With the trailer of Spiderman: No Way Home dropping and exciting Netizens to the core, we bring to you here a complete list of what to expect in the next instalments of the MCU Phase 4. But Marvel has some more exciting movies lined up in its Phase 4. And this is all we need to know about it!
1. Shang Chi and the Legend of the 10 Rings – September 3, 2021.
This movie has had quite a lashing from China since it was released. It also happens to be Marvel's first Kung-Fu film. This movie will center around the character Shang-Chi, a legendary martial arts master, and can be found on the page of the 1973 comic of the same name.
2. The Eternals – November 5, 2021
Next, we come to the movie, which has been a source of non-stop buzz since the teaser was dropped. Be it Angelina Jolie's Thena or the million-dollar question "Why didn't the Eternals get involved before?" this movie has topped the charts of all discussion and seems like it will never cease to do so. Directed by Academy Award Winning Director Chloe Zhao, this movie brings us closer to the multiverse concept and its infinite beings. The ten-odd superhumans of this movie are proto-humans created by God-Like aliens, better known as Celestials.
3.Spiderman: No Way Home – December 17, 2021
This Spiderman venture had almost been shelved owing to the difference between Sony Movies and MCU. The current movie picks up where the last one ended in a world where everyone knows the secret identity of Spiderman and where he is being blamed for a terrorist attack and everything that is wrong with society. With Tony Stark no longer at the helm, he turns to Doctor Strange, and things get a little fun with a lot of multiverse madness. Jamie Foxx's Electro and Alfred Molina's Ock from the previous Spiderman Movies are set to come back here.
4.Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness – March 25, 2022
Occurrences of this movie are said to be happening right after the events of WandaVision. While there have been talks of the Scarlett Witch playing a major role in the movie, it is often open to dispute whether it is a protagonist or antagonist. With Sam Reimi taking charge of the Master of the Mystic Arts, Benedict Wong and Chiwetel Ejiofor will also be back for this movie.
5.Thor: Love and Thunder – May 6, 2022
This movie brings back the Thor: Ragnarok duo – Director Taika Waititi and Chris Hemsworth. What's more amazing is that this movie will have Christian Bale playing the antagonist, Gorr the God Butcher. While it is not clear yet, how Christian fits into the scene, it is clear that he will be playing a major role. While the MCU had made it perfectly clear that there won't be any further standalone movies, Thor certainly struck Thunder when the Ragnarok director decided to play an epic part in this movie again. It brought life back to the series entirely.
6.Black Panther: Wakanda Forever – July 8, 2022
This would be the first Black Panther Movie after the passing of Chadwick Boseman. Ryan Coogler is apparently set to take up the reins of the film. Other significant cast members include Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, and Martin Freeman.
7.The Marvels – November 11, 2022
The sequel of the Captain Marvel Movie; first decided as Captain Marvel 2 but later renamed as The Marvels. Just like Black Panther, the studio seems to be in absolutely no hurry to start off or get going on this project. The Bree Larson starrer Marvel Heroine movie is in talks now and will be available for screening for audiences by 2022. The movie will be directed by Nia DaCosta.
8.Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania – February 17, 2023
Marvels' first major release is scheduled for 2023, and also the movie that introduces the audiences to Kang the Conqueror. Peyton Reed would direct this movie as well after the previous two Ant-Man movies and will see Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly in major roles. Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer will also be back for their respective roles. The newest additions to the cast would be Katheryn Newton as Cassie Lang and Jonathan Majors as the antagonist Kang the Conqueror.
9.Guardians of the Galaxy – May 5, 2023
Not much has been heard about these movies, except for the row between James Gunn and the MCU, thereby the director going ahead and signing Suicide Squad. Now, all we know is this film will start production and filming once the director has finished work on the Suicide Squad.
Again the studios are keeping this project under wraps, but it is only known that Jon Watts of the Spider-man Trilogy has been signed to direct this movie. After the merger of Sony Fox, this would be the first MCU venture for Fantastic Four, and we are all looking forward to it.
The MCU version of the X-Men, of course! And yes, there would be twists, so the studios are keeping it under wraps, and that is all we know about it till now.
