Matthew Berry Leaving Fantasy Football At ESPN To Focus On MCU Cameos

Bristol, CT – Matthew Berry, a fantasy football analyst and longtime ESPN employee, announced Monday that July 2022 marks his final time at the company. A true pioneer, Berry paved the way for fantasy football enthusiasts to pursue a career in the industry. Shockingly, Berry also announced his next career move is showing up in more Marvel films.

“ESPN and the fantasy community have been great to me over the years,” Berry said. “I couldn’t have been what I am today without them. But, it’s time to take my career in a new direction. I’ll be pursuing further projects surrounding my appearance as ‘S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent’ in Avengers: Endgame.”

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige took the stage following Berry’s announcement to reveal several new titles in the MCU, including “SHIELD Agent: Origins” and a Disney+ series “Mr. Stark Hand Over The Briefcase,” both to be released sometime in 2023. The series will be an 8-part limited show breaking down every syllable of Berry’s lone delivered line in Avengers: Endgame. Robert Redford will reprise his role as Alexander Pierce.

It’s still early in this shocking twist to MCU’s never-ending Phase 4, so we don’t have too many juicy rumors about where and when Berry’s “S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent” will end up, but you may just see him in some post-credit scenes until then. Stay tuned for more info!

Fantasy Gazette reached out to the Disney corporation for comment, but since they own both ESPN and Marvel Studios they basically saw this as someone transferring from accounting to HR.
