AVENGERS: ENDGAME Director Joe Russo Vows That The MCU Will Be More Inclusive Moving Into Phase 4

Avengers: Endgame co-director Joe Russo has talked briefly about where things go next for the MCU once the Infinity Saga wraps up, and it sounds like this shared world will soon be even more diverse...

Avengers: Endgame is being billed as the end of an era for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and based on the movies we know are on the way from Marvel Studios over the next few years, it's clear that things are about to change a lot for this shared world. 

According to Joe Russo, once the Infinity Saga wraps up, we can look forward to an MCU that's more diverse and inclusive than ever before. "The future of these movies will be an inclusive one," the filmmaker revealed. "Diversity, both in front of and behind the camera, will be its gold standard."

The Eternals is rumoured to include a gay lead in the form of Hercules, while Shang-Chi will feature an Asian lead and director with Short Term 12's Destin Daniel Cretton at the helm. 

The MCU has been criticised in the past for not focusing enough on diversity and relegating many non-white characters to supporting roles, while we still haven't seen an LGBT lead in any of Marvel's movies. That changing is definitely a good thing, and while some trolls will take issue with it, this universe is finally about to start reflecting our own and that's long overdue.

What do you guys hope this means for the MCU moving forward?
