"I'm going to work 10 times harder", Jolie said when asked how she would approach her character of Thena.

In addition to Jolie, the film will star Richard Madden, Salma Hayek, Kumail Nanjiani, Brian Tyree Henry, Lauren Ridloff and Don Lee. Directed by Chloé Zhao, the movie is slated to release on November 6, 2020. After we got a smart (yet slightly frustrating) take on the character in Iron Man 3, the real Mandarin is set to be the main villain of Shang-Chi with Tony Leung landing the role.

Looking at the Phase 4 announcements at Comic Con, you could be forgiven for wondering why there are only five movies announced alongside the Disney+ shows. Her character will actually become a female Thor, and on top of that Valkyrie was also confirmed as an LGBTQ+ superhero, and we can expect all this on November 5, 2021. Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan will reprise their roles as Falcon and the Winter Soldier respectively for a similarly titled Disney+ series. "What If...?" is being created exclusively for Disney+ and features stories that present alternate realities in the Marvel universe.


Angelina Jolie surprised everyone in Hall H at Comic Con on July 20 when she showed up for the press call for Marvel's The Eternals. The audience only knew going in that Feige would be joined by some "special guests". This movie will tie directly into the events of WandaVision and will feature Elizabeth Olsen as the Scarlet Witch.

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

They appeared on stage in San Diego alongside Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman and others who will return in the upcoming movies. The series will have voice work from numerous world's favorite Marvel actors from over the years.


We didn't get full reveals of anything else, but we were told in passing that Marvel is working on Black Panther and Captain Marvel sequels, as well as trying to bring Fantastic Four and X-Men into the MCU.

And, taking over the role from Wesley Snipes is none other than Mahershala Ali, the two-time Oscar victor known for his roles in Alita: Battle Angel and Moonlight.

"But all that stuff is rumoured", he said with a smile. After a years-long absence from the big screen, Blade will be making his triumphant return, portrayed by none other than Mahershala Ali.


Mahershala Ali is to take over the role of Blade from Wesley Snipes.
