Marvel fans who were hoping for any new movie announcements any time soon are facing disappointment.
In fairness, we have been spoilt over the last few years with the incredible output from the studio. Over the last two years we’ve been treated to a staggering six new films.
Now though, Kevin Feige has confirmed that fans will have to wait until after Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home hit cinemas before we get any updates on new projects.
Feige did say there is a “tremendous amount of potential” for characters and storylines in the MCU but it’s going to be at least July when Far From Home hits theatres before we hear anything about that.
Speaking to ComicBook.com, Feige said: ”As we’ve been doing for years, we aren’t going to announce anything post-‘Avengers: Endgame’ or ‘Spider-Man’ until post-‘Endgame’ and ‘Spider-Man’.
”As you know as a fan, there’s a tremendous amount of potential and a tremendous amount of additional characters and storylines and groups of characters that we’re going to keep playing with.
”And again, that’s a testament to Marvel and to the amount of storylines and characters and amazing, amazing runs that have been in the Marvel comics.”
Feige also discussed the incredible reaction the studio saw from fans to Infinity War, saying it was “exactly” what Marvel wanted.
“We did ‘Infinity War’ and ‘Endgame’ at the same time, but those have been the longest gestating movies we’ve ever made.”
”Four years now, almost five years. And it was always about delivering on the promise that we had set up. And the way the world received Infinity War was amazing, it was exactly what we wanted.”
Meanwhile Feige has played down the impact that James Gunn has had on the MCU, insisting that his input has been “blown out of proportion”.
The Guardians of the Galaxy director was fired last year after old offensive tweets surfaced. The decision to part ways with Gunn has proved to be a controversial one, with the franchise’s cast openly slamming the decision.
Speaking to CinemaBlend, Feige explained, “[James Gunn’s] influence was Guardians. It was Guardians, it was his input on Guardians and the Avengers films, as you’ve seen in Infinity War, and on the Guardians 3 script, which we’re still using.”
