Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is a series of American superhero films produced by Marvel Studios based on characters that appear in publications by Marvel Comics. The phase began in 2016 with the release of Captain America: Civil War and concluded in 2019 with the release of Spider-Man: Far From Home. It includes the crossover films Avengers: Infinity War, released in 2018, and its sequel Avengers: Endgame, released in 2019. Kevin Feige produced every film in the phase, alongside Amy Pascal for Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home, and Stephen Broussard for Ant-Man and the Wasp. The eleven films of the phase grossed over $13.505 billion at the global box office along with generally positive critical and public reception. Avengers: Endgame is the highest-grossing film of all time.

Chris Evans and Tom Holland appeared the most in the phase, starring or making cameo appearances in five of the Phase Three films each. Marvel Studios also created three mockumentary short films centered on Thor, while each of the feature films received tie-in comic books. Phase Three, along with Phase One and Phase Two, make up The Infinity Saga. It will be followed by Phase Four.

Development[edit]

On October 28, 2014, the entire slate for Phase 3 was announced by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood.[1] However, changes were made from the initial reveal to accommodate the additions of Spider-Man: Homecoming and Ant-Man and the Wasp. Date changes for Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, and Captain Marvel were made as a result. Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame each had their domestic release dates moved up a week to be closer to the majority of the international release dates in order to decrease the chances of spoilers getting out before the movies were released. A movie featuring the Inhumans was originally announced to be released on November 2, 2018. The following December after the film was announced, the Inhuman species was introduced during the second season of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. that began a storyline that recurred throughout the series moving forward.[2] In April 2016, the film was officially taken off of Marvel's release schedule, though it was not outright canceled.[3] In November 2016, Feige said that "Inhumans will happen for sure. I don't know when. I think it's happening on television. And I think as we get into Phase 4 as I've always said, it could happen as a movie."[4] Shortly after, Marvel Television and IMAX Corporation announced the eight-episode television series Inhumans, to be produced in conjunction with ABC Studios and air on ABC;[5][6] Marvel Studios decided that the characters were better suited to television, and a series would be better than trying to fit the multiple planned franchise films around the studio's existing film franchises.[7] Inhumans was not intended to be a reworking of the planned film, nor a spin-off from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,[5] but it was set in the same shared universe.[8]

Thanks to the Sony Pictures hack in 2014, it was revealed that Sony and Marvel were having conversations about potentially sharing Spider-Man. Marvel wanted to introduce a new version of Spider-Man in Captain America: Civil War and then continue working with the Avengers in the future, while allowing Sony to keep creative control and use him in their own potential Spider-Man movies in spin-offs, with the potential of possibly using some of Marvel's characters. On February 9, 2015, Marvel made a post on their official website announcing that they partnered with Sony Pictures to allow Spider-Man to appear in the MCU.[9][10] On June 23, 2015, it was revealed that Tom Holland had been cast as Peter Parker / Spider-Man and would appear in Civil War as well as the next Sony Spider-Man film, which would go on to be Spider-Man: Homecoming.[11][12]

Additionally, Infinity War and Endgame were going to be released as Avengers: Infinity War - Part 1 and Avengers: Infinity War - Part 2, respectively, but in July 2016, it was announced that that would no longer be the case. As a result, the first part would keep the Infinity War title, while the formerly part 2 would get its own title that would be announced at a later date.[13] The title for Endgame wasn't officially announced until the first teaser trailer for the film was released on December 7, 2018. As a result of the title being withheld for so long, Feige felt that it backfired, but he stood by the decision to wait due to how the reveal of Infinity War and Endgame took away some of the attention from Avengers: Age of Ultron before it was released in theaters.[14]

By directing Black Panther, Ryan Coogler became the first black director for an MCU film,[15] while Anna Boden became the first woman director in the MCU when she co-directed Captain Marvel with Ryan Fleck.[16] The Phase also included the first women heroes to co-headline and headline an MCU film, with Wasp in Ant-Man and the Wasp and Captain Marvel.

The MCU has been nominated in a variety of Academy Awards categories,[17][18] but no movie had ever won an award until Black Panther won three at the 91st Academy Awards in 2019. The movie won for Best Costume Design, Best Production Design, and Best Original Score.[19] It was nominated for a total of seven awards, including for Best Picture, which was the first time that a superhero movie was nominated in the category.[18][20]

Phase Three marked the end of Stan Lee's MCU cameos, with his final cameo being in Endgame, after he died in November 2018.[21]

Captain America: Civil War (2016)[edit]

Anthony and Joe Russo, directors of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.

The Avengers become fractured into two opposing teams, one led by Captain America and another by Iron Man, after extensive collateral damage prompts politicians to pass an act regulating superhuman activity with government oversight and accountability for the Avengers while also facing against a new enemy, Helmut Zemo, who seeks revenge upon the Avengers.[43][44]

By January 2014, Anthony and Joe Russo had signed on to return to direct a third Captain America installment, which they confirmed in March 2014, with Chris Evans returning as Captain America, Kevin Feige returning to produce, and Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely writing the screenplay.[23][45] In October 2014, the title was officially announced as Captain America: Civil War along with the reveal that Robert Downey Jr. would appear in the film as Tony Stark / Iron Man.[46][47] The film is an adaptation from the "Civil War" storyline in the comics.[48] It is also the first film of Phase Three.[49][50][51] Filming began in April 2015 at Pinewood Atlanta,[52][53] and concluded in August 2015.[54] Captain America: Civil War had its premiere in Hollywood on April 12, 2016,[55] was released internationally beginning April 27,[56] and was released on May 6 in the United States.[57]

The film is set one year after the events of 2015's Avengers: Age of Ultron.[58] Captain America: Civil War introduces Tom Holland as Peter Parker / Spider-Man and Chadwick Boseman as T'Challa / Black Panther to the MCU, who appear in solo films in 2017 and 2018, respectively.[11][59] William Hurt reprises his role as Thunderbolt Ross from 2008's The Incredible Hulk, and is now the US Secretary of State.[60] For the mid-credits scene, in which Black Panther offers Captain America and Bucky Barnes asylum in Wakanda, Joe and Anthony Russo received input from Black Panther director Ryan Coogler on the look and design of Wakanda.[61]

Doctor Strange (2016)[edit]

After Stephen Strange, the world's top neurosurgeon, is involved in a car accident that ruins his career, he sets out on a journey of healing, where he encounters the Ancient One, who teaches Strange the use of Mystic Arts and to defend the Earth from mystical threats.[62][63]

In June 2010, Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer were hired to write the screenplay for a film starring the character Doctor Strange.[64] In January 2013, Feige confirmed that Doctor Strange would be a part of their Phase Three slate of films.[65] In June 2014, Scott Derrickson was hired to direct.[24] In December 2014, Benedict Cumberbatch was cast in the eponymous role, and Jon Spaihts was confirmed to rewrite the script.[66][67] In December 2015, C. Robert Cargill revealed he was a co-writer on the film,[68] and the following April, revealed that Derrickson also wrote the script.[69] Pre-production began in June 2014,[70] with filming beginning in November 2015 in Nepal, before moving to Longcross Studios in the UK later in the month.[71][72] Filming concluded in New York City in April 2016.[73][74] Doctor Strange had its premiere in Hong Kong on October 13, 2016,[75] and was released in the United Kingdom on October 25, 2016,[76] and on November 4 in the United States.[47]

Derrickson stated that the events of the film take "roughly" a year, ending "up to date with the rest of the MCU". Doctor Strange introduces the Eye of Agamotto, a mystical relic that can manipulate time and is revealed to be an Infinity Stone at the end of the film,[77] specifically the Time Stone.[78] The film's mid-credits scene features a cameo appearance by Chris Hemsworth as Thor, meeting with Strange, which was footage from Thor: Ragnarok. The scene was directed by Ragnarok director Taika Waititi.[78]

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017)[edit]

James Gunn, director of the first two Guardians of the Galaxy films

The Guardians of the Galaxy travel throughout the cosmos and struggle to keep their newfound family together while helping Peter Quill learn more about his true parentage and facing against new enemies.[79]

In July 2014, Guardians of the Galaxy co-writer Nicole Perlman confirmed that James Gunn would return to write and direct the sequel.[26][80] Chris Pratt returns for the sequel as Peter Quill / Star-Lord,[81][82] along with the other Guardians from the first film as well as additional cast members.[82] They are joined by Pom Klementieff as Mantis,[82][83] and Kurt Russell as Ego.[82][84] In June 2015, the film's title was revealed as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.[85] Filming began in February 2016 at Pinewood Atlanta,[86][87] and concluded in June 2016.[88] Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 premiered in Tokyo on April 10, 2017,[89] and was released on May 5, 2017.[47]

The film is set two-to-three months after the events of Guardians of the Galaxy,[90][91] in 2014.[92] One of the film's post-credit sequences hints at the introduction of Adam Warlock,[93] after Gunn originally intended for Warlock to make a full appearance in Vol. 2. He noted that Warlock could appear in future Guardians films, and is considered "a pretty important part" of the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.[94] The Grandmaster, played by Jeff Goldblum, is seen dancing in the end credits, before his appearance in Thor: Ragnarok.[95]

Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)[edit]

Peter Parker tries to balance being the hero Spider-Man with his high school life under guidance of Tony Stark as he deals with the threat of the Vulture.[96][97]

On February 9, 2015, Sony Pictures and Marvel announced that Sony would be releasing a Spider-Man film co-produced by Marvel Studios president Feige and Amy Pascal, with Sony Pictures continuing to own, finance, distribute, and have final creative control of the Spider-Man films.[9] In April 2015, Feige confirmed the character would be Peter Parker and added that Marvel had been working to add Spider-Man to the MCU since at least October 2014, when they announced their full slate of Phase Three films, saying, "Marvel doesn't announce anything officially until it's set in stone. So we went forward with that Plan A in October, with the Plan B being, if [the deal] were to happen with Sony, how it would all shift. We've been thinking about [the Spider-Man film] as long as we've been thinking about Phase Three."[98] In June 2015, Tom Holland was cast in the role of Spider-Man and Jon Watts was hired to direct the film,[27] and the next month, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein were hired to write the screenplay.[99] Additional screenwriters include Watts and Christopher Ford, and Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers.[28] In April 2016, the title was revealed to be Spider-Man: Homecoming.[100] Production began in June 2016 at Pinewood Atlanta,[101][102] and concluded in October 2016.[103] Spider-Man: Homecoming premiered on June 28, 2017 in Hollywood,[104] and was released in the United Kingdom on July 5,[105] and the United States on July 7, 2017.[106]

The film is set several months after the events of Captain America: Civil War,[107] which is eight years after the events of 2012's The Avengers.[108] In April 2016, Feige confirmed that characters from previous MCU films would appear in the film,[109] with Robert Downey Jr. confirmed to reprise his role as Tony Stark / Iron Man shortly thereafter.[110] Jon Favreau, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Evans also reprise their roles as Happy Hogan,[111] Pepper Potts,[112] and Steve Rogers / Captain America, respectively.[113] The cleanup crew Damage Control appear in the film (after previously being referenced in 2008's Iron Man and the television series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) ahead of an intended television series about them.[114][115][116] Various weaponry and artifacts from previous films are referenced throughout the film that Toomes and his crew repurpose for their weapons. In Parker's high school, one of his classes has a lesson about the Sokovia Accords,[117] and portraits of Bruce Banner, Howard Stark and Abraham Erskine are seen within the school.[118]

Thor: Ragnarok (2017)[edit]

Thor, trapped on another world without Mjölnir, must survive a gladiatorial duel against the Hulk and return to Asgard in time to stop the villainous Hela and the impending Ragnarök.[119]

In January 2014, Marvel announced that a third Thor film was in development, with Craig Kyle and Christopher L. Yost writing the screenplay,[120] and was officially announced as Thor: Ragnarok in October 2014.[47] By October 2015, Taika Waititi entered in negotiations to direct Thor: Ragnarok.[29][121] In December 2015, Stephany Folsom was hired to rewrite the script.[122] A year later, in January 2017, it was revealed that Eric Pearson wrote the screenplay, with Kyle, Yost and Folsom receiving story credit.[119] Pearson, Kyle and Yost would ultimately receive screenwriting credit for the film.[30][31] Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba and Anthony Hopkins reprise their roles as Thor, Loki, Heimdall and Odin, respectively, and are joined by Cate Blanchett as Hela.[123] Production began in July 2016 in Australia at Village Roadshow Studios,[124][125] and wrapped in late October 2016.[126] Thor: Ragnarok premiered in Los Angeles on October 10, 2017,[127] began its international release on October 24, 2017 in the United Kingdom,[128] and was released on November 3, 2017 in the United States.[129]

The film is set four years after the events of 2013's Thor: The Dark World, two years after the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron,[130][131] and around the same time period as Captain America: Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming. Producer Brad Winderbaum noted that "Things happen on top of each other now in Phase Three. They're not as interlocked as they were in Phase One."[132] Mark Ruffalo and Benedict Cumberbatch appear in the film as Bruce Banner / Hulk and Doctor Stephen Strange, respectively.[78][123] The film reveals that the Infinity Gauntlet first seen in Odin's vault in 2011's Thor was a fake,[133] while also introducing Thanos' ship Sanctuary II in a post-credits scene.[134]

Black Panther (2018)[edit]

T'Challa returns home as sovereign of the nation of Wakanda only to find his dual role of king and protector challenged by a long-time adversary in a conflict that has global consequences.[135]

Jackson, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, and Clark Gregg reprise their roles as Nick Fury, Korath, Ronan the Accuser, and Phil Coulson, respectively,[179][180] while the Skrull species are introduced to the MCU.[181] The Russo brothers filmed the mid-credits scene, which was footage supposed to occur offscreen before the first scenes of Avengers: Endgame, and features Chris Evans as Steve Rogers, Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff, Don Cheadle as James Rhodes and Mark Ruffalo as Bruce Banner. The post-credits scene shows Goose regurgitating the Tesseract on Fury's desk after swallowing it during the film's third act.[182]

Avengers: Endgame (2019)[edit]

After half of all life in the universe was killed due to the actions of Thanos in Avengers: Infinity War, the remaining Avengers and their allies must reassemble to revert those actions in one final stand.[183]

The film was announced in October 2014 as Avengers: Infinity War – Part 2.[47] In April 2015, it was revealed that Anthony and Joe Russo would direct the film and in May, that Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely would write the screenplay.[35][36] In July 2016, Marvel revealed the title would be changed, being known simply at that time as the Untitled Avengers film.[148] Its title was revealed as Avengers: Endgame in December 2018.[184] Brolin reprises his role as Thanos,[149][150] and is part of an ensemble cast featuring many actors who have appeared in other MCU films.

The film begins three weeks after the events of Infinity War, before jumping ahead five years.[187] It does not have a post-credits scene, but features the sound of an Iron Man suit being hammered at the end of the credits as a callback to the first MCU film,[188] and a teaser trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home was played after the credits in some screenings of the film a week after the film released.[189] Endgame was intended to mark the final appearances of Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark and Chris Evans as Steve Rogers.[190][191]

Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)[edit]

Jon Watts, director of Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home

Peter Parker goes on a school trip to Europe with his friends. While abroad, he is recruited by Nick Fury to team up with Mysterio to battle the Elementals.[192][193]

In December 2016, Sony Pictures scheduled a sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming for release on July 5, 2019.[194] A year later, Watts was confirmed to be returning to direct the film.[41] Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers, two of the writers of the first film, returned to write the script.[42] Holland revealed the film's title as Spider-Man: Far From Home in late June 2018.[195] Filming began in July 2018, in England,[196] with filming also occurring in the Czech Republic, Venice,[197] and New York City.[198] and lasted until October 2018.[199] It was believed that the film would be the first film in Phase Four until April 2019, when Feige first publicly stated Far From Home would serve as the final film of Phase Three.[200] He later added that it would also be the conclusion to "The Infinity Saga".[201] Spider-Man: Far From Home had its premiere in Hollywood on June 26, 2019,[202] and was released in the United States on July 2, 2019.[203]

The film is set eight months after Avengers: Endgame.[204] Jackson and Cobie Smulders reprise their roles as Nick Fury and Maria Hill, respectively, from previous MCU films.[205] The mid-credits scene features J.K. Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson. The post-credits scene features Ben Mendelsohn as Talos and Sharon Blynn as Soren, reprising their roles from Captain Marvel.[206]

Timeline[edit]

For Phase Three, directors the Russo brothers wanted to continue using real time, as was the case with Phase Two, and so Captain America: Civil War begins a year after Age of Ultron,[58] with Avengers: Infinity War set two years after that.[156] However, producer Brad Winderbaum said the Phase Three films would actually "happen on top of each other" while being less "interlocked" as the Phase One films were,[132] with Black Panther and Spider-Man: Homecoming respectively beginning a week and two months after Civil War;[107][135] Thor: Ragnarok beginning four years after The Dark World and two years after Age of Ultron,[130][131] which is set around the same time as Civil War and Homecoming;[132] Doctor Strange taking place over a whole year and ending "up to date with the rest of the MCU";[77] Ant-Man and the Wasp also set two years after Civil War and shortly before Infinity War;[166] and both Guardians of the Galaxy and its sequel Vol. 2 being explicitly set in 2014,[91][92] which Feige believed would create a four-year gap between Vol. 2 and Infinity War, though the other MCU films up to that point do not specify years onscreen.[207]

When Spider-Man: Homecoming was being developed, director and co-writer Jon Watts was shown a scroll detailing the MCU timeline that was created by co-producer Eric Carroll when he first began working for Marvel Studios. Watts said the scroll included both where the continuity of the films lined-up and did not lineup, and when fully unfurled it extended beyond the length of a long conference table. This scroll was used as the basis to weave the continuity of Homecoming into the previous films, such as The Avengers.[208] This was labeled in the film with a title card stating that eight years pass between the end of The Avengers and the events of Civil War, which was widely criticized as a continuity error that broke the established MCU timeline, in which only four years should have passed.[108][209] Additionally, dialogue in Civil War indicates that eight years pass between the end of Iron Man and the events of that film, despite the established continuity being closer to five or six years.[210][211] Infinity War co-director Joe Russo described the Homecoming eight years time jump as "very incorrect",[212] and the mistake was ignored in Infinity War which specified that its events were taking place only six years after The Avengers.[211] The public response to the Homecoming mistake inspired Marvel Studios to release a new timeline for all three phases.[209]

Reception[edit]

Box office performance[edit]

The Marvel Cinematic Universe films are the highest-grossing film franchise of all time worldwide, both unadjusted and adjusted-for-inflation, having grossed over $22.5 billion at the global box office, with Phase Three accounting for $13.5 billion of the total.[307] Phase Three is the highest-grossing phase, more than doubling Phase Two's $5.3 billion gross, with six of its eleven films making over $1 billion at the worldwide box office, including Infinity War and Endgame, which each made more than $2 billion. As a result, Infinity War became the fourth-highest-grossing film ever and Endgame the highest-grossing film ever, unadjusted for inflation. Endgame surpassed Infinity War within eleven days of release and dethroned Avatar on July 21, 2019, after Avatar held the title for nearly a decade.[308] 2019 was the first year that three MCU films made at least $1 billion each, thanks to Captain Marvel, Endgame, and Spider-Man: Far From Home.[309] By doing so, Far From Home became the first Spider-Man film to make $1 billion at the box office.[310]
