The creative brains involved with Marvel Studios have been driving the Marvel Cinematic Universe towards a fresh start post-Avengers 4. After all, big names associated with the franchise for 10 years, have themselves touched upon the topic of their exit and bidding farewell to the characters that they have been bringing to life for some time now.

Whether it is Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man or Chris Evans' Captain America, the clouds of doubt loom large, especially over the future of the older and more established characters.

Keeping all this in mind, though, Marvel Studio producer Nate Moore's latest interview with Screen Rant, where he talks about the development of the various sub-franchises under the Marvel umbrella and the end of some storylines, came as no surprise.     

When asked about the plans for Phase 4 and the future movies on the docket, Moore straightaway told the website that there are major alterations in the works. 

"I think it's an opportunity for us to bid a fond farewell to characters that we've come to know for a while, but to also then introduce characters who are going to feel completely new and hopefully surprising to both our core fans and fans of our movies who aren't as well-versed in publishing," he told the movie news site, confirming (seemingly) our greatest fears when it comes to the bleak fate of some of the Marvel superheroes. 


He continued, briefly summarizing the plans for the franchise, and telling, "There are great ideas out there that we've talked about internally that I think and I hope will be surprising and refreshing to audiences while we still continue to explore characters we've come to love."

"The new ones always feel really exciting because they can be anything. We're at the point now where we're blue-skying, what are the best stories to tell, and in that blue sky there are ideas that I think all of us get really excited to share with people."

Post-Infinity War, Marvel has lined up a slew of solo headliners as well as an ensemble set-up like the Ant-Man and the Wasp, Captain Marvel, and the much-anticipated Avengers 4. 

With so many movies coming out in such a limited time, Marvel fans be better prepared for some binge-watch marathons, of both the old and the new ones.
