Earth-113599 also called the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a reality in which superheroes such as Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Hulk, Spider-Man, and Daredevil reside. It contains many similarities to Earth-1218, Earth-616, and Earth-1610. Containing many of the same iconic figures and organizations that can be found in those respective realities.

From an outside perspective, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a massive franchise in which all the Marvel Studios (Walt Disney) produced films and television series take place in. Starting in summer of 2008 the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been widely successful for almost a decade, generating a worldwide total of over ten billion dollars. The Marvel Cinematic Universe however, is notorious for having fractured film rights, especially between the Spider-Man, the X-Men and Fantastic Four franchises.

Its sister reality, Earth-Prime.

History

Marvel Entertainment after suffering financial problems in the turn of the century, sold off the film rights to some of their most popular franchises (Spider-Man, The Hulk, Fantastic Four, X-Men, Blade, etc) to more successful studios such as Sony Pictures and 20th Century Fox. Marvel still suffering financial issues in the new millennium was bought by Walt Disney Studios in mid 2004. Wanting however to create superhero blockbusters with the newly acquired property, Disney attempted to terminate the contracts Marvel Entertainment had previously made with other film studios, for their popular franchises.

After getting nowhere legally speaking with trying to get the rights back (Due to the other studios lack of interest in returning them) in 2005 Marvel employee Kevin Feige had the idea for a Marvel Cinematic Universe. Since the rights to Iron Man, Captain America & Thor had just reverted earlier that year to Marvel Studios control. All they needed was the Hulk, which Universal Studios was interested in selling back, to make an Avengers style team up film. Disney wanting to get something out of their purchase agree to buy back the rights to the Incredible Hulk, and announced an Iron Man and Hulk film coming in 2008. Followed by a S.H.I.E.L.D. Movie coming the next year (later changed to Black Widow and Hawkeye). On November 3rd 2005 the term for the shared movie reality was officially coined
