In addition to many new faces such as the Thunderbolts or Blade, well-known characters such as Ant-Man also appear , Loki and the Guardian of the Galaxy up again.
Towards the end of phase 6 even they are allowed to avengers ran again and fans can certainly look forward to one with The Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars infinity war and end game comprehend a comparable spectacle. The finale of Phase 3 was, after all, an epic with high stakes and equally high sacrifices.
Jon Favreau didn’t want Iron Man to die in Avengers: Endgame
Every Marvel fan will probably still remember the deaths of Natascha Romanoff aka Black Widow and Tony Stark aka Iron Man remember who helped make Endgame such an emotional experience. But if Marvel director Jon Favreau had had his way, Tony Stark would not have lost his life like the Endgame directors did Joe and Anthony Russo in an interview with Vanity Fair revealed:
“Part of the pressure came from Jon Favreau, who called us after he read the script and he said to us, ‘Are you really going to kill Iron Man?’, says Anthony. Joe adds: “I remember pacing back and forth on the corner of the stage trying to get Favreau out of his doubts because he was like, ‘You can’t do this. It’s going to crush people and you didn’t want them, you know, out of the cinema and into traffic.”
Jon Favreauwho is not only known as the director of Iron Man and Iron Man 2, but also as an actor in the role of Happy Hogan was and is involved in the MCU naturally has a very special relationship with the character of Tony Stark. And even without traffic accidents (fortunately!), Favreau should be right: When Tony Stark aka Iron Man died, many fans should have shed a tear or two in the cinema hall.
What’s next for the Avengers in the MCU?
Of course, we now know that despite the showdown in Endgame, the Avengers aren’t dead – even if many of the original members are dead or scattered about the world. Finally it’s on May 2, 2025 with The Kang Dynasty before us on am November 7, 2025 with secret wars that Stage 6 finale expected.
The biggest mystery about the two films is currently the members of the new Avengers, which will certainly include some of the new characters introduced in Phase 4. But we already know their opponent: Kang the Conqueror, who is played by Jonathan Majors and will be “very different” from Thanos, according to Marvel boss Kevin Feige. Incidentally, Destin Daniel Cretton, who was most recently responsible for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, will direct the two new Avengers films.
