It was a blessed day for Marvel fans.
On Saturday, the studio held its much-anticipated Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con, where it revealed major plans for MCU's phase 4. Studio boss Kevin Feige kicked off the event by announcing Avengers: Endgame—the final film of the franchise—was on track to become the highest-grossing movie of all time, surpassing James Cameron's 2009 film Avatar.
Feige then provided details about The Eternals, the Chloé Zhao-directed film starring Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Brian Tyree Henry, and Kumail Nanjiani. The Marvel president told the audience that the movie would deliver something "entirely new and entirely different." Zhao told the audience that it's "about this group about immortals but we will learn about humanity." Jolie also made an appearance. "I'm going to work 10 times harder" than regular action movies, she said. "The fans deserve it." Eternals hits theaters November 6 of next year.
Next, it was announced that The Falcon and The Winter Soldier will stream on Disney+ next fall, and will follow Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan's characters post-Endgame. "We have the job everyone else would kill to have," Mackie said.
The release date for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings was also announced. It will hit theaters on Feb 12, 2021, and Simu Liu will play the titular hero, while Tony Leung will star as the real Mandarin. Awkwafina also stars. Director Destin Daniel Cretton teased that the film will somehow be linked to Iron Man 3.
Next up was the announcement of WandaVision, which will begin streaming on Disney+ in Spring 2021. Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany will reprise their roles as Scarlet Witch and Vision. "It's gonna get weird," Olsen said.
Loki will also begin streaming on Disney+ in Spring 2021, and will chronicle the adventures of Tom Hiddleston's anti-hero post-Endgame.
