The Hollywood Reporter reported last July that Cate Shortland (“Lore”) would direct the solo movie, which is said to be set before the events of 2012’s “The Avengers.”
David Harbour, Florence Pugh, O-T Fagbenle, and Rachel Weisz also star in the film. Taskmaster will be the villain in the movie, and it sounds like we’re finally going to learn what happened in Budapest.

At the end of Marvel Comic-Con panel, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said that’s the Phase 4 slate of movies, but they didn’t even get to sequels for “Black Panther” and “Captain Marvel” yet, which are eventually expected. He also hinted a “Fantastic Four” movie will come at some point.
