Geekville Radio #240: Marvel Phase Four Announced

Geekville Radio #240: Marvel Phase Four Announced

A little later than expected, but Seth and Train are back to talk the Marvel Phase Four announcements from this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.

We speculated in our last episode on what Marvel might be doing for Phase Four of the Cinematic Universe. After a bunch of reveals at San Diego Comic-Con, we now have the full lineup for the next two years.

It is worth noting that only films slated for 2020 and 2021 were announced. There were no definite indications of theatrical releases for 2022. The possibilities of Black Panther 2, Captain Marvel 2, and Avengers 5 are still very strong.

For each of the announced movies or series, we’ll give our main speculation points and pair them up with what was confirmed during the Hall H presentation.

4:45 – Black Widow (May 1, 2020)

Speculation: Florence Pugh will play Yelena Belova/Crimson Widow. David Harbour will be Taskmaster. This may introduce a cloned Natasha like in the comics

Confirmed: Pugh will be Yelena Belova, David Harbour will be Alexi Shostakov aka Red Guardian, the Russian equivalent of Captain America.

New Speculation: Yelena Belova may be Taskmaster instead of Crimson Widow

15:45 – The Eternals (November 6th, 2020)

Speculation: Millie Bobby Brown and Angelina Jolie would be the same character. Thanos and Adam Warlock would be involved in some capacity.

Confirmed: Several roles were announced, none of which were Thanos or Warlock. It will take place on Earth, and Kevin Feige described it as “full-on Jack Kirby“.

New Speculation: Nobody will care that Ajak and Makkari have been gender-swapped.

30:45 – Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (February 12, 2021)

Speculation: Shang-Chi will fill the void Danny Rand/Iron Fist fills in the comics as the martial-arts expert. If this is an attempt to get a Bruce Lee vibe, it will fail to do so

Confirmed: Mandarin is the villain

Further Speculation: Since the Ten Rings were teased way back in the first Iron Man, this may take place over a period of time. There could be an explanation as to why Ben Kingsley played an imposter Mandarin.

39:50 – Falcon and the Winter Soldier (Fall, 2020)

Speculation: The show will be standalone and not directly tied to the rest of the MCU, and Baron Zemo will be the villain

Confirmed: Will not be standalone, and will be part of Phase Four. Baron Zemo is the villain and will have the mask.

42:00 – WandaVision (Spring 2021)

Speculation: Will take place before Vision’s death in Infinity War.

Confirmed: Takes place in current time, so maybe Captain America was able to revive Vision in his post-Endgame quest. Monica Rambeau is in the show, perhaps to become a new Captain Marvel or Miss Marvel.

New Speculation: Will tie in with Dr. Strange 2

45:10 – Loki (Spring 2021)

Speculation: Possible origin story or another story from the past. Loki’s escape during Endgame could play a factor.

Confirmed: Takes place after Loki’s escape in Avengers: Endgame. This will be the classic evil Loki and not the sympathetic character he became in Phase Three.

50:45 – Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (May 7, 2021)

Speculation: Dr. Strange will be one of the focal points of the MCU on par with how Iron Man was for the first three phases.

Confirmed: Scarlet Witch will be in the film, so it may tie in with the WandaVision series.

55:10 – Thor: Love and Thunder (Nov 5th, 2021)

Speculation: Could be directly related to Guardians of the Galaxy 3 given the styles of directors James Gunn and Taiki Watiti. Plus Thor left with the Guardians to close out Endgame.

Confirmed: Natalie Portman will be reprising Jane Foster and will become Thor.

Current Speculation: Thor himself will be a supporting role, and it could still tie into Guardians 3

1:01:05 – Hawkeye (Fall 2021)

Speculation: Clint is back to adventuring now that his family is safe. We may see Kate Bishop.

Confirmed: Kate Bishop will be major part of the show

1:04:00 – Blade (Phase Five?)

Maharshala Ali was a surprise announcement as the MCU Blade. It was not stated whether this will be a feature film or a Disney+ mini-series.

1:13:00 – X-Men and Deadpool (Phase Five?)

Marvel did not outright say any immediate future of the X-Men franchise, including Deadpool. But it seems like X-Men may wait a few years and get rebranded for Phase Five.
