Avengers movies might continue, according to Disney's Bob Iger

Tony Stark was a busy boy after Ebony Maw's spaceship landed in NY but prior to that intergalactic smackdown, you may remember a scene where Tony's jogging through the park and chatting with Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) about their future. From there, the choice to include Red Skull became the right choice because of the finale of Captain America: The First Avenger, which saw the character blasted into space by one of the stones (in that instance, the Tesseract) - thus resulting in his imprisonment on Vormir. If it's not the hero they've just seen, it's the one that was teased in the final credits. ("Infinity War" also raked in the second-best second weekend ever).

Using her powers, Scarlet witch valiantly defends him from two of Thanos' enforcers. To which Drax yells: "I'll do you one better: Why is Gamora?"

Well if you, like me, thought this was the case, you clearly have zero understanding of how Hollywood works. So let's see where they go with this.

"We meet on a regular basis with our Marvel team, and we've plotted out Marvel movies that will take us well into the next decade", Iger said.

"A new franchise beyond "Avengers" could mean many things, but when taking this into consideration, it could mean that the next phases of the MCU will build to "event" movies that don't necessarily revolve around the Avengers.

Mr. Iger looking like he just gained consciousness and walked out of Madame Tussaud's.

City seek a century as Swansea hope for a miracle
It's a sad day obviously, but this season has been very hard for me. Today I wanted to see the same focus we displayed [at Swansea]".

Infinity War is still in the early days of its record-breaking run, though said records might very well fall this time next year when the now untitled Avengers 4 arrives in theaters.

Which brings me to my point.

Iger was speaking at the Disney's quarterly conference call with investors. Perhaps Ant-Man's dalliances in the Quantum Realm could facilitate such a plot.

After the worldwide and record-breaking success of "Avengers: Infinity War", more "Avengers" movies could still be made Disney announced on Tuesday. To me, it felt like they didn't have much for him to do and were kind of spinning their wheels- which is a shame because I loved where they were going with the character in The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron. "There's certainly a lot more stories to tell, a lot more characters to populate those stories with", Iger said.

Marvel Studios is owned by ABC News' parent company, Disney.
