The Marvel Cinematic Universe is heading in an unknown direction, and since Phase 4 began, the MCU has exploded into a multiverse-centric storyline.
It was followed by two controversial films, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” and “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”.
Although the box office results of the two films are very good, the word of mouth is seriously polarized. Many people think that the plot of the film is complicated and complicated, and it is far less sophisticated than the previous one.
At the same time, some settings are also contradictory with related works. What happened to the MCU has become the most doubtful issue in the hearts of all fans today.
In this regard, Marvel President Kevin Feige stood up and took the responsibility on himself. He deeply analyzed the current stage of Marvel and explained the reasons for some of the doubts.
Feige said that the MCU is currently at the intersection of a multiverse era. At the end of Loki’s first season, Sylvie killed Kang the Conqueror, which led to the release of the multiverse into the MCU, Feige personally confirmed. If Sylvie hadn’t done this, “Spider-Man: No Way Home” and “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” wouldn’t have happened, and the multiverse would have been smothered in the cradle forever.
But at the same time, Feige also said that when planning this series of projects at that time, in order to ensure that the project would bring a brand new Marvel world in 2-3 years, the rhythm was quite tight, which led to when the epidemic came, After Marvel readjusted its plans, the earlier plans were all disrupted.
For example, “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” was supposed to happen before “Spider-Man 3”, and the first MCU episode was supposed to be “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier”, but it was all messed up because of the pandemic, although It has been rearranged, but some previously logically rigorous plots cannot be connected at all.
The two most obvious examples are the contradiction between “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” and “WandaVision”. Originally, “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” was supposed to be released before “WandaVision”, and the result became It was only during the filming of “WandaVision” that Aomei learned that she was going to make a cameo in “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”.
And “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” director Sam Raimi was halfway through the production of the film, and “WandaVision” was just finished.
Facing the same problem was Hayley Atwell, who played Captain Carter in “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”. She was filming the movie and “What If…?” hadn’t been made yet, so the role of Captain Carter was She has no way of knowing what her character is, she can only act according to the script and her own feelings.
As a result, the characters and episodes that were finally performed were not alone at all. Fortunately, the parallel universes could be used to perfunctory the past in the end.
Both the actor and the director were all overwhelmed by this chaotic project schedule.
In general, the disrupted schedule completely disrupted the entire rhythm. Although it was because of the epidemic, Feige also blamed himself for this. He admitted that he did lack foresight in future plans and ignored many possible events. factor.
But he also said he’s now starting to plan a story for the next decade that will surely get the MCU back on track.
