Given that Endgame officially became the highest-grossing movie in history and the Marvel Studios Comic-Con panel confirmed that Phase Four would be the first in the MCU that didn’t feature an Avengers movie, many people were speculating that the end of the Infinity Saga also meant the end of the team themselves.
However, Kevin Feige revealed in an interview shortly after the conclusion of the Marvel panel that the Avengers would return somewhere down the line, just in a very different guise to what fans are used to.
He said: “It will be a very different team than we’ve seen before. That’s what Endgame was all about. It will be a very different incarnation of the team with some people you’ve already met and some you haven’t met yet.”
Unsurprisingly, the president of Marvel Studios was incredibly vague when it came to divulging information, but hinted that the seeds for the eventual Avengers 5 would be planted across Phases Four and Five, much in the same way Thanos was teased as the ultimate villain across the Infinity Saga.
