There are already discussions on the sequels to the movies of King T’Challa and Carol Danvers and the solo Black Widow film starring Scarlett Johansson. Another planned film is the adaptation of Shang-Chi which will be directed by Daniel Cretton and will star an Asian-American actor.
Another hot topic in the MCU studio is The Eternals which is set to be directed by Chloe Zhang and will star Angelina Jolie, Kumail Nanjiani and an openly gay actor.
