With the arrival of Captain America: Civil War, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is entering Phase Three of the franchise – so it’s a pretty natural time to look back and reflect on what’s come before. In eight years we have seen the release of 12 different comic book movies, and each one has helped lay the path that the series has taken. If we want to be really specific, however, there are really 10 key events that we’ve seen that have pushed things to the point that we see them unfold in the new film from directors Joe and Anthony Russo.

We’ve taken a look back at all of the previous Marvel Studios titles that have been released and plucked out what we believe are the key MCU moments that led some of our favorite fictional characters to where things stand in the franchise. Read on and enjoy!

Iron Man
"I Am Iron Man"
"I am Iron Man." That’s just four words, but they mean everything to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was with this pronouncement from Tony Stark at the end of Iron Man that the "Age of Heroes" was introduced to the globe. It’s true that shell head wasn’t the first superhero to emerge in this fictional world (more on that later), but it was his arrival on the scene that basically opened the door for the arrival of many new, wonderful and terrifying things. Basically, it’s the moment that sets the stage for the world in which Captain America: Civil War takes place.
