Happy 10th anniversary, Marvel Studios!
Marvel Entertainment kicked off its yearlong celebration of its own anniversary (such a Tony Stark thing to do) by sharing a class photo. Marvel also shared a behind-the-scenes video showing the October 7 gathering for that class photo, which included both cast members and filmmakers.
Here's the video, with Robert Downey Jr. talking about his "dead center" shot, and Chris Hemsworth talking about everything "coming to a close," among other things: (OK, but why was RDJ put front-and-center with Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige instead of Marvel icon Stan Lee? It's not like Stan Lee wasn't there. He's sitting right behind Kevin Feige. Did he ask to sit there? Yeah, "Iron Man" was the first MCU movie, and it came out 10 years ago, but the character wouldn't exist without Stan Lee. Why not have all three out front together -- Feige, Lee, and Downey? Just out of respect for the guy who really started it all.)
Here's the list of actors in the photo (per EW):
Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Paul Rudd, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chris Pratt, Chadwick Boseman, Brie Larson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Holland, Sean Gunn, Hannah John-Kamen, Zoe Saldana, Angela Bassett, Jon Favreau, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kurt Russell, Danai Gurira, William Hurt, Karen Gillan, Emily VanCamp, Tessa Thompson, Don Cheadle, Dave Bautista, Michael Peña, Anthony Mackie, Evangeline Lilly, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Frank Grillo, Letitia Wright, Laurence Fishburne, Linda Cardellini, Sebastian Stan, Ty Simpkins, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Hayley Atwell, Pom Klementieff, Benedict Wong, Michael Rooker, Vin Diesel, Cobie Smulders, Samuel L.
