Kevin Feige Confirms Disney+ Shows Will Take Place In MCU’s Past, Present, & Future

During an interview with Slash Film, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige elaborated on how the upcoming Disney+ shows will be connected to the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Marvel Studios’ is currently developing projects for the upcoming Disney+ streaming service and unlike the shows on other platforms such as Netflix, these series’ will have more than loose ties to the larger MCU. In fact, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige explained that they are already mapping out how the journey’s the characters will take in the Disney+ shows will be interwoven with the MCU films:

“It will be MCU proper. Sometimes it will take place as Captain Marvel did in a time before current events, sometimes it will take place during. What I will say, whatever happens in those, in those shows and with characters that have been in the films, they’ll undergo transformations, not Loki necessarily, but will undergo transformations in their series and those transformations will be reflected in their next film appearances because we’ve been developing long form narrative stories for Disney plus at the exact same time that we’ve been developing a post-[Avengers: Endgame] MCU, we’ve been able to do something we’ve never done before, which is interweave them from the start, from the plant.”

Fans will have a better understanding of Kevin Feige’s post-Endgame MCU plans once the fourth Avengers film finally hits theaters in April.

A culmination of 22 interconnected films the fourth installment of the Avengers saga will draw audiences to witness the turning point of this epic journey. Our beloved heroes will truly understand how fragile this reality is and the sacrifices that must be made to uphold it.

Avengers: Infinity War united nearly every hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the showdown with Thanos and after a decade of films that proved to be an extensive roster. However, the Marvel Studios epic concluded with Thanos succeeding in his mission to acquire the Infinity Stones and use their power to erase half of the universe's population, with many of the aforementioned heroes being included among the casualties. Fortunately, the original Avengers teammates survived Thanos' decimation and it appears they will be joined by a few the new heroes who debuted since the group initially formed when they head into the second showdown with Thanos.

Although Nebula appears to be with him, the unlikely companions seem to be lost with little chance of being rescued, though it is hard to imagine that Stark will spend most of what could be his final adventure away from the action.

Captain America

Captain America Avengers Endgame Winter SoldierThe First Avenger will unsurprisingly return for the conclusion of the first decade of Marvel Studios stories and he is determined to undo Thanos' decimation. Of course, many fans are concerned that reversing the decimation could come at a great cost for Captain America considering Chris Evans' contract expired with Avengers: Endgame.

Black Widow

Standing by Captain America's side as they head to attempt to reverse the decimation, Black Widow seems confident that their plan cannot fail.

Thor

Avengers Endgame Chris Hemsworth Thor MarvelAlthough Thor nearly defeated Thanos by stabbing through the chest with Stormbreaker, The Mad Titan had enough energy left to use the Infinity Stones to heal himself while erasing 50% of the population in the universe. Now, a contemplative Thor can be seen in the Avengers: Endgame trailer and one can't fault him for reflecting on the fact that victory was almost in his grasp.

Nebula

Avengers Endgame Nebula Marvel StudiosNebula and Rocket Raccoon were the only Guardians of the Galaxy characters to survive Thanos' wrath, with former being left alone on Titan with Tony Stark. With the film expected to conclude Thanos' and Nebula having more reason than most to see the Mad Titan brought to justice, fans are hoping she will have an extensive role Avengers: Endgame.

Ronin

Ant-Man

After the mid-credits scene for Ant-Man and the Wasp, many were theorizing that the Avengers would have to rescue Scott Lang from the Quantum Realm and subsequently use the alternate dimension to travel back in time to defeat Thanos. While it appears Scott Lang managed to escape on his own, he may have brought the van containing the way to the Quantum Realm to the Avengers' front door.

Bruce Banner

While the Hulk was absent from the first Avengers: Endgame trailer, Bruce Banner managed to make a brief appearance. The brilliant scientist could be seen assessing the list of casualties of Thanos' decimation and it has clearly taken an emotional toll.
