After Avengers infinity war, regular TV watchers asked…”so what next”? “Are they all going to be back”? While hardcore marvel fans knew for sure that possibly couldn’t be the end of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), others thought it may well be the end. Fast forward exactly one year later, Avengers: End game was released, a lot of emotions filled the air, hearts were broken again. However, that same question is being thrown around. Is this the end of the MCU, because surely this finale is as epic as it could get; surely no other battle could top what they’ve done already. But that’s not the case.
Infact, what the filmmakers show us on TV aren’t even half of a the crazy epic showdowns and battles that have happened in the comic book story line. So the answer to the question is No. The MCU doesn’t show any sign of slowing down or wrapping up anytime soon even though “End game” is the cornerstone of Phase 3. Details about the future of the MCU have been kept secret by the studio. However we do get a little revelation from Marvel’s president Kevin Feige every now and then. In an interview with i09 he said: “The slate that we’re building over the next five years [is] not apples to apples,” “It is two very distinct things and I hope they’ll feel very distinct.”
Another thing to bear in mind is that other Marvel movies have their release dates scheduled already for instance “Spiderman: Far from home” is set to premiere sometime in July 2019. This film is believed to be the gateway into the Phase 4 of the MCU, although details about it’s timeline and where exactly it fits into the whole MCU timeline have been kept a secret.
Phase 4 is also going to introduce us to new superheroes. The first is Shangchi, who is going to be the first Asian lead role in a Marvel film. Actress Angelina Jolie has also been added to the cast of the “The Eternals” to play the lead role of Cersi. Alongside her will be the talented Kumal Nainjaini. The film which is rumoured to be Marvels next big thing after the avengers.
Benedict Cumberbatch returns to the role of Stephen Strange. Dr. Strange is back in action, after setting things in motion in Infinity War. Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, and Chiwetel Ejiofor will reprise their MCU roles. Scott Derrickson, who directed the first Doctor Strange, will also return. Nightmare — an evil ruler of the “Dream Dimension” — is set to be the main antagonist.
Filming is planned to begin in early 2020, with a tentative release date of May 2021.
Plans for a Black Panther sequel were revealed a month after the movie’s premiere. Ryan Coogler will return to the director’s role and it’s confirmed that Chadwick Boseman and Letitia Wright will reprise their roles as T’Challa and Shuri respectively.
There’s little information about the plot of the film however rumours suggest that Eric Killmonger could return.
If all things go well, filming is scheduled to begin in late 2019 to early 2020, which means the film won’t be released till 2021.
