Kevin Fiege Has Given First The Wave Of Marvel Movies An Official Title


Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has revealed what the first wave of movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that will culminate with Avengers: Endgame is being referred to.

In an interview with Empire Magazine, Feige called the 11-year buildup of 22 films, starting with Iron Man in 2008 and ending with Endgame next month, “the Infinity Saga.”

This is obviously a reference to the saga’s looming presence of the Infinity Stones, as well as last year’s Avengers: Infinity War, which saw, with a (not-so) simple snap of a finger, the decimation of half of the universe, including many of our beloved superheroes.

“We wanted to bring to a conclusion a series of movies in a way that had never been done before,” Feige explained to Empire Magazine. “Harry Potter had an ending because there were only so many books. Lord of the Rings too. But we thought, 22 movies in, wouldn’t it be fun to bring some finality to the storyline?”

Marvel fans will certainly debate whether or not that finality will actually be fun, with many already speculating and grieving over the deaths they may be seeing next month, primarily the suspected death of Captain America.

Even if Steve Rogers doesn’t perish, the forthcoming battle against Thanos in Avengers: Endgame will probably see a lot of bloodshed. Marvel proved last year that they’re ready and willing to sacrifice their characters, and with the president of the studio calling for an end to the saga, we can only sit and wait impatiently to see what’ll happen.

But now seems as good a time as any to seal the deal with this first wave of movies, which have brought us over a decade’s worth of entertainment. Maybe that means we’ll be getting a Blu-ray box set soon with the words “The Infinity Saga” plopped on the front.

Time will tell, but before you go out and see it next month, tell us, is Avengers: Endgame the ending to the current saga that you want? And do you hope they’ll throw Cap a lifeline? Sound off down below.
