Speaking of the future, this would also be a perfect opportunity for Marvel to set the official movie slate moving forward, including all of the new heroes that will be joining the MCU over the next few years. Again, there have been many rumours and reports surrounding all sorts of projects, most notably The Eternals to Shang-Chi. Of course, there’s no shortage of material for Marvel to choose from, and there’s even the prospect of exploring different eras as well (I for one would love a classic Marvel western film, with the Two Gun Kid or other old heroes). Or perhaps, following Avengers: Endgame, the Young Avengers are finally going to be represented on the big screen. No matter what the plans are, a Marvel press conference would be a great place to reveal the full slate moving forward. Everyone remembers the iconic moment at Comic-Con where the MCU cast and crew were brought onto stage and we could have this moment once again with a whole new crop of talent included.
Whilst it is exciting to see what’s new, it will also be great to get confirmation on a few returning favourites. Some MCU heroes will be finished by the time the credits roll on Endgame. Others seemingly have their sequels and solo films lined up for the future, such as Spider-Man, the Guardians, Black Panther, Doctor Strange and Black Widow. A press conference would also be a great time to let us know what direction some of these sequels are going in, especially for the much anticipated Black Widow film. Finally, we could also get some clues as to the next big crossover event. ‘Dark Reign’ and ‘Secret Invasion’ have been mentioned for while now and with both being heavily connected to the other, don’t be too surprised if this is to happen soon.
With Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame fast approaching and Phase Three soon drawing to a close, Marvel really should host a new press conference to detail the future of the MCU and get fans excited for what’s in store. We’re in a period of lots of speculation and rumours at present and that needs to come to an end soon, setting the stage for a brand new era of the MCU that everyone can get excited about.
