A new leak from a mysterious Marvel insider named Roger Wardell claims to have revealed every Marvel film that will be released over the next decade as the comic book giant develops phase four of its cinematic universe.

Wardell is considered by fans to be a reliable source after he leaked a number of correct details on Twitter about Avengers: Endgame last December. Among Wardell’s information on that film were a number of character returns, Captain America saying “Hail Hydra” and the “fat Thor” storyline.

According to Wardell, the next films we can expect to see from Marvel are:

Black Widow

The Eternals

Black Panther 2

Shang-Chi

Doctor Strange 2

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

Nova

Thor 4

Ant-Man 3

Captain Marvel 2

New Avengers

Young Avengers

Dark Avengers

As well as listing the films Marvel will release as part of its fourth phase, Wardell also makes some claims about the series as a whole.

He says that, going forward, the series will present “mini-arcs” as opposed to a decade-spanning saga and that there will be a clear divide between the characters based on Earth and those based on other planets.

Wardell also claims that the main villain for the Earth-based characters moving forward will be Norman Osborne, aka The Green Goblin, who will be introduced in the forthcoming Spiderman: Far From Home.

The leak claims that Black Widow will star Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova, who will be introduced as the new version of Scarlett Johansson’s character, while Richard Madden will take the lead role of Ikaris in Chloe Zhao’s The Eternals.

He also suggests that Michael B Jordan will somehow return in Black Panther 2, that Venom will be introduced into the MCU, that Deadpool will not be introduced into the MCU but will continue to appear in his own films, that Guardians of the Galaxy’s lovable raccoon Rocket will get a love interest and Drax will discover his daughter is still alive, and that Marvel are keen to bring Doctor Who and The Walking Dead director David Morrissey on board, with a number of positions being considered for him.

We can expect to learn more at San Diego Comic-Con from July 18-21, when Marvel chief Kevin Feige is due to present Marvel’s upcoming slate at the annual geek pilgrimage.
