It’s been a wild ride throughout Marvel Studios third phase of films. We got a lot of announcements very early on and with the final film in the phase heading our way in April with Avengers: Endgame, many are wondering when they would make an announcement on what we can expect in the future. It is a daunting task as Endgame may signal the end for many of our beloved characters. We do not know if we will see continuations of Thor, Captain America or Iron Man after the upcoming Blockbuster. Luckily, ComicBook.com got the chance to interview Marvel Studios CEO Kevin Feige who finally gave us some insight into when we can expect any official announcements for upcoming films.
“As we’ve been doing for years, we aren’t going to announce anything post Avengers: Endgame or Spider-Man [Far From Home] until post Endgame and Spider-Man,” Feige said. “As you know as a fan, there’s a tremendous amount of potential and a tremendous amount of additional characters and storylines and groups of characters that we’re going to keep playing with. And again, that’s a testament to Marvel and to the amount of storylines and characters and amazing, amazing runs that have been in the Marvel comics.”
It makes sense that they want to wait until Spider-Man: Far From Home is released, as they would not want to take away from that film’s marketing. It also is the first film to take place beyond Avengers: Infinity War with a character that got dusted at the end of the film. It offers itself as the perfect segway for viewers into a world where these characters return to the silver screen after “dying”. As such, they can jump on the film’s continuation to ease people into the return of Doctor Strange, Black Widow and Black Panther. The good thing is that some films have already been quasi-confirmed, so we might get the official logo reveals for The Eternals and Black Widow that will be released in 2020. Feige does point out that they do have the next six to seven years prepared but probably will not announce that far ahead. They might be taking a different approach moving forward to avoid another situation like with the film cancellation of Inhumans.
What do you think they will announce? How far ahead do you think we will find out about the films?
