Kevin Feige Confirms Marvel's Phase 3 Ends With SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME Not AVENGERS: ENDGAME
Like a lot of Marvel movie fans, I thought that Phase 3 of Marvel’s cinematic universe would end with Avengers: Endgame and that Phase 4 would begin with Spider-Man: Far From Home. But, that’s not the case!
During a recent interview with Bilibili, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed that Phase 3 actually ends with Far From Home, saying, "It’s the end of the third phase. You’re the first person I’ve told that to.”
When previously talking about Spider-Man: Far From Home, Feige explained:
"So much happens in [the 3rd and 4th Avengers movies], as you can imagine, and so much is affected by it that we felt what better person to hold your hand and lead you into the next incarnation of the MCU, in a grounded, realistic manner, than Peter Parker?”
I assumed the next incarnation of the MCU would be Phase 4, but apparently it’s not. I’m curious as to why Far From Home is the end of Phase 3 and not the beginning of Phase 4. Will the events of the next Spider-Man film help lead into the fourth phase? Or is it just a chapter from Phase 3? Maybe the movie is actually set before the events of Infinity War like a lot of fans have been speculating.
What are your thoughts on Spider-Man: Far From Home being the last film in Marvel’s Phase 3? Do you have any theories on why that is?
