It is time to move on!
The “Battle of New York,” the MCU-defining event that happened in the early Avengers, was so significant that virtually everything that came out after it referred to it. Both on TV and in movies there were a lot of quotes about the conflict between the heroes and the Chitauri led by Loki. Equally important was the snap of Thanos’ fingers, also referred to as “desolation” or “blip” by many fans, but it shouldn’t be given so much attention on the future, according to Kevin Feige himself.
In an interview with Variety, Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, revealed that snapping fingers shouldn’t be the focus of MCU Phase 4 and that future productions won’t touch too much on that:
“While we were developing and working on all of these things, maybe two years ago, I started talking about the ‘blip’ – the event where Thanos drastically changed everything between Infinite War and Ultimatum, this which has given people this universal and global intergalactic experience. – it would serve us well, but we had to keep looking ahead and going to new places. I was worried that this would turn out to be another ‘Battle of New York’, which happened in the third act of Avengers 1 and ended up being referenced consistently and in some ways, some better than others. I was worried about it.
During the interview, Feige also reiterated that he wanted a future reference to the “Have more meaning behind” click, and even came to recognize some unexpected similarities between “the hit” and the COVID-19 pandemic.
And do you think enough references to the desolation caused by Thanos going forward are enough? Do not forget to comment!
