Avengers 5 might just be a possibility for us since Marvel never lets a story end. Avengers Endgame is going to close up the 10-year arc of 22 movies. The movie is going to answer a lot of unanswered questions. But there is another question of the possibility of an Avengers 5? Will the team survive after the fourth Avengers film?
Marvel’s future after phase 4
Marvel has not announced an Avengers 5 till now. SpiderMan: Far from Home is already scheduled to release this year and Marvel has Black Panther 2 lined up for 2020. Other movies lined up for 2020 are Doctor Strange 2, Black Widow, Shang Chi and The Eternals etc. Disney has already speculated eight untitled Marvel movies from 2020 to 2022. Since we have already named five of them, three still remain unconfirmed. So, we can assume that one of those three can be an Avengers 5 movie.
Is Avengers 5 too big to fail?
But will Avengers 5 surely release in the upcoming years? Endgame might end the story, just like a lot of fans have predicted. There is a fair chance that we might not get to see our whole team reunited for an Avengers 5. And the Avengers brand is far too precious to shelve for a long time.
Marvel studios have beautifully crafted the whole series which is now leading us towards the climax. And Avengers 5 would serve as the perfect end for the series since it would hopefully feature the entire team together. And this formula has worked for MCU in the past. And the previous Avengers movies have already made their places in the topmost grossing movies of the MCU.
How will the Avengers continue?
Here, the question is how will the Avengers continue if they have to. Iron Man and Captain America are expected to leave the series and it actually applies to any Avenger. Anyone could have drifted off after Endgame’s conclusion. But, if Brie Larson, a.k.a Captain America is going to lead a team to defeat Thanos, then she will need the Avengers to finish the job.
In the worst case scenario, Disney might rip apart the Avengers. But, that would not mean the end of it. There are the comics variants who would continue the legacy. There have been rumours that there are new developments on an evil side, the Dark Avengers, the Young Avengers, etc. Disney will have a plate full of options to continue Marvel’s legacy of the Avengers. And if not that, then at least it could bless us with an Avengers 5.
