How One Week Changed The Marvel Cinematic Universe Forever

How One Week Changed The Marvel Cinematic Universe Forever 2

In «What If…?» Season 1, Episode 3, «What If… the World Lost Its Mightiest Heroes?» Fury is shown doing his legendary runaround in order to gather these powerful champions together. Unfortunately, in this reality, his attempt is thwarted by a murderous Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), who kills off the heroes before they can unite. In the end, Fury appears to be building a different Avengers team, but the episode doesn’t show whether he is successful in his endeavor.

While this is an event from an alternative universe, it proves just how much the Avengers were really needed and would continue to be so right up until Thanos’ attack on Earth in «Avengers: Infinity War» and «Avengers: Endgame.» Looking back at this point in the MCU, though, it begs the question of whether Fury can pull off the same trick twice in a world that is now without the likes of Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) or Captain America Steve Rogers (Chris Evans).

It’s been five years, 11 movies, and nine TV shows since «Avengers: Endgame,» and a new era of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes has yet to be confirmed, let alone united. With that in mind, does Fury really have it in him to pull off a super-sized Hail Mary twice, and would he be able to do it in seven days like he did before? Marvel’s premier super-spy might have another wild week on the way to get a new band of Avengers together, but for now, «Fury’s Big Week» stands as a historical MCU achievement that is unlikely to ever be matched.
