"All of the next films by design have been built to be very different, to be very unique". Thor: Ragnarok, Black Panther, next Avengers, and even Ant-Man and the Wasp, who is nearing the end of its production. "All four of those movies are distinct and special and I can't wait for people to see". It is starting to feel like we are overdue.
