The Marvel Cinematic Universe head honcho has said that Avengers: Endgame was "the final Avengers" movie, suggesting that Earth's Mightiest Heroes are very much no more within the MCU.
This might seem obvious. Endgame did, after all, scatter the original team lineup to the four winds. Captain America has retired. Iron Man and Black Widow are dead. Thor is off on a cosmic journey of self discovery. Hawkeye and Hulk have Disney Plus contracts.
Even so, it stings a little to hear Feige outright confirm that the Avengers have had their day. In the latest episode of the behind-the-scenes show Marvel Studios Assembled, the MCU boss discussed why the time was right for The Eternals.
"Marvel Studios and the Marvel Cinematic Universe is now past their tenth anniversary and with the release of the final Avengers movie, we've finally completed a 22-movie Infinity Saga," Feige explained. Welp. There it is.
Of course, Feige saying Endgame was the final Avengers movie still gives us plenty of wiggle-room. Leaving aside the fact the X-Men and Fantastic Four are joining the MCU and will no doubt fill up our appetite for superhero teams in the next few years, there are loads of different versions of the Avengers scattered throughout comic book history.
The Disney Plus shows have been busy setting up the Young Avengers with characters like Kate Bishop, and Wanda's twin boys Billy and Tommy. I'd also be more than willing to bet that that the New Avengers will show up sooner rather than later, which would make what Feige is saying technically true. The Avengers, as we currently know them, are gone.
