Marvel Cinematic Universe, more commonly called MCU, has given us many characters that we now recognize today as superheroes. The people behind these iconic MCU films, the Russo Brothers, painted a different light on each Marvel character that they bring to the screen.
The previous years had been a major success for most Marvel films, and now that new phases have been announced, and lots of new movies coming out in the next few years, let’s talk a look back at the beloved characters that the Russos introduced to fans:
Morgan is the adorable daughter of Tony Stark and Pepper Potts who we first saw in Avengers: Endgame. Amidst all the chaos that the snap brought to everyone’s lives, Morgan became the light and hope that reminded everyone that things will be alright.
The Stark family settled in a cozy cabin in the woods and raised Morgan most lovingly. Fans have seen many precious moments between her and her parents. Nothing beats the feeling of hearing your daughter say, “I love you, 3000.”
Sam appeared in Captain America: The Winter Soldier as Steve’s best pal. He was very important in bringing Cap back into the world and into the game. Despite starting as a supporting role, the character developed into a significant one towards the end of the Infinity saga.
Now, Sam has his own series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, where he finally accepts the role of new Captain America. His future in the MCU has become even brighter!
Sharon is a SHIELD agent who was initially intended to become Steve’s love interest. But, things did not exactly work out as expected, especially when Sharon became a villain in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. It’s surprising to see a minor role become something so significant in an instant, and that is what makes her character really intriguing.
Now that Sharon has been revealed as the “Power Broker,” fans can only expect to see more of her in the future.
Black Panther first appeared in Captain America: Civil War where his main goal was to capture Bucky Barnes, accusing the Winter Soldier of murdering his father. His debut in the movie gave a very promising introduction to the character and the world of Wakanda. Two years later, he finally gets his own solo film.
The movie became not only a worldwide box-office success but also a movement towards equality. Black Panther is the first-ever superhero film with a majority of all-Black cast. The superhero’s introduction to the MCU changed the game for cultural significance and representation in mainstream movies.
Peter Parker is a fan-favorite character, and his debut in Captain America: Civil War had fans jumping with excitement. Tom Holland did a fantastic job in bringing the character to life, so much more in his own trilogy films.
Not only did the Russos introduce a new version of Spider-Man, but they also opened the opportunity for the three Spider-Men to finally meet in one universe.
