While Marvel fans have had both WandaVision and The Falcon and The Winter Soldier in recent months, there's nothing quite like the movies and after more than a year of staying home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, people are headed back to theaters and so is Marvel. On Monday, Marvel released an epic sizzle reel for its Phase 4, offering looks at the slate of films heading into theaters in the next couple of years. But while fans were amped to see new footage from Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the very first footage from Marvel's Eternals, and even confirmation of titles for Captain Marvel: The Marvels and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, there were a few upcoming projects not featured that left fans wondering what's up.
Absent from Marvel's Phase 4 sizzle reel were Deadpool 3, Blade, and Captain America 4 and immediately, fans have some questions. In the case of Captain America 4, most of the response comes down to the realization that we likely have to wait three years for that story, a wait that feels like forever considering Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) just took on the Captain America mantle in The Falcon and The Winter Soldier. However, Deadpool 3 and Blade both have been a part of the conversation for much longer. Ryan Reynolds confirmed Deadpool 3 was in the works at Marvel Studios back in 2019 and Blade was announced at Marvel's San Diego Comic-Con presentation in 2019 as well as part of their showcase of Phase 4 projects. The lack of release date or additional information about those projects in the sizzle reel has left fans with questions and they've taken to social media to talk about it.
On Twitter, fans want to know what's going on with Deadpool 3, Blade, and Captain America 4, and they're not being picky. Any update is welcome, though many fans want to know specific titles and release dates. You can read on to see how fans are reacting to the lack of update on those three upcoming Marvel Studios projects and be sure to weigh in with your thoughts in the comments.
