Kevin Feige Reveals More Details Regarding MCU Phase 4 and Beyond

It’s reaching to a stage of paranoia as entertainment outlets and publications have collectively decided to extract more details about MCU Phase 4 from the studio executives even when MCU Phase 3 is not yet over. But this may be due to the fact that top Marvel guys like Feige have been very reticent about sharing any of the details about MCU’s future plans.

He has been talking in pretty abstract terms and almost dodging questions on what MCU would look like post-Avengers 4. He is either razor focussed on Avengers 4 or asks the press to wait for the right time. Here’s what he has said till now:

“Avengers 4 bring things you’ve never seen in superhero films: a finale. There will be two distinct periods. Everything before Avengers 4 and everything after. I know it will not be in ways people are expecting. That’s partially because the Marvel contracts with the actors who play them, Evans (Captain America), Ruffalo (Hulk), Downey (Iron Man), Johansson (Black Widow), Hemsworth (Thor), and Renner (Hawkeye), are coming to an end.”

“I think you look at the comics as a guide, although some titles get rebooted or re-launched, the narrative exist on a never-ending continuum. But the notion we are sitting here talking and we have, what, six films yet to be released? That’s more than almost any other single production entity in town has on the docket. That should be enough.”

He added:

“Well, all I’ll say is the films we are working on now — which take us through to the Avengers Untitled in May of ’19 — that’s really all we are focusing on. And we are focusing on bringing, by that point, an unprecedented, 22-movie, continuous shared fictional narrative to a conclusion in a satisfying way.”

He finally said:

“Marvel Studios has a new direction filled with “good stories” beyond Phase 3. How we start anew and wherever we go beyond that is a story for another time. This is really about 10 years on, bringing something to a head in a satisfying and unexpected way.”

But due to pressure from fans and media, he has revealed more details, here are some of the excerpts of his interview with popular outlet Comicbook:

On Expanding the MCU’s Cosmic Side:

“I love it and that’s why we didn’t wait very long to get that, I’d say. Thor was the beginning of that, but no I love it because I love space stuff and I love the kind of stories you can tell. And Avengers: Infinity War is a great example of that.”

On MCU’s future:

I mean, all of the things you’ve seen throughout Phases 1 and 2 and now through much of 3, the new characters always are important going forward in driving, shaping the future of the MCU. I think it would be amazing, another 10 years, another 20 films or so.”

On Re-inventing MCU:

“We only focus on one step at a time but that’s all about continuing to surprise with the stories, go unexpected places, continue to play with new, fresh, unexpected genres and then introduce characters that people might have heard of or a beloved big fan base like Captain Marvel or characters like Guardians where before we made that, which people had never even heard of.”

On MCU’s Gender Balance:

“As the plan goes forward I think frankly we’ll be … you know, eventually I think we’re going to reach a time where it’s not just … listen, it would be amazing to see all of our female characters the way we have seen … most, never all male, but primarily male. I think we’re getting to the point soon where we have so many great female characters that those are just our heroes as opposed to when are they all female, all male. It’s just the Marvel heroes, more than half of which will be women.”

Well, we are sure that Marvel will do really well in the future. But let’s just enjoy the remaining Phase 3 as there is a lot more action to go. Ant-Man and the Wasp is about to be released on July 6, 2018. It will be followed by Captain Marvel on March 8, 2019, and then the big daddy of all superhero movies Avengers 4 on May 4, 2019.
