Now, Bob Iger, appears to confirm that announcements for Marvel Studios’ upcoming films will be arriving as early as this summer. This news correlates to recent comments made by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige regarding Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Many had assumed that Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame would be the end to Marvel Studios’ Phase 3, but that isn’t actually the case. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has previously stated that Spider-Man: Far From Home will end Phase 3 for Marvel Studios. Therefore, news of Marvel Studios’ Phase 4 being announced this summer makes perfect sense.

“There are huge opportunities, there are many many different directions that we can go.”

 Disney has helped expand the Marvel Cinematic Universe ever since it gained rights to help Marvel distribute these characters on film.

‘Aladdin’ Images Show Vibrant New Look At Naomi Scott As Jasmine

The latest Aladdin images showoff Jasmine’s (Naomi Scott) incredible wardrobe.

Entertainment Weekly has revealed some brand new photos from Disney’s upcoming live-action remake of their animated classic, Aladdin. This collection of photos focuses on Princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott) and her vibrant wardrobe collection.

Naomi Scott spoke to EW about Jasmine’s colorful wardrobe choices in Aladdin and how it plays a part in her character, the world and the journey she goes through:

“The main conversation is structure versus freedom that I think is obviously is the metaphor for her journey as a character. If she’s wearing something that’s structured and beautiful, it can’t just be the sake of it looking great, it needs to be connected to the story.”

EW reports that there are around 10 new outfits that Naomi Scott will don as Jasmine in the film, giving her the opportunity to showcase her beauty as the beloved princess as Aladdin (Mena Massoud) attempts to woo her.

Aladdin costume designer Michael Wilkinson discussed the approach taken to bringing the new costumes to life in live-action form:

“When you’re designing the costumes for a live action film that’s based on animation, there’s an opportunity to take these characters and give them literally more depth and details, really think about them as fully-fleshed people with complex psychologies and interesting personalities, so it was wonderful to explore who Jasmine really was and be able to express that through her many costumes in the film.”
