Things in the MCU have changed a lot since Marvel Studios released Avengers: Endgame, which closed out the Infinity Saga. Since then, films released have been hit and miss with fans, and I’m noticing a lot more people are disappointed in the movies that Marvel is releasing. There’s definitely a noticeable drop in quality, but there are fans that are still enjoying them.

The most recent film to be released, which kicked off Phase 5, was Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, and that movie was met with mixed reviews. I’m hoping that the movies get better and Avengers: Endgame director Joe Russo believes that it will.

When asked about the new direction that the MCU is taking, Russo encouraged fans to put their faith in Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. He told Radio Times:

“There’s nobody better at telling stories than Kevin Feige right now. If you’re going to bet on anybody, you bet on him. I think that the type of story that unfolded in the phases that we worked on [was] a very specific kind of story that wrapped itself up in those phases and now it’s time for a new story, and I think that’s the direction that Marvel’s headed in. They’re telling you a very different story, a very new story and I think the audience just needs to be patient with the redirection because you can’t keep telling the same story over and over or you lose the audience.”

Russo went on to talk about the big swings that Marvel is taking:

“I think they’re taking some very big swings and they’re playing around with the tone and they’re championing diversity as much as anyone in the storytelling space right now and all of these things are huge wins for large-scale storytelling.”

I understand what he’s saying, I’m fine with the direction of the story that is involving Kang the Conqueror, but the quality of the films that tell that story could definitely be better. That script for Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quntimania was kind of a mess.

Marvel is going to be doing some ambitious and complicated storytelling over the next few years. They are playing with time travel and alternate universes, so they’ve got to tell strong stories with great scripts that make sense so that they can effectively pull it off.
