Marvel Fans Losing Their Minds Over Disney/Fox Merger And Possibility Of A Superhero Battling Thanos. Yes, That One

We are a few short months away from Avengers: Endgame, and fans are learning more details about the upcoming Marvel blockbuster, as well as the other Marvel Cinematic Universe films slated to launch in 2019.

Regardless of what happens in Avengers: Endgame, and irrespective of how the movie ends, the credits scenes will set up Phase 4 of the MCU, which starts with Spider-Man: Far From Home in July. And Marvel fans are losing their minds online over a credits scenes theory that sounds way too good to be true. But if it pans out, it’ll turn out to be a brilliant move from Marvel and Disney.


Disney will soon close its Fox acquisition, at which point it’ll obtain the film rights for a slew of Marvel heroes that Marvel Studios itself wasn’t able to use in any of the existing MCU movies. Characters including X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Deadpool will all become fair game for the studio, and we could see some of them join forces with whatever is left of the Avengers team post-Endgame.


During an interview last week, Marvel boss Kevin Feige said that everything is “looking very, very good,” and that movies built around Fox’s characters “could happen in the first six months of next year.” Feige did say that he hasn’t been given the official green light to start any production based on Fox heroes. But Disney CEO Bob Iger said in the past that, after the Disney-Fox merger, they would try new things beyond the Avengers franchise.


That’s detail number one you need to know before we get to this Endgame credits scene theory.  The second detail is a reminder that, after years of playing Wolverine on screen, and much to the disappointment of fans (and Deadpool’s Ryan Reynolds), Hugh Jackman is done with the superhero role.
