Sunday was a big day for Marvel fans, as Kevin Feige president of Marvel Studios announced “Phase 4” of the Marvel Cinematic Universe at Comic-Con. Fans were in a frenzy as title after title was announced.
Angelina Jolie is headlining the new movie The Eternals, which was apart of the announcement of five new title releases. The Eternals is set to drop in 2020 along with Black Widow, while Shang-Chi, Doctor Strange, and a new Thor movie are set to drop in 2021. Along with the new movie releases, Feige to a roar of cheers from the crowd announced the new titles for TV Series, which included The Falcon and the Winter Soldier in 2020, WandaVision, Loki, What If, and Hawkeye all to drop in 2021. Those TV Series will feature on Disney’s new streaming service, “Disney +”.
While those are the projects already in production, the biggest hype came in the final announcements about the projects in the works. Feige teased the audience with some spoilers of what else Marvel fans can expect as he closed out the presentation;
“We didn’t even mention that we’re making
Black Panther 2,
we didn’t mention the fact that Guardians
of the Galaxy 3 is coming, we didn’t
have time to talk about Captain
Marvel 2, I didn’t even have time to
talk about The Fantastic
Four. And now there’s no time left
to talk about mutants
The crowd was literally beside themselves cheering and roaring like their team just won a world championship, or their coveted presidential candidate just won the presidency. BUT WAIT …there’s more.
Perhaps the biggest announcement that nobody was expecting was that two time Academy Award winner Mahershala Ali will be the new Wesley Snipes in a remake of the Blade movies. This seems like a perfect fit, and personally we cannot wait to see a trailer for the new look Blade.
Overall, Marvel Studios brought down the house at Comic-Con, and Phase 4 on the surface looks like it will not disappoint. Let us know your thoughts on the announcement, and what releases you are most excited about.
