Kevin Feige Confirms The Avengers Don’t Exist In MCU Phase 4


Kevin Feige has addressed the status of the Avengers in the Multiverse Saga. Marvel Studios’ boss appeared at D23 Expo to spearhead MCU’s presentation. He talked about a string of upcoming projects, including revealing the main cast of the Thunderbolts and more information about Captain America: New World Order. Feige also confirmed that WandaVision director Matt Shakman will be helming the Fantastic Four reboot.

That being said, Feige didn’t reveal anything new about the next two AveIngers films: Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars. During San Diego Comic-Con 2022, Feige announced that both films are set to premiere in 2025 and will serve as the culmination of the Multiverse Saga. He didn’t share any more details about Avengers 5 and 6 during the D23 Expo, but indirectly, Feige did confirm the current status of the Avengers in the MCU.

SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

While discussing the events of Captain America: New World Order, Feige (via The Direct) inadvertently revealed that the Avengers are disassembled, at least during the events of the movie. Marvel Studios’ chief says that when Sam Wilson finally wields the shield on the big screen, it would be in a world where the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes don’t exist. Read Feige’s full quote below:

“You know, one thing in the Captain America film is that there currently is a world without the Avengers. Sam Wilson finds himself as Cap at a time where there’s not an organization of Avengers.”

Since Marvel Studios’ storytelling is usually not in chronological order, it’s still uncertain when exactly Captain America: New World Order lands in the official timeline. It’s possible that the film takes place immediately after The Falcon and the Winter Soldier despite the fact that it releases a few years since the Disney+ series. In any case, it’s interesting that after the events of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, there hasn’t been any eagerness to ensure that Earth is always protected to prevent another catastrophe like Thanos’ snap. There are three remaining founding Avengers in the MCU who could be spearheading this effort, but it seems like after the Titan was defeated, all of them just decided to go their separate ways.

Luckily, while there won’t be an established team during the events of Captain America: New World Order, the film could lead to the re-assembly of the Avengers team. Perhaps after realizing that Earth is once again in a vulnerable state, Sam takes it upon himself to reconnect with his fellow heroes and bring together a new roster to defend the planet in case another invasion happens. For what it’s worth, the Avengers’ re-assembly is pretty much guaranteed thanks to Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars. It’ll be just a little while longer before it’s revealed who are the official new Avengers in the MCU now that its original leaders are gone.
