More than a decade after embarking on its plan to forge an interconnected cinematic universe resulting in 22 films and $18.8 billion in worldwide box office,Marvel is finally putting a END on one of the most historic runs in cinematic history.
But this can't actually be the endgame.
While "Avengers: Endgame" marks a great but rather an emotional end to MCU prophecy, the superheroes are not done yet. Phase 3 and phase 4 are about to begin.
Here's what we know about what's next for the Marvel Cinematic Universe after AVENGERS: END GAME.
"Spider-Man: Far From Home"
Next up for MCU is "Spider-Man: Far From Home." We've already seen Spider-Man swinging through Europe in the trailer for "Far From Home," so it's clear that he has a role to play in the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
That sequel will star Jake Gyllenhaal.However, his plan to leave super heroics behind for a few weeks are scrapped when he agrees to help Nick Fury (Jackson) uncovers the mystery of several creatures whose attacks are causing problems across the continent.
"Spider-Man: Far From Home," is the last sure-thing Marvel film on the slate, but there is plenty else in the works and others that are all but certain. But its been officially stated that “Far From Home" marks the end of third phase of marvel movies and not end game.
"Guardians of the Galaxy 3”
Disney reinstated director James Gunn after firing him last July, so Gunn will write the script for and direct the third sequel in the "Guardians of the Galaxy". Of course, he's also working with Warner Bros. on DC's "Suicide Squad" sequel. He's expected to finish that film first, with production to start in September, before returning to "Guardians 3."
There hasn't been any news regarding the cast — some said they wouldn't do the film if Gunn wasn't brought back — but it's probably safe to assume that most if not all of the cast of characters return in some capacity for the third film. This movie is surely to bring all ends loose.
"Black Panther 2"
It was reported in October last year that the director had signed on to write and direct the sequel to his Oscar-nominated blockbuster "Black Panther," which grossed $1.3 billion at the box office worldwide.
Production on the sequel is expected to start either later this year or early in 2020. They have been working on the drama which stars "Black Panther”. There have not been any plot details for "Black Panther 2" nor has there been movement on the casting front but this movie is officially to hit the theatres.
After a dramatic ending to black widow in the END GAME, it is not yet clear weather this movie will be a prequel or they will bring her back with the help of soul stone, but its quite clear that this movie will be a part of phase 4 of MCU. Production on the solo Black Widow film is set to begin in June.
Other movies also include the Eternals, Shang-chi, doctor strange 2 to come in at the end of phase 4. Quite a long wait. But MCU is expected to reach a greater platform after setting a platform as high as AVENGERS: END GAME!!!
While it’s sad we now must say goodbye to several characters we’ve grown to love and root for over the years, we shouldn’t see Endgame as simply the end. Instead, think of it as a great, wild beginning.
