And boy, are we in for a treat.

Set to hit theatres

Having been up in the air for ages, the long-rumoured Black Widow has finally been greenlit for an official release, and it’s set to star Scarlett Johansson, David Harbour, Florence Pugh, O-T Fagbenie and Rachel Weisz. Cafe Shortland will direct the movie, and it’s set for the big screen on 1 May 2020.

The movie will also take place shortly after Captain America: Civil War, which makes it a prequel to the more recent Avengers films.

Cameos by our fav Capt. America and Iron Man? One can only hope.

And it seems that elsewhere, the Thunder God will be getting a sequel as well.

Thor: Love and Thunder, the fourth in the series, is slated for a release on 5 Nov 2021. And here’s the big thing:

Natalie Portman will be reprising her role as Thor’s love interest, Jane Foster…

And she’ll be taking the hammer with her too.

Well, I wonder how Thor will feel about that. 😉

Also, the Falcon and Winter soldier original TV series will arrive on Disney Plus, Disney’s own streaming service, in fall 2020. Wondering about how Falcon’s gonna step into Capt’s ginormous shoes? This show’s definitely gonna be the one to tell you how.

For fans of Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch, rejoice, because your favourite actress will be starring in not just one title film…

But two.

WandaVision, a Marvel original TV series starring Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, will arrive in spring 2021.

And Elizabeth Olsen will apparently be starring in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness too, opposite the ever-charismatic Benedict Cumberbatch. The Doctor Strange sequel will arrive on 7 May 2021, and is toted to be the first MCU horror film in the Universe.

Well, that sounds like a tough task for Benedict Scareherback, alright.

Marvel’s The Eternals movie will also be going ahead and is slated for a release on 6 Nov next year. Angelina Jolie and Ma Dong Seok have been announced amongst the cast members.

Simu Liu has also been tapped to star as Shang-Chi in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, which will arrive on February 2021.

Other films in the works

And that’s not all either. Apparently, Blade will be set for a reboot in Kevin Feige’s MCU, and two-time Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali has been appointed to play the zombie-kicking, badass role.

Fantastic Four reboot has also been confirmed, as well as Guardians of the Galaxy 3, Captain Marvel 2 and Mutants. While no other details were given, the films are expected to release post-2021.

Marvel Magic

Avengers: Endgame might have broken our hearts.

Spider-Man: Far From Home might have ended with a stunning revelation.

But from the looks of it…

Marvel’s far from being done with us.

Continue making those epic films, Marvel. Our wallets might get sucked dry from all the box office tickets, but if there’s one thing for sure.

It’s at the very least, worth it.
