A new leak seems to reveal every film Marvel will released over the next decade.
As well as listing the films Marvel will apparently release as part of its fourth phase, Wardell also makes some big claims about the series as a whole.
He says that, going forward, the series will present “mini-arcs” as opposed to a decade-spanning saga and that there will be a clear divided between the characters based on Earth and those based on other planets.
If Wardell is to be trusted, the recurring villain for the former will be Norman Osborn, who is expected to be introduced in Spider-Man: Far From Home.
So, the films – according to Wardell, Marvel is developing Black Widow, The Eternals, Black Panther 2, Shang-Chi, Doctor Strange 2, Nova and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3. He adds that there are plans to make new Thor, Ant-Man and Captain Marvel sequels and suggests there could even be New Avengers, Young Avengers and Dark Avengers films.
Most interesting is the appearance of Nova. He is a member of the intergalactic police force known as the Nova Corps and, in the comics, has had dealings with the Guardians, Captain Marvel and Thor.
The leak claims that a very unexpected Black Panther cast member will return for the sequel.
The leak also claims that Black Widow will star Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, who will be introduced as the new version of Scarlett Johansson’s character while Richard Madden will take the lead role of Ikaris in Chloé Zhao’s The Eternals.
We won’t know any of this for certain until San Diego Comic Con where Marvel president Kevin Feige will no doubt unveil the studio’s slate of films that’ll be released well into the 2020s. It takes place 18-21 July.
