The thread to celebrate the premiere of Marvel's Agents of Shield!
The Marvel cinematic universe began with one hero: Robert Downey Jr
Iron Man. Turns out, it became a monster hit, thus Marvel decided to do the unthinkable. They released a set of movies that introduced major heroes in the marvel universe, such as Captain America, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Black Widow, Samuel L Jackson with an eye patch, and Stan Lee. (At some point Hawkeye was thrown in as a last minute cameo, so he doesn't count.)
These movies were successful on various levels. The quality was all over the place, but in the end, they were hugely entertaining. After Marvel finished what was called 'phase 1', they ended it with something no comic fan thought they would ever see: The Avengers (or unofficially Iron Man and his wacky pals) directed by none other than Joss Whedon (creator of Firefly, one of the best Science Fictions ever made).
The movie was huge. People loved it. Marvel made lots of money.
That brings us to 'phase 2' of the cinematic universe. Iron Man 3 is releasing on Blu-ray today, and Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. premieres today. Today is a big day for Marvel. Who knew that Marvel would get a show up and running? And that it would be helmed by geek god Joss Whedon.
