The Marvel Cinematic Universe, fondly called the MCU, is a vast collection of superhero movies and series created by Marvel Studios. These stories follow a singular narrative of Marvel characters and are based on the famous characters from the evergreen comic book franchise. Beginning with the origin stories of beloved heroes — Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and more — and blossoming into the action-packed, billion-dollars-grossing Avengers installments, the MCU has rightfully earned its spot as the highest grossing film franchise of all time. Packed with interwoven storylines that have kept viewers hooked for more than a decade, and with consistent character development, both old and new fans remain intrigued by the universe and its story-building.
With more movies like Thor: Love and Thunder, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and Ms. Marvel coming out later this year, and making up Phase Four of the MCU, fans will need their fix of breakdowns, reviews, Easter eggs, and connections scattered across the Marvel universe. To completely revel in the new movies and shows on the way, and enjoy the recaps of the previous offerings, it’s important to find the right sources on YouTube.
