Marvel Cinematic Universe Characters Take the 10 Year Challenge

What a difference ten years can make. That’s how long it’s been since the beginning of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The cinematic landscape changed with Tony Stark sipping a cocktail in the back of a Humvee, and now, we’re on the precipice of Avengers: Infinity War. The upcoming film is going to include about 500 heroes, villains, and MCU characters, so the word epic applies here.

But before we watch Thanos try to break our heroes and our hearts, let’s take a walk down memory lane and look at Marvel movie characters then and now, in their first appearances and their most recent ones.
