As Avengers: Age of Ultron begins to settle in theaters, it's time we address Feige's claim that the Marvel Cinematic Universe will never take a dark turn despite the certain doom shown in some trailers. This is what Joss Whedon has said about Feige's input on any dark turns in the MCU.
There is no dark turn in the MCU. He says every year fans come up to him and ask him if this movie is when the MCU goes "dark" or takes a "dark" turn. He said while the trailers may seem ominous or have a sense of impending doom, the movies do not have that feel, and will not. He said he "Hoped people would catch on by now" - there will be no giant dark turns in the MCU where it then continues to head in that direction. The humor is in the DNA of the movies, there are no plans to change that.
So, what do you think? For one, I thought Captain America: The Winter Soldier had a dark turn. Heck, even the Incredible Hulk had a dark turn. Can they avoid any "dark turns" in Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange?
We'll have to find out if this ever holds up to be true.
