Disney CEO Bob Iger says there will be more Avengers movies
Avengers 4 may close a chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it’s by no means the end of this beloved franchise. Disney CEO Bob Iger said as much on Tuesday – these movies are too popular to disappear forever.
“The goal, of course, is for the fourth in the Avengers series to have a significant conclusion,” said Iger said on a May 8 conference call. “But given the popularity of the characters and given the popularity of the franchise, I don’t think people should conclude that there will never be another Avengers movie.”
The MCU was always going to continue, so it’s not a big surprise that we’ll see big superhero team-ups in future phases. Just don’t put your money on a fifth Avengers movie with Captain America, Iron Man, and the other originals.But an Avengers with Black Panther, Spider-Man, Captain Marvel, and Ant-Man? We’re listening.
Disney also recently acquired 21st Century Fox and is in the process of securing rights to the company’s Marvel properties, any of which could be integrated into the Avengers series (*cough* X-Men *cough*) or create an entire new MCU.
