In short, in the ‘Avengers: Endgame’ even died twice in the husband of Wanda, thought she and Vision (alive) have two children, and then found that all this is all her fantasy ……

The plot of ‘WandaVision’, including the appearance of “Darkhold”, is also an important premise of the film ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’.

The American drama ‘Loki’ is a very important work in the fourth phase of the MCU, the beloved Loki (played by Tom Hiddleston), in the ‘Avengers: Endgame’ inside with the stolen Tesseract ran away (this is the Loki in the timeline of 2012, not the one choked to death by Thanos in our main universe).

Together with Loki’s partner (Owen Wilson), they find one of the variants of Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors), the man at the end of time, in this show.

4. The movie ‘Black Widow’ really came a little later than we thought, this film takes place between ‘Captain America: Civil War’ and ‘Avengers: Infinity War’, probably around 2016.

Natasha Romanoff’s past has been mentioned many times in the MCU’s previous films, and it’s time to be acted out, and as for the end result, the audience and fans naturally know what’s in their hearts.

The biggest role of the film is not to retrace Natasha Romanoff’s past, but to introduce the “second generation of Black Widow” – Florence Pugh’s Yelena, also known as Natasha Romanoff’s unrelated sister.

William Hurt as Secretary Ross returns to appear in this film, and as mentioned earlier, Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, the director of the CIA who was supposed to make her debut in this film, shows her face in the post-credits egg.

For example, if the serum was injected not Steve Rogers, but Margaret Peggy Carter (Captain America girlfriend), then the world will have a female version of “Agent Carter” and so on.

Since ‘Loki’, the concept of “parallel universes” has been further opened up in this drama, which is the most brilliant work of this stage.

The front of the show looks like each episode is a separate story, but eventually it will come together into a story line, and Jeffrey Wright voices ‘The Watcher’, who will also be the central character of the episode.

‘What If…?’ A very large number of big names from the MCU were invited to voice their characters in the cartoon.

It can be roughly understood as an event that will wipe out all humans on the planet (in other words, Thanos snapped his fingers to reduce the population in order to delay the event, is he actually a good guy?) .

The Eternals have to do their best to stop this event and defeat the common enemy, the mutants.
