Rumours were circulating on the media as to how the movie industry giant, Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) will hit the screen in the next two years, 2021-2022. Through the sudden death of Wakanda King, Chadwick Boseman, the Black Panther, many Marvel fans were looking forward to whether he would be recast or not. Here’s what Marvel has for us.
Marvel has confirmed that its first family have come home and the legacy of Black Panther will live on.
Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige closed off the Disney Investor Day event on Thursday (December 10) with some huge news for MCU TV and film.
From the movie perspective, Kevin Feige confirmed that they are officially working on “the Fantastic Four” movie, after buying back the rights as part of the 20th Century Fox deal.
Writer-director Ryan Coogler is now working on Black Panther 2 with confirmation from Kevin Feige that the late Chadwick Boseman’s character T’Challa will not be recast. Hope not a disappointment to Marvel fans.
The next chapter of “Captain Marvel” will feature Brie Larson who will join the newly-cast Ms Marvel actress Iman Vellani and the adult Monica Rambeau (WandaVision’s Teyonah Parris). The movie is expected to be released in late 2021.

Another confirmation had it that former Batman star Christian Bale will join the cast of Thor: Love and Thunder.
Going into Phase Four of the MCU, Marvel’s Black Widow is the next in line to reach cinemas in May 2021, and yes, Feige said a cinema release is still the plan. Marvel has set to release another three movies in the next year. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings arrives two months after Black Widow in July 2021 and Eternals follows in November.
Marvel’s year will be capped off in December 2021. We were alarmed that Disney and Sony will collaborate to bring us Spider-Man 3, where the hero Tom Holland will be joined with his pass Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield in a Multiverse-spanning adventure also featuring Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange.
