Avengers: Infinity War and the untitled sequel are being promoted as the culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe story to date and it appears several of our heroes will be irrevocably changed by their showdown with the powerful Thanos. In an interview with Collider, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige teases several character evolutions in the next two Avengers films.
Kevin Feige briefly discussed how many of our heroes will be changed by the events of the next two Avengers films while discussing the emotional and physical transformations experienced by the titular hero of Thor: Ragnarok.
“There’ll be lots of evolutions for lots of characters over the course of the next two Avengers films.”
Fans have already been given a glimpse of the physical changes our heroes will undergo – including a bearded Captain America, a blond Black Widow, and new suits for certain characters including Spider-Man – but fans must still wait to see how they will be emotionally changed by the battle with the Mad Titan.
As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Sean Gunn, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Sebastian Stan, Chadwick Boseman, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Tom Hiddleston, Tessa Thompson, Benicio Del Toro, Danai Gurira and Josh Brolin.

7 Big Potential Changes For The Marvel Cinematic Universe After ‘Avengers 4’
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has officially said he’s holding back on reveals about the Marvel Cinematic Universe until after Avengers 4. With Feige holding information close to the chest, it seems likely big changes are set to hit the MCU soon.
Now that the MCU is more than fifteen films strong, I expect new characters and dramatic team shakeups soon so fans stay invested. There are a lot of things I wish could happen to the MCU, but I’m only talking about things I consider a real possibility here. Yeah, I’d love for the X-Men and the Fantastic Four to join the MCU, but I don’t expect that anytime soon. At the moment, Captain America and Wolverine will probably never hit the trenches together, but just know that would be number 1 on my list if Fox and Disney had a better relationship.
