Now that Avengers: Endgame is out and Spider-Man: Far From Home is coming, the internet cannot rest and bask in the glory. They always have to look forward. What can we suspect from Far From Home? Countless pieces about if Mysterio is truly a bad guy, or really a hero. Stop it. Many of you were wrong about the theories for Endgame, just stop trying to fill up blog space. So, we are focusing on actual information about Marvel’s Phase 4 slate.
Now, to be fair, there isn’t a whole lot that we know about it. However, I predicted that we probably won’t hear about Marvel’s Phase 4 until after Spider-Man: Far From Home. Not to mention Kevin Feige quipped that we won’t hear something until summer. Since that wasn’t good enough for most people, news flourished when Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger made a comment during Wednesday’s earning call that it would officially revealed “later this summer.”
Since Far From Home will hit theaters before July’s San Diego Comic-Con, they have no movies announced or on the runway for release this year. Much like last year, we only had Avengers: Infinity War and Ant-Man and the Wasp. In 2019, we had Captain Marvel, Endgame, and Spider-Man: Far From Home. According to Disney’s new release schedule, we won’t have another Marvel movie until May 2020.
If the announcement on Tuesday is any indication, Marvel’s Phase 4 will span only three years between 2020 through 2022. Having only 2 films in 2020, while three films will be released in 2021 and 2022.
Marvel/Disney hasn’t been doing huge presentations at SDCC over the last few years. In fact, they have been saving them for Disney’s own D23 conference, which usually happens a month after Comic-Con in August. We will have to check back in this August to see if I was right.
