Kevin Feige reveals where the MCU may go after Infinity War…

December 11th, 2017 by Marc Comments

So there’s a lot of rumour and speculation going on about what will happen after Avengers: Infinity War (there’s loads of new images from the movie below for your enjoyment)… who will live, who will die and what next for the MCU?

Well, now we have some idea thanks to Marvel Movie President Kevin Feige.

Speaking at CCXP Marvel panel, Feige teased the where the movies may go next: “If the Avengers survive, we will see more films with them in space. I love and would like to see more films in space.”

Now, given the success of Thor: Ragnarok and the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, and the fact that Thanos is the culmination of years setting up a ‘cosmic’ villain and added to this the fact that the new series of Agents of SHIELD is set in space, then we really have to say that we aren’t terribly surprised to hear this news.

That said, we really like the fact that the MCU has a nice mix of everything cosmic and terrestrial, so we’d be hopeful that, even though James Gunn, director of the GotG movies is looking after the MCU’s ‘cosmic’, we’ll still see stories set in all corners of the MCU.

In a recent interview, Ant-man and the Wasp star Evangeline Lily said:  “In Ant-Man and the Wasp, they [Hank Pym and Hope Van Dyne] are trying everything in their power to safely enter the quantum realm and return back from it because they have evidence from the first film that Scott was able to do that. If he can do it, why can’t we”

“If we do succeed in Ant-Man and the Wasp, then that does open a whole entire new multi-verse to enter into and play around in. I’m not the story creator, so I can’t tell you what they’re going to do with that. But I definitely see the potential there.” 

We’re guessing the Quantum Realm could play into this whole plan… the world is, after all, only a small part of the galaxy.

An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. The Avengers and their Super Hero allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.

Avengers: Infinity War opens on April 27th 2018 in the UK and May 4th 2018 in the US and will feature an all-star cast including Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man), Chris Evans (Captain America), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Chris Hemsworth (Thor), Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Tom Holland (Spider-Man), Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Paul Rudd (Ant-Man), Paul Bettany (Vision), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Don Cheadle (War Machine), Josh Brolin (Thanos), Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange), Benedict Wong (Wong), Chris Pratt (Star-Lord), Zoe Saldana (Gamora), Dave Bautista (Drax), Bradley Cooper (Rocket), Sean Gunn (Rocket, Kraglin), Vin Diesel (Groot), Karen Gillan (Nebula), Pom Klementieff (Mantis), Tessa Thompson (Valkyrie), Tom Hiddleston (Loki), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill), Benicio Del Toro (The Collector), Danai Gurira (Okoye), Winston Duke (M’Baku) and Peter Dinklage and Terry Notary in as-yet-unrevealed roles.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
