Go To

  • This was the last Marvel Cinematic Universe film distributed fully by Paramount, though their logo was contractually obligated to appear on the first two MCU installments distributed by Disney, The Avengers and Iron Man 3. This was not Paramount's first involvement in the Captain America franchise. Since 1995, it has owned the US television rights to the 1990 film, a result of being acquired by Viacom, which had held the US TV rights to the library of production company The Cannon Group. Since 1999, it has owned the 1944 Republic Pictures serial, after Viacom acquired Spelling Entertainment Group. Paramount would only own distribution rights to The First Avenger for two years; in 2013, Paramount sold its distribution rights to the MCU films it had distributed to Disney.
