And believe it or not, Kevin Feige teased even more movies in 2022 and beyond. But, here we cover some of the highlights.
Black Widow’s Budapest backstory has been teased a lot in the MCU, and this movie is exactly about that. Fans will get to see what Natasha perceives to be her flawed side while she looks to wipe some of the red in her ledger.
A teaser was played at the SDCC which confirmed the villain to be the physical mimic The Taskmaster, actor unknown. The cast included David Harbour, Florence Pugh, O-T Fagbenle, and Rachel Weisz.
The Eternals is about an immortal alien race that’s sent to earth by the Celestials to protect mankind from the Deviants. MCU has roped in Angelina Jolie to play Thena. Other actors include Salma Hayek, Kumail Nanjiani, Brian Tyree Henry, Lia McHugh, Lauren Ridloff, and Don Lee.
The Mandarin character was highly underplayed in Iron Man 3, but the real villain will finally surface in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. The eponymous character is played by the relative newcomer Simu Liu joined by the legendary Tony Leung and Awkwafina.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
Doctor Strange 2 will explore the multiverse as the first scary MCU movie. Scott Derrickson returns as director with plans of a “gothic, horror” tone for the sequel.
Interestingly, Elizabeth Olsen is part of the cast and according to Marvel, the events of WandaVision will be reflected in the movie.
‘What if…?’ is probably the most interesting title in the announcement. Westworld star Jeffrey Wright will take the role of the narrator of the celestial observer, ‘the Watcher’. The animated series will feature many of the actors we’ve come to know and love in hypothetical, fun scenarios.
Thor: Love and Thunder
This movie was the biggest announcement in the event and had all the fans surprised. Natalie Portman is reintroduced into the MCU and will playing the female Thor. Our lovable characters Thor (played by Chris Hemsworth) and Valkyrie (played by Tessa Thompson) are back and we can’t wait for 2021 already.
