We already suspected that Marvel’s Avengers Infinity War and Avengers 4 – who remains untitled- are going to change things for the MCU, but just how much was left to everyone’s imagination… until now.
In a recent interview with Uproxx, Kevin Feige – head of Marvel Studios – talked about what happens after Phase Three of the MCU ends, as we all feel an ending in some kind is coming towards our way, and his response only confirmed our theories.
“Well, all I’ll say is the films we are working on now – which take us through to the Avengers Untitled in May of 19 – that’s really all we are focusing on. And we are focusing on bringing, by that point, an unprecedented, 22-movie, continuous shared fictional narrative to a conclusion in a satisfying way.”
But after that… what’s next?
“And where we go beyond that? Of course, we will go places beyond that. And, of course, we have ideas of where we go beyond that. But, really, it is all good stories. And as the series finale of Star Trek: The Next Generation said, ‘All good things must come to an end.’ And part of what makes them special, there is a finite quality to the best of fictional stories through history. And we wanted to do that at the end of our first three phases and 22 movies. How we start anew and wherever we go beyond that is a story for another time. This is really about 10 years on, bringing something to a head in a satisfying and unexpected way.”
Maybe we will say goodbye to some fan favourites coff coff Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye coff coff but, as Feige said, there are so many characters who have more stories to tell like Black Panther, Ant Man, Wasp, Captain Marvel and more who haven’t even appeared on the MCU yet.
It will be the end of an era, 10 years and 22 films, and although is sad and breaks our hearts a little, the future ahead looks bright and promising, we’ll just have to wait and see.
