Every year or so, it seems like fans like to discuss whether or not the Marvel Cinematic Universe can last under the weight of its own films. However, 16 films in (soon to be 17), it shows no signs of slowing down.
Speaking with ComicBook.com, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige teased that we can expect the next films will continue to feel very different, saying:
“All of the next films by design have been built to be very different, to be very unique. Ragnarok, Black Panther, certainly as we get into Infinity War and even Ant-Man and the Wasp, which is nearing the end of their production period right now. All four of those movies are distinct and special and I can’t wait for people to see. Thankfully they get to see Ragnarok starting now.”
This is no joke. Thor: Ragnarok plays out like an ‘80s sci-fi comedy, Black Panther looks like something we haven’t seen before (though what that something is is still up in the air), Infinity War is likely to be more sci-fi in nature, and Ant-Man and the Wasp may very well continue on with its more heist approach, if the first film is any indication.
The approach of changing up the genre in between films is one that’s treated them well, and it’s a trend we can only see continuing until they stop making these movies altogether — which likely isn’t happening any time soon.
