Nov 2020 Eternals

May 2021 Doc Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

Thor:  Love and Thunder 2021 - Portman back in s surprising role

Did not see a Black Widow release date - maybe May of 2020 but announcements are still being made.

 

Seems like the Disney streaming shows are the bigger announcement

I am surprised not to see a Black Panther 2 on the schedule yet.  I know it is coming but I did not expect it so far in the future (assume g it comes after these).

I would say the same thing about spriderman.  Needs to air in by 2021

But I bet they are holding back an announcement for the closing - nothing here to get too exctied about

It seemed strange to go 18 months with out an MCU movie but now I see your guess of Black Widow is official for May 1st of 2020.

There has been a slot for a May release and that is already filming so seems logical

Mentions Panther 2, Captian Marvel 2, Guardians 3 and fantastic four while closing the conference

All those are bigger than the actual announcements

Did they say how big phase 4 would be in terms of numbers of movies?  I was wondering if those movies you just listed maybe part of phase 5?

Some big reveals for characters involved in certain movies like Thor 4 and Dr Strange 2. Also MCU reboots of Blade and F4 are big news.

But they definitely focused on the 5 new marvel tv shows on Disney+, not just Loki and Falcon+Winter Soldier. But also WandaVision, Hawkeye, and “What If’s.”

Nothing super earth shattering but will put in tags:

The “real” Mandarin will be in Shang Chi. Wanda/scarlet witch will be in Dr Strange 2 and supposedly her tv show will lead directly into the movie. Biggest reveal was Natalie Portman back for Thor 4 and she took the stage carrying Mjolinor and introduced as the lady Thor like in the comics.

No black panther or Spider-Man being announced is extremely weird.

I do not think they specified.  I think they threw out Guardians 3, CM 2, BP2 and FF to let people know they are on the radar but none of them seem pending.

It's interesting that after seriously teasing the multiverse in Spiderman that it turned out to be a hoax and yet the title of Dr Strange 2 (Multiverse of Madness) seems to indicate it may be back on the table again.

The multiverse seems to be the best way to include the Xmen who were announced today to now be a part of the MCU going forward (with I assume a brand new cast again).

One of the quotes from last night’s reveal from Feige I believe was “Just because Quentin Beck lies about the multiverse doesn’t mean it isn’t real.”

Think they are easing people into it. Mentioned it in Spider-Man, now we’ll see it for real in Dr Strange 2.

They are supposedly still Phase 4 just no confirmed release dates past 2021. There are 3 movies each for 2020 & 2021. Part of that was because of the firing of Gunn and rehiring pushing Guardians 3 way back. Gunn has already committed to Suicide Squad 2 so he has to finish that first.

 

The release date thing is also a Disney issue as they have slated a new Star Wars and the new Avatar movie for 2022 so they are probably scaling back Marvel that year to not compete and crowd the box office. This is one of the minor problems with having all these properties owned by the same company. Edit: this partly why there is nothing Marvel between now and next May, Rise of Skywalker comes out this December

Some good points in there.

But hard to imagine their big summer release is Black Widow.   A movie that probably wouldn't be on my top 5 of things I wanted to see from Marvel - maybe not top 10.

I might have been been more interested it in but I have a bad feeling that it is going to seem like an ultra kiddie version of Red Sparrow. 

 I am sure I will still be there opening night though as I always am :)

A little early for that. The roadmap of the MCU circa 2012-13 looked different than what was eventually released. There could be some temperature-taking going on now, while it's financially safe to do so. Throwing out ideas at a con (even a huge one) is a lot quicker and cheaper than filming a superhero-genre picture.

Counterpoint, though: If these Phase 4 films go on largely as announced and average, say, $400 million a pop, it will feel like the franchise has gotten buried. Even though almost any other film would be ecstatic to reach that figure.

For the group that was announced, it does clearly look like that will be a run of movies on the lower end of the world wide revenue take for the MCU franchise but they have two things for them.

1) no one expected Guardians, Black Panther or Captain Marvel to be the hits they were when they were first announced so they may have some hopes that they have another sleeper or two in this unheralded group.

2) if they all come in as the lowest 4 revenues in the MCU, they have some likely massive sequels coming right behind them in Black Panther 2 and CM2 that can help reinvigorate the franchise.

 

This assumes we won't see 4 straight Thor Dark World quality level movies.  That might be hard to bounce back from.  They have to keep at least an average quality in this group upcoming even if people don't watch in the theaters as much as the rest of the MCU.

Lady Thor is going to be good. I'd imagine the Guardians will be in Thor 4 unless Thor is not in it. Thor 4 could be Lady Thor 1. Who knows at this point?

No way. That was always an interesting Jane Foster arc that people wondered if it would ever come up...in fact that was part of why seeing the crap storylines she got was so disappointing. Natalie Portman directed by Taika Waititi can crush this.

Do you think they’d have petite Natalie Portman play Lady Thor or just Jane Foster and have someone else wield the hammer?  Of course, they could use CGI for when she’s Thor.

Chris Hemsworth is staring in Thor 4 along with Portman and Tessa Thompson.  They were all on stage together during the announcement.

Marvel, like their trailers, are throwing a curve ball. Hemsworth is with the Guardians and Portman is on Earth. Book it!

Does anyone have any guesses on how they are going to handle the Eternals?  I don't know much about them outside of them being ancient beings that have protected earth through out the years, but I don't quite understand how they will explain them being absent while Thanos was dusting every one.

Well they clearly set up that Thor was with the Guardians at the end of Endgame but the timing seems off since Guardians 3 is coming after Thor 4.

Ok, I'm open minded but wanted Valkyrie to play a bigger role than this sounds like they'd do. Could be wrong of course, if Tessa is involved I'm good with it.

On a positive note, didn't they just select a director for Thor and the release date is 2.25 years away?  That means 2022 could be a big year - but that's 3 years for Spiderman & CM follow ups.  Guardians and BP are 4 or more years apart.

Not really interested in any of that except the next Spiderman, when F4 comes in and X-Men. And of course how they fit Deadpool into all of this. I'll go to whatever my son wants to see though now that he's into it.

Newsarama speculating:

2022

BP, GOTG, Blade

2023

CM, FF, Spidey

4 years for Spidey is 2 years too long

Marvel has to figure out the pacing.

4 years for spidey and you may as well make him a junior in college. That’s silly.

I'm kind of ok with it. I'd imagine Spiderman will be doing cameos in other movies to keep his face out there. We don't want Spiderman fatigue again.

Besides we need a more mature Spidey to deal with the heavy #### that's soon to come. Especially if we have F4 level stuff brewing.

I don’t disagree but it seems a little odd to end the movie with a twist and then take 4 years to get back to it. But I’m excited to see these other ones too.

Reading up on Jane Foster as Thor, I got to checking up on what other characters in the comics have wielded Mjolnir. Doesn't mean the movies have to follow suit ... but some of the names could be interesting in the future MCU:

Spiderman
Valkyrie
Deadpool (!)
Professor X
Rogue
Silver Surfer
Bruce Banner (but not as Hulk)
Black Widow (if she ever comes back)

and ... both Doctor Doom and Magneto (uh oh)

...

EDIT: Eh, scratch Deadpool. Essentially, he had a facsimile Mjolnir.

Check out the Hero Blend podcast for more details on the release from Saturday.

Apparently Phase 4 runs about two years - so it looks phase 4 is the movies listed plus the streaming content.

Here's a breakdown I found on TVLine's SDCC Review....

Quote

 

Marvel Studios’ new, MCU-based TV series for the Disney+ streaming service will start hitting your screens in Fall 2020.

The rollout of Marvel’s initial Disney+ slate was revealed on Saturday night at the San Diego Comic-Con, in tandem with the entertainment giant’s next phase of movies — which includes Black Widow in May 2020The Eternals in November 2020Shang-Chi in February 2021Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (May 2021)Thor: Love and Thunder (November 2021) and a Mahershala Ali-led Blade.

As for the TV series…

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, starring Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan and Daniel Bruhl (as Baron Zemo), begins streaming in the fall of 2020.

Loki, with Tom Hiddleston reprising his infamous role, is set to bow in spring 2021.

WandaVision, starring Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany and Teyonah Parris (as an adult version of Captain Marvel‘s Monica Rambeau), also launches in spring 2021.

What If… ?, the first animated series in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, features Jeffrey Wright voicing The Watcher and a whole lotta MCU vets reprising their roles; it starts streaming in summer 2021.

Hawkeye, featuring (as one would hope) Jeremy Renner in the title role and a yet-to-be cast Kate Bishop, debuts in the fall of 2021.

 

Looking forward to the TV shows almost as much, if not moreso, than the movie releases!  I grew up on reading the Avengers, with Hawkeye, SW, Viz, and WonderMan being fun reads and storylines.  I'm hoping we may see some of that in these series'.

From a movie standpoint, BW in May 2020 seems good, but no blockbuster next summer.

I wonder if Wandavision is set before Infinity War or if it will employ a ton of flashbacks?  I ask seeing that Bettany is starring in it.

I don't have any issues with the Lady Thor story line idea. 

I only hope, as some one who is going to rewatch these movies many times over the coming decades, that they make Jane really earn the right to wield the hammer.  I don't want it to cheapen the incredible moment in Endgame where Cap is finally deemed worthy.

I believe they said Saturday that it is set post-Endgame, but not much info on how that will work with Bettany. If it will be flashbacks like you said or some sort of multi-verse type thing as they said Wandavision will lead directly into Dr Strange 2.

One nice thing about all the MCU tv shows not starting until late next year is no need for me to get Disney + streaming service at launch this November. Can probably wait until spring of 2021 as Falcon+WS will be done and Loki/Wandavision would be coming out around that time.
