Although Avengers: Endgame was generally believed to be the final movie in Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it seems that Spider-Man: Far From Home will actually serve as the final movie before Phase Four.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige was asked a question -- which is difficult to understand due to the audio quality -- during a fan event in Shanghai. However, it's clear that he's asked about Far From Home, to which he responds, “It’s the end of the third phase. You're the first person I told that to.” The outlet interviewing Feige also seems to have understood his remarks to mean that Far From Home will be the end of Phase Three, not Endgame.
As Far From Home is set to start after the events of Endgame, many had assumed it would be the start of Phase Four. However, this seems to contradict what otherwise seemed like a given in a franchise whose different eras have often been divided up by team-up movies starring Earth's Mightiest Heroes. If this proves to be true and not a misunderstanding of some sort, it's unclear what movie will launch Phase Four.
Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Brie Larson, Karen Gillan, Danai Gurira, Benedict Wong, Jon Favreau and Bradley Cooper, with Gwyneth Paltrow and Josh Brolin. The film arrives April 26.
Opening July 2, director Jon Watts’ Spider-Man: Far From Home stars Tom Holland, Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, Cobie Smulders, Jon Favreau, JB Smoove, Jacob Batalon and Martin Starr, with Marisa Tomei and Jake Gyllenhaal.
