mutants" are interchangeable but went on to say that the MCU approach would be quite different from the 20th Century Fox film series.[454]

Potential projects

Untitled Ant-Man and the Wasp sequel

Ahead of the release of Ant-Man and the Wasp, Peyton Reed noted that he and Marvel were "hopeful" about a third Ant-Man film, having discussed potential story points.[455]Michael Douglas also expressed interest in playing a younger version of his character Hank Pym in a prequel,[456] something which Reed already teased back in 2015.[457] In February 2019, Douglas said of a possible sequel, "There's been talk [about another Ant-Man]... [but] there's been nothing formal right now that I know of."[458]

Untitled Deadpool film

After the acquisition of 21st Century Fox by Disney was announced in December 2017, Disney CEO Bob Iger said that Deadpool would be integrated with the MCU under Disney,[459] with Ryan Reynolds expected to reprise his role as Wade Wilson / Deadpool from the X-Men film series.[460] The Once Upon a Deadpool version of Deadpool 2 (2018) was being watched carefully by Disney and Marvel to see whether it might inform how they could approach the character and integrate him into the PG-13 MCU.[461]

Timeline

The Phase One Timeline infographic released by Marvel in May 2012[462]

During Phase One of the MCU, Marvel Studios lined up some of their films' stories with references to one another, though they had no long-term plan for the shared universe's timeline at that point.[45]Iron Man 2 is set six months after the events of Iron Man,[46] and around the same time as Thor according to comments made by Nick Fury.[45] The official tie-in comic Fury's Big Week confirmed that The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, and Thor all took place within a week, a year before the crossover film The Avengers. Writers Chris Yost and Eric Pearson tried to follow the logic of the films' timeline when plotting the comic, and received "the seal of approval" from Feige and Marvel Studios on the final timeline.[463] As promotion ahead of the release of The Avengers, Marvel released an official infographic detailing this timeline in May 2012.[462]

Wanting to simplify the in-universe timeline,[45] the Phase Two films were set roughly in real time relating to The Avengers: Iron Man 3 takes place about six months later, during Christmas;[128][130]Thor: The Dark World is set one year later;[142] and Captain America: The Winter Soldier is two years after.[130]Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man ended the phase in 2015,[188][204] with several months passing between those films in-universe as in real life.[205] For Phase Three, directors the Russo brothers wanted to continue using real time, and so Captain America: Civil War begins a year after Age of Ultron,[244] with Avengers: Infinity War set two years after that.[343] However, producer Brad Winderbaum said the Phase Three films would actually "happen on top of each other" while being less "interlocked" as the Phase One films were,[319] with Black Panther and Spider-Man: Homecoming respectively beginning a week and several months after Civil War;[322][294]Thor: Ragnarok beginning four years after The Dark World and two years after Age of Ultron,[317][318] which is set around the same time as Civil War and Homecoming;[319]Doctor Strange taking place over a whole year and ending "up to date with the rest of the MCU";[264]Ant-Man and the Wasp also set two years after Civil War and shortly before Infinity War;[352] and both Guardians of the Galaxy and its sequel Vol. 2 being explicitly set in 2014,[168][278] which Feige believed would create a four-year gap between Vol. 2 and Infinity War, though the other MCU films up to that point do not specify years onscreen.[464]

When Spider-Man: Homecoming was being developed, director and co-writer Jon Watts was shown a scroll detailing the MCU timeline that was created by co-producer Eric Carroll when he first began working for Marvel Studios. Watts said the scroll included both where the continuity of the films lined-up and did not lineup, and when fully unfurled it extended beyond the length of a long conference table. This scroll was used as the basis to weave the continuity of Homecoming into the previous films, such as The Avengers.[465] This was labeled in the film with a title card stating that eight years pass between the end of The Avengers and the events of Civil War, which was widely criticized as a continuity error that broke the established MCU timeline, in which only four years should have passed.[295][466] Additionally, dialogue in Civil War indicates that eight years pass between the end of Iron Man and the events of that film, despite the established continuity being closer to five or six years.[467][468]Infinity War co-director Joe Russo described the Homecoming eight years time jump as "very incorrect",[469] and the mistake was ignored in Infinity War which specified that its events were taking place only six years after The Avengers.[468] The public response to the Homecoming mistake inspired Marvel Studios to release a new timeline for all three phases,[466] and in November 2018, a timeline, specifying dates for the events in each film released to that point, was included as part of the sourcebook Marvel Studios: The First 10 Years, celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the MCU.[470]

Notes: The Incredible Hulk, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Ant-Man and the Wasp are discussed in the Marvel Studios: The First 10 Years sourcebook, but their events are not included in the timeline.[470]

This timeline ignores the two "eight-year" continuity errors, but also contradicts the events of Black Panther and Infinity War by placing them in 2017. Despite the latter apparent mistakes, Thomas Bacon of Screen Rant described the timeline as "the closest Marvel has yet come to making an official statement on just when the different MCU events are set", bringing "some sense of balance to the MCU continuity".[471] Following Infinity War, the Russo brothers said future films would not necessarily be set according to real time as there are "a lot of very inventive ways of where the story can go from here", with both Ant-Man and the Wasp and Captain Marvel set earlier in the timeline;[472] the latter is set in 1995.[364]Avengers: Endgame begins shortly after Infinity War and ends in 2023 after a five-year time jump. It confirms dates for several of the other films, including The Avengers in 2012, Thor: The Dark World in 2013, Guardians of the Galaxy in 2014, Doctor Strange around 2017, and Ant-Man and the Wasp in 2018 at the same time as Infinity War.[373]Spider-Man: Far From Home begins eight months after Endgame in 2024,[390] contradicting Amy Pascal's prior statement that it would begin only a few minutes after Endgame.[473]Black Widow is set between Civil War and Infinity War.[408]

Release

Home media

In June 2012, Marvel announced a 10-disc box set titled "Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One - Avengers Assembled", for release on September 25, 2012. The box set includes all six of the Phase One films--Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, and Marvel's The Avengers--on Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D, in a replica of Nick Fury's briefcase from The Avengers.[529] In August 2012, luggage company Rimowa GmbH, who developed the briefcase for The Avengers, filed suit against Marvel Studios and Buena Vista Home Entertainment in U.S. federal court, complaining that "Marvel did not obtain any license or authorization from Rimowa to make replica copies of the cases for any purpose."[530] The set was delayed to early 2013 for the packaging to be redesigned.[531] The box set, with a redesigned case, was released on April 2, 2013. In addition, the box set included a featurette on the then-upcoming Phase Two films, showing footage and concept art, as well as previously unreleased deleted scenes from all of the Phase One films.[532]

In July 2015, Marvel announced a 13-disc box set titled "Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase Two Collection", for release on December 8, 2015, exclusive to Amazon.com. The box set includes all six of the Phase Two films--Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Ant-Man--on Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D and a digital copy, in a replica of the Orb from Guardians of the Galaxy, plus a bonus disc and exclusive memorabilia. Material on the bonus disc includes all of the Marvel One-Shots with commentary, deleted scenes and pre-production creative features for each of the films, featurettes on the making of the post-credit scenes for the films, and first looks at Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.[533][534]

IMAX 10th anniversary festival

The films were shown in release order, with four films per day. The final days of the festival were theme related, with one showing "origin" films (Iron Man, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Black Panther, and Doctor Strange), one showing "team-ups" (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Captain America: Civil War, The Avengers, and Avengers: Infinity War),[535][536] and the final day showing Iron Man and The Avengers as chosen by the fans via a Twitter poll.[537] The festival also saw Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, and Captain America: The First Avenger released in IMAX for the first time.[535][536]

  • Inhumans: In April 2013, Feige mentioned the Inhumans as a property out of which he was "confident" a film would be made.[621] Inhumans as a concept would first be introduced to the MCU in 2014 through the second season of the television series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.[622] By August 2014, the studio was ready to move forward in development with the film, with a screenplay written by Joe Robert Cole.[623] In October 2014, the film was announced for Phase Three[234] and scheduled for release July 2019.[316] By October 2015, Cole was no longer involved with the film and any potential drafts that he may have written would not be used.[624] In April 2016, Inhumans was removed from the release schedule,[625] and would no longer be a part of Phase Three.[626] In July 2016, Feige said Inhumans would "certainly" be a part of the discussion regarding the film ideas for 2020 and 2021,[627] adding the following November that he was still optimistic the film could be released in Phase Four.[628] In November 2016, Marvel Television announced the series Marvel's Inhumans, which premiered on ABC in September 2017, after the first two episodes were screened in IMAX.[629] The series was not intended to be a reworking of the film.[630] ABC canceled Inhumans after one season in May 2018.[631]
  • Runaways: A film based on the Runaways went through a number of iterations. Brian K. Vaughan was originally hired to write a screenplay based on the property in May 2008.[632] In April 2010, Marvel hired Peter Sollett to direct the film,[633] and Drew Pearce was hired to write a script in May.[634] The following October, development on the film was put on hold,[635] with Pearce revealing in September 2013 that the Runaways film had been shelved in favor of The Avengers, with the earliest it could release being Phase Three.[636] In October 2014, after announcing all of Marvel's Phase Three films without Runaways, Feige stated the project was "still an awesome script that exists in our script vault", adding, "We'd love to do something with Runaways some day. In our television and future film discussions, it's always one that we talk about, because we have a solid draft there. But again, we can't make them all."[194] In August 2016, Marvel Television announced Marvel's Runaways from the streaming service Hulu,[637] with the series receiving a full season order in May 2017.[638] It premiered in November 2017.[639]
