Extended Phase Four trailer moves from looks at the past to a chronological list of what’s in store for MCU fans at the theatre well into 2023.
Marvel Studios has just released an extended trailer that teases each of their upcoming ‘Phase Four’ features well into 2023. Underscored with some touching words from the late great Stan Lee, the trailer focuses first on their greatest hits (including Cap finally wielding Mjolnir to raucous applause), before transitioning into a chronological tease of upcoming films. Starting with Black Widow, Marvel finishes the dynamic presentation with a simple message, “See you at the movies.” Indeed! We’ll be there.
Watch as the Marvel Universe moves upward and onward to greater glory with a host of exciting new faces and stories:
Starting with an exciting look at Scarlet Johansson in Black Widow, which hits theatres July 9, 2021, we next get a glimpse of Marvel’s first Asian super-hero pic, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings coming September 3, 2021, and then…The Eternals, helmed by Oscar winning Nomadland director Chloé Zhao, coming November 5, 2021.
