All the details of the Marvel Phase 5 and 6 were announced at Comic-Con last weekend, and this is what the official calendar looks like!
Marvel Studios has no intention of slowing down and is all set to take it up a notch after Kevin Feige announced more than 10 new titles for the upcoming Marvel Phase 5 and 6 at San Diego's Comic-Con International convention. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will be the last of Phase 4, and Ant and the Wasp: Quantumania will bring a fresh start to a new chapter. Some of these movies and series like Loki season 2, Captain America: New World Order, and Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3 were what we, as Marvel fans were expecting and highly anticipating from Phase 5 but there are so many new stories that came as a total surprise for most of us. Starting with Thunderbolts, Daredevil: Born Again but most importantly Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, and Secret Wars which will end Phase 6 of the MCU.
The announcements of the last two movies sort of reminded us of Infinity War and Endgame so we could probably expect to see all the superheroes from Phase 4, 5, and 6 come together to fight yet another threat and leave us as speechless as Endgame did. Only time will tell how all of these stories will be intertwined with one another and how mega the next chapter of the MCU is going to be. It couldn't be a better time for a Marvel fanatic as the next two years look packed and busy for us. Exploring new superheroes and their backstories, we have so many whistle-worthy moments to look forward to as usual.
Let's break down the calendar one by one and have a look at all the release dates!
