Of course, these shows are only a fraction of what Marvel has planned for its Phase 4 roadmap. No release date was announced for the upcoming flick.
But here's the thing: since it's a Sony property, it's not for Marvel Studios to announce a Spider-Man movie. Jolie looked glamorous as she took to the stage in a one-shouldered black dress and classic black court shoes with a pointed toe.
With the recent partnership with Sony on Spider-Man and the Walt Disney Co.'s acquisition of Fox, all the missing pieces (including X-Men, Deadpool and The Fantastic Four) are coming together too under the Marvel Studios banner. The Eternals are superpowered human beings who were created by The Celestials and have several powers at their disposal including but not limited to flight, superhuman strength and mindreading.
With D23, Disney's own pop culture convention, just around the corner on August 23 through the 25th in Anaheim, California, we can certainly expect to hear more very, very soon. The Celestials were mentioned in The Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 1&2 when the Guardians visit Knowhere. "We've all read the script and we know what the task is, so we are going to work very, very hard".
Scarlett Johansson raved over fellow actress Angelina Jolie following the announcement that she is set to join the Marvel Universe! Angie, 44, wore her hair back in a tight high volume pony tail, allowing her gorgeous face to shine. Not only that but her character, Jane, will be taking on the Female Thor role from the Might Thor comic storyline. It is definitely worthwhile.
We'll also see the sequel to the Cumberbatch actioner, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Ali takes over for Wesley Snipes in an update of Blade.
In an unanticipated surprise for all, Kevin Feige then announced the confirmed casting of Simu Liu in the title role of Shang-Chi and both the actor and the director, Destin Daniel Cretton, came on stage to greet the audience. And the crowd went wild. Feige also introduced two-time Oscar victor Mahershala Ali as the next Blade. He is one of the best actors of his generation so yah...bring it on!
