It’s time for a super celebration! Today Marvel Studios is kicking off the yearlong Marvel Cinematic Universe 10-Year anniversary celebration with an iconic class photo featuring cast and filmmakers from over the last 10 years.
This super-secret mission happened on October 7, 2017, when a group of more than 80 actors and filmmakers all came together on the Atlanta, Georgia, set of Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War.

A mission of that scale would require a lot of very special people, but luckily for Marvel, they have a whole team of Super Heroes with them. Those who assembled included Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Paul Rudd, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chris Pratt, Chadwick Boseman, Brie Larson, Jeremy Renner, Tom Holland, Sean Gunn, Hannah John-Kamen, Zoe Saldana, Angela Bassett, Jon Favreau, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kurt Russell, Danai Gurira, William Hurt, Karen Gillan, Emily VanCamp, Tessa Thompson, Don Cheadle, Dave Bautista, Michael Peña, Anthony Mackie, Evangeline Lilly, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Frank Grillo, Letitia Wright, Laurence Fishburne, Linda Cardellini, Sebastian Stan, Ty Simpkins, Michael Douglas, Michelle Pfeiffer, Hayley Atwell, Pom Klementieff, Benedict Wong, Michael Rooker, Vin Diesel, Cobie Smulders, Samuel L. Jackson, and Jeff Goldblum. Whew! If any super villain had decided to cause trouble right then in Atlanta, they would have been in big trouble.
