The LATimes sat down with Avengers: Endgame screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, asking them what they’d like to see happen in the future. Christopher is very excited to see what Kevin Feige will do with X-Men and Fantastic Four properties, suggesting again that the aim seems to be a complete reboot. Something we’ve assumed since the merger talks because of the many many continuity issues the Singerverse comes with if you plan on carrying it over, along with the connection to Bryan Singer.

LA TIMES: What would you like to see next for the next three phases of the MCU?

MARKUS: It’ll be fascinating to see what Kevin Feige does with the properties he’s now getting from the Fox merger with X-Men and Fantastic Four. And to see what the MCU version of those things is, because I very much doubt it will be something that resembles what you’ve seen before. So that will be very exciting.

Stephen adds how exciting the prospect of covering more character stuff with Disney+ streaming series like Falcon and Winter Soldier.

MCFEELY: And streaming is really interesting [in terms of] longer-form storytelling. The MCU is one big long-form story, but to be able to spend six or eight hours with Falcon and the Winter Soldier getting deeper into that story, I think that is really intriguing.

Markus and McFeely are certainly the kinds of writers we’d hope would be allowed to help integrate X-Men and the Fantastic Four into the greater Marvel Cinematic Universe. They’ve done a great job over the years helping with the world building writing Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame.

Not to mention, their ability to tackle a large number of characters, which the X-Men is known for and has had issues giving everyone on the roster enough character moments in previous films from Fox. I’d love for them to tackle X-Men if that opportunity was given to them.
