Marvel Phase 4 Overview5 min read


Marvel Studios has announced their Phase 4 plan and it includes some very exciting new movies. The first movie on the list is Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings. This movie is about a martial artist who must stop his father, the head of the Ten Rings, from destroying the world.

The next movie on the list is “The Eternals” which has just been released. “The Eternals” is about a race of super-powered beings who have been around for millions of years. They are tasked with protecting the earth from evil forces.

And following right after is Spider-Man: No Way Home which is by far the most popular one that came out in 2021. It even stacked up with the likes of Avengers: Infinity War and Endgame, as well as other standalone titles like Black Panther and Captain America.

Next up, in 2022 will be the release of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Benedict Cumberbatch is back as Doctor Strange and he returns to fight a new enemy named Nightmare. Along with fighting, there will also be some romantic tension between Strange and his long-time love, Clea. This movie will be directed by Scott Derrickson who has previously worked on “Doctor Strange” (2016). 

Following right after is Thor: Love and Thunder. This movie will see the return of Natalie Portman as Jane Foster. She will be playing the female Thor. This is exciting, especially since this is the first time in MCU history that a female has taken on such an important role.

And finally the year 2022 will be closed by the release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. The first Black Panther was such a huge success that it would be foolish not to make a sequel. Ryan Coogler has hinted that he might return to direct the sequel.

Another exciting movie is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. This movie might not be released until the end of 2022 or sometime in 2023 but it is on the list so its accuracy is at least going to be a hit or miss, but not too far off. The first Guardians of the Galaxy was one of Marvel’s more light-hearted efforts and it paid off very well. The second movie, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” was even more successful than the first one. It is expected that this third film will be lighter than its predecessor and will continue to expand upon the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Also, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania are also scheduled to be released in 2023, which fans believed will kick in the initial “grand scale” battle similar to the Avengers trilogy back in the day.

For 2021-2023, fans are expecting a new movie in Phase 4 of the MCU. Marvel has indicated that there will be many new characters being introduced in the coming year and also a crossover between titles is highly speculated. The list above does not even include other major characters rumored to be introduced like Blade, The Marvels, Moon Knight, and many more.

With such a massive success of the Infinity Saga, Marvel has a lot of homework to do. Fans have been treated so well over the past decade that some even say Marvel has peaked at Avengers: Infinity War and that any other titles moving forward will automatically have a high standard to reach. For this, regardless of how the actual movies will turn out, fans will always win as they will get to see their beloved universe expanding even more, and with the great hand behind the director’s camera still in charge.
