A movie trailer released by Walt Disney Co DIS and Marvel on Monday highlighted the upcoming slate of titles in Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
What Happened: The trailer featured footage from old Marvel movies with a voiceover by Marvel visionary Stan Lee.
“I love being with people, it’s the most incredible feeling in the world. That world may change and evolve, but the one that will never change — we’re all part of one big family,” Lee said.

Why It’s Important: Since acquiring Marvel, Walt Disney Co. has had massive box office success with many of the movies released. As the reopening trade begins to take shape, many people will be looking forward to going to see movies in theaters.
Some people may be cautious and only see the largest movies in theaters, limiting trips to traditional theaters, which could still favor a company like Disney with huge blockbusters.
“Avengers: Endgame,” released in 2019, is the second highest-grossing movie domestically and worldwide with grosses of $858.4 million and $2.8 billion respectively.
“Avengers: Infinity War” and “The Avengers” also rank in the top 10 for highest-grossing movies domestically.
“Black Panther” ranks fourth all-time domestically with a gross of $700.4 million. The movie ranks 12th worldwide with a total gross of $1.3 billion. The movie’s 52% domestic percentage is the highest of the top 47 highest-grossing movies worldwide.
Given the interest in the sequel after the passing of Chadwick Boseman, the sequel could perform more favorably in international markets.
Marvel Phase 4 is shaping up to be another massive payday for Disney with blockbusters lined up. Disney shares have had a strong performance with the growth of its streaming platform.
If the reopening of theme parks and movie theaters can accelerate, Disney shares could go even higher.
