The Blade news had me all giggly and stuff!

Hopefully Jordan Peele has Kevin Feige’s number too.....

Definitely a diverse slate of films. The Eternals and Shang-Chi seem like tougher draws to turn into hits. Black Widow could be a nice look into some early elements of the MCU. She has very minimal backstory so it seems like a good chance to reveal everything we haven't seen. Blade is a very unexpected choice. I kinda hope Wesley Snipes gets to be involved somehow but chances are he won't be.

The sequels seem like the safest bets although it is crazy to think of the time between the previous Black Panther and GOTG films. I imagine there's still a Captain Marvel, Spider-Man and hopefully Ant Man sequel to announce somewhere in the future.

And then after all these are out possibly X-Men and the Fantastic Four? Considering how Marvel Studios is willing to introduce characters in offbeat ways I would love it if Dr. Doom showed up in an adaptation of the Dr. Doom/Dr. Strange: Triumph and Torment story from the 80s. It would be a way to get him into view without the FF being his chief opponent right away.

Crazy to think that we have to wait until next year for more on screen Marvel. I've gotten used to three per year release schedule. Before you know it they'll have to step it up to four per year.

Captain Marvel 2 was announced by maestro Feige.

As was Black Panther 2 and the Fantastic Four.  No dates were given however.  

He also said he didn’t have time to “talk about mutants”.  So the X-Men are cooking as well.

Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness (AWESOME TITLE!) is reportedly going to be something of a horror/scary movie that will feature Scarlet Witch and somehow tie into her Disney+ series with Vision.

Blade I suspect will also give us a taste of MCU spooky stuff.

Fun slate! Some of the "lesser" properties should give a lot of room for
creative opportunities. ETERNALS has SO much potential.

I'm loving the idea of the unpredictable nature of all of these announcements.  Will they translate to above-average filmmaking?  Remains to be seen, but I've enjoyed almost every Marvel Studios film since its inception.  The least I expect is that they're fun, pleasant time-wasters in the theater.

This "Phase 4" is certainly rich with possibilities.  And some of those titles are a hoot!

Black Widow I can take or leave, but Eternals, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (great title!), Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings and Thor: Love and Thunder have me sold.

With Fantastic Four and X-Men reboots in the wings, this is just great news.

Glad the proper Mandarin gets a moment in the sun (filling in for Fu Manchu perhaps?). Just when I thought that Iron Man blu ray short wouldn't go anywhere...

I wasn't the biggest fan of the Jason Aaron run used as inspiration, so I'm not wildly enthused about Jane Thor getting a movie (would've preferred them just doing a Valkyrie movie), but we'll see how it goes.

Marvel is going to dominate the next decade, as it did the previous one. Really looking forward to these!

One thing I absolutely never would have predicted would be that the Thor franchise would see a fourth movie before Iron Man or Captain America.
