It has been confirmed that Marvel’s phase four will have a five-year plan. While old characters will go off the spotlight, new characters will be introduced. Meanwhile, heroes like Spider-Man, Black Widow, Hawkeye and others will have stand-alone stories.
In an interview with io9, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed that there will be new characters.
“The slate that we’re building over the next five years [is] not apples to apples. It is two very distinct things, and I hope they’ll feel very distinct. But there is a similar mentality going into it, which is ‘How can we continue to tell stories with some of the characters that audiences already know and love in a unique way, in a different way, in a surprising way, of which we have a lot of plans and ideas and work already going into it?’ [Then] ‘How can we introduce new characters that even hardcore fans, comic fans, have barely known or barely heard of.’ That’s really exciting too.”
“Spider-Man: Far From Home” will mark the end of phase three of Marvel. Therefore, fans have a lot to expect from phase four.
