Marvel Studios' president Kevin Feige says the next "Avengers" film will feature a very different team

Those looking to the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and what will occur for Marvel Studios' films going forward got a reveal of that in this year's San Diego Comic-Con when Kevin Feige and the studio took to Hall H and announced their plans for Phase 4 and beyond... And that was quite a LOT.

However, what was noticeable was that there were no announcements for a new "Avengers" movie, and it's to be expected as Avengers: Endgame signaled the end of a storyline focusing primarily on the Original Six - Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow, and Hawkeye. Now it's up to a new generation of heroes to come forward and take the spotlight... And Kevin Feige told MTV News in an interview that a new line-up of Earth's Mightiest Heroes will eventually show up and will be a be a different class of their own.

Marvel Studios "What If?" animated series will explore alternate scenarios from The Infinity Saga

By now, many know and have seen what Marvel Studios has planned for the next couple of years with their official reveal of their "Phase 4" plans last weekend at the 50th annual San Diego Comic-Con. That includes the upcoming "What If?" series for Disney + - the very first animated series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and exploring "alternated realities" where decisions are made differently and characters explore differents paths and adventures that were not presented in the MCU films.

According to Kevin Feige, that's exactly the focus of the first season of the show - which will explore the first 23 films that make up Phases 1-3, aka The Infinity Saga.

"Right now, we’re focusing on for the first season, everything you know about the 23 movies in the Infinity Saga and adding one twist to them and seeing how everything turns out different."

One of the plans for "What If?" of course is turning Peggy Carter into the Super Soldier instead of scrawny Steve Rogers - as Feige mentioned again in an interview with Screen Rant. Also confirmed during the Hall H panel of Marvel Studios is that several actors and actresses who played these iconic roles in their respective films will be back - meaning Hayley Atwell and Chris Evans will reprise their roles as Peggy Carter and Steve Rogers!

What If? will hit Disney+ sometime in Summer 2021

SDCC '19: Arrow Season 8/ The Final Season Comic-Con Trailer

In what is certainly an exciting time for DC on the CW as they prepare for the coming of their epic "Crisis On Infinite Earths" crossover along with the rest of the returning and brand new shows in the Arrowverse, it's bittersweet to see that its flagship program "Arrow" will be taking a bow with its eighth season this year. Indeed, as Oliver Queen (played by the talented Stephen Amell) made the heroic decision to save The Flash and Supergirl in the last DC on the CW event - it came with a price and The Monitor came back to collect at the end of Season 7 with The Green Arrow going off on a multiversal journey to help save the universe.

What happens and how that adventure plays out will be told in 10 episodes that make up this final season. Check out the Comic-Con Trailer from SDCC 2019 and see a montage of past events, as well as teases of what's to come and some new outfits for characters we all know and love (like Laurel Lance from Earth Two in her new Black Canary costume).

Behold the Comic-Con Trailer.
