For fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), ‘Avengers: Endgame’ was the culmination of 11 years of watching Iron Man, Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Spider-man movies (‘Iron Man’ premiered in 2008). Like any movie, it has its share of critics. However, for most fans, it was a great story that capped off a long succession of great stories, weaving them together in a way that was mostly satisfying. Yeah, everyone has things they wish had happened or that had been different, but overall, I think it was a huge success. Fans have been clamoring for more.
In a recent interview, Trinh Tran, executive produce of ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ and ‘Avengers: Endgame’ had this to say about a future ‘Endgame’-level movie:
“Our focus right now is to make sure that the titles that we’ve released in Phase 4… obviously those stories are going to be new, exciting, different and can connect with the audience like the other movies have been. Over 10 years ago, it’s always been our dream to get to ‘Infinity War’ and ‘Endgame’ level. We didn’t know obviously where that was going to go at the start of the studio, but it’s incredible to know that we were able to accomplish that. Now it’d be amazing if we could get to that level 10 years later, so I think it’s a dream to continue doing that and build upon the MCU and the connective tissue that we have. And now with obviously our Disney+ side and the shows and how our characters are venturing into that world and how that’s gonna lead to the future and more franchises and more stories and more properties and their connective tissue to the rest of the MCU, it would be amazing to do something like this 10 years later.”
It makes sense. If we want to see an amalgam of movies coming together to a climax like ‘Endgame,’ we’ll need to wait for them all to be made. Hopefully, Disney/Marvel can make lighting strike twice!
