Marvel Cinematic Universe

Marvel Cinematic Universe

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a shared universe created by Marvel Studios featuring its independently made films. All so far exist in the same universe, much like Marvel has done with their comics.

The universe eventually expanded to a series of short films, called Marvel One-Shots, included with each film’s Blu-ray release.

The short films were eventually discontinued to favour different television series also existing in the same universe, that are currently in different stages of development.
