    • During a press conference in October 2014, Feige confirmed that Phase Three would run between 2016 to 2019 and that Phase Four, and even additional phases, had already been planned or were being planned by saying that "[if] there are more years after 2019, then there will be movies. I hope there will be more years."[15]
