When something like the Marvel Cinematic Universe turns 10, you know it deserves a big party. Producer Kevin Feige rounded up all the Marvel superheroes we have come to love in the last decade for one of the most impressive class photos ever seen.
The studio’s official Twitter account posted the photo with an accompanying video on Thursday. There are all the stars, directors and other crew members from the more than a dozen Marvel films, which all began with Robert Downey Jr and Jon Favreau’s Iron Man in 2008.
About 80 stars assembled in Atlanta on October 7, 2017 for the photo and raised a big toast to all that the studio has accomplished. In the video, starstruck Tom Holland and Chris Hemsworth voice fans’ emotions when they say how it all feels like the Academy Awards. “Every person had been in one or all of my favourite films,” Hemsworth said.

Even stars from upcoming films, such as Captain Marvel Brie Larson, were also invited for the photo. A big part of the Black Panther star cast was missing perhaps because they are still promoting their film, scheduled for release on Friday.
