- Blade – During San Diego Comic-Con 2019, Marvel announced that they will be rebooting Blade with Mahershala Ali as the lead.
- Fantastic Four – With Disney’s acquisition of Fox Studios, Marvel now has access to the Fantastic Four characters. Fans have been eagerly anticipating their inclusion in the MCU.
- X-Men – Similarly, Disney’s acquisition also means that Marvel could potentially introduce X-Men characters into their universe.
- Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 – Although originally slated for a 2020 release date, this movie was put on hold due to director James Gunn being fired and then rehired by Disney.
