In the many alternate realities Marvel Comics had found themselves in a weak position, where they were on the verge of total bankruptcy. But in an unlikely event, 21st Century Fox made a deal to purchase the rights to Marvel Entertainment, it's characters and act as it's parent company. Because of this, Marvel had all of their characters cinematic, television, merchandising, and video games rights completely under their control.

Phase 0

20th Century Fox had produced multiple Marvel films since their purchase in 1992. Most receiving good audience reception and sizable profits. But one day Kevin Feige pitched an unusual idea, that Fox should let Marvel create it's own Studio for making those movies, and put them in the same universe as each other like in the comics. At first Fox executives were skeptical of how successful the idea would be, but after some discussions they decided to give this a chance and green light the project. Having their upcoming Wolverine, The Amazing Spider-Man and Fantastic Four films be distributed by the brand new Marvel Studios and 20th Century Fox respectively.

After the surprising hit that was Marvel's The Wolverine, Kevin Feige announced at the 2007 Comic Con Fox had green lighted two other movies to take place in the now called "Marvel Cinematic Universe, The Incredible Hulk and The Uncanny X-Men. Causing much glee amongst Marvel fans.

Phase 1

After the extremely successful start to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Fox had began to trust and heavily fund Marvel Studios. Because of this a bold idea was thrown around, even though the X-Men, Spider-Man and Fantastic Four took place in the MCU they rarely interacted with one another and the creative minds at Marvel Studios wished to take advantage of the concept of a shared universe. So they tried to move forward with a possible Avengers movie, with each hero getting their own solo series, and then teaming up in one big film. It was considered a risk by most, considering the Avengers heroes were considered b-list and no series had ever built up multiple franchises into one big movie. But Marvel went along with it anyway. This started the grouping of MCU movies into Phases. The first Phase (Phase 1) being "Avengers Assembled". Everything post Iron Man, being considered into "Phase 0" so to speak.

Phase 2

After Marvel Studios had surprised everyone with the success of the Avengers stand-alone films and the team-up making over 1.5 billion dollars at the box-office, they were very excited to move on with Phase 2 of the MCU. They would continue the same formula as Phase 1, where each Avengers superhero (and Non-Avengers ones) would get stand alone films, with one being a large team up movie.

Television

After The Avengers, it was announced that Marvel would be making Television shows to air on Fox's asset networks, with Jeph Loeb being the creative head of the new Marvel Studios Television department. On FOX Marvel's long term series would be aired, while short term prequels would be instead put on FX. Any properties who were considered too unpopular, dark or street-based would be given a series on Netflix. Despite the first TV show (Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) first coming on the network after The Avengers, ideas for Marvel TV were thrown since the beginning of Phase 1.

Fox

The first Marvel show announced was called Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. about a team of S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents who deal with Supernatural events in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and sometimes the stuff that occurs in the aftermath of the blockbuster films. It was developed by Joss and Jed Whedon and the first season aired along 2013 - 2014 season. The show would star Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) who was thought to have been defeated in the Avengers movie.

It was revealed in Comic Con 2013 as well, that by Kevin Feige and Bryan Singer that an X-Men television series was in development called titled Mutant-X, being centered around average people in the Marvel Cinematic Universe gaining mutant abilities, and dealing with the discrimination and social scrutiny that comes along with it, as well as being united as a Pseudo X-Men team in the process. The show's first season aired September 2014, it was confirmed for a second season. It was announced after this that Marvel TV would slow down after this show, as not to stretch themselves too thin in all forms of media.

Marvel and Fox had also announced that a comedic show called Damage Control was in development.
