The Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it is coming to an end.
Avengers: Infinity War, which is now coming a week earlier than expected, and the currently Untitled Avengers 4 will deal with the years-in-the-making battle against Thanos, the Infinity Stones, and all other kinds of loose threads from the MCU's history, while perhaps killing off (or at least temporarily putting out of action) a number of its biggest heroes.
Of course, the MCU isn't actually going to end though. If anything, it's only going to grow bigger, expanding its roster of heroes and further exploring the universe. Kevin Feige previously spoke of plans through to 2028 and, while there are no announcements that far ahead just yet, we do have a new slate of untitled movies from 2020-2022, which Disney confirmed last night.
In that period, which may or may not be called Phase 4, we're getting nine Marvel films as things stand, but what will they be? They haven't given much away yet in terms of official announcements, but there are some we can either confidently predict or at least take a guess at.
NCTJ-qualified journalist. Most definitely not a racing driver. Drink too much tea; eat too much peanut butter; watch too much TV. Sadly only the latter paying off so far.
A mix of wise-old man in a young man's body with a child-like wonder about him and a great otherworldly sensibility.
