->'''Nebula:''' All you do is yell at each other. You're not friends.\\
'''Drax:''' You're right. We're ''family''. We leave ''no one'' behind.

In a universe full of traumatic origin stories, [[AncientConspiracy ancient conspiracies]] by [[ComicBook/{{Hydra}} neo-facists]] and [[TheUndead undead]] [[CarnivalOfKillers assassins]], and [[ComicBook/{{Thanos}} a madman]] plotting to destroy all life in the universe, there is more than danger and trauma. There are people coming together to do what's right.

* Seeing how often the actors take advantage of their celebrity and roles to make others' lives better in the real world, from [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oEx5lmbCKtY RDJ (in character as Tony Stark) gifting a boy with an arm prosthetic designed to look like Iron Man's armor]] to [[http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/03/10/chris-pratt-chris-evans-seattle-hospital-visit_n_6839454.html Chris Pratt and Chris Evans raising money for children's hospitals, followed by visiting said hospitals dressed as Star-Lord and Captain America.]] There's something heartwarming about people who play superheroes actually acting like them in real life.
* Both Creator/ChadwickBoseman and Creator/BrieLarson have talked about how important their characters are as the MCU's first black and female leads, respectively. Boseman has said he is proud to give black children a hero to look up to, while Larson has said one of her motivations for taking the role was to provide a role model for little girls. ''Black Panther'' Ryan Coogler echoed the sentiment, noting how superhero films have a reputation for usually focusing on {{White Male Lead}}s.
* Mike Colter's fellow Defenders actors all crashing his Facebook interview after ''Luke Cage'' was released. Much adorableness ensues as they all share how much they'd seen of the show, plus Colter and Finn Jones immediately hitting it off in the first time they'd actually met, and Charlie Cox sharing that he's just become a father.
* [[https://twitter.com/ChrisEvans/status/796391264480595968 This tweet]] from Chris Evans. He ''is'' Captain America.
* Combined with CrowningMomentOfAwesome, Jim Starlin, the creator of ComicBook/{{Gamora}}, ComicBook/{{Thanos}} and Drax the Destroyer [[http://comicbook.com/2017/02/13/thanos-creator-jim-starlin-wants-in-on-avengers-infinity-war/ has not only expressed excitement over]] ''Film/AvengersInfinityWar'' - despite recognizing the fact that it will be a PragmaticAdaptation [=/=] AdaptationDistillation of ComicBook/TheInfinityGauntlet ''after being informed of its development'' - but has also asked for a CreatorCameo.
** What is heartwarming about this is that Starlin has accepted that ''Infinity War'' will ''NOT'' be a verbatim adaptation of his work, which should come as a relief given how many comics creators tend to be ''very'' critical of Hollywood adaptations of their work. In addition, Starlin also wants to be a part of the work that Marvel Studios has put in.
* Joss Whedon's departure from Marvel was...not a pretty one to say the least. In fact, it seems that he's jumped ship to DC to work on a ''Batgirl'' movie and take over post-production work on ''Film/JusticeLeague''. In spite of these factors, Whedon and Kevin Feige are still on very good terms. Whedon called him up to ensure no hard feelings and Feige immediately lent his full support.
-->'''Feige:''' He called. A couple months ago, which he didn't have to do and was super cool of him and super nice of him... And we couldn't be more supportive. We want to see a Joss Whedon Batgirl film be awesome.
* Jon Favreau's continued involvement as Happy Hogan. Not only has he made Happy a memorable character in his own right, it's great to see him still involved in the franchise he helped start by directing ''Film/IronMan''. This is especially in light of the fact that he had a [[CreatorBacklash slight falling out with Marvel following the micro-management he suffered working on]] ''Film/IronMan2''.
* Arguably, the fact that the ComicBook/XMen and ComicBook/FantasticFour are ''finally'' back home after years of being with Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox. The latter team is probably more so, not only due to how Fox was so [[AshcanCopy heavy-handed about keeping the rights to the franchise]] despite its clear track record of failure with the franchise, but also the fact that if it were not for the Fantastic Four, we wouldn't even ''have'' the MCU in the first place. Just think about that: The Fantastic Four laid the foundations for the Franchise/MarvelUniverse, which of course was the inspiration for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. ''Film/IronMan'', ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'', ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'', ''Film/{{Doctor Strange|2016}}'', ''Film/{{Black Panther|2018}}'' - none of that would have been possible without the Richards family. It has all come full circle.
* Marvel Studios' [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjwjzIFcX7U tenth anniversary celebration]], which makes clear just how proud and happy all the stars are to have been a part of this massive achievement.
