The Marvel Cinematographic Universe (MCU) has become one of the biggest film franchises, conquering fans all over the world and generating a billionaire revenue for Disney. But will it one day end? Marvel Studios Vice President of Production and Development Nate Moore addressed the matter
Speaking on The Town with Matthew Belloni podcast, Moore believes the franchise could go on for “a long time”, insisting that the creative teams behind the MCU still have many stories to tell.
“To me, Marvel movies are just movies,” said the executive. “It would be like saying, ‘Hey, are movies about books going to last forever?’ Probably”.
Despite that confidence, Moore stressed that Marvel Studios cannot rest easy with the established formula.
“We cannot relax with success. We cannot think that we have the answers. We have to keep innovating as far as the genre and what we are willing to explore.”
Disney+ expanded the MCU
While the MCU has largely dominated the box office in recent years, the launch of Disney+ has allowed the franchise to embrace the streaming medium.
Moore explains that the opportunity to focus on characters outside of traditional blockbusters allowed for even greater growth, with differentiated stories.
The MCU, which was established in 2008 with Iron Man, has been expanding steadily for years across multiple movies and series.
Having just concluded Phase 4 of the franchise with Black Panther 2, on which Moore served as executive producer, fans are starting to look ahead to the next chapters.
The fifth and sixth phases will further build up the “Multiverse Saga”, concluding with Avengers: Kang Dynasty in 2025 and Avengers: Secret Wars in 2026. Furthermore, the future of the MCU remains unknown.
