It seems that according to Kevin Feige, Avengers: Endgame may be the last time we’ll ever get to see our team fight together onscreen. Or at least, it might be the last time they get their own film.
Endgame: End of the Cinematic Road For the Avengers?
TechRadar has just come out with a report about Kevin Feige hinting at the future of the Avengers films. Or rather, the lack of one, despite how much money the films make. It seems that as part of a documentary on Disney+ called Assembled: The Making of Eternals, Feige makes the statement below in response to being asked about Marvel’s future:
“Marvel Studios and the Marvel Cinematic Universe is now past their 10th anniversary, and with the release of the final Avengers movie, we finally completed a 22-movie Infinity Saga. Where do we go from there? Where do we start? And what we really wanted to do was two things: start fresh, with whole new characters, new storylines, but actually go back to some of the deepest, richest mythology in all of Marvel comics.”
A New Not-Avengers?
So basically, it seems like Avengers: Endgame will be the last we see of the old guard on film. Mind you, Kevin Feige doesn’t actually rule out the possibility of the surviving Avengers returning at some point in the future. However, if they do, it would be very likely in a supporting role rather than the main role. The new heroes would likely be the young ones who’ll step in to fit the shoes of the old guard, so to speak.
To be fair though, we’re already seeing that happening with the more recent Marvel shows. In The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, we see the titular heroes try their best to fill the shoes of Captain America. In Hawkeye, we see Kate Bishop start to take over from Clint Barton. Heck, we even see Yelena Belova from Black Widow make an appearance, apparently to fill the shoes of Natasha Romanov. All this seems to suggest that the time of the Avengers ended with Avengers: Endgame. Now, it’s the new blood’s time to shine as part of the new cast of heroes and heroines. All of Disney+, I might add.
