No one would blame you if you thought Avengers: Endgame was the end of the Infinity Saga. It seemed like a fairly definitive end, but yet, there is one more chapter to tell.
Marvel President Kevin Feige is out on the promotional circuit for Spider-Man: Far From Home, and he shared that this is the true end of the 10-year saga. “We’ve been working for many years on Infinity War and Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home,” Feige said. “Those were the films that were culminating the entire Infinity Saga of the MCU. And as we were working on Endgame we realized that the true end of the entire Infinity Saga, the final film of Phase 3, had to be Spider-Man: Far From Home, because — spoiler — we lose Tony Stark at the end of Endgame.”
Feige went on to add, “The relationship between Peter Parker and Tony Stark is so special over the five films that Tom Holland has portrayed Spider-Man in the MCU, that we needed to see where his journey went, and see how does Spider-Man step out of the shadow of his mentor, Tony Stark, and become the true hero that he was always meant to be. And it’s for that reason that Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home are essentially two pieces of the same story, and it’s not over yet until Spider-Man: Far From Home.”
One more film to go and we will be able to close the book on the first three phases of the MCU. Where we go from here is anyone’s guess. For now, Marvel Studios is keeping a lid on what films are next. It does appear that a Black Widow movie is in the process of being filmed, but for now that is our only clue.
Spider-Man: Far From Home hits theaters in the U.S. on July 2.
