SDCC: Marvel confirms Black Panther 2, Captain Marvel 2, GOTG 3

Marvel Studios panel at San Diego Comic-Con officially announced that sequels to some of their biggest films: Black Panther 2, Captain Marvel 2, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

Speaking briefly with MTV’s Josh Horowitz after the Marvel Studios panel, Kevin Feige said they actually considered announcing even more than the 11 projects that will make up Phase 4: “We debated what we should announce today. Should we announce 4 and 5? We’ve planned them out, we’ve got five years down the road and I was like, I think eleven projects in two years is plenty, having not mentioned anything for two or three years.”

Fans may be surprised that these films won’t arrive until 2022, but the slate is very full. Additionally, there should be NO SURPRISE by the news of these films.

PHASE 5 FILMS

James Gunn confirmed ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 3’ for 2020 last year before getting fired over disgusting tweets from his pre-Disney time and then taking the job with Warner Bros to take over the The Suicide Squad film project.

The entire cast is set to return with fans uncertain what to make of Thor being with the Guardians at the end of Endgame.

Guardians features Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax (Dave Bautista), Rocket (Bradley Cooper), Groot (Vin Diesel), Nebula (Karen Gillan) and Mantis (Pom Klementieff).

It’s noteworthy that the 2022 release date is just hypothetical at this point, so stay tuned.

BLACK PANTHER 2

Chadwick Boseman’s performance as T’Challa in 2018’s Black Panther elevated the expectations for director Ryan Coogler and his amazing cast.

Black Panther also starred Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, and Andy Serkis.

There is no word or rumors about the plot of Panther 2, but everyone expects Wakanda to be making a global impact and opening the door up to a bigger threat.

In March of last year, it was expected that the sequel would be fast tracked and set for 2021 and here are the remarks about the follow up.

“I think it depends. It depends on what happens with big corporate deals, it depends on how we’re feeling as a studio to grow. We always intended to just do two a year until we got to a natural place where it felt like not doing three meant we were holding things back or preventing work from being done. Totally comfortable with three a year, which we’ve been doing for a few years now. If it ever gets to four, it would only be for very good reasons.”

Feige then had to discuss the ongoing success of Black Panther, still #5 at the box office and the impact on the plans for Black Panther 2.

“The success of Panther is so amazing and makes us so happy for so many reasons and it certainly exceeded our lofty expectations but our expectations were always lofty so we had built a plan, not the least of which was centering so much of Infinity War in those locations and with some of those characters that it just says let’s say this plan. It would have been much more disruptive if it had not worked. Then we would have had to change a lot of what we were thinking about. But it really just solidifies and excites us to continue to move forward in the directions we’re heading in.”

The first film open in February so a repeat in 2022 could be a good for Marvel to kick off a big, big year.

Captain Marvel 2

Brie Larson will be back as the character is clearly central to the MCU moving forward. The story of Skrulls and her ties to the Kree seem to be clearly projecting upcoming film plots and story ideas.

Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck directed the film which brought in $1.12 billion worldwide, so expect them to be back.

The post-credit scene Spider-Man: Far From Home points to more Skrulls, so a Super Skrull story would be interesting as a clear Skrull-Kree War could be the big “culmination film” as the Avengers were during the Infinity Saga.
