"I am still aware of the fact that no Marvel film is filming," he wrote. "So, a full year of missing Marvel movies after Spider Man?"
Now, it is important to clarify a few points. Liefeld refers to Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, but if you want to break things down to be even more specific, Spider-Man: far from home can be part of the MCU is technically a Sony film, not Marvel Studios. For Marvel Studios movies, the next scheduled release date is not before May 1, 2020.
Although May 2, 2020 does not seem to be a long wait, it's important to remember that there have been two Marvel Cinematic Universe movies every year since almost Iron Manstarted in 2008. More recently, there have been three films a year, which was the case in 2018 with Black Panther, Avengers: war in the infinite, and Ant-Man and the wasp all releasing. The expectation of a new film from Marvel Studios may seem particularly long for narrative reasons. Although there has been a ton of speculation, innumerable theories and hopes, none of us really knows what will happen to them. End of Game, or Far from home, no more. While it is expected that the film will end the current chapter of the MCU, regardless of the new chapter opened, fans will want more, especially as Kevin Feige, director of studios Marvel Studios, had recently told Collider that everything that would follow would be "unique".
"Everything after[[[[Avengers] End of Game, and after Spider-Man: far from home, will be different and unique because we try to make all the movies. But seeing characters back is certainly something we are going to do and want to do. But also the introduction of characters that the majority of the world has never heard of, much like guardians [[[[of the galaxy], a bit like the Avengers before we did Avengers. And there are many, "said Feige to Collider at the Captain Marvel press tour.
Captain Marvel opens in theaters on March 8th. Other upcoming movies from Marvel Cinematic Universe: Avengers: End of the game April 26 and Spider-Man: far from home the 5 of July.
