The Marvel Cinematic Universe is almost done with their 2018 slate. With the release of Ant-Man and The Wasp next month, that will officially wrap their year up, and one hell of a year it has been. With Black Panther AND Avengers: Infinity War having come out in the first half of 2018, they have dominated the box office lately. With this being their final bang until the beginning of next year, all fans will have to get them through is news and trailers. Well, we have a bit of news for you regarding Avengers 4 as well as Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Let’s start off with some news about Avengers 4. Kevin Feige was interviewed by io9 and they held nothing back! One big mystery is how Marvel will market future films and Avengers 4 with a majority of their heroes gone. They began by asking if someone like Black Panther can appear in the Avengers 4 trailer and Kevin answered promptly with a no, because he’s gone. This is obviously because of the events of Infinity War, which led to a pretty lethal snap. So no Black Panther, that also means no Doctor Strange, Spider-Man, Falcon, Bucky, Starlord, Groot, Drax, you get the point.
That question gave the perfect opportunity to segue into a question about the Spider-Man sequel, Spider-Man: Far From Home. When it comes to future projects, Marvel is notorious for their secrecy, despite Tom Holland’s efforts. Io9 was able to get a question in about the sequel, asking Feige, when does it take place? Well Feige had this to answer the question:
We know it’s the summer. I think it’s summer vacation. I think he’s going to Europe with his friends. I don’t know what summer… I mean, I do know [but you don’t].
He obviously can’t give us too much, cause that would lead to us figuring out if Spider-Man comes back from the dead or not. He answered it in a sense that could imply that the sequel takes place the summer between Infinity War, but this goes back on an answer of his from awhile ago. I’ll put his quote below:
So much happens in [the third and fourth Avengers movies], as you can imagine, and so much is affected by it that we felt what better person to hold your hand and lead you into the next incarnation of the MCU, in a grounded, realistic manner, than Peter Parker? So, coming out two months after Untitled Avengers, [that’s what] much of what the next Spider-Man film will be about.
The events of Infinity War and Avengers 4, which seem pretty drastic, will have a strong impact on the way we see Peter Parker return in Far From Home as a junior in high school. He could barely act normal after Civil War so I’m guessing he’ll be a bit more dazed by what just happened to him, especially the dying part.
All we can really do is sit back and watch Marvel work their magic. They must have some logical answer to all this, and we’ll get to see it play out. With rumors of time travel, what isn’t possible? Feige isn’t 100% sure on how the marketing for Avengers 4 is going down, but he said they’re working with the best marketing team in Disney, so if he’s confident, so am I. How do you think they’ll get by with marketing with so many people gone? Let us know over at SuperBroMovies! – JB Baker
