Marvel’s MCU Phase 6
Once Phase 5 is wrapped up, it will be followed by Fantastic Four and two Avengers movies dubbed Avengers: Secret Wars and Avengers: The Kang Dynasty that will be a part of Phase 6. As said, Phase 4 through 6 are a part of Marvel’s Multiverse Saga where we will see heroes and characters from other movies in these titles as well.
When it comes to dates, the Fantastic Four will debut in theatres on November 28th, 2024. The Avengers: The Kang Dynasty will follow it on May 2nd, 2025. There’s another movie ‘Avengers: Secret Wars’ that will make it to the theatre on November 7th, 2025 marking the closure of Phase 6.
However, that’s not the end of Phase 6. Apparently, Marvel has left eight untitled spots in this phase that spans from 2024 to 2025 so could arrive with some more projects as well.
She-Hulk: Attorney at Law – a Disney+ series
There’s more than what meets the eye. Amidst all the titles discussed above, MCU has other projects under the banner too. She-Hulk: Attorney at Law is a Disney+ show starring Mark Ruffalo and Tatiana Maslany playing the roles of Hulk and She-Hulk, of course.
The nine-episode Disney+ series will start streaming on August 17 and will show both Bruce Benner and his cousin Jennifer Walters in a quest to find her strength through rigorous training by none other than the Hulk himself. Of course, the series is also a part of MCU’s Multiverse Saga and it is evident in the scene with Shang-Chi and Daredevil before the trailer cuts off. Also, there are the fourth wall breaks too so that’s something you would love as an MCU fan.
She-Hulk was announced at the SDCC along with movies such as Captain America: New World Order. Blade, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Loki Season 2, among others. We saw trailers for I am Groot as well along with the upcoming Spider-Man: Freshman Year and X-Men ‘97 so there’s a lot to watch from Marvel for years to come.
Daredevil is getting a second season
After breaking up with Netflix, Daredevil is coming back with the season with Disney+ just like most of the MCU projects out there. Dubbed ‘Daredevil: Born Again’, the season will star Vincent D’Onofrio as the Kingpin and Charlie Cox as the Daredevil just like the original season. Its streaming date isn’t out yet although it will arrive sometime in the spring of 2024.
MCU Phase 6 Predictions
Since there are at least eight untitled spots available within Phase 6 of the MCU, there are endless possibilities for projects that could see the light of the day. Some of the projects that are heavily rumoured are Armor Wars, Shang-Chi, Ms Marvel Season 2, Spider-Man 4, and Doctor Strange 3 among others.
