    I would think that competing with Rooker's Yondo for biggest would be Michonne(TWD)'s Danai Gurira being Okoye in Black Panther.

    Ross Marquand took over the role of Red Skull for the last two Avengers movies.

    I think one of those quotes isn't suppose to be there. ;)

    oops. I don't remember quoting that post, but it wouldn't be the first time that I've accidentally hit the quote key while scrolling through.

    Oh, god I can't believe I forgot about Danai Gurira, she's awesome in both roles.
    Holy crap, I had no idea that was Aaron from TWD.

    Based on the below two images, I'd say it's time to start a petition demanding this particular episode of the series be not animation, but live action! :p

    Yearly, big, can't miss this crossovers are what killed off a good portion of comic readers in the 90s. The movie wing of Marvel has learned well.

    Even if they never have an event as big as Endgame ever again, I have no doubt that there is a plan moving forward. Various plot threads that will make their way through the various movies and come to a conclusion somewhere down the line. Feige has said as recently as this weekend that there will eventually be a new team of Avengers because it's the nature of the Avengers group to be constantly changing and evolving its membership.

    Oh yeah, I'm sure there will be threads that build, I think it'll just be a slower build than it has been in the past.

    ^ Slower than the four years between the release of Iron Man and The Avengers, no doubt.

    Kevin feige already has everything planned out through phase 5, but it was decided to only reveal the phase 4 movies. It was decided that revealing 11 projects over over two years was enough for the moment.

    Maybe not that much slower, but it sounds like we at least won't be getting the big crossovers, which was where the main story arc moved forward the most, as often.

    The three movies a year plus TV projects helps them pack it in. 2020 to 2021 would be very short for a phase in the past.

    Feige talked about Phase 4 having 11 pieces, but only 10 of those pieces were announced, so that more than likely means that the 11th is "Spider-Man 3", which is Sony's project to announce.

    Yeah, that makes sense. As PT Barnum said, always leave them wanting more.

    Yes, bloated, "This is it!" / "Biggest ever!!" / "Epic!!" / "Maxi-whatever!" lost its meaning when it was happening with such ridiculous frequency and for no good reason (for the readers). For the films, getting back to actually focusing on individuals instead of Easter eggs and "It's coming!" is the only way for audiences to care about characters as relatable, instead of a mere piece to be moved in the next big battle, whatever that may be.
