The MCU has turned out to be a major success beyond one’s wildest dreams. However, Marvel revealed that the original plans for the MCU were much different. For one thing, there was no Iron Man or Thor. Nick Fury was going to have more of a presence, and there was going to be a focus on the power pack. Shang Chi and other characters were considered ahead of the group. As a matter of fact, it has been revealed that the MCU had a different plan based on what the perception was about comic books from the public.
One of the major factors at the time of the plans for the MCU was that there was a different perception of comic book movies. At the time, it was rare for a comic book movie to do well at the box office. In fact, the only good movies from comic book properties were the first Batman and Superman movies from DC, and then X-Men and even Blade. It wasn’t until 2005 that people started to realize that comic books can make for some amazing movies. The only thing was that the stories had to be stripped down and grounded in reality to work. For instance, The Dark Knight has become a crime epic in 2008 with Iron Man being grounded in reality.
Fast forward to 2018 and the MCU has become one of the most successful franchises, reveals screenrant.com. It is now the main comic book franchise and has surpassed DC movies. Ever since Chris Nolan has finished up his Batman trilogy, DC has been on a decline. The Justice League has established the DCEU as an inferior franchise to the MCU. Only about 2 high quality films came out from the DCEU. These films were Man of Steel, and Wonder Woman. The other films were perhaps victims of studio interference.
The MCU has been on a steady increase when it comes to quality. Now, it has turned out to be the type of event that has surpassed even Star Wars, which is another declining franchise, in quality and success. Avengers: Infinity War is getting ready to be released within the week, and it is expected to surpass Black Panther, which has been a phenomenon. One thing that is going to make Avengers: Infinity War a huge success is the ending of the film. The ending is going to bring feelings of heartbreak and yet satisfaction for the whole experience.
