The name The Multiverse Saga will officially be used for the present MCU era, Kevin Feige said at San Diego Comic-Con 2022. Yes, Marvel Studios is plunging into parallel worlds and presenting new iterations of some of the most well-known heroes and villains from the past 15 years.
Lady Loki, Moon Knight, Ms. Marvel, Kate Bishop, America Chavez, and even Hercules were among the finest MCU characters who were introduced during Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). But where is it going? The Loki trilogy, however, also paved the way for the subsequent major antagonist, Kang the Conqueror. He is a time-travelling dictator who is out to govern all periods of reality itself and become one of the greatest Marvel villains.
What additional forthcoming Marvel films and Marvel shows are on the horizon? Phase 4 came to a close at the end of 2022, which means Marvel Phase 5 is now in progress. Fortunately, we’re here to help you navigate the Sacred Timeline and go through the remaining Marvel films in chronological sequence.
What movies are in Marvel’s Phase 5?
Ant-Man 3, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, The Marvels, Deadpool 3, Captain America 4, Thunderbolts, and Blade are all part of Marvel’s Phase 5.
Here’s every movie in Marvel Phase 5:
- Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania (February 17, 2023)
- Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (May 5, 2023)
- The Marvels (November 10, 2023)
- Deadpool 3 (May 3, 2024)
- Captain America: New World Order (July 26, 2024)
- Thunderbolts (December 20, 2024)
- Blade (February 14, 2025)
With the release of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania in February 2023, Kang began to appear more frequently as a strategy of establishing himself as the next major villain. The lineup of upcoming films also includes several much anticipated films.
The latest Marvel film, Ant-Man 3, wasn’t the finest we’ve ever seen, but it had its moments.
The Marvels, starring Captain Marvel (Brie Larson), Monica Rambeau (Teyonah Parris), and Ms. Marvel (Iman Vellani), will then be released in November 2023. The Marvels teaser teases an intergalactic journey that takes place after Carol Danvers and Kamala Khan switched places in the Ms. Marvel post-credit sequence.
While this is happening, the eagerly awaited Deadpool 3 release date will begin in 2024 with a May release. The MCU Blade release date was originally planned to occur before Deadpool at the end of 2023, but the Mahershala Ali production has run into some development problems and won’t appear until 2025.
What TV series are in Marvel’s Phase 5?
What If and Loki will receive a second season in the next Marvel television lineup, while established characters will be further explored in Secret Invasion, Echo, Ironheart, Agatha: Coven of Chaos, X-Men ’97, Spider-Man: Freshman Year, and Daredevil: Born Again.
Here’s all the TV series in Marvel Phase 5:
- Secret Invasion (June 21, 2023)
- Loki season 2 (October 6, 2023)
- Echo (November 29, 2023)
- X-Men ’97 (2023)
- Ironheart (2024)
- Agatha: Coven of Chaos (2024)
- Daredevil: Born Again (2024)
- What If…? season 2 (TBC)
- Spider-Man: Freshman Year (TBC)
Since Disney Plus has allowed for additional tales and characters in its own TV series, Marvel’s goals have grown significantly. Phase 5 has the possibility for seven Marvel series to be released on one of the greatest streaming platforms, showing that the corporation has been pleased with Marvel’s work thus far.
Even while there might not be many multiverse adventures on the theatrical schedule, the What If…? season 2 release date on Disney Plus could make things a bit stranger. The animated series, which was previously set for early 2023 but is now merely ‘coming soon,’ will once more transport viewers around the cosmos to consider wildly various interpretations of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and villains.
Based on the comic event of the same name, Secret Invasion was published on June 21, 2023, and featured Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) battling an unexpected Skrull assault on Earth. Along with him were Don Cheadle, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Cobie Smulders, Olivia Colman, Emilia Clarke, Ben Mendelsohn, Martin Freeman, and even Ben Mendelsohn. Here is a recap of the Secret Invasion series.
