The original Avengers imagined for the cinema were very different and to understand it we must go back to a difficult period of the House of Ideas, the 90s.

During this period, Marvel was on the verge of bankruptcy and was trying to sell its film properties to various companies in an attempt to keep their heads out of the water. However, when he saw the performance of films like Spider-Man and X-Men , he decided to build his own universe.

Between 2004 and 2005, the colossus obtained a loan of 525 million dollars in an attempt to start its own film franchise. The idea? Take the scraps, or characters that had not yet sold and tur.n them into figures of certain appeal to make a franchise. That year Marvel published the list of ten properties they wanted to use to get back to the top: Captain America, Power Pack, Shang-Chi, Hawkeye, Nick Fury, Black Panther, Ant-Man, Cloak & Dagger and The Avengers.

Doctor Strange was supposed to be the Iron Man of the situation but then seeing the success of the film in 2008 became Tony Stark the pivot of the MCU we all know. A great credit for the success of all this and the arrival of Avengers: Infinity War is certainly to be entrusted to President Kevin Feige who has always believed in it.

Avengers: Infinity War

The latest film from the Marvel Universe, 'Avengers: Infinity War' promises to be the biggest and boldest of the franchise, bringing together all of the Marvel characters into one all-encompassing story.

As such, the film is shrouded in secrecy, with only a handful of people familiar with the actual plot. The Russo Brothers, using the hashtag "#ThanosDemandsYourSilence" posted a letter on their Twitter account encouraging fans not to spoil the film for others.

"We will not screen the film in its entirety until the Los Angeles premier shortly before the fim's global release."

Ben Affleck recently made one of his fans’ dreams come true.

The actor reportedly offered to pay the travel costs of his fan’s mother so they could be reunited before his passing. Makuta and his family are from Congo, but he is currently staying in Atlanta for his treatments.

Makuta was diagnosed with terminal Cholangiocarcinoma or cancer of the bile duct months ago. Just this month, the hospital shared a photo of Makuta and asked someone to come to the facility and impersonate Batman.

After learning about the tweet, Affleck decided to reach out to the hospice, and they organized a FaceTime call between the fan and the actor. Affleck is currently filming for “Triple Frontier” in Hawaii.

“Makuta didn’t recognize Ben as Batman when he first saw him via FaceTime. Ben has a beard right now and the family laughed when Makuta didn’t make the connection immediately,” a source told US Weekly.

After learning that Makuta’s mom is not with him due to some financial issues, Affleck generously offered to cover Makuta’s mom’s travel expenses. Following his conversation with Makuta, the Atlanta hospice shared their story via Twitter.

“Such a memorable day for Makuta who’s a super #Batman fan! He received a phone call from @BenAffleck today. Thanks to the widespread community support and helping us deliver on our mission: To Improve the Lives of Those We Serve,” the tweet read.

Fans of Affleck also praised the actor for his kindness. One fan said that she really hoped Makuta would get his dying wish, and she’s pleased that he did. Another supporter thanked Affleck for stepping up to the plate.

Meanwhile, this is not the first time that Affleck surprised his fans. Two years ago, the actor drove around Baltimore in his Batmobile. The move was done as part of Omaze’s video promoting the “Batman v. Superman” charity contest.

“Superman doesn’t even have a cool car to put you in. I’ve got like eight of these cars,” Affleck told his fans at that time.

Ben Affleck surprised his 11-year-old fan, Makuta, by FaceTiming with him.
