Avengers: Infinity War is fast approaching, and everyone is wondering what the next move will be for the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Marvel Studio President Kevin Feige discusses the future of Marvel Studios after Infinity War.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Feige talks about how Infinity War’ reaching a climax for the MCU.
With Infinity War, it’s coming to a climax, coming to a conclusion of seeds with all the MacGuffins in various movies, and with Untitled Avengers a year later, bringing what will be that first 22 movie arc to a finality. That doesn’t mean there are no movies after that. Of course not. It means the movies after that will be changed. Again, it goes to the comics. Every great event in the 50 plus years of publishing history would have an impact on the individual books going forward after that.
Feige discusses the power of Black Panther and the louder call for representation.
I think we’re seeing it shift from a very purposeful initiative to just a fact of life, to just a way of doing business. Then there are people we hired that we’re not ready to announce in all different capacities, particularly behind the camera. As Panther has so loudly declared, [representation] can only help you, can only help you tell unique stories, can only help you do things in a new, and unique, and fresh, and exciting way. If you do that, audiences will notice it, and appreciate it, and support it.
Additionally, when questioned about the possibility of the X-Men and Fantastic Four entering the MCU, Feige made sure to point out that “it’s all about getting Infinity War finished and out, starting Captain Marvel, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Untitled Avengers, the next Spider-Man, and Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 3“.
