There are still many months of waiting for the release of Avengers 4, probably the most anticipated movie next year. While the theories of Infinty War are still on the lips of all fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we have already been able to get some details about the film that will arrive in the spring of next year.
Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, has had an interview with the Toronto Sunmedia, where he has spoken about the importance of Avengers 4 in the Marvel Cinematic Universe , comparing it even with the phenomenon that meant Star Wars: Episode VI: The Return of the Jedi at the time.
According to the director, the superhero film could have a similar impact at the end of the first trilogy created by George Lucas, because just as this last film meant an end point for an entire generation, Avengers 4 could become something similar to culminate a adventure that began in 2008 with the launch of Iron Man. In the words of Feige:
The best stories come to an end. ‘The Return of the Jedi’ was an ending for a long time and when he was 10 years old in 1983 it was 30 years until there was a sequel. That has not happened before in the superhero genre. A new actor enters and a new story begins immediately. We wanted to do it this way because we think that the best stories have a definitive ending to their narrative. That is undoubtedly what will happen next year with ‘Avengers 4.’
Of course, the Marvel Cinematic Universe does not come to an end with Avengers 4, because on the way we have another avalanche of films that will be starred by a new generation of superheroes and others already known. With the recent purchase of 20th Century Fox by Disney, the cast of characters will benefit from the arrival of Deadpool, the Fantastic Four and the X-Men, although at the moment Marvel Studios has no specific plans for these franchises.
