Marvel has been pumping out superhero films for years, and after multiple years of success, have become the massively powerful company we’ve all grown to love.
After the successful release of ‘Avengers Endgame’ and ‘Spiderman Far From Home’, things have been a little quiet from the Disney-owned studio.
Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, has taken to San Diego Comic-Con to announce the future plans in store, which are sure to have us talking for months.
Initially, only the timeline was released with mysterious unnamed titles attached, teasing 3 films/television series in 2020 and 7 in 2021, so this is a welcome surprise.
Towards the end of the panel, a large list of films and shows were announced, and boy do they have us excited. Here they are:
‘Eternals’ will undoubtedly expand upon the Marvel lore like never before, and will be featuring Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Lauren Ridloff, Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek, Lia McHugh, and Don Lee. The film is set to hit theatres on November 6, 2020.
‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’
‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’ will be introducing a new mainstay hero for Phase Four, and will be featuring Simu Liu, Awkwafina and Tony Leung. The film is set to hit theatres on February 12, 2021.
‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’
‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ will bring us the sequel to one of our favourite Marvel movies to date, and will be featuring Benedict Cumberbatch and Elizabeth Olsen. The film is set to hit theatres on May 7, 2021.
‘Thor: Love and Thunder’
‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ is definitely something we cannot possibly wait for any longer, and will be featuring Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, and Natalie Portman. The film is set to hit theatres on November 5, 2021.
‘Black Widow’ will finally give us the long-awaited back story for one of our favourite Avengers, and will be featuring Scarlett Johansson, David Harbour, Florence Pugh, O-T Fagbenie and Rachel Weisz. The film is set to hit theatres on May 1, 2020.
‘Blade’ is returning with the absolutely perfect casting of Mahershala Ali. Not much else is known about this film and there is no associated release date. We imagine it would fit around 2021 on the phase four timeline.
