It’s all led to this. No, not Avengers: Infinity War. I’m talking about the one-minute video that Marvel Studios just dropped. In it, we see tons of actors from these Marvel films thanking us, the audience, for making Marvel Studios the driving force it is. Sure, Kevin Feige and his team of filmmakers have put out these movies, but it’s only thanks to my hard-earned 10 dollars that they’ve managed to keep the lights on.

So I’d like to take a moment to say…you’re welcome, Marvel Studios. You’re welcome for showing up to each and every one of your movies in theaters, and you’re welcome for pretty much being the only reason you’ve been able to stick around for as long as you have. When Iron Man first hit theaters back in 2008, no one took you seriously…but I alone did.

In all seriousness, this is a great accomplishment for the studio. Over the past decade, they’ve blazed trails and set a precedent that virtually every other studio since then has tried (and failed) at replicating. They’ve managed to stick around by making their heroes of their films stand out first and foremost, even while people like me told them that they needed to up their villain game.

It’s only fitting that a film like Avengers: Infinity War would hit in this very year.

“An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. The Avengers and their super hero allies must willing to sacrifice it all in an attempt to defeat the power of Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.”
