In The Mailbag: Derek Hall asks “Ok, so I know we're really far away from Marvel's Phase 4 announcement. But I'm still wondering what we might see in it. We know about sequels to Guardians, Spider-Man, etc. I was hoping you had some predictions of what new heroes we'll see in Phase 4. Maybe Marvel does Fantastic 4 the right way if they can strike up a deal with Fox like they did with Sony?  Thanks guys. I love the daily pod. Keep it up.”
