The Future of the MCU is promising, with marvel releasing names and dates for multiple of their upcoming projects for the next 5 years, projects including big names like Black Panther 2, Guardians of the Galaxy 3, and new characters coming to the universe such as The Eternals and fan favorites, Marvel’s first family, The Fantastic Four. All the coming films will be part of Marvel’s phase 4 and 5 projects to expand the Marvel Cinematic Universe to new lengths.
Black Panther 2
After the Tragic passing of Black Panther actor Chadwick Boseman, Marvel has come out and said that they will not be recasting the actor and instead of taking an alternate storyline in the second movie. It is believed by fans that Letitia Wright, the actress of Shuri, could be taking up the mantle of Black Panther. In the comics, after T’challa was assumed dead, his sister Shuri took up the mantle of Black Panther and she was very good as the Wakandan Superhero. Bringing this to the big screen would cause uproar in the marvel Geek community as Shuri was very cool in the first Black Panther and Avengers End Game, showing us what she can do already.
The Fantastic Four
Back in December 2020, Marvel’s head producer, Kevin Fiege, announced that Marvel’s first family will be getting their own solo film coming to the cinema in late 2023. Not much has been said on this movie as it is still in the works, but fans are already excited to see them on the big screen. No cast has been announced either but that is not stopping fans from creating their own fan castings. The Most common actors seen in these are John Krasinski and Emily Blunt to play couple of Reed Richards and Sue Storm. For Johnny Storm a couple of actors have been seen, them being the Australian Actor Dacre Montgomery or High School Musical star Zac Efron to play the Firey, Hothead. For The Thing/ Ben Grimm two of the most common factor I have seen is the Wrestler John Cena or Actor Terry Crews. However, none of these actors have been confirmed, hoping to get news on the movie sometime in the next year.
Multiple other projects have been announced; however, I cannot fit them in this article. A part 2 of this article will be made.
