Marvel Studios President and producer Kevin Feige has offered hints long suspected in fanboy circles, suggesting the upcoming “Captain Marvel” will lead into a fourth “Avengers” film.
In an interview with Indie Wire, Feige discussed the plan moving forward after the fourth “Avengers” film and how the Captain Marvel film will play a big role in bringing the current story to a close. “We’re really focusing on ‘Captain Marvel’ and the work that Anna and Ryan are doing,” said the Marvel honcho. “It’s going to be a big part of heading towards this epic conclusion and epic finale of 22 movies over the course of 10 years. That is focus for the next six movies we have to finish and get out.”
Feige added: “The focus now is on delivering ‘Captain Marvel’ and then bringing Captain Marvel’s story into the finale of everything we’ve started thus far.”

“Captain Marvel” starring Brie Larson as the studio’s first female superhero to get her own standalone movie will be a prequel set before “Iron Man.”
Samuel L. Jackson will also return as Nick Fury for the film — this time without the eyepatch because the film will be set in the 1990s (presumably before he lost use of his left eye).
Directed by “Mississippi Grind” helmers Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, “Captain Marvel” will also feature the first-ever appearance of iconic Marvel alien antagonists, The Skrulls.
