Kevin Feige teases the multiverse can be key to the MCU’s future. Wrapping up the 23-film Infinity Saga with Avengers: Endgame (with Spider-Man: Far From House acted as an epilogue), the Marvel franchise is getting ready to transition as they put together to kick off Part Four subsequent yr with Black Widow. Whereas the Scarlett Johansson and Cate Shortland mission a extra grounded, Earth-based movie, followers can count on the shared universe to deal with extra uncommon ideas because it progresses.
The thought of the multiverse isn’t new to the MCU. Far From House launched the idea, though it turned out to be nothing however a ruse from villain Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) to trick Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland). Nonetheless, it ready the general public for the chance that the franchise will finally discover the idea down the highway. And if Feige’s latest feedback are any indication, it will not be an excessive amount of of a wait.
Showing at Brazil’s CCXP (by way of Comedian Guide) to put out Marvel Studios’ plans for Part 4, Feige talked concerning the multiverse and the way it’ll be the following step within the MCU’s evolution. Physician Unusual and the Multiverse of Insanity will play a pivotal position in absolutely opening the franchise to the idea, and even shared that it’ll have an effect on a few of the upcoming tasks of their introduced slate of flicks and Disney+ sequence:
“Once we first began the MCU, it was all about Tony Stark. Introduce the world to Tony Stark and that Iron Man armor. Then [we] went on to show folks what Asgardians had been and study tremendous troopers then convey them collectively in Avengers. I’ve all the time beloved area films and I’ve all the time beloved massive intergalactic tales, which is why we did Guardians and the viewers got here with us so we might do a film like Endgame. I all the time wished to do time journey, which we lastly acquired to do in Endgame. The multiverse is the following step within the evolution of the MCU and Physician Unusual within the Multiverse of Insanity goes to crack it open in methods that may have repercussions for a Disney+ sequence earlier than it that is not WandaVision and for films after it in a giant enjoyable method.”
It isn’t stunning that that is the way in which to go for the MCU transferring ahead. Over time, they teased its existence with Physician Unusual and Ant-Man movies. It additionally got here up quite a few instances most of the theories with regard to the approaching arrival of the X-Males into the MCU, in addition to the rumored incorporation of the separate Sony Spider-Man franchise. It was in Endgame, nonetheless, that it grew to become clear that the franchise is absolutely diving into the idea with the alternate timeline branches created following the Time Heist.
Together with that, it is thought Feige’s feedback concerning the multiverse and its connection to Physician Unusual and the Multiverse of Insanity tying into one other Disney+ sequence (in addition to WandaVision) are about the Loki sequence starring Tom Hiddleston. Not solely does it match the timeline he gave (it is anticipated to launch previous to the sequel movie), it additionally suits with what occurred to the God of Mischief in Endgame – escaping the Avengers with the Tesseract/Area Stone and making a branching timeline. On prime of that it is smart that the idea can be extra prevalent after the Scott Derrickson-directed sequel. In any case, this solely means one factor: the MCU is ready to be greater and extra difficult than ever.
