Last night was a big deal for Marvel. They announced what they’re calling Phase Four, which includes five films and five Disney+ shows. However, that wasn’t all they announced. In addition to the last minute Blade reveal, with Mahershala Ali playing the Daywalker, Kevin Feige let loose that a bunch of sequels were confirmed but not dated yet. He also mentioned the Fantastic Four and Mutants are coming to the MCU. That last bit is something we all assumed, but this was the official word we’ve been waiting for.
The sequels that were confirmed are Black Panther 2, Captain Marvel 2, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. All of these are projects we have all assumed would happen. The first Black Panther made over $700 million at the domestic office while taking in $1.3 billion worldwide. The first two Guardians of the Galaxy films brought in $ 1.63 billion worldwide, and Captain Marvel also broke the $1 billion mark in the worldwide market. Marvel and Disney would have been insane to not make sequels to these films.
As for Marvel’s first family and the X-Men, nothing solid was given other than they are coming. I was actually surprised that they even mentioned them at SDCC and didn’t save them for a big reveal at D23. That may still happen as the Disney exclusive convention is next month. Marvel has revealed that they have three dates for 2022 and those could easily be filled by films with Mutants and the Fantastic Four. What about that third slot? I am hoping for a third MCU Spider-Man film to be announced.
