Cover for Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years Book Revealed at San Diego Comic-Con

A tribute to and chronicle of how the Marvel Cinematic Universe was brought to life.

Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years Book

At the very end of the Marvel Studios: The First 10 Years, Visual Development panel at San Diego Comic-Con Thursday, a surprise was revealed, as the packed room got the first look at the cover for the upcoming Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years book.
 
Conceptual art by Ryan Meinerding (Character Designer, Concept Artist, and Marvel Studios Head of Visual Development) of the Mark 1 armor from 2008’s “Iron Man,” the film that began the MCU, was shown, which then transitioned into what that image looks like as one of the covers for the two-volume set - with the second volume’s cover featuring the Infinity Gauntlet. Both volumes come in a slip cover depicting visuals from across the 10 years of films.
 
One of the book’s two authors, Tara Bennett – who wrote Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years with Paul Terry – served as the panel’s moderator, and noted the book will be released in conjunction with the fourth “Avengers” film in 2019.
 
Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years is the only book to give fans an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at the evolution of the studio from a film production arm of a comic book company to the studio that has produced an unparalleled interconnected universe of feature films. The First Ten Years is a lavish, two-volume set that includes personal stories from the 22 movies up through and including 2019’s “Captain Marvel” and untitled “Avengers sequel.”
 
Featuring 100+ new interviews with key producers, studio heads, and cast members including Chadwick Boseman, Benedict Cumberbatch, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Brie Larson, Evangeline Lilly, Anthony Mackie, Chris Pratt, Jeremy Renner, Paul Rudd, Mark Ruffalo, Zoe Saldana, and many, many more, Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years will be a tribute to and chronicle of how the Marvel Cinematic Universe was brought to life—and an essential, collectible reference guide for fans.
 
Marvel Studios: The First Ten Years  includes a foreword by Kevin Feige and afterword by Robert Downey, Jr.
