FANTASTIC FOUR Officially Announced By Marvel Studios; LUKE CAGE Star Mahershala Ali Is Playing BLADE!

FANTASTIC FOUR Officially Announced By Marvel Studios; LUKE CAGE Star Mahershala Ali Is Playing BLADE!

Shortly after revealing its 2020/2021 slate of movies, Marvel Studios ended its Hall H panel at Comic-Con with some bombshell announcements about the Fantastic Four, Blade, the X-Men, and more...

We've already told you about Marvel Studios' Phase 4 slate (find the details on that by clicking here) but right at the end of the panel, Kevin Feige had a few massive surprises left for fans. 

While he didn't reveal release dates, Feige confirmed that Black Panther 2, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, and Captain Marvel 2 are all also coming soon...along with the Fantastic Four and Blade! It seems Marvel's First Family is indeed a priority for the studio but the real shocker is that Luke Cage star Mahershala Ali is going to be playing the Vampire Hunter in the MCU!

As for the X-Men, Feige dropped a massive tease by saying that they "didn't have time to talk about mutants." Some seem to think he was confirming that the next movie featuring those characters will be called Mutants but that seems highly unlikely and recordings from this announcement should clear things up soon enough.

The real headline here, though, is that Blade is being rebooted and Marvel Studios has chosen an actor who is undeniably perfect for the role...while also confirming that those Marvel TV shows mean nothing. So much for them being set in the MCU, eh?

How do you guys feel about this blockbuster announcement?
