Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige Teases the Future of the Kree and Skrull War in the MCU
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has already had its fair share of cosmic conflicts, but there’s a big one that the films seem to have built up for Phase 4. Captain Marvel introduced that there’s been an ongoing conflict between the Kree and the Skrulls, and I don’t think what we saw in Captain Marvel is going to be the end of it.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige recently teased that the war between these two alien races may end up escalating again in the future films.
Before I go on, I’m going to throw up a spoiler warning for those of you who haven’t seen Spider-Man: Far From Home yet, because this all ties into that.
If you already saw Far From Home, you know that the final post-credit scene set up the fact there there is a lot more to come from the cosmic side of the MCU, with the real Nick Fury in space on a Skrull space station. The movie also mentioned "Kree sleeper cells," which is a big hint that the ongoing conflict with the colonizing alien empire might not be done with.
During an interview with Fandango, Feige offered a tease for the future of the Kree and Skrill war in the MCU, saying:
"Well, that Kree-Skrull war was a big part of the comics and a big part of the Captain Marvel mythology that we wanted to build into. And there'll be lots of questions like, what was Captain Marvel up to in the 20-plus years between when she flew away at the end of Captain Marvel to when she appears in Endgame? That particular line, though, is one of the handful of Easter eggs sprinkled throughout the film that Maria or Fury say that give an indication that something's different about them."
His comment on Maria and Fury is in regard to the the fact that they were actually the Skrull characters Talos and Soren. But it certainly sounds like Feige is looking to build towards an all-out Kree-Skrull war, which would be awesome to see!
Feige goes on to talk about other little references in Far From Home that point to Fury and Maria being different:
"Fury does things earlier in the film where he refers to the earth to Peter as 'your world,' instead of 'our world.' And when you watch it for the first time, it just goes by. But when you watch it a second time, knowing what's coming, it's fun to see that they're there. And Jon Watts is very good at laying in those Easter eggs.”
Would you be excited to see the upcoming MCU films lead to an all out full scale war between the Kree and the Skrulls?
