Phase 5 Blowing the Multiversal Doors Open
After three years without Comic-Con, Marvel Studios has officially lifted the lid of the convention center located in San Diego.
Nine of the confirmed projects as part of Phase 5 had already been previously announced in prior announcements and events, starting with the wild Multiversal adventure in Ant-Man and The Wasp Quantumania. Moving between the cosmic distances of outer space (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.) up to intense action on the ground (Echo as well as Ironheart) It appears the MCU has no plans in the near future.
Despite the disappointment of the knowledge that films such as Fantastic Four won’t arrive until the sixth phase there’s plenty of interesting stories particularly when you consider the recent confirmation at Comic-Con.
Charlie Cox and Vincent D’Onofrio have been confirmed to break the mold in the MCU, along alongside Daredevil: The Reborn and finally letting Man Without Fear fully evolve under the Marvel Studios umbrella. Add in the first movie of their own featuring Anthony Mackie’s Sam Wilson and an eagerly anticipated team-up with the MCU’s Thunderbolts and it’s evident that Marvel will not slow down even for a second.
All this will happen as the middle portion of the recently announced Multiverse Saga, the MCU’s exciting new slate of projects that will carry on the story that was the Inifinity Saga started as far back in 2008. The only thing that remains is future time as well as space can reveal which other characters join the fray.
The fifth phase of the MCU will officially start by airing Ant-Man, along with The Wasp: Quantumania on the 17th of February 2023.
