Kinda mixed feelings. I love marvel movies and I am excited about everything they announced... but I’m still disappointed... first of all, while all the Disney+ shows sound great... I don’t really like them getting lumped in with phase 4. It basically means this is a really short phase because there is just a handful of movies. Also, there is nothing unifying all these movies, no avengers or anything tying them together... this seems like a hefty step back for marvel and also makes me worried they aren’t going to build up to another big bad... like I said, I’m excited about everything here... but overall the big picture looks a lot murkier...

They could still very well announce one or two new films for the end of the phase.Especially an Avengers film, in which the subtitle might give something away.

But honestly?I think this is the right move.With Endgame and the Infinity Stones saga being over, and a new saga beginning, I think this is the chance to have a "soft reboot" on anything they want, be it thematics, heroes or whatever.Having a slow start can be refreshing.

Pumped about Blade (please be R), Doctor Strange 2 and Fantastic Four even though I'm not even sure 2 of them count since they were just name-dropped and not in the Phase 4 timeline.

Fantastic 4 is not part of phase 4, but the other two are.

Actually, Kevin Feige said he's not part of Phase 4:



I'm really interested in how Loki contributes to the MCU going forward, because if it's picking up from the Loki that escaped in Endgame like Kevin Feige said then that means it's a different timeline and a different Loki, so how can it be significant to the current universe? At that point isn't it just basically another "What if...?" showing different timeline shenanigans of another Loki? Unless they plan to end it with him somehow coming to the main timeline like how 2014 Gamora did.



Kinda burnt out on these movies. Most blur together, still need to watch Captain Marvel, no current plans to see new Spoderman, and Endgame was a let down that almost put me to sleep.

Breaking it down by title:
Black Widow: Long overdue and probably would've been better to have released before a certain something happened in Endgame. Not particularly interested.
The Eternals: eh.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings: Mandarin might be cool but otherwise don't care.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness: The horror movie concept could be good but I doubt kid friendly Disney will really commit (also most PG13 horror movies suck)
Loki/Hawkeye/WandaVision/The Falcon and the Winter Soldier/What If...?: I don't pay for subscription based streaming services (though I do mooch off of other people's). "What If..." might be interesting.
Thor Love and Thunder - Natalie Portman is a good actress, but her Thor roles are not what I include when pitching her talent. In fact her arcs to the Thor plots were the worst parts. And as others have brought up before, the gender swapping heroes destroyed Marvel's comic sales. What's happening to Chris Hemsworth's Thor? He's one of the few Marvel heroes left that I thoroughly enjoy. Is he now a GotG? Ragnarok so was so fresh and fun, give me another movie like that Taika.

Of the ones without release dates, Blade could be interesting but only if it's R Rated. I'd like to see how the X Men are done (and to a lesser extent the Fantastic Four) but it seems like that's not happening for awhile.

I mean, I think there is a reason why Doctor Strange 2 subtitle is named as it is.

oh that's true lmao, that completely slipped my mind with factoring those 2 together, it is possible they could lead into each other



Doctor Strange, because "Multiverse of Madness" sets a pretty damn high bar as far as subtitles go.



The female Thor movie, because some people will be triggered to no end and it'll be delicious.



 

 

 

 

 

I'm most excited for Dr. Strange: Multiverse of Madness and also Thor: Love and Thunder. I'm still going to watch all of it, but those are the two that I'm most excited for. Make mine Marvel.



There's a Marvel character named Taskmaster? I hope he's like a middle manager at a tech firm that keeps giving his team more work when they already have too much to do. His special ability can allow him to disregard deadlines anytime he dumps something on you...until an old deadline is approaching and then he wonders why you're not done yet. Actually screw you, Taskmaster.

I really liked Thor Ragnarok...but wasn't really a big fan of Natalie Portman in the first two movies. Maybe it was just the writing...but her and her quirky friend just didn't jive with me. Curious how she'll interact with the Asgardians of the Galaxy...or if that joke will only last like 10 minutes and be forgotten when GotG 3 comes out. Actually where is GotG 3?

Don't really care about the rest...but I almost never see these movies in theaters anyway so I'll wait for impressions on most.
