Ever since 2008, the Marvel cinematic universe has been hurtling forward, introducing (and reintroducing) classic characters to audiences all over the world. These heroes may not have always been the most recognizable, but they are certainly household names at this point. these films have been telling great stories with great characters for over ten years now, and they don't show any sign of slowing down. 2019 will see the release of the highly anticipated films Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame, and beyond that, there will be more sequels and new heroes coming to theaters.
Fans of the MCU are highly dedicated, and often they have their own favorite characters, whether they are heroes or villains. They may also have their own favorite films from the entire franchise, which did the unthinkable and combined every film into one shared universe, just as comic books had already been doing for years before. This kind of thing had never been attempted, and there was a lot of skepticism over whether it could ever work or not. Luckily, it did. Not only that, but it inspired a lot of other studios to try creating their own film universes (with varying results).
Real MCU fans have seen every film released by the studio, and have probably memorized some of the more memorable lines and moments from them. Everyone has their favorites, but only real MCU fans, the ones who have been there ever since the beginning, can hope to get a score higher than 80% on this quiz!
