Just in case anyone is wondering what Marvel has planned after the untitled Avengers 4, turns out the answer is a lot. Twenty to be exact. According to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, in talking with Vanity Fair, the MCU will have a lot on its plate even after the fourth Avengers film hits the big screen.
What’s more is that these planned films could provide some new life to the already successful Marvel slate. Here’s what Feige had to say:
“22 movies in, and we’ve got another 20 movies on the docket that are completely different from anything that’s come before — intentionally.”
Many Marvel critics seem to share a similar feeling in that the MCU films are formulaic. Though others may respond with the “if it aint broke” mentality, that last bit of Feige’s statement should make fans and critics excited, or at least intrigued, for what’s to come. There’s no telling if Feige was responding to those criticisms specifically, but the word “fatigue” gets tossed around a lot these days. Switching things up only prolongs the interest people will have in these films.
Though anything beyond Avengers 4 is all speculation at this point, Feige also revealed something pretty telling about the fourth installation in that it will “bring things you’ve never seen in superhero films: a finale.”
The thought of following what is said to be a “finale” with 20 more films is perplexing. Two major films in charge of setting a new tone will be a third Guardians of the Galaxy as well as the sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming, said to usher fans into to Phase 4 of the MCU. Cryptic quotes or not, 20 more Marvel movies and a big finale in Avengers 4 is about as much as any fan could ask for.
What do you make of these of quotes from the Marvel Studios guru himself? Among those 20 films planned, which movie do you want to see happen? Let us know in the comments!

7 Comic Book Characters Who Have Lost An Eye
Everyone knows the famous expression “I can do that with one eye closed!” Well, for some people, it’s more than an expression — it’s a way of life. Everything from a paper airplane to a speck of dust can cause humans to lose an eye and sport an eye patch for the rest of their lives. Technology is improving to the point where glass eyes and prosthetics are looking more normal than ever before, and with google glasses who really cares how many eyes someone has as long as they are constantly ingesting information?
Comic book characters, even the helpless civilians, are used to bad things happening. Alien invasions or superhero wars seem to be a common occurrence in both the Marvel and DC Universe, but there’s something else that’s common too. It doesn’t matter what comic universe you look at, there is a character in every world who has lost an eye. At the end of the day, eye patches are too damn cool to only be used when a book features a pirate. Losing an eye may suck for these characters, but it usually boosts their aesthetic appeal and gives them a new emotional pain to latch onto as they move forward.
