The movie that is probably the most anticipated in the last 10 years for fans of Marvel and UCM; and it will certainly be an unprecedented event, but what is next Avengers: Endgame? This is what we will see after the culmination of the Saga of the Infinite.
What should we expect from the fourth phase?
From Avengers: Infinity War We are left with many questions. Two of the most important are: What will our heroes do to reverse what was done by Thanos after the click? And who will survive the story of Endgame?
Following the secrecy with which the Russo brothers have brought the issue, thousands of fan theories have come to light trying to reveal the possible answers to our first question. Although for the moment, given the proximity of the premiere and to eliminate any spoilers, we will not talk about them.
On the other hand, in the comics the story of our favorite characters can continue forever, but the reality on the screens changes completely when the characters are played by real people.
Unfortunately for UCM fans, a large part of the actors that interpret them end their contracts together with Endgame. What if! We are talking about Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Scarlett Johannson, Chris Hemsworth and Mark Ruffalo. Although it would be very unlikely and unacceptable to say goodbye to the original six avengers in the same movie, we have to accept that we will not see some of our beloved heroes on the screen again.
What we know.
Captain Marvel started the year by breaking the ticket office when he was introduced to us as the most powerful heroine at UCM. And, although Carol returned to space to get her own adventures, they have made it clear that she will join the avengers of the earth for Avengers Endgame. Proof of this is what Kevin Feige commented in an interview: «Captain Marvel is about to take the lead and be at the forefront of the entire Marvel Universe». He also commented that she would arrive as the most powerful character in the series ... at least for a while. We also know that Brie signed a seven-movie deal just like her classmates who arrived before her. So we can count on seeing a lot more of Captain Marvel in the 4 phase.
In December of 2017 there was the exciting news that Disney would absorb large portions of Fox. For those who are not big fans of Disney's monopoly, it's bad news. But for us it means we can see many new characters.
This year, Feige's dream came true. Disney officially obtained access to Fox's intellectual property, which means that in the next phases of UCM we can count on the Fantastic Four, Silver Surfer, Dead Pool and X-Men, among others. Opening the Marvel universe on the screens to thousands of new possibilities.
What movies come after Avengers Endgame?
Infinity War and Avengers Endgame were positioned as two of the most important films in current film history. And it makes a lot of sense that the next phase starts a little quieter. That is why, just about 2 months after the end of the Saga of Infinity, we can see Spiderman again with his film “Far from home”, a film that, according to the producers, will return Peter to earth, after his experience with the Avengers. And in which he will try to resume a normal life, after what happened in Endgame.
We will see our heroes of the earth, surely, with the sequels of Black Panther and Doctor Strange. Similarly, a solo film by Black Widow has been confirmed.
Meanwhile, with our space characters, we will have to see how the story of Captain Marvel unfolds. And now that Gunn is back, Volume III of Guardians of the Galaxy is very confirmed.
Currently we have seen in the cinema entities such as Ego, the Supreme Intelligence of the Kree and our favorite Crazy Titan. And it is thanks to the appearance of these cosmic threats that has made its way to the divine characters. Since April of 2018, rumors have emerged about the integration of the Eternals to UCM with their own film, which, in turn, could maintain a focus on the cosmic side of UCM. Although this is only speculation, this fact would have the potential to prepare the UCM for the presentation of new villains and amazingly powerful superheroes as it progresses.
The new streaming service
Finally, we will not only have our Marvel characters on the big screen. Disney announced that it is making television series of superheroes. These specific series will feature the same actors as the movies. In this sense, Feige has assured that the stories will be essential in the UCM and that they will directly impact the films in ways that we had not seen before. Among the series that are expected are those of Vision, Scarlet Witch, Hawkeye, Winter Soldier and LOKI! So, if we want not to lose detail about their stories, we will have no choice but to get the company's new streaming service: Disney +.
