In Hall H-only footage, Bill Murray makes a cameo appearance as an old acquaintance of Janet’s from the Quantum Realm, but with Kang’s lead role in one of two Avengers titles announced Saturday (more below), everyone’s looking at how the Majors will change MCU storytelling.

Premiere date: Spring 2023
What we have learned: Co-star Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill) attended a preview of this dark and hard-hitting political thriller, which stars Samuel L.

They are joined by Kingsley Ben-Adir (seen reproducing into several identical forms in the confrontation with Fury), Olivia Colman (seen telling Fury that his prime is over) and Emilia Clarke (seen brandishing a gun).

Release date: May 5, 2023
What we have learned: The emotional James Gunn and his equally emotional cast, including Chris Pratt, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Sean Gunn, Will Poulter and Maria Bakalova as Cosmo the Space Dog, debuted a first look at the final Guardians film that hinted on revealing how Rocket became a sentient walking raccoon. Chukwudi Iwuji (a former member of DC’s “Peacemaker”) plays the High Evolutionary and introduced himself to Hall X as a character (implying that he had a role in Rocket’s transformation).
Premiere date: Summer 2023

Loki season 2
Premiere date: Summer 2023
What we have learned: The Disney+ series that introduced the MCU multiverse is currently filming and will debut next summer. There hasn’t been a single mention of this critically acclaimed series, but pictures from the set have been making their way around the internet lately.
Release date: November 3, 2023
What we have learned: Feige hasn’t announced a casting call, but has confirmed that the reboot of Marvel’s vampire comic book franchise starring Mahershala Ali, first announced in 2019 in Hall H, will be Marvel’s last feature film in 2023, with filming starting in October. Bassam Tariq (Mogul Mowgli) is directing.

Premiere date: Spring 2024
What we have learned: An original launched as part of Netflix’s roster of Marvel series (which were nominally part of the MCU), Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock is (in full) being brought into the Marvel Studios fold with the Disney+ series getting an unprecedented 18-episode order. for your first season. Cox’s Murdoch first appeared in 2021’s Spider-Man: No Home, while his nemesis the Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio) appeared as a big villain in 2021’s Hawkeye. Both characters are set to appear in Echo, and it looks like Daredevil will also appear in She-Hulk before returning to that series’ main event.
On Netflix, the Daredevil series was much more violent and gory than anything produced directly by Marvel Studios, which suggests once again that Phase 5 of the MCU will plunge into moral darkness deeper than ever before.
“Captain America: New World Order”
Release date: May 3, 2024
What we have learned: Since the end of the Disney+ series The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, we’ve known that Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) will be returning in his own feature film as Captain America. In Hall H, Feige announced the surprising title – More Anxiety and Fear! — and a release date that puts the film at the top of Marvel’s 2024 movie list.
Release date: July 25, 2024
What we have learned: Phase 5 ends with Marvel’s answer to DC’s Suicide Squad: A film about a group of MCU anti-heroes. Feige said he would talk about casting another time, but there are already many candidates, including Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (Julie Louis-Dreyfus), Baron Zemo (Daniel Brühl), Elena Belova (Florence Pugh), Phantom (Hannah John- Kamen). ), The Abomination (Tim Roth), John Walker (Wyatt Russell) and Taskmaster (Olga Kurylenko).
Release date: November 8, 2024
What we have learned: While Spider-Man: No Way Home director Jon Watts recently stepped down from directing Fantastic 4, Marvel Studios is pushing Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s original Marvel comic book series into the MCU at full speed. The Fantastic Four and main villain Victor Von Doom play a crucial role in the comics that inspired the final movie of the Multiverse saga, so launching Phase 4 with them makes sense.
which is surprisingly, the entire launch of Phase 6 lasts less than a year.
“Avengers: The Kang Dynasty”
Release date: May 2, 2025
What we have learned: Just as Avengers: Infinity War created Avengers: Endgame, Feige has made it clear that MCU Phase 6 – and the Multiverse saga – will end with two Avengers movies. Given the name, it’s safe to assume that Kang the Conqueror from the Majors is Thanos (or maybe a Thanos from the Multiverse saga.
“Avengers: Secret Wars”
Release date: November 7, 2025
What we have learned: After many fans – and some entertainment outlets – wondered out loud this year exactly where the MCU is heading, Feige took the time in Hall H to finally say, “Here.
“Secret Wars” points to a 2015 Marvel Comics crossover mini-series that follows an invasion between the mainstream Marvel Universe (Earth-616) and the Ultimate Marvel Universe (Earth-1610) leading to destruction of both. As a result, many variants of Marvel characters end up living on a post-apocalyptic planet called Battleworld.
It’s unclear, and will be for some time, how much Marvel Studios will take from 2015’s Secret Wars or the mid-1980s Secret Wars miniseries that inspired it. But perhaps the most important detail is what happened after Secret Wars: Marvel Studios has actually rebooted by launching “brand new, completely different” versions of many of its most beloved games, as some (but not all) characters from the 616 and 1610 universes found themselves living in a somewhat rebooted timeline.
Could the same be in the MCU store? Only time (lines) will tell.
