Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has publicly revealed while in Shanghai, China that Spider-Man: Far From Home is actually the final film in Phase 3, not Avengers: Endgame. The Chinese YouTube account roughly translated to DaChongWatchingMovies, posted the snippet from the red carpet

“It’s the end of the third phase, you’re the first person I’ve told that to.”

While this hasn’t been announced, it would suggest that Cate Shortland’s Black Widow movie is actually the first movie in Phase 4. Widow has yet to be given an official release date but since it’s supposed to kick off its production this June at Pinewood Studios UK (wrapping in October) we would assume that it would be the film to nab the May 1st, 2020 spot over something like The Eternals that is expected to begin filming months later in September.

Black Widow’s cast is shaping up nicely with Rachel Weisz, David Harbour, Florence Pugh, and O-T Fagbenle joining Scarlett Johansson in the spy flick.

Other Marvel Studios flicks expected to be part of Phase 4 include The Eternals, Shang-Chi, Doctor Strange 2, Black Panther 2, and while it hasn’t been announced after making a billion dollars a Captain Marvel sequel feels like a sure bet.

Spider-Man: Far From Home also had its release date bumped up from July 5th to July 2nd.
