Is the MCU the number 1 studio

Marvel Studios

Marvel Studios, LLC (1993-1996 initially as Marvel Films known) is an American film and television studio based at Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California. The company was founded in 1993.

Marvel Studios is a subsidiary of Marvel Entertainment, a subsidiary owned by The Walt Disney Company. Since 2008 the studio has produced six independently produced films, all of which are set in the same universe, the Marvel Cinematic Universe.


In 2009, Marvel tried to hire a team of writers to make their lesser-known brands better known (such as Black Panther or Iron Fist).

On December 31, 2009, The Walt Disney Company acquired Marvel Entertainment for $ 4 million, stating that their contract will not affect existing contracts. On October 18, 2010, Disney bought the distribution rights for The Avengers and Iron Man 3 from Paramount Pictures. However, Paramount's logo will continue to be used in the trailers and promotion marketing of the two films.

In June 2010, Marvel Studios set up a television division under which Marvel Animation is operated. On August 22, 2011, at Disney's behest, most of the Marvel Studios marketing department was fired because Disney has been marketing Marvel films from then on.

Marvel began to reclaim the rights for characters that had been licensed under other studios since 1990 (Blade, Daredevil, Ghost Rider, Punisher, Power Man, Eektra, with the X-Men, Fantastic Four and Spider-Man rights missing) .

Disney received full secondary merchandising rights for upcoming "Spider-Man" films through a contract following "The Amazing Spider-Man"; Sony received film participation rights to the films in exchange.

On July 2, 2013, Disney bought the distribution rights to Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger from Paramount.
