Marvel Studios Announces Four New Phase 4 Film Slots


Marvel Studios announces that they will be adding four new film slots to their lineup of movies in development. The dates all take up 2024, the first one on February 16th of that year, followed by May 3rd, then July 26th, then finally November 8th. This lineup adds to the other three unknown films planned for 2023, specifically July 28th, October 6th and November 3rd of that year.

The lineup of films yet to be released consist of:

– The Eternals (Nov. 5th 2021)
– Spider-Man: No Way Home (Dec. 17th, 2021)
– Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (Mar. 25th 2022)
– Thor: Love and Thunder (May. 6th 2022)
– Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (Jul. 8th 2022)
– The Marvels (Nov. 11th 2022)
– Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania (Feb. 17th 2023)
– Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (May. 5 2023)
– Fantastic Four (Unknown)

Speculation has begun as to what these untitled films will be. Marvel has announced in the past that Blade, Captain America 4 and Deadpool 3 are in development so perhaps these, along with Fantastic Four take up four of those slots. The X-Men are also planned to join the MCU in the future, so perhaps they will be apart of this set of untitled films. Marvel has said they plans until 2028 have been made so all we can do is speculate the future.

Some have criticized Marvel for the lack of clarity in their release schedule. When Marvel announced their lineup of Phase 3 films back in 2014 they showed off (almost) every film that would release from 2015 – 2019, however the Inhumans film was canceled and the Sony Deal for Spider-Man had yet to be made, as well as Ant-Man and The Wasp not starting development yet, but I digress. They announced their entire slate at the time years prior to the end of the “Infinity Saga”, but already a few films into Phase 4 we still aren’t aware of all the films yet to come in this Phase and where Phase 5 begins. Perhaps to make fans more excited they should announce their planned lineup instead of keeping it shorted in mystery.
