Marvel fans and superheroes will face the wrath of Thanos and the Infinity Gems. However, Marvel’s Kevin Feige has plans after Avengers Infinity War.
Comic book fans are already panicking as the Time Gem is revealed to be inside the Eye of Agamotto in Doctor Strange. This means only the Soul Gem is missing, which can only be in Adam Warlock – still unrevealed in the franchise.
Fans still have to wait for Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Spider-Man Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther before arriving at the big event. Regardless, some are now more than prepared to ask Kevin Feige for his other plans.
Feige stated that it’s best to appreciate the depth of accomplishments the Cinematic Universe has done through the years. At first they were having trouble just how to bring Tony Stark in the cinema. After that, they wanted to fit in World War 2, other planets, and now cosmic beings. With the successes of their endeavors, it only makes sense that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is growing more than ever.

However, Feige did clarify a few things about the new players of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. For instance, Doctor Strange’s magic balances with the powers of the other heroes. He may not be as powerful as his comic-book counterpart (who was almost nigh-omnipotent in the 1990s), but his time with the Avengers will be a learning curve.
The introduction of “separate working worlds” also worked. Marvel now has dimensional protectors like Strange and worldly protectors like the Avengers. This also set the stage for a Strange-Thor team up for Ragnarok.
However, what made fans concerned was the absence of an Avengers Infinity War Part 2. Feige explained to IGN there was no need to include a second part as a sequel. Whether or not they will fit the entire events of the comic in a film, or if it’s a nod to its sequel Infinity Crusade is a mystery.
Another interesting character to wait for is Captain Marvel, to be portrayed by Brie Larson. The tease that she will be the “most powerful character” in the Cinematic Universe will certainly be tested when she battles Thanos.
Meanwhile, fans would be delighted to know that the directors of Avengers Infinity War are also the same people who directed Civil War. Writers Christopher Markus adn Stephen McFeely of the Captain America films will also return.
Fans will be delighted to know that the films finally focus on Thanos’s quest for the Infinity Gems. This – and the preceding films – may finally chronicle how he will cheat, fight and kill to gain possession of the Gems.
