During Kevin Feige's live Marvel presentation, a massive timeline for the Marvel Cinematic Universe was shown on the big screen, with titles being unveiled throughout the half-hour event. One date in particular, May 4, 2018, was kept a mystery until the very end, when the producer/Marvel Studios president had this to say.
"Let's talk about the notion that we have always had a plan. We have always had a plan, from the moment Nick Fury broke into Tony Stark's house, and told him he was a part of a bigger universe, he just didn't know it yet. I think he knows it now, and, by May 4, 2018, everybody will know it, because it is the beginning of the culmination of everything that has come before."
After that brief statement, a collage of footage was shown from past Marvel movies, which ended with The Mad Titan Thanos holding the Infinity Gauntlet, leading to the official logo for Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 (May 4, 2018) and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 (May 3, 2019), confirming a rumor that surfaced in September.
Here's what Kevin Feige had to say after the applause finally died down after the big reveal.
"It is unbelievably exciting for us to continue building a plan that all of you tell us you like, and you believe in this plan. Now it's going to kick into a whole other gear."
He went on to show us a brief scene from Avengers: Age of Ultron, which isn't the scene that will be featured during tonight's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and takes place in the middle of the movie, "after the Avengers have gotten their asses kicked by Ultron."
The scene takes place at what appears to be Steve Rogers' (Chris Evans) cabin, with Steve and Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) both chopping wood outside. The scene starts with Tony asking Steve if he knows where Thor (Chris Hemsworth) went, with Steve replying, "Sometimes my teammates don't tell me things. I was hoping Thor would be the exception." Tony mentions that "the Maximoff kid" was spotted showing Thor something, but wasn't clear what that may be. It seems there is quite a bit of tension between these two Avengers, with Tony mentioning that Steve "walked away," adding that he doesn't trust anyone without a dark side. They both get into an argument about starting wars before they begin, with Steve getting so angry that he splits a massive log with his bare hands.
