Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home have Only concluded Marvel’s Infinity Saga, Also Marvel announced all the Forthcoming movies and TV shows Which Will be a Part of the fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
But going into Stage 4, which starts on May 1st, 2020 with Black Widow and finishes November 5th, 2021 with Thor 4, we know there will not be some fresh Avengers films (of notice, we also won’t have any new Guardians or Spider-Man films in Stage 4). Obviously , this is not the conclusion of the Avengers and it is also not the end of epic movies which include all our favourite heroes in the MCU.
Of course, Avengerswould not be possible without all the individual stories which introduce new heroes and progress their arcs. But you’d be a lot less interested in seeing a Thor sequel, or a movie that introduces a brand-new hero (or group of personalities ) in cinemas on launching day without knowing in the back of your head that it will all come together down the street. The same goes for Shang-Chi or The Eternals, films that I want to see primarily because they’re part of a much larger tapestry of adventures.
Marvel’s ambitious plan all became clear with the initial Avengers movie, though it was many years after that it truly delivered on its promise. Infinity War and Endgame are both most important events of the MCU so much, and they’re even more pleasurable if you have seen all the other standalone movies that preceded them.
Endgame sadly also marks the end of an era, with several heroes having been retired. It’s time to reconstruct the Avengers and get brand new team members to deal with the upcoming threats. At the exact same time, Marvel may not try to replicate Endgame exactly, when it comes to building up the narrative.
“I understand nothing. I literally know nothing,” McFeely mentioned during the meeting at the end of this post, a conversation which took place before Marvel’s Kevin Feige unveiled all the upcoming Phase 4 names. “I read things in Los Angeles Times and all these other sites, and I go,’Well, I don’t think Marvel announced that.’ There’s all these little rumory items, but I do not know them.”
“All I know is Phase 4 will go in far more directions than any of the previous three stages,” Markus said. “Because of, one, simply because of the doors that three successful stages have opened. Now they’ve cosmic Marvel accessible; they’ve Doctor Strange cosmic Marvel available. There are many directions you can go in now.”
He added,”Plus if you throw in the Disney+ streaming thing… I think it will be a stage that is shaped differently than the previous ones. Something which can distribute in additional directions at once. It’s almost inevitable when you continue making these things, and they are all connected, it cannot be on one straight line, or you are gonna get incredibly repetitive after a time. So it has to spread.”
The two authors are involved with the MCU for a few years now, working on the last two Captain America and Avengers films, but they don’t have some very clear insight as to what will happen next. But reading between the lines , it’s absolutely clear that Marvel will continue to scatter the same magic in the forthcoming MCU movies. They will all be linked in various ways to a point where an Avengers 5 movie — if it’s Young Avengers or Dark Avengers– will probably be inevitable.
At the exact same time, given how thingswere left after Endgame,”you can not increase the stakes,” in the moment, as Markus explained while talking about the protagonist departures in the MCU later Endgame. What the author was essentially saying is that it’s time for a breath of fresh air in the MCU, before continuing to other intertwined stories. Including both new heroes, and new crews to bring them into life.
In the next few years , Marvel will present The Eternals and Shang-Chi, as well as replacements for Captain America, Black Widow, Hawkeye, and Thor.
And of course that Captain Marvel 2, Black Panther 2, and Guardians 3 were teased for Phase 5, a stage that will also include a remake of Blade. To put it differently, we are about to get a brand-new mix of super-powered individuals who are more than likely to cross paths with each other several years later on. We just have to wait.
