I know. Obvious headline is obvious, right? Whenever a series is profitable — be it in film, book, TV, or any storytelling medium, chances are the folks involved in churning it out won’t stop if the audiences is there for it. However, with Avengers: Infinity War fresh in the theaters, and Avengers 4 already on audience’s minds.
So what does this mean for the universe going forward? Speaking with Uproxx, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige discussed what these two Avengers films are going to mean for the world going forward, and how it plays into the story.
“I will say, the entire intention of Infinity War and the next Avengers film next year was to have an ending – to bring a conclusion to 10 plus years, 22 movie narrative in a way that hadn’t been done before in this particular type of film. It’s been done before in films where there are a finite number of books, and they finish telling the story for the books, so they come to an ending. Characters like Spider-Man or Batman or James Bond or Iron Man, who have been around for so long and are always refreshed in comic books or novels or movies, you don’t necessarily get that kind of an endpoint – and we wanted to do that, which is what these next two Avengers films are. It doesn’t mean the MCU is coming to a close, by any means. But it means the narrative that started when we began 10 years ago will have a conclusion.”
So yeah, as expected, we are nowhere near the end of this world, but that doesn’t mean the upcoming film can’t be a satisfying conclusion. When all said and done, I think it’ll be a proper cap to the film franchise that had such humble origins.
