After successfully dubbing each wave of movies as a “Phase” Marvel Studios have now gone and given their first 10 years of movies their own title.
In a recent interview with Empire Magazine studio head Kevin Feige discussed how the studio approached looking at the 22 movies they currently have under their belt.
“We wanted to bring to a conclusion a series of movies in a way that had never been done before,” said Feige. “Harry Potter had an ending because there were only so many books. Lord of the Rings too. But we thought, 22 movies in, wouldn’t it be fun to bring some finality to the storyline?”
What is that title exactly?
“The Infinity Saga”.
It makes perfect sense to help bring a sense of closure to this part of the MCU to give it an overarching title. With several cast members expected to move on the studio can look to a new saga as a fresh start for the franchise.
After the devastating events of Avengers: Infinity War (2018), the universe is in ruins due to the efforts of the Mad Titan, Thanos. With the help of remaining allies, the Avengers must assemble once more in order to undo Thanos’ actions and restore order to the universe once and for all, no matter what consequences may be in store.
Avengers: Endgame is directed by Joe and Anthony Russo. The movie stars Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Olsen, Chadwick Boseman, Danai Gurira, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland and Anthony Mackie.
The film arrives in cinemas in April 25 in the UK and April 26 in North America.
