Marvel Has MCU Phase 5 Fully Planned, Almost Announced at Comic-Con

Posted July 23, 2019

In Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con, Kevin Feige laid out the films and TV series that will make up phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Earlier the audience were teased with number of new productions and sequels from phase four of the Marvel cinematic universe.

But nothing in the MCU is ever what it seems. That's not to mention Feige's nod on stage to a Fantastic Four movie, so Phase 5 could be pretty well packed since you could get another six films out of it (including Blade) and still not have another Avengers movie in the mix.

Feige laid out that we're getting Black Panther 2, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3, Captain Marvel 2 and...

We gave you the details on this one yesterday, but in summary, Eternals will have an all-star cast including Angelina Jolie (Maleficent, Wanted), Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley), and Richard Madden (Game of Thrones) when it opens November 6, 2020. [Director Taika Waititi], who did such a spectacular job with Ragnarok, agreed to come back, had this idea of Love and Thunder and of tapping into that comic story.

We didn't learn about any new actors coming to Thor: Love and Thunder, but we did learn there's going to be a new Thor: Jane Foster, played once again by Natalie Portman.

Marvel's "first scary film" follows on May 7, 2021, when the Master of the Mystic Arts returns in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjiani, Richard Madden, Salma Hayek, Bryan Tyree Henry, David Harbour, Rachel Weisz, Florence Pugh, O-T Fagbenle, Simu Liu, Jeffrey Wright, Teyonah Parris, Mahershala Ali. However, unlike the other three phases, Phase 4 is only lasting two years. We expect to have a host of legacy content like classic Disney movies, and a number of MCU and Star Wars movies from launch day, but it looks like we'll be waiting a bit longer to get any exclusive Disney Plus shows.

Reportedly, Angelina Jolie confirmed her role in The Eternals during the Marvel panel at Comic-Con in San Diego. Chloé Zhao (The Rider) is directing The Eternals.

"Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" will be in theaters on February 12, 2021.

Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany will both reprise their roles as Scarlet Witch and Vision for what sounds like a seriously trippy series.

Unfortunately, that's a question that we probably won't be able to answer for a few years. The series will star Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan and Daniel Brühl and will hit the streaming service fall 2020.
