You’d be forgiven for thinking that Marvel would take a victory lap at San Diego Comic Con following the release of Avengers: Endgame. Luckily for us though, Kevin Feige wasn’t quite ready to rest on his laurels, and instead gave us some insight into not only the upcoming Disney+ series from the MCU, but quite a number of the phase four films that the studio will be working on. From Shang Chi facing off with the real Mandarin, to the return of the badass vampire slayer Blade, Feige and Co. have quite the line up coming our way, and it’s looking like their most diverse layout of films yet.
