The upcoming calendar for the Marvel Cinematic Universe has seen a shake-up. Tea Black Panther sequel Wakanda Forever will now be the final installment of the franchise’s Phase 4, and the third Ant-Man and the Wasp movie, Quantumania, will begin Phase 5, Kevin Feige announced Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con.
We already knew that most of these shows and movies were coming, but now we have dates for many of them (and actual titles for some, as well). All of Phase 5 has been plotted out, as well as some of Phase 6.
Here’s the calendar as it stands right now for Phase 5 and 6 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The third movie in the Ant-Man series brings back director Peyton Reed and stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, and Michelle Pfeiffer. New to this particular mini-franchise are Kathryn Newton (now playing Cassie Lang, Scott’s daughter), Jonathan Majors’ Kang the Conqueror (but a different version than the one that showed up in Loki season one), and Bill Murray.
Scott Lang has saved the universe, so he’s taking some time to himself and writing a book. We already know from Ms.Marvel he has a podcast. What could go wrong?
This upcoming series sees Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Talos (Ben Mendolsohn) team up in a conspiracy thriller where Skrulls have infiltrated Earth at the highest levels. At SDCC, Cobie Smulder described the show as a “guessing game” between humans and Skrull. Emilia Clark and Olivia Colman also feature in the cast. The series will be directed by Thomas Bezucha (Big Eden) and Ali Selem (sweetland), and written by Kyle Bradstreet (Mr Robot).
