Kevin Feige (President of Marvel Studios) isn’t relaxing over the success of Infinity War. He has already geared up the studio for the future, Yes that’s right, Marvel Studios has reportedly started shooting for a Phase 4 movie of the MCU next year around June in UK!
The future of Marvel after Captain Marvel and Avengers 4 is a big mystery. Even the studios has been coy about the Phase 4. But now the things have been finally set into motion for the Phase 4.
A new report from GWW indicates that Marvel is looking to shoot in the United Kingdom beginning in June for a film they have yet to announce! For Marvel to shoot a movie next year, they have only limited options namely – The Eternals, Black Widow, and Doctor Strange 2. The dilemma after James Gunn was laid off as the director of Guardians of Galaxy Vol. 3 has left studios no option but to stall it’s shooting most probably.
But the remaining three movies have a good chance for their shoot to start, let’s discuss the three movies and their probability to be the first movie to release in Phase 4.
The leading contender will obviously be Doctor Strange 2, after the rumours of Benedict Cumberbatch’s pay increase its highly likely that studios will go in for the sequel of our master of the mystic arts. But the studios has yet to announce the director or the screenwriter for the film. Considering the success of the first movie, it’s highly likely that Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill could return.
The next possible film can be Black Widow! The long wait for our first female Avenger was long due and now given that director Cate Shortland has already been announced. Scarlett Johansson is obviously locked in for the film. And given the Black Widow’s past to be a Russian assassin and spy, the location for the shoot matches perfectly.
The Eternals take the last spot because they are relatively new in the news and rushing in immaturely would make the franchisee lose its lustre in the long run. So, it’s off the Marvel list most probably.
Kevin Feige has been keeping wraps on the future of the MCU. Talking about the new characters and difficulty in having so many popular characters he said, “”Sometimes it’s where do those characters pop up? [Doctor] Strange, you know, whenever we do another Strange [movie], which we will do, it will be a number of years from the first Strange, and yet he’s a very big part of Infinity War,” Feige said to Cinema Blend. “So it is just a good problem to have when you have too many beloved characters that people want to see more of, whilst keeping to our core belief that we need to keep exploring nuance and keep doing different types of things.”
But, it’s a matter of time when we learn about the future plans of the MCU in near future. So, what do you think about the new film? Which one will you want to see? Do let us know in the comment section below!
