What’s Next For The MCU After ‘Avengers: Endgame’
The release of Avenger’s Endgame marked an end of sorts for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and while this may be the last Avenger’s movie, for now, the MCU has a golden opportunity to expand outside its core cast across television and film.
Spiderman: Far From Home, which is co-produced by Sony, is technically the end for Phase 3 and could be an indicator of what direction Marvel is going to take their films post Endgame.
The film will star Tom Holland alongside Jake Gyllenhaal, who plays Mysterio, as they team up to fight the Elemental in Europe. Samuel L. Jackson, Zendaya, and Cobie Smulders are set to reprise their roles in the movie.
The state of Phase 4 is still a mystery, but here are the films that are expected to be released soon after.
Black Widow, despite what happened to her in Endgame, is finally getting a solo movie that will most likely be a prequel detailing her past. Scarlett Johansson is set to reprise her role in the film.
The success of Black Panther and Captain Marvel will likely mean sequel for them. Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Antman are also expected to have sequels.
New projects for Marvel include Shang-Chi and The Eternals, who as of yet don’t have a release date.
The Fantastic Four and the X-Men are expected to make their entrance into the MCU, but info has been pretty scarce. And while the Fantastic Four will have an easier time transitioning into the MCU, the X-Men along with the introduction of mutants in a universe devoid of them will prove difficult.
Disney+ is set to launch this November along with some MCU related shows. Falcon & Winter Soldier is expected to be released after the launch of the streaming service. WandaVision, Loki, and a Hawkeye series are forthcoming.
While Avenger: Endgame may have been an end to some of our favorite characters, the MCU is only beginning to expand.
