HEROES IN THE PIPELINE. NEW AVENGER FILMS, ' Wakanda Forever ' and ' Black Adam ' are set to take over.

SAN DIEGO : Two new Avenger films will hit theaters in 2025, Walt Disney Co's [DIS.N] Marvel Studios announced on Saturday at a presentation to fans highlighting parts of its upcoming slate of superhero TV shows and films.

Avengers : The Kang Dynasty and Avengers : Secret Wars will wrap up phase six of the hugely successful Marvel Cinematic Universe [MCU], Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said from the stage at the annual Comic-Con pop culture convention in San Diego on Saturday. Phase four through six will be known as the Multiverse Saga, he added.

The announcement drew loud cheers and applause from a crowd of more than 6,000 in a packed convention hall, though Feige provided few details. Avengers : Endgame, released in 2019, is the second-highest grossing film of all time, and MCY films have generated more than $25 billion in global box office sales.

Feige also revealed plans for an 18-episode TV series called Daredevil : Born Again, which will stream on Disney+ in the spring of 2024, and a Thunderbolts movie scheduled for July 2024.

The studio spotlighted some of the nearer term films in Marvel's phase five, including next February's debut of the third Ant-Man and The Wasp film, subtitled Quantumania.

''We finally get to spend some time in the quantum realm, which is not always what you think it is,'' teased director Peyton Reed. Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3 will delve deeper into the back stories of movie's offball characters, including the gun-touting raccoon named Rocket, who director James Gun described as ''the saddest creature in the universe.''

Marvel ended the presentation with a look at Black Panther : Wakanda Forever, a sequel to 2018 blockbuster that starred Chadwick Boseman, who died of cancer two years later.

Wakanda Forever 

Director Ryan Coogler recalled watching scenes from the first Black Panther with Boseman at an earlier Comic-Con and the actor gripping his shoulder with excitement.

''I promise you I can feel his hand on me right now,'' Coogler said. ''His spirit, his passion, his genius, his pride in his culture, and the impact he made on his industry, it will be felt forever. ''

The cast and director of the upcoming sequel to Marvel Studios blockbuster paid tribute to their late co-star, recalling how they worked through their grief while making the new film.

Lupita Nyong'o, Letitia Wright and other stars were also present at the culture convention to preview Black Panther : Wakanda Forever, which is slated to hit theaters in November. ''It feels monumental to be back in Wakanda,'' said Nyang'o, who reprises her role as the warrior Nakia in the sequel, due in theaters in November.

Boseman, who played the title character in the 2018 film, died of cancer at age 43, two years after the movie's release, prompting a rewrite of the next instalment.

Wright said several scenes in the new film were fueled by the cast dealing with the loss of Boseman. ''Those are raw emotions that you saw in that trailer,'' Wright said. ''We weren't faking. It was real because we feel so deeply and we are grieving so deeply.''

Black Adam 

Comic-Con took place in-person and at full 130,000 strong capacity again for the first time in three years, after going online due to the pandemic. Earlier on Saturday, Dwayne ''The Rock'' Johnson made a grand entrance to the convention center's giant Hall H, appearing in full superhero costume raised above the stage amid smoke and thunder effects, to promote Black Adam.

The DC comic book adaptation about an ancient slave granted godlike powers who reawakens in the modern world comes out in October. Warner Bros is banking on the film boosting their DC superhero film universe, which has grossed billions without reaching the heights of rival and record-breaking Marvel films such as avengers : Endgame 

''Maybe it's time to feel a little bit of shift, get in there and disrupt things a little bit, and listen to the fans,'' said Johnson. Warner also presented superhero sequel, Shazam! Fury of the Gods, but rumors that Superman actor Henry Cavill would announce his return in a long-anticipated new film proved unfounded.

Asked who would win in a fight between Black Adam and Superman, Johnson cryptically responded : ''Pound for Pound. they're pretty close ..... it probably all depends on who's playing Superman ........ I'll leave it at that! [AFP/REUTERS].
