MCU Phase 5 Slate:
Marvel revealed everything that’s coming out in Phase 4 at San Diego Comic-Con. In the next 2 years, we’re getting 10 MCU projects (11 if Sony also schedules Spider-Man 3). But what about the next Phase? Will it be 2 years long, or will we get a longer 3-4 year Phase? Feige already revealed 4 projects that we will most definitely be getting as a part of MCU Phase 5 as he did confirm that Black Panther 2, Captain Marvel 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 are under development.
Feige slipped in the fact that Phase 4 actually has 11 movies. After the Comic Con Panel, he revealed a few more details in an interview with MTV:
“We debated what we should announce today. Should we announce Phase Four and Five? We’ve planned them out, we’ve got five years down the road and I was like, I think eleven projects in two years is plenty having not mentioned anything for two or three years.”
A new tweet from a guy named Charles Murphy tweeted dates for 3 films in 2022, and he also gave a surprising date for 2024. Murphy is the same guy who revealed that a Shang-Chi movie is being made. He tweeted that February 18th, 2022 will bring us Black Panther 2 & May 6th, 2022 will bring us Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. June 29th, 2022 is still blank and logically, it should be the date for Ant-Man and the Wasp 3 or Spider-Man 3.
Always subject to change and still much we don’t know:
Phase 5, V2
Feb 18, 2022-Black Panther 2
May 6, 2022-GotG Vol. 3
July 29, 2022-
May 3 or 10, 2024-😮

Now, this schedule is quite obvious! Captain Marvel 2 should be the first film of 2023. It could either come out in March or February, depending upon the dates Marvel schedules beyond 2022. Blade will be another project that Marvel could release in 2023, or perhaps even July 29, 2022. Other possibilities for 2023 are Avengers 5 & a new Fantastic Four movie. Ant-Man and the Wasp 3 could directly lead us to Fantastic Four and those 2 films could be separated from each other by just 1 year.
Logically if you think about it, Marvel won’t have as much time to announce projects at D23 as they did at Comic-Con. They’d just get 1 hour and in that hour they will have to make their presentation. So they could either give us further details of all the Phase 4 projects or they could end up revealing a couple more projects from Phase 5. At least Black Panther 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will certainly be confirmed at D23 this month.
Even though 4 of the 6 Ogs are out, there are still about 16 more heroes that are still present, and more new ones have also been announced. Feige explained:
“Well, we got a Falcon and Winter Soldier show, we got a WandaVision show. We’re introducing Monica Rambeau in that WandaVision show… Wanda Maximoff, who is probably near the upper echelons of power — I contend she would have taken down Thanos if he hadn’t called the [army], it was done — so her being the Scarlet Witch now, as Lizzie said on stagein a full sort of unabashed power-based [way], coming into the Doctor Strange movie, that is two heroes coming together in a fun way.”
In the meanwhile, here’s the Phase 4 slate – Black Widow on May 1, 2020, The Falcon and The Winter Soldier in Fall 2020, The Eternals on November 6, 2020, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings on February 12, 2021, WandaVision in Spring 2021, Loki in Spring 2021, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness on May 7, 2021, What If? In Summer 2021, Hawkeye in Fall 2021, and Thor: Love and Thunder on November 5, 2021.
