On December 10, 2020, a lot was announced during the Disney Investor’s Day. So much was announced that even if you sat with a pen and a pad, you would still miss out on something or the other. Kevin Feige, President of Marvel, went on an announcement spree where he could not stop himself. The big news got your attention we are sure of that, but something has slipped by and we are here to cover it for you. After a long, long drought without a drop of Marvel news, Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios dropped more bombs than a Stark industries Jericho missile – sparing only trailers for the upcoming movies as it was all-eyes on Disney+, with three trailers for the upcoming titles seemingly stealing the show early on.
Really subtle hints and teases were thrown at the public, with the intent of not being caught soon. First of all, on the heels of rumors of Charlie Cox playing Daredevil in Spider-Man 3, Feige might have teased Matt Murdock showing up in the MCU. She-Hulk, now confirmed to star Tatiana Maslaney along with Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk and Tim Roth’s Abomination (who we last saw over a decade ago in The Incredible Hulk), is going to follow Jennifer Walters as an attorney.
Kevin Feige pointed out that this professional, specifically specializing in superhero legal cases, means that anyone from the Marvel universe can pop up. It could also be a nod to one of Moon Knight’s alternate personalities like Jake Lockley, who can end up in court after something goes wrong in his taxi efforts. However, it could also mean she bumps in Matt Murdock in or around a courtroom. Wishful thinking? Maybe. Possible? Hard to say anything isn’t.
We also saw the Fantastic Four announcement where we heard Jon Watts (Spider-Man) is going to direct, but if you did not know, this was already teased in Far From Home. In a sequence where Spidey swings through Manhattan, there is a construction blockade around Avengers Tower – and it says “Wait for Til You See What’s Next” with a 1, a 2, and a 3, but the 4 is missing.
In Avengers: Endgame, the aged up post-snap Cassie Lang was played by Emma Fuhrmann after the younger version had been portrayed by Abby Ryder Fortson. Going forward, she will be portrayed by Kathryn Newton. Not only has Fuhrmann taken “Cassie Lang” out of her social media bios but she weighed in with a tweet that made it sound like she found out about this at the same time we did.
Feige also confirmed that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.3 is coming in 2023. Also, The Guardians will also appear in Thor: Love and Thunder, along with Jaimie Alexander who was confirmed to be in the cast outside of the event. Ironheart will connect to Armor Wars with Riri Williams and War Machine having stories together. WandaVision will lead straight into Spider-Man 3 and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Ms. Marvel will go from her series straight into Captain Marvel 2. A Secret Invasion story is on the way and who knows how many Avengers characters are going to appear in what could be the first big Marvel event show on Disney+.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will release its first episode on March 19, and it is the exact same day Sony releases its marvel movie Morbius into theatres, and it may or may not be tied to the MCU with Spider-Man being labeled in its trailer, not to mention Michael Keaton showing up as Adrian Toomes in his prison jumpsuit from the Homecoming post-credits scene.
And, finally, I leave you with an Easter egg for all the shippers – in the Ms. Marvel sizzle reel, Kamala Khan is seen wearing nothing other than a shirt showing Valkyrie and Captain Marvel together. Not only does this indicate the two have had more adventures together by the time Ms. Marvel is set, but it also gives hope to those fans hoping to see a Carol and Valkyrie shippy ship.
If your eye got a hold of any other little detail please send it our way. We still believe that there is something that neither you nor we are aware of it. But, too many announcements, right? the content drought has ended and Marvel is putting it all out! Let us know what you think about it in the comments!
