The MCU’s ten-year anniversary bash may have officially begun when we rang in 2018, and Marvel Studios may have even gotten themselves one hell of a present to commemorate the occasion, via Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther, currently sitting at a little over $1.3 billion at the worldwide box office. But, we all know that the real party starts on April 27th with the release of Avengers: Infinity War. For what better way is there to celebrate the Marvel Cinematic Universe, then by dismantling it?
We’ve only got about two weeks to go now before Thanos’ arrival and fans are busy chiseling the name(s) of their favourite hero(es) into a marble tombstone. To save time and effort, though, they’re probably better off buying the commemorative book Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years, which is scheduled to hit store shelves this November.
Not much is known about the highly-anticipated release, but what we do know is that it will contain details on some of the MCU’s most iconic moments and tons of behind the scenes photos. In fact, Marvel decided to give us an early present by debuting five of them as part of the book’s announcement earlier today, and you can check them out in the gallery below.
What began with Jon Favreau’s Iron Man back in 2008 has grown exponentially. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has reached a level of popularity that even the studio itself could’ve never envisioned. Now, Avengers: Infinity War will act as the culmination of a decade-long effort to bring Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to the big screen, and Kevin Feige and co. have found success every step of the way.
While we’re unsure which of our heroes will make it out alive, and how we’ll react, we do know that the MCU will be all the better for the sacrifice and that no matter what ends up happening in Infinity War and its currently untitled sequel, the future looks very, very bright for Marvel.
