The Marvel Cinematic Universe a.k.a MCU began its 22-movie arc in 2008 with the release of Iron Man. The film paved way for the studio to release some of the best titles in the superhero genre, leading it to its upcoming 10th anniversary as phase 3 comes close to an end.
Marvel seems to have a celebration planned for its 10th Anniversary of the MCU. Recently, Collider’s Editor-in-Chief Steve Weintraub sat down with the studios’ president Kevin Feige to discuss their plans for the upcoming event. Although the MCU boss didn’t reveal much, he did give us a glimpse of what to expect:
“Primarily the movies we’re releasing next year are the celebration of the ten years Black Panther, obviously Infinity War and Ant-Man and the Wasp. Those are the primary focus.” Said Feige.
“In addition to that, the logo we revealed at D23. I have fond memories in 1987 of Star Wars, the first ten years, ’78-’87. They made a logo, they had t-shirts, they did small stuff. That was during the dark ages of Star Wars, where there hadn’t been anything. Thankfully we’re not in the dark ages right now with the MCU, but I think there’ll be just acknowledgements of the ten years that have come before. There will be some merchandise released and some re-releases in home video. Primarily it is all leading up to the three movies in particular and obviously, Infinity War.”
Fans will be glad to hear about the home video re-releases. But as 2018’s Avengers 4 will mark the end of phase 3, it looks Feige and other execs at Marvel Studios are already at work and are just waiting to wrap up phase 3 before making any public announcement on the movies from 2020 and so on. Earlier, Feige himself teased it to be the ‘new thing’:
“Yes. It won’t be for a while. Our focus is on the next six movies. Finishing the first three phases, getting Untitled Avengers out into the world on May 19th before publicly focusing on anything else.”
Recently, Director James Gunn also addressed the coming conclusion of MCU phase 3 and stated that “it’s the end of one long story & the beginning of another.” The start of a new arc will begin with movies like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Spider-Man: Homecoming 2 etc.
