In an exciting new Vanity Fair profile, celebrating a decade of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, 44-year-old Feige lifted the lid on what the studio has planned.

"We've got another 20 movies on the docket that are completely different from anything that's come before – intentionally," he said.

And Disney CEO Bob Iger tantalised fans even more by adding that "there will be two distinct periods" in the MCU, "Everything before Avengers 4 and everything after."

He continued: "I know it will not be in ways people are expecting."

Marvel Studios has created 22 films to date including three Thor films, three Captain America films, three Iron Man movies, two Avengers movies, two Guardians of the Galaxy instalments, Doctor Strange, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Ant-Man and The Incredible Hulk.

Forthcoming movies are Captain Marvel, Black Panther, two further Avengers films and Ant-Man and the Wasp.

The movies released so far have made $10.1 billion (£7.6 bn) at the international box office with The Avengers raking in the most money.

The 2012 film made $623 million (£467m) theatrically.

Marvel Studios currently possess the rights to 7,000 characters.

Avengers: Infinity War – the next instalment in Marvel's franchise – is released on April 27 2018.
