Avengers: Infinity War and the untitled fourth film are being billed as the conclusion of the Marvel Cinematic Universe story, but a number of fans are already looking towards the future and what may be in store for the MCU beyond phase three. In an interview with Indie Wire, Marvel Studios President discussed the plan moving forward after Avengers 4 and how the Captain Marvel film will play a big role in bringing the current story to a close.
When asked about how Marvel Studios might respond to the growing demand for female-led and directed superhero films, Feige stated that discussions on the plan after Avengers 4 aren’t going to be revealed just yet and that the focus is currently on developing the Captain Marvel film:
“We’re really focusing on ‘Captain Marvel’ and the work that Anna and Ryan are doing. It’s going to be a big part of heading towards this epic conclusion and epic finale of 22 movies over the course of 10 years. That is focus for the next six movies we have to finish and get out.”
Feige also hinted that Captain Marvel story will tie directly into the fourth Avengers film:
“Really, the focus now is on delivering ‘Captain Marvel’ and then bringing Captain Marvel’s story into the finale of everything we’ve started thus far.”

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.
