The Marvel Cinematic Universe is going through the biggest transformation period after more than 10 years of operation. The closure of Infinity Saga has removed many famous names from the “game”, including the two leaders Captain America and Iron Man. Now it’s hard to say which direction the MCU will develop in the next phase, and which superheroes will be chosen to fill the void left by the early Avengers.
However, one thing is for sure: If Marvel Studios still follow their typical movie universe concept, they will continue to gain more success with future movies. Recently, the Russo brothers, the director duo behind the success of the last two Avengers movies, even confirmed that they had ideas to help the future of the MCU even “bigger” than Infinity. War and Endgame.
The Russo brothers thought that the next Avengers movie might be larger than either Infinity War or Endgame.
The Russo brothers participated in 4 Marvel Studios projects and all achieved great success. Among them are Avengers: Infinity War, and especially the most popular blockbuster of all time, Avengers: Endgame. This is considered the end of the six infinity stones in the MCU, which Marvel has built since the first days more than a decade ago. Infinity War / Endgame is also considered to be the strongest cross-over phase in the universe at the present time, when almost all the superheroes in the previous 20 movie series gathered to one fight against the crazy titan. Thanos disorder.
The talent of the Russo duo is that they can balance between dozens of different characters, so that everyone has a place to play and the time to shine on the big screen, while contributing to the development of the script. general. It’s hard to imagine how Marvel would have to overcome the size and stature that Endgame left behind. However, the director is quite confident with the upcoming Avengers: “The next Avengers movie will be the best work out of your imagination. The script is always what makes us most excited, and the ambition in the next phases of the MCU is even bigger than the Infinity Saga.”.
Sharing with Bro Bible, director Joe Russo said the story of Secret Wars can completely overcome the great shadow of Infinity War and Endgame: “I have read Secret Wars since I was a 10, 11 year old kid and was impressed by the idea that all superheroes gathered together. It was one of the first big stories to do that – a great script for me. And anything can happen when you put different personalities and people in the same story. I also particularly liked the idea of the two antagonists – the front line working together. I like the villains but play a hero in their own story. They (Marvel) did everything just to create Secret Wars. In order to create a work of great caliber like Infinity War, we could only think of Secret Wars, with an even larger scale.”.
The Russo brothers thought that Secret Wars was a script idea that could help the MCU overcome the great shadow of Endgame.
If you do not know, Secret Wars is a story that brings together both Avengers and X-Men as well as many other superheroes and villains. They were brought to Battleworld by the cosmic entity, The Beyonder, after he witnessed the power they showed when on Earth. Here, he forced them to fight each other with the promise: “I am the superior! Destroy the enemy, and you will have whatever you want! There is no wish that we cannot fulfill”.
Currently, the MCU is on hold due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, and is expected to officially enter phase 4 on November 6 with Black Widow. The Russo brothers are also very busy with their own projects and will almost certainly not participate in any part of the MCU phase 4. However, given the success they’ve contributed to Marvel Studios through Captain America: Civil War or the latest two Avengers installments, it’s no surprise that the duo will return in the near future to continue creating. The blockbuster series has even more destructive power than Infinity War or Endgame.
