Hawkeye stars Jeremy Renner and will introduce the character of Kate Bishop. Loki stars Tom Hiddleston and follow his adventures after he escaped in the 2012 scene in Avengers: Endgame. WandaVision will have Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany and will be tied in to the next Doctor Strange film. What If…? will be Marvel Studio’s first animated show and several stars of previous MCU movies will be lending their voices as well.
Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios took the stage and mentioned that they didn’t have time to talk about Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Black Panther 2, Captain Marvel 2 and didn’t get the the time to talk about Fantastic Four and “mutants” (X-Men) but he did drop one last teaser to end the panel.
Holy fucking shit it’s BLADE! Mahershala Ali, who voiced Prowler/Aaron Davis in Spider-Man Into The Spider-Verse will be the titular vampire hero. We’re betting Blade and the rest of the movies Kevin Feige just mentioned will be part of Phase 5.
We’re definitely excited now for the next phase in the MCU and know what it’s all about.
