SINGAPORE (Jun 3): Avengers: Endgame may have smashed box-office records, but it disappointed some fans. One moviegoer was reported to have needed counselling because she was grief-stricken: Could Iron Man really be gone?

“It is pretty impossible Avengers: Endgame will be the end [of The Avengers]. Disney spent US$4.24 billion to buy Marvel Studios,” says Ron Tan, executive chairman and group CEO of Cityneon Holdings, which was privatised in January. Sequels, prequels and spin-offs are likely to continue, he indicates.

In fact, Black Panther, Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy sequels are underway, Tan says. A Black Widow movie is also believed to be in production but since Natasha Romanoff appears to have been killed off in Avengers: Endgame, movie buffs reckon the movie will be a prequel. Meanwhile, streaming service Disney+, which will be launched in the fourth quarter of this year, is likely to screen the Falcon and the Winter Soldier series in 2020. Tan keeps a close eye on Marvel movies, spinoffs and characters. Falcon and the Winter Soldier will provide Cityneon with the opportunity to create more immersive experiences in its exhibitions.
