After half a year without a new entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the project for Black Widow Natasha Romanoff’s prequel motion picture, is accelerating. The stand-alone motion picture begins Marvel’s Stage 4 plan for the MCU, which will consist of returning characters, Disney Plus reveals, and sequels for some of our preferred MCU characters. But the one thing that Phase 4 doesn’t include, at least today, is a new Avengers movie.
Regardless of official statements, president of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige hasn’t been totally silent on what’s next for the world’s most well-known superhero team. Throughout an interview at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con, simply a couple of weeks after Avengers: Endgame hit theaters, MTV News asked Feige if Stage 4 would begin to plan the seeds for the next Avengers films and their villain.
While nothing’s authorities yet, Feige has indicated that there are more Avengers motion pictures on the horizon. And, because Endgame became the highest-grossing movie of perpetuity last year, that should not come as much of a surprise. What we don’t know is who exactly may be on the team that Feige visualizes assembling this time around.
Feige told MTV News that “it will be an extremely different team than we’ve seen prior to […] with some people you have actually already met and some people you haven’t satisfied yet.”
Who might that include? With Kate Bishop’s Hawkeye on the way, it’s been widely speculated that she ‘d jump to the motion pictures to sign up with the team. Kate Bishop’s Avengers history is made complex. She belonged to the Young Avengers, which might definitely be an impact on the next MCU team, but she likewise led the West Coast Avengers in some current comics.
If Kevin Feige and the Marvel Cinematic Universe group choose to keep their teams to comic books only, we’re still looking at an almost unlimited list of combinations. As it turns out, with 4 or five different Avengers groups, and the group’s 50- plus-year history, a great deal of people have had a crack at saving the universe.
While the different versions of the Avengers are way too various to list, it deserves exploring which characters connect to Marvel’s upcoming films. Shang Chi, who will be presented in 2021 with Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, has actually become part of the main Avengers team in the past. Shang-Chi’s most recent stint on the Avengers’ roster remained in 2013 with Avengers Vol. 5, but he was also on the Secret Avengers prior to that. Blade, the vampire hunter who is also getting his own film at some point in the future, has likewise a member of different Avengers teams. Blade recently joined the Avengers’ primary team in last January’s Avengers Vol. 8 and he continues to be on the group in that series.
While the Eternals aren’t typically part of the Avengers, they do in some cases assist them when threats to the universe get particularly dire. Perhaps the Eternals will remain their own separate group for a couple of motion pictures, prior to they eventually sign up with the more Earth-focused Avengers.
One thing we can state with near certainty is that the characters that died in Avengers: Endgame, and completely died in Avengers: Infinity War will not be associating the brand-new model of the Avengers. Kevin Feige has said several times that he feels Endgame really was the end of something, which ending is a crucial idea.
” We had a movie this year called Avengers: Endgam e and it is very much an ending,” Feige told IGN throughout an interview at Comic-Con. “Phase 4 is about beginnings, and Stage 4 is about learning brand-new things about characters you currently believe you understand like Black Widow.”
So whatever happens next, anticipate Avengers 5 to feel more like a new production than restoring the energy of Joss Whedon’s opening salvo. That doesn’t mean that old favorites won’t belong to the team at all; since Feige mentioned people we have actually seen prior to, it promises that we might get heroes like Medical professional Strange or perhaps Thor entering a more mentor-like function for a more youthful group of Avengers that might feature the similarity Kate Bishop and a returning Peter Parker.
In the meantime though, our wild speculation about the next Avengers film will need to do. In simply a few months, Disney will launch the very first Marvel movie of 2020 with Black Widow— which comes out on May 1. Later this year, we’ll go back to the MCU with The Eternals, which must shed a bit more light on the fantastical cosmetic aspects of the Marvel universe.
Beyond that, we understand Marvel’s schedule for the next several years including motion pictures like Thor: Love and Thunder, Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness, and even Blade With the next significant team up at least 3 years away, it appears that Marvel will have plenty of time to construct up a new group of heroes and we’ll have plenty of time to think which ones will be next to take on the mantle of earth’s mightiest protectors.
