The avengers the MCU’s sub-franchise occupies an odd place in the larger series. While the original 2012 film was where this first batch of films set in and completed phase one, the same couldn’t be said for its sequels. 2015 Age of Ultron released in the middle of phase two, and although the duology of Infinity War and End of Game where the final chapters of what was later dubbed the “infinity saga“, they didn’t really shut things down. That duty went to Spider-Man: Far From Home a few months laterEnd of Game.
But in the future, expect Earth’s Mightiest Heroes to end future sagas i.e. the brand new “Multiverse Saga” and all that awaits behind the scenes . Kevin Feige spoke to MTV News on how Marvel Studios looks now avengers movies. “After Infinity War and End of Game, we thought that avengers movies are not corks,” he admitted. But what changed the tone of the studio was the many groupings in these incoming phases: from this year Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness see you next year Captain Marvel and The ant Man sequels and recently announced Love at first sight film, great teams help expand the reach of the MCU and lay the groundwork for the multiverse.
“avengers movies really should be the crowning glory of a saga,” Feige continued. “That’s really all we wanted to lay the groundwork for today. We are currently in the middle of the multiverse saga, which will culminate in two avengers movies. Both movies are due out in 2025, and earlier this week it was revealed that Shang Chi director Destin Daniel Cretton would take the helm of the first of the duology, The Kang Dynasty should be released in May this year. Both that and November 2025 Secret Wars will close out Phase 6 and the multiverse saga as a whole.
Right now, there are the seeds of a new Avengers team out there, with some pretty obvious candidates, and probably some unexpected wildcards waiting to come forward. Waiting six years to bring the avengers the return of the franchise gives weight to its return and allows kang feeling like a real Big Deal… well, bigger than Marvel movies usually are.
