Marvel with the help (and accusation) of Disney was able to create a strong portfolio of super heroes movies that connected to each other in a crafty way. After Iron Man who is played by Robert Downy Jr. was a successful hit, their was no stopping the MCU train after that.
The quest for the Infinity Gems which changed to Infinity Stones for the cinematic universe was a brilliant idea to use in the movies which turned every casual into a comic book fan, and comic book fans into movie goers.
