* WorldOfSnark: To say that snarky exchanges and witty one-liners are commonplace here would be a massive understatement.

** As mentioned in the InternetBackdraft section, there are a number of fans who complained about the favoritism shown towards the movie characters vs. the TV ones, particularly where merchandising is concerned. While it is true that the movie heroes get way more merchandise than the TV ones, Marvel generally does not make its own toys. The vast majority of the MCU products are made from other companies that have licensed the properties from Marvel, usually meaning ''they'' are the ones deciding who gets a toy and who doesn't. Additionally, a major reason why the movies have so many toys is because a significant portion of their audience consists of children, while the TV shows (''espcially'' the Netflix ones) are generally aimed at older, more adult viewers. Compounding the issue even further is that toy companies have a noted tendency to prefer characters with distinctive, eye-catching costumes, while, with the exception of ''Daredevil'', the TV shows usually tend to eschew traditional superhero costumes.

* AdvertisingByAssociation: It's pretty common for Marvel Studios movies to have the tag line "From the studio that brought you ''[[Film/TheAvengers2012 The Avengers]]''".

The Marvel Cinematic Universe[[note]]dubbed Earth-199999 of the Marvel multiverse[[/note]] is a [[SharedUniverse combined setting]] produced by [[Creator/MarvelComics Marvel Entertainment and Marvel Studios]].

Starting with ''Film/IronMan1'' in 2008, the setting has grown to include numerous film adaptations of Marvel's many comic book properties, with a main focus on Comicbook/TheAvengers and their various members.[[note]]Exceptions include the ''Film/FantasticFour'' and ''Film/XMen'' film franchises, due to the film rights being owned by Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox (though deals exist so both companies can use multi-series characters like ComicBook/{{Quicksilver}}). ComicBook/SpiderMan was added in 2015 after a deal between Marvel and film rights holder Sony.[[/note]] The setting also features secondary Marvel properties, such as the spy organization ComicBook/{{SHIELD}}, as common elements that tie the different films together.

* SuperheroPrevalenceStages: Phase One is an early stage, with each hero treated as though they are the only ones of their kind, the villains never win, and the heroes are uncompromising in their morals and convictions. Phase Two is a middle stage, with groups of heroes now forming, along with groups of villains to counter them. Phase Three is the later stage, with heroes now policing one-another, villains becoming competent enough to score real and permanent victories, and many heroes begin dying or suffering other permanent harm while others compromise their convictions when faced with possible disaster.

** The ''Defenders'' series are generally some combination of CityNoir and FantasticNoir. ''Series/JessicaJones2015'' mixes the noir elements with a PsychologicalThriller. ''Iron Fist'' is also likely to be part {{Wuxia}} like his comics are, but ''Luke Cage'' will notably ''not'' be {{Blaxploitation}} like what ''his'' comics started out as.
