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.
