At San Diego Comedian-Con in late July, Marvel droppednot simply footage of upcoming films like , however within the coming years. Marvel introduced a lot it nearly felt overwhelming, significantly in case you’re an informal cinemagoer with only a passing curiosity in superhero films.
We’re right here to assist. Listed here are some solutions to questions you might need after discovering Marvel is releasing one million completely different films and TV exhibits within the subsequent three or so years.
What’s The Multiverse Saga?
Along with asserting not one, however two new upcoming Avengers films — Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, set for launch on Could 2, 2025 and Avengers: Secret Wars set for launch in Nov. 7, 2025 — Marvel additionally introduced the title of the Marvel Cinematic Universe story that stretches by way of phases 4 to six. That title is The Multiverse Saga.
What does that imply?
Nicely, Marvel may be very into dividing its launch schedule into phases. The primary part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe kicked off with films like the primary Iron Man and the third part ended with films like Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Dwelling. Marvel referred to the primary three phases of its Marvel Cinematic Universe tales as.
The Multiverse Saga is just Marvel’s title for the flicks and TV exhibits featured in phases 4 by way of 6. That begins with films like Black Widow and Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings and can presumably finish with upcoming part 6 films like Avengers: Secret Wars.
Kang is a Marvel supervillain who is about to grow to be an enormous focus in Marvel films in Phases 5 and 6. He is making his debut within the upcoming film Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. The following Avengers film, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty, has his title within the title!
Kang is performed by Jonathan Majors and is a time traveller with a number of aliases in several Marvel universes, so count on that to play into the entire multiverse side of films and exhibits in The Multiverse Saga. Enjoyable truth: the character Kang has already appeared in a Marvel present. He is an alternate model of He Who Stays, who featured within the Loki finale again in July 2021.
What are the Secret Wars
The fifth Avengers film, Avengers: Secret Wars is sort of definitely going to be considerably based mostly on The Secret Wars, a super-successful 12-issue crossover sequence of Marvel comics launched from 1984 to 1985. It featured a broad set of heroes from the Avengers, the X-Males and the Incredible 4, in addition to particular person heroes like Spider-Man. Briefly: Everybody performed a component within the secret wars. Villains within the sequence included people like Physician Doom and — yep — Kang.
Connecting the dots right here, this implies Avengers: Secret Wars will most certainly tie in upcoming films like the brand new Incredible 4 film, which Marvel introduced as being a part of the Part 6 rollout. Incredible 4 is about for launch on Nov. 8, 2024, earlier than the 2 Avengers films, that are at the moment scheduled for launch in 2025.
However there’s a second Secret Wars comedian e-book sequence, which was launched again in 2015. As all the time the MCU does its personal distinctive factor however most certainly the upcoming films will function components of all these comics. However some people imagine the more moderen Secret Wars sequence is healthier fitted to adaptation within the present kind the MCU appears to be taking.
What’s occurring with Incredible 4?
, alongside the 2 newly introduced Avengers films, are the one Part 6 films or exhibits introduced up to now. As talked about above, it is set for launch on Nov. 8, 2024 and can probably set the scene for these Avengers films.
No casting or director has been introduced as of but, however followers have been clamouring for John Krasinski within the function. We reckon that’d be a good selection. It is value noting that Krasinski already made a cameo as Reed Richards, the chief of the Incredible 4, in Physician Unusual within the Multiverse of Insanity.
What is the full launch schedule for Part 5 and Part 6 up to now?
This record comes with the caveat that there are a couple of unannounced films with dates, however no names… and a few bulletins with names however no dates!
For instance, we all know Deadpool 3 is within the works, with Ryan Reynolds teaming up with director Shawn Levy. We additionally know Armor Wars, a TV sequence starring Don Cheadle is coming, we simply do not know when it’s going to arrive.
Extra curiously, there are slots for unnamed Marvel films in Part 6. One in Feb. 14, 2025 and one in July 25, 2025. Here is the record of movies and TV exhibits:
