Now that the superhero dust has settled, and Avengers: Endgame has made us both stand up and cheer one second, and sit down and cry the next, the future of the MCU is the talk of the town. We know the next Avengers-themed Marvel movie to swing into theaters will be Spider-Man: Far From Home. But what of the beloved team-ups and crossovers, like Thor and Hulk in Ragnarok, or the Guardians of the Galaxy?
Well, We Got This Covered has learned from our source that the next big Marvel team-up/crossover movie won’t be until New Avengers. The studio’s still only “rumored” to be making the film, with an alleged date for its release recently leaking as May 6th, 2022, but our intel says it’s definitely happening. Which means in three short years, we could see the likes of Iron Lad, Hulkling, Kate Bishop’s Hawkeye, Patriot, Wiccan, Stature and Vision 2.0 on the big screen.
Now, we should specify that projects like Guardians Vol. 3 are still moving forward. It’s only the big, multi-franchise crossovers that we saw with the Avengers series that the studio will be holding back on. And given that they just wrapped those up with Endgame, that makes perfect sense.
It’s still unclear how exactly Marvel will begin to form the new team and introduce them into the MCU, but the seeds have definitely been planted for the next generation of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. During Tony Stark/Iron Man’s funeral scene at the end of Endgame, for instance, we caught a glimpse of a mysterious teen. As you surely know by now, it turned out to be Ty Simpkins, who played Harley Keener, the boy who befriended Stark in Iron Man 3. He seems to be at the top of many lists to lead the Young Avengers – or New Avengers, if that’s what they’re calling them for the film – but we’ll have to leave those decisions up to Kevin Feige.
In the meantime, tell us, are you ready for the New Avengers, who promise to be the next wave of MCU superheroes? Let us know in the comments section down below.
