Though Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige recently reaffirmed that they won’t be announcing any future releases until this year’s slate is over and done with, various reports have already given us a pretty good idea of what’s to come in the next phase of the franchise. And in a new piece from ComicBook.com, a list is offered of the first six MCU flicks that are expected to come out after Avengers: Endgame brings the current era to a close.
Of course, one post-Endgame release that you’re likely well aware of by now is Spider-Man: Far From Home, with the web-slinger set to return to theaters on July 5th of this year. It’s only once you move past Peter Parker’s next solo debut that things seem less set in stone, though it’s generally believed that the long-awaited Black Widow solo movie is aiming for a 2020 release, possibly on May 1st. Previous reports indicate that Natasha Romanoff’s standalone outing will be one of two Marvel movies coming out next year, the other being The Eternals, which is potentially on course to hit theaters on November 6th.
Meanwhile, we also know that both Black Panther and Doctor Strange have sequels on the way, with directors Ryan Coogler and Scott Derrickson each returning to their respective properties. Going by Marvel Studios’ various reported release slots, it’s speculated that Black Panther 2 might be headed for theaters on February 12th, 2021, followed by Doctor Strange 2 in May of the same year. Beyond that, it’s unclear what might be next on the agenda, but seeing how Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is on hold right now, our best bet might be the Shang-Chi movie, which was reported to be in development last year, and would serve as the studio’s first release led by an Asian character.
Anyway, while most of this schedule has yet to be confirmed, you can expect Marvel Studios to make some official announcements in the months following the release of Avengers: Endgame on April 26th, 2019.
