Earlier this year, Marvel announced its slate of films and streaming series for Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and while everyone’s excited for what the studio is preparing for the new phase of the franchise, fans couldn’t help but notice that there isn’t any Avengers movie set for release.
It might seem a bit disappointing that Marvel isn’t preparing a team-up movie for Phase 4, but Marvel has a pretty good reason for holding back on another movie as big as Joe and Anthony Russo’s two-part Avengers movie.
Speaking with fans during a panel at this year’s CCXP in Brazil (via BGR), Marvel Producer Trinh Tran decided to address fans’ concerns about the lack of a team-up movie in the Phase 4 line-up of the MCU.
“Our focus right now is to make sure that the titles that we’ve released in Phase 4… obviously, those stories are going to be new, exciting, different, and can connect with the audience like the other movies have been. Over 10 years ago, it’s always been our dream to get to Infinity War and Endgame level,” Tran explained.
That doesn’t mean that we won’t be getting any other Endgame- level movies though. Tran doesn’t close the possibility, saying that she hopes that Marvel will be able to achieve the same thing that it did with Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame after Marvel builds more movies and more stories for Marvel.
Guess Marvel wants to take things slow before thinking about culminating another ten years of the franchise.
Phase 4 of the MCU begins when Black Widow premieres on May 1, 2020.
