The Marvel world gripped a huge audience with Robert Downey Jr in the Iron Man suit. Avengers followed and hit the top-grossing movie mark. But now the world is full of possibilities for the studio. In fact, so much so, that they are in full control of which superhero comes back and how. (Of course, the one with the most fans).
Kevin Feige knows where he is streamlining Marvel Cinematic Universe’s future– right into the Multiverse which is full of possibilities. With major superheroes (Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, Vision) now gone, a Phase 4 project provides an unwavering possibility to bring them all back.
Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, and Vision have a door back into the MCU with this project.
Marvel Phase 4 and Kevin Feige’s Grand Multiverse Plan
Marvel has kicked off principal photography of their Phase 4 Disney Plus series, WandaVision. And the next in line is Marvel’s Phase 4 movie, ‘Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness’.
‘Multiverse’ is the idea of the (hypothetical) existence of multiple universes that have their own time, space, matter, and physical laws that rule them.
With such a huge space, the Doctor Strange Phase 4 movie’s concept might extend unimaginable possibilities for the Marvel writers to experiment with.
But this is not something that we are assuming on our own. The Multiverse is surely the way Marvel Studios is planning to move forward. Marvel’s top gun, Kevin Feige confirmed this at CCXP19 and subsequently, stirred discussions all over the globe.
Kevin Feige talked about the Multiverse and its endless posibilities. “I always wanted to do time travel, which we finally got to do in Endgame. The multiverse is the next step in the evolution of the MCU and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is going to crack it open in ways that will have repercussions for a Disney+ series before it that’s not WandaVision and for movies after it in a big fun way.”
‘Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness’ will hit the silver screen on 7 May 2021.
Well, that does give us some hints on future Phase 4 projects (additionally, the upcoming Phase 5 of Marvel). Marvel’s Multiverse concept is going to fuel a lot of its future projects. Disney Plus series, WandaVision and Loki, would surely be among them. In fact, as Kevin pointed out, MCU movies would also be steered with the Multiverse concept.
A World Full of Possibilities
While most of the characters are brought back after Thanos’ snap is reversed in Endgame, some do not survive till the end. Fan theories are wishing them back in various settings. But Multiverse might be the most convincing answer to bringing Marvel’s Avengers and their allies back.
So, who can really come back with this new inclusion in MCU?
It is already highly speculated that Scarlett Witch will be bringing back (or manipulating with time to be with) Vision. In fact, a picture from CCXP19 also teases this.
Iron Man in the Marvel Multiverse Madness?
It is common knowledge now that Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man character dies at the end of Endgame. This is a character that Downey has played for a long time now.
Fans were surely not ready to let him go.
If Marvel were to bring back any character with the help of the concept of Multiverse, Iron Man might top the list given fans’ love for him.
Scarlett Johansson’s last project with Marvel?
But we believe that bringing back Black Widow would not be a possibility. After all, she sacrificed herself for getting back the Soul Stone. And ‘Avengers: Endgame’ taught us that the sacrifice is certainly irreversible.
While the Black Widow is getting a standalone movie, whether or not she will be back to Marvel is skeptical despite Multiverse’s endless possibilities.
Without the Multiverse
Apart from these three, if ever Marvel plans to bring back Captain America it could be done without all the madness of Multiverse.
But it seems everyone has accepted a happily-ever-after ending for the superhero. And even Marvel would let him live out his days in bliss with Peggy.
Similar is the case for Loki who was killed in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’. The sinister Marvel character does not need the help of Multiverse to come back to MCU. In fact, he has died and come back to life many a time before, all thanks to his mischiefs.
Do any other names come to your mind when thinking about how Marvel Studios have an untapped source called ‘Multiverse’? Who would you want to come back? Share with us!
