Disney CEO Bob Iger discussed the future of the Avengers after Endgame in a recent earnings call.
Disney is in an interesting position as of now. They’re the highest-grossing studio in the world and are launching a brand new streaming service that will give a new home to their biggest franchise that is coming to a some-what impasse: Marvel. Of course we’ll be getting new Marvel films after Avengers: Endgame, which was a 10 year culmination of the MCU, but things will no-doubt be different. After all, a majority of the upcoming films in the MCU won’t be focusing on the Avengers, with new characters like The Eternals and Shang-Chi getting the silver screen treatment.
Bob Iger recently opened up about what exactly is the future of the Avengers characters after the release of Endgame, which saw the death of Black Widow and Tony Stark, as well as the retirement of Captain America.
“In Marvel’s case, I’m calling it the post-Avengers world, it doesn’t mean there aren’t films being made with characters from the Avengers. In fact, we have Black Widow coming out, in fiscal ’20, and a Thor 4 movie in the works, and I can go on and on. We also are mining other characters like Eternals.”
Avengers: Endgame obviously ushered in a brand-era of Avengers but according to the head of Disney, we’re still going to be getting more content from our favourite superheroes. Some of the key players like Black Widow, Thor, Doctor Strange, and Spider-Man will still be getting the proper theatrical expected treatment in this so-called Post-Avengers world.
After Endgame, some of our favourite Avengers will be getting the Disney+ treatment with shows like Hawkeye and Wandavision, which are tailor-made for the upcoming Disney streaming service that launches in less than week. Going off by what Disney CEO Bob Iger has to say, fans shouldn’t be worried about their favourite Avengers disappearing in a post-Endgame world.
