New suit of Spider Man in SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME

Coming out on July 2 this year, Spider-Man: Far From Home technically belongs to the Phase Three timeline. However, since it occurs after Avengers: Endgame, we are going to put it here. As we can see from the trailer, Peter Parker is back on track. This time, he will travel far from New York to Europe. The introduction of Mysterio, played by Jake Gyllenhaal, with his mysterious control over the four Elementals also raises doubt about this character: Is he a friend or an enemy?

Black Widow
One last chance for Black Widow

After Avengers: Endgame, it’s very likely that the fans will still have the chance to see Black Widow in the big screen since, for long, Marvel has been hinting at a movie for this female Avenger (although this might probably the last time for this Avenger on big screen). Rumor has it that the film, starring Scarlett Johansson as the lead role, will center on Natasha Romanoff before joining SHIELD or probably some of her first missions (maybe we can finally know what happened in Budapest). There is yet to have an official release date; however, the filming is set to start in June 2019, so 2020 will be the earliest to expect.

New Breed Earth 616 New Eternals Apocalypse Now Vo
The Eternals will be a total fresh breath for MCU

In the Marvel universe, the Eternals are super-powered and immortal beings developed differently from the early human. The Eternals are mentioned a lot in human mythology, which is similar to the Asgardians. For example, the Eternal Sersi was the inspiration of the Greek tale of Circe.

No sooner had rumors of a Marvel movie for the Eternals started in 2018 than Chloe Zhao was chosen to become the director in September. The film is rumored to concentrate on a romantic story between the Eternal Sersi (reportedly casting Angelina Jolie) and the Eternal Ikaris (with the rumor actor to be Kumail Nanjiani). Beginning to film in August 2019, the movie is expected to be released in 2020 as earliest.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 3 Rocket And Star Lord
More fun and tears

The fate of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 remained unknown after its director, James Gunn, was fire because his controversial tweets were brought to light by a group of conservative people. While James Gunn quickly got the position of director in DC, Marvel made no move in finding the next director for its movie – when the involving cast still confirmed that there would be vol. 3. However, the project was once again back to run on March when Marvel decided to rehire the old director.

There is a likelihood that this sequel will be a journey searching for Gamora, because, in the last scene of Avengers: Endgame, we have seen Peter Quill staring at Gamora’s hologram, looking for a sign of her in the galaxy. The audience is also expecting to the appearance of the God of Thunder as he joined the Guardians after the battle against Thanos (well, unless Quill decided to kick him out for threatening his authority).
