The Future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe — What Fans Can Expect in the Next Installment


Following the blockbuster release of Avengers: Endgame, fans said goodbye (R.I.P. Tony Stark aka Iron Man) to some of the OG Marvel superheroes. The high-grossing film wrapped up the storylines of 22 previous films. So, what’s next for Marvel movies?

In a post-Endgame world, Spider-Man is the first storyline fans will get to see play out. Spider-Man: Far From Home follows Peter Parker (played by Tom Holland) as he tries to navigate everyday life and superhero work after the death of his beloved mentor, Mr. Stark. In typical Marvel Cinematic Universe fashion, the company has not officially announced future upcoming superhero movies that will follow. Though there have been no official statements made, reports have surfaced of upcoming MCU films in the works. So, here is what has been reported so far.

For years, fans have been begging MCU execs for a Black Widow standalone film. Finally, they answered our prayers, and audiences will see Scarlett Johansson revive her role as Natasha Romanoff. Filming has reportedly begun on the new movie, which will also star Rachel Weisz, Florence Pugh, and David Harbour.

Though the details surrounding the story of the film (hello, it’s Marvel) have not been released, it has been speculated that the movie will be an origin story, or possibly a few years before Endgame. Overall, it would be shocking to watch a film that sees Natasha living after the events of Thanos since she did sacrifice herself to get her fellow Avengers the Soul Stone. But hey, this is the MCU we’re talking about … and anything is possible.
