Kevin Feige Talks About Avengers 4 And Marvel Phase 4

Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige opens up about the company’s plans after it makes Avengers 4 and concludes Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

With Avengers: Infinity War set for release next year, questions are hovering over not only the untitled fourth Avengers film but the future of the franchise itself. More specifically, fans have wondered if the movie will be the last appearance of some of the MCU’s biggest players. Although Feige didn’t name names, he confirmed that the end of Phase 3 would also see the end of certain characters’ story arcs, a fact that he said put additional pressure on Marvel to make the next two films count.

While it’s already been established that the proposed sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming will be the first movie in Phase 4, it’s unclear where it will take the franchise. Those who hoped that it may involve other characters from Marvel’s Spider-Man comics were shot down when Sony Pictures’ Amy Pascal weighed in on the subject. Per Superherohype:

“Here’s what we’re doing: all these characters are a part of the Marvel comic book universe,” Pascal tells Comic Book. “In that universe, they are all related to each other. Kevin [Feige] makes characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. These characters are separate, except for Spidey, who belongs in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which is why he’s there.”

Feige, however, struck a very different note on the matter of additional Spider-Man characters proliferating into the MCU, replying to a question about the possibility of Venom showing up with a simple “We never say never.”

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
