I am very excited about all of the recent updates coming out of Disney regarding the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
First up, is Emilia Clarke. It was announced that Emilia, one of my favourite actors, will be joining the MCU as part of the cast of the upcoming Disney+ series, ‘Secret Invasion’. Her character has not been announced yet but she will join Samuel L Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn who are reprising their roles as Nick Fury and Talos, the Skrull General. I cannot wait to see this! Hopefully it will be released later in 2021 or some time in 2022.
Captain Marvel 2 has had a rebrand- It is now known as ‘The Marvels’ which gives it more of a family feel. The image below (courtesy of Captain Marvel News) shows Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, Kamala Khan/Ms Marvel and Monica Rambeau. I don’t know if this will be the first meeting between Kamala Khan and her hero Captain Marvel or if we will see that as part of the Ms Marvel Disney+ series.
Finally, below is an image that I found on Google (creator as of yet unknown) that shows all the upcoming MCU projects including WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier which have already been released (and were both excellent).
