Marvel Studios exposed its whole Phase 5 slate for the Marvel Cinematic Universe during Comic-Con 2022– however Kevin Feige took things an action further by teasing fans with the starts of the MCU Stage 6, also. At the time of composing this (prior to D23 2022) Marvel has exposed that Great Four will be the first movie in Phase 6, showing up in November of 2024. We likewise understand that Phase 6 will end with 2 huge event films: Avengers: The Kang Dynasty in summer 2025, and Avengers: Secret Wars in November of 2025.
Between the start and end of Stage 6 there are eight other projects on the slate– and they might can be found in any mix of movies and TV shows. Below we speculate on likely prospects for MCU Stage 6– see our best guesses and then let us understand yours!
What Marvel Movies and Television Shows are in MCU Stage 6?
Wonderful Four (November 8, 2024)
CONFIRMED: Marvel’s first household The Fantastic 4 will debut in the MCU to kick off Phase 6. Spider-Man Home Trilogy director Jon Watts was set to direct however left, and Marvel Studios is now apparently looking for a big-name director for F4.
We know Wonderful Four will not be an origin story, and based on Marvel Comics, the F4 film could link directly with both Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Secret Wars. Not a bad way to make an entryway!

The MCU has actually been developing this team of next-generation Young Avengers considering that the beginning of Phase Four (Billy and Tommy Maximoff, Kate Bishop, Kid Loki, Ms. Marvel, Elijah Bradley …), and a great deal of fans have been wondering when the team will formally take shape. There is a great deal of proof on the table that MCU Stage 5 will be a ‘Villains Rising’ arc that sees bad people on both Earth and in the cosmos trying to fill the voids of power left by Thanos and/or The Avengers. If that holds true, then Earth won’t have many of its “Mightiest Heroes” available anymore. A new generation of Avengers will need to step up– and Phase 6 may have one extra Avengers film (or television series?) surprise for us. Nova

It was reported that Marvel is dealing with a Nova job– but when it will arrive has actually not been validated. Given the cosmic shakeups we expect in Stage 5 projects like Secret Invasion and The Marvels, Nova would possibly be about a new young hero from Earth entering the middle of cosmic strife.

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings was among the most significant hits of MCU Stage 4, and a great deal of fans want that follow up movie. We understand director Destin Daniel Cretton will be hectic with Avengers: The Kang Dynasty for completion of Phase 6; however we likewise know that Shang-Chi ended by making the Ten Rings potentially essential things of power in the MCU. Getting more of how Shang-Chi (Simu Liu) and his 10 Rings suit the Multiverse Saga may be essential prior to the occasions of Secret Wars unfold. So Shang-Chi 2 in Phase 6 is a fair bet.

There’s also been word of a 10 Rings series following Shang’s sis, Xialing (Meng’er Zhang) as she takes over the company after her dad, Wenwu. This is far from an assurance, but if Shang-Chi’s story arc is going to be key to the Multiverse Legend, this 10 Rings series might assist flesh it out.

The Iron Guy franchise tradition will initially get picked up by Riri Williams in Phase 5’s Ironheart series– however Don Cheadle’s Rhodey (aka War Device) will step up to honor Tony Stark’s legacy of peace in the Armor Wars series. The title is a recommendation to the famous Iron Man story wear Tony hounds and ruins all the wicked opponents running in armor based upon StarkTech. If Phase 5 sees the MCU villains getting significant upgrades, Rhodey handling the mission to take wartime tech out of the wrong hands could be essential.
Moon Knight Season 2

The supernatural and magical side of the MCU will get more established in Stage 5 through the Blade motion picture and Agatha: Coven of Mayhem television series– so Moon Knight Season 2 in Stage 6 would be timely. We already have suspicions that Oscar Isaac is returning to work Moon Knighting, and there are all sorts of enjoyable crossovers that could occur while Marc Spector and Steven Grant unravel the secret of their third personality, Jake Lockley.
No one made certain if Marvel would be continuing with this franchise after its really rocky start, however recently there was soft verification that a follow up is in the works. Phase 6 would be our best option for when Eternals 2 would show up.
The concern of whether the MCU will get a main X-Men group before or after The Multiverse Legend is uncertain. We understand that we’ll likely see more stunt cameos like Patrick Stewart’s Prof. X in Medical Professional Strange 2 – however whether Marvel Studios will devote to a full-fledged X-Men movie prior to Phase 7 is extremely uncertain.
However, since Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool 3 will likely be arriving in Stage 5, we need to keep the possibility open that an X-Men Universe movie or series will belong to Phase 6. Possibilities include spinoffs like a brand-new Wolverine MCU film, or the reported “The Mutants” film that would officially present the mutant race in the MCU.Spider-Man Sequel(Photo: Sony Pictures/ Marvel Studios)Tom Holland’s Spider-Man has actually gotten a reset of sorts within the MCU, and is truly a street-level hero now. The next chapter of Spider-Man’s story appears well-suited for Stage 6, when villains like Kingpin and The Hood might be managing the NYC streets, making Spider-Man’s community tasks a lot more difficult. Thor 5(Photo: Marvel Studios) Thor: Love and Thunder developed a brand-new status quo for Thor Odinson(Chris Hemsworth)
as”Thunder,”dealing with his embraced child “Love.”A post-credits scene likewise set up a godly civil war in between Olympus and Asgard. That story has to continue at some point– summertime 2025 could be the time that Marvel sneaks in a Thor film to disturb the godly order prior to Secret Wars(and its possible army of Thor versions). The Protectors (Photo: Netflix )Daredevil: Born Again could be a huge turn in Stage 5, if Kingpin takes power and leaves
Daredevil on the ropes. Matt Murdock(Charlie Cox)could need considerable assistance holding the hero line in the streets– and the rest of Netflix’s Protectors roster are still there waiting in the wings for another team-up. This time, however, there are any number of additional MCU characters that might be contributed to this brand-new variation of The Defenders idea. Avengers: The Kang Dynasty (May 2, 2025)(Photo: Marvel Studios )This appears like another Avengers: Infinity War in the sense that it will likely make the archvillain of the Multiverse Saga(Jonathan Majors’Kang )the focus of much of the
movie. Kang’s story in the comics is typically a
sci-fi head-trip of time travel and variant timelines and selves, which have actually shaped occasions in the Marvel Multiverse (and the lives of its heroes )in sometimes stunning methods. Avengers: The Kang Dynasty may see the evil conqueror lastly achieve his objective of either being master of all realities, or shaping his own reality (Battleworld) out of pieces of the shattered multiverse. Avengers: Secret Wars(November 7, 2025)( Picture: Marvel Studios)Marvel Secret Wars occasions take damaged pieces of Marvel truth and mash them together into one amalgamated truth referred to as Battleworld. The MCU variation in Avengers:
Secret Wars will certainly be different, however core concept is expected to be the exact same
: the multiverse gets obliterated, and the only making it through fragments of truth (and its various characters)need to battle to make it through and ideally repair work presence. The end of Secret Wars is anticipated to efficiently reboot the MCU into a brand-new reality that Marvel can occupy( and recast)to its liking.
