Saturday night at Comic-Con in San Diego featured our first look at what’s coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and studio head Kevin Feige certainly didn’t hold back.
Marvel’s Saturday night panel was packed with excitement, with many hoping a roadmap for what’s ahead for the MCU. Feige started the panel by declaring the “Infinity Saga” complete. He then shared what’s next for Phase 4 of the MCU.
He also dropped a fun milestone for fans of Avengers: Endgame: It will officially pass Avatar as the highest-grossing movie of all-time. Feige then got down to business, dropping new details about the next teamup superhero Marvel movie: Eternals.
We already knew Angelina Jolie was rumored to be in the movie along with Selma Hayek, but Saturday’s panel also introduced Richard Madden of Game of Thrones, Kumail Nanjiani, Lauren Ridloff and others from the cast.
Fiege also announced that The Falcon And The Winter Soldier will officially come to Disney+ in the fall of 2020 and star Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan and everyone you’d expect from a Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes teamup.
Shang-Chi was up next, with the casting leaning heavily on Crazy Rich Asians, as star Simu Liu and Awkwafina were both announced in the cast on Saturday.
There were a number of other Disney+ announcements, including a Hawkeye (complete with Matt Fraction-era logo), a Loki series and a Wandavision series.
Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda will also appear in one of the bigger MCU Phase 4 pictures announced, a Dr. Strange sequel.
The Dr. Strange sequel was denoted as the first Marvel horror movie, which is certainly intriguing. And there was also Marvel’s first animated series.
Another big sequel: Thor: Love And Thunder, complete with a hilariously He-Man-looking logo.
The Black Widow standalone movie is finally happening as well, despite, well, you know.
Blade will also happen, too.
