The Marvel Studios’ panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday night settled fans’ fears about how the company would follow up the first three phases.
At the panel, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige announced that the “Infinity Saga” is now complete with the release of Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far from Home. This now means we have entered what is arguably the most ambitious and most diverse era of the MCU: Phase Four.
Here’s a list of all the Marvel Phase Four movies and TV shows and their planned release dates:
- Black Widow – May 1, 2020
- The Falcon and the Winter Soldier (Disney+) – Fall 2020
- The Eternals – November 6, 2020
- Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings – February 12, 2021
- WandaVision (Disney+) – Spring 2021
- Loki (Disney+) – Spring 2021
- Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness – May 7, 2021
- What If…? (Disney+) – Summer 2021
- Hawkeye (Disney+) – Fall 2021
- Thor: Love and Thunder – November 5, 2021
This means that Phase Four will only last two years, compared to the four years it took Phase Three to be complete. It also means that confirmed sequels such as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Black Panther 2, and Captain Marvel 2 are most likely still a ways off and won’t be a part of Phase Four.
Also announced at the panel was a Blade reboot, with Mahershala Ali playing the titular character. The character was most famously brought to the screen by Wesley Snipes, who played him in the 1998 film Blade and the two sequels in 2002 and 2004. No other details have been announced for the project.
