A whole lot of superheroes were introduced before and not all of them got a trilogy. Most of the MCU’s superheroes were given three standalone movies and it continues to happen unless there are a few plan changes. Thor is getting a 4th movie, which is a bit amusing. being the highest-grossing movie franchise and also the making the highest-grossing movie, Marvel Studios is nowhere behind making history again with the new phase, introducing new superheroes who got high appreciations in the comic arena.

She is dead and yet she is getting a standalone movie. Natasha Romanoff is in the original 6 Avengers team. She was a badass from the beginning. Her past was is not explored yet, which the upcoming movie is going to dive into her history. The movie also stars David Harbour as the Red Guardian. Let me tell you what Marvel is doing. All the actors from hit Netflix shows are being pulled in to the MCU, which is seriously good for the franchise, David Harbour from Stranger Things makes me wait for the Black Widow movie even more. The other actors in the movie are Florence Pugh, O-T Fagbenle, and Rachel Weisz.
Thor: Love and Thunder
Releasing date: November 5, 2021
At first, I thought, they were joking about the name, but I was wrong, Love and Thunder it is. Let’s agree that the first two movies of Thor were not that great. Thor 1 and Thor: The Dark World didn’t turn out good. But when Taika Waitit came into the game and made a good movie out of the third, Thor: Ragnarok, the God of Thunder became a celebrated hero. With all this happening, Marvel thought of another movie of Chris Hemsworth in Thor 4, directed by the Taika Waitit again. We’ll see more of Korg for sure.
The surprising element is Natalie Portman will be back playing Jane Foster, who was missed in Thor: Ragnarok. It doesn’t end there, this time, she is reported to wield the hammer and become female Thor, how cool is that? Let’s not forget to mention Tessa Thompson, the new queen of the New Asgard, she will be back too.
Releasing date: Fall 2021
When Black Widow is getting a standalone appear, why not Hawkeye, Clint Barton would be upset otherwise. But the new thing with Hawkeye is that he is getting a Disney+ series, the whole game is changing after Disney acquired Marvel. After ruling the superhero movie market, Marvel is planning to hit the small screen industry, which didn’t work with Marvel before. Almost all Netflix series of Marvel are canceled. Keeping that in mind, Marvel Studios are planning for TV series from the same universe as the movies, making it a must-watch. Kate Bishop will be introduced in the original series, who is also good at archery.
Releasing date: Summer 2021
We know Marvel Cinematic Universe as the way it is, which will be changed completely in the Disney+ series. What If…? deals with different possibilities, where events happen differently and the outcome that will change the history. For example, what if, instead of Steve Rogers taking the Super-Soldier Serum, Peggy Carter took it. The whole idea of Captain America will change. Many actors from the movies will be back to give their voices in the is animation series. Marvel President Kevin Feige explained this on the Hall H stage,
All of those set in stone MCU scenes and experiences you’ve seen before, you will see different versions of them in this.
Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness
Releasing date: May 7, 2021
The name itself suggests that the movie is going to be crazy. Doctor Strange is the MVP of the victory against Thanos. He was the backbone and now with new threats coming and new supervillains emerging, the Sorcerer Supreme has to step up his act. Benedict Cumberbatch has a lot left to do in with Marvel Cinematic Universe. The amazing part about the movie is, Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch played by Elizabeth Olsen is joining to contribute her magic as well. This is what I will be thinking in my sleep for the rest of the days until the movie comes out, most hyped of all Upcoming Movies in MCU Phase 4. Scott Derrickson will direct the movie.
Releasing date: Spring 2021
Normally, villains don’t have a following, but Loki is a whole different story. Tom Hiddleston is coming back for this Disney+ original series, which according to me will deal with Loki in the reality where he vanished with Space Stone after the battle of New York as shown in Avengers: Endgame. What makes it more interesting is that, in the actual reality, Loki turns good after he was prisoned in Thor: The Dark World, but in this reality, he escaped even before he changed to a good person. The series will be miraculous if everything goes right.
Releasing date: Spring 2021
Vision is dead too, meaning the Disney+ series will be a prequel. Remember the time when Wanda taught Vision, how to cook? This series might go back to that time and turn out to be a cooking show, What say? Wanda lost her brother and Vision has no idea about his powers. WandaVision will be a romantic one starring Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, and Teyonah Parris.
Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings

The Lord is replaced by Legend, Lol. Shang-Chi is an Asian superhero. After making a landmark in Africa with Black Panther, Marvel is aiming to give Aisa a superhero to be relatable. Shang-Chi is called the Master of Kung-Fu. Bruce Lee would have suited best for the role of Shang-Chi, but his no more alive. The movie is featuring Simu Liu, Awkwafina and Tony Leung. All the Chinese looking actors are ready to take over their roles in the MCU. Destin Daniel Cretton who is also an Asian looking director will be a part of the movie.

All the rumors are true. Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, and Daniel Brühl are going to be in this original series, Streaming exclusively on Disney+.

Derek Kolstad, the creator of John Wick is writing the series, meaning there will be a lot of guns and action.
Releasing date: November 6, 2020
The most interesting part of Phase 4 and my favorite of all Upcoming Movies in MCU Phase 4. Huge budget movies need huge stardom, which is happening with the Eternals. Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Lauren Ridloff, Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek, Lia McHugh, and Don Lee are going to be a part of this epic movie. Just look at the names, these names are worldwide famous. Marvel is doing a god’s work here. The Eternals are a fictional human species who happen to be the defenders of earth from alien celestials. How are they going to be introduced in the MCU all of a sudden is a mystery. Eternals are created by Jack Kirby, which did not receive a good response through comics. But this idea somehow convinced the architects of Marvel Cinematic Universe to make a movie out of it.
What is to be expected from Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 4?
That’s about the Upcoming Movies in MCU Phase 4, but Black Panther’s sequel is missing, Ant-Man and The Wasp are nowhere to be mentioned, Guardians Of The Galaxy Volume 3 is absent and a lot more are not there in the next phase. Marvel needs to build a new team like the Avengers, they planned to introduce new characters instead of bringing back the old ones to the screens. The Eternals, Shang-Chi, and blade are the new face to the Marvel Universe and the old ones are still there figuring out a way to handle the blip. The Young Avengers or the New Avengers, whatever it’s going to be called will be set up in Phase 4.
