Marvel Studios has revealed their plans for the next three years with two new ones Avengers movies to be announced. Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars will both make their way to theaters in 2025. It might seem like a long shot, but Marvel is known for teasing their upcoming films with post-credits scenes. But it looks like they might be doing it differently this time. During a new interview with ComicBook.com, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige reveals how the post-credits scenes could build to the next two Avengers films.
“The truth is, all the labels are never just about the future. There are labels eating shwarma, Captain America saying you know you have to learn patience, sometimes, you know, you wait for something that’s not worth it . So they’re always fun for us,” Feige told us. “We don’t want everything to feel the same. So some of the tags will connect and some of them won’t. Some of the films and programs will connect; some of them won’t. I think it’s just as important that we can stand-alone introductory stories like Ms. Marvel has, like Moon Knight, in addition to things that connect and build towards the larger story. A lot of what we’ve done has built on this larger story, obviously with The Kang Dynasty and the Multiverse Saga, and now I think people will, I hope, come along for the ride. Either way you’re on the express train to the finals, even when it’s fun, as many of our Phase 1, 2 and 3 films were.”
The most recent Marvel Studios film to hit theaters was Thor: Love and Thunder. The film is directed by Taika Waititi and will star Chris Hemsworth as the title character, Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie, Natalie Portman as Jane Foster/Mighty Thor, Russell Crowe as Zeus, Jaimie Alexander as Lady Sif, Chris Pratt as Peter Quill/Star Here, Sean Gunn as Kraglin, Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer, Karen Gillan as Nebula and Christian Bale as Gorr the God Butcher.
