Speaking after the announcement, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told PA: "He's a huge fan of these films and a huge fan of that character and it just made flawless sense". Marvel's huge superhero blockbuster wasn't just the sequel to Avengers: Infinity War, complete with the eagerly awaited response to the snap heard around the movie-loving world, but marked the penultimate film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe's third phase.
It's not a true confirmation of another Avengers crossover, but it's something to dream about. The premise features what would have happened if things turned out differently during major events in Marvel history. One of the bombshells was Oscar-winning actor Mahershala Ali playing the lead role in a Blade reboot.
Set to debut on Disney + in the fall of 2020 The Falcon and The Winter Soldier will bring back Anthony Mackie (The Falcon) and Sebastian Stan (The Winter Solider) together in this series to fight evil. Expect this film in theaters November 5th, 2021.
"Hawkeye" launches on Disney+ in the fall of 2021.
The actors set to play as 35,000-year-old aliens include Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek, Richard Madden, Brian Tyree Henry, Kumail Nanjiani, Lauren Ridloff and Don Lee, reported Variety. Ali has also played in countless other roles in movies like Hidden Figures, Alita: Battle Angel and most recently in the third season of HBO's drama series True Detective.
"Thor: Love and Thunder" is definitely something we can not possibly wait for any longer, and will be featuring Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, and Natalie Portman. The film will be directed by Destin Daniel Cretton and written by Dave Callaham.
Angelina Jolie has officially joined the Marvel universe and she looked like a goddess while making her entrance at Comic Con. Perhaps the biggest shock was the return of Natalie Portman as FEMALE Thor.
Feige surprised the audience with the first footage from "Black Widow", which is now in production.
"I'm thrilled, thank you so much", she said, closing her statement.
Feige left us wanting more, and more there was!
