At the recent San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed plans for the next phase(s) of the Marvel Cinematic Universe… as well as what is to come to the new Disney+ streaming service. This week, we’ll break down everything that happened in Hall H, movie by movie and show by show, and also look at what this means for the future of the MCU and its characters, including Black Widow, The Eternals, Shang-Chi, Doctor Strange, Thor (and his Love and Thunder), Black Panther, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain Marvel, The Fantastic Four, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Hawkeye, and the interesting What If? series. We'll also speculate about “Phase 5” including Blade, Fantastic Four, X-Men and Mutants, Spider-Man, and how this may impact Marvel in the Disney Parks.
