Black widow - Marvel Cinematic Universe

After Captain America: Civil War, the plot sees Natasha Romanoff (Johansson) returning to the former Soviet Bloc to deal with some unresolved issues and face her spy “family” – although it is still possible the film may all be a phantasm of sorts as Nat’s soul rests on Vormir. What we do know is that, according to

Shortland, the film will serve as a passing of the baton from Natasha to Yelena, and a “last hurrah” for Johansson, who will leave the MCU after the project.

On March 17, Disney announced it was postponing the release of the film due to the coronavirus outbreak and subsequently announced on April 3 a new release date of November 6, 2020. On September 23, Disney again moved the film to May 7, 2021 – a full year from its original release date – before pushing it back again to July 9, 2021. It will be available on Disney+ via Premier Access on the day it is released in theaters Black widow Marvel Cinematic Universe.



Shang-Chi was the son of legendary literary villain Fu Manchu. Learning the truth about his dad’s business, he used his martial arts prowess against his father and any other Marvel baddie ready to battle with his mighty hands. As Disney began to consider shutting down active productions, Cretton took a Coronavirus test and self-isolated himself on March 12 of 2020.

While the second-unit shooting continued. His test results came back negative, but production completely shut down the next day. In early April, the film’s release was pushed back to May 2021 to accommodate the halted production and the other changes to the release schedule. In September, the film shifted again from the May 7, 2021 release date to July 9, 2021; then, when Black Widow took that release date, Shang-Chi – Marvel Cinematic Universe was pushed again to September 3, 2021.

ETERNALS – Marvel Cinematic Universe

ETERNALS - Marvel Cinematic Universe

In April of 2018, Marvel Studios president’s new Marvel Cinematic Universe Kevin Feige revealed a film based on the Eternals comic book and the concept was in development. Eternals is based on a comics series created by Jack Kirby and revolves around a group of superpowered and nearly immortal beings. Marvel enlisted acclaimed The Rider director Chloe Zhao to take the helm. Filming began in Fall 2019 and was completed in 2020.

The film was set for release in November 2020 but was delayed due to coronavirus concerns, first to February 2021 then to November 2021, swapping places in the MCU order with Shang-Chi. The film will also feature Marvel’s first real attempt at including gay characters, as Henry’s Phastos will reportedly be married to a man and raising a child alongside him. After initially losing its November 2020 slot to Black Widow, Disney moved the film to November 5, 2021, during a restructuring of its release calendar in September of 2020. Audiences got their first look at the film in a just-released Phase 4 trailer.

The film will center on an Eternal named Sersi (Gemma Chan) with the powers of flight, strength, immortality, and molecular manipulation. Confirmed cast members include Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Salma Hayek, Gemma Chan, Brian Tyree Henry, Kit Harington, and Don Lee among others — for this introduction of the titular immortal alien race that has been living in disguise on Earth for thousands of years. Spurred on by a tragedy following Avengers: Endgame, they reunite to protect humanity from their evil counterparts, the Deviants.

Spider-Man: No Way Home – Marvel Cinematic Universe

Spider-Man: No Way Home - Marvel Cinematic Universe

Sony Pictures and the Walt Disney Studios agreed to produce a third film with Tom Holland as Spider-Man. While the fine details of the studios’ new agreement are not known beyond Disney reportedly increasing its share of the profits to 25%-we do know Spidey will appear in one additional MCU outside of his third solo film. After the pentameric, all that changed.

Holland shot Uncharted first, in the Summer and Fall of 2020, before moving directly into shooting Spider-Man 3. In April 2020, we learned the third Spider-Man movie was saddled with a new November 2021 release date, which was then pushed further to December after COVID delayed filming.

Though Strange is said to fill the mentor role, his presence has fueled speculation the film may see the other Spider-Men from the previous film series. Also fueling that speculation: the addition of Jamie Foxx, who once again plays Electro – although it remains to be seen if this will be the villain from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 or an MCU equivalent. And while rumors surfaced in December 2020 indicating Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire are in talks to appear, Alfred Molina was spotted on set reprising his role as Doctor Octopus from Spider-Man 2.

Spider-Man: No Way Home. Although we’re thrilled to have a title, it only further clouds the mystery of casting villains and actors from Spider-Man movie history, as do Holland’s recent comments about Peter making his way back to high school. In April, Molina confirmed his part in the film, saying Doc Ock’s story picks up from his final moments in Spider-Man 2.

Hawkeye – Marvel Cinematic Universe

Hawkeye - Marvel Cinematic Universe

Jeremy Renner’s Clint Barton is the last of the original six from The Avengers to get his own Marvel Studios project, and as Black Widow, this one is also about handing over the baton to the next generation – while exploring previously unexplored parts of their lives. 

In late November 2020 with the directing team of Amber Finlayson and Katie Ellwood (who go by the directing name Bert and Bertie) and Comrade Detective’s Rhys Thomas, set to helm several episodes. Hailee Steinfeld – long rumored for the part of Kate Bishop – soon appeared in photos and videos from the set. Vera Farmiga was also reportedly joining the show as Kate’s mother Eleanor while Alaqua Cox will play deaf assassin Echo.

Jonathan Igla (Mad Men) is the creator, with Rhys Thomas (John Mulaney & the Sack Lunch Bunch) and Bert & Bertie (Troop Zero) set as directors. Filming ran from December 2020 – April 2021.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness – Marvel Cinematic Universe

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness - Marvel Cinematic Universe

Scott Derrickson finally signed on to return in December of 2018, but his involvement with the film ended in early January of 2019 when he departed the production, citing “creative differences.” Benedict Cumberbatch returns as the Sorcerer Supreme with Elizabeth Olsen joining him as the Scarlet Witch in what Derrickson originally called “the first scary MCU movie” though some believe Marvel’s unease with that mission statement led to his departure. Raimi’s bona fides as a horror director suggest the film may still have some scares, but the script is being reworked by Loki head writer Michael Waldron and may yet conform to the Marvel house style. As teased at the end of the first film

Also returning Wong as Strange’s friend Wong and Rachel McAdams as Strange’s love interest Christine Palmer. Joining them is Xochitl Gomez as America Chavez — she would be the second LGBTQ superhero in the MCU — which further lends credence to the fact that Marvel Studios is building up Young Avengers. The film, which is still a ways from beginning production, is now set for release in March 2022 following multiple changes to Marvel Studios’ schedule.

Thor: Love and Thunder – Marvel Cinematic Universe

Thor: Love and Thunder - Marvel Cinematic Universe

Marvel signed Thor: Ragnarok filmmaker Taika Waititi to return to write and direct Thor 4 in July 2019, but at Comic-Con a few weeks later Marvel broke the big news: the film will feature the return of Natalie Portman as Jane Foster, who becomes the MCU’s first female Thor. Chris Hemsworth will return as the wandering Odinson, but not as Thor. In a surprise move, Marvel revealed Natalie Portman is returning to the series as the new Mighty Thor, a twist pulled from an excellent Thor comic book series by Jason Aaron.

The other storyline revolves around New Asgard’s new king Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) looking for her queen, which makes her the third LGBTQ superhero and the first technically, though references to her bisexuality were unfortunately erased from Ragnarok.

Christian Bale emerged as a potential new member of the cast – Marvel subsequently confirmed he will play the main antagonist, Gorr the God Butcher. In February that year, Someone Great filmmaker Jennifer Kaytin Robinson reportedly joined Waititi as a co-writer. That March, Vin Diesel revealed the Guardians of the Galaxy will make some sort of appearance – which we’ve always assumed would be the case – but the addition of Chris Pratt to the cast, announced in November of 2020, confirmed the Guardians will be along for the ride.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever – Marvel Cinematic Universe

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever - Marvel Cinematic Universe

The tragic death of Chadwick Boseman on August 28, 2020, plans for Black Panther II press on. It seems the sudden and awful casting change only delayed production by a couple of months. Filming is reportedly set to begin in July of 2021 with Shuri (Letitia Wright) taking on a larger role and actor Tenoch Huerta in talks to play the primary antagonist, but Wright’s anti-vax comments have made the decision more complicated for Marvel. Martin Freeman, who played CIA agent Everett Ross, has revealed he will be back.

Narcos: Mexico star Tenoch Huerta will reportedly play one of the villains. Ryan Coogler returns as writer and director on Black Panther: Wakanda ForeverIn December of 2020, Marvel changed the release date to the July 2022 slot and Feige re-affirmed the studio will not recast T’Challa in honor of Boseman. In May 2021, the studio revealed the title for the sequel will be Black Panther: Wakanda Forever(Marvel Cinematic Universe).

The Marvels – Marvel Cinematic Universe

The Marvels - Marvel Cinematic Universe

Previous year January 2020 Marvel reportedly hired WandaVision staff writer Megan McDonnell to begin drafting a sequel to Captain Marvel. Brie Larson will return as Carol, and considering how vital they were to the first film, you can probably expect Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn to return as Fury and Talos.

Monica has also held the Captain Marvel moniker in the comics so naturally all together, they are “The Marvels (Marvel Cinematic Universe) ”.Also, with Black Panther II’s move to July 8, 2022, the film has moved out of its long-held release window of July in that year. It is now slated for release on November 11, 2022. In the new Phase 4 video trailer, it was revealed the film will now be called The Marvels.

SheHulk – Marvel Cinematic Universe

She-Hulk - Marvel Cinematic Universe

Continuing the MCU trend of second-generation heroes, Mark Ruffalo’s Bruce Banner/ Hulk invites his cousin Jennifer Walters, played by Tatiana Maslany, into the scheme of things. In the comics, Walters is a lawyer who specialises in superhero-oriented legal cases and ends up as She-Hulk after she gets a blood transfusion from also became one of the quickest to come together with head writer Jessica Gao – a Rick & Morty veteran whose appointment suggests the series will be more comedic – director Cat Coiro, and star Tatiana Maslany, who joined the series in September of 2020, signing on.

At the December 2020 Disney Investor Day Presentation, Feige confirmed Maslany as the star and announced Mark Ruffalo and Tim Roth will appear as The Hulk and The Abomination. Ruffalo and Maslany will be joined by the returning Tim Roth as Emil Blonsky/ Abomination (from The Incredible Hulk), in addition to Ginger Gonzaga as Walters’ unnamed best friend and Renée Elise Goldsberry as a character called Amelia. In January of 2021, Ginger Gonzaga reportedly joined the cast as Jennifer’s unnamed best friend. Considering that role is typically filled by Marvel Comics character Patsy Walker – a.k.a. Hellcat – it is possible She-Hulk (Marvel Cinematic Universe) will offer the first concrete change from the old Marvel Television programs.

Moon Knight – Marvel Cinematic Universe

Moon Knight - Marvel Cinematic Universe

Many rumors during Marvel’s alliance with Netflix, Disney+ will serve as home to a Moon Knight series. As Feige explained at D23 in 2019, it is an “action adventure series” featuring the Marvel character Mark Specter. “He was left for dead and he may or may not be infused with powers from the moon god.Ethan Hawke as the main villain, while Ramy star May Calamawy she is of Egyptian and Palestinian heritage is said to have a “key role”. Feige has said that Moon Knight will be a bit like Marvel’s Indiana Jones, infused with Egyptology and mental illness.

The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special – Marvel Cinematic Universe

The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special - Marvel Cinematic Universe

A first for Marvel Studios, the special will be filmed concurrently with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and stream the holiday season prior to the feature’s release. James Gunn will write and direct the special, which we imagine will nod as much to The Star Wars Holiday Special as it will the Guardians’ own situation. We hope this means someone will do a big song-and-dance.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania – Marvel Cinematic Universe

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania - Marvel Cinematic Universe

Scott still needs to put his life back together – granted, he does that constantly. This time, though, he is an acknowledged hero, which should help some. Although, one imagines his relationship with Cassie (Kathryn Newton, taking over from Emma Fuhrmann) will be fairly different.

The third Ant-Man movie that will seemingly involve a lot more of the Quantum Realm that we briefly entered in 2018’s Ant-Man and the Wasp. Of course, Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang/Ant-Man and Evangeline Lilly’s Hope van Dyne/ Wasp will return, as will their original older counterparts, Hope’s parents Hank Pym and Janet van Dyne, played respectively by Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer. also, Hope (Evangeline Lilly), Hank (Michael Douglas), and Janet (Michelle Pfeiffer) will need to adjust to life after returning from the Snap. But their attempt at finding a new normal will be upset by the arrival of Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors), a time traveler with a fantastic connection to the Marvel universe.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 – Marvel Cinematic Universe

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 - Marvel Cinematic Universe

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is Disney on the third Guardians movie. But with Gunn taking up The Suicide Squad at DC between those developments, that has resulted in the six-year gap between the instalments. The character very nearly appeared in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Infinity War.

But fell away as both movies were stuffed into the air ducts with characters. It is possible he will finally do something in the MCU besides sit in an egg. Also, before Gunn’s temporary departure, he referred to the film as a conclusion to the story he began telling in the first installment, so it is possible the film will have an Endgame-like resolution. Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, and Sean Gunn are expected to return. (We will see many of them in Thor: Love and Thunder as well, and The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special.)

Secret Invasion – Marvel Cinematic Universe

Secret Invasion - Marvel Cinematic Universe

Olivia Colman and Emilia Clarke are part of a fascinating cast for this “crossover event” led by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Talos (Ben Mendelsohn) will deal with a sect of ill-intentioned Skrulls hiding on Earth and infiltrating “every level of life on Earth.”

Word of the series first broke in September as an unspecified Nick Fury project, but calling it Secret Invasion leads to something very pointed as Feige referred to the original Secret Invasion comic book event series as “the biggest” since Civil War. Kyle Bradstreet will serve as the program’s executive producer. Secret Invasion reveals that a faction of shape-shifting Skrulls has been infiltrating Earth for years. One Night in Miami… star Kingsley Ben-Adir is playing the Skrull leader.

Ironheart – Marvel Cinematic Universe

Ironheart - Marvel Cinematic Universe

Based on the character recently introduced into Marvel comics by Brian Michael Bendis and artist Mike Deodato (with a subsequent redesign by Eve Ewing and Kevin Libranda), Riri Williams (Dominque Thorne) is a robotics genius who builds a suit of armor more advanced than anything Tony Stark devised in his lifetime. Both Ironheart and Secret Invasion will tie back into an upcoming MCU feature film. In April of 2021, word broke indicating poet and Snowpiercer veteran Chinaka Hodge will serve as the program’s showrunner and executive producer.

Armor Wars – Marvel Cinematic Universe

Armor Wars - Marvel Cinematic Universe

Don Cheadle’s James Rhodes/ War Machine leads the other post-Iron Man series as he must save the day after Tony Stark’s tech falls into the wrong hands, something Stark feared all along. Rhodes must do whatever it takes to get it back or destroy it for good. Armor Wars will also explore the fallout of Stark’s death. Filming expected to begin in 2021.

Deadpool 3 – Marvel Cinematic Universe

Deadpool 3 - Marvel Cinematic Universe

Bob’s Burgers writers Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin and Wendy Molyneux are scripting the third film in the funny X-related franchise, any number of things could happen. But we think the film will serve as the introduction of the X-Men in a roundabout way.Ryan Reynolds’ Wade Wilson/ Deadpool is the only mutant to cross over from the now-defunct X-Men universe, with Marvel turning the rest to dust after Disney’s acquisition of Fox. And possibly for good reason while X-Men died a slow death at the box office, the Deadpool series turned out to be the most successful entries of the lot.

Fantastic Four – Marvel Cinematic Universe

Fantastic Four - Marvel Cinematic Universe

Marvel’s first family is joining the MCU, again thanks to Disney’s acquisition of its previous rights owner Fox.At 2019 Comic-Con, Feige merely mentioned he “ran out of time” to discuss the Fantastic Four or mutants. While both concepts will eventually make their way into the MCU.

We expected that integrating Marvel’s first family will be the priority and maybe even the whole point of Phase 5.Tom Holland’s Spider-Man trilogy, including Homecoming, Far From Home, and No Way Home Marvel announced Spider-Man: Far From Home director Jon Watts will helm the project. For the longest time, we kept the film at the last possible release date, but with its title car teased in a May 2021 sizzle reel, we now think it will come together before Blade.

Blade – Marvel Cinematic Universe

Blade - Marvel Cinematic Universe

Mahershala Ali will step into the shoes of Wesley Snipes/ Blade for this reboot that brings the character into the MCU.The daywalker will appear in his own film sometime during Phase 5, but specific details about the project will likely come to light soon.As the film’s title card was not featured in the May 2021 preview video, we’re going to assume the project is now slated for one of the later 2023 release slots.

CAPTAIN AMERICA 4 – Marvel Cinematic Universe

CAPTAIN AMERICA 4 - Marvel Cinematic Universe

Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson/ Captain America will no doubt be the focus of the fourth Captain America film, having taken up the mantle in The Falcon and the Winter will continue with Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) as Cap and how he fulfills the role in a world still recovering from the Blip.

Perhaps it will also address his connection to the Avengers (or what’s left of them). But as the film is presumably the furthest from release, a lot of other stories will occur before it hits theaters. To put it in context, all of the Disney+ series announced to date – and all of the characters introduced within them – will have aired. Add Blade and the Fantastic Four to the roster, and you have a substantially different set of heroes from the ones active during Sam’s previous big-screen adventure. The shows’ villains might factor as well, including Emily VanCamp’s Sharon Carter/ Power Broker who’s now back at her old US government job, and Wyatt Russell’s morally dubious John Walker/ US Agent who works for Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ mysterious Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine.



Tom Hiddleston’s Loki keeps dying but Marvel keeps finding a way to bring him back. This time around, it’s the Loki we briefly met in Endgame, when Iron Man and Captain America traveled back in time to the events of 2012’s The Avengers. MCU going forward, although Disney+’s Super Bowl ad seemed to suggest Loki will once again find himself in a prison cell. Owen Wilson, Sophia Di Martino, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw join Hiddleston in whatever hijinks his well-known alter ego gets into. As with the other Marvel Disney+ productions, filming was interrupted but there appears to be no great delay in release. In December of 2020

That version of Loki escaped with the Tesseract and his manipulation of timelines has run him afoul of the Time Variance Authority, as the Loki trailers reveal. And because this is an earlier Loki, it means he hasn’t had any of that character growth from Thor: The Dark World, let alone Thor: Ragnarok.



what if is the most popular Marvel classics comic title, what if… animation will see each episode addressing a different outcome to key MCU events – probably through the lens of those pesky divergent timelines. As an example, the first episode will ask “What if Peggy Carter took the supersoldier serum instead of Steve Rogers?” comic book and the viewer’s guide into the strangest of the Marvel series for the streaming service. As this is an animated series that experienced few, if any, delays because of COVID-19, it is still on track for its 2021 release.

Ms. Marvel SERIES

Ms. Marvel SERIES

After Shang-Chi, the second Asian superhero from Marvel Studios (Marvel Cinematic Universe) will be Kamala Khan (Iman Vellani), a Muslim teenager of Pakistani origin who is a huge superhero fan — she even writes fan fiction -who ends up gaining powers of her own.” a commitment to what Ms. Marvel fans have wanted for ages. At the same time, Bisha K. Ali was revealed as the series showrunner. In September of 2020, Bad Boys for Life filmmakers Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, documentary short Oscar winner Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy

 Cast, which includes Vellani, Rish Shah, Mohan Kapur, Zenobia Shroff, Yasmeen Fletcher, Saagar Shaikh, and Matt Lintz.



The December 2020 Investor Day presentation, this series will be a collection of animated shorts featuring Baby Groot. It is unclear if the other Guardians will appear in some capacity, but “several new and unusual characters” will be introduced.

Wakanda Series Untitled

Wakanda Series Untitled

 Black Panther director Ryan Coogler will develop and produce a series set in Wakanda. It is unclear if it will tell more tales of the country’s past or expand on ideas and characters seen in the film and its sequel. Beyond its setting, nothing else is known.

Marvel Echo Series Untitled

Marvel Echo Series

Hawkeye‘s Echo/ Maya Lopez, played by Alaqua Cox, will be the first Native American superhero and the second deaf superhero in the MCU. Like Taskmaster from Black Widow, she is completely adept at copying her opponents’ movements thanks to photographic reflexes. I would imagine that some Hawkeye cast members will also feature.
