Avengers have DISASSEMBLED, until Disney say so…
Avengers Endgame was the wrap-up point of the first three phases, and the main saga. Since its release we’ve been given a range of characters that will join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including The Eternals, Fantastic Four and even a reboot of Blade.
Since Endgame we haven’t seen any updates of the Avengers assembling again within the future or any of their characters, apart from Spider-Man; but he’s generally trying to avoid this whole lifestyle all together.
We know that in phase 4 we’re receiving a whole range of new and known characters, but nothing has been shown for a future Avengers team or a potential setup for future Avengers events. Fans wonder what the future might look like without an Avengers defending the world.
In a recent Investors’ call, Bob Iger, the CEO of Disney, has stated:
“In Marvel’s case, I’m calling it the post-Avengers world,”
Within all past phases of the MCU, we’ve seen at least a single Avengers movie or a large scale crossover event (Civil War); however in Phase 4 we won’t be seeing any future assembling for a while, however we don’t know if that’s indefinite. Iger also stated:
“It doesn’t mean there aren’t films being made with characters from the Avengers. In fact, we have Black Widow coming out, in , and a Thor 4 movie in the works, and I can go on and on. We also are mining other characters like Eternals.”
Currently it seems that Marvel are depending on their individual stories rather than their crossover events, which isn’t a bad choice, we usually end up loving the characters more, during a crossover, when they have previous history with the audience.
The next Avengers will most likely be a major hit and a box office success (like always), so it’s essential to give some time and growth, for the characters and the audience, before bringing in the next major villain.
Disney+ is set to be released later this month in the US, and on 31st of March across Europe. Shows such as Loki will interact with Dr Strange’s: Multiverse of Madness and characters like Wanda will also be included.
