As mentioned in our review of Endgame: When one door closes, another opens.
With Spider-Man: Far From Home set to close out the Phase 3 releases of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, fans can’t help but ask: what’s next?
The Disney Plus Original Shows
Most might have already heard that Disney+ is slated to launch worldwide, commencing from the end of this year. With Disney Plus’ launch, a couple of Marvel series starring some of the MCU’s less well-known characters, will be launching with it.
**WARNING: CONTAINS ENDGAME SPOILERS**
Loki will be one of the characters having their own spin-offs. There was set-up for this in Endgame, where he takes the Tessarect in one of the alternate timelines and disappears with it.
Alternatively, it might follow his antics that lead up to certain events in the MCU: working for Thanos in Phase 1, how he managed to cheat death multiple times, or maybe even how he ended up on that garbage planet in Thor: Ragnarok.
Vision and Wanda, as well as Falcon and the Winter Soldier, have also been confirmed as releases! Though it is unclear what the premise of the former will be, the latter was set up in Endgame as well. After all, it’s in Endgame that Falcon receives Captain America’s shield and takes on his mantle.
More Films in Phase 4!
Though Marvel Studios’ has been fairly tight-lipped about the coming films, there are a couple of releases that we know about for sure! For one, a solo movie for Black Widow is set to start filming this year, meaning that it will likely be released sometime in 2020.
Taking the events of Endgame into consideration, it will most likely be a prequel film. Maybe the film will focus on how she was trained and ended up joining SHIELD, or the events of the Budapest mission they keep mentioning.
For another, Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3 is a confirmed release. The release date for the movie is still unconfirmed, though. After all, director James Gunn (who was fired, then hired again) will only commence filming once he’s wrapped up filming for The Suicide Squad.
Other than those two, the rest have yet to see concrete action. There are talks of sequels for Black Panther, Doctor Strange and Captain Marvel; along with new movies surrounding The Eternals, and the introduction of the MCU’s first asian hero: Shang-Chi.
Either way, we’re definitely in for another few years’ worth of hero movies to enjoy on the big screen.
