Since its inception in 2008, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has garnered a huge following of both casual moviegoers and die-hard comic book fans. People have taken a liking to seeing superheroes portrayed in several movies that are all part of a grand scheme. In celebration of the release of Avengers: Infinity War, here are some things you may not know about the MCU!

He may not have a large role, but Jeremy Renner was trained by Olympic archers for his portrayal of Hawkeye. Drax the Destroyer may look like he has a simple wardrobe (he IS shirtless), but actor Dave Bautista spent three to five hours in makeup daily for the first Guardians of the Galaxy film.
