SDCC 2019 has less of hype after ‘Avengers: Endgame’, but true diehard fans of Marvel Studios will still think this as good news. Phase 3 ended with ‘Spider-man: Far From Home’ preparing Peter Parker for more in store. Its End Credits also hinted that space-life is getting even more integrated with Earth.
Marvel reveals movies confirmed for the next two years with new shows slated to be streamed exclusively on their streaming service, Disney+. If you still think Marvel is still great and will be as amazing in the future, be excited of the new line-up (and start googling how to subscribe to Disney+).
On the other hand, you will be interested to know how you can enjoy Disney movies as Netflix subscribers as well!
Kevin Feige didn’t reveal the movies in the order they were released, but here, we order the movies in their release date.
1. Black Widow (May 1, 2020)
Phase 4 is kicked off with ‘Black Widow’ which stars Scarlett Johansson. People have been asking for a standalone movie that features one of the most favorite female superheroes who first appeared in ‘Iron Man 2’. Feige showed footage of the movie which is currently in its production stage with several pictures of Johansson shooting in Norway previously leaked.
Cate Shortland directed the movie and the movie is set to tell the prequel of Natasha’s personal stories with David Harbour as Alexei aka The Red Guardian, Florence Pugh as Yelena, O-T Fagbenle as Mason and Rachel Weisz as Melina.
2. The Falcon and The Winter Soldier (Fall 2020)
Sam Wilson, The Falcon, was handed over with the proud shield of Captain America. This new show will feature Sam Wilson partnering up with Bucky Barnes, The Winter Soldier.
Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan are set to return to reprise their roles as The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. And fans will definitely remember the villain that the two are set to face off post-Endgame, Baron Zemo who was and will be portrayed by Daniel Brühl (Captain America: Civil War).
The show can only be streamed on Disney+ on Fall 2020.
3. The Eternals (November 6, 2020)
A new line of superheroes is being introduced into the universe, the kind that has reputations rivaling that of Thor’s. Feige introduced the director of the movie, Chloé Zhao, a Chinese director who is most known for her work on ‘The Rider’.
Here is the line-up of our new superheroes who will appear in the movie: Richard Madden as Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Salma Hayek as Ajak, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Ma Dong Seok as Gilgamesh and Angelina Jolie as Thena.
4. Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings (February 12, 2012)
A lot of things are made clear on this SDCC 2019 for Shang-chi with so many rumors of who will become Shang-chi, the Mandarin or who will be the villain. It has been confirmed that Simu Liu will be Shang-chi and Destin Daniel Cretton will direct the movie. Awkwafina has also been cast for an undisclosed role and Chinese actor Tony Leung will be the real Mandarin.
5. WandaVision (Spring 2021)
Paul Bettany is returning to reprise his role as Vision after his absence from ‘Avengers: Endgame’ alongside Elizabeth Olsen who will act as Scarlet Witch/Wanda and his romantic interest on screen. Monica Rambeau from ‘Captain America’ is returning as a grown-up, portrayed by Teyonah Paris.
The show will begin airing in Spring 2021, showing a post-Endgame world which will definitely answer how Vision is brought back to life.
6. Doctor Strange: In the Multiverse of Madness (May 7, 20210
Benedict Cumberbatch is returning to reprise his role as Doctor Strange in the second installment of the franchise. Scott Derickson will return as the director and to everyone’s surprise, Elizabeth Olsen will be part of the movie, showing how ‘Doctor Strange 2’ will pave a way to ‘WandaVision’.
7. Loki (Spring 2021)
After escaping with the Tesseract in his hand during the chaos of time heist, Loki was never seen again. But not for long (at least, two years seem bearable for diehard fans!), because Tom Hiddleston is returning for his own show ‘Loki’ on Disney+ back as the same god of mischief in the show.
He also teased people in answering the biggest question on his character: “Avengers: Endgame”: “Where did Loki go when he took the Space Stone?”
8. What If…? (Summer 2021)
‘What If…?’ is an animated series set to show possible alternate realities that exist in Marvel Universe. Actors and actresses who portrayed their characters are set to voice the same characters in the animation. Jeffrey Wright is also added into the lineup and will voice his character from ‘The Watcher’.
9. Hawkeye (Fall 2021)
Hawkeyes is also set to return in a Disney+ original series and has Kate Bishop added into the show. Not much of the story of the series is revealed.
10. Thor: Love and Thunder (November 5, 2021)
Thor 4 is returning and it will be titled ‘Love and Thunder’. Chris Hemsworth is back along with Taika Waititi who will direct the movie. A surprising revelation is the return of Natalie Portman as more than just Jane Foster; she will be Lady Thor, as Taika Waititi handed over the hammer in a ritualistic way.
Tessa Thompson is also returning as Valkyrie and the new Queen of Asgard.
11. Blade (unknown release date)
Mahershala Ali is pointed as the next Blade and so far, nothing more has been released. It could be a standalone movie or a Disney+ series since Feige didn’t elaborate more.
And that’s the line-up!
We’re excited for ‘The Eternals’ with the mix of various actors, Loki+ and Thor 4. It doesn’t seem that Feige lost his touch after Thanos with new superheroes appearing to replace old ones. What about you?
