Marvel phase 5 release schedule

Every Marvel Project Coming in the Next 4 Years

Marvel Studio has updated its release schedule, unveiling the rest of Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe at San Diego Comic-Con. Excitingly, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige returned to Hall H and gave attending fans the low down on Phase 5, which included announcements for the new Daredevil Disney+ series, and the Thunderbolts feature film. Feige also teased Phase 6, which is set to conclude in November 2025 with Avengers: Secret Wars, capping off the Multiverse Saga of the MCU. Below is everything we learned over the weekend about the rest of Phase 4, Phase 5, and what’s on the horizon in Phase 6.

Marvel Release Schedule

Marvel’s latest film Thor: Love and Thunder is currently in theatres and reportedly closing in on USD$600 million globally at the box office, according to Deadline. However, fans can rest assured the studio has more blockbuster bangers loaded in the chamber for the remainder of 2022.

“I think we learn something on every project we do, but as we were laying out, even three years ago here laying out Phase Four, which we didn’t lay out all of, but most of, we realized that it’s very different than Phase One, Two and Three, that that there are more projects in less years, and therefore it didn’t seem right, you’re not going to culminate every 10 months in an Avengers movie,” Feige explained via Comicbook. “And each of the films themselves now have become quite big and are crossover events in many ways. And after, you know, the creative experience we had with Infinity War and Endgame, it felt like it was about capping a saga, saving back-to-back Avengers films for the completion of a saga and that’s really what we wanted to lay out today.”

Co-star Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill) was in the building to preview the new gritty political thriller TV series, starting with Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. The vibe was reportedly one of paranoia and foreboding, leaning into the larger anti-heroic thread that seems to run through Phase 5.

Thunderbolts

Phase 5 ends with Marvel’s team-up film about a bunch of MCU anti-heroes. Feige told the panel he would reveal casting another day.

Release Date: July 25, 2024

Marvel Phase 6 Movies

Perhaps the biggest revelation about Phase 6 was that it only runs for less than a year. Nonetheless, here’s everything we know so far. In his discussion at San Deigo Comic-Con, Feige revealed that he “didn’t want anything to feel the same”, indicating that while new Avengers flicks were on the way, they would be very different than previous instalments.

“Well, I think the truth is all of the tags are never just about the future, their tags that are eating shawarma, Captain America saying, ‘You got to learn patience, sometimes you wait for something not worth it.’,” Feige said. “So they are always fun for us. We don’t want everything to feel the same. So some of the tags will connect, some of them won’t. Some of the films and shows will connect, some of them won’t. I think it’s just as important that we can have standalone introductory stories like Ms. Marvel, like Moon Knight, in addition to things that interconnect and build towards the larger story.”

Importantly, Feige confirmed that the new Avengers film, The Kang Dynasty will be a completely original story that helps feed into the new Multiverse Saga, a collection of films and series from Phase 5 and Phase 6 that all link together.

“A lot of what we’ve been doing has been building to the larger story,” he said. “Obviously, with The Kang Dynasty and The Multiverse Saga and now I think people will, I hope, come along for the ride both where it’s on an express train to the finale and also when it’s as fun as many of our Phase One, Two, and Three films were.”

While details are fairly scarce surrounding the new Marvel Phase 6 films, there are a few confirmed stories that Feige is excited about. Here is everything we know so far:

Fantastic 4
