** According to ''Film/IronMan3'' and ''Film/MarvelOneShots''' ''All Hail the King'', [[spoiler: there are at least three people calling themselves the Mandarin. The first was a warrior-king whose influence dates back to the Middle Ages. In the present, Aldrich Killian assumes the identity of the Mandarin, and then has actor Trevor Slattery pretend to be the Mandarin and take credit for the Extremis explosions.]]

* RagtagBunchOfMisfits: This is the cinematic version of the "heroes with issues". What do you expect?
** The Avengers: the founding members are a time lost living legend, a billionaire playboy who doesn't work well with others, a brilliant scientist who could level a city if he ever lost control, a PhysicalGod alien with family issues, a former assassin with guilt over her past actions, and a surprisingly well grounded secret agent who uses a bow and arrow. Later members include a pair of severely traumatized twins with super powers and a robot, with allies including a reforming criminal and a high school student with a guilt complex. You would think this is a recipe for disaster, but they have managed to save the world on their own, and together they are virtually unstoppable.
** The Guardians of the Galaxy: a human abducted as a child and raised by {{Space Pirate}}s, a former soldier of an intergalactic warlord, a LiteralMinded warrior seeking revenge, a science experiment with a penchant for blowing things up, and a talking plant. Yet they managed to do what the Nova Corps could not: [[spoiler:stop Ronan the Accuser, when he had an Infinity Stone]].
** Team Coulson: the founding members are a major Captain America/SHIELD fanboy, a BrokenAce who quit being a field agent to go to a desk job, an anti-social field agent from an abusive home, a civilian hacker who was moved around foster care her whole life, a biochemist who considers dissecting people while they're standing right beside her, and an engineer who is awkward outside the lab and cannot admit his feelings for the aforementioned biochemist. Yet they almost singlehandedly save SHIELD from [[spoiler:being destroyed after HYDRA's infiltration was revealed, even when one of their own was a member of HYDRA]].
** The Defenders: a blind lawyer with a massive guilt complex, a severely traumatized alcoholic, a man who was experimented on in prison who still mourns his dead wife, and an orphaned heir to a massive fortune who was raised in an alternate dimension. Yet they're New York City's only hope.

** It is rumored that ''Damage Control'' tv series will be {{sitcom}}, of all genres. That stays true to [[ComicBook/DamageControl the comic]], though.



** A ''ComicBook/DamageControl'' TV series stuck in DevelopmentHell is planned to be a {{Sitcom}}.

* TruerToTheText: ''Captain America: The First Avenger'' is significantly more faithful to the source material than ''Film/CaptainAmerica1990'' was, to say nothing of the 1979 films starring Creator/RebBrown.

%%** Captain America uses his classic red, white and blue color scheme (albeit with a more armored look and the buccaneer boots and head wings removed), but Hawkeye wears an [[UltimateMarvel Ultimate]]-style leather outfit instead of his iconic purple costume. He dons a much more muted color scheme in ''The Winter Soldier'', harkening to his comic counterpart's time as S.H.I.E.L.D.'s director where he wore a similar outfit. [[spoiler:Approaching the climax of the movie he breaks into the Smithsonian Museum to steal his World War II outfit, since his S.H.I.E.L.D. outfit is now stuck with them and he's on the lam]], allowing him to go back to a more vibrant color scheme. The HYDRA soldiers in both ''The First Avenger'' and ''The Winter Soldier'' also have black body armor instead of their green and yellow costumes from the comics.

** Creator/SamuelLJackson as Nick Fury, who was originally white in the comics. However, this is largely based on Fury's Franchise/UltimateMarvel incarnation, who was based on Jackson in the first place.

** Hawkeye was given a black tactical outfit inspired by the one he wore in the ''Avengers'' movie, which ironically enough, was already based on his UltimateMarvel design.

* VillainDecay: HYDRA. They're a serious threat in ''The Winter Soldier'', but they are dealt severe blows in ''Age of Ultron''. In ''Ant-Man'' and ''Civil War'', [[spoiler:they have degenerated into a generic supervillain terrorist organization]]. After two years & three seasons of ''Agents of SHIELD'', their leaders are dead, & the [[Recap/AgentsofSHIELDS3E18TheSingularity organisation is (seemingly) effectively dismantled]].

* CaliforniaDoubling:
** Played straight in many occasions (such as having Cleveland double for New York City in ''The Avengers'' and Washington, D.C. in ''Captain America: The Winter Soldier''), but averted in the four Netflix shows, each of which will be shot in New York.
** As a television show with a smaller budget, ''Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'' gets hit with this a lot.
** ''Series/AgentCarter'' naturally uses California back lots for New York in its first season, since filming period pieces in New York is extraordinarily difficult. When the series shifts to Los Angeles for season 2, they were able to do much more location shooting.



* DVDCommentary: MCU movies from ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'' onward each have a director's commentary on their [=DVDs=] and/or Blu-Ray Discs, which sometimes also features comments from other crew members and/or an actor.
