Warning: This article has MAJOR SPOILERS for Avengers: Infinity War!
Avengers: Infinity War resulted in a plethora of the MCU heroes being turned into ash, and audiences worldwide are keen to find answers. A great hope was ignited by the post-credits scene, though. Moments before he turned into ash, Nick Fury made a distress call to Captain Marvel. The Captain Marvel solo movie as well as Ant-Man and the Wasp releasing this July will have key roles to play in figuring out what exactly happened, according to the writers of Avengers: Infinity War.
“Put yourself in our positions two years ago,” Stephen McFeely told Buzzfeed. “We’re looking at a blank wall, and it says Avengers 3, Ant-Man and [the] Wasp, Captain Marvel, Avengers 4. So there are four big shoeboxes, and we’re responsible for the bookends. As we’re going through deciding what we want to do, we have these two shoeboxes in the middle that you can either look at as burdens or opportunities.”
McFeely acknowledged about “very small suggestions” made by moviemakers which are instrumental in creating the films and establishing links between them, but, he stressed that the makers of Ant-Man and the Wasp and Captain Marvel “got to make exactly the movies they wanted.”
The writers still claim that these films will be linked to Avengers 4 in constructive ways.
“My hope is the conversation you and I will have a year from now; you’ll have a sense of the choices we’ve made over the course of an entire year of Marvel movies,”McFeely said. “There’s a relationship between them all.”
Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War are currently running in theaters. Up next is Ant-Man and The Wasp scheduled to release on July 6. Captain Marvel will release on March 8 next year, and the Avengers 4 hits theaters in exactly a year from now on May 3, 2019.
