This year, Marvel Studios is celebrating 10 years of the MCU — an impressive length of time, to be sure, but even more impressive given the number of films they’ve released since 2008. (Black Panther is the 18th movie, FYI.) The game-changing studio is celebrating this milestone all year long, starting with a massive class photo (Academy Awards-style) in which they’ve assembled all 79 stars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s so many familiar faces, in fact, that we had to crop some of them out in the above photo.
While Cap and Iron Man and all their earth-bound super-friends were tearing each other apart in Civil War, Thor and Hulk were off minding their own damn business because, unlike their pals, these guys are actually civil. (Okay, maybe not Hulk.) That business is primarily fighting a new villain hellbent on intergalactic domination, and to do so, Thor must assemble a team of his very own. And that team is the subject of a new featurette for Thor: Ragnarok, titled “Meet the ‘Revengers’!”
Due to some complicated rights issues, it remains unlikely that we’ll see everyone’s favorite angry green smashing machine in another solo movie anytime soon. But Mark Ruffalo and Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige have apparently cooked up a plan that will allow the Hulk (and his puny alter ego Bruce Banner) to have his very own film trilogy of sorts. Think of it as a film-within-a-film trilogy.
