Many fans on social media have labeled Feige as desperate for this move, mainly because the stories of these returning characters were summed up with 2019’s Avengers: Endgame, so their return would make no sense.

Actor Jonathan Majors has been embroiled in controversy due to allegations made against him. Due to these allegations, Marvel has been reportedly planning to replace Majors. There are also reports that the studio might completely get rid of his character and replace it with an entirely different villain.
