After dumping a metric ton of Marvel movie and TV news on the convention, Feige summed up the panel with this: “There’s a lot of other stuff we didn’t get the chance to talk about today. We didn’t even get to mention that we’re making Black Panther 2. We didn’t mention Guardians of the Galaxy 3 [is coming]. We didn’t have time to talk about Captain Marvel 2. I didn’t even have time to talk about the Fantastic Four. And there’s no time left to talk about mutants. But you know what, all that stuff’s been rumored. You’ve heard the rumors.”
This is Feige’s most direct statement yet that Marvel is hard at work trying to fold these two huge franchises into their big metaverse. And quite frankly, with all the multiversal news breaking out of that panel, this feels like a confirmation that at least some of the merger is going to be from parallel universes – WandaVision directly connects to Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which is clearly going to be about all of the parallel universes opened up after the events of Avengers: Endgame.
Might that mean that the Fantastic Four and the X-Men exist in parallel universes that will slowly be introduced in the upcoming slate of Phase 4 Marvel movies? It’s a pretty good plan if you ask us. It would explain why Marvel’s other two biggest superhero teams were nowhere to be found during the Infinity Saga.
We’ll just have to wait and see. In the meantime, it’s great to hear that Black Panther 2, Guardians 3, and Captain Marvel 2 are also on the way. While they might be a little way’s off, they’re coming.
