One of the biggest problems with the internet age is our obsession with what’s coming next. No one can enjoy the now. Just bask in what we have now and then after some time – move on. What movies are next for Marvel? That is the big question for internet sites because their life is all about clicks. They need people to keep coming back to see what they can theorize after the release of a ninety second clip. Well, they will have to keep on waiting.
Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige ain’t about that life. He won’t spoil anything for you. For him, a decade’s worth of movies culminates in Avengers: Endgame. We know that there are movies after Endgame, but everyone is still playing coy. So coy, he won’t be announcing the next phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe until after Spider-Man: Far from Home.
“I don’t wanna be annoying, but I think it … In a certain way, that is also sort of a post-Endgame spoiler,” Feige said to IGN at a press junket. “I will say all of the post Comic-Con, post Spider-Man: Far From Home stuff, we … Here’s an exclusive. We’re gonna keep making movies. We’re gonna still keep making movies after these two. And we will talk about them soon after Spider-Man: Far From Home comes out.”
Naturally, the focus began to shift toward the newly acquired X-Men franchise. With two films still on the release schedule from Fox’s franchise, is Marvel in any hurry to get them involved in the MCU? Feige was asked if that is years down the road for them to be a part of their universe.
“Probably. Probably, only because, as you’ve heard me say before, until it was all done, we literally couldn’t do anything,” Feige said. “So essentially, it’s sort of Day One. But during that time, we have built and fleshed out our five-year plan of where we’re heading, the first few years of which we’ll be announcing, as I said, relatively soon, after these next two movies.”
Naturally, Marvel is in a position where they can dictate how their movies go. While some fans want a Marvel X-Men movie, they still have two movies that need to be released before they can move forward. Yes, they recently officially acquired the property, but they have been planning as if nothing had changed. Marvel can let them lay low for a bit and bring them back at the right moment. What movies are next for Marvel? A lot.
