The upcoming Avengers 4 movie will serve as a “finale” of sorts for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

According to Vanity Fair, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige says the 2019 installment of the Avengers films marks the last contracted film for a number of the actors who play key characters. 

“There will be two distinct periods,” Feige notes. “Everything before Avengers 4 and everything after. I know it will not be in ways people are expecting.” 

Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on May 4, 2018, with Avengers 4 set to follow on May 3, 2019.

Disney promises that Marvel has at least another 20 years' worth of characters and worlds to explore; moviegoers, for now, will simply have to trust in Kevin Feige. As the @MarvelStudios president says, "[We're] 22 movies in, and we've got another 20 movies on the docket that are completely different from anything that’s come before—intentionally."
