Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has confirmed that the multiverse will be the next pivotal step in the MCU.
With the 22-film Infinity saga that detailed the rise of superheroes and their battle against the great titan Thanos, the MCU has found its next step in something that was previously hinted at in Doctor Strange. Speaking to fans at CCXP, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige discussed how the MCU is operating on a whole different level after the events of the Infinity Saga, and will have to branch out. This next step pivotal step in the MCU will come in the form of the multiverse.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has confirmed that once WandaVision is over, Elizabeth Olsen’s character Scarlet Witch will jump from her own show to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which will obviously discuss the variety of alternate realities that the MCU has unfolded. Details on the Doctor Strange film are slim, but Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige did speak directly regarding how important the multiverse is.
“The multiverse is the next step in the evolution of the MCU, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is gonna crack it wide open in ways that will have repercussions for a Disney+ series just before it, that’s not WandaVision, and for movies just after it in a big, fun way.”
It appears that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will serve as a pivotal thread in the MCU’s phase 4, with the film changing everything both before and after, with obvious changes happening in WandaVision. Loki, another Disney Plus series, will focus exclusively on the Loki that got out of hand’s reach in Avengers: Endgame, which means he’s still out there. Perhaps he’s one of the leaders of an alternate reality in the multiverse? There isn’t any indication as to when the multiverse will properly be explored in the MCU, but we can imagine that the upcoming Black Widow will plant the seeds for the rest of Phase 4.
Ever since its inception, Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige have always strived to go through the Marvel backlog to find the most interesting plot points to showcase in the MCU. The multiverse as a plot thread could be a brilliant way to bring in a multitude of characters that Marvel Studios has been struggling to get into the MCU. Or, it could be a brilliant way to link the Fox properties with the MCU, without negating the legacy that those films had. One thing’s for certain: Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige won’t rest until the MCU reaches gargantuan heights.
