Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home have Only concluded Marvel’s Infinity Saga, and Marvel Declared all of the Forthcoming movies and TV shows that will be a Part of This fourth phase of This Marvel Cinematic Universe.
But going into Phase 4, which starts on May 1st, 2020 with Dark Widow and finishes November 5th, 2021 with Thor 4, we understand there will not be any new Avengers movies (of notice, we won’t have some fresh Guardians or Spider-Man films in Phase 4). Obviously , this isn’t the end of the Avengers and it is also not the end of epic movies which have all our favourite heroes from the MCU.
Avengers is Marvel’s most valuable franchise, the glue that holds the whole MCU together. Of course, Avengerswould not be possible with the individual stories that introduce new heroes and advance their arcs. However, you’d be a lot less interested in watching a Thor sequel, or a film that introduces a brand-new hero (or set of heroes) in cinemas on launching day without knowing in the back of your mind that it will come together down the road. The same holds for Shang-Chi or The Eternals, movies I want to see mainly since they are part of a far bigger tapestry of adventures.
Marvel’s ambitious plan all became evident with the initial Avengers film, although it was many years later that it truly delivered on its promise. Infinity War and Endgame will be both main events of the MCU so far, and they are even more enjoyable if you have seen all the other standalone films that preceded them.
Endgame sadly also marks the end of an age, with several heroes having been retired. The listing includes Iron Man and Black Widow, who died, but also Captain America, who retired into a different timeline. It is time to reconstruct the Avengers and get new team members to manage the upcoming threats. At precisely the same time, Marvel might not attempt and replicate Endgame just, in regards to building up the narrative.
“I know nothing. I literally know nothing,” McFeely said during the meeting at the end of this article, a conversation which took place before Marvel’s Kevin Feige unveiled each of the forthcoming Phase 4 titles. “I read things in Los Angeles Times and all these other websites, and I go,’Well, I do not think Marvel declared that.’ There’s all these small rumory things, but I do not know them”
“All I know is Stage 4 can go in far more instructions than any of the preceding three phases,” Markus said. “As a result, one, simply due to the doorways that three successful stages have opened. Now they have cosmic Marvel available; they have Doctor Strange cosmic Marvel available. There are so many directions you can go in now.”
He also added,”Plus if you throw in the Disney+ streaming thing… I think that it’s going to be a stage that is shaped differently than the previous ones. Something that may spread out in more directions at the same time. It’s almost inevitable when you continue making these items, and they are all connected, it cannot be on one straight line, or you’re gonna get incredibly repetitive after a while. So it must spread.”
The two writers have been involved with the MCU for a few years now, working on the last two Captain America and Avengers films, but they don’t have any very clear insight about what will occur next. But reading between the lines , it becomes absolutely clear that Marvel will continue to scatter the exact same magic in the upcoming MCU movies. They’ll all be linked in a variety of ways to a stage at which an Avengers 5 film — whether it is Young Avengers or Dark Avengers– will be inevitable.
At the same time, given how thingswere left off after Endgame,”you can’t raise the stakes,” at the present time, as Markus clarified while talking about the protagonist departures in the MCU later Endgame. What the writer was basically saying is that it’s time for a breath of fresh air in the MCU, before moving on to other intertwined stories. That includes both new heroes, and fresh crews to bring them to life.
In the next couple of years alone, Marvel will introduce The Eternals and Shang-Chi, in Addition to replacements for Captain America, Black Widow, Hawkeye, and Thor.
And of course Captain Marvel 2, Black Panther 2, and Guardians 3 were all teased for Phase 5, a stage that will also include a remake of Blade. In other words, we are about to find a brand new mix of super-powered people who are probably to cross paths with each other several years later on. We just have to wait.
