After the trailer of ‘Avengers: Endgame’, people have been constantly talking about the last film from the Marvel on the Avengers franchise. 

Endgame will mark the end of the third phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Also, a new phase will commence after Endgame and new superheroes are said to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

The first three phases of MCU will be called 'The Infinity Saga'. 
Marvel Studio president Kevin Feige told Empire Magazine spoke about The Infinity Saga and said, "We wanted to bring to a conclusion a series of movies in a way that had never been done before."

He also referred to other franchises like 'Harry Potter' and 'Lord of The Rings' and said, "Harry Potter had an ending because there were only so many books. Lord of the Rings too. But we thought, 22 movies in, wouldn't it be fun to bring some finality to the storyline.”

Kevin also explained that the said title is appropriate as all the 22 films of Avengers are loosely connected to Infinity stones and all major superheroes come together to fight for the cosmos. 

For those who don’t recall, the Avengers: Infinity War had superheroes Black Panther, Spider-Man, Nick Fury, Doctor Strange and Scarlet Witch shatter to dust, while Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, Hulk, Thor and War Machine were the Avengers who survived Thanos’ snap. 

The film is set to return on April 26, 2019.
