This weekend Marvel Studios presented its action plan for the coming years… and what if the studio wants to bet on maintaining its dominance as the most popular film franchise of the last decade. Among all the news marathon it can be difficult to choose which is the most important, but one that you should pay attention to is the announcement of the official name of the next five years of movies:
Ladies and gentlemen, we are officially in the saga of the multiverse.
What does the saga of the multiverse mean?
The reason why this previous weekend’s announcement was so important is because a saga tells us what the secret intention is of the films that we will see in the next few years.
Phase 1, 2 and 3 of the MCU is called the Infinity Saga and a good part of the movies we saw had the purpose of presenting the infinity gems or preparing the eventual arrival of Thanos on earth and his confrontation with the Avengers . In this sense, the title of phase 4 aims to confirm the fate of this great story: a clash between the multiverse itself.
Kang is the Thanos of phase 6
At this point, many still do not fully understand the importance of that appearance at the end of ‘Loki’. Like the cameo at the end of the avengers, his ultimate purpose was to introduce us to what will be the world’s new great threat: Kang the conqueror.
It makes sense, considering that with the theme of the multiverse the logical villain to serve as the ‘big bad’ can be none other than Kang. The penultimate before phase 6 ends will be ‘Avengers: Kang Dynasty’, which in the comics is a story in which the villain successfully conquers the earth and the avengers oppose him by forming a resistance.
The final event will be a war between multiverses (probably)
And, again, the theme of the multiverses has been a constant in phase 4 for a reason. Unlike the bad guys so far, Kang is an authority that imposes itself on any dimension. So the final event will not only bring back the heroes of the main world… it promises a full-scale war between dimensions.
‘Avengers: Secret Wars’ takes its name from an event in which the different Marvel timelines come together in a dimension called Battleworld, with the heroes of these worlds seeking to defeat the tyrant in control (in this case, Dr Doom).
This means that for the next few years we will have to be very attentive to the clues, cameos and surprises that the MCU has.
The saga of the multiverse has begun. And if we can trust Marvel Studios… we haven’t seen anything of the world that has it in store for us.
