July’s Comic-Con International in San Diego witnessed the unveiling of the full slate of the Marvel Cinematic Universal’s Phase four. Marvel studios president, Kevin Feige introduces Loki, The Winter Soldier, The Falcon and WandaVision for Disney+, along with Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Doctor strange in the Multiverse of madness and eternals.
Phase Four and its connection with Avengers: Endgame
The Marvel studios had always brought new seasons with references to the previous ones. But Phase Four plans had no effect on the ending of Avengers: Endgame. Screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely revealed in an interview with Canada.com that MCU’s next phase had no effect on the film’s conclusion.
When asked on whether they had to worry about face four, McFeely answers that there’s no need to. He adds that the Avengers: Endgame had done immensely well and they along with the directors were allowed to end the chapter. After over ten years of character building and story development, any of the major characters saw an end in the Avengers: Endgame. This included that of Tony Stark/ Iron man, Steve Rogers/ Captain America and Natasha Romanoff/ Black Widow. Though ending a superhero story and paving way for a new one is a whole risk. But on the storytelling pint of view it would sound great.

McFeely believes that the MCU has also kept itself fresh and new in content and from time to time let new things grow. He also wants people to understand that Marvels Studios has always brought in serialised storytelling, done on an epic scale.
Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlet Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Brie Larson, Paul Rudd, Don Cheadle, Karen Gillan, Danai Gurira, Bradley Cooper and Josh Brolin in significant roles.
