Marvel Studios- Avengers Summary



A drawing of the original Avengers.

The Avengers chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU)consisted of 21 movies. However, what even is Avengers, or Marvel to begin with? Marvel Studios is a company and brand for superhero comics and movies.  It was founded on February 19, 1961, in New York, NY. Stan Lee, who recently passed, brought almost all Marvel characters to life. With Marvel Studios, also came the start of movie production known as the MCU.  One of Marvel’s greatest achievements is the Avengers. The Avengers are a group of superheroes that are said to protect the world and others beyond it. Many popular superheroes by Marvel and in the Avengers include Ironman, Captain America, the Hulk, Black Widow, and Spiderman.

Though the Avengers movies will be coming to a stop, there will still be some stand alone movies based off of Spiderman, Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Black Widow.  Sadly, the last ever Avengers movie as of now is Avengers: Endgame. The sequel to Avengers: Infinity War. After all, the 22 Avengers Movies have brought over a total of 22 billion dollars into box offices globally!

Marvel has split the Avengers movies into phases, so far there have been three. The first phase was meant to first introduce the main Avengers: Iron Man, The Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, and Hawkeye. They come together to fight the threats of intergalactic issues. Phase two includes superheroes such as The Guardians of the Galaxy, Winter Soldier (aka Bucky Barnes), Vision, and Ant-Man who start to discover new infinity stones. The infinity stones were said to have been created by the big bang and was given to different realms and worlds throughout the galaxy. Both the reality and power stone were introduced in this phase. In phase three all the Avengers start to come together and fight each other than their real enemy Thanos. The last two movies of the phases are Infinity War and Endgame. The two movies are about the ultimate war of Thanos and the Avengers. In Infinity War, Thanos (the main villain) collects the all-powerful infinity stones in order to control the overpopulation of the whole universe. He then ends up succeeding and with a snap decimates half of the population of the whole universe. Then, Endgame finishes with the remaining Avengers find a way to bring everyone back.

As expected along the way there are some slip-ups and the Avenger’s original plan doesn’t go right. Now Loki and Gamora end up surviving, Ironman and Black Widow die, and Captain America goes back in time to live with Peggy, his old girlfriend from the 1940s. This gave Marvel Studios many possibilities to tie all ends together. There will be new Loki, Vision and Scarlet Witch, and Falcon and Bucky Barnes TV shows. There are also going to be another Spiderman, Doctor Strange, Black Widow, Black Panther, and Guardians of the Galaxy movie. While not all the original superheroes, the Avengers movies are far from over. Many can now watch these superheroes on TV and wait for the movies to come out.
