In just about a week we’re going to witness an unprecedented cinematic event – the culmination of a 22-film arc with Avengers: Endgame. Iron Man wowed crowds back in 2008, igniting a worldwide craze that saw millions fall for characters like Robert Downey Jr.‘s Tony Stark, Chris Evans‘ Steve Rogers, Chris Hemsworth‘s Thor, and so many more. The franchise tapped into spy film vibes with Captain America: The Winter Soldier, 90s action with Captain Marvel and it also delivered a cultural phenomenon with Black Panther. The Marvel Cinematic Universe changed the game significantly in Hollywood, propelled some extremely talented individuals to stardom and, perhaps most important of all, it enchanted moviegoers across the globe, inspiring viewers to recognize, embrace and celebrate what it means to be a hero.
With that in mind, we wanted to take a moment to honor the MCU and bring together 22 films into one nine-minute tribute video.
