Kevin Feige and Marvel recently revealed a lot about the current and upcoming phases in the MCU. In particular, the announcement of phase 6 put fans in an uproar. There you will find a “Fantastic 4” movie for November 2024 and above all “Avengers 5: The Kang Dynasty” and “Avengers 6: Secret Wars” in May or November 2025. But all about all these top-class artists there were huge gaps in Kevin Feige’s presentation for at least eight titles, which are obviously already planned, but which one does not want to reveal just yet. Our Marvel expert Sebastian tries to fill these in his video.
After all, there are some projects that have not yet been scheduled. On the one hand, we have several series for Disney+. been announced for a long time “Armor Wars” Starring Don Cheadle as “War Machine” James Rhodey. The series is supposed to be about Iron Man’s old technology falling into the wrong hands. Many of Tony Stark’s old suits should also celebrate their comeback. Disney also teased this with the hint that the longing for more “Iron Man” was satisfied by many fans with the series.

A series has also been announced that introduces a completely new hero: “Wonder Man” could be a new leader for us Avengers present and would therefore be perfectly positioned around “The Kang Dynasty” and “Secret Wars”. However, we are currently putting a small question mark behind this series. Because she is supposed to be responsible for “Shang-Chi” director Destin Daniel Cretton, who also “Avengers 5” power. Will he find time for both projects or will Wonder Man be pushed further back?
In a series we could also Richard Rider aka Nova explore. There’s also a good theory here as to why Marvel has yet to make an official announcement for Phase 6. Because the character with its cosmic origin actually fits perfectly with the Guardians Of The Galaxy. In their first cinematic adventures we already saw his home planet Xandra and the Nova Corps. Richard Rider is the last survivor of this world where the Guardians are known to have met. A first brief reference to him or even an appearance would fit perfectly with “Guardians Of The Galaxy 3”, so you might have to wait and see before actually making an announcement .
In phase 6 there will of course not only be series in addition to the three well-known projects, but also several cinema films per year. A candidate is “Deadpool 3”, which is already being worked on. If the author of these lines had to bet, he would see the first film with Ryan Reynolds as the cheeky mercenary in the MCU at a free phase 5 date in February 2024.
More promising candidates for phase 6 are many sequels that could still come: “Eternals 2”, “Shang Chi 2” and especially “Doctor Strange 3” are to be mentioned. Especially the latter seems very important to the end credits scene of “Doctor Strange Incursions teased in The Multiverse Of MadnessAvengers 6” will then certainly become very important.
As Sebastian in his video on the possible new compilation of the Avengers has already explained, there are now so many characters that other teams have to be formed. So maybe we can see them Midnight Sons with dark guys like Blade (Mahershala Ali), Moon Knight (Oscar Isaac) or Black Knight (Kit Harington)? And you will find all the young heroes that have already been introduced and those that are still to come as Young Avengers together?
Somewhere in phase 6 or already phase 5 we can expect another “Spider-Man” movie with Tom Holland. It’s not up to Kevin Feige to announce it here, so he doesn’t take up a slot in his timeline presentation. “Spider-Man 4” is still a Sony production and will then be scheduled by the studio – certainly in consultation with Feige – in between.
At a much-anticipated trade fair, there shouldn’t be a “Spider-Man 4” announcement either. but a lot of Marvel news is still likely to be awaited by fans at Disney’s D23 Expo, which will take place from September 9th to 11th. The wealth of information at Comic-Con recently came as a surprise, as it was expected that Marvel would save most of it for Disney’s own show. Now you will not want to stink completely against it at your in-house exhibition.
It is quite possible that – as Sebastian speculates – there will simply be another wave of title announcements and the gaps from phase 6 will be filled, so you have simply saved a second round for the D23. The author of these lines thinks so more likely that your own fair will focus less on titles and more on staff presentations, i.e. announcing directorships and, above all, unveiling new and returning actors. Because you can keep surprise guests better secret at your own trade fair than at Comic-Con, which is organized by a third party.
