The Marvel Studios studio at Hall H is well underway and Kevin Feige and his team are hard at work unveiling the next slate of upcoming filmings. The panel started off with Feige unveiling ten dates between 2020 and 2021 that will make up the MCU's Phase 4.
As expected, Marvel ended up announcing several films like Black Widow, Eternals, and Shang-Chi, but the production house also dropped some surprise announcements including Thor: Love and Thunder and a Hawkeye series for Disney+. All descriptions below were distributed by Walt Disney Studios in a follow-up press release immediately after tonight's Hall H panel.
