“It’s always fun to see them come together in a master plan, which is, I promise you, well underway.”
It appears Marvel‘s current and incoming MCU “phases” will have their own Thanos-scale blockbuster(s.)
During a recent stop at Brazil’s Comic-Con, Marvel President, Kevin Feige, spoke at-length of the implications of The Eternals, which will reportedly span thousands of MCU years and introduce an invincible team of aliens to the timeline. But Feige also copped to devising a grand scheme that would bridge all two dozen of Marvel’s slated film and TV titles in an Endgame-ish crossover. Feige tells Omelete, “The MCU is all interconnected, but we really focus on one movie at a time. We’re going to make the best Black Widow movie we can possibly make, the best Eternals movie we can make, the best Shang-Chi, Doctor Strange, Thor, Captain Marvel, Black Panther, right? And keep evolving their stories. And then, yes, it’s always fun to see them come together in a master plan. Which is, I promise you, well underway.”

The reveal follows a recent leak claiming Doctor Doom would be introduced as an overarching villain in Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther 2, which lines up well with phase five’s reboot of the Fanstastic Four franchise. Obviously, it’s all pretty speculative still, but if Feige is looking for a snap-the-universe-out-of-existence threat, Doom should be a lock here.
The MCU’s phase four technically launched with Spiderman: Far From Home, the first post-Endgame film. It continues on with Black Widow next summer, for which a trailer was released earlier this week.
