MCU is at its peak right now, continuing to build on the franchise that began in 2008 with Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man. Ever since then, noteworthy actors like Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Benedict Cumberbatch and many others have been a part of this universe.
But what happens when some of these major actors have to move on with their careers, leaving their superhero legacy? I’m sure a lot of fans have this question in their minds. The Head of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige recently addressed this question during an interview where he was asked about future of the franchise. His answer was pretty simple and it was: comic books.
Feige went on to express the importance of comics saying that comics have been around since more than sixty years as compared to the cinematic universe which is just about ten years old. He stated their modern-day importance and addressed their popularity among fans.
“I talk about 10 years of movies but there’s 50 plus years of comics which are as relevant and popular among fans,” Feige said. He also stated that most of these heroes still have a lot of years in them and he really isn’t worried about the future of MCU. With the news of Evans, Hemsworth and Downey leaving MCU due to the end of their contracts, the next phase of Marvel would be spear-headed by characters like Spider-Man, Black Panther and Captain Marvel.
Both Scarlett Johannson aka The Black Widow and Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier) still have a speculated solo movie so fans can hope to see them for a little while longer.
Will MCU kill any of these characters in Avengers 4? Let us know in the comments below.
