We just got a big bang in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. During its panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, Marvel Studios laid out several new movies coming in Phase 4, starting with Black Widow on May 1, 2020, and including several other movies and TV series to build fan’s hype.
Panel-goers got a close look at Black Widow, the first standalone film for the Avengers character played by Scarlett Johansson. That movie is a prequel, filling in the backstory of the former Agent of SHIELD and Russian spy. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige filled fans in on the movie’s cast, and there was even a trailer that ran during the panel. Fans also heard about other movies coming in 2020, including The Eternals and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and new information about previously announced series Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Loki.
