Marvel Phase 4 is the highly anticipated next chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). After the epic conclusion of the Infinity Saga, fans have been eagerly waiting to see what’s next for their favorite superheroes. Marvel Studios has recently announced their Phase 4 movie lineup, and it looks like there are some exciting times ahead!
The first movie in Phase 4 is “Black Widow,” which follows Natasha Romanoff’s (Scarlett Johansson) journey after the events of “Captain America: Civil War.” The film will explore her past and introduce new characters like Yelena Belova (Florence Pugh) and Taskmaster. Fans have been waiting for a Black Widow solo film for years, and it seems like it will be worth the wait.
“The Eternals” is a brand new addition to the MCU, introducing a group of immortal beings who have secretly lived on Earth for thousands of years. The movie boasts an impressive cast, including Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, and Kumail Nanjiani. With an entirely new set of characters and mythology, “The Eternals” promises to bring something fresh to the MCU.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings
“Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” is another new addition to Phase 4, introducing Marvel’s first Asian superhero. Played by Simu Liu, Shang-Chi is a skilled martial artist who must confront his past when he’s drawn into the mysterious Ten Rings organization. The film also features Tony Leung as Wenwu/The Mandarin, who has been teased in previous MCU movies but never fully explored.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
“Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” brings back Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme, this time exploring different dimensions and realities. The movie will also feature Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, tying into the events of the Disney+ series “WandaVision.” With director Sam Raimi at the helm, fans are excited to see what kind of horror elements will be added to the MCU.
Spider-Man: No Way Home
“Spider-Man: No Way Home” has been shrouded in secrecy, with very little information released so far.
