Honestly I am just as pumped up for the new Marvel MCU Phase 4 as I was for the previous 3 phases, as Marvel dropped some big news at Comic-Con we have a release schedule and see how the Disney+ Marvel Shows are more tied to the MCU than the Netflix series ever were and even more so than Agents of Shield was. We get the massive announcement that Mahershala Ali will take on the mantle of Blade which was portrayed by Wesley Snipes in the previous films and will be a tough sell to those loyal to Wesley’s portrayal. Will Marvel get the tone and R rating that should be proper for Blade right?
In the end of 2021, we get Thor: Love and Thunder with Taika Waititi returning as director, and confirming Jane Foster will become Lady Thor and will still be played by Natalie Portman. Perhaps the most exciting for me is the announcement of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness with Benedict Cumberbatch reprising his role as Dr. Strange and Elizabeth Olsen returning as Scarlet Witch. This movie is supposed to be taking a more horror direction too which has me even more excited as Dr. Strange is capable of fighting the most deadly and formidable monsters and demons in the multiverse.
