Recently, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige made a statement that some fans took out of context. Here’s the statement below when askeda bout closing the first three phases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe:

“And where we go beyond that? Of course we will go places beyond that. And, of course, we have ideas of where we go beyond that. But, really, it is all good stories. And as the series finale of Star Trek: The Next Generation said, ‘All good things must come to an end.’ And part of what makes them special, there is a finite quality to the best of fictional stories through history. And we wanted to do that at the end of our first three phases and 22 movies. 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 does this mean the MCU as a whole is ending? Of course not. No way, Marvel is saying no to all that money and growth potential. Guardians of the Galaxy writer-director James Gunn took to Twitter to clarify that point, saying:

So as stated in the past, Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 are set to kick the Marvel Cinematic Universe off in a whole new direction — a direction that may be devoid of many of the elements we have grown comfortable with over the years.
