When the ‘Avengers 4’ hits the screens in 2019, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) will be 22 films large, and just over a decade old. That’s almost equal to James Bond films in their 50-year history.
A head Marvel chief has said that the Avengers sequel may see many of their Marvel’s superheroes putting on their costumes for one last time.
Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige said that the Avengers sequel will “bring things you’ve never seen in superhero films: a finale.”
Most of the Marvel Stars’ contract will come to an end with ‘Avengers 4’, which includes Chris Evans’ Captain America, Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man, Chris Hemsworth’s Thor and Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow.
“There will be two distinct periods,” Feige said, not lessening our anxiety levels right now. “Everything before Avengers 4 and everything after. I know it will not be in ways people are expecting.”
However, it will not be an end for the MCU, as it still has the likes of popular ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ franchise.
Feige has teased that Marvel Studios is planning films that are ‘completely different from anything that’s come before – intentionally’, possibly including a James Gunn-directed Guardians spin-off.
