Marvel writer explains how they figured out the secret to sequels

In the 11 years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we've had three films each for Captain America, Iron Man and Thor, as well as four Avengers movies.

That is a lot of movies – viewer fatigue could've been very real.

To be Iron Man 3 and Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw writer Drew Pearce thinks he knows what the secret sauce is to prevent us all from getting bored.

Speaking to Collider in a video interview, Pearce said: “What I think is so enjoyable about [the MCU] is somewhere through the process, […] Kevin saw what the whole rest of some other movie makers are catching up on which is – delivering the old sequel mindset was 'Give them the same again, but more'.

'' And I think Kevin realized at a certain point that giving the audience the same thing was a diminishing return, both creatively and on a business level, and that's when he started to go: 'What if he did the same character but we put it in a different genre? '

"And your mileage may vary on how different the movies are from each other but I love the fact they approach each movie as if it's a movie from a different genre, and I think that's an absolute genius."

We're just speculating here, but we imagine the mixed reception to either Iron Man 2 or Chris Hemsworth's favorite, Thor: The Dark World made Feige realize he needed to up his game with sequels (and if it was the latter, they would have seen how much better-received Captain America: The Winter Soldier was above practically every other MCU film at that point).

Avengers: Endgame is out on digital download on August 19 and physical release on September 2, available to pre-order on DVD, Blu-ray, 3D and 4K now.
