Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home have Only concluded Marvel’s Infinity Saga, Also Marvel Declared all of the Forthcoming movies and TV shows that will be a Part of This fourth Period of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
But going into Stage 4, which starts on May 1st, 2020 with Dark Widow and ends November 5th, 2021 with Thor 4, we understand there won’t be some fresh Avengers movies (of note, we also won’t have any fresh Guardians or Spider-Man movies in Stage 4). Needless to say, this isn’t the end of the Avengers and it’s also not the end of epic films which have all our favorite heroes in the MCU.
Obviously, Avengerswouldn’t be possible without all the individual stories that introduce new personalities 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 heroes) in cinemas on launch day without knowing in the back of your head that it’ll all come together down the street. The same goes for Shang-Chi or The Eternals, movies that I want to see primarily because they’re part of a far bigger tapestry of experiences.
Marvel’s ambitious strategy all became evident with the first Avengers film, though it was many years after it truly delivered on its promise. Infinity War and Endgame are the two main events of the MCU so far, and they’re even more enjoyable if you’ve seen all the other standalone films that preceded them.
Endgame regrettably also marks the ending of an age, with several heroes having been retired. It is time to rebuild the Avengers and get new team members to deal with the forthcoming threats. At the same time, Marvel might not attempt to replicate Endgame just, in regards to establishing the narrative.
Infinity War and Endgame writers Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely sat with The Los Angeles Times in Comic-Con (via ComicBook) and attempted to explain what could occur in the MCU’s future.
“I understand nothing. I literally know nothing,” McFeely said during the interview at the end of the article, a conversation which took place before Marvel’s Kevin Feige unveiled all the upcoming Stage 4 titles. “I read things in Los Angeles Times and each of these other sites, and I go,’Well, I don’t think Marvel declared that.’ There is all these little rumory items, but I don’t know them”
“All I know is Phase 4 will 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 phases have opened. Now they’ve cosmic Marvel available; they’ve Doctor Strange cosmic Marvel available.
He added,”Plus if you throw at the Disney+ streaming item… I think it will be a stage that is shaped differently than the previous ones. Something which may spread out in additional directions at once. It’s almost inevitable once you continue making these things, and they’re all connected, it cannot be on one straight line, or you’re gonna get unbelievably repetitive after a while. So it must spread.”
The two authors are involved with the MCU for a couple of years now, working on the previous two Captain America and Avengers films, but they don’t have any clear insight as to what will occur next. But reading between the lines , it’s completely clear that Marvel will continue to sprinkle the exact same magic in the forthcoming MCU films. They will all be linked in a variety of ways to a point where an Avengers 5 movie — if it’s Young Avengers or Dark Avengers– will be inevitable.
At precisely the same time, given how thingswere left off after Endgame,”you can not increase the stakes,” at the present time, as Markus clarified while talking about the hero departures from the MCU after Endgame. What the author was basically saying is that it is time for a breath of fresh air in the MCU, before continuing to other stories that are amalgamated. That includes both new heroes, and fresh crews to bring them into life.
At precisely the same time, a number of the old heroes will go back to tell more tales of their own, together with the list including Doctor Strange, Wanda, Falcon, and The Winter Soldier.
Not to mention that Captain Marvel 2, Black Panther 2, also Guardians 3 were teased for Phase 5, a phase that will also include a remake of Blade. In other words, we are going to get a brand-new mix of super-powered people who are probably to cross paths with each other several years down the line. We just have to wait.
