Avengers: Endgame has come and gone, and now you're wondering what's next for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

It's not the easiest question to answer. Endgame was the culmination of 11 years of storytelling spread over 22 films, and Marvel Studios has been secretive when it comes to the future.

While there are a number of films in development, only July's Spider-Man: Far From Home has an official release date. Expect that to change in the coming months as Marvel pulls back the curtain on its plans.

Adding extra intrigue to the MCU is the upcoming Disney+ streaming service, which will feature a number of shows starring Marvel Studios' big screen actors. No release date has been set for those yet, but unlike ABC's Agents of SHIELD or the now-defunct Netflix shows such as Daredevil and The Punisher, these series are said to have a real impact on the MCU.

"These will be both new and continuing stories," Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige said of the Disney+ shows in April. "These will be major storylines set in the MCU with ramifications that will be felt both through the other Disney+ series we'll be producing and the future on the big screen." (There will also be a What If show that does not take place within the MCU continuity.)

The list will be updated as new release dates are announced for both the movies and the Disney+ Marvel shows.

  • 'Spider-Man: Far from Home'

    July 5

    Spider-Man: Far From Home will start a new era of Marvel movies following Avengers: Endgame.

    Tom Holland returns as Peter Parker/Spider-Man and must navigate a world that has been dramatically altered in the wake of Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. The film will see Peter and his classmates head to London for a school trip, where Spidey will run across Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal).

    "There's still a lot of unexplored territory," director Jon Watts has said of keeping Spider-Man in high school for a sequel. "To deal with the fallout of Infinity War and be a junior in high school, I think sounds like a pretty good movie to me."

  • 'Black Widow'

    TBD

    Scarlett Johanson is stepping into her own solo Black Widow movie after first debuting the character in 2010's Iron Man 2. She is expected to collect $15 million for the role in the film that will be a prequel and directed by Australian filmmaker Cate Shorthand.

  • 'Eternals'

    TBD

    Doctor Strange filmmaker Scott Derrickson is developing a sequel to his 2016 film, which starred Benedict Cumberbatch as the comic book sorcerer. The character's stock has only risen thanks to that film and his role in the Avengers franchise.

    The upcoming Disney+ series will see Elizabeth Olsen reprise her role as Scarlet Witch and Paul Bettany return as Vision.

    "This story is definitely something unexpected and surprising, as well as something we could only do in a longform series," Kevin Feige has said of the project, which has Captain Marvel screenwriter Jac Schaeffer serving as showrunner.

    Actors Anthony Mackie (Falcon) and Sebastian Stan (Winter Soldier) have strong chemistry together, as was evident at the Avengers: Endgame premiere, where they kept crashing each other's interviews.

    "You will see much more of that chemistry and learn much more about both of them," Feige told THR of their upcoming Disney+ series. "There's a reason we chose these two as one of the first ones."

  • 'Hawkeye' Disney+ Series

    TBD
