Marvel Phase 4

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is the most successful film franchise of all time, having grossed more than $18 billion worldwide — $4 billion of which it made in 2018 alone — and now owning the title of highest-grossing movie of all time with Endgame, announced its incredible Marvel Phase 4 plans at Comic-Con, the franchise shows no signs of slowing down. Especially with Disney finally confirming three new MCU TV shows for its upcoming Disney Plus streaming service, and five new films in the next two and half years.

As the Infinity Saga came to a close this year, we celebrated the badass women of the the Marvel universe with the release Captain Marvel, and now we have a new look at what awaits us in the next phase of the MCU, including some in-canon shows.

That’s right, thanks to the forthcoming Disney Plus streaming service, some of the newly announced shows will roll into the MCU canon and feed directly into the films, as Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige confirmed at SDCC and declared the Marvel Phase 4. These Disney Plus series will be overseen by Feige and will reportedly have bigger budgets than what’s typically allocated for television shows.

Earlier MCU shows like the Netflix series and ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. were and are (respectively) produced by Marvel TV, under the guide of Executive Vice President and Head of Television Jeph Loeb. But they were never explicitly referenced by the movies (more on that below).

With all that in mind, here’s what we know is coming through 2021, both rumored and confirmed. And we’ll be sure to keep this list updated as things evolve and grow!
