Marvel has unveiled their 10-film in 2-year plan in Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and there are some biggums in the list most certainly.
And while part of us feels this is wholly overambitious, not so much in the cost (it’s Disney after all) but in the time it takes to foster complete, creative narratives, there is something to be said about cohesive strategy.
Here are the movies and series you can expect to be getting into post-Endgame in cinemas and Disney+:
Black Widow (May 1, 2020)
The Scarlett Johansson-led Black Widow movie will see the actor return as Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (Fall 2020)
The planned Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will see the return of Bucky Barnes aka Winter Soldier and the Falcon, played by Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie respectively.
Eternals (November 6, 2020)
The Eternals is set to star Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek and Angelina Jolie.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (February 12, 2021)
Boasting to be the first Asian superhero movie, Shang-Chi, the Master of Kung Fu, will be entering the MCU. And you know who has 10 rings? The Mandarin. The Real Mandarin.
WandaVision (Spring 2021)
The Disney+ WandaVision series will see the reprisal of the Scarlet Witch aka Wanda Maximoff and the Vision roles played by Elisabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany respectively. The events of the series will act as a precursor to what happens in the next Doctor Strange movie…
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (May 7, 2021)
Stephen Strange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch will return in the Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the second Doctor Strange movie. Said to knock the titular character off his recent authoritative near-omniscient run in the likes of Endgame, Strange will be taking on new challenges sure to keep him on his toes.
Loki (Spring 2021)
The Disney+ series Loki will see the return of actor Tom Hiddleston as the maker of mischief.
What If…? (Summer 2021)
The Disney+ What If…? series takes a cue from the comic book arc of the same name. Essentially the series imagines hypothetical scenarios that make compounding changes to titular Marvel Characters and their stories across the Marvel universe.
Hawkeye (Fall 2021)
The Disney+ Hawkeye Series sees the return of Jeremy Renner as the bow and arrow marksman.
Thor: Love and Thunder (November 5, 2021)
The fourth Thor film, Thor: Love and Thunder sees the return of actors Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, and Natalie Portman. Taika Waititi returns as director.
It will be interesting to see how this plays out. But what do you think of this list? Strong start for phase 4? Let’s hear it in the comment section.
