The cast will include Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Lauren Ridloff, Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek, Lia McHugh and Don Lee.

First up, The Eternals slated to hit theaters November 6, 2020.

The first out of the gate, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, will have Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan reprising the roles of their signature characters in fall 2020.

Up next for Phase 4 and coming in February 12, 2021, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings featuring Simu Liu, Awkwafina and Tony Leung, directed by Destin Daniel Cretton. Awkwafina will also star in an unspecified role. "We pitched this idea of Hall H and he was in".

Lastly, Marvel also confirmed what was reported months ago: It's working on a series starring Jeremy Renner's Clint Barton. Tom Hiddleston-back in his role of the mercurial Loki, the god of mischief and everyone's favorite villain-received a huge welcome from fans when Feige brought him out on stage. The series will take place after Endgame, which raises some interesting questions. Olsen is confirmed to appear in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, in theaters May 7, 2021. The timeline for the Marvel Cinematic Universe now has Mjolnir shattered to pieces. "What If...?" is being created exclusively for Disney+ and features stories that present alternate realities in the Marvel universe.


Feige also said Saturday that in just a few days, not accounting for inflation, Avengers: Endgame will also surpass Avatar as the highest grossing film of all time.

Comic fans will be elated to hear that the animated series What If...? will be hitting Disney+ in summer 2021.

Among the several announcements, the next installment for Thor's series was revealed.

We love how elegant the 44-year-old mom looked in her head-to-toe black ensemble and appreciated that she kept her look clean and minimal, not taking away from the event.

"Hawkeye" launches on Disney+ in the fall of 2021. The Thor series will have an upcoming fourth film titled Thor: Love and Thunder.


The answer came at the tail end of the Thor: Love and Thunder section of Marvel's presentation: Portman is coming back as Jane Foster to take up the hammer and become the female Thor.

There is no word yet on who will be cast, who will direct, or even who will write the script.

Excitingly, we are being told the film will directly overlap with the Wanda and Vision Disney+ TV show as Marvel finally started to integrate its MCU and wider universes.

Feige surprised the audience with the first footage from "Black Widow", which is now in production.

Black Widow will be a prequel that stars Scarlett Johansson in the titular role, alongside co-stars Rachel Weisz, David Harbour and Florence Pugh.


One major surprise was the announcement of Oscar victor Mahershala Ali as Blade the vampire hunter, a role played by Wesley Snipes in the 1998 film.
