Marvel’s big Hall H panel at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con seems like the gift that doesn’t stop giving. There’s been news about their complete phase 4 line up, complete with release dates until 2021. We’ve also got details on each project, like Valkyrie being the MCU’s first LGBTQ+ hero. It turns out, there were also some announcements made for Disney’s newly acquired franchises, Fantastic 4 and the X-Men.
Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige casually dropped the bomb about these new projects towards the end of the panel. He wrapped up the discussion by mentioning the projects which weren’t explored but were definitely in store for audiences. Feige concluded with:
There’s a lot of other stuff we didn’t get the chance to talk about today. We didn’t even get to mention that we’re making Black Panther 2.We didn’t mention Guardians of the Galaxy 3[is coming]. We didn’t have time to talk about Captain Marvel 2.I didn’t even have time to talk about the Fantastic Four. And there’s no time left to talk about mutants. But you know what, all that stuff’s been rumored. You’ve heard the rumors.
So we can expect these movies to come further down the line, perhaps in Marvel’s phase 5. While no details have been announced regarding either Fantastic 4 or X-Men it’s great to at least get confirmation that we’ll finally see these superheroes all exist in the same universe — something we’ve been waiting for for a very long time now.
How do you think Fantastic 4 and the X-Men can be brought into the MCU?
