The Marvel cinematic Multiverse rules were recently defined in a meeting of the Marvel Studios team. Kevin Feige revealed the meeting in a recent appearance on the D23 Inside Disney Podcast. With the Multiverse and all it’s possibilities blown open in this Phase of the MCU, some rules had to be set.
“As you indicated before we started recording, the multiverse is coming up in a big way. There’s interconnectivity there that people have already started to see and suss out and I had a meeting this morning with the whole broad Marvel Studios team going through the multiverse and the rules of the multiverse and exactly how to really deliver on the excitement surrounding the multiverse. Because like with so much with Marvel, that is a topic—when we first had Sam Jackson appear in a cameo at the end of Iron Man. I thought it would be a relatively small group of people that were excited by that and that we’d have to then educate a broader public about what that meant and who Nick Fury was, but almost instantly, if you remember, way back to the Summer of 2008: it ignited everyone’s imagination.”
“We used to not need a whiteboard because it really was just all in our collective imaginations at the studio,” Feige said. “Just before the pandemic, we started going, ‘You know, maybe we need a big whiteboard’ and then we all went into our houses.”
Without broaching into any recent spoilers, the Multiverse has been established. As yet though, the audience, (i.e. us) don’t know exactly what to expect. The possibilities are exponential. Yet, with all those possibilities comes a danger of getting tangled up in plot holes.
I personally think the Multiverse will be eventually closed off somehow by the heroes. Though, I’d guess that will be much further down the line of course. Just so that Marvel can avoid things getting too out of hand. Though, the possibility to open it back up again also exists. It’s only speculation on my part mind. For all we know, the Marvel Cinematic Universe could be permanently changed into the Marvel Cinematic Multiverse?
What do you think, are Marvel Cinematic Multiverse rules required? Are you happy Feige and his staff took the time to make sure this was done right?
