Marvel Studios Will Announce Most Of Its Phase 4 Slate After AVENGERS: ENDGAME, But Won't Reveal Everything

While it's common knowledge that Marvel Studios intends on announcing its Phase 4 slate after both Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home, it appears they don't have plans to reveal everything...

Following yesterday's Black Widow update, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has also shared some promising details about The MCU's mysterious Phase 4 slate and when the blockbuster studio may finally be ready to give fans all the juicy details they desire. 

In his informative chat with our pals over at ComicBook during the Captain Marvel press junket, Feige reaffirmed that they'll reveal everything we need to know about Phase 4 after both Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home have been released in theaters.

"As we've been doing for years, we aren't going to announce anything post Avengers: Endgame or Spider-Man [Far From Home] until post-Endgame and Spider-Man. As you know as a fan, there's a tremendous amount of potential and a tremendous amount of additional characters and storylines and groups of characters that we're going to keep playing with. And again, that's a testament to Marvel and to the amount of storylines and characters and amazing, amazing runs that have been in the Marvel comics."

However, when pressed about the imminent arrival of the X-Men and Fantastic Four and whether their addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe could lead to more than three films a year, Feige was a little more diplomatic and coyly replied, "We've always said there are no mandates to make any more than two films a year, but, as we've seen the last couple years, when it naturally happens, and when there are ideas and when there are teams ready to go, we're not going to hold something back."

He also tells them fans should expect a wide variety of films in Phase 4, including standalone features, team-ups, and all-out ensembles, which suggests that we're about to meet a whole lot of new Marvel characters, and may also mean that we'll be getting a lot more Avengers films in the coming decade.

While all of the above is obviously very exciting, Feige does express caution and suggests they might not reveal the full Phase 4 slate, and may actually just unveil the first half of what's coming in the next half-decade or so. "I don't think we'll be announcing five or six years, but we know sort of where we want to head in the next five or six years." Considering all the changes to Phase 3 with films being added and deleted, this does seem like a smart move on their part. 

Phase 4 will officially begin this summer with Spider-Man: Far From Home and will then continue with a pair of films next year. No projects are official just yet, but films rumored to be a part of Phase 4 include Black Widow, Black Panther 2, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Doctor Strange 2, Shang-Chi, and the Eternals. New films based on the X-Men and Fantastic Four are rumored to be in the mix as well, but the status of those will have to wait until the Disney/Fox merger is official.
