Black Widow - starring Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh - is the first film of the phase that we will actually be able to watch, with a release date of 1 May 2020. It was pretty obvious that the sequel would happen after the first movie wound up being a big hit in the fall of 2016, but the project was confirmed last December when the company made a deal with director Scott Derrickson to take the helm of the follow-up. And though Mysterio may have been lying about his origins in Spider-Man: Far From Home, we are still diving deep into one of the weirdest tropes of comic book lore in Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness.

Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness will fight villains from across the multiverse.

It was revealed Saturday at Comic-Con that Benedict Cumberbatch will don the Cloak of Levitation for the sequel Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness, which will be once again directed by Scott Derrickson. "I think he'll be in a position rather like the audience of not knowing what's coming at him".

The flick gets released May 7, 2021.

The British Government is expected to announce its next steps in a speech to parliament on Monday. Britain, however, claimed that Iran had captured not one but two ships in the Persian Gulf.

If Scarlet Witch is involved, we're probably looking at a situation where a Multiverse threat draws unusual into other dimensions to protect his own timeline, with Witch's magic proving invaluable on that mission.

Elizabeth Olsen will be joining Benedict Cumberbatch, as will Benedict Wong to reprise his role as Wong.

The Sorcerer Supreme has scored a sequel.

This movie will be directly tied to the upcoming Disney+ series WandaVision, which stars Olsen opposite Paul Bettany's Vision and debuts on the streaming service in Spring 2021.
