This is a big year for Marvel Studios, not only has Kevin Feige taken control of all aspects of the Marvel brand, the studio is also branching out into new territory with the imminent release of Disney+, the new streaming service which absolutely wants to utilize its current biggest brand as much as possible.
We may have one less movie in 2020 from Marvel Studios than we have been used to, but we also have to remember we are getting several limited Disney+ shows. Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki, Hawkeye, and the animated What If? are all in active development for the streaming service, and that’s in addition to Black Widow and Eternals for theaters. Then in 2021 Marvel goes back to having four movies in one year with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Thor: Love and Thunder as well as the third Spider-Man movie.
That’s a lot of Marvel content and Martin Scorsese will be so excited we won’t be able to calm him down. However, Avengers: Endgame producer Trinh Tran says that despite this expansion, the most important thing remains the quality when she spoke to CinemBlend recently, check it out.
“And so we’re going through it and we’re figuring out things to make sure that we’re going to be able to deliver the same type of movies that we have in the past, to make sure that it’s nothing below the best of our ability to create these narratives that are interesting and new and refreshing. But we are discussing and working out how to make sure that we’re able to do all this.”
The quality is so important, because I genuinely think there are a lot of fans that don’t feel that excited by what’s ahead in the MCU after the climactic Avengers: Endgame. I have a few friends who have loved the MCU thus far, but claim they feel less inclined to see anything post Endgame as there’s no ongoing hook yet. I personally don’t understand this point of view, because what we are hoping for is a new overall hook to tie us in to the next big saga of the MCU, we just don’t know what that is yet.

Ultimately if Marvel makes great movies and great Disney+ shows then I feel like the fans will all be back and excited again. However, there is no doubt that without the likes of Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, and Natasha Romanoff, things are going to feel a little differently going forward, but that’s good, right? Did we really wanna see Tony and Steve fall out again and then get back together for a threat until they were old men?
