Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home have just concluded Marvel’s Infinity Saga, Also Marvel Declared all of the Forthcoming movies and TV shows Which Will be a Part of This fourth phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
But heading into Phase 4, which starts on May 1st, 2020 using Dark Widow and finishes on November 5th, 2021 with Thor 4, we understand there will not be any fresh Avengers movies (of note, we also won’t have any fresh Guardians or Spider-Man films in Stage 4). Obviously this isn’t the conclusion of the Avengers and it is also not the end of epic movies which have all of our favourite heroes in the MCU.
Of course, Avengerswouldn’t be possible without all the individual stories which introduce new personalities and progress their arcs. However, you’d be a good deal less interested in seeing a Thor sequel, or a film that introduces a brand-new hero (or set of personalities ) in cinemas on launching day without knowing in the back of your head that it’ll come together down the street. The same holds for Shang-Chi or The Eternals, movies I need to see primarily because they’re part of a much larger tapestry of adventures.
Marvel’s ambitious plan all became clear with the first Avengers film, although it was many years after that it truly delivered on its promise. Infinity War and Endgame will be both main events of the MCU so much, and they are even more pleasurable if you’ve seen all the other standalone films that preceded them.
Endgame regrettably also marks the ending of an era, with several heroes having been retired. The list comprises Iron Man and Black Widow, who both died, but also Captain America, who retired to another timeline. It’s time to reconstruct the Avengers and get new team members to manage the forthcoming threats. At precisely the exact same time, Marvel might not try and replicate Endgame exactly, in regards to building up the story.
Infinity War and Endgame authors Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely sat with The Los Angeles Times in Comic-Con (via ComicBook) and attempted to describe what might happen in the MCU’s future.
“I know nothing. I actually know nothing,” McFeely mentioned during the meeting at the conclusion of this post, a dialogue which took place before Marvel’s Kevin Feige unveiled each of the forthcoming Stage 4 names. “I read things in Los Angeles Times and each of these other websites, and I go,’Well, I don’t think Marvel announced that.’ There is all these little rumory things, but I do not know them”
“All I know is Phase 4 will go in a lot more directions than some of the previous three phases,” Markus said. “As a result, one, just because of the doorways that three successful phases have opened. Now they have cosmic Marvel accessible; they’ve Doctor Strange cosmic Marvel accessible.
He also added,”Plus if you throw in the Disney+ streaming thing… I think that it’s going to be a stage that’s shaped differently than the previous ones. Something that can distribute in more directions at once. It’s almost inevitable when you continue making these items, and they are all linked, it cannot be on a single straight line, or you’re gonna get incredibly repetitive after a time. So it has to spread.”
Both authors have been involved with the MCU for a few years now, working on the previous two Captain America and Avengers movies, but they don’t have any clear insight about what will occur next. But reading between the lines , it becomes absolutely clear that Marvel will continue to sprinkle the same magic in the forthcoming MCU movies. They’ll all be connected in a variety of ways to a point where an Avengers 5 film — if it’s Young Avengers or Dark Avengers– will probably be inevitable.
At the same time, given how thingswere left after Endgame,”you can not raise the bets,” in the moment, as Markus clarified while speaking about the protagonist departures from the MCU later Endgame. What the writer was basically saying is that it is time for a breath of fresh air in the MCU, before moving on to other intertwined stories. Including both new heroes, and new crews to bring them to life.
In the next few years , Marvel will introduce The Eternals and Shang-Chi, as well as replacements for Captain America, Black Widow, Hawkeye, and Thor.
And of course Captain Marvel 2, Black Panther 2, and Guardians 3 were teased for Stage 5, a stage that will also include a picture of Blade. In other words, we are about to find a brand-new mix of super-powered individuals who are probably to cross paths with each other several years later on. We only need to wait.
