Looking back Marvel universe’s 10-year journey

The challenge of “looking back 10 years” is really a very hot movement and receives the response of a series of netizens. Marvel Studio is not outside this trend. Let’s look back after a successful decade, how the Marvel universe superheroes have changed through the following article

1. Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark (Iron Man)
Two very different shades of Tony Stark through the role of talented actor Robert Downey Jr. The character of Tony Stark in the film to undergo a huge change, from a playboy-like billionaire who likes to become a more intricate inner man and above all, is an Iron Man many times ready discharge yourself to save humanity. Actor Robert Downey Jr. himself has 10 emotional years, in 2008 he took the role of Iron Man in the context of leaving the rehab, whose career seemed to be defeated and suffered many skeptical eyes. The Marvel universe itself as well as the relentless efforts helped him light up the aura that was on the way out. Iron Man is now one of the most widely loved characters, and Robert has also become an A-star star in the film village with impressive and distinctive acting.


2. Chris Evans as Steve Roger (Captain America)
Chris Evans’s role as Captain America could be seen as the most intriguing character and most complex character of the Marvel universe. A patriotic soldier, a mean friend, a hero who cares about the survival of all those around him, Captain America has gone through all sorts of emotions and always leaves deep impression in the audience throughout the film. After 10 years of engagement, Chris Evans recently revealed about the Marvel universe farewell. It seems that after a long life with many ups and downs, the vulnerable hero can finally rest.

3. Chris Hemsworth as the role of Thunder God Thor
The  thunder Thor is probably the most lost character in the Marvel universe. Appeared with the image of a heroic but somewhat extravagant Asgard warrior. After 10 years with a series of events: the departure of father Odin and his brother Loki as well as the heavy demise of Asgard subjects, and the whining of long, golden hair, we will probably witness a different, darker and more fierce Thor in the Avengers: Endgame. The god of thunder is seen as the role of the life change of Chris Hemsworth. After appearing in Thor (2011), the hot Australian guy had a breakthrough from a mid-range actor to a A-star.
10 years have passed and the first names of the Marvel universe have changed dramatically not only in appearance but also in their lives and people, both on screen and in real life.

PAUL BETTANY TO PORTRAY THE VISION IN AVENGERS 2

Kudos for you who saw this coming (and my condolences to those still hoping that it would be Agent Coulson). Today, it has been announced that Paul Bettany will be playing The Vision in the upcoming Avengers movie: Marvel’s ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron. For those unfamiliar with Bettany, you may have seen him in films such as The DaVinci Code, A Beautiful Mind, and A Knight’s Tale. But he isn’t new to the realm of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, since he’s also the voice of Tony Stark’s armor AI, JARVIS.

I feel this is a logical approach for introducing The Vision for the Marvel movies, since JARVIS has been part of the MCU since Iron Man 1. Also, Bettany has the chops to pull off the wall-phasing android. If you agree or disagree, let us know in the comments.
