When Spider-Man: Far From Home hit theaters in July 2019, it did so as the last film in Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) - and at a time when fans of the franchise had no idea what was coming next. With no announcement about what movies were scheduled after Endgame, audiences were left wondering about the future of the MCU - until Marvel Studios answered their questions at San Diego Comic-Con 2019.
There, in front of a crowded Hall H full of screaming fans, Kevin Feige and a host of superstars revealed the first half of the MCU’s Phase 4 slate. The announcement was full of surprises, unexpected returns, and long-awaited debuts, including the Black Widow solo film. The Marvel Cinematic Universe will continue to march on for the next few years much as it has for the past decade, but with enough new content and characters to make the experience just as fresh and exciting as it did the first time.
The Avengers may be gone, but with Phase 4’s lineup of films and television series, it’s unlikely that fans will stop assembling anytime soon.
