If you ever had any concerns that once Disney was done with the third trilogy of the 9 part Star Wars saga, you can breathe easily. The same goes for Marvel movies. Not only are there plans for movies after Avengers: Infinity Wars, but according to Disney Chairman Bob Iger, there plans that extend way beyond episode IX.
“There will be more after that, I don’t know how many, I don’t know how often. [As for] Marvel, you’re dealing with thousands and thousands of characters – that will go on forever.”
We already have heard that there are plans that go beyond what Infinity Wars will offer, starting with Inhumans which has already been confirmed on Marvel’s release schedule, as well as three mystery movies slated for 2020.
Given the enormous diversity that exists within the Marvel comic book universe, there will continually be source material, as well as a wealth of characters, that Marvel Studios and Disney can draw upon for their ever growing cinematic universe.
When asked if he thought fans interest in the MCU might be fading, Bob Iger replied:
“No, I don’t think they’re getting weary, but I think we keep raising the bar in terms of telling stories that bring them back, that excite them, that make it feel new and that is what we do for a living.”
So is this potentially a good thing, or does having these two franchises, with presently no end in sight in terms of movie releases, actually diminish their respective properties?
