The MCU is now 10 years old and it keeps growing bigger and bigger. Disney has given us 10 years of sheer awesomeness after they bought Marvel Studios. From Robert Downey Jr. to Brie Larson, we have seen actors with a lot of variety and charismas join the MCU and entertain us for all these years. A while ago, Marvel had their 10-year Anniversary photo shoot where all the big names involved in the MCU movies were present. Now Marvel has released the MCU Timeline and the 10th-anniversary character posters for all the characters as well.
The MCU has become the biggest brand in Hollywood and there is no other movie franchise that can even come closer to taking them down from their reign. Bigger franchises have tried and so far, they haven’t even reached half the popularity that this franchise currently has. 10 years ago, Kevin Feige finally got to go through with his idea of a shared Universe and everything started with Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man.
Now, with 19 movies out and 20th on its way, Marvel Studios has grossed a mammoth $16.8 Billion in total and with Ant-Man and the Wasp, it will surely cross the $17 Billion mark as well. Both the Avengers movies of Phase 1 & 2 brought in close to $1.5 Billion each and Avengers: Infinity War just did the unthinkable as it went past the $2 Billion mark just yesterday. 2018 has been huge for MCU as with just 2 movies, Marvel has grossed over $3.3 Billion. This is pure insanity! The best thing is that this is Marvel at its prime and there is no stopping them for at least 5 more years. The competitors of the MCU are either being bought or are failing miserably and there is no true completion against MCU for now. Even the Star Wars and Harry Potter franchises do not pose any sort of threat against this juggernaut!
