While the MCU is all about superheroes and villains, there's another key aspect of the movies that sets them apart from your run-of-the-mill comic book film. The technology of the MCU has long been a standout feature, and it goes all the way back to the 1940s with the Super Soldier Serum that transformed Steve Rogers into Captain America. That trend continued with the creation of the Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, and all the rest.
Technology quickly became the basis for just about everything in the MCU, and that's not a trend that looks as if it's coming to an end. Everything from the creation of Vision to Peter Parker's web-shooters makes the movies of the MCU both fantastical and somehow still grounded. The many weapons and vehicles seen throughout the films are only the beginning of the technological marvels that make the Marvel Cinematic Universe the powerhouse film franchise it's become.
This list takes a look at the MCU's technology to try and find some of the things you (probably) didn't know. It may seem like magic, but at the end of the day, all of these gadgets and gizmos are based in reality... well, reality as it exists in the MCU (which also has magic). Take a look down below, and if you see anything you didn't know about technology in the MCU, be sure to give it an upvote to see which one rises to the top!
