The Marvel Cinematic Universe came into being with Iron Man in the year 2008. The cinematic universe is not confined to the 22 massive blockbuster movies that the world has ever seen. What started with Jon Favreau’s Iron Man is currently heading towards Spiderman: Far From Home which is due for release on the 2nd of July 2019 in the US. Marvel Studio consists of One-Shots, MCU Television Series, and MCU Digital Series.
As of now, the conclusion to MCU’s 1.2 Billion dollar movie, “The Avengers” meets its end with Avengers: Endgame. Endgame has broken numerous records when it comes to the box office. So, what makes the MCU a hit among all the other franchises?
The Unification Of Class And Mass
The wide array of Marvel Cinematic Universe‘s audience is not into comics, neither did they know about Iron Man before the 2008 movie. On the other hand, two different groups of audience speculate and discuss Marvel should do with its characters on the big screen. And when that happens, this segment of the audience is pleased. MCU has curated a formula that satisfies both the segments of audiences. And this is the reason why Endgame is on the verge of becoming the highest grossing movie of all time.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe Is All About The Team And Not Standalone Actors
Since a very long time, Hollywood survives due to great actors and actresses. Some of the notables actors are Tom Hanks, George Clooney, Keanu Reeves, Elizabeth Taylor, among others. These stars could easily guarantee that their audience will show up and watch them on the big screen. Moreover, the producers give these actors ample amount of money as compensation.
Marvel Cinematic Universe also incorporates big stars like Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr, Sam L Jackson. Likewise, these stars have made a great name for themselves in Hollywood. These stars became much more famous after being a part of the MCU. The bigger actors like Tom Cruise, Woody Harrelson, cannot accumulate much money like before. And Marvel understood this better than anyone else.
Marvel Cinematic Universe‘s Guardians of the Galaxy has lesser known actors. And yet both the first and the second volume of the Guardians of the Galaxy are massive hits.
Marvel Cinematic Universe Made Superheroes Cool
Most of the people in their twenties have grown-up watching the Marvel-Fox animated series. And who could forget the covert reading of comic books under the blanket and during exams?
Marvel has made some of the lesser-known comic characters an instant hit among the audience, young or older. People now love Star-Lord and talk about Guardians of the Galaxy, and this was not possible before the MCU.
Acclaimed Post-Credit Scenes
Why didn’t anybody think about the post-credits scenes before MCU? Well, this is one of the reasons why MCU has become popular over time. Some of the post-credits scenes are a little joke, like Bruce Banner telling Tony Stark in the post-credit scene of Iron Man 3, I’m not the kind of doctor who has a T– Temperament.
Marvel went from being a bankrupt franchise to being the most successful franchises in the world with MCU.
