On April 26, 2019, Marvel will release “Avengers: Endgame” that will represent the third phase of the Marvel Universe. You’d think that all this superhero madness will end after Endgame, but Marvel has a lot of plans for the Marvel Universe.
Besides Spider-Man: Far From Home, which will be released in July of 2019, Marvel will release 8 movies between 2020 – 2022. Although we know the release dates, we don’t know their titles. Even so, we have an idea about what the future Marvel movies will be about.
Black Panther Sequel
The Black Panther movie grossed more than $1 billion at the box office, being the most successful movie of the year. It would have been a surprise for Marvel not do produce a sequel. Ryan Coogler, the director and writer of the first Black Panther movie already signed on to create the sequel.
Black Widow ( masterfully played by Scarlett Johansson ) was part of the Avengers team right from the start. The character first appeared on the big screen in 2010 in the Iron Man 2 movie, and since then she appeared in every Avengers movie, including Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War. It’s amazing that so far she hasn’t received a standalone movie but the good news is that Aussie producer Cate Shortland will most likely take care of the Black Widow movie, a movie that will tell us more about her past, from the time she was a spy for Russia.
Doctor Strange sequel
Movie director Chloe Zhao will direct this movie inspired by Jack Kirby’s comic books. A small preview was put on screen after the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. The movie will open new horizons which will also involve characters from Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain Marvel ( read an article about Carol Danvers / Captain Marvel ).
A third Guardians of the Galaxy movie
For quite some time now we knew that Guardians of the Galaxy will be a trilogy, but the fans have lost hope that the third one will be god after director James Gunn was fired by Disney ( the company that owns Marvel ), after some very old tweets made by Gunn have surfaced. James Gunn is now writing the second Suicide Squad movie and will also direct it. Disney decided to hire him again and a third Guardians of the Galaxy movie will come after the Suicide Squad sequel.
In the Marvel comic books, Shang-Chi is known as a kung-fu master. The Chang-Chi movie will be the first Marvel movie focused on an Asian superhero and the director will be Destin Daniel Cretton.
