One film that Feige has talked about that could take Marvel in a completely different time-traveling direction is "The Eternals," a film set for release in 2020 which tells the story of two races created by Marvel's deities, The Celestials, millions of years in the past. The human-looking Eternals were created with superpowers to protect the earth from the other villainous race known as The Deviants. Feige suggested the movie could span over a 10,000-year period.
"Jack Kirby did an immense, amazing epic with Eternals that spans tens of thousands of years, and that's also something we haven't really done," Feige said in the same interview. "Which is why that among many other things post-Endgame, we find appealing."
Scarlett Johansson's "Black Widow" movie is also looking to be set before 2012's Avengers film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Harry Potter franchise has also been given a second life with its "Fantastic Beast" franchise, set 70 years prior to the Daniel Radcliffe- Harry Potter adventures. 2016's "Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them" grossed over $814 million worldwide but its 2018 sequel, "Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grimwald" grossed just over $653 million worldwide, according to Box Office Mojo.
Doug Stone, president of Box Office Analyst stressed that Marvel's assembly of characters is a strong advantage for its future and that there is a "substantial comic book fandom out there that knows the characters."
"Marvel's advantage is that there is a long list of characters that inhabit the Marvel Universe, and there is a substantial comic book fandom out there that knows the characters," Stone said. "The flexibility that Marvel has is to draw upon numerous characters and numerous storylines that have been in existence for quite some time via the comics. In the Marvel universe The Avengers changed numerous times over the comic book history encountering new and different foes all the while. That is not what I'd call prequel-itis."
"Audiences accepted a giant purple alien with a rhinestone glove killing half of the universe, so the sky's the limit for what Marvel can adapt now and they have 80 years of stories to pull from and all of their characters are available now," added media influencer Jeremy Conrad.
"The MCU has twenty-one movies of solid success to build off and where they are now, where they successfully made the Infinity Gauntlet a $2 billion success in live action, means there's really no limit to the crazy stories they can pull from in the comics and turn into live-action films," Conrad later concluded.
