WandaVision – 13 January 2021
WandaVision positively surprised the fans, who only complained about the short size of the episodes and the anxiety of having to wait a week to see the next chapter.
With an aesthetic that mixed the style of several television series from different decades, the program introduced us to the world that Wanda created for deal with the trauma of Vision’s death. Just like in the comics, the heroine creates a world around her, which includes even her twin sons, Tommy and Billy (who in the comics become the heroes Wiccan and Célere).
Meanwhile, the Sword organization was trying to invade the site and dominate Wanda, something that three characters already known to the public try to prevent. Darcy (Thor), Jimmy Woo (ex-Shield agent) and Monica Rambeau (seen as a child in Captain Marvel) come together to try to help Wanda stop what she is doing, but also to protect her from others.
The series also introduced us to the iconic villain (anti-heroine in the comics) Agatha Harkness and items like the book Darkhold, an element that promises to be important in the future of the MCU. As promised, the plot showed us how Wanda became the Scarlet Witch and, of course, left several questions and hooks for the next studio productions, including possible links to the film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness , and the series Ms. Marvel and Secret Invasion. Ah, each episode cost U $ 25 million, with the series budget totaling $ 64 million.
Check it out all information about the series, the doubts he left, the characters he presented, the revelations he made and how the series influenced the MCU at the link below about the end of WandaVision .

Hawk and Winter Soldier – 17 March
With action scenes compared by critics to Captain America: The Winter Soldier , the Falcon and Winter Soldier plot takes place 6 months after the events of Avengers: Ultimatum , and shows how Bucky Barnes and Sam Wilson, who were absent for 5 years after being wiped out, face current challenges.
series brought two main antagonists. The first of them was the group of rebels known as Stateless, a movement that went against the actions of several world governments to expel immigrants after the return of half the population of the earth, with the actions of the Avengers in, Avengers: Endgame. The group, however, is violent and goes to great lengths to achieve its goals.
The second obstacle is John Walker (Wyatt Russell), a former military man who is chosen by the government American as new Captain America. The character was introduced in the comics as American Agent , in 1980. Initially a villain who imitated Captain America, he ends up redeeming himself for his mistakes and in fact becoming the new version of the hero. In the series, Walker also found redemption for his mistakes and ended up assuming the title of American Agent, accepting to work for Countess Valentina (check out more about Madame Hydra in the links below)!
Other characters already who have returned to the series. Daniel Brühl returns to give life to the villain Baron Zemo once again. Responsible for creating the conflict in Captain America: Civil War, the character continues to be against the existence of the super soldier’s serum, which is why he agrees to help Bucky and Sam in the confrontation against stateless people. Emily VanCamp once again plays the character who lived in Captain America: The Winter Soldier , Sharon Carter, Agent Carter’s granddaughter.
The character even led a turnaround, in which it was revealed that she was the Merchant of Power, the antagonist responsible for giving the super soldier’s serum to the Stateless. Back in his post in the US government, Sharon has plans to sell secrets, weapons and other things by acting as a double agent.
The turnaround, however, provoked a theory: Sharon could be a Skrull in disguise. With a series already confirmed in the future in the MCU, the arc Secret Invasion tells the story of the invasion of the skrull alien race, with thousands of them posing as humans, including important characters and heroes of the Marvel stories. In the comics, even the character Countess Valentina is one of the first infiltrated skrulls discovered by Nick Fury.
In this context, we still see Bucky facing his personal monsters, with the weight of guilt for the acts he committed when he was under Hydra’s domain. But it is Sam who sets the tone for the plot by bringing the conflict he goes through, as a black man, to take on the mantle of Captain America. The theme of racism, as well as xenophobia, is debated in several scenes.
The direction was signed by Kari Skogland, director who has productions such as The Handmaid’s Tale , Penny Dreadful and Vikings .
The series featured the Patriot
For those who do not know, the grandson of the iconic Isaiah Bradley, Elijah Bradley, will in future assume the heroic identity of Patriot. Although presented in brief scenes in the series, the character’s arrival at the MCU confirms the presentation of the Young Avengers, a group formed by Wiccano and Célere (Tommy and Billy, children of Wanda, presented in WandaVision )), Ms. Marvel, Stature (Cassie Lang, daughter of Ant-Man), Kate Bishop (Gaviã Arqueira, will be featured in the series Hawkeye ) , America Chavez (who should win his own series) and a young Loki.

Loki – June 2021
What happened to Loki after the events of Avengers: Endgame? What the Loki of 1982 – still a villain – did it with Tesseract? Where did he go? Will he go on that timeline or find a way to go to the MCU’s main timeline? These and other questions must be answered in the character’s solo series, according to Marvel Studios.
In an interview with the Forever Dogs podcast, the showrunner of the series, Michael Waldron, revealed that Loki will go through an identity crisis. And, apparently, he did not refer to the different forms that the character can take.
According to Waldron, Loki will reflect on the path he wants to take in the plot, that of good or evil. For the showrunner, during his trajectory in the Saga do Infinito , he had no control over important parts of his life, something that will be different now, giving him even more chances to choices about the person you want to be.
What TVA means and the connection with Doctor Strange 2
The acronym refers to the Time Variance Authority. This organization was presented at HQ Thor # 372 and is responsible for monitoring the multiverse and “Fix” the timelines if their existence represents a risk.
So, yes, the Loki series is directly related to the Doctor plot Strange in the Multiverse of Madness – information already announced by Kevin Feige himself, president of Marvel Studios – and consequently to that of WandaVision , since the Scarlet Witch is also confirmed in the wizard’s second film.
Rumor has it that Marvel Studios was in seeking to cast a British actor who was around ten years old, which led to the theory that we can see Loki child in the series (it would be him in his child version and 1: 56 from the trailer above?). If this is confirmed, it is possible that the arc in which Loki dies and is reborn as a child is approached in the program.
In this arc, Loki is born as a boy named Serrure, in Paris. With no memory of his past life and cruel actions, he has his magical powers reduced to almost nothing. The only evidence he has of his dark past are nightmares in which he found himself doing terrible things.
Upon discovering where Loki is, Thor takes him to Asgard, and holds out hopes of that the brother can grow differently. The young Loki, however, is gradually discovering information about his past. The child version of the character, however, can be approached in a different way, adapted to the other events of the MCU so far, as happened with several events in WandaVision . From what the trailer indicates, for example, Loki will meet Thor and Heimdall in their adult version.
It seems that there are chances that we will see more than one new version of Loki in the series. In November 2019, the Deadline website stated that actress Sophia Di Martino ( Yesterday ) would have been cast to live in Loki. The casting of the actress has already been confirmed, although her role remains confidential.
In the comics, Loki not only has the capacity to metamorphose as he wishes, but he has already assumed one female identity when taking Sif’s body for himself. In addition to Martino, Owen Wilson ( Marley and Me ) is also part of the cast of the series.
First transgender character from MCU
According to the website The Illuminerdi, Marvel Studios plans to present Sera in Loki, which would make history as MCU’s first transgender character. Sera first appeared in the comics at 2015, in edition Angela: Asgard’s Assassin # 1 .
She is of the anchorite race, a kind of rare men who were born Angels of Heven, but without wings. Therefore, they were destined to spend their lives in a temple praying for angels who died without souls. When the temple is attacked by a monster, Sera, who identified herself as a woman, is saved by Angela, Thor’s sister.
The Illuminerdi website also stated have gotten more information about the casting call. If confirmed, the details about the characters reveal the comedy tone that the series must have and the strong connection between Marvel-Disney + productions and MCU films.
- Male Role – No age specified. Big name. With a sense of humor. This role will have options for series and film. Role for 5 or 6 episodes.
- Female Role – Enter 30 and 50 years old. Open to all ethnicities. Role for six episodes.

- John – Male character. Open to all ethnicities. In between 27 and 36 years old. An unreliable combat soldier looking for revenge. Presumptuous and mysterious. A supporting role for 4 episodes.
The series will have 6 episodes of approximately 1 hour each. Michael Waldron, producer of Rick and Morty, will serve as executive producer, lead writer and showrunner on the show. The direction of the episodes will be signed by Kate Herron ( Sex Education ).

Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings – September 3 2021
The MCU’s first Asian superhero promises to hit theaters with everything! The plot will introduce us to the martial arts master Shang-Chi. Considered the greatest martial artist in the world, he grew up with his Kung Fu training as a main hobby in a lonely childhood.
Without knowing his mother’s identity, he was raised by his father, Dr. Fu Manchu, an ambitious and evil man whose intentions his son was unaware of. On a mission, he finds his father’s nemesis, Sir. Denis Nayland Smith, who ends up opening his eyes to who Fu Manchu really is.
Several villains (including Mandarin!)
Yes, we will see a new version of Mandarin ! But there are rumors that indicate that he will not be the only villain of Shang-Chi . In October 2019, the MCU Cosmic Universe website published that sources linked to Marvel Studios would have guaranteed that the kung-fu master can also face the Ghost Creator, the Steel Claw, the Mobile Shadow and the Fist of Razor. However, these other names have not been confirmed.
Relationship with other heroes
So that we can imagine how Shang -Chi will join the MCU and the possible teams of heroes that should form in the future of this cinematic universe, just remember that the character has already made important connections in the comics.
At the HQ Heroes for Hire , from 2007, Shang-Chi fought alongside Misty Knight’s Iron Fist and Luke Cage for sa lvar Colleen Wing. Although we do not know when and if these characters will be adapted to the screens again after the end of the agreement between Marvel and Netflix, there is one more interaction of the hero important to highlight: Shang -Chi belonged to the Avengers !
The hero has already joined the team of the Secret Avengers and, after the events from the bow Avengers vs. X-Men , became part of the original Avengers, at the invitation of Captain America.
In April 2020, Marvel announced the launch of a new Shang-Chi comic book miniseries for June. With script by Gene Luen Yang ( The American Chinese, New Super-Man ), the five editions will bring more modern adventures of the character created in 1973. And one of the novelties is a new costume, as you can see in the image above.
In a photo shared by Director Destin Daniel Cretton ( Temporary 12, The Glass Castle ) at April 2020, we saw for the first time the cast of the film gathered in the sets of recordings. Starring in the feature are: Simu Liu, as Shang-Chi; Golden Globe winner Awkwafina, on undisclosed paper; and Tony Leung, living the real Mandarin. In addition to them, practically the entire cast will be formed by Asian actors and actresses, as well as the entire creative team.

What If…? – 3rd quarter of 2021
What If…? will be an animated series that will bring to the screens the bizarre stories of the comic series of the same name. The plot of the episodes show hypothetical events that could have completely changed the course of the heroes of the MCU.
To give you an idea, some of the comic editions are: What if Spider-Man had joined the Fantastic Four? , What if the Avengers never existed? , What if Captain America had not disappeared during World War II? , What if Doctor Strange was a disciple of Dormammu? , What if Spider-Man had never become a crime fighter? , What if Uncle Ben of Spider-Man had lived? , What if Loki found Thor’s hammer? , among others.
Which stories will be adapted
The only information released by Kevin Feige himself, in the last SDCC, is that the first season of the series will explore a little bit of the plot and characters of each of the 23 films from the Saga of Infinity . Even the animated versions of the heroes will be voiced by the actors themselves who brought them to life in the cinema. The series will also feature Jeffrey Wright ( Westworld ), who will give voice to the Watcher, narrator of the episodes.
But we got a little preview of the series with a piece that was leaked on the internet. In the scenes, we see Peggy Carter as Captain Britain next to Steve Rogers, Bucky Barnes facing a zombie version of Captain America, and T’Challa as Lord of the Stars.
After the leak of a conceptual image of Iron Man, it is also believed that the hero could replace Thor on Sakaar, a planet under the command of the Grand Master, played by Jeff Goldblum. Goldblum even spoke in an interview with Buzzfeed about recording his talk for What If…? , and revealed that Iron Man is in the episode, which strengthens the theory .
Eternal – November 5 2021
Considered one of the most ambitious projects of the MCU, the most important film of Phase 4 will introduce us to the emblematic Eternals, one of the three new races created by the genetic experiments of the celestial cosmic beings. After a visit to Earth, these superpowered extraterrestrial beings experimented with the most developed species on the planet.
The results were the Eternal , who have a physical appearance similar to that of humans, but are superpowerful and practically immortal; the Deviants , superpowered beings, aggressive and of unstable genetics; and ordinary humans.
The film should explain the origin of the Eternals and reveal why this race has remained hidden on Earth for so long. The official synopsis also revealed that “an unexpected tragedy”, after the events of Avengers: Ultimatum , will force them out of the shadows to face the Deviants.
The stellar cast
The Eternals will probably feature the heaviest cast ever seen in a Marvel production – with the exception of Avengers: Endgame , but we’re talking about a new story and not the gathering of so many characters in a timeline of 11 years old. According to the descriptions of the official synopsis:
- Angelina Jolie will bring the fierce warrior Thena to life
- Kit Harington will be Dane Whitman, the Black Knight
- Richard Madden will be the almighty Ikaris
- Gemma Chan will live the lover of humanity Sersi
- Kumail Nanjiani will play the cosmically powerful Kingo
- Lauren Ridloff lives the super-fast Makkari
- Brian Tyree will play the smart inventor Phastos
- Salma Hayek will be the wise and spiritual leader Ajak
- Lia McHugh lives will the eternally young and ancient soul Sprite
- Don Lee will play the mighty Gilgamesh
- Barry Keoghan will be the distant and lonely Druig
Chloé Zhao was in charge of the direction.
Photos leaked from the film sets
The possible great villain
In addition to fighting the Deviants as a whole, apparently the Eternals will need face the supremacy of a particular debtor: Kro . Information leaked by the Funko Pop collectible line revealed that the character is in the film, although his presence and the actor who will play him have not been disclosed.
Leader of the Devious in the comics, Kro has the ability to change the shape of his body, having already passed himself off as the Devil, to terrify humans. One of the first deviants to be created, he is immortal and is known for his thirst for death and evil. But in a few moments, that changed: while maintaining a relationship with the eternal Thena. For more information on the relationship of the two (which actually resulted in children!), Check out the link below about Thena.
Movie will have MCU’s first gay kiss
The proposal for more diversity in the MCU can now be seen more prominently in Os Eternos . The film will feature the first LGBTQ + couple from the Marvel films. In an interview with the website Logo, in February, actor Hazz Sleiman revealed that he will play the husband of super hero Phastos, who will be played by Brian Tyree Henry.
“We represent a gay family that has a child. ”
The actor also confirmed, when asked if the film would include a scene of a kiss between the couple.
“Yes, absolutely , and it is a beautiful and very emotional kiss. Everyone cried on the set. For me, it is very important to show how a loving and beautiful gay family can be. ”
Representativeness is also present in the decision to change the gender of some of the Eternals, whose background was predominantly male , but, for the film, it won more women among its main members. In addition, Phase 4 is certainly the one with the most directors at the head of the studio’s productions.

Spider-Man: No Way Home – 14 December 2021
Spider-Man: No Way Home was one of the productions, in principle, not included in Phase 4 of the MCU. With changes in production dates and premieres, however, the film will hit theaters before other features featured in the Marvel schedule at SDCC.
Little (almost nothing, at truth) is known about the plot of the third film of the Tom Holland scholar. Since the end and the resumption of the partnership between Marvel and Sony, it is speculated that the film may finally present the encounter between the hero and the acclaimed villain Venom. In addition, Peter must deal with the consequences of what happened in Spider-Man: Far from Home , when Mysterio exposed his true identity to the world.
What is already confirmed and theories
Although Marvel and Tom Holland himself continue to deny the possibility of an Spider-Man with the encounter between Holland’s Spider-Men, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, that encounter between the three is still one of the most popular theories about the film. And what is already confirmed about the feature only strengthens this.
Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) is confirmed in the third feature film, which also confirms the relationship between the plot of this production and the second film by Steve Strange , as well as that of the Loki and WandaVision series. And what connects these films and series: the multiverse approach. But there’s more!
It has been confirmed that Spider-Man: No Way Home will feature Alfred Molina’s return to the role of the villainous Doctor Octopus (from the Tobey Maguire franchise), and Jamie Foxx to live again the villain Electro (from the Andrew Garfield franchise).

Ms. Marvel – End of 2021
With the production and recordings of Ms. Marvel still being realized, details about the series are still very few. Young actress Iman Vellani was chosen to play Marvel’s first Muslim heroine, Kamala Khan. Due to the few images and videos that have already been released from the set, the series must follow the HQ Nada Normal, Graphic Novel in which the girl gains her powers.
So far, the which was also confirmed was the presence of both Ms. Marvel and Monica Rambeau in Captain Marvel 2 , whose title will be The Marvels, given the connection that Kamala and Carol develop in the comics, with the young woman having the heroine as an idol.
The beginning of the Young Avengers?
It is also worth remembering that Marvel seems to be presenting the characters that one day may form a version filmmaking of the Young Avengers: Wiccano and Célere (Tommy and Billy, sons of Wanda), Ms. Marvel, Stature (Cassie Lang, daughter of Ant-Man), Kate Bishop (Gaviã Arqueira, who will be presented in the series Hawkeye ), America Chavez (who should win his own series), Elijah Bradley (Patriot, featured in the series Falcão and the Winter Soldier ) and, who knows, a young Loki.

Hawkeye – End of 2021
Closing – at least for now – the series whose characters never won a movie own in the MCU, we have Gavião Arqueiro . But the episodes will not focus on just one Hawkeye, but on two! The show will feature Kate Bishop, to be played by Hailee Steinfeld.
A profound admiration for Gavião Arqueiro, a great trauma of the past and a willingness to help people made the young Kate Bishop start training archery and eventually start trying to save those in need. some help.
As the girl started to get involved in different problems, Clint Barton ended up deciding to train her. In the comics, Kate is the third character and the first woman to assume the identity of Hawkeye, or Gaviã Arqueira.
Which HQ will the series be based on
According to Jeremy Conrad, from MCU Cosmic, the program will be based on the acclaimed new comic series by Matt Fraction and David Aja, by 2013 – including references to the costumes, with Barton wearing the black shirt with the purple symbol, as in the image above.
In the stories created by Fraction, the focus is more in Clint Barton than in his heroic version as Hawkeye. In the edition Who by the arch Lives , we know Barton’s routine when he is not integrating the Avengers, in his day-to-day life in Brooklyn, dealing with neighbors and tenants, but also with the Russian mafia.
And yes, in this series of comics we also have Kate Bishop , in a phase in which the young woman left behind her wealthy family and went to work as a heroine for hire. Other characters that stand out are the hero’s dog, Lucky; Clint’s brother, the evil Trickshot; and the villain Madame Mask.

Doctor Strange: In the Multiverse of Madness – 25 March 2022
If you have checked the information of all the productions above, you know that this film will have a great importance for this phase of the MCU. With direct links to the series WandaVision, Loki and Spider-Man: No way Home, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will explore alternative realities. This, in fact, can make us revisit some characters that no longer exist in the main MCU timeline.
The little we know so far about the feature is that it will have horror movie touches . Furthermore, it was recently announced that Sam Raimi (trilogy Man- (Aranha original) assumed the direction of the project.
Who we could review
Here, fans bet on all the characters that we will no longer follow in the MCU, such as Iron Man and Captain America. However, there is one of them whose return seems to make a lot of sense: Mercury .
With Mercury’s premature death in Avengers: Age of Ultron , we had apparently missed the opportunity to see big scenes between him and his sister, Wanda (including the M Dynasty!). With the participation of the Scarlet Witch already confirmed in the second film of Doctor Strange, it would not be a big surprise that the two ended up bringing Mercury from another timeline.
Want more information curious that it may or may not be related to this theory? Actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson, who played Mercury in the MCU, was seen on the recording sets of Avengers: Ultimatum . Did they have plans for him to appear and cut the scene? But if they had these plans before, did Marvel give up on bringing the hero back or just decided to wait a little longer?
More than one villain
Marvel Studios has confirmed that the villain of Doctor Strange’s second movie will be Nightmare , the leader of the Dimension of Dreams. Able to cause nightmares in human minds, the villain feeds on the fear it causes. Manipulating dimensions and forms of energies and controlling the emotions of his opponents is also among his powers.
But there are rumors that he may not be the only villain in the feature. The fearsome sorceress Agatha Harkness, presented in WandaVision , and the abominable Shuma-Gorath can also join the team of antagonists. While Shuma-Gorath is known as the “personification of evil in the entire Multiverse”, Agatha Harkness is an extremely powerful witch who, like Doctor Strange, was one of the people who helped the Scarlet Witch to control and expand her powers.
Another possibility is the dangerous Chthon. One of the most famous villains in the Doctor Strange universe, in the comic books one of the sources of Wanda’s powers was the spell that the dark wizard cast on her, providing her with the ability to create psionic projections that can manipulate probabilities and alter reality. With the presence of Wanda in the film, it is easy to see how this villain could appear.
There is also the theory that Scarlet Witch might be the big bad guy in the movie. It is worth remembering that, in the comics, after losing Vision and her children, the heroine collapses and becomes a great threat to everyone. His powers are sufficient to defeat the Avengers, being stopped only by Doctor Strange.

Thor: Love and Thunder – 6 May 2022
Little is known, so far, about the plot of the fourth film of the god of thunder, but in an interview with The Philadelphia Inquirer, on the day 19 April, protagonist Chris Hemsworth said that Taika Waititi’s script is even more wild and strange than that of Thor: Ragnarok . Waititi, even, returns to the direction of the feature. In the interview, Hemsworth was only praise for the filmmaker:
“It’s one of the best scripts I’ve read in years. It is Taika at its extreme and at its best. If the version I read is the one we will record, it will be pretty insane. ”
The arrival of the Powerful Thor
The Mighty Thor was introduced in the comics at 2012, in the series signed by Jason Aa Ron, a cartoonist known for addressing what makes a god worthy. In the plot, Thor once again loses his rights to Mjölnir, and Jane Foster decides to take the hammer to help.
What makes her worthy of Mjölnir? In addition to her work to save lives as a doctor, Jane is facing advanced breast cancer. Whenever she takes her form as Mighty Thor, the symptoms of her illness disappear; but when she returns to her human form, the effects of her treatment have been delayed.
Still, she continues to risk her life to save others, even reaching a level of control from Mjölnir that Thor never achieved, which will enable the heroine to unleash abilities from the hammer that we haven’t seen in the movies yet.
Christian Bale will bring the villain to life
Yes, none other than the brilliant Christian Bale ( The Dark Knight, Ford vs. Ferrari ) will play the main villain of Thor: Love and Thunder .
Bale will live Gorr, also known as the Butcher of the Gods. The character was featured in the comics at 2013, and it is revealed that he hunts the Thunder God in three different timelines: in the past, when Thor was young and immature; in the present; and in the future, when Odin’s son is the lonely Bitter King. Gorr seeks revenge on the gods, for they have abandoned their planet in extreme misery.
In the comics, Thor’s attempts to combat the villain’s violence is one of the main factors that make the hero unworthy of using Mjölnir. That’s when the hammer searches for Jane Foster and turns her into the Mighty Thor.
Character LGBTQ +
Yes, Thor: Love and Thunder too will feature a gay character. In fact, it counts! But now your sexuality will no longer be hidden. We are talking about Valkyrie. Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, has ensured that the sexual orientation of the character of Tessa Thompson will be addressed in the fourth feature of the franchise.
According to the Illuminerdi page, the Marvel would still be in search of a young black actor, with 11 or 12 years, to play a new character called Zappa . As there are no records of the character in the comics, of course there are already theories about who he can be.
The first bet that the boy could be Kid Loki, the child version of the god of cheating that can be featured in the solo anti-hero series. The second believes that the young man could be Heimdall’s reincarnation.
Relationship with X-Men
Yes, since Marvel regained the rights to the X-Men, virtually every upcoming film and series are involved in theories and speculation about which one can start introducing the mutants into the MCU. But why not several of them?
And director and screenwriter Taika Waititi confirmed a link that will exist between Thor: Love and Thunder and the X-Men: the presence of Space Sharks . This alien race was introduced in 1982, in HQ Uncanny X-Men # 56 , but later appeared in titles like Thor: God of Thunder and King Thor .
The Space sharks are giant alien creatures that float through space. In the comics, they were captured and enhanced by Litter, an enemy race of the X-Men.

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever – July 8 2020
Black Panther 2 was another one of the productions that initially were not foreseen for Phase 4 of the MCU. With the new dates announced by Marvel, the film won its opening day. Very little is known, so far, about the plot, especially after the death of actor Chadwick Boseman, who gave life to the hero. But there are already several theories about the film.
Will we see Shuri as Black Panther?
There in 2018, when the Black Panther made its thunderous debut in theaters worldwide, Marvel released the book Marvel’s Black Panther: The Art of the Movie ( Marvel’s Black Panther: The Art of Film , with free conceptual art). One of them drew attention: Shuri in the Black Panther uniform . Since the scene hasn’t been in the first film since, fans have wondered if we’ll see T’Challa’s sister become the Black Panther in a sequel.
In the comics , Shuri takes on the hero’s cloak and becomes the first female Black Panther, after T’Challa stays in a coma, a consequence of a battle against the villains of Doctor Destino’s group. With her brother unable to rule and protect Wakanda, Shuri is named queen and undergoes several tests to become the Black Panther.
Like Black Panther, Shuri manages to save Wakanda from the villain Morlun and even put an end to T’Challa’s coma. The warrior and scientist remained in power while her brother recovered, and one of the challenges he had to face during this period was a war against Atlantis under the command of Namor .
Namor comes by Ouch?
It is not today that fans make theories and speculations around the presentation of Namor in the MCU. But this time, we have another factor in favor of this possibility: an easter egg in Avengers: Ultimatum .
During the scene in which the Black Widow speaks to several allies around the world, we see a hologram of Okoye, general of Wakanda, reporting tremors in the ocean . Since then, fans have theorized that the speech made a reference to Marvel’s King of Atlantis. And this theory was practically confirmed by the writers of Ultimatum .
At the end of April 2018, in a joint online exhibition to celebrate one year since the release of Avengers: Ultimat o, screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely were asked about the alleged easter egg of Namor. Markus replied:
“Sometimes, you plant seeds. Sometimes they grow. ”
Just to remind you, Namor is a mutant , OK! The character even has a comic book series with the title Namor – The First Mutant .
We can see Killmonger again
In January 2019, during the SAG Awards, Angela Basset’s husband, Courtney B. Vance, suggested that we might see Killmonger again. After the interpreter of T’Challa’s mother was asked by the ET website about the possibility of the entire cast returning to the sequel, Vance replied:
“Yes, just go ahead and say, yes ! Everyone will be there, including Michael B. . ”
But then, how could we see the character, who quickly got into favor with the fans? After all, he died, correct? On that occasion, Basset completed her husband’s speech.
“Technically, we didn’t see him being thrown into the ocean, no.”
Possible new villain
In June 2015, Roger Wardell, known for leaking information from the geek universe that has already proven to be real, spoke in an interview with The Independent that T’Challa’s next opponent will be Queen Divine Justice .
The character, called Ce’Athauna Asira Davin, is a princess of the Jabari tribe, but was raised in the United States without being aware of her true origin and heritage. After her father is killed by extremists, she is rescued by T’Chaka and grows up in Wakanda, becoming one of the faithful Dora Milaje.
A political conflict forms , however, when she discovers her true lineage. After all, as heir to the Jabari throne, she is also a legal representative to the Wakanda government.

The Marvels – November 2020
Previously scheduled to be released after Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and Blade , Capit Marvel 2 was another production that received a new position in the MCU’s release order after the reorganization of the premiere dates. It remains to be seen whether the film will close Phase 4 or start Phase 5.
And whether you think that, because it is the last confirmed premiere, so far, we would have little information about the film, that’s where you make a mistake. The film will be supervised by Kevin Feige and its script will be signed by Megan McDonnell, who also worked on the first season of the web series WandaVision . But there’s more!
When is the new movie set?
One of the biggest doubts that existed about the film was in what period it must happen. Will the plot bring Carol Danvers after the events of Avengers: Ultimatum ? Or will it show more of the heroine’s past by helping those in need in space? With the debut of WandaVision and, mainly, with the mid-credits scene from the final episode of the series, apparently we already have this answer: in the present!
The scene in question shows a Skrull who was disguised as a human revealing herself to Monica Rambeau and stating that she is being requested in space by someone she knows. Remember that the character has already been confirmed in Captain Marvel 2. In addition, some of his scenes in WandaVision suggested that she holds a grudge against Carol, a subject that should be taken up in the film. We are likely to see them fighting together, now that Monica has already gained her powers.
Ms. Marvel is coming
Ms. Marvel is coming! Brie Larson had already stated in some interviews that she would like to see Kamala Khan in the film. And the presence of the young heroine in the film has already been confirmed.
Marvel’s first Muslim heroine, the young Kamala idolized Captain Marvel and was even featured in issue # (14 from Captain Marvel , at 2013, but won its own comic series afterwards from that. Not only have the two fought side by side, but Carol has given Kamala her blessing under the name Ms. Marvel.
Since then, young Ms. Marvel has fallen in love with the Marvel fans, which is why the announcement of a series on Disney + was very well received. For this reason and because the heroine is also part of an important group of comic book heroes: The New Avengers!
Captain Marvel 2 can introduce the New Avengers
With the new dates, everything suggests that Captain Marvel 2 will now end the Phase 4 from the MCU, which didn’t include any Avengers movies . The fan theory is that the feature will introduce the group, before an official announcement of Avengers 5 for the next phase of the MCU.
It is worth remembering that Ms. Marvel was part of some of the group’s formations, which also had Sam Wilson’s Captain America, Nova, Visão, Spider-Man (Miles Morales), Daredevil , Fantastic Four, Winter Soldier, Luke Cage and Wolverine. But there is still other evidence of the likely introduction of the New Avengers.
In November 2019, a video allegedly of an audition for Ms. Marvel leaked on the Internet . The candidate for Kamala Khan reads a text that cites the New Avengers and the Inhumans. The young woman goes to someone who identifies herself as “Captain”, explains that she saw the New Avengers and that one of her relatives is an inhuman. It is worth mentioning, however, that Marvel has not confirmed the veracity of this video.
Mutants in Captain Marvel 2 ?
Yes, Captain Marvel 2 may be one of the productions that will introduce the mutants to the MCU. According to a publication that the Superhero Buzz channel made in April 2020, the sequence can count on the presence of Rogue .
The mutant would be presented as a villain leader of a mutant terrorist group. In case you are wondering this version of the character, it is important to highlight: this is the origin of Rogue in the comics!
In the comics, the mutant is a villain trained by Mystique to end with the X-Men. And do you know when she joins Charles Xavier’s group? After absorbing the powers and Carol Danvers’ psyche! While Rogue begins her journey as a heroine, Captain Marvel ends up in a coma. The information has not yet been confirmed by Marvel.
