Avengers: Infinity War hit theaters just under two months ago, but fans worldwide are already excited for what’s to come within the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Avengers 4 next year.
No film in the MCU has ever ended on such a significant note for the entire franchise’s continuity than Infinity War, and Avengers 4 looks to end the story of the first three phases of the MCU before we move on to Phase 4.
Kevin Feige was asked about Marvel Studios’ plans for the franchise after Avengers 4. Feige didn’t go too far into detail about those plans, but he did mention that the studio likes to take the series “one film at a time”:
“Between Captain Marvel finishing in two weeks, Spider-Man starting in two weeks, Avengers 4 post getting underway right now, releasing this movie… [Ant-Man and the Wasp] That’s keeping us busy over the next year.”
2018 may be the biggest year in the history of the MCU. Obviously, Infinity War was the culmination of the first 10 years of Marvel Studios, but Black Panther also came out and broke numerous box office records and became a cultural phenomenon in its own right – not to mention Ant-Man and the Wasp is about to hit theaters in less than two weeks.
But with 2019, Marvel has Captain Marvel, Avengers 4 and Spider-Man: Far From Home. Although the incredible success of both Black Panther and Infinity War will be hard to top, don’t be surprised if 2019 is yet another landmark year for the MCU.
Avengers 4 will hit theaters on May 3, 2019. Here is the synopsis for Avengers: Infinity War:
