Whilst it's not particularly surprising that the plot details of the world's largest cinematic universe are planned far in advance, the level of planning that Feige and co. go to is still extremely impressive.

When asked about this, Feige confirmed that future characters and storylines are planned out at least five years in advance to audiences seeing them appear on the big screen.

He later elaborated further when discussing the choice of the Russo brothers to direct Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame.

Stating that the plans for adapting Marvel's Infinity Saga had been in the works ever since the first Avengers film in 2012 and that the Russo's had been effectively signed on to direct since their work on 2014's Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Whilst this isn't an earth-shattering revelation in itself, it is an interesting look behind-the-scenes of the MCU and lends some appreciation to the gargantuan effort put in by its production team.
