CEO of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige calls the film Avengers: Endgame the final chapter. The Russo Brothers closed out the first chapter of the MCU by bringing the Infinity Saga to an end in their 2019 film. The final Earth’s Mightiest Heroes movie will be made.
Jon Favreau and RDJ’s 2008 film Iron Man launched the MCU. Nonetheless, it wasn’t until 2012’s The Avengers that Kevin Feige’s grand vision for an interconnected series was realized. After Marvel Studios’ success, they pushed forward and expanded their universe. In the end, Endgame marked the culmination of the Infinity Saga. Consequently, this had grown exponentially during the three phases. There had previously been several disappointing endings. Nonetheless, the Russo’s managed to deliver an enjoyable conclusion for both the overall story and for some characters’ individual arcs.
After Avengers: Endgame, it would be a long time before another Avengers film was released. Fans were aware of this fact. In any case, Feige seems to be hinting that there won’t be anymore. The final Avengers movie was mentioned by the MCU architect in his commentary on Marvel Studios Assembled: The Making of Eternals. The following is the full text of his comment:
“Marvel Studios and the Marvel Cinematic Universe is now past their tenth anniversary and with the release of the final Avengers movie, we’ve finally completed a 22-movie Infinity Saga.”
After Avengers: Endgame’s release, this documentary was filmed during the filming of Eternals. There is a possibility that Feige was thinking of it as their final Infinity Saga movie or their latest Avengers movie. The producer, on the other hand, has a reputation for being extremely careful in how he answers questions. Indeed, whenever media outlets try to get classified information from him, he’s mastered the art of giving non-answers.
In this regard, the comment may have been deliberate. It’s hard to believe that Marvel Studios will stop making Avengers films in the grand scheme of things. The Avengers remain the franchise’s most recognizable superhero team, no matter how large the franchise has grown. It’s just that the release of Avengers 5 as a full film may be delayed.
Marvel Studios is meanwhile concentrating on stand-alone projects. Even though they aren’t part of the Avengers, the MCU can still make them ensemble stories. Regarding Sir Patrick Stewart’s Professor X, Doctor Strange 2 is already gearing up to be a star-studded blockbuster. Feige can continue to make crossover films while also gradually developing the next overarching storyline after Endgame by taking this creative route.
