Phases 5 and 6 of Marvel Studios: What Comic-Con Revealed Us About the Multiverse Saga

Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studios, came to Hall H three years after he did the same for Phase 4 of the Marvel Universe at San Diego Comic-Con to introduce Phase 5, which includes the new "Daredevil" Disney+ series and the "Thunderbolts" feature film. Feige also provided a small taste of what will be is included in Phase 6, which will end in November 2025 with the release of "Avengers: Secret Wars," which Feige claims ends the Multiverse Saga of the MCU.

Here is all we discovered about the remaining parts of Phases 4, and 5, and what is next in Phase 6.


Premiere date: Aug. 17

What we found: This Disney+ series, which stars Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters (Bruce Banner's cousin), is a legal comedy with "Fleabag" elements. It has a slew of superheroes who require a decent lawyer—who is also big and green. In opposition to much of the video shown in Hall H, the trailer for the panel was also made available to the public.

What we learned: Namor (Tenoch Huerta) will appear in the MCU as Wakanda bears the brunt of T'Challa (the late Chadwick Boseman). Dom Thorne (as Riri Williams), Michaela Coel (as Aneka), Mabel Cadena (as Namora), and Alex Livanalli are joining the cast (Attuma). Phase 4 will be bound up in this movie, however, it's not clear how. Here is the trailer.

Release date: Nov. 11


Release date:  17 Feb. 2023

What we found: Phase 5 signals the start of Kang the Warlord (Jonathan Majors), who finally comes into contact with Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) in the Quantum Realm after Scott, his daughter Cassie Lang (Kathryn Newton), Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), and Janet van Dyne are strangely sucked there (Michelle Pfeiffer). Bill Murray makes a brief cameo as an old friend of Janet's from the Quantum Realm in footage shown only in Hall H, but with Kang acting as the title role in one of the two "Avengers" films announced on Saturday (more below), all eyes are on how Majors will alter the MCU's story.

Premiere date: Spring 2023

What we learned: Co-star Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill) attended the viewing of this dark political thriller starring Ben Mendelsohn as Nick Fury, Martin Freeman as James Rhodes, Ben Mendelsohn as the Skrull Talos, and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury (Everett K. Ross). They are joined by Kingsley Ben-Adir, Olivia Colman, Emilia Clarke, and Tyson Fury. In a fight with Tyson Fury, Kingsley Ben-Adir can be seen multiplying into multiple identical forms (seen brandishing a gun). The whole mood of paranoia and fear add to a bigger anti-heroic thread that appears to run through Phase 5.

Release date: 5 May 2023

What we observed: The final Guardians movie's first trailer hinted at explaining how Rocket developed into a sentient, walking raccoon. Chris Pratt, Karen Gillan, Pom Klementieff, Sean Gunn, Will Poulter, and Maria Bakalova as Cosmo the Spacedog were among the cast members that shared this view. The High Evolutionary, played by Chukwudi Iwuji (previously of DC's "Peacemaker"), introduced himself to Hall H in character, indicating that he was involved in Rocket's change.

Premiere date: Summer 2023

What we found: Not much, only the start date for the show that will feature "Hawkeye" villain Maya Lopez (Alaqua Cox) in her own series. The film's directors are Sydney Freeland and Catriona McKenzie (Reservation Dogs, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, Shining Vale)

Premiere date: Summer 2023.

What we learned: The Disney+ series that gave the MCU its first taste of the multiverse is currently in production and will premiere in the summer of 2019. There was not a single mention of this widely respected series, but recently, online images from the set have been spreading.

Release date: 3 Nov 2023

What we learned: Feige did not make any casting news, but he did confirm that Mahershala Ali will star in the coming October remake of the Marvel comics vampires franchise, which was first revealed in 2019 in Hall H. The film's director is Bassam Tariq ("Mogul Mowgli").

Premiere date: Fall 2023

What we learned: Sophie Thorne's character Riri Williams will feature in her own Disney+ series after her introduction in "Black Panther: Wakanda Forever." Sam Bailey ("Dear White People") and Angela Barnes ("Blindspotting") are directing, with head writer Chinaka Hodge ("Amazing Stories," "Snowpiercer") acting as an executive producer.

Premiere date: Winter 2023/2024

What we observed: This "WandaVision" spinoff portraying Kathryn Hahn's Agatha Harkness, originally named "Agatha: House of Harkness," will be the final Marvel Disney+ series in 2023. Jac Schaefer, the lead writer of "WandaVision," will pen the script and serve as executive producer.
