Though it seems like only yesterday we were just watching Robert Downey Jr. crafting his crude-but-cool Mark 1 armor in Iron Man, it's actually been 10 years since the initial hatching of the Marvel Cinematic Universe back in May of 2008.
Now, 20 Hollywood films and $17.5 billion in worldwide box office bucks later, the grand orchestration of interconnected superhero features will culminate in the final release of Phase 3 with the Avengers: Infinity Wars Sequel next year.
A new Marvel Studios retrospective from London-based Titan Books launches on Tuesday, Nov. 13 and SYFY WIRE has an exclusive peek at all the capes, cowls, and claws as we catch our breath and await 2019's Captain Marvel and Avengers 4.
From Stark Tower and the super-science kingdom of Wakanda, to The Collector's lair in Knowhere and the gladiator pits of Sakaar, this extensive 144-page hardback applauds the evolution of Marvel comic book crusaders in all their geeky glory upon the silver screen.
