    We will learn what happened to Loki after Avengers: Endgame.

    Warning: There are spoilers for Avengers: Endgame below!

    1. First, Black Widow will officially kick off Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in May 1, 2020.

    2. Florence Pugh will play Yelena, who is a "sister figure" to Natasha, and O.T. Fagbenle plays Mason, who is a "contact for Natasha even before she joined S.H.I.E.L.D."

    3. Meanwhile, David Harbour plays Alexei aka The Red Guardian, who is the "counterpart of Captain America."

    4. Black Widow will show Natasha in a "pretty broken down place" and we'll watch her "build herself back up and pull all the pieces together."

    5. The movie will finally explore Natasha's connection to Budapest, which has been hinted at in several other movies.

    6. Black Widow is directed by Cate Shortland, making her the first solo female director of an MCU movie.

    7. Also, the movie will take place between Captain America: Civil War and Infinity War, which sadly means it looks like Natasha is still really dead after Endgame.

    8. Black Widow will also feature Taskmaster, a super villain from the comics who has the ability to perfectly mimic someone else's abilities simply by watching them.

    14. Lauren Ridloff will play Makkari, who is the first deaf hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

    18. Director Destin Daniel Cretton talked about the diversity being represented in Shang-Chi, saying, "It's so exciting to see Kevin [Feige] and this amazing team begin to create an MCU that reflects all the beautiful colors that I'm seeing in this room [at Comic-Con]."

    19. The movie will also have incredible ties to the first MCU movies, considering the legend has been hinted at since Iron Man.

    20. Chinese-Canadian actor Simu Liu will play the titular role and he only found out he landed the part less than a week before flying to San Diego Comic-Con for the big Marvel announcement panel.

    21. Also, Simu has been campaigning to star in a Marvel movie for years, so this is amazing.
