Marvel Studios’ Phase 4 of Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) will include 10 movies and Disney + series when it launches next year.

Marvel unveiled its bumper slate of new superhero movies Saturday, wheeling out a who's who of Hollywood stars and prompting a collective meltdown at Comic-Con as it ended frenzied speculation over the most lucrative franchise in film history.

Angelina Jolie, Salma Hayek and Rachel Weisz were brought on stage in San Diego to join Marvel film stalwarts such as Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman in the upcoming -- and sure to be multi-billion-grossing -- movies.

"I can spend 90 minutes talking about what we've done or I can spend some time talking about what we're about to do," said Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, drawing rapturous screams from thousands packed into the world's largest pop-culture fan convention.

Giant screens in Hall H then revealed a timeline of forthcoming films and television shows scheduled for the two years including new outings for popular characters such as Thor, Black Widow, Doctor Strange and Loki.

Feige also confirmed sequels to Black Panther, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Captain Marvel without providing details.

He finished the show -- the most anticipated of the four-day event -- by announcing that Oscar-winner Mahershala Ali will front a "Blade" reboot.

The Marvel films have collectively grossed over USD 22 billion at the global box office.

The studio's most successful film Avengers: Endgame is set to overtake James Cameron's "Avatar" as the highest grossing movie of all time "in a matter of days," said Feige.

Jolie and Hayek will front ensemble film The Eternals in November 2020, which will feature the franchise's first deaf superhero.

It will be followed in February 2021 by Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, the first Marvel superhero film to be led by an Asian actor.

Mega-budget shows to air on Disney+, the new streaming service from Marvel's parent company, will include Wandavision starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, and Tom Hiddlestone's Loki.

Marvel's next round of new films will kick off with Johansson's Black Widow in May next year. Early footage showed Johansson's character battling with her sister in a Budapest apartment building.

Later in 2020, Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan will reprise their roles for The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.

Benedict Cumberbatch will also return for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness in May 2021.

Feige additionally teased the arrival of other popular comic characters, saying there was "no time to talk about" productions of Fantastic Four and Mutants -- seemingly references to franchises acquired by Disney in its purchase of 21st Century Fox including the popular X-Men films.
