Marvel Announced Multiple New Shows & Films In The Multiverse Saga! Here’s Everything You Need To Know

Marvel

MCU fans have a lot to rejoice over as the Marvel Studios President, Kevin Feige introduced The Multiverse Saga at the recently-held San Diego Comic-Con. It consists of all the upcoming films and Disney+ shows from Phase Four, Five, and Six. Fans got a preview of its development slate during its star-studded presentation, and boy does it look exciting! Some of these are dropping this year and others between 2023-2025 including two Avengers films that will close the Multiverse Saga in 2025. We get it tho; it’s hard to keep up with this information overload. If you’re having a hard time navigating through which phase is currently going on, or what the term “phase” means in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we break it down for you ahead.

Pay attention–every Marvel film and TV show is related to one another, like a chapter in a book. These chapters are called “phases.” Three phases make one saga. The Infinity Saga closed with The Avengers: Endgame, which also put an end to Phase 3. Keeping up? Great. Now, we’re already in The Multiverse Saga, which means Phase 4 is already underway. ICYMI, Phase 4 started with Disney+ shows WandaVision, Loki, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and Hawkeye, interspersed with movies Black Widow, Spider-Man: No Way Home, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and Thor: Love & Thunder. This is followed by the show Ms. Marvel and the upcoming series I Am Groot and She-Hulk. It will close with the theatric release of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

Ahead, we continue to go a bit more in-depth about the upcoming shows and films across all three phases and beyond.

Phase Four:

I Am Groot (Series)

The hero of a few words returns in the collection of five original shorts. The series follows the life of Guardians of the Galaxy’s Baby Groot, navigating his “glory days growing up, and getting into trouble, among the stars.”

Releasing on August 10, 2022

She-Hulk: Attorney at Law (Series)

It’s been more than a decade since we’ve had a solo Hulk film. Now, we finally get a show but it doesn’t centre around Bruce Banner. Instead, it follows the life of his cousin Jennifer Walters. Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany will be playing the green goliath in the upcoming She-Hulk, an accomplished lawyer who on getting an emergency blood transfusion from Bruce turns into the green superhero. Jameela Jamil, Ginger Gonzaga and Renée Elise Goldsberry also join the cast, besides Mark Ruffalo. And the end of the trailer also gives a glimpse of Daredevil’s appearance. Exciting, for sure!

Releasing on August 17, 2022

Untitled Marvel Halloween Special

There’s an untitled Halloween Special due to release this year. It might take inspiration from the comic Warewolf by Night. We literally have no idea but can you sense the excitement?

Releasing in October 2022

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

It’s going to be extremely tough to watch this film without Chadwick Boseman. Nothing has been officially said about who will be the next Black Panther. But we must say, the first teaser of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever pays a gut-wrenching yet beautiful tribute to the late actor. It shows T’challa (Chadwick’s) demise and appears to give him a near-perfect sendoff. You also see characters from the first film in the teaser. Black Panther 2 will mark the end of Phase 4.

Releasing on November 11, 2022

The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special

Writer/director James Gunn confirmed that this special is set in between the events of Thor: Love and Thunder and the third Guardians movie. It will have details leading to Vol. 3.

Releasing in Holiday Season 2022

Phase Five:

Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania

Kickstarting Phase Five is the next Ant-Man film, a highly anticipated one due to its impact on the multiverse. Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang is currently savouring the moment of being one of the heroes who saved the world. But all that goes flying out the window when his daughter Cassie follows in his criminal footsteps. He takes her under his wing and Cassie finds herself in an Ant-Man and the Wasp adventure with the whole Pym-Van Dyne family stuck in the Quantum Realm. But the interesting bit is that this film will feature the new villain,  Kang the Conquerer aka MODOK, played by Jonathan Majors. We were first introduced to Majors’ He Who Remains at the end of Loki who claimed to have set the path for all the happenings so far. Kang is one of the variants of He Who Remains and is suspected to be the next Thanos-level threat.
