To celebrate its 10-year milestone, Marvel Studios released a featurette that highlights the filmmakers, producers and actors who brought the Marvel Cinematic Universe to life.
The featurette begins with a 2008 interview from Iron Man director Jon Favreau, conducted shortly before the film was even released. "This could be anything from a flop or a moderate single or something that's beyond what people's expectations are," he said at the time. Of course, we know now that the film would be incredibly well-received and pave the way for The Incredible Hulk, Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger.
In the video, various Marvel actors praise President of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige for his overarching vision for MCU. It also shows behind-the-scenes video footage of the actors enjoying the production of their films, including Chris Pratt's dance-off from Guardians of the Galaxy.
The featurette also hypes up the release of Avengers: Infinity War, which marks the beginning of the end for Marvel's Phase 3. Like the featurette, Infinity War will showcase characters from every franchise in its repertoire.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Olsen, Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chadwick Boseman, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Tom Hiddleston, and Josh Brolin. The film arrives April 27.
