Marvel Studios blew everyones’ mind at San Diego Comic-Con by announcing all their new phase 4 projects.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige went full shock and awe with his announcements in Hall H of the San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday night.
He started things off by announcing The Eternals, which will star, among others, Salma Hayek as Ajak and Angelina Jolie as Thena. It’s being released November 6, 2020.

Next came the announcement of the first original Marvel series that will be streaming exclusively on the new Disney+ platform, “The Falcon and The Winter Soldier.” It will be released next fall.
Marvel then announced that Shang-Chi will make his first big screen appearance in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. Simu Liu will play the lead role, and it’s coming out February 12, 2021.
Another Disney+ series was next up with “WandaVision” being announced. It will hit the streaming service in spring 2021.
As was rumored for some time, Tom Hiddleston will reprise his role as Loki but this time on the small screen in the Disney+ series, “Loki,” which comes out spring of 2021.

Going back to the big screen, Feige announced Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Benedict Cumberbatch is returning to play Stephen Strange, but will be joined by Elizabeth Olsen as the Scarlet Witch. It comes out May 7, 2021.
Marvel’s first animated series will hit Disney+ in the summer of 2021 with “What If…?,” which will present “alternate realities in the Marvel Universe.” Many MCU actors will make appearances as voiceover talent in the series.
Joining “Loki” on the small screen will be “Hawkeye,” which hits Disney+ in the fall of 2021. Jeremy Renner will play the lead, and be joined by Kate Bishop.

Natalie Portman will play Jane Foster in Thor: Love and Thunder, and she will become the first ever female Thor. She’ll be joined on-screen by Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson. It hits theaters November 5, 2021.
Scarlett Johansson will reprise her character in Black Widow, which will be the next Marvel movie to hit theaters. It comes out May 1, 2020.
Perhaps the most shocking announcement of the night came at the very end of the panel, when Mahershala Ali was brought on stage and introduced as the next Blade. It does not yet have a release date.
As if ALL OF THAT wasn’t enough, Feige closed out the panel by announcing that a new Fantastic Four film will be created at some point — we don’t know when yet, or who it will star.
And of course there’s also Captain Marvel 2, Black Panther 2, and Avengers 5. It’s a LOT to take in.
