If Captain America: The First Avengers had been the first film in the MCU instead of Iron Man, how would it have affected the MCU?

Superheroes are everywhere.

Why?

Because Tony Stark revolutionized them. What RDJ and Marvel created those ten years ago was a gamble. They were playing an intricate game that no one expected them to win.

People went out to see Iron Man because it was a different type of superhero movie.

The key to the success of that film was that it was everything superhero films that came before it weren't.

Marvel capitalized on this. They came onto the scene as the underdog with an unorthodox hero. There were no expectations.

Captain America is a clean cut hero. You can guess what happens next. He doesn't have the charm of Tony Stark or of RDJ.

If The First Avenger had been the first Marvel film of the MCU, there would be no MCU.

When will the Avengers find out that agent Coulson is still alive?

I wonder if this might happen during Civil War, as yet another straw on the camel's back for Cap to turn against SHIELD and Stark.  I could see Stark finding out and thinking, "Wow, that was actually brilliant," while Cap would feel betrayed -- especially after finding out Bucky wasn't actually
