The cinematographic universe of Marvel has long occupiedthe leading place in the production of films based on comics about superheroes or ordinary people acquiring super abilities. All of them are called to protect and defend the earth, fighting evil in any of its manifestations. Often the antipodes are the same characters, endowed with a similar force, which makes the confrontation more spectacular. For a relatively short period of time the audience managed to get acquainted with many heroes. However, the universe of Marvel is so rich that it is difficult to remember everyone.
Many have heard, but not everyone understands what is wearingunder itself this name. First of all, it's an American corporation publishing comics. All the Marvel characters act alone or combined in series; most of them live in a fictional universe called Earth-616.
The main competitor of "Marvel" is the company DCComics. It is much smaller in all respects - so, its main characters are Batman and Superman. According to unofficial estimates, due to the ferocious popularity of "Marvel", its cost as a large corporation is over 4 billion dollars. In 2009, The Walt Disney Company acquired it in the property.
Any story has its beginning. The exception was not the comic book universe Marvel. At the time of its formation, in the early 40s of the last century, it was difficult to call it the "Universe". The list of "Marvel" characters included Human-Torch and anti-hero Namor the Underwater. In 1941, Captain America was born, who became the sales leader in the same year.
This "big three" should not have beenstop. The first author, the founder Martin Goodman resorted to the help of young Stan Lee. With their help, there are other characters Marvel: Destroyer, Yula, Miss America. Postwar years are not too complimentary to comic heroes, the sales level is lowered to the zero mark.
Only in the early 60's the corporation will think up allfamiliar to the Fantastic Four. Her heroes did not wear suits, led an ordinary life, often quarreled with each other, and more were identified with ordinary people. The wave of recognition captured the studio completely. Encouraged by the right direction, "Marvel" creates whole series of superheroes and their antiheroes, enabling them to be brought together more often.
So there are the most famous characters Marvel: Spider-Man, Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, Ant-Man, X-Men, Daredevil, Magnetto, Venom, Green Goblin, Doctor Doom, Doctor Octopus. Perhaps, of all the most successful is the Spider-Man. This also affects the modern screen embodiment - Spider-Man is one of the first to acquire an independent film, released in 2002 with Toby Maguire in the title role. In a later period, the Guardians, the Dark Knight, the Unholy and the Black Panther were born.
The giving of superheroes to character became part of theircreation. Almost every one of them had his own story behind him, to which attention was not immediately drawn. Many, such as the young hero Spider-Man, were too contradictory and often questioned, and were also subjected to typical teenage problems. The rest suffered more from inner feelings and loneliness, and being less beautiful compared to their predecessors, looked like monsters and villains. It was this distinctive feature that played an important role in the world of the further development of the comic book industry.
Superheroes have a lot of womenBeautiful, but not inferior to the strength of sex. All of them became bright prototypes, and appeared on the pages of comics at different times. Among them are the following: Storm, Electra, Sparkle, Hulk Woman, Gamora, Scarlet Witch, Butterfly, Clea, Red Sonja, Wasp, Medusa, Lady Death Strike. Of course, this is not a complete list.
The most famous female heroine is Blackwidow. She has an excellent physical form and skills in many areas: sambo, martial arts, ballet, espionage, firearms and cold steel. This character is most often found in outgoing fantasy films, including a series about "Iron Man" and "Avengers". On the screen, she invariably embodies Scarlett Johansson.
The second, but relatively new female characterbecame Wonder Woman. Interest in it has increased in connection with the release of the film "Batman vs. Superman: At the dawn of justice," in which she appears for the first time. At the moment, four films with this heroine are planned. In 2013-2014, Israeli actress Gal Gadot signed the relevant contracts.
