Update: This article is now out of date, you’re looking forScreenplays of the Marvel Cinematic Universe 2021

Let me up front in saying, this list is incomplete, and will likely always remain so. Marvel may not have locked down their Phase 1 scripts much, but by Phase 2, scripts were impossible to get hold of. The only reason there are more for Phase 3 is that by that point Marvel had sufficient faith in their writers to start submitting them for Academy awards.

But I wanted a complete list of all the movies, so I could plug the gaps when scripts appeared in the wild.
