In 2008, director Jon Favreau’s hit superhero action movie “Iron Man” launched a film franchise the likes of which pop culture had never seen before. That year Marvel Studios was born, and since then under the supervision of president Kevin Feige, nearly twenty total films have been produced, all interwoven with each other under the same Marvel Cinematic Universe umbrella.
Today Marvel Studios and parent company Disney released a photograph (and accompanying behind-the-scenes video) shot this past October that commemorates the momentous 10th anniversary of the collaboration with a grand class photo assembling over eighty actors and filmmakers– and of course, Stan “The Man” Lee— on the Atlanta, Georgia set of this summer’s “Avengers: Infinity War.”
MCU cast members featured in the photo include Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Paul Rudd, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chris Pratt, Chadwick Boseman, Brie Larson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Holland, Sean Gunn, Hannah John-Kamen, Zoe Saldana, Angela Bassett, Jon Favreau, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kurt Russell, Danai Gurira, William Hurt, Karen Gillan, Emily VanCamp, Tessa Thompson, Don Cheadle, Dave Bautista, Michael Peña, Anthony Mackie, Evangeline Lilly, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Frank Grillo, Letitia Wright, Laurence Fishburne, Linda Cardellini, Sebastian Stan, Ty Simpkins, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Hayley Atwell, Pom Klementieff, Benedict Wong, Michael Rooker, Vin Diesel, Cobie Smulders, Samuel L.
