What we learned: A legal comedy with a twist of “Fleabag,” this Disney+ series starring Tatiana Maslany as Jennifer Walters (i.e. Bruce Banner’s cousin) features a cast of superheroes who need a good lawyer – who’s also giant and green.

Release date: February 17, 2023

In footage shown only in Hall H, Bill Murray has a cameo as an old acquaintance of Janet from Inside the Quantum Realm, but given Kang’s titular role in one of the “Avengers” titles announced Saturday (more below), how will the Majors remake MCU listing. Additionally, director Peyton Reed assured audiences that another great Marvel villain would be making a cameo in this movie, “You might have seen a shot of Modoc,” Reed said.

“Secret Invasion”
premiere date: Spring 2023

What we learned: Co-star Cobie Smulders (Maria Hill) was in attendance to preview this dark and gritty political thriller, which stars Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, alongside Ben Mendelsohn (Scroll Talos), Don Cheadle (James Rhodes), and Martin Freeman. (Everett K. Ross). They are joined by Kingsley Ben Adair (seen doubling up in several identical poses in a confrontation with Fury), Olivia Colman (seen telling Fury he’s out of his head) and Emilia Clarke (seen waving a gun). The general atmosphere is one of paranoia and pessimism, contributing to a larger anti-championship thread that appears to be running through Phase Five.

“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3”
Release date: May 5, 2023

What we learned: Passionate James Gunn and his equally passionate cast — including Chris Pratt, Karen Gillan, Bom Klementiev, Sean Gunn, Will Poulter, and Maria Bakalova as Cosmo the Spacedog — get their first look at the final Guardians movie, which hinted at revealing how a rocket became Conscious raccoon walks. Chukwudi Iwuji (formerly DC’s “Peacemaker”) plays High Evolutionary, introducing himself to Hall H in the character (which means he played a role in Rocket’s transformation).

premiere date: Summer 2023

Daredevil: Born Again
premiere date: Spring 2024

What we learned: Released as part of the Netflix slate of the Marvel TV series (which was nominally part of the MCU), Charlie Cox’s Matt Murdock (in full) was brought to Marvel Studios with the Disney+ series taking an unprecedented 18-episode order for its first season. Cox’s Murdock debuted in 2021 with “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” and antagonist Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio) appears as the big bad in the 2021 film Hawkeye. Both characters are set to appear on “Echo,” and it appears that Daredevil will also appear on “She-Hulk,” before returning to the main event in the series.

On Netflix, “Daredevil” has been more violent and gory than anything Marvel Studios has produced directly, which also suggests that Phase 5 of the MCU will dive deeper into moral ambiguity than ever before.

Captain America: New World Order
Release date: May 3, 2024

What we learned: We’ve known since the conclusion of the Disney+ series “The Falcon and the Winter Soldier” that Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) will be returning in his feature film Captain America. At Hall H, Feige announced the eyebrow-raising title – More Anxiety and Awe! A release date gives the film the number one spot in the Marvel 2024 movie list.

“Lightning”
Release date: 25 July 2024

What we learned: Phase 5 ends with Marvel answering DC’s Suicide Squad: a team movie about a group of anti-MCU heroes. Feige said he’ll talk about his acting choice another day, but there are plenty of nominees already, including Valentina Allegra de Fontaine (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), Baron Zemo (Daniel Bruhl), Jelena Belova (Florence Beau), Jost (Hannah John Kamen). ), the abomination (Tim Roth), John Walker (White Russell), and Task Manager (Olga Kurylenko).

Stage 6

“Awesome 4”
Release date: November 8, 2024

What we learned: While “Spider-Man: No Way Home” movie maker John Watts recently walked away from directing “Fantastic 4,” Marvel Studios is going all-out in bringing the original Stan Lee/Jack Kirby Marvel comic book series to the MCU. The Fantastic Four and main villain Victor Von Doom play important roles in the comic book inspiration for the final movie in the Multiverse Saga, so launching Phase 6 with them makes sense.

what or what he is Surprisingly, the entirety of stage 6 takes less than a year.

“Avengers: Kang Dynasty”
Release date: May 2, 2025

What we learned: Similar to how Avengers: Infinity War set up “Avengers: Endgame,” Feige explained that Phase 6 of the MCU — and the Multiverse Saga — will conclude with the two “Avengers” movies. Looking at the title, it’s safe to assume that Kang the Conqueror of Majors is Thanos (or maybe a Thanos) from the multiverse saga.

“Avengers: Secret Wars”
Release date: November 7, 2025

What we learned: After many fans — and some entertainment publications — wondered aloud this year as to exactly where the MCU is headed, Feige took the time at Hall H to finally say: Here it is.

“Secret Wars” refers to a Marvel Comics miniseries from 2015 that includes an incursion between the main Marvel universe (Earth-616) and the Ultimate Marvel universe (Earth-1610) resulting in destroy both. In its wake, many variants of Marvel characters find themselves living in a post-apocalyptic planet called Battleworld.

It’s unclear, and will remain so for some time, how much Marvel Studios will make from 2015’s Secret Wars series — or the mid-1980s Secret Wars series that inspired it. But perhaps the most important detail is what happened after, after Secret Wars: Marvel Studios has effectively rebooted, releasing “all-new and different” versions of many of its beloved titles, with some (but not all) characters from the 616 and 1610 worlds finding themselves living in the remastered timeline.

Could it be the same in the MCU store? Only time (the lines) will tell.
