The Marvel Cinematic Universe (abbreviated as the MCU), also nicknamed as the Marvelous Cinematic Universe, is a media franchise and shared fictional universe that is centered on a production of superhero films and television series, independently produced by Marvel Studios and based on characters that appear in publications by Marvel Comics. The franchise has expanded to include comic books, short films, and television series. The shared universe, much like the original Marvel Universe in comic books, was established by crossing over common plot elements, settings, cast, and characters. This version of the MCU is created by MarvelousMarty and this version of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel has taken the rights to Fantastic Four and X-Men from Fox along with Spider-Man and characters from Sony and the full rights on the Hulk, Namor, along with its characters from Universal. This has altered much of the history of the real MCU reality, and has added more additional films, skipped some of them, or moved them into streaming or television throughout the years. Aside from some notable creative differences in the stories and directions of the original films, different casts for characters in several original films have also been an occurrence in this reality, such as in the first X-Men film (2000).

Trivia

  • While Marvel Studios has fully acquired rights of every cinematic character, it never stopped nor fully restricted other media franchises from building their own their own versions of several characters, with Marvel Entertainment justifying this decision as a way to establish a share multiverse in Marvel's film franchises, something that would later be paid off in the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase Four until Phase Eight.
    • Sony Pictures was given permission to film and produce their own standalone Spider-Man film trilogy (2002, 2004, 2009) mainly starring Tobey Maguire as a more mature and older adaptation of the iconic character and having different directors each film. Due to the critical and commercial success that it received, this version among other versions of the character that were featured in other media, notably What If...? (since 2014), went on to appear in Into the Spider-Verse by 2023.
    • Standalone from the main MCU, Marvel Studios collaborated with Universal Studios as they film and produced the R-rated Squadron Supreme franchise since 2010, mostly granting its writers and directors the creative freedom that they need in terms of how the direction of the films' story would go. The iconic superhero team would later appear in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Marvels in 2024.
