AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR to be the Swansong of Certain Heroes

As we’re now well under way with Marvel’s Phase 3 of MCU movies, Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige has been discussing what could possibly lie ahead for Phase 4 of this shared cinematic superhero realm.

Speaking to JoBlo about whether Phase 3 – which will end with Avengers: Infinity War and its to-be-titled follow-up – will actually be the swansong for certain characters, Feige gave a simple “Yes” before going on to add, “We have another two years of hard work to even finish these movies, and they [the actors] have a lot of hard work to do, so that’s all we’re thinking about, is completing those and delivering on the promise of those. Where it goes beyond that, we’ll see.”

So, who might not make it out of Phase 3 alive? The obvious choice would seem to be Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers, especially as both Winter Soldier and Falcon are waiting in the wings to take over the shield. Of course, we’ve heard the theory of Cap being killed off a couple of times already by this point in the MCU – with the Sentinel of Liberty still standing tall. It could even be that those characters who we see the last of maybe just head off into the sunset rather than getting killed off. All that we know for sure about Phase 4 right now is that the first movie of that batch of pictures will be the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel.

Feige went on to explain, “So much happens in [the next two Avengers movies], as you can imagine, and so much is affected by it that we felt what better person to hold your hand and lead you into the next incarnation of the MCU, in a grounded, realistic manner, than Peter Parker? So, coming out two months after Untitled Avengers, much of what the next Spider-Man film will be about… It was purposefully done like this. Like how the events of Captain America: Civil War impacted Peter as he was dropped off by Tony and expected to go back to continue his sophomore year, how the hell are the events of Infinity War and Untitled going to affect him as he, yes, goes back to his junior year?”

Before Phase 3 comes to an end, though, we’ve still got Thor: Ragnarok this November, Black Panther arriving February 2018, the aforementioned Avengers: Infinity War set for May 2018, Ant-Man and the Wasp booked in for July 2018, the Brie Larson-headlined Captain Marvel confirmed for March 2019, and that still-to-be-titled Infinity War follow-up to be released in May 2019.
