It is not too surprising that a certain finality will come at the hands of the upcoming Avengers: InfinityWar and it’s still untitled sequel. Some characters have been a part of this ever-growing franchise since its start back in 2008 with Robert Downey Jr. appearance in Iron Man. Ever since the franchise has expanded with many different members joining the Avengers, but it is unavoidable that these long-term contracts would be coming to an end at some point. Not too long ago, Chris Evans confirmed that he expanded his contract to include the fourth Avengers film, which also confirmed that his contract would end with that film.
In an interview with Studio head, Kevin Feige, JoBlo.com asked him if the upcoming film may be the final chapter for some of the popular characters that have came out of the franchise. His first reaction was a very simple “Yes”, but he did expand upon his elaboration what to expect from the upcoming films.
“We have another two years of hard work to even finish these movies, and they have a lot of hard work to do, so thats all we’re thinking about, is completing those and delivering on the promise of those. Where it goes beyond that, we’ll see.”
Feige is known for having quite a long-term plan for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but also for being tight-lipped on what the future holds. Whatever we can expect from the future of this franchise, we will surely find out with the coming years. Comic-Con is just around the corner and we may also get some reveals for new characters in the upcoming films. It is expected that we may see the last of the current iterations of Iron Man, Thor and Captain America, as they have been a long-term part of the franchise and the actors contractual obligations are coming to an end. However it pans out in the upcoming films, Marvel Studios is slowly establishing plenty more new mainstays that will carry on the franchise, such as Doctor Strange and Black Panther.
