    Isn’t Disney going to run into problems after “Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 and 2”?

    In “The Avengers”, Earth was threatened by Loki trying to enslave humanity. “Avengers:Age of Ultron”, Ultron terrorizes Earth with a city-sized asteroid. Those are two planet menaces, but both beaten by a team.

    Now with “Avengers: Infinity War – Part I” (2018) and “Avengers: Infinity War – Part II” (2019), the universe (maybe even the multiverse) will be in peril. We know some superhero team will defeat Thanos, but then what? With the pressure of giving fans more each time, how do you top saving the universe?

    My idea or prediction:

    This MCU started with Iron Man in 2008 and whatever phase they are on (maybe the third) ends in 2019. Slate had an article years ago about the “reminiscence bump.” Researchers looking for the answer on why we have an affinity for the the third decade of our lives. Why we give those years real importance. It might be the way humans in their 20’s encode information.

    look at this:

    This remembering of our 20’s just might be a way to construct who we are. Learning to understand ourselves. A time for firsts, when you get married, travel, etc, positive things. Maybe a time we think will predict our life ahead. But there can be a second “reminiscence bump” later in life, when emotion is high, say for those who went through a war.

    Slate says researchers have noticed Hollywood remakes happen about twenty years after the originals came out. The MCU will have spanned from 2008 to 2019. The young ones, who saw the MCU and loved them, are now are in control of content. Fast forward some years, we get close to 20 years and they reboot the whole thing. Use a different long-running story line with new actors.

    Over-thinking? yeah probably, but its the internet.

    BTW, Weird Things favorite Neil deGrasse Tyson’s NatGeo showed renewed for second season.

    some think maybe world currencies losing against the dollar is hurting box office.
