Angelina Jolie confirmed her role in The Eternals.

First up, The Eternals slated to hit theaters November 6, 2020.

The upcoming project still has a long way to go before it hits theaters, as nearly all other details aside from Ali's casting are now under wraps, so there's still time for Marvel to make good on what they've done by incorporating Snipes into the new Blade movie.

Angelina Jolie arrives at the British Academy of Film and Television Awards (BAFTA) at the Royal Albert Hall in London, Britain, February 18, 2018. It's also where the studio introduced Brie Larson as Captain Marvel three years ago and brought the house down with the first look at Black Panther.

"We didn't have time to talk about Captain Marvel 2, and I didn't have time to talk about the Fantastic 4 and there's no time to talk about Mutants", he told a delighted crowd. A Blade reboot is coming into the MCU, and he's going to be played by Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali.

Directed by Destin Daniel Cretton, Simu Liu (Kim's Convenience) will star as the titular hero, and if the Ten Rings sounds familiar, that's because it's been teased since the first Iron Man movie.

Giant screens revealed a timeline of films and TV shows scheduled for the next two years, including new outings for popular characters Thor, Black Widow, Doctor Strange - which director Scott Derrickson described as "the first scary MCU movie" - and Loki. "We've all read the script and we know what the task is, so we are going to work very, very hard". She joins returning stars Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson in Taika Waititi's Thor: Love and Thunder.

Here's a full list of what we can expect from MCU phase four, so far.

Scarlett Johansson is returning as the lead, with David Harbour (Stranger Things) as Russia's Red Guardian, Florence Pugh (Midsommar) as Yelena, Rachel Weisz (The Mummy) as Melina, and O.T. Fagbenle (Handmaid's Tale) as Mason.
