Phase One, also called Avengers Assembled, is the first part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the first part of the Infinity Saga. From 2008 to 2012, the Phase One films grossed $3.8 billion ($3,811,026,406) worldwide. The next group of films is called Phase Two.


The first set of movies introduces the main universe in which the films are set, as well as core characters such as Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye and Nick Fury, and organizations such as S.H.I.E.L.D. and HYDRA. Many of the films in Phase One focus on the Tesseract, an alien artifact that is later established to contain one of the six Infinity Stones. The final film, The Avengers, involves the villains Loki and Thanos allying to steal the Tesseract and conquer Earth, leading to the formation of the Avengers.
