In an interview to Vanity Fair, Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, talked about what the fans can expect from "Avengers 4." According to him, the fourth installment of the superhero group will provide closure to some heroes.

For a lot of actors from the franchise, such as Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr., the yet-untitled "Avengers 4" is the last film in their contract with the company. To Feige, there will be two distinct periods on the Marvel Cinematic Universe: before and after the "Avengers 4." "I know it will not be in ways people are expecting," added the president.

The movie will hit theaters on May 3, 2019. Before that, the superhero group will reunite in "Avengers: Infinity War," slated for May 4, 2018. A report by Entertainment Weekly provides many of the details revealed later in this article.

MCU 2019 and beyond

Before the big event, Marvel Cinematic Universe has revealed movies until, at least, 2020 (something that could easily change). For 2018, along with "Infinity War," the MCU will have "Black Panther," with Chadwick Boseman, Sterling K. Brown, Lupita N'yongo, and Angela Bassett in the cast, and "Ant-Man and the Wasp."

2019 will bring Marvel's first female superhero solo movie: "Captain Marvel," with Brie Larson playing Carol Danvers, the titled hero.

The film will be set in the 1990s with Samuel L. Jackson reprising his role as Nick Fury.

2020, so far, will bring the sequel for "Spider-Man: Homecoming," and the third installment for "Guardians of the Galaxy," that will be written and directed by James Gunn.

According to a series of interviews, Kevin Feige and Marvel Comics have ideas for movies through 2021 and additional storylines planned til 2028.

They, however, are keeping the details under wraps.


The Marvel Cinematic Universe started in 2008 with "Iron Man." The film, with Robert Downy Jr. portraying Tony Stark, was the beginning of Phase One of the franchises created by Marvel and bought by Disney. The sequel debuted in 2010.

Kevin Feige and co. brought a group formed by Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow, and Hawkeye to fight against Loki.

"Avengers" premiered in 2012, and introduced Thanos, the villains that they will battle in the third and fourth installments.

The second phase had movies like "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," "Thor: Dark World," "Guardians of the Galaxy," and "Ant-Man."

Right now, Marvel is in Phase Three, with "Doctor Strange" introduced and appearing in his own movie and in "Thor: Ragnarök," the latest movie released by the company.
