The following two years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe were fully revealed at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, with a few tantalizing hints about what lies beyond. Phase 5 of the MCU kicks off with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, which comes to theaters on Feb. 17, 2023. It’ll be followed by the Disney Plus series Secret Invasion in spring 2023, before Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 hits theaters on May 5, 2023.
Echo and season 2 of Loki land on Disney Plus in summer 2023, with The Marvels coming to theaters on Jul. 28, 2023.
Ironheart comes to the streaming service in fall 2023, Blade lands in theaters Nov. 3, 2023, while Agatha: Coven of Chaos (previously named Agatha: House of Harkness) will arrive on Disney Plus in winter 2023 or 2024.
Captain America: New World Order comes to theaters on May 3, 2024, Daredevil: Born Again will hit Disney Plus in spring 2024, and Thunderbolts will round out Phase 5 when it lands on Jul. 26, 2024.
Marvel also gave us the first details about Phase 6 movies, including Fantastic Four on Nov. 8, 2024, Avengers: Kang Dynasty on May 2, 2025, and Avengers: Secret Wars on Nov. 7, 2025. In addition, it was revealed that Phases 4, 5, and 6 would be collectively known as The Multiverse Saga, mirroring Phases 1, 2, and 3’s Infinity Saga. It seems like Kang the Conqueror will be the main villain of this era, but perhaps a bigger baddy will emerge in the coming years.
Phase 5 and 6 Updates.
Fans are particularly excited about Charlie Cox returning as Daredevil, given the popularity of the Netflix show and his alter-ego’s brief appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Born Again will see him face off against Vincent D’Onofrio’s Wilson Fisk (who showed up in Hawkeye) and run for 18 episodes.
Daredevil also shows up — in costume — in the new trailer for She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, which kicks off on Disney Plus on Aug. 17. That and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which also got a Comic-Con trailer ahead of its Nov. 11 theatrical release, will represent the end of Phase 4.
Mysteriously absent from the Phase 5 lineup was Armor Wars, which will see the late Tony Stark’s tech falling into the wrong hands and Don Cheadle’s Jim Rhodes/War Machine having to deal with it. However, plenty of blank entries fill the Phase 6 lineup.
On Friday, Marvel revealed a bunch of animated series coming to Disney Plus over the next few years. What If…? season 2, Marvel Zombies, and Spider-Man: Freshman Year is part of the MCU canon, while X-Men ’97 and I Am Groot is seemingly set in separate continuities.
