Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 4 Breakdown Part 2 #SDCC50

If you haven’t read my “Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 4 Breakdown Part 1” , check HERE.

There will be details revealed below that may be considered spoilers for anyone who hasn’t seen “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame”, If you don’t care, carry-on.

The events in the WandaVision series will be directly tied to the multiverse, and lead into…

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
Action, Fantasy, Horror | 7 May 2021

Starring: Benedict Cumberbatch, Elizabeth Olsen
Director: Scott Derrickson

Scott Derrickson (Sinister, Doctor Strange) returns to the Director’s chair, but this time goes back to his roots. “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” is currently billed as the MCU’s first horror film. While certainly the events of “Avengers: Endgame” play a part, the other deals with the Sorcerer Supreme learning the true cost of using magic. At least he won’t be alone, this time around he’ll be joined by Scarlet Witch.

Sandwiched before the next Cinematic Adventure are three Disney+ (Disney Plus) series, the first will be..

Loki
TV Series (Spring 2021)

Starring: Tom Hiddleston

Also set after the events of “Avengers: Endgame”, This series gets to answer one of the most interesting mysteries,

What happened to the Loki who vanished in New York, 2012?

This is the Loki who prior to his escape got a good Hulk trashing in Avengers tower. Unlike the one who met his demise in “Avengers: Infinity War”, This is a raw, mischievous and armed with a tesseract Loki. I can’t help but be a little excited of all the possibilities.

The next Disney+ (Disney Plus) series is an animated entry.

What If…?
Animated | Summer 2021

Starring: Jeffrey Wright, Hayley Atwell, Chadwick Boseman, Josh Brolin and more.

What If…? is the very first animated series made by Marvel Studios, exploring pivotal moments from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and turning them on their head. For example,

What if, Agent Carter took the super-soldier serum instead of Steve Rogers?

With many other questions, the series brings back many of the original cast members to voice their big-screen counterparts, Hayley Atwell, Chadwick Boseman, Josh Brolin all return and more. Narrated by “The Watcher”, a Sentient being watching over the events of the MCU voiced by none other than brilliant actor, Jeffrey Wright.

The last Disney+ (Disney Plus) series in Phase 4 is

Hawkeye
Action, Adventure | Fall 2021

Starring: Jeremy Renner

Jeremy Renner returns as a very different Clint Barton. The series will explore some of the events between “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame” but will center on Clint mentoring Kate Bishop, a young Avenger who eventually takes up the mantle of Hawkeye. It was mentioned that the series.

Finally, the last entry for Phase 4 is

Thor: Love and Thunder
Action, Adventure, Comedy | 5 November 2021

Starring: Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Natalie Portman
Director: Taika Waititi

In 2018, Chris Helmsworth said in an interview with Channel 7’s Sunrise in Australia, “My contract’s coming to an end, we’ve just finished the last two Avengers,” the star confirmed to “Who knows what the future holds.” “We felt like we reinvented the last one in a big way. It felt refreshed and re-energized. We might have a conversation if there’s another great script that comes along. But at the moment that’s it.”

Looks like they found the right script.

Inspired by “The Mighty Thor” storyline written by Jason Aaron and Russell Dauterman, where Jane Foster wields Mjolnir becoming the first female Thor.
“Thor: Love and Thunder”, Reunites Director Taika Waititi with his Ragnorok co-stars Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson and ups the ante with Natalie Portman returning as Jane Foster.

2022 and beyond.

Closing out the panel Marvel Studios President, Kevin Feige made one final announcement, teasing one film. He invites Academy Award-winning actor Mahershala Ali to the stage and announces the return of…

Blade
Action, Adventure, Fantasy | 2022

Starring: Mahershala Ali

The new Blade logo was designed by artist Justin Harder and the team at Mocean. This morning I was able to chat with Mr. Harder, “I think it’s important for fans of the films to know that these massive movie logos and brands get thought about by artists and not just marketing agencies. I pushed to get away from where they’d been in the past, but to keep the spirit and tone of BLADE intact, hopefully putting a new spin on what it can be. Cool, sexy, slick, dangerous, and different. Hopefully, we got there.” I may be slightly biased, I’d say the team at Mocean and Mr. Harder nailed it.

So here’s the complete summary.
