Marvel’s Plans After Phase 3

Marvel has had a successful run with Phase 1 and Phase 2. As of right now, they are planning to close Phase 3 with the Avengers Infinity War movies which are going to be filmed in IMAX. As one could see, they are making sure that they go big with their movies. One good thing about the MCU is that Marvel has made plenty of efforts to make sure that their movies not only stand alone well, but that they also work together. This is a tough balance to figure out.

 

One good thing about the MCU is that there are decades of material that could be used in order to bring forth some really good stories. After all, Marvel has made some really good stories throughout the years. As for what is after phase 3. There are plenty of possibilities. They have already worked out a deal with Sony for Spider-Man movies. Perhaps they could bring in characters like X-Men and Fantastic Four into the MCU. One thing about these movies is that the original stories have featured tons of characters like the X-Men, Spider-Man and a ton of other Marvel characters that have yet to be introduced into the MCU.

 

One good thing about the MCU is that they have been rather consistent with the ensemble films. While the first Iron Man was a great introduction into the MCU, the other 2 Iron Man movies have not lived up to the success of the first Iron Man. However, Robert Downey Jr. has kept it up as the perfect Tony Stark. He continues to play the character in a way that makes him human.
