Marvel Phase Four Episode 1

The MCU Future: Episode 1

Reading time: 3 minutes

Welcome to a new series! As big Marvel fans we feel it’s our duty to keep you informed on Marvel Cinematic Universe news, predictions and opinions. We’re eager to tell you about our favourites, upcoming characters and more.

Over the past decade we’ve been treated with what has been an amazing journey across the MCU. And wow…have we seen some cinematic holiness. Marvel kicked off with Iron Man in Phase One in 2008, the movie being the first in what is called the ‘Infinity Saga’. Phase Two included blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy in 2014 and Phase Three showed us a strange kind of ‘doctor’ in 2016. The franchise succeeded in what no other had ever tryed; creating a cohesive CU, featuring multiple series, major crossovers, all while maintaining continuity. Over the course of 11 years an unbelievable 22 movies hit theaters, in which Marvel rewrote history with one of the biggest phenomenons in pop culture history. But to all good things come an end…. right?

Well, not quite! Although Marvel hasn’t officially announced their new movie phase, the franchise already confirmed multiple movies coming up over the next few years. These are the ones we’re most excited about.

Spider-man: Far From Home I July 5, 2019

Surprise! Far From Home isn’t actually the first Phase Four movie, but is set to be the true end of Phase Three. Jon Watts is back in the director’s seat, as suspected after his last success with Homecoming, and it’s been confirmed that Peter Parker’s story will pick up minutes after the end of Avengers: Endgame.

Parker will be assisted by MCU icon Nick Fury during a somewhat ‘troubled’ school trip in Europe. Marvel will be introducing a new character as well, Mysterio, played by Demolition actor Jake Gyllenhaal. And here’s where it gets good. Mysterio seems to be coming from another Earth. Yupp.. That’s right. Marvel just opened the multiverse doors! Check the trailer and find out what Peter’s vacation looks like.

Black Widow

She played supporting roles since her first appearance, but she’s one of the earliest Avengers members! Even after 9 movies there isn’t much to go on Natasha’s background. Fans have been waiting for a Black Widow movie for years now, and it looks like their questions will finally be answered in Marvel’s Phase Four. Will Scarlett be taking on the part in this origin-to-be, once again?

Release dates are unknown and will probably remain unknown for a while. The studio hired filmmaker Cate Shortland as director, who isn’t known for blockbuster movies (yet).

The Eternals

Expectations are high for this new installment, bringing a race of super beings to the CU, created by the alien Celestials. The beings, who lived on Earth and shaped its history and civilizations, evolved into powerful man and women. The Celestials intended the Eternals to be defenders of Earth and fight their destructive counterparts, the Deviants. Our well known purple friend Thanos was first created a member of the Eternals of Titan.

Writer/artist Jack Kirby first brought them to life with their first appareance in The Eternals #1 (July 1976) and Marvel Studios now hired Chloe Zhoa to make the movie. Angelina Jolie and Game of Thrones actor Richard Madden will be starring in The Eternals.

That’s it for episode 1! We’ll be back with more Phase Four  updates, speculations and predictions.

– A survival guide for newbies – Once upon a time, we weren’t nerdy. Really, we actually were the quarterback and the captain of the cheerleading squad. No science club for us but founding and perpetual members of the “smoking behind the school building” club. We did not spend our Saturday evenings painting Warhammer and had plenty of dates to choose for prom. But you know the ways of the Lord (of the rings) are mysterious and so fast forward 15 years and here we are, immersed in the world of video games with little practical knowledge but an enthusiasm as big as Jabba The Hutt´s appetite. Oh, the twists and turns of life… Anyways, this year we decided that who better than us, Jens and Paz, the least experienced..

The Arcade: First Contact. Haaaaave you met Lesley?

It’s a little family what we have going on here at The Arcade. And because we want you to get to know us better, we decided to feature our staff members in a series called “The Arcade: First Contact”. You already know we are no friends of conventionalisms, so we figured out what a better way to start this series than from the very bottom, meaning our last addition to the bunch.
