Where are you getting this? Serious question.
IronMan and Incredible Hulk were already made before Disney even bought Marvel. Disney bought Marvel in Dec of 2009 but IM2 filming wrapped in Jul of 2009. That is 3 films already out before Disney bought Marvel. Thor 1 (filming started Jan 2010 so this film has been in production long before Disney got Marvel) and Cap1 (filming started June 2010, again been in pre-production before Disney got in there) are actually still distributed by Paramount.
As a matter of fact, Disney still had to buy the distribution rights for the Avengers and IM3 from Paramount, they did this in October of 2010.
Disneys first distribution with Marvel is the Avengers so how did Disney try to push Marvel to make Avengers when 3 of the individual films were already done and the other have been in pre-production/filming before Disney bought them?
When did Feige and Whedon say no? What origins films did they make with Marvel under Disney, before the Avengers?
