He didn’t give anything away about the much-anticipated MCU Phase 4, but he did offer some intriguing granular updates on the history and future of the MCU.
Feige stated that the upcoming Disney+ MCU shows, including WandaVision and the one about Loki, will feature stories that are “totally and completely” woven in the main MCU movies coming up. The executive also confirmed that Marvel Studios generally has a five-year plan for the MCU, though the team does less specific planning on a much longer timeline. What’s more, he suggested that other people at Marvel did not want Robert Downey Jr. to play Iron Man, and that he personally had to fight to get him cast in the role.
