As one of the biggest and most successful film franchises of all time, Marvel's approach to developing an interconnected film universe has seemingly revolutionized the way superhero films are being made. Creating a shared universe with elements that crossover and interconnect individual films (culminating in perhaps the ultimate "team-up" film, The Avengers), this approach to filmmaking changed the way characters and storylines are developed. Marvel's foresight has resulted in a long-term plan for the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), which at this point consists of three distinct phases, each of which is to conclude with an Avengers film.
