One of the most well-known producers and the man behind wonderful shows like Lost, Damon Lindelof, has made a statement about the future of Marvel.
The producer said that he is eagerly anticipating the conclusion of the Marvel film series. He believes that the genuine quality of Marvel’s conventional movies is inevitably suffering as a result of the sheer volume of projects the studio keeps producing one after the other.
Marvel Studios Future Plans For MCU
The SDCC of this year proved to have met the expectations of Marvel Studios. The franchise’s fans have been eagerly awaiting SDCC 2022 because it was thought that Kevin Fiege would reveal a plethora of upcoming projects.
Naturally, everything at Comic-Con went as planned, and when Kevin Fiege began naming new projects and wouldn’t stop, the crowd was floored. The studio made sure that none of its fans went hungry when it came to new releases, from the conclusion of the franchise’s current Phase-4 with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (out on November 11) to the start of Phase-5 with Ant-Man & The Wasp (scheduled for release on February 17, 2023).
In fact, Marvel has already outlined its film production schedule through 2024.

There is no denying that Marvel has produced some of the best television series and programs ever but it was established that Marvel’s film output is declining in quality. Damon Lindelof said,
“From a slightly more cynical standpoint, this is a business. It’s an industry. And if you make a couple of great Marvel movies, the instinct is, ‘We need to make more Marvel movies, and we need to expand this.’ And I have this sort of interior feeling of like, ‘Wow, I wish they made less because it would make each one that came out a little bit more special.’ But I watch all of them. People don’t want things to end. I do.”
The producer agreed that it is not easy to let something as amazing go so easily but sometimes it’s necessary.
“It’s always going to be hard because once you’ve got someone’s attention, you want to keep it. And so the idea of letting it go and not knowing if you’re ever going to get it back again is sort of like, it’s antithetical to the way that we’re wired.”
Many fans have been concerned that Marvel may be abandoning its quality standards while releasing its films, especially after the underwhelming reception Eternals garnered from the audience and whatever it was we saw in the She-Hulk trailer.
The fact that Marvel has a boatload of projects in the works may also be playing a role in the decline in the quality we are used to.
Damon Lindelof, an accomplished producer, and showrunner who is also a major Marvel fan may have made the statements he did for this reason.
