Last month, as the COVID-19 pandemic spread and became a harsher reality, Disney finally pulled the movie that would kick off its Summer, Black Widow, off the schedule. With the studio’s near future in question, fans wondered what might happen with the Marvel Cinematic Universe‘s phase 4.
Well, the folks at Disney have went forward in time… to view alternate futures, to see all the possible outcomes… and came up with a new schedule for their films, most notably for this website, Marvel’s phase 4. Here’s how things will shake out (for now at least):
- Black Widow: November 6. 2020
- Eternals: February 12, 2021
- Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings: May 7, 2021
- Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness: November 5, 2021
- Thor: Love and Thunder: February 18, 2022
Further out these Marvel movies were confirmed:
- Black Panther 2: May 8, 2022
- Captain Marvel 2: July 8, 2022 (newly announced)
Other films genre fans might be interested in include Mulan‘s new cinema debut on July 24 (good luck with that); and the oft delayed Indiana Jones V is now bumped to July 29, 2022. Yeesh.
The Artemis Fowl movie has been pulled from theatrical release and will stream on Disney+ someday, while (yes Zechs) the New Mutants remain in Limbo for now.
