With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 off the table for now after James Gunn’s controversial firing, it seems like Marvel may have decided on a slate for 2020, which seems like their best gamble in a while.
After Avengers 4 and Captain Marvel in 2019, Our friends over at That Hashtag Show claim that Marvel will debut Black Widow and Eternals in 2020.
The timing for the two films makes sense, as both of them have been under development for a while now. Eternals may have direct ties to Avengers 4, given that Thanos himself is an Eternal.
A leaked report from Production Weekly states that Black Widow will make its way into theaters on May 1, 2020. Meanwhile, Eternals is rumoured for a November release in 2020. Directed by Chloe Zhao, here’s the leaked synopsis of the film:
“The story of ‘THE ETERNALS’ is set millions of years ago when the cosmic beings known as the Celestials genetically experimented on humans, creating the super-powered individuals as well as more villainous off-shoots known as Deviants. The two groups went on to battle each other throughout history to see which would eventually become the ultimate race. The story involves the love story between Ikaris, a man fueled by cosmic energy, and Sersi, who relishes moving amongst humans.”
Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Infinity War stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Don Cheadle, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Sebastian Stan, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, Danai Gurira, Peter Dinklage, Benedict Wong, Pom Klementieff, Karen Gillan, Dave Bautista, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Gwyneth Paltrow, Benicio del Toro, Josh Brolin, and Chris Pratt.
As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.
Avengers: Infinity War is now on Digital and Blu-ray, while the Untitled Avengers 4 hits theaters on May 3rd, 2019.
