There is A LOT to cover with last nights amazing Marvel’s Hall H presentation at San Diego Comic-Con, so let us just start with the dates, the stars, and what we know so far!

Black Widow | May 1st, 2020

66948818_710482686046013_6587381261034061824_n

Director: Cate Shortland

Stars: Scarlett Johansson, David Harbour, Florence Pugh, O-T Fagbenle, and Rachel Weisz

What We Know (So Far):

 

During the quick panel, Johansson talked about doing a Black Widow film in this time rather than if it were made years ago, saying:

“I don’t know if I could have played this iteration of Natasha ten years ago. It would have been a very different film and you know, I get to play Natasha as a fully realized woman and in all of her many facets. I’m excited for fans to see the flogged side of her, what she perceives to be the flogged side of her. And I’m looking to wipe out some of the red in my ledger.”

The official poster logo, as well as a small clip featuring a fight between Black Widow and Shostakov, debuted, as far as excitement goes, the cast and director are pumped and appear to be giving it their all. Check out the full panel down below! Marvel Studios Black Widow will arrive in theaters May 1st, 2020.

 

 

The Falcon And The Winter Soldier | Fall 2020 (Disney +)

Starring: Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, and Daniel Brühl

What We Know (So Far):

  • Daniel Brühl will reprise his role in Captain America: Civil War as Baron Zemo.
  • Falcon will transition into Captain America in this series. 
  • Anthony Mackie has already tried on the suit and came to Hall H with a shiny new shield.

 

Of course, we are going to be seeing the playful contention between The Falcon and Winter Soldier, but where Zemo fits into this, I am not sure. Perhaps coming to turn Winter Soldier back on?… (that sounded weird…).
