Marvel's Avengers: Forever is a 2019 live-action superhero ensemble film produced by 20th Century Fox and Marvel Studios. It is the twenty-seventh film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the culmination of every Marvel film that preceded it. It was released worldwide on May 3rd 2019.

Production

Since The Avengers was released in 2012 Marvel Studios had been teasing the arrival of Thanos and their desire to adapt the classic Infinity Gauntlet saga to the MCU. These plans began to truly solidify during Comic Con 2015 when Kevin Feige revealed the Phase 3's schedule would include two Avengers films that would star Thanos as the main villain and serve as the epic conclusion to the Avengers franchise. In 2018, the first film Avengers: Infinity Gauntlet was released and broke box office records around the world as well as ending on a cliffhanger where half of the universe's population was decimated by Thanos after snapping with all six Infinity Stones. This ramifications of this action were further explored during the end credit scenes of Ant-Man and the Wasp. With Kevin Feige even going on to state that none of the Avengers who disappeared at the end of Infinity Gauntlet would be main characters or be involved in the marketing for the next Avengers film.

At Comic Con 2018, the title for Avengers 4 was announced to be Avengers: Forever with Timothy Olyphant, Ruby Rose, and Jeffrey Wright all attached to undisclosed roles in the film. Despite the secrecy, speculation arose that the movie would take inspiration from the Avengers: Forever comic and introduce the concept of time travel. These theories appeared to be validated after Captain Marvel's end credit scene which implied Carol had time travelled to the future. Afterwards, the final trailer openly revealed Zachary Quinto's role as Kang as Conqueror in the movie all but confirming the presence of time travel.

Filming began in 2017 directly after Avengers: Infinity Gauntlet but was released almost exactly a year later on May 3rd 2019.
