These changes were made relatively early into the pandemic. At the time, it looked like theaters could reopen on a widespread scale over the summer. But now, it’s September, and it’s still unknown if Black Widow will even release at all in 2020. As of now, with continued delays, all of Phase Four is truly difficult to foresee. And Phase Five — the next phase in which MARVEL MAY RELEASE A FIFTH AVENGERS MOVIE — is downright impossible to guess.

Despite the change in release dates leaving everything so unknown, what you can rely on is for Marvel to stick to its confirmed plans for Phase 4, all of which were revealed at Comic-Con or D23 in 2019.

Eternals, which was to be the second Marvel movie of 2020, is deep into post-production. Shang-Chi has resumed filming. Both Thor: Love and Thunder and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness are in varying stages of pre-production. About the only Phase Four movie that hasn’t begun filming is Blade, starring Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali in the same role Wesley Snipes made famous in the 2000s.

There’s still some room for surprises, however. This week, fans learned that Jonathan Majors will play the villain, possibly Kang the Conquerer, in the untitled third movie in the Ant-Man series. Captain Marvel 2, which Marvel’s Kevin Feige teased at Comic-Con without a release date, enlisted director Nia DaCosta back in August.
