The president of Marvel, Kevin Feige, has said that hundreds of superheroes could join the MCU after the huge deal with Disney last year.

The MCU looks set to get a lot bigger.

The truth is Im excited for all of the [Fox properties]. And its not just the marquee names, you know, Kevin revealed while at the Golden Globes earlier this week.

He added to MTV News: There are hundreds of names on those agreements and the fact that Marvel is as close as we may ever get now to having access to all of the characters is something Ive been dreaming about for my almost 20 years at Marvel.

Its very exciting.

Back in December, the 45-year-old Marvel boss also opened up about the ending of Avengers Infinity War, as he explained that he never planned for the good guy to win.

We did Infinity War and Endgame at the same time, but those have been the longest gestating movies weve ever made.

Four years now, almost five years. And it was always about delivering on the promise that we had set up. And the way the world received Infinity War was amazing, it was exactly what we wanted.

Kevin enjoyed playing around with the idea of leaving the movie on a cliffhanger with villain Thanos seemingly being the victor, as he and his crew were tired of the predictable storyline of the good guy winning.

Speaking to Varietys Playback podcast, Kevin added: And that ending, which we had been working on for many years, and I do remember people, on all of the movies weve made and Im sure on many of the movies well make in the future, whenever the good guy wins, which is often – good guy, good woman, good hero wins – they go, “Eh, its kind of predictable. Good guy wins.”

Just a thought though, Kevin, we could sure do with a win at the end of Endgame.
