Marvel Boss Says What Follows Phase 3 Of The MCU Will Be "Very Different"

"It might be a new thing."


For nearly a decade the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been structured via 'phases', with overlapping characters and storylines. The MCU is currently in Phase 3, but now Marvel boss Kevin Feige has revealed that what follows might be very different.

Speaking to Collider, Feige said that the studio was currently focused on completing Phase 3 in 2019, but hinted that the Marvel universe could go in a different direction after this.

"Right now, [it starts] with where we wanna take the stories," he said. "Certainly as we get to Avengers: Infinity War there will be a sense of a climax. By the time we're at the untitled Avengers 4, 22 movies will have encompassed the first three phases of the MCU. And what happens after that will be very different. I don't know if it's Phase 4, it might be a new thing.

"We have an idea [of what the MCU looks like post-Infinity War], and it's gonna be very, very different."

Avengers: Infinity War is currently in production, and hits theaters on May 4, 2018. The movie was originally set to be released in two parts, shot back-to-back. However, the fourth Avengers movie has since become a separate film, and last week it was confirmed that it wouldn't enter production until after Infinity War wraps. Both movies will be directed by the Russo brothers, who helmed the last two Captain America films.

In related news, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn revealed last week that he would be back to make the third movie in Marvel's space adventure series. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 arrives next week, and the Guardians team will also appear in Infinity War.
