In a show of strength, Marvel Studios released a “class photo” featuring most of the actors and filmmakers involved in making its strange experiment — the Marvel Cinematic Universe — a success. With Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr. and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige at the center, the group fans out with people like Brie Larson, star of the upcoming Captain Marvel and Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Michael Rooker enjoying the grand meeting.
