Last year, Disney bought Fox’s assets for a whopping $54.4 billion. The deal gives Disney the rights over popular superhero characters like Deadpool and the Fantastic Four, which can now be introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as and when they choose.
These aren’t the only superheroes we can expect to see popping up in Marvel films. Marvel boss, Kevin Feige, has revealed that there are hundreds of new characters to play with.
“The truth is I’m excited for all of them,” Feige told MTV News at the Golden Globes. “And it’s not just the marquee names, you know.”
“There are hundreds of names on those agreements and the fact that Marvel is as close as we may ever get now to having access to all of the characters is something I’ve been dreaming about for my almost 20 years at Marvel.
He added: “It’s very exciting.”
So basically, the end of the Avengers era does not mean the end of Marvel. Disney have plans to introduce a whole new range of characters so that the franchise can continue.
If you’re not a Marvel fan and feel that the superhero market is already over-saturated then bad luck, there’s plenty more to come.
