From announcing Captain America 4: A New World Order to addressing MCU’s multiverse saga after unveiling Black Panther: Wakanda Forever as the completion of Phase 4 that leads up to Phase 6’s Fantastic Four – Marvel Studios’ Hall-H panel at SDCC 2022 dominated every major announcement from other studios at the Comic-Con event. In fact, Marvel fans are still reeling from the sheer excitement after witnessing Kevin Feige’s vision that leads up to the next ensemble Avengers flick.
With Marvel’s Hall-H panel done and dusted, Feige’s roadmap for the Marvel Cinematic Universe is already causing waves across social media. For starters, Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania will kick off Phase 5 with titles namely Secret Invasion, Loki season 2, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Blade and Echo following in its footsteps. Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel sequel, The Marvels, Ironheart, Agatha: Coven of Chaos, Charlie Cox’s Daredevil Born Again and Anthony Mackie’s Captain America: New World Order will conclude MCU Phase 5.
Also, Marvel Studios’ Suicide Squad-type villain team-up, Thunderbolts is confirmed to arrive on July 26, 2024. It’s reportedly expected to feature Baron Zemo, Ghost, U.S. Agent, Abomination and more. The Mahershala Ali starrer Blade landed a November 3, 2023 release date, the re-titled Agatha series featuring WandaVision’s Kathryn Hahn is scheduled for winter 2023.
Meanwhile, Captain America 4, though still a long way from arriving in theatres – got an official logo reveal with the confirmation it’s in development. Other Phase 5 movies and TV shows were treated with new logos as well. The stacked announcements has left Marvel fandom staggering as shown in some of the reactions below.
Fans: "I'm sorry, but I think I'm done with the MCU. I'm just not feeling Phase Four."

Incredible presentation. They always know how to bring the house down, even when you’re not in attendance. #MCU #SDCC

It’s crazy how good a Marvel movie can look when they hire a real director to direct one of these things. They should try it more often. Wasn’t sure what they were going to do without Chadwick but looks like Coogler pulled it off https://t.co/gFFXFJTPm9

Remember when some people were saying the MCU had no direction? They've been pretty silent tonight. #MarvelSDCC

I honestly don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that this is already the best looking MCU film. https://t.co/LsHlV0Zwta

I haven’t had much enthusiasm for MCU stuff for several years but that Wakanda Forever trailer is, like, really really good

Aside from the big announcements, The Cox’s Daredevil cameo in She-Hulk was also confirmed in the new She-Hulk trailer. Speaking of, Daredevil: Born Again will be an 18-episode series with Vincent D’Onofrio confirmed to reprise as Wilson Wisk, set to arrive in Spring 2024.
Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania panel saw Feige, Paul Rudd, Kathryn Newton, the MCU’s new Cassie Lang – address announcements related to the threequel flick with an SDCC exclusive footage screening. Jonathan Majors was introduced to the stage as Kang the conqueror after seeing his character in the footage. In addition, MODOK was confirmed to be part of Quantumania as well as Billy Murray’s involvement.
James Gunn took the stage for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 along with Chris Pratt, Sean Gunn, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementioff, Will Poulter and Maria Bakalova. If that wasn’t enough – Chukuwudi Iwuji shocked attendees by coming out in the High Evolutionary costume. An emotional cast spoke to the Hall-H crowd and though a trailer was screened, it hasn’t been released yet. A trailer description revealed that Vol. 3 introduces Baby Rocket Raccoon.
Arriving to Phase 6, Fantastic Four will be the first film and is scheduled to release on November 8, 2024. The Incredible panel concluded with the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever presentation, which began with a live musical performance. An emotional cast & crew, Letitia Wright, Winston Duke and the rest of the cast with director Ryan Coogler, paid homage to Chadwick Boseman after arriving on stage. Tenoch Huerta’s Ironheart and Dominique Thorne’s Namor the submariner were among the cast on the Hall-H stage.
A two-minute trailer is out and reveals Michaela Coel starring as Aneka, scenes of Okoye (Danai Gurira), M’Baku, The Dora Milaje in combat fighting against enemy forces, Namor and his Atlantis warriors also in the middle of what seems like a power struggle in the kingdom of Wakanda following King T’Challa’s death.
Clearly, Marvel Studios has the next three years planned out though it will require a lot of heavy lifting to execute the connectivity that MCU is known for since laying the founding brick with Iron Man. So what did you think of Marvel’s Phase 5 & 6 slate? Let us know in the comments below.
