Marvel Phase 4 Spoilers Reportedly Revealed By Private Facebook Accounts
Marvel is officially gearing up to start Phase 4 of the MCU and private Facebook accounts may have revealed which superheroes will kick things off. The president of Marvel, Kevin Feige, is expected to drop some major bombshells in this year’s Comic-Con International, and it looks like the studio is getting ahead of action by creating social media accounts for each of its franchises.
Private Facebook accounts reveal Phase 4 spoilers
There are two projects in the works for Phase 4 of the MCU. Filming for Black Widow is currently underway while production for The Eternals is expected to begin later this year. According to CBR, both of these projects have private Facebook accounts that are not currently viewable on the public end.
Having a Facebook presence is not surprising for Marvel, though Black Widow and The Eternals are not the only two franchises that have their own pages.
There is evidence that three other rumored projects have private accounts on Facebook, including Dark Avengers, Ironheart, and Young Avengers. Marvel has not confirmed that any of these projects are coming down the pipeline, though sources claim that the studio has already started developing storylines for them.
If that is true, then fans could expect to see these films premiere anytime between 2021 and 2022, as Black Widow and The Eternals are expected to open in 2020.
Is Dark Avengers coming soon?
This is not the first time we have heard news about the Dark Avengers project. A few months ago, inside sources claimed that Marvel had already completed a script for the movie. The studio has not released any casting or director news, so it is difficult to tell where they are in the process. Hopefully, Feige will reveal more about the project in San Diego or at least confirm that it is in the works.
As far as Young Avengers is concerned, hardly anything has been revealed about the project. Inside sources claim that the film is in development, though nothing solid has been ironed out. Lastly, Ironheart has been rumored to be under development for years. The character is very new to Marvel, so it is unclear when or if the studio wants to introduce her to the MCU.
There is also the possibility that Young Avengers and Ironheart gets adapted to television instead of the big screens, especially since Disney is already moving some properties to its new streaming service.
What other Marvel projects are in development?
Feige and his creative team are scheduled to appear in Hall H at Comic-Con in San Diego later this month. Marvel is expected to reveal some big news during the panel, including which movies are next in the pipeline. Apart from Black Widow and The Eternals, there are a few other rumored projects in the works.
One franchise that is fully expected to be announced at Comic-Con is Shang-Chi, which was originally supposed to be released in Phase 1. Director Destin Daniel Cretton is believed to be helming the film, which could be out sometime in 2021.
There are also a number of different sequels that will likely be released over the next few years. This includes Black Panther 2 and Doctor Strange 2. There are also reports that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will start filming soon, along with Captain Marvel 2. Exact timelines, of course, have yet to be revealed.
Marvel set to launch Disney+ shows
In addition to the MCU, Marvel is launching several TV shows on Disney+ in coming years. Tom Hiddleston is expected to reprise his role as Loki for a standalone series, while Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany will appear in Wanda Vision.
Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie are also rumored to be working on a show called Falcon and Winter Soldier, while Jeremy Renner might be reprising his role for a Hawkeye show. Marvel has not officially confirmed any of these projects, though more information is expected to be revealed at Comic-Con.
San Diego Comic-Con is scheduled to host Marvel’s highly anticipated panel on July 20 inside Hall H.
