Original Work The Guardians (2015)

The Wonder Cinematic Universe (WCU) is an American media franchise and shared fictional universe, centered on a series of superhero films, produced by Marvel Studios. The shared universe was established by crossing over common plot elements, settings, cast, and characters.

The first film released in the WCU was The Guardians (2015), which began the first phase of films.


By 2012, Craytel had begun planning on establishing a superhero film franchise, which will share a universe. The plans were further advanced to once Wonder Studios was launched. All planning were handled by Wonder Studios. Wonder Studios president, Colt Raytel, began putting together a group of original superheroes that would make up the universe, together with other brilliant minds in the team. By the end of 2012, superheroes were already created and their storylines were on their way to being written.

On February 2013, Colt Raytel announced the universe, which was going to premiere two to three films each year, to complete its franchise phases. The first film to be announced was The Guardians, which finished its pre-production late 2012. This was the film that began the franchise. Phase 1 originally started with seven films, but throughout 2014, three additional films were added. With the success of The Guardians, the sequel was immediately developed to be part of Phase 1. Two addition solo films were added, including Superboy and Speedster.

Wonder has since stated that the studio will release 4 to 6 films each year in order to accommodate the entirety of the Wonder Cinematic Universe without putting a long hiatus between each films. This way, it would be faster to build the Cinematic Universe as a whole, and incorporate the television side of the Universe as well.


Craytel Studios Motion Pictures had distribution rights to all films under the WCU.
