Anyway, that entire paragraph is an answer to a question about where Thanos will show up next. It's not Feige randomly going on about the future of the film universe. So I suppose if you remove any and all context you could read whatever you want into the statement, but in context there's a pretty strong implication.
What "straw man?"

To say nothing of the 3, 6 and 9 picture deals they made.

Trilogy and then another trilogy. Why not?

I see the words "trilogy," "final," "culmination," and "reboot" in those posts. Implying that you guys believe the Avengers is set up in an LOTR/SW trilogy format with a definite ending in Avengers 3. And then, maybe, wait 'n' see a decade down the road if we wanna reboot and start all over again, like Spidey and Bats, or prequel or requel or whatthefugever like X-Men and Star Wars and LOTR/Hobbitses.

And I fail to see *any* evidence whatsoever that this is Marvel/Feige's intention, up to and including that very quote you posted on the previous page. And I *sure* as hell fail to see where that would even remotely be a good idea.

Avengers is an *episodic franchise.* Like James Bond and Indiana Jones. And no, Indiana Jones was *not* a trilogy, nor was it ever planned to be one. It was episodic, and had four episodes --- more, if you want to include the Young Indy TV series --- and that's *exactly* what Avengers is, and how Avengers will play out.

Why? Because that's the way God and Stan Lee intended. He/They didn't need no frickin-frackin' trilogies....trilogies suck wind.


...They move like slick cotton on oil.
