Avengers: Infinity War – the beginning of an end.

Infinity War is upon us, with less than a week left before it opens in theaters everywhere in the World. One of the longest conclusion to a set of movies for the past 10 years, starting with Iron Man in 2008.

History

Marvel started as an independent studio back in 2008 and produced their first movie Iron Man with Jon Favreau as the Director and Actor.
