There will be a fifth Avengers, Marvel confirms

One of this year's most talked-about movies was Avengers: Endgame, which was believed to be the last instalment in the series.

Now, much to the delight of superhero fans around the world, Marvel has announced that there will be a fifth Avengers movie. The exciting announcement was made by studio executive, Kevin Feige, at the San Diego Comic-Con.

Feige revealed that the Avengers crew would be shaken up by the introduction of new characters.

"It will be a very different team than we've seen before," he explained to MTV. "That's what Endgame was all about. It will be a very different incarnation of the team with some people you've already met and some you haven't met yet."

But while this announcement is exciting, according to Feige, the movie won't be hitting the big screen for a while.

"Well, it's what I love about the Marvel comic method of storytelling," he continued. "That's not anything we invented, I love that things build up, they build to a crescendo, they all get together, they separate, they change.

"And now we get to do that, not just in movies but in these mega-event series on Disney Plus, [which] has just invigorated all of us at Marvel Studios to keep going."

It should come as no surprise that Marvel is continuing the Avengers' story. Endgame broke Avatar's record to become the highest-grossing movie of all time.

Discussing this achievement in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Alan Horn, Disney Studios co-chairman and chief creative officer, said: "A huge congratulations to the Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Studios teams, and thank you to the fans around the world who lifted Avengers: Endgame to these historic heights."

He continued: "Of course, even with the passage of a decade, the impact of James Cameron's Avatar remains as powerful as ever, and the astonishing achievements of both of these films are ongoing proof of the power of movies to move people and bring them together in a shared experience."

"The talented filmmakers behind these worlds have much more in store, and we look forward to the future of both the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Pandora [the alien world where Avatar is set]."
