No Avengers Team In The MCU Right Now, Confirms Kevin Feige
What happened to the Avengers after 2019’s Avengers Endgame? Three years later, we now know the answer. At D23 (via Comic Book.com), Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige revealed that there is no active Avengers team or organization in the Marvel Cinematic Universe anymore.
Kevin Feige said:
“Just because there isn’t an organization like the Avengers anymore, but we now have the Thunderbolts.”
Feige also said that that’s also the reason why the Thunderbolts team will be introduced; in order to fill the vacuum left behind by the Avengers.
At D23 last night, Marvel Studios also announced the roster of the MCU’s version of the Thunderbolts, which will consist of Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh), Alexei Shostakov AKA the Red Guardian (David Harbour), Bucky Barnes AKA the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), Ava Starr AKA Ghost (Hannah John-Kamen), Antonia Dreykov AKA Taskmaster (Olga Kurylenko), Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) and John F. Walker AKA the US Agent (Wyatt Russell).
However, it’s highly likely that the surviving former Avengers will not be standing idly by while the Thunderbolts assemble. The status of the original Avengers members in the MCU are: Iron Man and Black Widow both died to defeat Thanos. Captain America is now an old man, retired and perhaps dead as well. Hawkeye seems to be retired as well, though still alive and well on Earth. Thor is out in the galaxy defending it and being a father to his new adopted “daughter”. The Hulk is also out in the galaxy somewhere (on the way to Sakaar).
That leaves only the other superheroes like Captain America Sam Wilson, Doctor Strange, She-Hulk, Moon Knight and others, who aren’t founding members of the Avengers. Maybe it’s time for a New Avengers in the MCU. We’ll have to wait and see.
