Kevin Feige had this to say about the future of the MCU starting in 2021:
“We know what [films] we’d like them to be for 2020. Over the years, where we’re aiming we’ve been lucky enough that it’s usually been the same thing but we always leave ourselves the opportunity to bob and weave and adapt if we have to. But we know where we’re headed for 2020 and we have ideas and we’re beginning to solidify the years beyond that.”
