Superheroes and Villains : Disney considering less MCU sequels

Disney considering less MCU sequels
It seems like we can and should expect fewer sequels in the solo franchises, according to recent comments from Disney CEO Bob Iger.

Iger recently spoke at Morgan Stanley's 2023 Technology Media and Telecom Conference and, per IndieWire, he addressed the future of the MCU. The executive at the top of Disney's food chain spoke with optimism about the future of the company's biggest franchise, though he did make it clear that some things are going to change. Here's what he said:

"Marvel — there were 7,000 characters, there are a lot more stories to tell. What we have to look at at Marvel is not necessarily the volume of Marvel storytelling, but how many times we go back to the well on certain characters. Sequels typically work well for us. Do you need a third or a fourth, or is it time to turn to other characters? There's nothing in any way inherently off in terms of the Marvel brand. I think we just have to look at what characters or stories we're mining. And if you look at the trajectory of Marvel over the next five years, you're going to see a lot of newness. We're going to turn back to the Avengers franchise, but with a whole set of different Avengers."

Re: Disney considering less MCU sequels

It's not the sequels that have been the weakest point, it's the movies about minor superheroes like the Eternals, Black Widow, Ant-Man, Captain Marvel, that are failing to generate much interest. They need to focus on the most popular characters again. A new Captain America movie or a new Iron Man movie would be massive.
