Disney yesterday revealed its movie slate for the next few years, revealing that plans for the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Phase Four are already well underway. Between 2020 and 2022, a further eight as-yet-untitled MCU films are set for release.
Take a look at the slate as posted by CNN’s Frank Pallotta below:
The specifics of the movies are yet to be announced, but a standalone Black Widow film and new feature and potential franchise The Eternals are expected inclusions, along with Black Panther 2, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and Marvel’s first Asian superhero movie Shang-Chi.
Rumors broke earlier today that the Scarlett Johansson-starring Black Widow has started production already, so that could be the first of the eight movies to premiere.
In addition to these upcoming MCU films, fellow Marvel Comics property and X-Men spin-off The New Mutants is set to land in April 2020. X-Men franchises including Deadpool have until now been licensed to 21st Century Fox, preventing them from becoming part of the MCU. But with Disney’s purchase of 21st Century Fox this year, it’s expected that the X-Men universe will crossover into the MCU at some stage in the future.
The next Marvel movie and conclusion to the MCU’s Phase Three, Spider-Man: Far From Home, lands in theaters this summer on July 2. Watch the trailer below.
