No one can rock Hall H quite like Marvel can.

The most anticipated panel of the weekend was definitely the Marvel Studios Hall H extraordinaire.

We got a whole lot of information thrown at us in an hour and a half so let’s just get right into it.

The first thing Kevin Feige announced to the crowd was The Eternals, which will come out on November 6, 2020.

The film will be directed by Chloé Zhao and will star Angelina Jolie as Thena, Richard Madden as Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Salma Hayek as Ajak, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Don Lee as Gilgamesh, Lia McHugh as Sprite, and Lauren Ridloff as Makkari.

Next up we got some new information about The Falcon and the Winter Soldier that will be an original series on Disney+ that will be out in the fall of 2020.

Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie will reprise their roles as Falcon and Winter Soldier and the series will give us a better look at both characters and it will also be bringing back Daniel Brühl as Baron Zemo as its villain.

Judging by Mackie and Stan’s chemistry, this series is going to be a whole lot of fun.

Feige then announced Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, which will be directed by Destin Daniel Cretton and will be released on February 12, 2021.

The film will star Simu Liu as Shang-Chi, Tony Leung as the actual Mandarin and Awkwafina in a currently unknown role.

The Ten Rings has actually been hinted at through the entirety of the Infinity Saga and we will now finally see it on the big screen.

WandaVision was the next thing that was announced at the panel. It will start streaming on Disney+ in the spring of 2020.

The show will not only feature Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany in their roles, but also Teyonah Parris who is playing a grown up Monica Rambeau.

It was made very, very clear to us that this show is going to be real weird and something we haven’t really seen before from Marvel.

After WandaVision another Disney+ show was announced. A very anticipated one if I do say so myself… Loki. 

This original series will air in the spring of 2021 with Tom Hiddleston.

The series will take us on Loki’s adventures after Endgame when he manages to escape.

We’re getting another Doctor Strange movie and this time it is going to be more on the horror side of things. Scott Derrickson will be back to direct Benedict Cumberbatch who will also be joined by Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will come out May 7, 2021.

What If…? will be Marvel’s first animated series and it will be available on Disney+ in the summer of 2021. It was announced that Jeffrey Wright will voice the Watcher and that many of the actors in the MCU will return to voice their characters.

The next thing that was announced was another Disney+ series. This one about Hawkeye. The one thing that had many people screaming about this series (out in the fall of 2021) is the introduction of Kate Bishop.

The series will not only show Hawkeye’s mentorship of Bishop, but will also explore his time as Ronin.

Feige announced another film next which is Thor: Love and Thunder directed again by Taika Waititi, which will be released on November 5th of 2021. The film will, obviously, star Chris Hemsworth as Thor and will see Tessa Thompson come back as Valkyrie (who will be the MCU’s first LGBTQ+ hero).

The biggest announcement surrounding the fourth Thor film was that Natalie Portman will be rejoining the series as the female Thor.

I know, I know. I need this movie already too.

The official announcement finally came about the Black Widow movie. There had already been photos on set so we all pretty much knew this was happening but now we know for sure.

Black Widow will come out on May 1, 2020 and will star Scarlett Johansson, David Harbour, Florence Pugh, O-T Fagbenie, and Rachel Weisz.

The film will look at Natasha’s past and will help us understand her more as a character.

Feige then very nonchalantly mentioned all the movies they didn’t talk about including Black Panther 2, Captain Marvel 2, Guardians of the Galaxy 3, Fantastic Four, and Mutants. 

These had all, of course, been rumoured already so obviously they had to drop the ball on something big.

Pretty sure announcing Mahershala Ali in Blade knocked the entire room over.

Whenever Marvel shows up they never disappoint the crowd that’s for sure.
