This is the first time ever two Avengers films have released in the same year.
They will be part of the newly-announced Multiverse Saga, which kicked off in Phase 4 of the MCU.
Phase 4 is set to end in November 2022 with Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, with Phase 5 beginning in February 2023.
The announcement was made as part of Marvel's panel at San Diego Comic-Con, with some other massive films and series being confirmed.
The exact lineup of the Avengers is yet to be confirmed and will likely be determined by what happens in Phase 5. It's uncertain whether any of the old lineup will return, with Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man and Scarlett Johansson's Natasha Romanoff both dying in Avengers: Endgame.
One potential Avenger could be the new Black Panther, who's been teased in the trailer that's just been released for sequel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
Endgame is currently the second highest grossing movie of all time after making $2.798 billion at the box office. It was the highest grossing of all time for a brief while, before Avatar reclaimed the title courtesy of a cinematic re-release.
Disney will definitely be hoping for similar success with the follow-ups, and the MCU certainly shows no sign of stopping just yet.
The existence of the movie was confirmed at Marvel's last Comic-Con panel in 2019, after months of speculation following Disney's purchase of 21st Century Fox, who owned the rights to the Fantastic Four.
The cast is yet to be announced but there's already a lot of hype over the blockbuster, despite it being more than two years until it's released.
