How I would do ‘MCU: Phase 4’

Standard

We’ve now had about ten years of Marvel movies and we’re pretty much locked in for another ten but despite their master plan we actually don’t know how we’re getting their.

What is ‘101 ways to end the clone saga’?

Standard

The clone saga, as has already been mentioned, was a bit of a mess. It sold so well that the highers ups wanted more; more twists, more turns, more clones.
