The horizon is wide open for the MCU following the world-breaking finale that was Avengers: Endgame. With that film out of the way and the Phase 3 conclusion that is Spider-Man: Far From Home coming in less than two months, Kevin Feige and his creative at Marvel Studios can now focus on the MCU’s next batch of upcoming films. Films that they’re finally going to announce this summer, so says Disney CEO Bob Iger.
**Disney CEO Bob Iger hinted during the studio’s quarterly earnings call Wednesday that Marvel Studios will likely unveil the next slate of films from its cinematic superhero universe at some point this summer. Iger declined to give specifics about what masked heroes will be in the spotlight for the next phase of Marvel films, though he said “Avengers: Endgame” provided some clues regarding what the future of the comic book empire will look like. “There are huge opportunities,” Iger said of the possible sequels, spinoffs and standalone superhero films to come. “There are many many different directions that we can go.”
Iger’s comments go hand in hand with Kevin’s from last February in which he said no upcoming film announcements would be made until their last film of 2019 was released which is Spider-Man: Far From Home. There’s no specific date on when these films will be unveiled but SDCC this July and D23 this August are possible options. The upcoming slate could also be announced via the infamous 2014 Marvel event where Kevin Feige revealed the entire Phase 3 slate in a day, an event that he now regrets due to how it took away some buzz from Avengers: Age of Ultron.
