    My exact reaction. He's definitely...a character?

    Introducing Black Knight makes sense given what we know about the upcoming slate. He has a long-going relationship with Sersei, from The Eternals. We know that movie will explore the ancient history of the MCU. The Quantum Realm brings time travel and alternate realities into play. Dr. Strange is all about magic. Dane's villainous uncle had a big rivalry with Wakanda. Shang-Chi has deep connections to Britain's meta-human establishment. It opens up so many exciting corners. Medieval sorcery, alternate reality, vampires, this has huge potential.

    Jack O'Connell would be the front-runner, I'd think.

    I'd also love to see Faiza Hussain featured in this. Maybe some other British heroes" Pete Wisdom, Elsa Bloodstone. And obviously Captain Britain, who was already attached to the same rumor. Interesting to see Sean Bean in that part.

    Cause it's Sony, technically.

    Their absence might have something to do with Sony?

    I'm not sure why because they've been in the rest of the First 10 years promo art.

    Which is odd - they've said Phase 4 is supposed to really go cosmic.

    What I would do is isolate the Avengers to their own group films. That way Marvel can concentrate on more individual franchises without shoehorning them into Avengers movies. So far most solo films been very Avengers centric. Which is aight, but I want more individuality in terms of films. Maybe the Fantastic 4 and X-Men can do that. Their worlds are already large and don't need ties to the Avengers to carry them.

    From Phase 4 onwards I think things will become too big to be confined to or centred around Avengers-related material. The teams up should become overall MCU events.

    Guardians 3 getting delayed and Gunn getting fired probably screwed up their cosmic plans a bit. (this may actually work in Feiges favour since it probably means the cosmic mcu can start with Fantastic Four and X-Men by the time vol 3 comes out the fox deal will have closed) It was meant to be the launch pad. Probably teasing various spin-offs etc. I hope their cosmic plans dont get bumped back too far.

    I’m sure it had an impact, and if so that would be a shame. I was really looking forward to things going cosmic and to hear about it all asap.

    That was when James Gunn was overseeing Phase Four.

    Gunn was said to be overseeing the cosmic side going forward but not the whole of Phase 4 I believe.

    As a whole, I feel like the Netflix Marvel stuff was an interesting experiment, but very flawed. The difference in budget was very noticeable compared to the feature side, and I think it would be odd to see those Netfix Marvel characters integrated into the MCU. It's a shame that things went the way they did, because I think we're really missing out from not having an MCU Daredevil or Punisher or Luke Cage popping up in the movies every once in a while. I think they should recast all those characters and just let them make small appearances throughout the MCU. If people want to know their backstories, they can get the gist of it by watching the Netflix shows. Some expository dialogue explaining their origins is all that's needed for the movies.

    It’s going to be hard to improve on Jon Bernthal as Frank Castle.

    Okay, wasn't sure where to put this, but that Marvel Female superheroes drama that was going to be written by one of the Wonder Woman writers? Pass.

    At this point, I honestly wonder if Agents of SHIELD is going to be the last Marvel show standing when all of these shows finally do end or are cancelled.

    Runaways and Cloak & Dagger may survive, as well. C&D will depend on ratings. In the case of this show, we don't even know what this was. Maybe they just didn't have a script they liked. I think this is something to pay attention to moving forward, but I don't think it means AoS will be the last one left necessarily.

    It's going to be tough for Marvel TV to sell MCU adjacent shows when actual shows featuring big screen stars and sharing continuity with the cinematic MCU are available on Disney +. Either the two sides need to start working together or Marvel TV has gots to gew.

    When Disney Plus gets going, ideally everything will eventually be integrated. I’m sure that’s what most consumers want - even if there isn’t always direct crossover. Just maintain at least the illusion that they might all be taking place in the same universe.
