Marvel’s Infinity Saga came to a close this past April with the release of Avengers: Endgame. After the devastating events of that film, fans were left wondering what was next for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In a recent interview with Comicbook.com, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has revealed that the future of the MCU lies in more than just one universe. He was quoted as saying:
“When we first started the MCU, it was all about Tony Stark. Introduce the world to Tony Stark and that Iron Man armor, Then [we] went on to teach people what Asgardians were and learn about super soldiers then bring them together in Avengers. I’ve always loved space movies and I’ve always loved big intergalactic tales, which is why we did Guardians and the audience came with us so we could do a movie like Endgame. I always wanted to do time travel, which we finally got to do in Endgame. The multiverse is the next step in the evolution of the MCU and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is going to crack it open in ways that will have repercussions for a Disney+ series before it that’s not WandaVision and for movies after it in a big fun way.”
When he refers to an unnamed Disney+ series, we are pretty sure he’s talking about the upcoming Loki show. While that series is slated to hit the streaming service in the Spring of 2021, before the Doctor Strange sequel debuts that May, the series is set to follow Loki as he bounces around through time. It wouldn’t be too far fetched to expect time travel to be a factor in weaving these stories together.
Our next venture into the MCU is coming on May 1st of next year with the release of Black Widow which we were recently treated to the first trailer for.
