Marvel Studios took over San Diego Comic-Con this year, unveiling an impressively diverse phase four schedule that included Thor: Love and Thunder and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, as well as various other highly-anticipated future projects involving The Fantastic Four and X-Men. Perhaps the biggest news of the weekend was Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige’s announcement that two time Academy Award-winning actor Mahershala Ali has been cast as the MCU‘s version of Blade.

Listed in order of their release, here is every confirmed and rumored Marvel movie (including Sony’s Marvel Universe) coming our way over the next few years. Enjoy!

The New Mutants

Release: April 3, 2020

Universe: Sony’s Marvel Universe

Initially, The New Mutants was scheduled to be released in April of 2018, but the project was put on hold for two years to allow for reshoots. The story follows a group of young mutants trapped in a secret government facility and their desperate fight to escape. Directed by Josh Boone, the film stars Anya Taylor-Joy, Maisie Williams, Charlie Heaton, Henry Zaga, Blu Hunt, and Alice Braga.

Interestingly enough, New Mutants was one of the films Disney acquired from 20th Century Fox during the merger, making it one of the few films in history to be produced by Fox and distributed the Mouse House.

Black Widow

Release: May 1, 2020

Universe: Marvel Cinematic Universe

Ever since Black Widow sacrificed herself for the Soul Stone in Endgame, fans have been trying to figure out how Marvel would reintroduce Natasha for the Black Widow movie, and after Marvel Studio’s Hall H panel during SDCC 2019 over the weekend, we’ve finally got some answers. As expected, Scarlet Johansson will once again reprise her role as Natasha Romanoff, but we can now confirm that she’ll be joined by Rachel Weisz, David Harbour, O.T. Fagbenie, and Florence Pugh.

Harbour has been cast as Alexei Shostakov a.k.a. The Red Guardian, Pugh will play Yelena, Weisz will play Melina, and Fagbenie will play Mason. There has been mention of Ray Winstone joining the cast, but nothing has been confirmed as of yet. Black Widow will premiere on the Disney+ streaming service on May 1, 2020.

Universe: Marvel Cinematic Universe

Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan will reprise their roles in The Flacon and Winter Soldier, which will arrive on Disney+ in the Summer of 2021. It was also announced that Daniel Bruhl and Emily VanCamp will also be joining the cast. Bruhl will reprise his villainous role as Helmut Zemo, who was last seen in the 2014 movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier. VanCamp has been cast to play Sharon Carter, a well known S.H.I.E.L.D. agent and grandniece of Peggy Carter.

Venom 2

Release: October 2, 2020

Universe: Sony’s Marvel Universe

Despite the all the negative reviews, mainly from critics, it was presumed that Venom would be a massive flop, but fans loved the film and it became one of the highest-grossing films of 2018, pulling in an impressive $855 million.

Screenwriter Kelly Marcel will return to pen the sequel, and Tom Hardy and Michelle Williams will reprise their roles. Venom 2 is expected to be released in the fall of 2020. Woody Harrelson is said is be reprising his role as Cletus Kasady as well, which means we might get to see Venom and Carnage square off in the sequel, a sight comic book fans have been waiting for.

The Eternals

Release: November 6, 2020

Universe: Marvel Cinematic Universe

Marvel Studios has hired up and coming Chinese director, Chloe Zhao – best known for The Rider and Songs My Brothers Taught Me – to helm the upcoming superhero project. As announced by Kevin Feige during SDCC 2019, The Eternals stars Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani and Brian Tyree Henry. For those less familiar with the superpowered race of Celestials, the Eternals are an immortal race of people with superhuman abilities like flight, telepathy, and matter manipulation.

The Eternals is scheduled to arrive in theatres on November 6, 2020.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

Release: February 12, 2021

Universe: Marvel Cinematic Universe

In December 2018, Marvel Studios announced plans to create a Shang Chi movie, hiring Dave Callahan to write the screenplay and Destin Daniel Cretton to direct. For those less familiar with Shang Chi, he’s a martial arts master, eventual Avenger, and main character of Master of Kung Fu series published by Marvel Comics from 1974 to 1983.

We now know Marvel’s first Asain superhero movie will star newcomer Simu Liu (Kim’s Convenience) as Shang Chi and he’ll be joined by Tony Leung as the real Mandarin, and Crazy Rich Asians‘ Awkwafina in an unknown role. The film will be directed by Destin Daniel Cretton (The Glass Castle and Short Term 12) and will be released in winter of 2021.

Loki

Release: Spring 2021

Universe: Marvel Cinematic Universe

Although Loki is a series, we decided to include it on the list because of the shows inevitable connection to the MCU. We’ve known about the series for some time now, but Marvel Studios’ Hall H panel officially confirmed that Tom Hiddleston will reprise his role as God of Mischief in the Loki series, which is scheduled to arrive on Disney+ in the Spring of 2021.

According to the show’s official synopsis, Loki will follow the Prince of Lies as he  “pops up throughout human history as [an] unlikely influencer on historical events.”

WandaVision

Release: Spring 2021

Universe: Marvel Cinematic Universe

The upcoming WandaVision series will reunite Wanda Maximoff and Vision, with Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany reprising their roles. Mad Men‘s Teyonah Parris has also been cast in the upcoming series and will play Monica Rambeau a.k.a. Spectrum, who in the comics becomes Captain Marvel’s successor. The series will take place after the events of Avengers: Endgame, which has us wondering how Marvel intends on bringing back Vision, who was previously killed in Infinity War. That said, it wouldn’t be the first time a character was brought back from the dead.

Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness

Release: May 7, 2021

Universe: Marvel Cinematic Universe

Before the release of Endgame, it was announced that Scott Derrickson would return to direct the Doctor Strange sequel, which will also see Benedict Cumberbatch reprise his role as Dr. Stephen Strange. In a surprise twist, we learned that Doctor Strange would be joined by Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch – played by Elizabeth Olsen – in the upcoming sequel. We also learned Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness will be MCU’s first horror movie, which based on Derrickson’s filmography – which includes films like Sinister (2012) and The Exorcism of Emily Rose (2005) – actually makes a lot of sense.

Back in June 2018, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige revealed the Doctor Strange sequel was on the way and it would be set “a number of years on” from the first film, which now makes sense following the events of Avengers: Endgame.

What If…?

Release: Summer 2021

Universe: Marvel Cinematic Universe

One of the most intriguing announcements Marvel made during SDCC 2019 was the upcoming What If…? series, which was inspired by the 1977 comic book series that explored a different outcome to Marvel’s most famous and cherished storylines by changing a few key details. The series will be lead by Westworld‘s Jeffrey Wright, who has been cast to Uatu, a ‘Watcher’ who oversees the entire multiverse and occasionally involves himself from time-to-time. The remaining cast members include Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Neal McDonough, Sebastian Stan, Toby Jones, Josh Brolin, Micheal Rooker, Karen Gillan, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Jeff Goldblum, and many more. Westworld‘s Jeffrey Wright will be playing Uatu, a ‘Watcher’ who oversees the entire multiverse and gets involved from time-to-time.

Marvel’s What If…? will arrive on Disney+ in the summer of 2021.

Hawkeye

Release: Fall 2021

Universe: Marvel Cinematic Universe

The recently announced Hawkeye series will see Jeremy Renner reprise his role as Clint Barton/Hawkeye as he passes the torch to Kate Bishop. The series will take place after the events of Avengers: Endgame and in the words of Renner, “I get to teach someone else how to be a superhero without superpowers.” Few details have been released thus far, but for those less familiar with Matt Fraction and David Aja’s 2013 Hawkeye comic series, the logo below is heavily inspired by their work and could be the basis for upcoming TV series.

Thor: Love and Thunder

Release: November 5, 2021

Universe: Marvel Cinematic Universe

Marvel Studios has confirmed that Thor: Ragnarok‘s Taika Waititi will return to write and direct Thor 4, one of the many films planned for Marvel’s next phase. Chris Hemsworth will reprise his role as the son of Odin in the fourth installment and he’ll be joined by Tessa Thompson as Valkyrie and Natalie Portman as Jane Foster. We also learned that Marvel plans to have Foster wield Thor’s hammer in the upcoming film and while the thought may trigger some, it’s worth noting that a female Thor took over in the comics in 2014, so the gender-flop is nothing new.

Unfortunately, now that Waititi is 100% working on the next Thor movie, the live-action Akira adaptation the director was working on has been put on hold. Warner Bros. initially acquired the rights to the 1988 Japanese animated post-apocalyptic cyberpunk adaptation in 2002 but after 17 years of failed attempts to get Akira going, Waititi looked like the savior the film needed… and now he’s gone.

Blade

Release: TBA

Universe: Marvel Cinematic Universe

One of the biggest surprises of SDCC 2019 was Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige announcing actor Mahershala Ali (Green Book) has been cast as the MCU’s version of Blade. Other than Ali’s involvement, we know very little about the upcoming movie, but it wasn’t part of their phase four plans, so fans shouldn’t expect to see Blade hit theatres until 2022.

Actor Wesley Snipes, who famously played the Daywalker in the original trilogy, sent a statement to ComicBook.com to show his support for both the movie and Ali.

“To all the DAYWALKERS losing their minds right now, chillaaxx. Although the news comes as a surprise, it’s ALL GOOD. Such is the ‘business’ of ‘entertainment!’ Much peace to the MCU crew – always a fan. Honor and respect to the grandmaster Stan. Congratulations and Salaam to Mahershala Ali, a beautiful and talented artist whose expressions I look forward to experiencing for many years to come. Inshallah, we will someday work together. Most importantly to my loyal fans, the incredible outpouring of love is overwhelming. I am grateful for the never-ending support. So, ‘nah fret nah worry, it’s not de end of de story.’ Welcome to the Daywalker Klique.”

Captain Marvel 2

Release: TBD

Universe: Marvel Cinematic Universe

Despite all the ridiculousness surrounding the film’s release, Captain Marvel still managed to gross over $1 billion at the worldwide box office. We thought Brie Larson did a wonderful job as Carol Danvers and can’t wait to see her suit up again.

During SDCC 2019, Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige has revealed that Captain Marvel 2 is on the way, but no release date has been confirmed as of yet. With Tony Stark, Black Widow, and Captain America now gone, the powerful and experienced Captain Marvel will likely lead the new wave of Avengers when that time comes.

Black Panther 2

Release: TBD

Universe: Marvel Cinematic Universe

Kevin Feige also announced the upcoming release a Black Panther sequel, although much like Captain Marvel 2, no release date has been set. We do know Ryan Coogler will return to write and direct the sequel, which we’re hearing will begin production by the end of 2019 or early 2020. Chadwick Boseman will reprise his role as T’Challa, but that’s the only cast member we can confirm at this moment. There have been rumors of Michael B. Jordan returning, but for now, we’ll have to wait and see.

The Fantastic Four

Release: TBD

Universe: Marvel Cinematic Universe

Every Fantastic Four movie released thus far has been an embarrassment to the source material, but now that Marvel Studios is in control we have no doubt the iconic superhero team will finally have their day in the sun. Feige confirmed last weekend that the Fantastic Four is coming to the MCU, but he didn’t elaborate on the cast, release date or any other details, so as of now, we now as much as you do.

Who do you think Marvel Studios should cast in the upcoming Fantastic Four movie?

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 – Rumored

Release: TBD

Universe: Sony’s Marvel Universe

Before the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse‘s release, the film received a tremendous amount of buzz, which led to Sony announcing that both a sequel and spin-off movie were in development. The sequel will be written and directed by David Callaham and Joaquim Dos Santos, best known for Avatar: The Last Airbender. We’ll discuss the spin-off in more detail below.

The Into the Spider-Verse 2 will continue Miles Morales’ story while also furthering to explore the newly introduced Spider-Verse in greater detail. Based on the post-credit scene, which featured Miguel O’Hara/Spider-Man 2099, there’s a strong chance the evil organization known as Alchemax, the ones responsible for giving Miles his powers, play a large role in the sequel.

Spider-Women  – Rumored

Release: TBD

Universe: Sony’s Marvel Universe

As mentioned above, Sony is making an animated Spider-Verse spin-off film called Spider-Women and although no release date has been confirmed, we do know the story will follow three generations of female Spider-related characters. The screenplay for the female-centric superhero movie will be written by Bek Smith, directed by Lauren Montgomery, and produced by Amy Pascal.

We already know that Spider-Gwen, voiced by Hailee Steinfeld, will return for the spin-off, but we’re hearing there’s a strong chance Jessica Drew/Spider-Women and Cindy Moon/Silk will also be introduced.

Silver and Black – Rumored

Release: TBD

Universe: Sony’s Marvel Universe

Initially, Sony’s Silver & Black, featuring the team-up of Black Cat and Silver Sable, was intended to be released on February 8, 2019, but after years of delays and uncertainty surrounding the script, Sony canceled the project in August 2018 and replaced it with two solo films.

Originally hired to direct the team-up movie, Gina Prince-Bythewood will remain involved as a producer on both films, but Sony has decided to hire two new female directors to helm each film. Rumor is Black Cat will be the first to be released, but so far that’s all we know.

Ms. Marvel – Rumored

Release: TBD

Universe: Marvel Cinematic Universe

Considering the financial success of Captain Marvel and the need for more diversity in the MCU, the thought of Ms. Marvel making her way into the MCU isn’t all that far fetched, but despite the rumors, if Kamala Khan was introduced, it would likely be in a Captain Marvel sequel, which will go into more detail below.

While doing press for Captain Marvel back in March, Brie Larson revealed that she’d love to see Ms. Marvel in the sequel, saying “My dream would be that Ms. Marvel gets to come into play.”

Ant-Man and the Wasp 2 – Rumored

Release: TBD

Universe: Marvel Cinematic Universe

Earlier this year, Michael Douglas revealed despite there being a few discussions about the possibility of a third Ant-Man film, nothing concrete has been set in stone as of yet.

There’s been talk [about another Ant-Man]… [but] there’s been nothing formal right now that I know of. They always kind of spring it on me. The first time you hear about it, it’s already in its third rewrite.

Given the success of both Peyton Reed’s films and fans love of trilogies, it wouldn’t surprise us if Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly suit up once again.

Nova – Rumored

Release: TBD

Universe: Marvel Cinematic Universe

Although nothing has been confirmed as of yet, during an interview with Comicbook.com, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige discussed the potential of Nova joining the MCU following the events of Endgame, saying “Nova is… if we have a big board with a bunch of characters that have more immediate potential, Nova is on that board,”

Feige went on to explain that Nova’s connection to the Guardians and their shared universe makes him an ideal candidate moving forward, “Because of the connection to the Guardians universe, because there are more than one examples to pull from in the comics that are interesting. And you’re absolutely right, he was in the earliest drafts of the [Guardians of the Galaxy].”
