SALT LAKE CITY — What’s next for Marvel after “Avengers: Endgame” drops at the end of the month? Heading back in time, according to CNBC.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told ScreenRant in a new interview that there is great "potential" for future stories taking place before the “Avengers" timeline.

Feige said there are some exciting stories to tell in the past.

  • “I mean, I think one of the things that’s fun to us about the timeline of this film ('Captain Marvel') and the potential of future stories with these characters is there’s a great past,” Feige told ScreenRant.

So does that mean Marvel will have solo-prequel stories like a Nick Fury origin film?

  • “I think the fun part about seeing this portion of the MCU is that gap. … The potential is there,” he said.

Marvel has experimented with older films before. For example, “Captain America: The First Avenger” took place in the World War II era, according to Box Office Mojo. The film earned $370 million with a $140 million budget.

Meanwhile, the recent “Captain Marvel” was set in 1995 and has grossed $1 billion worldwide.

Expert voice: Daniel Richtman, a media influencer, told CNBC that Marvel might take a dip in popularity after “Endgame.”

  • “Honestly, I believe (Marvel) will lose just a little bit of steam post ‘Endgame.’ It’s only natural after the big set-up of ‘Endgame’ as the big finale. Everything that will come after that will fail in comparison,” he said.
