The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, the first and last line of defense against those who want to harm the planet. Originally composed of Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Black Widow and Hawkeye, the roster evolved over the years.
At first, the team disbanded, then a few years later, leaving the Avengers was treated as a full-time job (see 2015) age of Ultron) Eventually he found himself divided over the Sokovia Accords and began to fight.
It was not until many years later that they regrouped to stop Thanos and his army. but after avengers: endgameThe team has been MIA, having lost Steve, Tony and Nat, with the rest going their separate ways. But fans from 2019 had a question on their mind: Are the Avengers, as an organized team, still in operation?
Feige provides avengers status updates
Speaking on stage today at D23 Expo announcing from lightning Lineup, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, Via disney tester, Confirmed that the Avengers are not currently present in the MCU. after the events of avengers: endgame, “Just because there’s no organization like the Avengers anymore, but now we have the Thunderbolts.”
Also, Captain America himself, Anthony Mackie, is said to be the hero of the previous Avengers. “Everyone… unemployed” speaking in an interview with Diversity What happened after the presentation:
“All the Avengers are unemployed. We have a new and improved group. No, they’re there with their Metamucil and, ya know, hanging out. You know, we’re new guys… now we’re top dogs.”
When Mackie (inexplicably?) was asked if he was really the new Captain America, the actor replied, “I think we’ll have to see… in 2024.”
When faced with an inquiry about how long he had been in the superhero game, Mackie did some wrong mental math and mistakenly said “2008.”
Are the Thunderbolts the New Go-To Team?
If the Avengers aren’t a thing for a while, will the Thunderbolts step in to fill that void?
Little is known about the MCU’s Thunderbolts beyond their confirmed roster: Yelena Belova, Taskmaster, Bucky Barnes, John Walker, Red Guardian and Ava Starr aka Ghost. It appears that the group is also being led by Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s Valentina. But their motivations and what initially brought them together is still unclear.
Perhaps they’ll operate as a government-sanctioned superhero team that can be put in charge on a short leash. The Avengers were never known to follow global rules and regulations, so a team that could actually be controlled would be seen as a great advantage.
Of course, the Avengers will come together again Avengers: Kang Dynasty And Avengers: Secret WarsDue out in 2025, and possibly led by Anthony Mackie’s Captain America. Captain America: New World Order landing on 3rd May 2024 and from lightning Will hit theaters on 26 July 2024.
