Following the climactic ending to the Infinity Saga with Avengers: Endgame, which saw the satisfying conclusion of many iconic character arcs and storylines, it was hard to imagine where MCU could lead next. Now in its fourth phase, the MCU shows no plans of slowing down, especially when Marvel Studios executive Victoria Alonso recently shared that fans should “hang on tight” for what is coming.
Beginning with WandaVisionMarvel Studios’ first original series for Disney Plus, phase four continues to be the MCU’s most expansive phase yet, as it features more cosmic related stories and characters as well as the introduction of the multiverse, concepts that have no boundaries to what is possible with this long-running franchise.
Now speaking on the Despair America! talk show (via The Cosmic Circus), Alonso opened up about Marvel’s recent success and what fans can look forward to as phase four progresses. “The pandemic took away our ability to go to work, but it did not take away our ability to create. Last year, we produced 46 hours [of content]… Working on it from our homes, “Alonso shared.” Apart from that, we also worked on streaming, which we had never done before, [and] animation, which we had never done before. We premiered an entire [animated] series called What If…?, where we took all of our stories and changed those moments into others. Oscar Isaac is coming up now as our Moon Knight. He’s just absolutely wonderful. Now, between March and May… you all better hang on tight. “
Judging from her comments, it appears Moon Knight (which is set to release on March 30) and the next feature film, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (set for a May 6 release date), will have lasting implications for the rest of the MCU. Other than those two projects right around the corner, big sequel films like Thor: Love and Thunder, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, The Marvels, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3as well as series like She-Hulk, Ms. Marveland Secret Invasion are all expected to release roughly within the next year. On top of that, reboot projects for The Fantastic Four, X-Menand Blade will continue to introduce new characters into the MCU.
While it’s hard to tell what all the Marvel Studios content is leading towards, rumors have been brewing that a new one Avengers trilogy focusing on the Secret Wars comic storyline is in early development. For those who are unaware, Secret Wars featured a wide array of characters, as seen in previous Avengers films, but on a much bigger scale, as heroes and villains from separate universes unite for battle on a new world called Battleworld.
With the introduction of the Eternals as well as the original Avengers team passing the torch down to their successors (Yelena Belova taking over for Black Widow, Kate Bishop taking over for Hawkeye, Spider-Man for Iron Man, and so on), it makes perfect sense to have the new heroes gear up for their first crossover movie.
