If everything in this post holds true once the movie comes out, then I’m sorry. If you look at the date this gets posted, you can make an educated guess that I have not watched the movie yet nor have I been invited to any of its premieres.
So for as long as I can remember (before the latest updates, at least), there has been three different groups shelling out different Marvel comics franchises.
- Fantastic Four and X-men – Fox
- Spider-man and Venom – Sony
- Everybody in the MCU – Marvel Studios
Since Disney owns Marvel and Disney just acquired Fox for $71 Billion, Disney now owns 2/3 of the Marvel movie franchises. We all know that Sony would not budge in giving up Spider-man and that Marvel even got into a sh*tty deal with Sony just to let Spider-man in the MCU but that does not mean that Marvel owns Spidey. Even with Spider-man Homecoming, Marvel did not earn much from that just so that Spidey gets some MCU lovin’.
Now, here are my predictions to what can potentially happen in Avengers: Endgame. With the introduction of Captain Marvel being the most powerful being who can actually stand a chance against Thanos, there is that probability that she will be the one who can put a stop to the Mad Titan’s reign and reverse the effects of The Decimation.
Since the Infinity Gauntlet would be in her hands, there is also a chance that she can change realities using the Reality Stone (duh).
Treating the entire MCU as an actual reality, I am thinking that the way they can introduce the Fox franchises is by making it appear that the Fantastic Four and X-men were from a different reality parallel to MCU’s that’s why both realities haven’t crossed paths in the past. So with that in mind, Marvel can now then justify introducing the X-men and Fantastic Four to the MCU. Same as how they can potentially “return” Spider-man back to Sony, I am seeing that ol’ web head will disappear from the MCU.
So that means, after Avengers: Endgame, we will then see the X-men, Fantastic Four, and the Avengers cross paths more than once and we will also NOT see Spider-man in any of them.
Those are just my thoughts. Tell me what you think.
