For at least one Avengers: Endgame producer, Marvel Studios’ upcoming Phase 4 is something of a bittersweet experience.
While speaking to Comicbook.com, Avengers: Endgame executive producer Trinh Tran talked about her time working with the MCU, how long it has gone on, and how much time and effort she spent with the last two Avengers films and working with the writers and directors:
“This September will be my 12th year at Marvel and I started as an assistant on Iron Man. Being a part of this journey, to be able to be a part of Infinity War and Endgame has been crazy and the last four years have been dedicated to just these two movies alone because we did it back to back. I’ve been able to work with the Russo brothers and Marcus McFeely on the last four projects, which is a good eight years. But it is bittersweet because when I’m in the process of it all and it’s pretty … There was a period of time where it was pretty grueling because it’s two big gigantic movies and we were doing it all together.”
Later on, she recalled her experience seeing Avengers: Endgame in theaters and dug further into why all of this was so bittersweet:
“I’d never experienced anything like that before. It was like this made the four years and the process so worth it because I love the movie and I’m so happy that people love it as much as I do. It’s rewarding, but it is bittersweet because it’s come to an end, but I am very, very excited about phase four and looking forward to all of the new characters that we’re going to be introducing into the MCU and how that’s going to evolve into, knock on wood, another decade worth of storytelling that we can do with these characters.”

New Spider-Man: Far From Home concept art reveals alternate costume designs for Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio.
Marvel fans have been clamoring to see Mysterio in a live-action film ever since the release of Sam Raimi's first Spider-Man movie. Nearly two decades later, Mysterio finally made his way into a Spider-Man film with the release of Marvel Studios and Sony's Far From Home, with Jake Gyllenhaal portraying the classic Spidey foe.
While the writers incorporated elements of previous Marvel Studios films for the origin of Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio, this take on the character was largely faithful to the source material, especially in terms of the villain's costume design. However, new concept illustrations reveal alternate designs for Jake Gyllenhaal's Mysterio suit were considered, some of which are notably different from the comic book outfit with entirely different color schemes.
