Now let's move on to the movies. It was revealed that Black Panther 2 is still happening despite the unfortunate passing of Chadwick Boseman. Since Marvel is choosing not to recast the character, the sequel will focus on the world of Wakanda.
The sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania got an interesting title and also confirmed that Jonathan Majors will play Kang the Conqueror. The film will still be directed by Peyton Reed and bring back the main cast members.
Finally, saving the best for last, Marvel made it official that a Fantastic Four reboot is now in development and will be directed by Spider-Man 3's Jon Watts. Needless to say, it's an exciting line-up in the next two years.
