This includes Avengers: Endgamewhich is the highest-grossing film of all time. The films are written and directed by a variety of individuals and feature large, often ensemblecasts. Many of the actors, including Robert Downey Jr. Marvel Studios releases its films in groups called "Phases". The Spider-Man films are owned, financed, and distributed by Sony Pictures.
Kevin Feige and Marvel have additional storylines planned through resulting in many films "on the docket that are completely different from anything that's come before—intentionally. Feige said in April that a third Guardians of the Galaxy film was "up there" for release considerations beyond and in earlyJames Gunn confirmed that a third film would happen "for sure",  and that he would return to write and direct it as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. At the San Diego Comic-Con in July, Feige announced that an MCU Fantastic Four film was in development,  and said it would 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.
At the San Diego Comic-Con, Feige announced that Marvel Studios was developing films for mutantswhich include the X-Men team,   and noted that the terms "X-Men" and "mutants" are used interchangeably while saying the MCU depiction would differ from the 20th Century Fox film series.
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. 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.
Wanting to simplify the in-universe timeline,  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;   Thor: The Dark World is set one year later;  and Captain America: The Winter Soldier is two years after.
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. This timeline ignores the two "eight-year" continuity errors, but also contradicts the events of Black Panther and Infinity War by placing them in 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".
Bacon felt the placement of Thor: The Dark World and Black Panther corrected "previous issues" with their placement in the November First 10 Years timeline, and was glad Disney and Marvel "recognize[d] it's possible to watch these movies in anything other than release order", "legitimiz[ing]" this viewing experience.

Categories :. Universal Conquest Wiki.The Marvel Cinematic Universe MCU is an American media franchise and shared universe centered on a series of superhero filmsindependently produced by Marvel Studios and based on characters that appear in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The franchise includes 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. The first three phases in the franchise are collectively known as "The Infinity Saga". Marvel Television expanded the universe to network television with Agents of S. Marvel Television produced the digital series Agents of S.
Soundtrack albums have been released for all the films and many of the television series, as well as compilation albums containing existing music heard in the films. The franchise has been commercially successful and has generally received a positive critical response, though some reviewers have found that some of its films and television series have suffered in service of the wider universe.
It has inspired other film and television studios with comic book character adaptation rights to attempt to create similar shared universes. The MCU has been the focus of other media, outside of the shared universe, including attractions at various Walt Disney Parks and Resortsan attraction at Discovery Times Squarea Queensland Gallery of Modern Art exhibit, two television specials, guidebooks for each film, multiple tie-in video games, and commercials.
ByMarvel Entertainment had begun planning to produce its own films independently and distribute them through Paramount Pictures. Kevin FeigeArad's second-in-command,  realized that unlike Spider-Man and the X-Menwhose film rights were licensed to Sony and Fox, respectively, Marvel still owned the rights to the core members of the Avengers.
Feige, a self-described "fanboy", envisioned creating a shared universe, just as creators Stan Lee and Jack Kirby had done with their comic books in the early s. Inat 33 years old, Feige was named studio chief. In order to preserve its artistic integrity, Marvel Studios formed a creative committee of six people familiar with its comic book lore: Feige, Marvel Studios co-president Louis D'Esposito, Marvel Comics' president of publishing Dan BuckleyMarvel's chief creative officer Joe Quesadawriter Brian Michael Bendisand Marvel Entertainment president Alan Finewho oversaw the committee.
In NovemberFeige said that "in an ideal world" releases each year would include one film based on an existing character and one featuring a new character, saying it's "a nice rhythm" in that format. While not always the case, as evident by the releases of Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark Worldhe said it is "certainly something to aim for". Again, not because there's a number cruncher telling us to go to three, do more than two pictures a year, but because of the very reason just laid out: it is about managing [existing] franchises, film to film, and when we have a team ready to go, why tell them to go away for four years just because we don't have a slot?
We'd rather find a way to keep that going. On expanding the characters in the universe and letting individual films breathe and work on their own, as opposed to having Avenger team-ups outside of Avengers films, Feige stated, it is about "teaching the general movie-going audience about the notion of the characters existing separately, coming together for specific events and going away and existing separately in their own worlds again.
Just like comic readers have been doing for decades and decades Knowing what we wanted to do with Edgar and with Ant-Man, going years and years back, helped to dictate what we did with the roster for Avengers the first time. It was a bit of both in terms of his idea for the Ant-Man story influencing the birth of the MCU in the early films leading up to Avengers.
In OctoberMarvel held a press event to announce the titles of their Phase Three films.
Things were not set So the plan has been, since a few weeks before Comic-Con when we realized we weren't going to be able to do everything we wanted to do, is to decide 'let's do either something we haven't done in a long time, or something we've never done. I thought that might be early August or mid-September, it ended up being [at the end of October]. But for the most part, in broad strokes that are broad enough and loose enough that, if through the development of four of five movies before we get to the culmination So that all the movies, hopefully when they're finished, will feel like they're all interconnected and meant to be and planned far ahead, but really can live and breathe enough as individual movies to be satisfying each and of themselves.
In Aprilon moving the universe to Phase Four and reflecting on the first three, Feige said, "I think there will be a finality to moments of Phase Three, as well as new beginnings that will mark a different, a very different, a distinctively different chapter in what will someday be a complete first saga made up of three phases.Ant-Man and the Wasp is a superhero film, based on the Marvel Comics superheroes of the same names.
The film was released on July 4, internationally and on July 6, in the United States. The third untitled film in the series is slated to be released sometime in Phase Five.
From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink: Ant-Man and the Wasp. In the aftermath of Captain America: Civil WarScott Lang grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a superhero and a father.
As he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he's confronted by Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside The Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from their past.
InJanet van Dyne shrinks between the molecules of a Soviet nuclear missile, disabling it but entering the microscopic Quantum Realm. Hank Pym raises their daughter Hope believing that Janet is dead. In the present day, Scott Lang spends time with his daughter Cassie. Although he was arrested and imprisoned for helping Captain America during a skirmish between the Avengers in violation of the Sokovia AccordsLang took a plea bargain and was allowed to return to the US.The Problem With DC's Heroes
Lang was sentenced to two years under house arrest, with a twenty-year minimum prison sentence waiting if he leaves his home during his sentence or defies the Sokovia Accords again. Lang spends the next two years keeping himself busy various ways including learning close-up magicand also sets up a security company with his friends LuisDave and Kurt to allow them to earn an income. When he has just three days left until his release from house arrest, Lang has a dream where he relives one of Janet's memories of when Hope was a child.
Despite not wanting to jeopardize his release, Lang contacts Pym on a phone he'd hidden away and briefly tells him what's happened, before deciding he sounds like an idiot, apologizing for all the trouble he landed on them and smashing the phone.
That night, as Lang relaxes he notices something buzzing nearby before being suddenly knocked out. When he wakes up, Lang finds he has been kidnapped by Hope, leaving a decoy so as not to arouse suspicion from the FBI agent Jimmy Woo. Hope is clearly angry with Lang for using the Ant-Man suit and helping Captain America without telling her as well as forcing her and her father into hiding but tells Scott that his dream coincided with Pym briefly opening a quantum tunnel.
Lang meets Pym who is also very bitter towards Scott for his actions but puts it aside for now as he and Hope decide Lang is their only hope of locating Janet's coordinates in the Quantum Realm.
Hope arranges to buy a part needed for the tunnel from the black market dealer Sonny Burchhowever, Burch has realized the potential profit that can be earned from Pym and Hope's research and double-crosses them. Hope then reveals she has a shrinking suit of her own, one which can fly and has blasters, and uses it to fight Burch and his men off and retrieve the part.
Before Hope can leave, however, she is attacked by a quantumly unstable masked woman, referred to as the Ghost. Lang tries to help fight off the Ghost and they keep hold of the part, but Ghost escapes with Pym's portable lab. Pym reluctantly visits his estranged former partner Bill Foster who helps them locate the lab. Her father, Elihas Starranother former partner of Pym's, accidentally killed himself and his wife during a quantum experiment that caused Ava's unstable state.
Foster reveals that he has been helping Ava after the accident, who they plan to cure using Janet's quantum energy.
