There’s also one more Marvel film on Disney’s calendar, but it’s without a finalized date for the time being.
With this being Marvel’s most mysterious slate in years, I’ve taken the time to compile a fairly exhaustive list of everything the studio may announce tomorrow evening.

Considering Black Widow is already filming, this film’s official announcement is about as close to a sure thing as we’ll ever get from Marvel. However, whether or not footage, concept art or a full-length trailer will be released outside of Hall H remains to be seen.
Scarlett Johansson, who delivered arguably the most heartbreaking line in Avengers: Endgame, will undoubtedly be present to showcase her long overdue solo film along with some of her cast mates, who include Florence Pugh, David Harbour, Rachel Weisz, O.T. Fagbenle and Ray Winstone.
With Chloé Zhao already locked in as director and a growing star cast that’s already added Angelina Jolie, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Ma Dong-seok and Salma Hayek, Marvel’s Eternals is also likely to feature prominently during the presentation.
A full cast reveal and concept art should be expected.
Shang-Chi might be a little further out than the prior two, but with Destin Daniel Cretton already attached as director, there is a possibility Marvel Studios will use this grand stage to officially announce the film and reveal their leading man, who has been rumored to be a newcomer.
Attendees may also get a sneak peek at some early concept art, but it’s hard to expect much more than that.
Doctor Strange 2
Things have been relatively quiet on the Sorcerer Supreme front for a while now, but with Scott Derrickson locked in to return and rumors pointing to a 2019 production start date as well as Strange’s popularity being at an all-time high after his Avengers exploits, it’s highly likely Feige will take the stage to formally announce Doctor Strange 2.
Black Panther 2
Black Panther is Marvel Studios’ highest grossing non-Avengers film ever, so this seems like the perfect time to announce a sequel, which will almost definitely grab the February date in either 2021 or 2022.
Ryan Coogler has been confirmed to write and direct, so there’s a chance he attends and possibly shares some details on the film’s villain. Also, don’t be surprised if he brings Chadwick Boseman with him.
Captain Marvel 2
While it may not have been one of Marvel Studios’ better offerings, Captain Marvel still managed to skyrocket to a billion-dollar haul and after Endgame, she’s undoubtedly one of the faces of the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so there’s a good chance we see Brie Larson make an appearance to announce a sequel.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 faced an unfortunate delay last summer, but it appears to be back on track now with James Gunn back in the director’s chair. However, we’re going to have to wait for him to complete Warner Bros.’ The Suicide Squad before he’ll be able to revisit his Guardians story.
A release date confirmation and maybe some cast appearances seem likely, although it may be a while before we get word on the film’s villain and introduction of Adam Warlock.
Following an incredible run through Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, the God of Thunder is at the absolute peak of his powers and with Taika Waititi back onboard, it seems we’re once again on the verge of getting another incredible Thor adventure, which should be made official during their presentation.
While an announcement will be plenty exciting, if Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson and/or Taika Waititi show up, then that should tear the absolute roof off Hall H.
No matter how much they dance around the question, the X-Men are coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and hopefully, it’s going to be a lot sooner than anyone might expect. While, it’s hard to imagine anything more than just an announcement for the reboot, there is always a possibility they reveal plans to introduce X-characters in other MCU films.
Also, with The New Mutants still on the release calendar, there is a small chance Feige may speak on the status of that film or he may just choose to stay quiet and let Walt Disney Studios handle its release.
It’s still way too early to think about cast members, but it’d be a big surprise if any of the X-Men actors from the Fox series were brought back after Dark Phoenix, although I don’t think anyone would be particularly upset if Marvel Studios decided to bring back just Hugh Jackman, which is, of course, highly unlikely, but if it did happen, it would be a move that would shock the entire universe.
Marvel’s Fantastic Four
In addition to the X-Men, fans are hopeful to also get an update regarding a new Fantastic Four movie or maybe just an update regarding their introduction into the Marvel Cinematic Universe since it could always in another film before leading into their own solo adventure.
Deadpool 3 (or X-Force?)
Based on what we know, Disney has no intention to move forward with Fox’s version of the X-Men or Fantastic Four, but Disney CEO Bob Iger has made it very clear the studio has plans to keep the Deadpool franchise going, which is certainly welcome news for everyone.
Whether or not Marvel Studios will have a part to play whenever Deadpool 3 gets rolling remains to be seen, but it would certainly be a cool reveal to bring out Ryan Reynolds and announce a new film or maybe even announce the long-rumored X-Force.
Ant-Man 3 (Ant-Man, The Wasp & Stature?)
After introducing a grown-up Cassie Lang (Emma Fuhrmann) in Avengers: Endgame, it seems Marvel Studios may have already set the stage for an Ant-Man and the Wasp sequel, which could hypothetically be called Ant-Man, The Wasp and Stature.
The is one of the bigger unknowns as neither of the previous Ant-Man films were particularly big blockbusters at the box office, although after Endgame, there could be a renewed interest in seeing what kind of trouble Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) get into next.
Marvel’s Spider-Man 3
After that bombshell of a mid-credits scene, the Spider-Man: Far From Home sequel has to have shot up the ranks of most anticipated superhero films ever. However, unfortunately, it’s highly unlikely the sequel is announced here unless Sony gave Marvel permission to do so.
If a sequel isn’t announced, then we may still get word on when we may see Spidey next, which is hopefully a lot sooner than later.
Falcon and the Winter Soldier (Disney+)
While Marvel Studios will likely keep the focus of their presentation on their film slate, Feige and company are also expected to drop information about a few of their upcoming Disney+ series, the first of which is Falcon and the Winter Soldier starring Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan.
The series hasn’t started filming yet, so don’t expect to see any footage, but there may be a cast reveal and/or maybe details on the premiere date.
As far as we know, Vision (Paul Bettany) is dead, but with this series confirmed, it’s probably safe to assume that the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) may have found a way to bring him back without an Infinity Stone, although that still doesn’t explain the show’s rumored period setting.
More details are to be expected during the presentation.
Loki may be the furthest along of the Marvel Disney+ series, so if we don’t get much about the other shows, we should, at least, get a decent update about this series, which will star Tom Hiddleston.
This series hasn’t been formally announced by Disney+ yet, so it’s still up in the air whether or not it’ll actually happen, but Avengers: Endgame did essentially set the stage for Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner) to possibly pass the torch to his daughter (Ava Russo) or to Kate Bishop.
Also, despite a possible series, let’s not count him out for any future Avengers films.
Marvel’s What If…? (Disney+)
Marvel’s What If…? animated series will probably only get a small mention, if anything at all, during the panel. The best we can hope for is maybe some concept art of Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) as Captain America or maybe a tease of one of the other episodes.
There’s been rumblings about this one from cast members, but nothing concrete from the studio. However, after the warm reception to the Women of Marvel moment in Avengers: Endgame, there is always a chance Feige and company could explore the dynamic more by announcing an A-Force movie instead of a true Avengers sequel, which would be a bold, but interesting move.
Captain America 4
We followed him to the end of the line… but could there be more story to tell?
Captain America (Chris Evans) received arguably Avengers: Endgame‘s most picture perfect ending and while he absolutely deserves to enjoy his life with Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), the Endgame ending did leave the door open for a potential return appearance down the line and also created endless possibilities about where he could go next.
A movie set in the past would be a cool idea and could also possibly be used as a means to introduce Wolverine, who, as we know, does have a history with Cap in the comics.
Avengers vs. X-Men.
Avengers: Secret Wars.
Avengers: The Korvac Saga.
The New Avengers.
Avengers: Secret Invasion
Avengers: Kang Dynasty
Avengers: Under Siege
Oh, the possibilities are endless and it’s hard to imagine a scenario where Kevin Feige hasn’t imagined them all, although it doesn’t seem likely that Marvel will go ahead and unveil their next Avengers film here, especially so close after Endgame, but we should all expect, at least, one big surprise before the night is over and why can’t it be the next Avengers?
