Marvel Studios Kicks Off 10th Anniversary With 'Class Photo,' Video

Wolverine Thanos Avengers Infinity War

Yesterday (Feb. 9, 2017), Marvel Studios released an epic 10-year-anniversary photo shoot featuring the heroes and villains of the "Marvel Cinematic Universe", a term coined for the trend of interconnected films following the release of Iron Man in 2008. Chris Hemsworth admits that gathering for the photo was akin to the Academy Awards, revealing how "every person had been in one or all of my favourite films". At the front and center of the picture are Iron Man depicter Robert Downey Jr. and MCU head Kevin Feige, joined by "Iron Man" leading lady Gwyneth Paltrow, Stan Lee and Jon Favreau on the front row.

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Sebastian Stan, Chadwick Boseman, Benedict Wong, Tom Hiddleston, Benicio Del Toro, Danai Gurira and Josh Brolin. Not just the actor, but also those work have worked behind the camera for Marvel's films, such as "Guardians of the Galaxy" helmer James Gunn, "Thor: Ragnarok" director and "Black Panther" director Ryan Coogler, took part in the photo shoot.

The photograph was taken from a production stage designed specifically to accommodate the 79 actors and filmmakers who are set to contribute one last time for the last installment of the 10-year storyline, "Avengers: The Infinity War". Ten years later, Marvel Studios has proven itself a box office giant with each movie undoubtedly succeeding in the box office-regardless of the central characters' obscurity.

Thirty-four-year-old forward Channing Frye has averaged 4.8 points and 2.5 rebounds in 12.4 minutes per contest this season. In Jordan and Nance, whose father played for Cleveland, the Cavs are adding a pair of young players with upside.

Of course, getting the crew together in Atlanta last October couldn't have been that hard if many of them were already nearby for Avengers: Infinity War or other MCU projects anyway.

Eighty Marvel superheroes, directors and producers united for the 10-year anniversary.

Vanity Fair's massive spreads have nothing on the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
