Marvel Studios has just released its 22nd movie, Avengers: Endgame, bringing to an end years' worth of connected storytelling and making a ridiculous amount of money in the process.

The MCU isn't showing signs of slowing down, however. While it hasn't announced much yet, we know that many films are in the works, and it's been pumping out three a year since 2017. Beyond that, there's a whole host of TV shows across multiple services and networks.

It's a lot to keep track of, and there have been inevitable conversations about whether there's too much going on, and a worry that audiences will start experiencing 'superhero fatigue'.

Kevin Feige isn't bothered about it, though. Marvel Studios' head honcho took part in a Reddit Ask Me Anything where he said: "Nobody would get fatigued before the creative forces at Marvel Studios, who do this 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so we believe that if we're still taking risks and making unique choices to keep ourselves excited, the audience will feel the same way."

Marvel has been mixing up the formula for a few years by getting downright weird. We're talking homicidal raccoons and magical out of body experiences.
