As Marvel Cinematic Universe gears up for what may be the biggest superhero movie to ever grace the movie world, one cannot help but wonder what the next Phase would bring. Every other superhero that has been introduced from Phase 1 has been expected to appear in Avengers: Infinity War, a move that has much potential for future movies in Phase 4.
Marvel studio president Kevin Feige gave a teaser for what is to come in his interview with Vulture. Feige gives some crucial information about what unexpected team-ups may come up after Infinity War:
“There are so many, but I would say, both because of the characters and the actors who’ve created them, Doctor Strange and Tony Stark. Particularly in Infinity War and the movie after that, there are … unexpected team-ups”
A team up between Tony Stark and Doctor Strange could result in many interesting situations, given the duo’s similarities in intelligence and facial hair upkeep. Feige also discussed how the quality of the movies in Phase 4 will not change, even after Avengers: Infinity War, delving into the fact that the studio will always choose quality over quantity.
“I think it’s possible to have more intimate movies after that, or to have more interesting, unexpected combinations of characters after that, absolutely. It never is intentionally about ‘being even bigger.’ Arguably, one of the biggest scenes we’ve ever had in a movie was the airport battle in Civil War, and there weren’t world-ending stakes in that scene, there wasn’t an asteroid smashing into a city in that scene, but there was a conflict between the characters that made you feel something. To us, it’s less about continuing to go bigger with spectacle — although in some cases, we will — and more about continuing to go deeper with those character interactions.”
