AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR is The Final Chapter of The Book Marvel Studios Has Been Writing The Past 10 Years
If you thought that Avengers 4 was going to be the final chapter in this current phase of Marvel films that we are in, you are wrong. According to director Joe Russo, Avengers: Infinity War will be the final chapter and after that, the next phase begins. During a recent press event, he said:
“If Marvel’s been writing a book for the past 10 years with these movies, Infinity War is the final chapter of that book. Then there’ll be a new book written, and that will be the next phase of Marvel.”
That new book will begin with Captain Marvel. After that, Ant-Man and The Wasp will be released, then Avengers 4, and then there's the Spider-Man sequel. After that, we don't really know exactly what will come next.
The fact that Infinity War is considered the final chapter of this book that Marvel has been writing the past ten years, certainly says a lot about where the story in the film is headed. The writers and directors have teased Infinity War being the end before. Anthony Russo previously said a couple years ago:
"It is intended to be the entire culmination of the Marvel cinematic universe and, in many ways, the end to that part of it."
Writer Stephen Mcfeely also said:
"This is about the culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This is about everyone getting together, or trying their hardest to get together, to fight a guy named Thanos. We’ve been teasing Thanos for many movies in 30-second clips, so hopefully all the lead up will allow us to really go to town with him and make him a villain that requires this epic level of storytelling That is the word I would use most often. It’s ridiculously big."
At this point, I'm wondering if this final chapter of the story will end on a happy note or on a sad note? With the promise of some superheroes biting the dust, it'll probably be bittersweet, unless Thanos actually snaps his fingers at the end, because that would definitely be sad!
