Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed why there won’t be any Avengers films until Phase Six.
During Marvel Studios’ San Diego Comic-Con panel, Kevin Feige revealed their grand plans for The Multiverse Saga, which will conclude with Avengers: Secret Wars in November 2025. Feige also shared that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will end Phase Four, which makes it the first phase without an Avengers title. There will also be an Avengers absence in Phase Five.
Why Are The Avengers Skipping Phases 4 & 5?
The Avengers series will return with The Kang Dynasty in May 2025, six years after Endgame hit theaters. MTV News’ Josh Horowitz caught up with Kevin Feige, who explained why we aren’t seeing any Avengers films until the end of The Multiverse Saga:
“The truth is, when we were doing Phase 1, Phase 2, and Phase 3, there were less projects over more years. They were smaller projects and individual character stories, and it felt appropriate at that point, that after every two or three years that it took for a phase, we would do an Avengers film. As [Phase] 4, 5, and 6 were coming together, there are more projects in less years — because of all the amazing stuff we’re now allowed to do on Disney+, and getting characters from Fox, Fantastic Four and Deadpool — that it felt like, certainly after Infinity War and Endgame, that we thought Avengers movies aren’t cappers. So many of our movies now — Multiverse of Madness, what you’re about to see in [Ant-Man and the Wasp] Quantumania, all our big team-up films introducing big parts of the mythology — and that Avengers films really should be the capper to a saga, which is what really all we wanted to lay the groundwork for today is say, ‘We are currently in the midst of the Multiverse Saga, which will culminate in two Avengers films.'”
Here is the synopsis for Avengers: Endgame:
The grave course of events set in motion by Thanos that wiped out half the universe and fractured the Avengers ranks compels the remaining Avengers to take one final stand in Marvel Studios’ grand conclusion to twenty-two films, “Avengers: Endgame.”
