Leaked Marvel's Phase 4 Slate

The MCU's entire slate for its next phase has just been leaked and it seems things are going to keep moving onward and upward. The Independent was the first to report that Roger Wardell, the plot leaker of Avengers: Endgame, had just leaked the phase 4 slate.

The phase 4 slate consists of Black Widow, The Eternals, Black Panther 2, Doctor Strange 2, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Thor 4, Captain Marvel 2, Ant-Man 3, Shang-Chi, and Nova. While several of the projects have already been confirmed, most have yet to have any official announcement.

In addition to the Phase 4 dump, Wardell also offered some information on the narrative direction Phase 4 will take and how it will be structured. According to his leak, the next phase will forgo the kind of titanic, slow-developing arc that defined the first three in favor of smaller "mini-arcs" that may be resolved within the space of a few years. There will also be a relatively sharp divide between the cosmic side of the MCU and the Earth-bound side.

Wardell also seems to confirm the rumor that Norman Osborn, traditionally Spider-Man's nemesis Green Goblin, will serve that purpose in Phase 4.

 As to the other potential Avengers projects, the leak suggests that Feige and company are considering introducing the New Avengers, Dark Avengers and the Young Avengers, who may have been hinted at in Captain Marvel and Endgame. It's been speculated that Spider-Man may be tapped to spearhead this team, and a wealth of younger characters have recently been introduced which may come into play.
