So it was everything that we expected with a plus. We knew that Blade was going to come eventually, but cool to know that is sooner than later. 

 

Really don't know what to expect from this Thor movie.

I am very pleased with hearing all of this, sounds exciting but um.. no Mahershala Ali cannot play Blade I'm outraged how could they do this, and destroy MCU continuity he was already Cottonmouth , just because those Netflix shows were canceled doesn't mean that they don't exist in the MCU anymore or didn't , first time I'm officially mad at Marvel Studios

Mahershala Ali is as Blade is pitch perfect. So looking forward to that. As for the Eternals, what, no Sersi?? Come on now. I'm hoping that Salma Hayek as Ajak is a typo, and that they really meant that she's Sersi. This has the potential to be either amazing or just laughably bad. Fingers crossed, because I love the Eternals.

My enthusiasm for the new Thor movie has now gone from excited optimism to a plummeting meteoric fireball, blazing its way downward to a fiery and explosive end. No way I'm going to see that now.

I'm excited for Doctor Strange 2! Shang-Chi sounds promising, but, I'm on the fence about it. Not really interested in a Loki series, and I could care less about a Hawkeye series.

The Black Widow...I'm torn. It sounds good, and I like the inclusion of Red Guardian. But...if it's merely a backstory that leaves off with her still being dead in the present, I don't know. Too sad, plus I didn't like how they handled her in the last Avengers film.

Looks promising, though I hope they aren't going down the Wanda is crazy and making alternate dimensions route. Also no sure about Foster's Thor.

Well that is an impressive list . . . of theatrical garbage fires and (formerly) respectable actors whoring themselves out for a Netflix wanna-be.

Oh well, as long as we get some good (non-MCU) figures outta this mess.

Didn't they already have the woman playing Mariah show up in Civil War as a different character? Just pretend Blade and Cottonmouth are distant cousins!

Yo Mahershala Ali as Blade? Sign me up. He was great as Cottonmouth and I wanted him to star in more Marvel projects. My girl Lizzie is appearing in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Yes, please. I do hope we'll be getting Clea. Shang-Chi is coming to the MCU and he'll be facing off against the Mandarin. They're going to do the Mandarin without Iron Man? It's like doing Venom without Spider-Ma... Oh wait. A-List actors coming to the MCU. I'm very excited.

Mahershala Ali? Did Wesley Snipes die when I wasn’t looking? But I’m happily surprised to see that Blade is coming a lot sooner than I thought. Also happy to see Wanda is teaming up with Doctor Strange.

Yes, but that could've been played off as actually being Mariah just causing mischief for one reason or another. This, on the other hand, draws a pretty hard line between the MCU and the Netflix shows. Oh well!

Given the way the likes of AOS has been treated by the MCU, the Netflix shows are in the same boat, they are influenced by the MCU not the other way round. Disney are clearly making sure that whatever they create is the prime canon.

I like all of the announcements but I'll give my two cents :

- Is that future Blade movie confirming the cancellation/cut of the links between the MCU and the netflix
shows?
- I'm also mad they did choose the female thor story. Why do they choose so recent story arcs!? Why do they ruin the characters just to force all every licence to adapt to communities? By the way, didn't Portman say she would not return the last time she spoke about Thor movies? I believe Marvel paycheck was convincing.
- Black Widow movie would have been better before Endgame, it is kind of a waste since Natasha is dead.
- Same for the Mandarin (Shang Shi, I wish we saw the real one when Iron Man was still alive.

Wow, talk about good news. I do agree about the new Thor movie though. I believe they made a WHAT IF? story already that had Jane Foster become THORDIS. And I just hope Cottonmouth has the martial arts chops to carry a big role like Blade. Or at least a good fight trainer. For me the WHAT IF's have the potential to be great especially if they use the same MCU actors. Personally I don't mind them using the same actors in other roles. As for the A list stars, its Johnny come lately. Let the new guys have a shot and save some cash in the meantime.

Phase 4 is wildly different. They weren’t lying when they said that. All of these films and shows different from each other in almost every aspect. Shang Chi? Don’t see how it can fit to everything else marvel has going on. But I’m glad they’re doing it.

I'm afraid these are the kinda "projects" that are gonna keep the MCU figures firmly secured into ML. Neither hide nor hair of a comic based Falcon or Winter Soldier, yet we'll probably see some MCU product (which they've already done) out of it as soon as they possibly can.

The Eternals? I just don't see it. A buncha aging (at one time) A-Listers signing on to take the MCU into the future? With a franchise that no one knows and is basically defunct in the comics. Not happening. And at what time do you finally give up the ghost and admit Jane Foster Thor was a massive mistake? It was bad for the comics (some might say disastrous) and it will be bad for the MCU. It was just a bad idea, period. Nobody wanted it, very few asked for it and they hadda bring the REAL Thor back to save the comic from the abyss.

I'm on the fence about WandaVision (WTF is that supposed to mean) cuz it's been a solid storyline through the comics. I'll hold out hope, plus I've really grown to appreciate both Olsen an Bettany in their roles.

I'm very interested in Shang Chi and think that it could be what Iron Fist should have been. That's assuming Disney doesn't drive it off the SJW cliff, but it's Disney so......yeah.

WHAT IF?... at first seemed the longest shot to me but after thinking it over I think this could actually have the potential to introduce some wacky and obscure characters to the MCU. Of course that would require them to break the standard heretofore practice of introducing a single protagonist who chases a single antagonist constantly throughout a 10-13 episode season (ref. any Marvel Netflix series) for a final encounter that nowhere near lives up to the build up of the entire season. Only time will tell, but again, I'll save holding my breath.

Overall this entire line up just seems like one giant reach. It just seems forced and like the biggest gamble in MCU history (short as it may be). It's starting to look like the MCU is losing its way, trying to make something, anything stick until they figure out what to do with X-Men or FF.

I like what marvel is doing with this fase but I have to say I'm more excited for the series than the movies 

I still have my doubts about the direction the mcu is taking for the future but let's see what happens

I am not going to lie but I am not that excited for this phases movies. I think the T.V. shows looks more appealing to me ! Phase 4 looks kinda weak right now but my mind might change . Who knows maybe I ll love  The Eternal and Shang-Chi. These  are comics that never caught my attention.

We do have to remember is that with a lot of Big names gone and the X-Men and F4 still a few years away, we are going to be getting movies which are either sequels or based on second stringers. Still Marvel have already shown what they can do with the likes of GOTG and Ant Man so I don't think it is really a bad thing.

Shang-Chi I like in the things I've seen him in but I was never a reader of his regular series.  Still, it's Kung-Fu adventure so it should be an easy sell, and the continuation of the "True Mandarin/Ten Rings" saga is just icing.

Eternals I've never really given a hoot about, but if there's one thing the MCU has been good at it's been making me at least a moderate fan of characters I was lukewarm on in the comics.

In short, I suspect Eternals will be just fine, and probably make a lot of people a lot more interested in those characters ala Guardians of the Galaxy.

Of that I have absolutely no doubt, and that's okay with me. Much like the MCU movies, I wish they'd do something better, but then every Endgame that comes out is 30 bucks I save. Every Big Thorbowski BAF wave that gets released is 130+ I don't have to spend.
