Although Avengers 5 was not announced as part of the MCU’s Phase 4 plans at San Diego Comic-Con last weekend, don’t worry, we are still getting it, eventually. Just don't expect to see the original gang making a return, as Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has promised that when the Avengers assemble once again, they will be a very different team.

Following the presentation at Comic-Con, Feige had an interview during which he was asked about what lies ahead for the Avengers in the MCU. Will it be Dark Avengers, Young Avengers, or something else? The president was not willing to disclose any concrete information, but he did confirm that Marvel does have more plans for the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in the future.

"Yes, and 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," he said.

Avengers: Endgame did, indeed, conclude the stories of many of our favorite characters, including Iron Man, Captain America, and Black Widow. As a result, it totally makes sense that things will not stay the same.

That said, we won’t be seeing it until at least 2022 when Phase 5 kicks off. Phase 4 will tell the origins of Black Widow, The Eternals, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, as well as continuing the stories of Thor and Doctor Strange in Thor: Love and Thunder and Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness. Several TV shows are also planned for Loki, Wanda, Vision, Winter Soldier, Falcon, and Hawkeye. Feige also added that they will all converge to a crossover storyline once again.

"Well, it's what I love about the Marvel comic method of storytelling. That's not anything we invented, I love that things build up, they build to a crescendo, they all get together, they separate, they change.” The president stated.

Phase 5 will reportedly feature a Blade reboot starring Mahershala Ali, as well as new X-Men and Fantastic Four. On top of that, we’ll probably get to see Black Panther and Captain Marvel getting sequels to their own movies as well. Let’s wait to see what Marvel has in mind.
