What Marvel Has to Offer?
Currently, there are many rumoured projects in Marvel’s kitty. The studio also needs to update fans about the upcoming projects like WandaVision, Loki, The Eternals and more. The whole phase 5 line up needs to be addressed.
More than ever fans are waiting for Kevin Feige to turn up and give us an any insight about the upcoming MCU projects.
Addressing the Rumours
In the past two weeks while the studios are shut and remote work is taking place many new superhero names have turned up. Now with SDCC 2020, we can expect some announcements and clarity from Marvel.
We NEED an answer to this major fan fantasy. The rumour is doing the rounds since very long now. Marvel enthusiasts long speculated of the addition of Johny Cash to the MCU and recently, Keanu Reeves is the actor being associated with it.
It is also rumoured that Marvel Studio is now taking pitches for an Ironheart series. The Cinema Spot report adds the absence of showrunner for the project yet.
Similarly, another report suggests that a secret show is in making featuring Secret Warriors group. However, it’s not certain that it’ll be a movie or a television series.
Furthermore, Captain Marvel 2 setting up New Avengers is also rumoured. According to Kevin Feige, Captain Marvel is supposed to lead MCU forward. Hence whoever will get the change to direct Captain Marvel 2 will also get to direct New Avengers as well.
With so many superhero thrown in the mix it’s certain that we need a confirmation of what’s to come or not.
The Upcoming Slate
Not just addressing the rumours but there is a lot about upcoming things that marvel needs to disclose. First up a Black Widow appearance is a MUST! Since fans have missed May 4th release a peek into the origin story is necessary.
Then the WandaVision Disney Plus series trailer/teaser needs to drop. Apparently, show’s VFX and production are finished and work has reached the editing stage.
A teaser or trailer of The Winter Soldier and The Falcon is also expected. The show’s production stalled due to the coronavirus lockdown in Prague. Same for Loki series, nothing is known about this one by far apart from some leaked set photos.
And as mentioned before the whole phase 5 needs an update on movies like Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 or Ant-Man and the Wasp 2.
