The end of Marvel’s Phase 3 left many superheroes fans heart broken. What started with Captain America: Civil War ended with a bang via Avengers: Endgame (and Spider-man: Far and Way). Marvel fans were left desolate and desperate for more. Phase 3’s 11 movies beloved by critics and movie goers grossed over $13.5 billion at the global box office.
Fans need not despair. Marvel has announced plans to release a slew of movies in 2020 and 2021. The new Phase of all my pocket money going to Marvel starts with the wonderfully epic femme fatale Black Widow and ends with Thor: Love and Thunder on November 5, 2021.

After an unexpected tragedy following the events of Avengers: Endgame, the Eternals—an immortal alien race created by the Celestials who have secretly lived on Earth for over 7000 years—reunite to protect humanity from their evil counterparts, the Deviants. Starring Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Gemma Chen.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings
There is little detail about the plot but as per the title it features the return of the Ten Rings terrorist organisation from the first Iron Man movie.
Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will also include 4 TV series to be release on Disney+. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki and What If…? are to be expected to release soon though might now get delayed due to the Coronavirus.
