Marvel Studios didn’t disappoint Hall H fans when they previewed upcoming projects like She-Hulk, Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 3and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
Along with giving more details on previously announced series and movies, Marvel CCO Kevin Feige announced the next two phases after the current Phase 4. Phase 5 begins with Ant-Man: Quantumania beginning of 2023 and ending with Love at first sightreleased in July 2024.
The final phase they discussed, Phase 6, previewed the end of its newly titled multiverse saga with Avengers: Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars. However, this still left many available slots open in Phase 6.
Eight Titles Missing in Phase 6
Kevin Feige revealed the first major elements of the MCU’s Phase 6, including The Fantastic Four, Avengers: Kang Dynastyand Avengers: Secret Wars.
Curiously, the sixth phase timeline spanning between 2024 and 2025 reserved eight more dates but left them untitled.
The eight dates include Fall 2024, Fall 2024, Winter 2024, Winter 2025, Spring 2025, Spring 2025, Summer 2025, and Summer 2025.
MCU Phase 6 Predictions
There are more than a few possibilities as to which projects can fill those empty Phase 6 slots, but fans have probably heard of quite a few already.
A project which had already been announced, but which was not mentioned at the SDCC, was that of Don Cheadle Armor Wars.
Cheadle was revealed at the SDCC to have a role in Disney+ Secret Invasion coming in 2023, so development into its own series could be close.
Shang Chi 2
Simu Liu will certainly return as Shang-Chi in the MCU after a well-reviewed and well-received origin film at the box office. The second film in this franchise appears to be a lock before the fifth avengers film.
Ms. Marvel Season 2
After his adventures in the cosmos in WondersKamala Khan seems fit for a second season of Ms. Marvel on Disney+.
Khan has a very bright future in the MCU, especially after being revealed as a mutant in the Season 1 finale. Another grounded and family-focused season seems fitting ahead of a possible Avengers appearance.
Normally, Sony Pictures plays by its own rules, sets a Spidey date, and Marvel Studios has to adapt accordingly. It’ll probably play out the same if they decide to do another Tom Holland. Spider Man movie, but maybe a new deal would help keep everything better connected and planned.
doctor strange 3
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness introduced a major plot point moving forward: incursions. Fans of the Secret Wars comics will know that Incursions will likely play a major role in the MCU.
During the post-credits scene of Multiverse of Madness, Strange leaves with Clea (Charlize Theron) to repair an incursion he caused. A Third Doctor Strange Movie Starring Clea, Wong, and Benedict Cumberbatch in the Lead Role Could Lead To Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars.
Other projects that could fill these gaps are Mutants or another x-men series/movie, Young Avengers, Hawkeye Season 2Eternals 2, the already announced ten rings series, one Wakanda series, Thor 5Where Dead Pool 3.
Phase 6 is ready to begin The Fantastic Four on November 8, 2024.
