SFX - - Marvel Phase 3 -

Ev­ery­thing ends here, as the fi­nal show­down be­tween the he­roes of the Marvel Uni­verse and the forces of Thanos brings Phase Three to a close.

It’s a safe bet that this will not only be the fi­nale to the In­fin­ity War two- parter, but also some­thing of a cli­max to the MCU’s pre­vi­ous 11 years of ad­ven­tures. If the ground­work has been laid cor­rectly, there’s the chance for this to be a gi­gan­tic block­buster that truly cap­tures the sense of epic scale and multi- stranded plot­ting fea­tured in a typ­i­cal Marvel “event” comic. Of course, event comic sto­ry­telling can some­times back­fire, and there’ll also be the is­sue of keep­ing all th­ese dis­parate el­e­ments from can­celling each other out. But we have con­fi­dence. This is the stu­dio that made the im­pos­si­ble ex­pec­ta­tions of the first Avengers film work, af­ter all. What­ever hap­pens, Marvel is go­ing to have a hell of a chal­lenge work­ing out what to do next…

Cap­tain Marvel prov­ing that Ly­cra is in­deed stretchy and colour­ful.
