Marvel fans would soon forget the disappointing experience they had with Phase Four which is about to end. In July, the Disney-owned company announced the rollout of Marvel Phase 5 and topped it with glimpses of Phase Six that will keep fans entertained for the next three years. Fans can expect a bagful of goodies commencing from 2023 as Marvel is set to reassert itself as the dominant pop culture TV/ movie franchise of the present day. The MCU Phase 5 announcements allowed Marvel fans to get the first look at things to come in the next three years that can wipe out the bad memories of Phase Four.
Marvel Phase 5 – Expect a more Complex Universe
Fans keen to know the Marvel Phase 5 release dates can take heart from the fact that it is starting May 2023 till May 2026. They could soak in endless entertainment from the movies and other presentations of Phase 5 and Phase 6 – The Infinite Saga. There could likely be a dozen movies and several Disney+ presentations and series. There would be a more complex universe, although it’s still unclear whether Avengers will make a comeback because of the lack of superheroes that was evident in Phase Four. The rollout of Phase five will end the current iterations of the Guardians of the Galaxy. We will see the introduction of powerful cosmic beings like Adam Warlock and Kang the Conqueror. On earth, the rogue Skrulls, combined with superhuman defenses and geopolitical power, will leave the Avengers base in a risky condition.
Schedule of Marvel Phase 5
Almost 6 months since Marvel announced the rollout of Phase 5 and 6, we now have the Marvel Phase 5 movies list that gives a clear picture of how things would unfold from February 2023.
Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania
Slated for release on February 17, 2023, fans would see Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lily, and their mates regrouping as the shrinking heroes in the Peyton reed directed Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Each of them would take a trip across the Quantum Realm as they face Kang the Conqueror, one of the strongest Marvel villains. It’s a heart-touching father-daughter story as Scott Lang attempts to make up for the time he was absent in Cassie’s life.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol: 3
Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol: 3, the concluding chapter, will release on May 5, 2023, as Peter Quill and Nebula keep trying to reunite with Gamma. In this last chapter, director James Gunn focuses mainly on Rocket Raccoon’s origin story. Together with Adam Warlock, the Guardians will take on the High Evolutionary, Rocket’s creator.
Queued up for July 28, 2023 release, the Nia DaCosta-directed movie sets the stage for the return of Carol Danvers after her cameo in Ms. Marvel. With Monica Rambeau and Kamala Khan by her side, she’s likely to return in Secret Invasion.
Captain America: New World Order, Thunderbolts, and Blade are the 2024 releases of Marvel Phase 5.
