The Marvel Cinematic Universe has utterly dominated the cinema landscape in the last decade. Just ten years ago, when it was in its infancy, nobody, not even Marvel Studios executives, imagined that it would come to rule Hollywood. And yet, here we are.

The multi-billion-dollar franchise kicked off with Iron Man in 2008 and after a dozen years of its existence, it has delivered some of the biggest blockbusters in the history of filmmaking, and all the films have received positive reviews with some like Black Panther becoming one of the most critically acclaimed films ever.

Avengers: Endgame, the conclusion of a major storyline in the MCU, became the highest-grossing film at the worldwide box office last year, beating Avatar for the top spot. It had the supervillain Mad Titan Thanos being defeated by Tony Stark and the rest of the Avengers once and for all.

And yet, even with Endgame, paradoxically, this is just a beginning. Despite what the name (and marketing) suggested Avengers: Endgame is far from the end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was certainly an end, but not the end.

Westworld star Vincent Cassel: Marvel and DC movies are for kids

While Marvel Cinematic Universe is undoubtedly a box office and critical behemoth, it does have its detractors. Much like Martin Scorsese, actor Vincent Cassel has expressed his disinterest in MCU and DC films. The actor was recently asked in an interview with Inverse if he would play a supervillain, like his character in Westworld, in a Marvel or DC superhero film. Cassel said, “Honestly, these are not the movies I watch anymore. When they came up with the technology and the fact that suddenly Iron Man or Spider-Man could look real and not tacky in the special effects, I was interested. Then, it became normal. I was a big fan of the comics at the time when I was a kid. Nowadays, I think these are movies for kids, really. And even though I still have a part of me who’s a kid, I would say no. I wouldn’t watch it.”

Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld on uncertainty about Deadpool 3

Rob Liefeld, who created Deadpool, has expressed doubts whether a third Deadpool movie is being made. He told io9, “Do I know that there is no movement on a Deadpool 3 right now? I know that. Yes. And does that worry me? No. Not at all. What I did was I answered a question honestly. And what I learned this week is just lie. Just tell people everything is lollipop and unicorns and rainbows and you’ll be better off in your life because people want to be lied to. Just because some guy goes, ‘Yeah, We’re still moving along’ that’s code for ‘There’s nothing to see here.’”

When will Deadpool 3 come out? Ryan Reynolds says, 'We'll see'

Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds was asked about Disney's acquisition of Fox. He said, "I'm a huge fan of Marvel, and how they make movies. So when Disney bought Fox, I only saw that as a good thing. Deadpool hopefully being allowed to play in that sandbox, I think is just a win for everyone involved. But we'll certainly see."

When will, if ever, we see Avengers 5?

It might be a while — several years at least. Avengers movies were possible and we felt attached to them only because we intimately knew about characters like Tony Stark, Steve Rogers and Thor. Endgame had a backstory worth a staggering 21 movies. It was like the giant finale of a gigantic TV show.

With the newer superheroes, there is less of a connection since characters like Black Panther, Doctor Strange and Spider-Man have appeared only in one or two movies.

Will Red Skull return in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier?

Ross Marquand, who played the role of Red Skull in Avengers: Infinity War and its followup, Avengers: Endgame, told Point Blank LIVE, "I don't know about that," before adding, "My point when I said that was just that any of these characters can come back. I think when Doctor Strange established there are a million different threads and multiverses now, there are certain timelines where Red Skull is certainly free," Marquand said. "Because in Infinity War, once the Soul Stone goes to Thanos, now Red Skull can go anywhere. I was just saying there’s a world where all of these characters can come back — Black Widow, everyone who passed away, all of the villains — there's different multiverses and different timelines where all of these characters still exist, which I thought was pretty cool."

Marquand is well-known for his celebrity impressions and this was why he took over the role that Hugo Weaving played in the original film.

Several upcoming movies like The Eternals, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Thor: Love and Thunder and so on apart from the impending introduction of X-Men and Fantastic Four in the universe suggest the MCU is going to get a lot bigger than it already was.
