A report from Variety published this Wednesday (1st) detailed a supposed emergency plan by Marvel to try to improve the studio’s current situation.
According to the article, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is in a crisis caused by different factors and, in an attempt to rescue those who stopped watching the heroes’ productions, Disney may even bring characters who died on the big screen.
Sources who have remained anonymous allege that there are talks among top executives to “bring back the original team for a The Avengers“.
Names like Robert Downey Jr.Tony Stark/Iron Man, and Scarlett JohanssonBlack Widow, were the only ones mentioned by name, but others may be in the studio’s plans.

Both characters died in the events of Avengers: Endgame and part of the cast’s contract ended after production, but reviving heroes or villains with some cosmic or mystical power is a common feature in comic books from the publisher.
Is Marvel in crisis?
In the report from Varietythe various problems currently encountered by Disney are listed — some of them beyond its control or planning.
The crisis involving Jonathan Majors, for example, took the studio by surprise. Cast as the villain Kang, who would be a constant presence in series and films in the new arcs, the actor is currently facing accusations of assault that could cost his future in the saga and lead Marvel to change already well-established plans. The actor denies having committed the crime.

Furthermore, the company is about to face a possible strike in the visual effects sector, with professionals in the field in the process of unionizing and asking for better working conditions such as deadlines — there was a lot of criticism about the use of computer graphics in series such as She-Hulk or movies like Thor: Love and Thunder.
Another problem is in criticism of Disney+ superhero series is drop in box office both films with high expectations from executives, and Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumaniaor those with reduced disclosure, such as future The Marvels.
One of the ongoing productions cited as chaotic is that of Bladea feature film that revives the franchise immortalized by Wesley Snipes and was originally supposed to come out in 2023.
Possibly starring Mahershala Ali (Moonlight), the idea has already gone through several script rewrites and seems increasingly distant from the original proposal, now scheduled for release in 2025.
