After a long hiatus due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the wait for fresh MCU content is almost over. On Friday, Marvel Studios’ debut Disney+ series WandaVision will release with the two-part premiere.
In addition to shows like WandaVision, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Loki releasing on Disney’s streaming service, we’ll also see the delayed theatrical releases of Black Widow, Shang-Chi and Eternals before the end of the year.
During December’s Disney Investor Day presentation, Kevin Feige provided an update on a number of shows, as well as announcing new MCU series such as Secret Invasion, Armor Wars and Ironheart. There was also the official announcement that a Fantastic Four movie is in development.
With the future of the MCU revealed up until 2023, Collider asked Feige how far ahead Marvel Studios are planning its movies and TV shows. The reply from Marvel Studios’ president can be seen below:
That would mean that Marvel Studios has the future of the MCU mapped out until around 2029!
Marvel Studios has already shown that those plans are flexible. It has previously been revealed that the events of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame were being put together back in 2014. That’s when fans were first being introduced to The Guardians of the Galaxy! Back then, the idea of introducing comic favourites like the Fantastic Four and the X-Men or even mentioning the word “mutant” was firmly off the table. Thankfully, Disney’s acquisition of Fox means that they will likely be a cornerstone of the MCU in the near future.
We’re already hearing rumours of future shows and movies centred around characters such as Starfox, Nova and Ghost Rider. Whatever it is that Marvel Studios are planning, it’s going to be an exciting next decade for the MCU.
