Here are my thoughts: before the official Marvel Cinematic Universe, starting with the 2008 movie Iron Man, there was another, starting with the 2000 movie X-Men.

Consisting of the X-Men, Spider-Man, and Fantastic Four film series, they make up a first shared movie universe for the Marvel characters about eight years in advance to the famous MCU.

Now, hear's where my theory gets a little interesting. Following the Days of Future Past time-travel event, all the film series are replaced by their more respective reboot The Amazing Spider-Man film series, Fantastic 4 solo film, and an additional Deadpool films.
