Marvel Considers Original Six New Avengers Movie
A prospect exists of a film revolving around the original six Avengers members of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Phase 6 is presently expecting the release of two Avengers films: Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars. Those films were intended to feature a new version of the renowned team, as half of the original Avengers departed the MCU after four films. Nevertheless, the condition of the new Avengers appears to be fluctuating.
Variety has published a shocking report suggesting that Marvel may return to the original six Avengers. Discussions have reportedly taken place regarding a new film featuring the original Avengers cast; the MCU’s recent difficulties have contributed to this possibility. In the upcoming Avengers film, Hawkeye, Iron Man, Captain America, and the Hulk will all be reunited. The characters of Robert Downey Jr. and Scarlett Johansson would be reborn for the film.
Will There Be a New Avengers Movie Starring All Six Original Cast Members?
Given the significant criticism that Phase 4 received, it is rational for Marvel to examine what worked for the Marvel Cinematic Universe and decide on the return of the original Avengers. According to the report, Marvel is reportedly contemplating reuniting the original Avengers cast for a new film, but the studio still needs to make a definitive decision on the matter. The amount of work that would be required to reunite the original Avengers cast is one of the factors that would prevent the film from being produced.
The report estimates that Robert Downey Jr. (a.k.a. Iron Man) earned approximately $25 million for his role in Iron Man 3. Consistent with previous Marvel Cinematic Universe films, actor compensation tends to escalate with each installment, which could cause the potential cost of the original cast for the forthcoming Avengers film to exceed $200 million. The additional expenses for marketing, visual effects, reshoots, and more would make the potential return of the original Avengers among the most costly films in history.
As evidenced by the nearly $3 billion Avengers: Endgame, a film featuring the original Avengers would almost undoubtedly generate a profit for Marvel despite the potentially enormous budget. Both fans and critics have criticized the Marvel Cinematic Universe post-Endgame for lacking purpose and experiencing a decline in quality. Although the prospective film would contradict the newly formed Avengers team, it has the potential to revitalize the Marvel Cinematic Universe by reuniting fan favorites who had lost interest. The MCU will be enhanced if the original Avengers return for a sequel, although that remains to be seen.
