One of the biggest announcements came after they announced all of Phase 4, but unveiled Blade with Mahershala Ali with no release date. Awkwafina (Crazy Rich Asians) is also starring in an unspecified role.

Scarlett Johansson will headline the Black Widow film, reprising her role as a spy and super-assassin from earlier Marvel films such as Captain America: Civil War (2016).

San Diego Comic-Con's Marvel Studios panel was nearly too much, with huge reveal after huge reveal about Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

"I'm so excited to be here", she told the large crowd at the famous Hall H panel at Comic-Con.

The only MCU movie now in production sees Scarlett Johansson's character finally get her own solo movie.

Much to the delight of fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a slew of new superhero movies are coming our way over the next few years.

"Marvel also revealed that newcomer Simu Liu will be playing the lead role in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings", directed by Destin Daniel Cretton and coming to theatres on February 12, 2021. The film, directed by Cate Shortland, will be released in May.

"WandaVision" premieres on Disney+ in the spring of 2021.

Marvel Studio's Top Movie Announcements From SDCC 2019
Spoiler alert: Wanda Maximoff ( Elizabeth Olsen ) and her ability to alter reality will also play an important role in this film. Following the aftermath of Endgame , Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan are sticking together as Falcon and The Winter Soldier .

Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness - May 7, 2021.

Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson, who alluded to her character identifying as LGBTQ, will also be returning for the Waititi-directed Thor: Love and Thunder, which is set for release on November 2, 2021.

In the aftermath of Marvel's presentation, studio president Feige revealed to IGN the reason why Avengers 5 wasn't announced at San Diego Comic-Con.

Marvel has been pretty busy with the Cinematic Universe (MCU) they've created, and while you might have thought they'd dial things back a bit after the epic Avengers: Endgame, you'd be wrong. We love that world.

We didn't learn about any new actors coming to Thor: Love and Thunder, but we did learn there's going to be a new Thor: Jane Foster, played once again by Natalie Portman.

For the first time, the Comic Con announcement blurred the lines between the movies and the TV shows, because Marvel are looking at the launch of Disney+ and are rebranding their shows not merely as TV shows but as "event TV series".

Director Chloe Zhao, who has wanted to make a movie for Marvel Studios for a long time now, says, "It's about this group of incredible immortals", but it's also about what it means to be human.

So far all we know about the forthcoming Blade reboot is that it is going to happen, and True Detective and Luke Cage star Ali is taking on the lead role.
