Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, unveiled the Phase 4 slate of the Marvel Cinematic Universe at Comic-Con.
He hit the stage at Marvel’s panel in Hall H, announcing a tantalizing suite of new superhero movies, set for release over the next two years.
Here is Marvel’s Phase 4 schedule:
May 1, 2020: Black Widow
Fall, 2020: The Falcon and Winter Soldier
Nov. 6, 2020: The Eternals movie
Feb. 12, 2021: Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings
Spring, 2021: WandaVision Disney Plus series
May 7, 2021: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
Spring, 2021: Loki Disney Plus series
Summer, 2021: What If…?
Fall, 2021: Hawkeye
Nov. 5, 2021: Thor 4: Love and Thunder
The Eternals is set for November 6, 2020, which is said to be entirely new and different for the MCU. Angelina Jolie is cast as Thena, Salma Hayek as Ajak, Richard Madden as Ikaris, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, and others.
“I’m so excited to be here,” Jolie told the crowd.
She said she’s going to work “10 times harder” than she has on any of her other action roles because she knows what it means to “be part of the MCU” and “part of this family.”
Jolie, who is playing the character Thena, was joined by her The Eternals castmates including Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Salma Hayek and Brian Tyree Henry, as well as director Chloé Zhao.
“I just really, really wanted to make a Marvel movie for so long,” Zhao said.
Eternals is shooting in London, and the film set to hit theaters on November 6th, 2020.
Thor 4 officially has a title now, called Thor: Love and Thunder, with Natalie Portman, confirmed for the role of female Thor.
Portman, who played Jane in the first two Thor films, will be remerging as the female Thor. She ran out on stage to thunderous applause and accepted the hammer from a kneeling Taika Waititi.
Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson, who alluded to her character identifying as LGBTQ, will also be returning for the Waititi-directed Thor: Love and Thunder, which is set for release on Nov. 2, 2021.
A big surprise at the event was the announcement that a new version of Blade, starring Mahershala Ali, is also on the way.
At this point, we have little info other than Ali’s casting. Most likely Blade will be a cinematic release but it could appear on Disney Plus.
