Is the Marvel Cinematic Universe coming to an end? Is Avengers Infinity War Part 1 and 2 the final films? The answer is no.
Marvel has done a great job bringing our favourite Marvel Comic book characters to life on the big screen. The MCU began back in 2008 when the first Iron Man film was released and since then they’ve achieved a huge amount of success with every film and at the Box Office.
I don’t think the Marvel Cinematic Universe will ever end until Marvel has adapted every comic book character into a film or TV Series. With Marvel’s last two films in phase 3 “Avengers Infinity War Part 1 and 2” being released soon a lot of film critics and some fans have been thinking that these films will be the last ever MCU films.
Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios said there is no end in sight for the MCU – although it may take a different form after Phase Three. “I think you look at comics as a guide,” Feige tells EW. Although certain titles may get relaunched or rebooted, the narrative exists on a never-ending continuum. “I think there will be a finality to moments of Phase Three, as well as new beginnings that will mark a different, a very different, a distinctively different chapter in what will someday be a complete first saga made up of three phases,” Feige said.
Things always get deconstructed, right?” says Joe Russo, who has been directing the upcoming Marvel film “Civil War” with his brother, Anthony. The two brothers are also the filmmaking force behind 2018 and 2019’s Avengers: Infinity War double feature. “You build things up and people enjoy the experiences you’ve built up. But then you kind of reach an apex or you reach a climax, a moment where you go, ‘This structure is really going to start to be repetitious if we do this again, so what do we do now?’ So now, you deconstruct it. We’re in the deconstruction phase with Civil War and leading into Infinity War, which are the culmination films.”
It’s no accident that the next movies in the Marvel Studios Phase 3 line-up are Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2, Thor: Ragnarok which involve characters who are not featured in Civil War. “That’s somewhat intentional to go and explore the other aspects of the universe,” Feige says.
I think that Feige and Marvel Studios are going to try and take the MCU to another level and may replace Iron Man, Thor, Incredible Hulk, Captain America and Hawkeye with new characters such as Ant Man, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Captain Marvel and Spider Man and I think as a fan that is the right way to go because everything has to end some day and it’s good to let some of the other Marvel superheroes have a chance on the big screen.
