We are getting closer and closer to the release of Avengers: Infinity War everyday and the culmination of the past decade of the MCU. The film promises to bring together Earth’s mightiest heroes and the Guardians of the Galaxy in a battle against the mad titan Thanos. Infinity War wont have to handle this task alone as it will be joined with its sequel Avengers 4. But not only will it bring together all these heroes, but it will also bring together every MCU plot thread in one movie.
In a special feature on the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok Blu-Ray, producer Kevin Feige stated that every plot from past films will find its own “narrative thread” in the two films. Feige has said,
“Every story that Marvel has told since Iron Man 1 finds a narrative thread in these next two Avengers movies. It is a culmination of all that storytelling.”
In fact he even stressed that every single thread and tease from the MCU will finally be paid off in Infinity War and Avengers 4,
“With Infinity War, we’re paying off every little thread and every little tease that we’ve had in what will be 18 films prior to Infinity War. There’s never been anything like this. Being able to, film after film, tease at a larger story. Really building these stories up into a giant conclusion. While at the same time introducing an entirely new direction for the future.”
While Infinity War may serve as a conclusion to the past decade of storytelling it will also be a new beginning for old and new heroes. It is set to launch a new era of the MCU so it will be interesting to see how they resolve all of these threads. For now though we will have to just wait and see what Marvel has in store for us.
